Go to safe mode to reset it?
star the PC and press F8 then go to :Administrator

then enter “net user "your user ID" 1234 /add”, then your user ID password is 1234.

I think Hack Dell inspiron 1501 password is the same as the IBM.

I just read an article in Maxium PC about this, below is a link:

Here is what it said:

You forgot your Windows XP password? No problem. With a handy PC lockpick you can crack that OS wide open. To make one, all you need is a PC, an empty 2GB USB key, and an Internet connection. First, download the USB version of Back Track 3 from This Linux-based distro is made for penetration testing of networks and computers, and it’s free (although donations are welcome). Extract the contents of the Back Track 3 ISO to a folder on your desktop using WinISO ( or Universal Extractor (
Next, format the USB key as a FAT32 drive from Windows. Copy the contents of the ISO to the flash key. Now go to Start, then Run, and type cmd; go to the flash drive by typing G: (or whatever letter was assigned to the drive). Type CD bootinst, hit Enter, and then type bootinst to start the batch file that creates a bootable master boot record (MBR) on the flash drive.
To try out your lockpick, reboot the machine and either manually change the boot order in the BIOS or use the usual shortcut that most machines have today: hit ESC, F10, or F12 during boot to choose from a list of boot devices. Choose the USB key option. You should see Back Track 3 loading on the screen as you would any OS. You’ll then have a choice of multiple versions to run—we’ve had the most success with the VESA version. (If you’re successful getting the key to boot once, but it stops working after a reset, you may have to go back and run bootinst again to re-create the MBR). Once you’re in Back Track 3, you can pick from numerous penetration methods, but for a simple password change, use winlockpwn.
Back Track 3 isn’t just a lockpick—it offers a huge assortment of publicly available tools all rolled into one multi-tool for cracking Wi-Fi, spoofing, and sniffing.

Son put a password and it doesn't unlock my

If you have any other users you can try to remove your son's password from the other user account. If you don't then you'll need a password reset boot disk.

Hi, my daughter has a dell inspiron 1501 used from my sister. and well it was working fine . then we did not have it on for while and now when it comes on asking for the password it doesnt work. we use all...

When your computer boots and the login screen appears press control(ctrl) + alt + delete twice. This will bring up a window asking you for your username and password.
Type "administrator" without the quotes as the username and leave the password field blank. Press OK.
When you are logged in as an administrator change the password for your old username using control panel>user accounts.

If this doesn't work then you need to reset the administrator password. Visit this link -> >LINK<
