Your computer then has saved to the hard drive whatever has been pressed on the keyboard as your password. Shutting it off automatically by default saves such work before powering down.

Look on the bottom of the computer chassis for a small hole about the size of a sharpened pencil lead. With the computer on, use a small object such as a hair pin that will fit in the hole...it is a reset button. Hold it down until the computer shuts off. Then reboot. This MAY solve your problem.

Need to change username and password on my laptop i have windows 7 ultimate


Did you get a recovery disk that the first buyer should have made? If not, you may need to borrow the exact same one from someone and use your key which you should have gotten when you bought it and reload the system. That's only if the seller can't or won't tell you what his is.

I recently bought a Dell inspiron 5000e from the local Goodwill store and I don't know the username required to use this laptop.Is there a way to unlock or reset the computer profile?


Check with your local Goodwill store. they might have set the password from their store. If not, then since the system is new, you can just reset it back to factory image.

Restart your computer and when you see the Dell logo, keep tapping F8. Select "Repair Your Computer". It will give you options how to recover your system to factory image. Otherwise, if you're required to type the password since you don't knows it, you might end up re-installing the Operating system.

Password fogotten


If you are using windows you can press ctrl + alt + delete
twice at the login screen and it will give a login screen that looks a little different. Type in the username box administrator
and leave the password blank and hit ok/login.
This should get you to the point when you can then change your password, if you get in and change change your password post back and I will gladly assist you with doing that.

One of the ways to reset your username and password is with a boot CD with a password reset tool on it. You can download a CD image from this site: http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/

There is a walkthrough and instructions on how to burn the CD and use it on that same page.
