there are two ways I normally use to reset the password

1. The simplest, turn off the laptop, then turn it back on and tap away on the "F8" key until the safe mode boot screen comes up. Once it's up select "Safe Mode" using the arrow keys then hit enter and wait for the login screen. If you're lucky the Administrator account will show up and will either have no password or just the word password as they tend to be blank or simple from the factory. Once you login as admin just go to your control panel, select classic view and go to the users icon. as the admin you can select to reset the password on any user account. Once you have reset your password, restart the laptop and away you go.

2. If you don't have an admin account or if it has a strong password, use another machine with a cd burner to search google for windows password reset disk, look for the free linux one(there are good paid ones but I find the free linux one eaiser to use in most cases). once you find it be sure to download both the .ISO(disk image) and the walkthrough. Read the walkthrough as you download and burn the CD. There are a couple lentghy points which are crucial.

This disk will allow you to reset the password on any NT based system(2000/XP/Vista)

Be warned though not folloing the walkthrough can cause your efforts to fail at best or ruin the windows install at worst so PLEASE read it and follow step by step.

You can reset the BIOS password. To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link. In case of your laptop I would recommend first using Kill CMOS software from Hiren's Boot CD.

My dell inspiron 6000 asks for an system autentication password

If you are getting a Grey and white screen asking for a BIOS or HDD master password, you'll need to contact Dell Tech support for a Master Password (USA 800-624-9896) confirm you are a authorized user and then you can get a master password. If out of warranty, a fee may be charged. If a HDD password and you are getting a prompt of ***********-595B then the HDD is bad and will need to be replaced
