If you let me know the Operating system type, i can help you better, well try this.. actually this is for windows Xp, when you get onto the logon screen, press "ctrl+alt+delete" simultaneously several times, you'll be presented with a different logon screen (dialog box), type "administrator" in the logon name and press enter/Ok. I hope that you've tried blank passwords. Anyway Good luck and let me know the operating system type if you still get time before you turn into the real ....

Need system unlock code for Dimension E520


Which Password? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password?

Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista? Windows 7?

I'm going to assume by your request above that it is the Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password.

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightenedsecurity on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of thepeople who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

Once i open my computer dell 1535 it request for system adminstrator password which i do not have?help please


I have few questions before we proceed, is the question being asked before you reach the "logon screen"?. There are different passwords like bios password, hdd password, and user password. If you didn't set the user administrator password, just leave it blank and hit enter. Please let me know with the operating system running on your system. Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

ok i had to do this with my mothers computer, when you delete a partition, you have to make a new one in its place, i say put in the xp cd, then say to create a whole new windows installation, when it asks you to choose a partition, delete all partitions, then make a new one, your choice to size but keep it enough to at least install windows onto it, then after that just reformat that partition and install windows, that should fix it.

Password


Try pressing "ok" if you did not set a password. Otherwise a password must be set on the computer like the one at the log on screen.

Black screen asking for password! Why?


Battery issue is not connected with the logon issue. The logon screen usually asks for password if you have set a password for the user account or if you have added a guest or another limited account. You may disable this by disabling the password (if you only have one user account) or by using Tweak UI for XP
