Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

Hi, my daughter has a dell inspiron 1501 used from my sister. and well it was working fine . then we did not have it on for while and now when it comes on asking for the password it doesnt work. we use all the pass words that we know of. and none work. also we can not reset pw because it asks for a reset disc. can we reset this password somehow in safe mode? please help. thank you


Answers :

When your computer boots and the login screen appears press control(ctrl) + alt + delete twice. This will bring up a window asking you for your username and password.
Type "administrator" without the quotes as the username and leave the password field blank. Press OK.
When you are logged in as an administrator change the password for your old username using control panel>user accounts.

If this doesn't work then you need to reset the administrator password. Visit this link -> >LINK<
