    My dad changed his login password several days ago and now can't remember it clearly. I tried to ask help from dell support, no luck till now.

    So what is the right path to get the laptop unlocked?

    Do you still have the OS disc that came with the laptop?

    i also have the same issue, then I used many tools like pcunlocker, uukeys, passcape even ophcrack,but didnt' work all.

    and more..

    i tried many password reset disk, but it seems it reset the password, but when I reboot and it still let me type password.

    i'm also looking for ways....

    Do you know roughly what the password is? Worth trying a few variations of the password first.
