You may have to reset the CMOS battery because you won't be able to change the password if you can't enter it first.

Forgot my password to enter laptop


Give this a try, just in case: When you turn on the Netbook, it starts, usually, with a black screen booting the Bios and then it starts the Windows OS. During the black screen, it probably says to press - F2, F8 or some other key combinations to get into "setup" mode. See if there is a "disable password..." in the menu item of you setup mode...and disable it. Just try...let me know if this works...Thnx

I want to disable the system password on my dell computer


I assume that you have the password? Restart your computer. As soon as you see the dell screen, hit the f2 key. This will take you into setup. Look through the different menus and you will find the password options somewhere. You should be able to disable it there.

sounds like your floppy drive is failing, you could get it replaced or simply turn it off via the BIOS.
to turn it off simply hit the F2 key. On the first screen usually it will list your Hard Drives, CD ROMs', and the Floppy. scroll down to the floppy and hit enter ot the corresponding key form the bios's legend at the bottom or right hand side of the screen untill you see disable.
Next you can navigate to Save & exit or hit F10 to do the same. G/L.

Password


This is a BIOS password, to disable it,

Boot Your Computer
Enter the Password
Hit F2 (BEFORE YOUR COMPUTER BEGINS TO LOAD WINDOWS)
This will bring you into BIOS menu, find where it says "Set Supervisor Password" or "Set System Password"
Either disable the password, or when it prompts you to change it, simply hit enter without entering any characters and this will get rid of it.
