Hi,

Since you haven`t mention the operating system in the query, i believe the operating system as XP

the one method to retain your data and change the password is to repair your pc desktop, so kindly follow the below steps

XP Operating system REPAIR

Set your first boot device in the Bios to CD-Rom. Insert your Windows XP CD, save the bios settings and exit. Soon "Press any key to boot of CD" will appear on the screen, hit the space bar to continue.

Now setup will inspect your hardware and software, it then will load various files required for the repair. Just wait and be patient, this may take a few moments.

Soon a menu will appear (as pictured below), press enter to continue.

Now the "End User Agreement" Press "F8" if you agree, "ESC" if you don't.

You will now have to select the installation you wish to repair. Usually there is only one, but sometimes, there may be 2 or more (i.e. you have done a parallel install to resolve a problem), use the up/down arrow key to select the install, and then press "R" to continue.

Setup will now examine the disk be patient, it can take a few minutes.

Setup will go through a percentage - 1 to 100%

A screen will soon appear. Press "F3" to continue

Now setup will reboot system, wait 15 seconds or just press enter.

Now it is time to see if this has solved your problems.

If you are using Windows and have to re-install, re-install a New installation, do not write over the old one, do not partition or format your hard drive and you still could go into the old files and retrieve your documents, pictures, video, music, Internet Favorites, etc.

If you did not save anything or don't care about your information, you can take this opportunity to forrmat your harddrive and clean any chance of a virus or other malware which may be in the system.

There is another option too, if you want to hook your harddrive up to another computer you can pull the files in that way.

Next time, put your password somewhere you will remember, like under your mattress.

Hope this helped.

    Forgot password for dell inspirion 1440laptop


    You'll need to reset your Windows/Hotmail/etc. password. Microsoft has integrated the whole shebang, now. So once you have access (borrow a family member's or friend's) to another computer, reset your Microsoft password. Then, with the laptop hooked up to the internet, log in with the new password. That should work.
