Dell Portable computer BIOS and Hard Drive Password Reset

Dell portable system have a BIOS level capability for a System Password and a Hard Drive Password. These passwords are designed to protect user data if the security of the system is compromised. Because of this, there is not a hardware reset (Remove battery, move a jumper) like on a desktop system to clear the password.

The only way to bypass a forgotten BIOS or HDD password on a Dell portable system is to contact Dell Technical Support, (1-800-624-9896 in the USA), confirm that you are an authorized user of the system (Prove that the system isn't stolen) and once validated, Dell Tech support will assist in granting you access to the system.

NOTE: Systems produced after September 2004 may not have free lifetime telephone support and my incur a fee for technical support from Dell.

How do I use the password protection?


Your questions isn't too specific but I hope this helps

There are several ways to incorporate password protection. You can set the computer to require a boot up password in the computer BIOS. You have to enter the computer BIOS as soon as you turn it on; with a Dell press [F2], with HP press [Esc] and select system configuration. In the BIOS you can set the BIOS Administrator password - controls the ability to change BIOS settings, the computer boot password - when enabled it requires the user to enter the bootup password before the computer will boot, and set the hard drive access password - controls the users ability to access a hard drive.

The next level of password protection is at the operating system level - account access levels, privilege levels, and passwords. Dependent of operating system you can also set hard drive encryption
