Hi

There are usually 3 passwords on Dell laptops
Admin password keeping you out of bios
User password stopping boot up and any use of laptop

Hard disk password stopping use of hard drive in laptop or any other PC
This can only be over come by erase format ata command

Windows password can easily be cleared ( unless windows encryption is enabled)


If you can't boot up you can't run the software which erases password on eeprom

If you contact a Dell or laptop specialist they should be able to help you provided you have evidence of ownership

If you purchased direct from Dell owners details are available to Dell

This forum does not allow any direct advice on removing any sort of password protection
