SOURCE: Can't factory restore dell inspiron 531 (windows xp).

You might want to try going into setup and setting your boot drive options to DVD drive as your 1st, HD as 2nd and Floppy as 3rd. Put your windows disk in the DVD before boot and run the program from DVD.

Can t open my dell inspiron 1440 old one


For its time it was a good spec with Vista 64 and 4GB RAM and should still work well today. Three options.
1. Try logging into the administrator account in safe mode.
Start your PC and press F8 repeatedly before Windows loads to open Vista's Boot Options screen.
Select Safe Mode and press Enter.
On welcome screen choose the Administrator account, which by default has no password. Just hit return.
Goto Start / Control Panel / User Accounts and create a new user account with admin privileges
Close and restart PC and log into the new account.

2. Use a password recovery program
The following link shows 8 free password recovery programs.
http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/tp/passrecovery.htm

3. As a last resort reset to factory defaults. Dells normally come with a hidden recovery partition.
Either boot from the recovery disks you created or use the hidden partition for a fresh install.
To do a factory restore,on startup press Ctrl + F11 which will take you to the recovery partition so you can do a factory restore. This will then create new user accounts.
Good Luck

How to crack password of Windows.


There are too many tools are available to reset the password in windows. Here I’m recommending Hiren’s boot cd, because its freeware. You can download from the mentioned link.
After downloading extract the zip content and burn it to a CD.
Now boot your computer from the CD. You can see a window with so many options. Using your arrow keys select “DOS BOOT CD”.

Restart your computer during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there

if this fails to remove your password


The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.


click start control panel Open User Accounts in Control Panel. On the Users tab, click the name of the user whose password you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK. Notes You can change passwords only for local computer accounts, such as guest, administrator, or accounts you create for your computer. You cannot change your network logon password in User Accounts. To change your own password, press CTRL ALT DELETE and then click Change Password

I have a studio 1537 Dell laptop and I can not open nor can I change the password to get to Windows. Can you help


You got 2 options: 1-Start the pc and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl>+alt>+del> keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows. Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts". Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen. 2-Some computer systems have a setting in the BIOS Setup to disable the password. The BIOS Setup is accessed with the F1, F2 or DEL key during boot up. If you have forgotten your password, most systems have a jumper on the motherboard that can be pulled off to clear the password. If there is no jumper available, you can also remove the battery for 5 minutes to clear CMOS.

If you need more help post back!
Thumbs and testimonial are welcome!
