    Hi David Morrison, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box?

    Is this the computer BIOS password or your Windows User password?

If you are referring to windows itself then the previous suggestions are appropriate. If you put a password on through bios then this is much more difficult. there are many tricks other have used from bypassing to opening the computer case and altering a few things. here is a link to something I can say does work if your problem is a password through bios not windows. How to Bypass or Remove BIOS Password Technibble
Sometimes depending on system and age you can use a default password through windows that is a backup a lot of people are unaware of..... Admin, Administrator or password. Are ones that usually will allow access. Re-installing your OS will only resolve the issue if it is not bios related and should be used as a last resort.
I hope this gives a little insight if nothing else.

Boot in Safe Mode and run a System Restore which will take your machine back to the last time you signed in correctly.

After that, reset your password when the screen prompts you too...

You could try starting it in safe mode and then deleting the password requirement. Another way may be to set a new administrator account, then go into the set up and reduce the existing account to the status of secondary account. Once that is accomplished, then remove the request for passwords. Sometimes these passwords are actually in the BIOS, then go into the BIOS and remove all password requirements.
Frankly after a "problem" with a password I stopped using them for the machine, however, I opened a second user that was password protected and then use that and all that was in the administrator files a copy of the password!
Children are extremely good at changing passwords for you!

SOURCE: When I take the computer out of the standby mode

Try this:

  1. Update the BIOS and Video driver to the most current on http://support.dell.com
  2. Disable the screen saver
  3. Enable HIBERNATE instead of standby in Power settings, set the LCD to go off in 10 minutes, HDD to 15 and Hibernate in 20.
Select Shutdown, Hibernate
then try and restart

If no GO, disconnect all peripheral items except KB

Try hibernate again and restart.

If all works OK, add items back one at a time till you find item causing issue. If no go, replace power supply if issue still occurs, replace MB

Most of the time my INspiron 530 does not boot up. the screen is blank and the fan runs high. Sometimes it beeps 4 times. What could be the problem?


Sounds like you have hard drive problems !! Check the Bios and see if the hard drive is being recognized or it might tell you that it is faulty by not showing up at all.

I forgot my password and I can't use my computer.how do I reset my password?


you can try pulling the motherboard battery for 10 min.(unplug the unit first) also on your board should be a jumper to clear it. it can be labled as clear CMOS or PW or PASS or any variation. most of the time this works. if it is a BIOS bassword this probably wont work and you will have to contact Dell. you will have to show proof of ownership and jump through hoops.
