It sounds like the logon software is broken. You might have to reinstall.

Dell inspiron mini wont accept password...or reset password. Everything I have read says drive for disk. Also only allows to go to set up and f12...tried to reset default...

Turning on your Dell and turning off again at the Dell logo three to four times will put the computer in automatic repair. It should also give you other options such as restore, etc.

My mouse, cursor freezes before I can even enter my windows password to log on.

Try installing an external mouse and see if that works.

If it does, you might want to reinstall the ALPS Touchpad driver for your laptop.

Hope that helps.

When I turn on my Dell Inspiron 1420 and the password screen comes up, I put in my password and it says it is wrong. I haven't changed it and now it is wanting me to reset password. Is there anyway to do...

The problem with these kinds of questions is that passwords are there for a reason, and we can't know the validity of that it's your computer OR your password. There are easy work arounds, but you will have to google them as they could be unethical, so I can not in good faith tell you how to bypass someone's password.

You'll need to know your OS and you'll probably need access to a 2nd computer to burn a CD, or at least you'll need a USB stick.

For anyone who runs into this problem, and you've MADE CERTAIN you're entering your user name, if asked, AND you've tried logging in in safe mode (usually hitting the "f8" button while booting on windows OS's gets you a safe-mode menu) with no luck or results, make sure when you DO figure out the solution, that you WRITE DOWN your password somewhere.
Passwords don't change, unless YOU change them.
Or it's not your computer.

Hi assuming it's Windows Vista you have to download Hiren's Boot DVD and boot from it. Under Password & Recovery you will find several programs to remove the password for the Administrator or any other user. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer. Thank you :D

How do i change the configuration from domain to work group

even if you mistakenly joined a domain you can still log in through your existing id and password.
Once your press CTRL+ALT+DEL, you will see a login window with three fields namely: user id, password and Domain.
In the log in screen use the drop-down menu in front of Domain (which shows your new domain- most likey MSHome) and choose 'this computer'. After this, enter your old/existing user id and password and hit enter.
Please proceed to your system settings and change your domain back to Workgroup. Restart PC.
