Question about Computers & Internet
I forgot my password for my Dell Latitude E6400, My Laptop loads the Dell Screen then it goes to a white screen that says "This Computer System #******* is protected by a Password Authentication System. You cannot access the data on this computer without the correct Password. please type in the system or Administrator Password and press enter. I've tried the F2 and F12 booting options but it just says "preparing booting options" and just goes to the Password screen again. I have all of the data backed up so none of it is important, I've tried to use the Genuine disc that came with my Laptop but it won't recognize it. can anyone help me Bypass this Password without having to go to Dell, I don't have the money to pay 80-120 dollars to them to help me. or if someone can help me get the Laptop to recognize the disc so I can Wipe the computer myself and reinstall my Windows 7 Professional 32 bit program I would be very thankful.
This lock screen comes up before the boot process so Hiren's wont help you here.
You need to take off the CMOS battery - on the E6400, if you flip the laptop over, there is one central screw....undo it and slide the panel off toward the front of the laptop. Lift it off. You'll see the CMOS battery just to the left of the fan (assuming the front edge of the laptop is nearest you). Disconnect it carefully.....take the main battery off too. Flip the laptop over and hold the power button for 20 secs. Now flip it back, CMOS battery back in, main battery back on. Put the cover back on too and sit it upright again - power up, wait for the "Bad checksum" or "BIOS settings have changed" message. Set the time and date in the BIOS. Reboot - then the laptop boots up.

You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program.
