How To Unlock A Dell Inspiron Laptop ?

How can i unlock a dell inspiron laptop? I tried f8 and safe mode but i brought me back to putting a password?


Which system do you use?

On windows xp, try this:

Boot computer and press ctrl+alt+delete twice when you see windows welcome screen / login screen. It'll show classic login box. Now type "administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press enter and you should be able to login windows. Now you can reset your account password from "control panel -> user accounts". If that doesn't or you use windows 7 or vista, try this:

1. Enter a computer that can link to internet. Download windows password recovery tool 3. 0 and install the software on that computer. 2. Run the software and create windows password reset disk by follow the instructions. 3. Eject the created cd/dvd and insert it into the locked computer. 4. Reboot the locked computer (it's necessary for you to change your locked computer's bios setting to make it boot from cd drive) and then follow the instructions to reset your password. 5. Now login windows and set a new password.

Printer For Dell Inspiron 1501 Laptop

Will any printer work with my dell inspiron 1501 laptop? I'm looking for a decent but cheap printer for my laptop. I've been looking around online and i'm getting the impression that just about any printer will work. Anyone have an idea of what kind definitely will or won't work?

Btw photo printing would be nice with the printer, but it won't break my heart if i choose a cheaper printer without photo capabilities.

Dell Inspiron Laptop For Playing Sims 2

I want to get this laptop: http://bit. Ly/cyvems in a couple weeks. It says it has 3gb of ram and can be expanded to 8gb, and 320gb for the hard drive. I'm confused because my old desktop says that it has 80gb? Is that the ram or the hard drive?

I want to be able to play the sims 2 with all the expansion packs as well. Would this be a good laptop to get ?

Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop Problem

I have a dell inspiron 1525 laptop. It usually runs very well and i have had no problems with it. Recently, i watched a tv show on sidereel and got a virus. My laptop no longer recognizes my cd/dvd player and i have hundreds of virus messages popping up. It says "application cannot be executed" and that some files are infected. I think my only hope for salvaging this laptop is to reset it to factory settings unless one of you sages has a better solution.

Dell Inspiron 1564 Laptop Webcam Is Not Working

My relatively new dell inspiron 1564 laptop's webcam won't allow me to take picture or videos. Instead when i try to take a picture the words "please plug in a supported device" flash where the picture or video should be showing and a dinging sound repeats itself over and over and the message flashes. The webcam is built into the laptop so i don't know what supported device it's telling me to plug in. The webcam has worked up until this past week.

Dell Inspiron Laptop Keyboard Letters Don't Work

Dell inspiron laptop keyboard letters don't work after cleaning, how can i fix this? I removed the keyboard to clean the keys. The space bar and a couple letter keys came apart but i figured out how to put them together again and hooked onto the keyboard again. These keys though, don't work at all, and they also sound different from, their quieter. I'm not sure if this would make any difference but i cleaned the keyboard with clorox wipes. Also before replacing a couple keys, i needed to stick the end of a screwdriver underneath the keyboard membrane in order to position the round rubber thing. I'm just unsure if it was something that i did and should not have or if it's simply needing to re- replace the keys.

Dell Dimension E521 Or Dell Inspiron 531

I have both of these systems and want to choose one to keep and one to sell. The parts i will be putting in either to upgrade either are the following:

Amd x2 5600+
Evga 7600gt pci-e 256mb ddr3
2gb pc2-6400
2x 250gb wd sata hd's

Both systems have a 300wt psu, but the 531 allows for a hsf aftermarket to be added, while the e521 has this hsf built into the case type thing. If you were going to choose one system to keep and one tell sell, what would you do?

Dell Inspiron 15 Or 15 R ?

I really like dell inspiron 15 laptop, because it has the best user reviews (4. 5 star). However, the dell salesman told me that it's discontinued and he asked me to get inspiron 15r instead. I know it's a sales pitch because 15r is more expensive. However, it's rating is only 4 star (as compared to the 4. 5 star rating of 15). I called dell to confirm that inspiron 15 is not discontinued. However, this salesman said that 15r's processor is newer than 15's (if i can trust this one)!

If you have knowledge about the processor's of either laptop model, would you share you opinion? In summary, inspiron 15 has the best user reviews but maybe an older processor, while inspiron 15r has lower user rating but maybe newer processor.

Vcard For Inspiron 9400 Laptop

I just got a inspiron 9400 with a 1. 83ghz dual processor. I think i am limited to a 256mb card. I will be using it more as a work station than a gaming station. The main application i will be running is a program called ecabinets. I don't have a budget but price is always a concern. Thanks for your recommendations.

Dell Inspiron 7000 Problem

I have an old dell laptop (inspiron 7000) that doesn't turn on anymore. Not that i really care since i got a new one anyways, but still, it was a nice machine. A electric guy came over and said it was because of my battery. For a while my battery was completely dead and i just left it in there. So this guy told me that my dead battery somehow short-circuited my power supply, therefore making my laptop "unbootable". So i have two questions:

1) is there anyway to fix my old laptop?

2) my current laptop has a dead battery in it and is it okay to leave it in it all the time?

Warcraft Lags On Dell Inspiron

Warcraft lags on my brand new dell inspiron. Has nothing to do with my internet because it does it offline too? Like i said. I just got a brand new dell inspiron and installed warcraft onto it. Whenever i play the game i hit huge spikes and the game freezes for a few seconds then returns to normal. This has nothing to do with my internet because i have the same problem offline. I figure there is something that needs to be fixed on my computer.
