I forgot my password for my dell optiplex 740?


I think you are running on Windows vista or 7, in this case you have to remember the Administrative password. Reboot your PC and before Windows logo arrive press F8 couple of times, a list of option will arive, choose "Safe Mode" you should be able to login with an Administrative account. From there go to ccontrol panel> accounts .. delete the account and add a new one.

In case if you forgot the Administrative password you have to hack into the system and delete the account:

I could not do Map Network Drive from other pc to my Dell Inspiron 1501. It looks like security setting is violated. I got message saying 'c' is available but the user account that you are logged on with...


If you are using Window's XP or later the problem is probably the account you are logged into doesn't have "administrative access". You will have to log into the administrative account to make network changes.

If you are running Vista the default administrative account is hidden. To access it do the following: First you’ll need to open a command prompt in administrator mode by right-clicking and choosing “Run as administrator” (or use the Ctrl+Shift+Enter shortcut from the search box)

Now type the following command :
net user administrator /active:yes

You should see a message that the command completed successfully. Log out, and you’ll now see the Administrator account as a choice. (Note that the screenshots are from Vista, but this works on Windows 7)

You’ll note that there’s no password for this account, so if you want to leave it enabled you should change the password.
Disable Built-in Administrator Account
Make sure you are logged on as your regular user account, and then open an administrator mode command prompt as above. Type the following command:
net user administrator /active:no

The administrator account will now be disabled, and shouldn’t show up on the login screen anymore.

Windows Vista Home Basic


The administrator user is locked by default with Windows Vista. You can unlock it from the command prompt if you have access to an account with administrative privileges (which I'm assuming you son't have access to).

There are a number of bootable CDs you can download that will allow you to remove a password or unlock the administrative user, but some of them can be slightly complicated processes. My preference is the Ubuntu Live CD. If you want more detail on the discs let me know.

Forgot Administrative password


I got the following from the windows help and support:

OPTION 1
Using a password reset disk is the best solution.
  1. If you have typed the wrong password, you'll get a message that says your user name or password is incorrect. When this message appears, click OK.
  2. Click Reset password, and then follow the instructions.
OPTION 2

If there is another administrator account on the computer, that administrator can change the password for the account you can't remember the password for. If you do this, however, you will lose access to any encrypted files, encrypted e‑mail messages, and passwords stored on this account. If you don't have encrypted files or stored passwords, then this option will work for you


OPTION 3

If you don't have a password reset disk or another administrator account, you won't be able to reset the password. If there are no other user accounts on the computer, you won't be able to log on to Windows. In this case, you will need to re-install Windows.
