If she's getting a Windows Welcome screen, then the system is booting and there's no obvious sign of a hard drive password (I've rarely seen these used anyway but they can be removed in some cases.)

1. You'll have to find a Password clear boot CD. There's one by HIRENS that can do it, but I use a simple one found by searching "Offline Windows Password & Registry Editor". You will have to know how do do these things: 1. Change the boot order of your laptop by going into the BIOS setup and make sure the boot order starts with the optical drive (be it DVD or CD) before the internal hard drive. If you cannot change the boot order due to a BIOS password, it can be cleared but you'll need to remove the CMOS clock battery and that requires taking the laptop apart.

2. Download the boot CD ISO and burn it to a physical CD. This is the recommended way to do it.

3. Get that CD you burned into the drive on the laptop and boot it.

Either CD you end up with, it will boot a small version of Linux and then give you the option at some point to clear the Windows user password. If you do not know what you're looking at to find the proper Windows install on your drive, it is suggested you have someone look for it and use the password clear CD to help you accomplish it.

It should conceivably easy to find what you need to change, and you get to see what it finds before you change anything. Ganbatte kudasai!

- Select Fix your Computer and press Enter.
- Click Next when you get to the keyboard/language page.
- If asked for a password, Type your password when you log in to your desktop.
- System will automatically restore your computer to factory image/settings.

Note: Your files will be deleted when you restore system to factory image.

Dell inspirion 2200 notebook screen really dim cant see hooked up another monitor and it works . how can i fix?

If your screen is dim but still displays everything then please check if the screen's brightness has not been accidentally reduced. If that is okay, then you have a damaged screen inverter and it needs to be changed. If the screen does not display at all, then you may have to change your screen.

All the best.

Try to login in the Administrator account, press Ctrl+Alt+Del (2 or 3 times) in the welcome screen and you'll get a login square, in username name type Administrator and password leave it blank if it logins without a password go to control panel and create new accounts.
