I have DELL laptop, I had a problem with my hard drive, I decided to replace it with a new one. The problem I faced is I forget the system password. How do I reset that password.

Thnk you for you technical assistance.

try clearing the cmos, by taking out the battery and touching the clip with a screw driver. that will short the cmos, and reset it if im right, and stick the battery back in and turn the pc on

You cant reset CMOS password with most modern laptops without use of a engineer.
RTM I think :(

What model?
Tried dell's support site?

Sarcasm doesnt require a smilie. Plus since I am such a bastard I dont wanna.
On a side note... the admin and mods can all kiss my ass.

Naaa I think that password, with right BIOS setting, would mean it was required right at machine boot - pre-windows - to enter right after POST (or even before, me not sure)... so that does not make him shadey.

But I would like to hear back if he follows up MadDoctors link and does the reset thing (although maybe nervous to open laptop) Post back would be good anyway....

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
