So, here’s the deal. When I was nine I received a Dell Inspiron 1545, and it worked wonderfully. Now I’m eighteen and I want to get into it again because I need a VM. So today I tried to get back into it and I don’t know the password at all. I can’t access anything through it and I’ve tried out every tutorial on the internet that covers it. I also just finished CS50 with Harvard to get my technology certification, and if I can’t figure it out, I feel like nobody can. I’m frustrated, hopeless, and ready to rip my head off.
 
Here’s a YouTube video that I made for further detail.
 
Thank you so much!
 
(p.s.
I came here because the a$$es at CNET locked my thread because I made my account THAT DAY and then added ONE VIDEO LINK, after stating that I had a real problem, of course.  I wish not to be treated this way and to rather have my problem fixed.  Thank you!)

Download Lazesoft Windows Recovery Suite Home on another computer and create a boot CD. Boot and disable the hidden Administrator Account. From there you can reset your current account.

The above is a direct download link of home so you do not have to download through cnet.

Sadly, I can't get it to work at all on the computer.

You burnt the CD of Lazesoft on another computer already and it does not boot? You may need to enter your BIOS settings and make sure your CD/DVD is the first boot device.

 

Dell will let you select the boot device by tapping F12 at boot.

 

Edit: If the CD does not boot use the USB flash drive option.

The USB worked!  Thank you so much!
