Vista will always prompt you for a password. If you didn't set one, then it's still blank.

Hey guys I am trying to factory reset my inspiron 531s and have done this once before. I tried the f8 option. where you go to the advanced boot option and press enter on the "repair my computer"...

If neither the F8 repair, or Ctrl+F11 work, then you are left with using the recovery disks that you (hopefully!) burned when you bought the machine. If you didn't burn a set, then using a Microsoft disk with the right OS on it (i.e. Vista Home Premium, or Windows 7 Home Premium) should work. When you are asked to enter the key, you should be able to use the key provided on the label.

If the machine is still working though (which it looks like it may be doing, from what you have written), then you should still be able to make/burn a set of recovery disks.

The link HERE should also provide some support (it's Dell's website) - it has guide books on using the software.

Can you get ANY numbers off the sticker? What you can do is contact DELL and give them your service tag number, they should have your product key (on the bottom as well). Also, the number should be in the CD sleeve that came with the laptop.

I have a dell inspiron lap top with window's vista. There is a problem with it. Even when I turn it on with safe mode it goes to the log in screen, then says welcome, and then it goes to a black screen...

Usually what happens with my Dell Inspiron desktop, even on safe mode it goes to the logon screen. I have never experienced that with my Dell Inspiron 1318. When you log in and it shows you the black screen, try pressing the function buttons. Try F8 or F12. You should be able to start the computer in Safe Mode. If possible, enter Safe Mode with Networking so that you are able to search the web. If you don't mind me asking, why is it that you need safe mode? Is it a virus?
