Reset password in Dell® XPS M1330
Tips to Reset Password in Dell XPS M1330
One of the most common reasons to reset a password is that you forgot your Windows® password or your password expired. You need to reset your Windows® password before you can log on to your Dell XPS M1330 and start working again. This article contains two methods that you can try to reset your password so that you can log on to your Dell XPS M1330 once more. The following steps work if and only if you either: created a password reset disk in the past for your Dell XPS M1330, or if you can still log on as an administrator.
- Password Rest By Admin
- System Restore
- Parallel Operating System
Password Rest By Admin
The simplest and most direct method of gaining access to your Dell XPS M1330 is by logging in with the administrative account and perform a password reset in the concerned account. How ever, this will not work if there is no additional admin account on your Dell XPS M1330 or your account itself was the admin account.
Another approach that may be considered is to try and restore the system back to an earlier date by hard system restore. It is important that you do remember the password during the backed up period though. If not, the approach would be a failure. You can do this by using by trying to restore a backed up System State (in Windows® 2000/XP/2003) or an ERD (in NT 4.0). You may lose recently added user accounts and groups since the last backup was made.
You may also consider using 3rd party password recovery toolkits that will enable you to reset the lost password and logon with a blank password. However, beware of the possibility of contacting a computer virus or any other malicious program under the guise of a password recovery toolkit.
Another popular method is to install an operating system parallel to your current operating system. This is done on a different partition of the hard disk. We would recommend using Ubuntu and then use a simple and convenient hack to reset the Windows® password to blank. You should remove the parallel operating system once the password is reset. Keeping the other OS would cause a performance hot by reducing the amount of hard disk space available. Please be careful while removing the other operating system, as it is very easy to go wrong and mess up the boot loaders and other configuration files. This is an extremely complicated task and should be outsourced to a professional technical support team.
