I assume you are talking about the Administrator's password on the CMOS.
You need to Flash the CMOS.
You can do that in two ways:
Remove the battery out of the motherboard for about 15 to 30 minutes.
Then reinsert it again.
Locate the CMOS jumpers (usually near by the battery) and short it, changing its place as instructed on the motherboard's instruction manual.

Both methods will reste the CMOS to the default factory values and the Administrator's password will be overwritten.

When you start your PC, before it lunches windows environment hit F8 Key, to enter security mode. thereafter, click on control panel=> User account==> delete or change your old Password.

On the other hand, if you can open your PC, just locate where the CMOS battery is and remove it/ and replace again. Start your pc again, your old password is gone.

I forgot my Dell Dimension E310 administrator password and can't log in. What should I do? Should I call Dell to reset the password or switch the administrator to another user?

That would be the best solution. As long as you can login and the account has administrator rights.

Lost Windows password:

  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like

Forgot Dell windows password ?

If you have already have one, so just do as below:
Here are the steps to use the disk for your password recovery.
Step 1: If you enter the wrong password when you attempt to log on, Windows will display a message that the password is incorrect. Click "OK" to close the message box.
Step 2: Click "Reset Windows Password", and then insert Windows password reset disk (or other removable media).
Step 3: Follow the steps in the "Password Reset Wizard" to create a new password.
Step 4: Log on with the new password.

If you do not have a reset disk, you can use Windows Password Reset ( ) to create one.

Try pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del twice on the login screen and you should be taken where you can enter a username. Put in "Administrator" (without the quotes), no password. You should be in.
