I have recently acquired a Dell XPS M1330 laptop. I haven't come across any need to enter a password as yet to use the laptop but fear that if I may need to at some point in the future, have no knowledge of what that might be from the previous owner or any way of finding out. Is there a way I can reset the password without knowing what the previous one was. Also having attempted to go onto the Internet went to diagnose problems when it would not connect. I then went into the connection option when you right click on the Internet explorer icon and selecting the households wireless provider. I followed all the steps to connect this provider using the required password. I then attempted to open Internet explorer again and it will still not open saying it might be conection probs/the website/or typing error although when looking at the connection it says their is one and the signal is a full bar. Please advise how I can connect the laptop to the Internet. Regards Laura
Do a clean install on windows before anything, to get rid of this other persons garbage and settings. After this, update Windows. Then, get the password for a wireless network that you own or trust and type that in when attempting to connect and go from there.
