    Call Microsoft and ask them if you'll be able to reset the password.

    Otherwise, create a new login account.

    shut down pc when restarts repeatedly tap F8 to go into safe mode take safe mode /(or with networking) take administrator account... control panel... User account...remove password. Log off user ..should be able to get in. you can reset the password after u reboot pc. If both accounts have passwords then you have a problem.

    go to a local pc & tell them u would like a wireless card put in the pc if u don't have a wirless router no use in getting the card..

    i have windows xp too. it is designed to have a log in screen but not a password unless u put one on. if you did, you should call dell customer service and ask them if there is a way to reset it. also, maybe you put a hint on the side. you should check if u did to see if you can remember
