A laptop BIOS password is more secure than a traditional desktop to help protect the data if it was stolen. If you are the original owner of the laptop, we highly recommend contacting the manufacturer of the laptop. Companies such as Dell, Lenovo, and Toshiba can reset the password if you are the original owner using the Service Tag, disk, or give you exact steps for your laptop.
Your computers boot up has password protection enabled or you hard drive has been encrypted for security.
This is very difficult to fix as it's meant to protect your personal information in the event your PC is stolen or lost.
Hello SirI can help you .Send me service tag which u can see on the bottom cover or turn on laptop u will see on screen hash code like this XXXXXXX-595B or D35B,A95B or 2A7B send me complete .i will send You MASTER PASSWORD Thanks.
If you are the first owner off the laptop you can just call them att your local dell help centre.

This is to prevent access to stolen laptops.
The password that many people call "BIOS PASSWORD" is not located in bios at all on dell laptops.
The password is stored in a IC called EEPROM
it is located under the motherboard and is soldered in place.
to manipulate the eeprom is not for beginners,
but it is possible to shortcircuit the EEPROM to
get it in "factory reset" mode
I believe that's a BIOS password you are referring to. If the laptop is indeed stolen then this will weed it out.
Call the manufactuer and ask about your problem. They should need certain information to help you, they can help you, sometimes it involves sending it in. HOWEVER, if it's stolen, it will be flagged when it's service tag (BIOS related and unchangable) comes up with someone else's name, address, etc. And authorities will end up being at your door. So, if it's stolen I guess you'll find out :) And if not, well, then your problem will be fixed.
