    Contact Dell. Every Dell laptop has an assigned, unique backdoor password. All you have to do is provide proof that you are the owner. (That means your name and address has to match their records). Even if your machine is out of warranty, they will still assist you at no charge.

    Well, this was their policy years ago when I had a similar situation. I hope they haven't changed.

    Thanks Mutagen for your reply.

    I have already contacted dell on this issue and there is no such policy as you told. Thats the reason I am on this forum to get myissue resolved.

    Please someone help me with password.
