First of all i need to know the specific model of the inspiron laptop in question.
Secondly,is the lock or its better to say password on the motherboard or on the user account.
If its the user account, then you can type the word "Administrator" in the user field if it opens up for u then u can access that account through C:\Documents and Settings/ user account and access the data. After u can even delete that account.
Or I reccommend to use Hillens Boot Cd and use the password tools.

My hp laptop is locked by ubuntu log in black screen,i've had it with ubuntu how do i remove it for good. [ i've had a horrible experience with ubuntu and i havent even seen it on screen yet]

You can either re-install as you haven't used it, or you can reset your password, or install any other operating system of your choice.

Arguably it would be hard to hate something that you haven't been able to log into or use at all, however I digress.

I have dell inspiron 6000 laptop. The laptop keyboard got locked. I can't use the keyboard and if press any works for the function key. On the laptop, the light with lock symbol (9) is on.

When you turn on the laptop, just before Windows starts to load tap the F8 key a couple of times. If you get a menu, choose Last Known Good.

If that does not do it, and the mouse still works fine, go to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools and run System Restore.

Choose a date from before the keyboard problem and let it reboot. Should solve the problem.

I have a inspiron 1521 and i have 1 bar from my nabors router and i cant log on but all my other laptops conect

You can use the wireless configuration tool on the other laptops to determine all necessary settings except one: the WEP or WPA key. Match your new laptop's settings to one that works. If you need the key, you'll have to ask your neighbor. If you don't need a key, you should not take advantage of your neighbor by using his internet without permission.
