dell 5150

By richgold_1 ·
Pleasant day. I have a dell 5150 laptop that i had a administrator password on. I had sent it to upgrade on couple software. When i went to collect it they showed me that it worked fine. However, few days later i tried to turn on the computer and my administrator password does not work. I went in search for the technician but can't find him. Can anyone help me get into my laptop please? I have a lot of important information stored.

The members of TechRepublic - A Resource for IT Professionals, will not assist anyone in the recovery of lost passwords. You may have a legitimate reason to recover a password. However, we cannot verify your motives and will therefore not assist anyone in what may be an attempt at gaining unauthorized access to a computer system. Due to the open nature of this forum, any assistance given to help circumvent security measures, even for legitimate purposes, would be available for unscrupulous individuals to use for illegitimate purposes. This is a risk that we the members of TechRepublic will not take. Please do not ask questions of this nature on TechRepublic.

If you have a legitimate need to circumvent a password scheme, please contact the vendor for the software / hardware and request their assistance. E.g. Windows XP password recovery issues should be taken up with Microsoft's technical support, Phoenix BIOS password recovery issues should be taken up with Phoenix Technologies, etc..

Password cure

by mjd420nova In reply to dell 5150

THis has become a very repetitive problem lately and it is usually from having developed a bad high capacitance device on the main board that holds the CMOS BIOS intact instead of the batteries of earlier generation machines. The device that;s failed can only be serviced by Dell. They will have you send it to them and they'll either service for you or send the laptop police to your door when the paperwork doesn't jibe. They will fix it and restore it to a condition just before the first failure. It Takes Dell to service the unit no one else would be able to bypass the password that got jumbled by the CMOS during the failure cycle.
