I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

If your trying to change a bios setting or Reformat any of the newer Dell Laptop's you may run into this issue! There is an Administrator password you will be prompted for. I believe this is created at the factory and unplugging the bios battery no longer does the trick! I tried many different passwords combos and found that:

That makes no sense at all. If it were true then Dell would have to provide the password as part of the information it provides to customers when they buy the laptop. Anything else would subject them to being sued.

My buddy gave me an old dell laptop that his wife uses from time to time. He has some short term memory issues and has already forgotten the password that he set on the admin account. This is the delima: I cannot re install windows because 1: there is not enough open space on the hrd drive. 2: the only copy I have laying around is from msndaa and seems to only work as a boot cd (this wont work because it only gives me the option to fresh install windows and wipe all the files). The files on the computer are supposedly pictures that cannot be lost PERIOD. I have tried some password cracking tools but to no avail. Ive tried ophcrack as well asa offline nt password recovery. I a not too familiar with ophcrack but after toying around with it I concluded that it was a failure. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

By the way, I don't have admin privileges on the guest account and I'm running Windows 7 x32 if someone wonders.

Thx in advance

Any ideas on how to crack the password or any pins to short to reset it?

The firm in which I work has a Lenovo PC with Windows 10 installed. There are two user profiles on the computer, the admin and another normal account without administration rights. We have only the password of the account without administrator rights.

The network administrator had left the company surprisingly in without giving the administrator password of the PC and we cannot contact him anymore.

Now we want to install another programme and we cannot do this without an administrator account.

I disabled secure boot and have tried to boot the PC with an Linux USB Stick, but it do not boot from the stick.

Any suggestion how I either can reset the password of the administrator account or create an new account with administrator rights.

A:Windows 10 admin password reset or new account with admin rights

Although there may be techniques to recover a lost password it is forum policy that we do not discuss these here - your best bet would be to visit a local security specialist and get them to recover/reset it for you - and a change to the policy for the replacement admin may be a good idea, I always wrote a list of all passwords and stored it with the Managing Director and also in a fireproof safe

I havea dell x200 and it is locked with an admin password. I have down loaded the bios but I have no idea of the adress in which the password is kept. Does anyone know it. Aso I have been informed that the cmos chip is a u525.And I can not find it. Where would this chip be located?
Last and not least , can this cmos chip be inline programable just like an ibm.(I don't remove the cmos in a ibm to reprogram it to remove crc errors) Any help would be great

Thank you

I turned my computer on this morning (XPS M1330), it started updating automatically with updates and then would not accept my password. It gives the error message, " the user profile service failed the login." I do not have any software so I can reset the password, as I bought the computer from my brother about 2 years ago. What can I do? It doesn't seem right that the computer did these updates and is now rejecting my password with no solutions on how to change it beyond having the software.any help would be appreciated - thank you!

A:Dell laptop rejecting my password

If the user profile fails to load, the SAM won't load the password.  When this happens, there's a very good chance a failing hard drive is at fault.
Power the system up, press F12 a couple of times and boot to the Dell diagnostics.  Run the tests, and then boot to the full 32-bit diagnostics and run an extended hard drive test - you will likely find the drive has developed bad sectors where the user profile is stored, in which case you'll need a new, 2.5" 7 or 9.5 mm SATA notebook hard drive.

Last week Password Dell Before Accidentally Boot Set Laptop I tried to turn on my laptop to check my Email and it requested a password to open desktop normal but instead of my normal password it wanted my Microsoft Account login information which I did not remember So I tried to change this back to normal but it is Microsoft so NOTHING worked and I ended up setting a password before it even starts to load Windows Apparently this is a Dell password that I did not want and I would like to disable it please My reason to disable this ignorance is because it routinely forgets my password and tells me it is NOT VALID and then try again This is an issue because it only lets you try times and then reboots Eventually it will work with the initial password you entered but not until making it take an hour to turn on your computer because the login is SO poorly coded I wish I could attach a screenshot but all of this is before Windows even starts to boot Accidentally Set Dell Laptop Password Before Boot up P S I want to disable this password the SAME way I set it WITHOUT Accidentally Set Dell Laptop Password Before Boot having to take the laptop apart please Thanks in advance

A:BIOS password set by accident on Dell laptop

For the record, let's get this straight. You messed up your mother's computer, you scared she'll find out. But in no way can the come close to "Help help life and death emergency". So let's leave the drama out! You should also never post personally identifying information such as the ID and tag numbers of her machine. You have now also put her system at risk.

Quite frankly, unless you were specifically given permission to get into the BIOS as a means of repairing the operating system, you should not have entered it at all.

You can look on the follow site for help witht the BIOS problem:

I am a novice in the IT world, was getting engaged and changed my password to get into my laptop b/c I had pics of the ring. Well the password I picked is pretty good b/c I locked myself out of my laptop. I have tried everything with no luck.

I purchased Windows Password Unlocker for $50 and it is not working at all ...

So my questions are:

- Is Windows Password Unlocker crap or am I just doing something wrong?
- Are there any other options so I can be able to log into my laptop and not have to wipe it clean?

Thank you in advance for your help!

I Purchased this Laptop few years back. Now it stopped working suddenly. Am in India right now but when i consulted the Dell Exclusive store here they say its not repairable. Kindly suggest. I never fell down nor got damaged by any external source. I wanted to get it repaired or may be send it back to recycling if possible.

A:Service Tag <ADMIN NOTE: Service tag removed per privacy policy> || DELL Inspiron 14z 5423 || Laptop Dead

We cannot assist without knowing  why the shop said it's not repairable.
How old is "a few years"?  Any system more than three years old likely isn't worth a major repair such as a replacement system board -- even if a board is available.

This is a low-end system -- if it requires a mainboard change, it's likely not worth the repair, as the shop has told you.

Hi, I work at a pawn shop, and we have a problem we have never encountered before.  This laptop, which is cleared and is now for sale in the shop, now asks for an administrator password or power on password.  It did not do this when it was brought in, nor when it was pulled from the back.  We were going to power it on for a customer, and it just started asking us for this password. I have seen in another post that you enter through it 3 times to get a code, so here is the code:61987774 Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I bought a laptop about a year ago. Shortly after buying it, we lost the password before making a backup disk. I couldn't change the password, we run Windows 7, without the old password. Luckily, or so we think, we have one of those laptops that has a fingerprint scanner so I have been able to log on using my fingerprint as a password. However, I can't believe that I am locked out of changing the passwords on this computer.

I have learned my lesson! Always back it up first! But for now, I need some help. I am also a little worried that I may have been hacked into. A friend said that if your password all of a sudden doesn't work, that is a sign of a hacker. That is what it felt like happened to me. I swear I thought I had the password right, then all of a sudden it stops working.

Thanks so much-Bill

A:Admin Password

I would suggest looking thru the old admin records and disks and documents most of the Admins keep records and also write down the passwords and keeps them in a special place like tapped under a drawer or some other place like that. T here are also procedures that will show passwords but not knowing if you are who you are i am kind of hesitant to give out this information, however you can Google this type of info. Perhaps you could get this thread moved to the Security Forim here at TSG and perhaps a moderator there might help you. To do this just click on the little triangle at the top right of the window and ask.

Hello, I see from previous posts that the Admin password is a taboo subject, hopefully I'm under the radar. I bought a XPHome machine 4 years ago, a friend set it up for me, I did not know anything about computers. I have searched my paperwork, the friend is no longer around to ask, and feel he would have told me to save and remember a password, but don't think there is one. Does the computer need to have a password assigned or can it be left blank? I have a feeling that no password was set, but do not know how to confirm the fact. It wouldn't bother me if no password was set, just need to know yes or no. Everything is running fine, but this is just sticking in the back of my brain, if I ever have do something with the Admin, thanks for any help.
