I'm sorry to hear of your loss ... Your best bet is to fresh install the vista OS and start a new since you dont have the password. It is not likely you will get into the computer any other way ... If you are concerned about files which may be on the drive ... you should seel professional help to retrieve the files.

Thanks for using

My sister passed away and left me her tablet,I need to know how to set it up in my name.

You can go into the settings menu and do a factory reset. This is the easiest way however you will lose any and all data on the tablet including any pictures, contacts, etc. The other way is a little more complicated. You would need to access the settings> account menu. Add your own email account then delete hers. I assume you mean a password to lock the tablet. That would be under settings> security. You will need her password to enter then you should be prompted to enter a new password twice.

My dell inspiron 1546 says there is a primary hard drive password and a system password but why does it just shut down instead of letting me type a password?

Just answered a similar question. Did you set upthese passwords, or did some lame computer store geek do it? either way, you may have a BIOS sytem pass set up and need to know what that pass is. If repeatedly tap F2 or F10 when starting up it should take you to BIOS settings. If that is not the answer, and it windows password, you may have to image the hard drive in order to save documents on there and reinstall the drive. You can then view the image you saved (on another drive) to recover your docs.

I don't know what you mean by " THE OWNERSHIP PASSWORD" ? Are you connecting to a wired or wireless network? The video shows nothing. Can you be a bit more specific.

What is the default password for Dell Inspiron running windows vista

Well, forgot Dell windows password?

I don't know Dell's default password, however I know how to reset the windows vista password.

Three ways:
1. Another valid administrator account which can normally log on.
2. A password reset disk or a repair disc, which is created in advance ( before you lost password ).
3. Third-party software to create a bootable password reset CD/DVD or USB, like Windows Password Reset .

I can not get past the Bios password.

And, if you don't know what it is, you won't. Dell's support will be able to help if you provide them with proof of ownership. Otherwise, you're stuck. It's one of the theft deterrent features.

Dell latitude C800

if the operating system is XP or Windows Server then try the username as administrator and leave the password blank and press enter.

if it does then well & good.

if it doesnot then in the setup utility select 1st boot device as CDROM and insert a bootable disc and boot the system and install new operating system.
