    Hi,
    I installed Linux Mint on an old Dell Laptop a couple of years ago.
    I fully intended to using linux on this machine at the time.
    However I cannot rember the login password.
    Is there a way round this to be able to gain access to my old laptop?
    Many thanks
    Bob

    (Re)install an operating system. Linux Mint has been updated several times, so you may as well get the latest version of it or whatever else you want to try.

    The Rules, to which you just agreed, do not allow any help trying to break a password.
