Laptop asking me for a password but was never password protected
My Dell Latitude C640 has locked me out. I cannot get access to my files or anything on the computer. It is asking me for a password and username but the laptop was never password protected since I am the only one who uses it. Rather than the usual screen that comes on to log in, it is a Windows XP screen that comes up w/o a picture and asks me to log in. Any suggestions how to reset it or get the usual screen to come on and log in?
Re: Laptop asking me for a password but was never...
Just use oph crack, use it to find a password/username then go to control panel, classic view in the top left corner, user accounts, "change the way you log on and off" then select the "welcome screen" option. if this happens still, you might be pressing a "lock" buttom to turn your pc off.

Usually, We may create a user password to protect our Dell
laptop. Unfortunately, we often forget the password then can't access
the computer. This article will tell you how to crack Dell laptop
1.First flip your laptop over and remove the battery, as well as any cables connected to the laptop. 2.Remove the screw latched into the memory panel on the bottom of the computer found near the rear.
3.Lift the panel off and expose the memory modules. 4.Seek for a small push-button and press it, holding it for about two seconds. Reassemble your laptop and start it up.
It ian't a big deal, one phone call to Dell Technical support 800-624-9896 Verify that you are an authorized user of the system, and they will generate a master password for the system. (If out of warranty, there may be a support fee)
If it is a passwd set in the bios...good luck. You may have to download a disc from techspot.com
If it is a windows passwd after the dell splach screen tap F8 this brings up the Advanced Startup Menu. Select safe mode and log in as the administrator. From there you can remove or change the password for all accounts. If there was never an account setup on that laptop and the Administrator account is being used then you will need a disk fron techspot.com to retrieve that password.
