    I have two laptops one is a dell inspiron and

    If this is a windows XP. Then you can reset the password with the following method without making any changes to the data. However it may not work if the first owner has put password on the administrator user account. Solution: Start the computer in safe mode by tapping F8 key several times while booting. Then login to the administrator account. Go to Start - Control Panel - User Accounts - Click the user and click on change password. and change the password to any new one. Or you may simply type USERPASSWORDS2 in run and reset the password for any user. ----------------------------------- If that does not work then you can Press F11 key at the very beggining of starting the computer and do a factory reset to he laptop and he laptop will become like a brand new laptop.

    remove the cmos battery for 30 secs at least - usually works

    also try looking in your manual for mention of a cmos reset jumper,
    short these 2 pins and it should reset your bios to defaults and remove any passwords
