Lost password to laptop how do I unlock computer with out a reset pass word disk?

There is no easy solution. If you mean the motherboard system lock, ask the manufacturer. For hdd lock, remember the password or purchase a new hdd. Windows password; software available on dodgy web sites.

To reset the password, shut down the system, restart in bios, press and hold F2 until it loads in the long rectangle box.
The Setup utility will open.
Arrow down to Locked Setup.
Press enter key and popup box will appear.
Type in the box the password you received from Dell

Press enter key, new box will open where you enter your new password.
Press enter, verify password, press enter.

Press enter and it will ask Exit Saving Changes.
Please select YES

For got password can't get in

One thing comes to mind, other than trying all your old passwords that you can remember. Almost every laptop and p.c. has a "factory password" or "universal password" that techs, repair shops, police etc. use to access a password protected locked computer. The codes are built-in and cannot be changed. They are not usually easy to find, the codes that are, unless you know where to look and how to ask. If your comp is still under warranty, take it to the shop where you got it and see if they'll do it. I say that because opening the case will void the warranty. If it's not under warranty, open it up and write down the brand, model, serial #, c.p.u #, motherboard #, H/D # and maybe even the O.S. #. After that you can go online and try to find the "universal password". But when in doubt, call around some comp repair shops, explain the problem, ask for a price quote. Some will tell you those codes don't exist, but really, they do. Or better, if you know a "GEEK", take it to him/her. And no it's not a 4 letter word anymore, I am one. Good Luck. Grimm - If you succeed in getting a universal password, hold onto it.

Locked computer ..can't remember password

Restart your PC and keep pressing f8 key you will get to advanced boot menu. In advanced boot meny select safe mode.
When you will boot into safe mode you will have administrator password by default with no password. Select that and login to the system under that account. Create new user account from safe mode and use that.

IF that will not work use 3rd partu utillities to reset password. Here are some of them.

And you will find links to plenty of freeware password reset utilities on the link below:
