If you can prove to them that you are the legal/rightful owner of that laptop, I'm sure they would help in some way.

He/she can't get to an Administrator account. The machine requires a hardware level password to start.

logonrecovery might help.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

Is the OP the owner of the laptop? See post #1. Why persist with password help when the OP has not verified this simple statement?

You know Ewen, I think you have a good statement. Just Noart might have already abandoned this post.

RMT2 you are dead right... this forum must be saturated with "one post" subscribers who never bother to return. The days of good manners on forums are gone!

It is interesting to note the OP posted here http://www.computing.net/answers/wi... and I asked him the same question.

Nice, I think we have one person that ignores those questions. Just trying to get other people that don't think logically to give him/her the way in. Sounds fishy, isn't it?

Also, how about checking for more of these same posts tomorrow? :)

I am not really familiar with Dell laptops but if you forgot your Windows password and wish to recover it try use Ophcrack.http://www.bennixville.com/2010/05/how-to-recover-lost-windows-password.html

But if your BIOS and OS is lock-out like what happen with my Acer Aspire you need to open your laptops hardware to remove the CMOS battery temporarily- this will rest the password.

My friend's technique also is to short the hardware gap-works like removing the CMOS and all things work fine.

Bennix... have you read the entire thread? Your advice may be useful to some but it is always good policy to ask about the laptop ownership. It's always a bit suss when someone asks for help and then never answers pertinent questions!

You should probably look at this too. Kinda odd how so many people are asking for laptop passwords:
