Hi,if you have another administrator account goto start> type cmd> type"net user administrator (your new password here)">enter if you dont have other account try to search internet some software can delete password from startup screen but you must write it on a DVD and make sure your first or primary boot device is your dvd writer, then follow the instructions kind regards
I have just done this. One needs to dismantle the laptop first. Solder a push button switch with extended wires across pins 4&5 of the serial eeprom 24c02. Then reconnect the screen, keyboard & a/c power pack. with a tooth pick press power on switch whilst holding push button on. When the factory mode screen comes on release the push button. Next go to bios setup F2 and ALT-p to the password page. Now enter your new password this will overwrite the old pass word. My approach is slightly different to this following method as it is les likely to brick the laptop. http://www.archive.org/web/2003110302606
if you are referring to a BIOS password, you need to contact dell tech support for this one.
if you are referring to a windows password, you can go to safemode, logon as administrator(normally admin account doesn't have any passwod) , and remove the password the user account you want to logon to.
first of reset bios to default.
you can can use any xp disk as long as you have cd key(any valid cd key for that matter)and install fresh copy (factory set/default)
eg I have 4 laptops and a tower pc all of which I have xp pro installed from same disk and same key +sp3 and ie8 and nav360
If you're locked out of your computer, you can use a program such as OphCrack to recover passwords for local accounts. The LiveCD is incredibly easy to use, just boot from it and it does everything automatically.
