I forgot the password to my Dell Latitude 600. I'm tired of trying to
figure it
out and have decided to just reinstall the OS over again.
Any help on how to
reset it? Thanks

Re: Hard reset?

There is a password to the laptop itself and a password to Windows.  The
two are not the same.  If you forgot the password to the laptop itself,
you won't be able to install Windows, nor would doing so be of any use.

If it is the Windows passwords that you have forgotten then a visit to


will provide you with a bootable CD which allows you to delete the passwords
(don't try to reset them - that bit doesn't work with XP).

If however, it is the laptop's own password that you have forgotten then you
may be out of luck.
