When you forget Dell laptop password, have you ever been suggested that reinstalling the operating system is the only way that you can do to regain access to the computer? Is there any way to recover or reset the password?
In my opinion, the best way to keep your laptop from dying and keep all data stored on it intact, is to make a password reset disk by yourself to reset the password. How? Just follow the 3-step guide below.
First of all, choose a program that can help to reset the Dell password. Windows Password Buster is recommended. It will let you access your laptop and reset the forgotten password without changing anything else. This program also works well in Windows 7, XP and Vista. It takes you only 1 click to burn a password reset disk with CD or USB drive.
Insert the password reset disk into the Dell laptop. Start it and press F12 when the Dell logo appears to initiate a one-time boot menu. The devices listed on the boot menu depend on the bootable devices in the laptop. Select the fitting option and then press Enter to boot from the password reset disk.
After entering the laptop, you can see that the Windows Password Buster program has been launched automatically. Here you need to click the "Change password" button to reset the forgotten password or click the "Create a new account" button to create a new administrator account.
The last step is to reboot your Dell laptop and take out of the CD or USB drive. Then you can log on with the new password. If you create a new password, please make sure that the password is easy to remember so that you will not forget it again.
