Are you saying she forgot the password to get in windows ?

If so, boot to safe mode, on my pc's it's the f8 key.

Goto safe mode and login as Administrator and then follow this path:- Start>Control Panel>User Accounts...
Click on your username and change Password:- Give a new password. It will not ask you for the old one

If the machine is looking for the Dell BIOS password, then you can try entering a backdoor password of either Dell or lleD (case sensitive) which sometimes works. If not, you will need to enter the BIOS and reset the password to none.

What if computer will not take password to your account


If you forgot your BIOS password. see this... http://www.wikihow.com/Break-a-BIOS-Password
If you forgot your windows Account Login password, the following page is a good description of your choices... http://pcsupport.about.com/od/tipstricks/tp/find-lost-windows-passwords.htm
Also, check out... http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/
If the above does not work, and you have important files that you don't want to lose, you could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a "USB Hard Drive Adapter" (available fairly cheap online) to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive. At least you may not lose you files.
Good luck

I carnt unlock the code


if your using windows xp you can do the following:

#1 boot into safe mode (press F8 before windows starts),

#2 log onto the account named "administaor" NOT your normal account

#3 go into control panal and remove password from user account settings.

I cant remember how many times iv forgot my password and had to do this. that or reinstall windows but i dont think anyone wants that joy.

If you lost the admin password then you need to look down the hacking route or send your computer in to where you bought it im afraid

If she gave you the set of CD-ROM disks to reinstall Windows, then use those disks.
Set a new password, during the installation.
