If the password that is locking you out is a bios boot up password then download a small exe called "killcmos" or you can reset the password by removing the battery, and unplugging the unit, and opening the case to remove the cmos battery.

If it is the Win2k Logon that is keeping you off, then email me at the link below, and I will send you a small bootdisk image that will do the job nicely.

Go to this site:

And download the NT offline password cracker. It is a wonder! It will allow you to reset the local Admin password on the laptop.

If you have all of registration info, Dell will give you a workaround password to get into it. You must have the registration info when you talk to them. Our secretary is still looking for our info so I can't do anything until she finds it. I hadthe same problem and tried the everything that thinmfischer@ureach.com suggested. Nothing worked. Someone told me that there is a jumper that you must remove. The Dell documentation lists that as a solution for the desktops and even shows you where it is.
