Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
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.
