Hello,

I have an old Dell laptop, that has no internet connection or CD-ROM drive. I wanted to get rid of it, but wanted to delete all my old files first. Problem is I have not used in in 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 anyway to get in still - or should I just bust the thing into pieces?
Thanks

Greetings,

We are terribly sorry but Kioskea cannot help you to recover a password, because you can't prove to anybody on this forum that you are the real owner.

The reasons are explained in this link:
