Default Need Help with computer ASAP!

I received a Dell Computer as part of a program I signed up for...
Long story short...I did not complete the program but still have the computer. When I participated in the program, I only had access to their website (when everything was completed they were supposed to contact me with a way that I can now go on any site on the world wide web...I guess they would have sent a password or something). Anyway...is there any way to over ride their password or is there a way to reboot the computer from scratch?? Please help!!

Well being a Dell to start with it can have an asset tag in it somewhere. Most of the time it's hard coded in the system where mear mortals can't get to it let alone find it. But if the company that supplies the computer finds you have not paid for or completed the course, then at thier discression they can prove it's thier property and get it back. Along with causing you just untold amounts of grief.

Try to use this to find the password, if they tried to hide it in the system. http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/
