  • Forgot Admin Password

    Technically... I haven't forgotten it. I changed my password about a week ago, and have been using my laptop so much that I haven't logged out.
    I know the password that I thought I put it, but I guess it's wrong. I have tried a variety of different passwords but none of them have worked. There is only one account on my computer as I am the only one who uses it. Dell Chat directed me to this site , but none of the instructions have helped me as I have no clue what they mean. I have read all the articles on this site that could help me, but I'm really not that well technically smart per say.

    Could anyone enlighten me?

    Can I recommend you ask your local expert or computer shop to sort it for you.
    Since you still have access to your PC, try to back up all important files first, just in case a reinstall is needed.
