    Hello,
    If you have any other information as to when it asks for the password I maybe be able to help you get around it. If you are sure it's the BIOS password and want to give Dell a try here's a number that may help you out a little. (Dell, 1-800-624-9896)

    You know it's the BIOS password if it asks for the password before you get to Windows. If you get to Windows and it asks you to "Choose a User" then you may be able to get around it.

    Thanks!
    Kenny

    If this is a BIOS password a factory reset will not do it .. you have to get past the BIOS password FIRST .. Try contacting Dell .. Good Luck

Now, we collect some ways to reset Dell Latitude password if forgot password again.

1. With created Dell Latitude password reset disk to recover lost Windows XP, 7, etc. password.
Though it maybe the most efficient way to help us in case we meet such password problem, most of us may not make sense of the importance of the disk for us PC users. The disk needs to be created before we forgot Dell Latitude password or once we set the account. If you did not have one, now look for Dell Password Reset Disk.

Step 1. Press F8 when Latitude laptop starts. Select "Safe Mode with Command Prompt" and Enter.
Step 2. At the login screen with computer user accounts, choose an available account to login. Please note that the Administrator account (default/built-in) password is blank if never set password for it before.
Step 3. In Safe Mode, Dos command displays. Input "net user" and press Enter to list all the user names in Windows XP computer. Then input "net user Linda 123456" (Linda is the locked account name and 123456 is the new password set on this account) and press Enter. Then we will see "The command completed successfully."
Step 4. Input "shutdown -r" and press Enter to restart the system, then we can access "Linda" account in normal logon mode.

3. Easy to recover lost Dell Latitude Windows password by DIY a password reset disk.
DIY password reset disk is just to say, burn an .iso image file into a bootable CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive for the lost account after forgotten Windows password. The .iso file can be mainly got from professional password recovery software. Take one of the most popular software - Windows Password Recovery Corporation as example:
Step 1. Download Windows Password Recovery Corporation and burn .iso file to a bootable CD/DVD/USB via an accessible PC.
Step 2. Boot the target computer from CD/DVD/USB.

I do not have the username and password for my new Dell latitude 2120


There are 3 ways for you to reset Dell Latitude password. Let's specify them in 3 parts.

Part 1: Using a Password Reset Disk

When you create Windows user accounts for your Dell Latitude, you can also create a password reset disk at the same time with a USB flash drive or a floppy disk to reset forgotten password afterwards, which means you have to make this tool before you forgot Dell Latitude password. Meanwhile, this password reset disk can reset only local user account password. If you want to unlock dell latitude without password or disk, or your Dell Latitude is on a domain, please refer to Part 3.

Part 2: Reinstalling Windows System

If you have no password reset disk, Dell Latitude will suggest you to reinstall Windows system when you forgot password. However, the cost of reinstallation is huge because all your settings and data in C drive will be lost. If you don't want to lose resources on your Dell Latitude laptop, try the following method.

Part 3: Using Dell Latitude Password Reset (Reset Password without Disk)

If you want to unlock Dell Latitude (d620) without password or disk, Windows Password Recovery (Windows Password Recovery Tool) will be your best choice to access Windows 8.1/8/7/Vista/XP adminitrator in dell . It is specially designed to reset any local or domain account password without system reinstallation when you forgot password and can't log into Windows OS on Dell Latitude laptop. Here is the example of Dell Latitude admin (administrator) password reset. What you need is just a USB flash drive or a blank CD/DVD and an available computer.
Note: The steps to reset other user account password (no matter whether it is a local or a domain one) are the same.
  • Step 1: Download and install Dell Latitude Password Reset on the available computer.
  • Step 2: Insert a USB flash drive or a blank CD/DVD on the computer, specify the burning device, and click "Burn".
  • Step 3: Click "Yes" and "OK" button in the pop-up windows.
  • Step 4: Insert the newly created USB flash drive or CD/DVD on your Dell Latitude and reboot it. Select the Windows installation you want to reset the password, choose "Reset your password" and click "Next".
  • Step 5: Select the administrator account, choose "Remove the password" and click "Next". In the pop-up window, click "Reboot".

I have forgot my password on a dell Latitude C610 pc notebook


Yes you can reset your bios settings to factory defaults then it not ask for password.

For that open back side of laptop then you can find motherbord chipset.
Pull cmos cell from motherbord for 10 minutes so all settings are defaults.

Let me know if you need more assistanse.
Thanks
