Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop
Posted by Anonymous on
SOURCE: adminstrator password problem
If this is a white and grey screen, before windows starts, it's a system board password. To clear this you will need to contact dell, have your service tag and express code ready, and if you haven't already, you will need to register ownership with Dell. I posted a link at the bottom for phone numbers of Dell's support. Dell is great in the fact that they have a master code for each of their machines.
However, if this is a windows password, which I don't believe it is, you will need to start windows in safe mode by pressing F8 at start up. Then log in under administrator and clear passwords in each user account.
Here's the link, the phone numbers are about half way down the page. You'll just need to give them a call, it won't take very long, I've done it a several times with Dell machines I've purchased at auctions.
