All modern laptops are coming with a hidden recovery partition - this way they no longer have to give you separate recovery disks so they save some bucks.
Press F12 while the laptop starts - you will be presented with an screen with at least 2 options : to boot from the install partition or to access the recovery partition - select the second one. Once you have done that it will be just like you would have used regular recovery disks - follow the instructions on the screen.

    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. XP only.
    • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.

    Computer password


    When your computer starts up, push the right "F" button (for me it is F12) and navigate until you find the start up mode called "Safe Mode". You can't do much here but it can delete administrator passwords. Go to control panel and user options, click the user and click remove password. It should work, I just forget how to enter Safe Mode. It took me about 5 reboots to find it.

    Ex-girl put password as the adminastrator and i dont know it also my 1501 dell wont start in safe mode


    Hate to say this .. if the BIOS is locked , there is nothing much, that can be done.
    You need to call Dell Tech support , verify the account information and they would give you an unlock code for the BIOS . Once thats is done opening windows is easy .

    Forgotten password


    If you lost your windows password, try a program called "ophcrack-win32-installer-3.0.1.exe" or "ophcrack-xp-livecd-2.0.1.iso". These will crack and show any windows based usename and password on your computer.  If the problem is the bios password, for starting your laptop, then you will have to reset the bios (check manual) or remove the battery pack and on board Li battery to reset Bios. I would check the manual first. On old Toshiba laptops you could jump the parrallel pins to reset the bios, not sure on the Gateway. I will check further.
