Question about Dell XPS 200 PC Desktop

1 Answer

My daugther bought a Dell xps 200 at a yard sale over a year ago and she has never been able to log onto it because it has an administrator password on it and it won't allow you to do anything without it. Is there any way around this?

Please check site below. You can disable the motherboard password via a jumper settings.

If the administrator password you are telling about is for windows, then you just have to reformat the hard disk and install the operating system you want.

If you fit a new hdd then place windows on it, that will be the cheapest way to do it. Assuming there is no bios password!

I forgot my login administrator password for my dell xps window 7


Anonymous,
If you forget the administrator password and don't have a password reset disk or another administrator account, you won't be able to reset the password. If there are no other user accounts on the computer, you won't be able to log on to Windows and will need to re-install Windows.
Thank You,

You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password and privileges. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program. Click on one of these links to download HIREN'S BOOTCD :- http://www.hirensbootcd.net/ http://67.20.82.163/

Depends when it asks for P/W is in the black n white screen or logon to windows.

Boot into safe mode and negotiate to passwords in control panel, remove password.(If in windows logon P/W)

If its at boot up in bios then its a complete dismantle of the laptop to remove the cmos battery for 1 hour.

Need master password for dell xps m1530. Or info on how to bypass power on password.


If you boot your computer up in "safe mode" in either windows xp or vista you should see a logon screen with an account called "Administrator" log on with this account and you have full authority to change any account password on the computer.

Dell XPS M1210 Administrator password and password log on problem


This is a known vista issue where it creates a backup of your profile for some reason there registry edits to try and fix it but a system restore is much easier. Follow the below steps to solve problem.

Turned computer on and immediately pressed F8 repeatedly until I got "Advanced Boot Options" select "Safe Mode" computer then opens safe mode login as admin if possible, with a "Help" window, in the help window there is an underlined "What is System Restore?" then select "Click to open System Restore" restore to a previous state before which the fault occurred.
Click OK and after config changes should be good to go.

There is a nice program written in Linux at: http://www.pcloginnow.com that you can download and burn onto a CD! Boot that CD in and you can reset your password for both Administrator and all other users! Hope that helps!

No administrator password


you might want to ask the person who sold it to you for the password. Or you could make a clean install of windows.
