How do I unlock my computer? Apparently I hit the lock button by accident

I own a Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop. For the 2nd time in the past 6 months, I receive a notice that my laptop is locked and I need to type in my password after the screensaver has finished running thru photos I uploaded. I don't know why this happens and I can't find information as to how I unlock my computer. I know I have the lock button, but I should think I can just as easily unlock my laptop. Sharon

I have a laptop dell inspiron e1505 and its lock


If you have the guest account enabled, plug in a USB and create a forgot password file on the USB, it works for all user accounts on the computer. This only works for Windows 7 (from experience)

I have a Dell Inspiron e1505 laptop that just won't come on.


hi, your laptop led`s are also there for diagnostic purposes, if the caps lock and scroll lock (the one on right of caps) are flashing before going off, it means your system is not detecting the RAM so either your ram has failed or the motherboard is faulty

The keyboard on laptop is locked.


Are any of the keys stuck down?

Does it do this when you reboot the machine e.g. can you press F2 or Del to go into setup?

Also are you familiar with the 2nd function keys onthe laptop (usually defined in blue on the key) to access these you usually press a "Fn" button to activate the blue part. Maybe you activated a keyboard lock by accident. If you have the manual maybe check this or call dell support as previously mentioned.

Blank screen when powered on.


Do you have any CD’s that came with your laptop? If so, look for one that has “Diagnostics and utilities” listed under the “Contents”. To boot from that CD disk, power on your laptop and tap the <F12> key to bring you to the “One time boot menu”. Insert the CD and then select CD/DVD drive and hit <Enter> key. You can also boot from the Windows reinstallation disk. If the computer boots from either CD, then your Operating System is corrupted and needs to be reloaded.
