I’ve forgotten the login password to my Dell XPS M1530 (Windows 8.1). And all my documents are on it. How can I bypass it or is there any way to reset login password to Dell XPS laptop?

No matter what brand of your computer is, no matter what operating system your notebook was installed, once you lost the login password to it, you can’t access it and enjoy its excellent performance. It is the same with Dell XPS notebook and gaming desktop.

To regain the access to your Dell XPS computer, you need to remove the login obstacle. Here we introduce 2 plans for Dell XPS laptop/desktop password reset.

Plan A. Reset Admin and Standard User Password on Dell XPS with Password Reset Disk

If you have created a password reset disk when you set the login account and password, you can take it out now. Using previously-burned password reset disk is the most direct and efficient method to recover the forgotten login password.
