I'm assuming you are not using the default "ADMINISTRATOR" account of windows. Try this if thats the case on the user name screen

  • Press CTRL+ALT+DEL twice
It gives you the lon on screen
  • In the username enter "ADMINISTRATOR" and hit enter
and you will be able to go on the desktop.Then you can remove the
password for your preferred accout.
From CONTROL PANEL>USER ACCOUNT. Select the account you wanna remove the password and Click on
Lemme know if that helps.

Hi
Just open your CPU,then look for the battery number 2025,then take it out for 5 minutes,and put it back. The purpose of taking out the battery is to reset the password back to its default.

How do you reset a forgotten password for dell dimension c521


I think it's F12 or F10 on boot up will restore it to factory, beware it does put all setting and folders back to factory settings to, so any data will be lost, it will be just as it came out of the box.

Hope this helps

Sister has forgotten password


Hi,

If she cannot remember the password you can reset it. This will require a seperate computer with a CD burner and a blank CD to make a bootable disk, then simply follow the instructions on the page linked below.

Before resetting the password check the lights for your keyboard though. You may have your number lock turned on which will turn 789UIOKJLM into 7894561230 creating a number pad on your keyboard. If this is the case find the key marked "num lk" if it is the same colour as the letters pressing it should disable the number pad, if it is surrounded by a line or a different colour you will need to hold down the Fn key then press num lk to enable/disable the numberpad, you should see a light with a picture of a lock come on and off to denote number pad on or off. Ensure it is off then retry logging on with her password. If it still doesn't work, then procede to the link below and follow the instructions carefully.
