hi. thanks for the help ahead of time.
i was cleaning a closet last week and run across an old laptop i forgot i had. powered it up and it run. but...
no one in the household remembers the password.
i would like to re-image the machine to OEM factory settings but every method dell has requires the admin password. i don't care about any data that might be on the machine.
will your software help me out with this issue "re-image to OEM factory setting"?
thanks
Chris

No it wont help. Try Googling "pc admin password recovery" minus the "" of course.
Then you'll need a system disk or a working recovery disk that would have come with the machine.

Good luck. Chances are, if you can conquer the Admin Password obstacle, that there is a hidden factory reset partition that should be accessible though the Settings/Control Panel, or where ever.
