    What do you mean by "reset"? Are you trying to restore or do you want to format and start fresh?

    To reset the a forgotten Windows password on Windows XP you can try starting the computer and pressing F8 to boot into safe mode. From there you can go into the control panel and choose accounts to change the password. You can also boot to the windows disk and reinstall windows. Another option is to search the internet for password reset software. There is usually a fee for their services.

    I forgot my windows login password for a dell studio 1737 laptop

    What OS are you having?

    On XP you can try this:
    Boot computer and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you See Windows welcome screen / login screen. It'll show classic login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press Enter and you should be able to login Windows.
    Now you can reset windows password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".

    On Win 7 or Vista:
    Ctrl+Alt+Delete won't work, you have to use some windows password recovery software. I recommend Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0 .

    I forgot my adminstrative password for dell dimension 2400 pc (windows xp)

    Forgot Windows XP password? The first thing which you check is whether you forgot windows xp login password or not. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forgot your user account password then try this:
    Start system 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.
    Windows XP and further versions also provide another method to recover forgotten Password by using "Reset Disk". If you created a Password Reset Disk in past, you can use that disk to reset the password. Or try free program called Ophcrack or Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0.
