Problem: Forgot Windows XP Password on Dell Laptop
I have a Dell laptop that has no CD-ROM drive. I wanted to get rid of it, but wanted to delete all my old files first. The problem is I have not used it for over 4 years - so I have no idea what the password is. I tried the 'Administrator' with no password, but still could not get in. Is there any way to get in still or how can I recover the forgotten Windows password on XP?
