Try this:

1- shut it down then open the computer box
2- find a green or blue jumper beside the memory slot or Data cable slots
3- remove jumper , then turn computer on
wait for 10 sec then shut it down
4- put the jumper back and close the computer box
5- turn the pc on and have fun

Testimonial: "That probably would have worked as well. I ended up removing power cord, then moving jumpers (there were two CMOS jumpers) and putting them one prong over. Then removed the CMOS battery on the motherboard and then held the power button to make sure there was no power left in the tower. Let it sit for a couple hours and put everything back the way it was. Whala the BIOS password was gone! Thank you for the suggestion!"

    Bios password generator dell inspiron 1545


    BIOS passwords can be reset in two ways:

    1. using software 2. using hardware.

    I would first try resetting using software, here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

    !BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
    You can download it here:
    http://www.syschat.com/download120.html

    CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools
    http://www.syschat.com/download121.html&act=down

    You will need to create a bootable Dos, or Linux or NT cd in order to run them.

    Good Luck!

    Blank screen on desktop (dell inspiron 530s); requesting a password.


    Someone has turned on the BIOS password on you and therefore the PC will not let you boot up unless you enter the correct password. The problem is you cannot turn off the password option unless you know the password. I would start by asking other people who had access to you computer what they set the password to. If nobody comes clean, then you will have to call Dell Tech Support to get them to reset the password for you. They will give you a master BIOS password to override the one set and turn off the option.
