Question about Microsoft VISTA Computers & Internet
I was putting a password on my Dell Inspiron 1545, with vista OS, to keep the grand kids out, and had to take a call. I told my best friend to enter the name I gave, and hit enter. Later, I found that I was locked out and the name I gave my friend to enter does not work. Friend either misunderstood me, misspelled it, or used special case characters, but I have tried every combo I can think of and nothing works. Friend has been trying to remember exacly how it was entered, but can't, since that was this morning and we are both at the age of mental distraction.. It was a simple name with two numbers at the end, and as far as we know, it was spelled the same as I would have spelled it, unless a wayward finger hit an extra character and it was not noticed..?? All that aside, I cannot use my better laptop now and had to dig out this old clunky one. Is it possible to unlock the thing or recover the original password or get in another way, so I do not have to put it into the PC shop for medical assistance? Help!

SOURCE: Keyboard Reset?
try To download the latest drivers for the keyboard that you are using, visit the following Microsoft hardware Web site:
If the issue occurs again, connect the keyboard to a different computer. If the keyboard functions correctly on a different computer, the port to which the keyboard was connected on the original computer may be damaged. If this is the case, contact your computer manufacturer to inquire about how to repair or replace the damaged port.
If the keyboard does not function correctly on another computer, the keyboard may be defective. If this is the case, and the warranty on the keyboard is still valid, you can exchange the defective keyboard for a new keyboard.
good luck :)

Press ctrl alt del together then try to enter your password. If it doesn't work. restart your computer by holding down the power button for 10 seconds or until the computer turns off. Restart and tap F8 repeatedly as soon as the light comes on. Choose 'Last known good configuration' using your keyboard. Then press enter. Try if you can login now.

SOURCE: it has told me to
Some computers will have the product key attached to the computer in the form of a sticker. This sticker will have the product key as well as verifying that the Windows you are installing is authentic.
Please check the case for this sticker and if found, you should be able to install Windows using this key.
