Question about Dell Inspiron 1420 Notebook

1 Answer

When I turn on my Dell Inspiron 1420 and the password screen comes up, I put in my password and it says it is wrong. I haven't changed it and now it is wanting me to reset password. Is there anyway to do this without purchasing software?

The problem with these kinds of questions is that passwords are there for a reason, and we can't know the validity of that it's your computer OR your password. There are easy work arounds, but you will have to google them as they could be unethical, so I can not in good faith tell you how to bypass someone's password.

You'll need to know your OS and you'll probably need access to a 2nd computer to burn a CD, or at least you'll need a USB stick.

For anyone who runs into this problem, and you've MADE CERTAIN you're entering your user name, if asked, AND you've tried logging in in safe mode (usually hitting the "f8" button while booting on windows OS's gets you a safe-mode menu) with no luck or results, make sure when you DO figure out the solution, that you WRITE DOWN your password somewhere.
Passwords don't change, unless YOU change them.
Or it's not your computer.
