Find a shop

You need to locate a shop that has a licensed copy of ERD. Quite frankly, I would spend the $80 or so and purchase a new hardrive and reload the OS.

TR members do not assist password recovery. Do not respond to this thread

by OH Smeg In reply to dell inspiron 1526 admini ...

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.. To those viewing this post: Please DO NOT respond any further to this thread.

Your answer here is to ring Dell and buy a Recovery Set which I'm assuming you don't currently have and reload from the Recovery Set. This will return the system to As New Condition and give you a fresh new install to work with.

OH BTW you should remove your E-Mail Address from your Post as it will be harvested by the multitude of Bots on the Net and your In Box will get flooded with Spam.
