Dell inspiron 5150 laptop, reset admin. password.


Restart your laptop and keep tapping F8 key the moment you see something on the screen. You will get a black screen with some options written in white. Select the option Safe mode and then you can create a new user with admin rights. Or else at the windows login screen press and hold ctrl and alt key and tap delete key twice and then it will take you to a login screen. Dont put any password there just hit enter. And you will be able to login with admin rights.

Thanks

Password reset


Reformatting the hard drive is the best way to solve this problem. Reformatting will also get rid of all the junk files and make the system faster.

Blank screen on desktop (dell inspiron 530s); requesting a password.


Someone has turned on the BIOS password on you and therefore the PC will not let you boot up unless you enter the correct password. The problem is you cannot turn off the password option unless you know the password. I would start by asking other people who had access to you computer what they set the password to. If nobody comes clean, then you will have to call Dell Tech Support to get them to reset the password for you. They will give you a master BIOS password to override the one set and turn off the option.

I cannot log on to computer, dont know password


try starting in safe mode(press power button like turning on normally then tapping F8 when the screen shows dell on it). choose safe mode. put administrator in as thu username and leave password blank. hopefully it works. if it does get you into the system i think you can go to control panel and then user accounts. you should be able to see the other user names there and you can delete passwords too. then you can restart and log on normally hopefully

System won't log on


try safe mode. If it works, use system restore to go back to a previous working configuration. If safe mode does not work, try the last known-good configuration. Restart the computer, then as soon as the Dell logo shows up on the screen, press the F8 key repeatedly until you enter the Advanced Options Menu. Use the arrow keys to select Last Known-Good Configuration, then press Enter.
