Forgot my adminastrator password

You should be able to restart the computer and upon restart start tapping the F8 key to go into Safe Mode. Once you are in, you should be able to clear the password, restart normally into Windows and you should not be prompted for the password.

I want to add a second hard drive (SATA) to a Dell insperon 530. Where does it connect to the motherboard?

Every SATA enabled motherboard has atleast 2 SATA ports. Trace the first SATA cable and you'll find another port closer. If your Optical drive is connected to it, and if you can find an IDE port on your motherboard, buy an IDE to SATA convertor and plug it in.
