How Do You Reset A Password On A Dell Inspiron Laptop Computer?

0

On a Dell Inspiron laptop (as well as other laptops using Windows), passwords and other important data are stored in the Security Account Manager (SAM), which is a file readable only to the administrator of the computer. An administrative account on a PC laptop allows the main user of the computer to change certain computer settings. A password is required to access this account. However, unauthorized access can occur if the password information is made available to outside sources or hacked. One way to combat unauthorized access to computer settings is by resetting the administrator password. Hit the “Start” button in the lower left-hand corner of the screen and click on “Control Panel.” A window entitled “Pick a Category” will pop up. Click on the “Performance and Maintenance” category. Click on “Administrative Tools,” located under the “Control Panel Icon” section of the “Performance and Maintenance” window. This will bring up a window with multiple icons and shortcuts.
