Administrator password

  • I'm trying to re-format the C:\ drive and re-load XP on an Inspiron 530. Does anyone know the default administrator password?

    I have never been asked to enter one so it would be as factory-loaded

  • there isn't one


    my Dells:
    Optiplex 3020 - Windows 7 Pro 64-bit / Linux Mint
    Optiplex 3020 - Windows 7 Pro 64-bit

    Precision M6300 - Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

    Latitude D620 - XP Pro SP3

    If you have not set a password yourself, then when it's requested, just push 'Enter'.
