If you don't care about the current files and folders, you'll need to reinstall the OS from the disk. I assume you have it. Pop the CD into the drive and power off the laptop then power it back on. It should boot to the CD and give you the option to reinstall the software. If not, power cycle (off then on again) and press F12 repeatedly as it powers up. This will give you the option of what to boot from. Choose the CD drive and start the install process.
If you don't have a disc to reinstall from, your last option is some password recovery software. You can google that for options, but I have nothing to recommend as I've not had occasion to use them.
Please rate my answer accordingly if you feel I helped you out. Thanks for using

I forgot my Dell Dimension E310 administrator password and can't log in. What should I do? Should I call Dell to reset the password or switch the administrator to another user?

That would be the best solution. As long as you can login and the account has administrator rights.

Lost Windows password:

  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like

I forgot the passwork to my laptop how do i reset?

Login on another account that has administrator rights, then change or reset the password for the account you are having problem logging into.
If you don't have other accounts that have admin rights, try to use the "Offline NT Password & Registry Editor", it works on different version of windows even the old ones. - You may download it from For additional guides about using the offline NT password and registry editor, please visit
Hope this helps.

I can't get me Windows updates without an administrator password, and I don't know it.

Best is to reset the administrator password using the Offline NT Password & Registry editor.
You can download it at the following link:

This utility will enable you to reset the password of any user that has a valid (local) account on your Windows NT/2k/XP/Vista etc system.
The link above includes some directions on how to use this utility. But the basic idea is to download the ISO image & burn it to a CD. Then use this CD to boot up your laptop & reset the administrator password.

Simply call, Email, or use Online Chat from and give them your Service Tag, and they can help you out from there.

Forgot login password & fingerprint swipe isn't working

There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but I’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
it not only supports XP, 2000, and NT, I have personally tested it with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate. It works perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password
You can use the ISO to burn a boot CD. Follow these instructions:
1. Download ISO file from Windows Password Recovery Tool
2. Burn to a CD using a CD burning tool such as Nero or Roxio or MagicISO
3. Insert CD into drive and reboot.
4. You may have to select an option in the BIOS to get the computer to boot from the CD.
Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm.
