Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook

1 Answer

Administrator password problem

Evidently my teen grandson was messing with my laptop security and changed something. Before I can get to my windows (where I usually put in my password), I now get a grey and white screen with a message telling me I can't log on without supplying an administrative password. My grandson told me the password he used so I'm able to get on, but I don't want this extra step in getting to my windows! How do I get rid of this annoyance? And by getting rid of it, will it remove any of my stuff I have on here? Thanks for any help.
My laptop is actually a Dell Inspiron 1525 special edition, but that choice wasn't listed here.

  1. Turn on your laptop and allow it get to the stage where is will ask for user/log password
  2. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del your keyboard.
  3. A user name and password prompt will pop up.
  4. On the user name type in "administrator
  5. On the password, type in "administrator"
  6. and you windows will open, go to control panel from there to change the password.

Well, the BIOS also has a password, evidently.
You will need to remove the battery, remove the BIOS battery and clear the CMOS values in order to use the computer.

Log into your computer as administrator to do this. Most likely the password is Administrator, Admin or something like that and the password will be either blank or the same as the user name 'Administrator' or 'Admin'. Once logged in as administrator you can change the computer passwords and users accounts.
