Try the backdoor password Dell

With a PSWD Reset Jumper Step 1Open the access panel to the password reset jumper if your Dell laptop has one. Consult your manual for the access panel's location. Some access panels have a tab you slide, while others are held in place with a screw.
Step 2Pry the plastic cover off the reset jumper with your fingernail. The reset jumper is a small pin port labeled "PSWD" with three pins. Put the plastic back onto the jumper over pin 1 and 2 instead of 2 and 3. Wait 90 seconds.
Step 3Pry the plastic off the reset jumper again and place it back onto the number 2 and 3 pins. Turn the laptop on. Repeat step 2 if the password is still present. Leave the plastic clip on pins 1 and 2 for a longer duration than last time.

Without a PSWD Reset Jumper Step 1Locate the reserve battery, also known as the CMOS battery, if your Dell laptop is not equipped with a password reset jumper. The CMOS battery's location varies among Dell laptop models. Consult your manual for the battery's location on your specific Dell laptop model. Many Dell reserve batteries are located underneath the main laptop battery. Remove the main battery and look for a sticker under it with instructions on removing the secondary CMOS battery.
Step 2Remove your Dell's reserve battery per the instruction manual or sticker located under the main battery. Removing the reserve battery resets the laptop's BIOS password. Wait 90 seconds, then replace the reserve battery. Reconnect the main battery.
Step 3Press the "Power" button to turn the laptop on.

SOURCE: Help..Can't boot and forgot bios password

If you can get to the CMOS battery, there should be a set of jumpers close by that should say Clear CMOS or CMOS reset, or something to that effect. There are usually 3 pins, and the jumper is between 2 of them. Remove the jumper and put back over the pin that was open, and the pin next to it that was jumped before. Leave it for a few seconds, then put back to original position. This should clear the bios, and all you in.

Here is a link to the laptops manual

Good luck, and please rate me, OK?

Why does my computer on bootup ask for system password then locks up too many attempts?


If you mean Bios password try this:
Resetting the BIOS PSSWRD, Open the computer case and look inside on the motherboard. Dell has diagrams of this. Locate the Little Jumper. It should have small print if you can read on the mother board indicating PSSWRD CLR. Boot the computer to Setup. Carefully remove jumper, becareful of static, and then once removed hit enter. Shutdown the computer, and restart and enter Setup again F2. The password should be CLR. Turn OFF and PUT Jumper back into place and Turn Back ON. You should be able to access Setup.

If you then boot to setup-check your hard drives and floppy that are seen. You may solve those issues in setup.

If you mean the windows password: boot to F8 safe mode and log
on to the ADMINISTRATOR not your log in that has admin rights.
Disable all passwords and restart.

Windows Password Recovery is right what you need in your case. The program is designed to reset Windows login password once you accidentally forgot it or have no access to your system. By burning a bootable CD, you can enter almost any computer with Windows administrator login password protected within a few seconds. Here are the step by step tutorial, pretty easy!

Step 1: Download Windows Password Recovery and install it on another computer.
Step 2: Prepare a blank CD/USB and run the software and use it to burn the ISO file to it.
Step 3: Put it into the CD-ROm and restart your locked computer. Change the BIOS setting of your locked computer to make it boot from the CD-ROM or USB drive (Start computer and press F2 or Delete to enter BISO setup)
Step 4: Boot your locked computer from the created disk and remove your forgotten password.

Administrator password help/ password boot cd


Hello pink,

In order for your PC to read your CD on boot, you don't have to enter your BIOS settings. When you start your computer, press the F12 button repeatedly (like F12-F12-F12-F12), and your pc will ask you which boot device you would like to use.
http://ice.he.net/~hedden//images/F2_for_Setup_Dell.jpg

It will show you a screen like this:

Just select your CDROM in the list, and hit enter. this will read your bootable CD.

I hope this helps.
Jerry.
