    There's 44 pages of posts devoted to this problem here: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/43628-FAQ-(forgotten)-Dell-BIOS-Password

    Try this :tq5904fOdQX5b2zt .. Make sure you're using a qwerty keyboard, and be careful of the capital and lower case letters and 0 and O it must be exact.

    thans for the reply, i have tried that password but nothing, tried with ctr+enter and without but still nothing, been looking for a keygen to get it but found one but didn't work so i came here hoping to get it resolved, read something that every laptop has a different master code or something like that, thanks

    Haven't checked if the links above are the same as this, but this is something I have used in the past to unlock Laptop BIOS's, worth a shot

    i wish i could get into any kind of boot settings or anything in that matter, cannot get into anything because of the need of the bios password, i even tried to put a windows 7 OS to format but cannot access anything due to the locked bios

    Ah you can't even get past POST to boot the OS ?

    Sounds like you're gonna need to dismantle the laptop and disconnect the CMOS battery like you can do on desktops to remove the BIOS password

    I've got this too, never tested it though

    I use Hirens Boot CD 9.8, that has a password removal tool after you boot from the CD
    http://www.hirensbootcd.org/hbcd-v98/

    It's either Active Password Changer or Offline NT/2K/XP Password Changer that works, one gives a memory error, one of them works, I can never remember which, both are in the same list on the CD

    Do you mean the Windows password, or are you talking about a hard drive password?

    Hiren is a great tool assortment, got it on every flashdrive I own.

    Hiren's what you need.
    you've got to boot independently from the hard drive
    and then recover the administrator password, or reset it
    then with that info you can reboot in windows , log in as administrator with the password you extracted or created, and reset the passwords for all the other users

    also there's another Linux based password recovery cd that I've got that performs the same function

    No, I posted you the version I did for a reason, they removed the password removal tool from the newer ones

    Just use what you're given here, no need to question anything
