You'll need to call Dell support -- be prepared to verify your system ownership and to pay for a support call, as the call isn't free once the warranty expires, as it no doubt has on a model this old.

Unfortunately, Dell can only provide information resetting a bios password. You can click the link below for information resetting your admin password in Windows 7.

Windows 7 Admin Password Reset

If still under warranty, click the "Get help now" icon on the right to start a live chat session.

neiesc,

Unfortunately, the admin password is not the bios password. If you need the bios password reset you can call Dell Support as ejn63 suggest. The number is 1-800-624-9896.

If still under warranty, click the "Get help now" icon on the right to start a live chat session.

Here are the usual methods to resolve this issue:

  • Reboot the machine with your Windows Repair CD, then use System Restore to set Windows back by a few days (works only if the problem occurred recently).
  • Log on under an alternative admin account, then reset the password to your usual account (works only if you set up an alternative admin account).
  • Log on as Administrator in Safe Mode, then reset the password to your usual account (works only if you enabled the Administrator account and know its password).
  • Insert your USB flash disk with the password keyfile (works only if you created such a keyfile).
  • Check your paper records (works only if you jotted down the password somewhere)


If none of these standard precautions work for you then the cure will be painful. Post again if this is the case.
