Hi, I'm new to this website and I am hoping someone can help me with my dell inspiron notebook. It's been sitting in my closet for the past 2 years because it suddenly became password protected. I didn't add a password (although my daughter is not sure if she did accidentally). We've tried ever password we could think of and none worked. I called Dell and they pretty much said they can't help me. Can anyone help me get past this problem? I do not care about the contents on the computer any more. I just want to be able to use it. (or give it to my kid.) thanks for any help you can offer.
