If you are referring to a complete reinstallation of your operating system in which it will restore the settings to factory, you may try using CTRL + F11.

If this function doesn't work your hard drive doesn't have the functionality to restore the settings to factory. You may need to check it also from your computer manufacturer.

If you are referring to reset your BIOS password. You need to get pass key from your computer manufacturer as well.

Keep me posted.

I'm in need of the master bios password for Dell Inspiron 15 3521 service tag # 46J20.

There is no such thing as a 'master bios password'. One password, one machine set by the owner or administrator.

You have to strip the computer down to the motherboard and reset.

You can buy the password as shown here for $45

How to Perform a BIOS or CMOS Reset and/or Clear the NVRAM - Dell days ago - Locate the 2-pin password connector (PSWD) on the system board. Remove the 2-pin jumper plug and set the jumper plug aside. Connect your keyboard and mouse, then connect your computer and monitor to electrical outlets and turn them on. After the operating system loads, turn the computer off.

Master reset code for Inspiron 1764

This is a laptop computer, not a phone or a tablet. There is no master reset code. You reformat the computer using either the discs that came with it, or you use the software provided on a hidden, or visible partition on the hard drive. It is not for the faint of heart, or anyone inexperienced.

    Hi Jennifer,

    More than one accounts are needed to be able to change or reset the password on the computer. you will need to login as the master administrator on the computer and then be able to access the option to be able to do this.

    if master admin account is not activated or configured then you need a technician to do that first. and then take a backup before you make any changes.

    call 1-877-805-1027 for expert assistance.

    Most laptop or notebook computers feature enhanced BIOS security, and BIOS passwords on laptops are hard to bypass. Several companies offer laptop security chip services that can be used to bypass the BIOS password on Dell laptops or notebooks and reset the security. They can provide a master password from the Dell Service Tag of your Dell laptop. This master password will allow you to bypass the existing password and enter the BIOS and reset the unknown password. To generate the master password they need to know the Dell Service Tag of your unit. Dell Master Password Recovery does not require soldering or disassembly of the laptop and supports most Dell models.

    Dell BIOS passwords can also be reset by replacing the laptop security chip. Passwords can also be recovered from security chips that have been removed from laptop or notebook systems. These passwords may be required to attempt to unlock protected hard disks. Passwords recovered from these chips are the original BIOS passwords and may be the same as the hard disk password, but are not guaranteed to be the same and may not unlock the hard disk.These are usually damaged in the process of recovering the passwords and are not suitable for replacement into a computer.

    Need info on bios password reset

    If your laptop is under warranty, you can call dell, provide them with some information, and they can give you the master password for your laptop (provided you are the current owner, and obtained it legally). There is no universal master password for every computer, but there is a individual one for each individual computer. If your computer is not under warranty, however, they will charge you. I have heard it can be anywhere from $75 to $150 USD. You can also try to bypass it by updating/upgrading your bios (using a bios flash utility).
