Start the machine in safe mode and log on as administrator, from here you can clear any user passwords.

Why wot the pass word work on this


Hi,

This is only possible if you are using Windows XP. If your operating system is windows Xp, follow the steps below:

  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.
That is all. In other words, the user name and password is administrator.

But in the case of windows Vista, you will have to re-run windows operating system, because vista security is very tight and it is difficult to break into its password.

Take care.

Forgotten password for Eee Pc 904hd op Vista


I suppose that you don't have administrator password.
If you have Xp installed, press twice CTRL+ALT+DEL and type at username Administrator and hit enter.
From there, in the Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management at the users section you can reset your password.

Hi, my daughter has a dell inspiron 1501 used from my sister. and well it was working fine . then we did not have it on for while and now when it comes on asking for the password it doesnt work. we use all...


When your computer boots and the login screen appears press control(ctrl) + alt + delete twice. This will bring up a window asking you for your username and password.
Type "administrator" without the quotes as the username and leave the password field blank. Press OK.
When you are logged in as an administrator change the password for your old username using control panel>user accounts.

If this doesn't work then you need to reset the administrator password. Visit this link -> >LINK<
