According to me if you are not able to access boot menu then it is difficult to reset password manually. So you can use password recovery software (click http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Reset+Windows+Password+stellar to search) to reset windows password.

SOURCE: Remove BIOS sytem password

Power down the laptop. take a pen and paper and write down what you rementber as the password that you put in.
remember; the password is case senstive.
This a safe way to do it. since Dell have put in non-volatile chip for the BIOS password. you have to disasseble the laptop and in order to reset the password.
so, try to remember and see if the password that you wrote down makesense. and try again

SOURCE: hp compaq nx8220 - Administrator password cannot be reset

If this issue started with a motherboard error that appeared to be a faulty CMOS battery and then it started incorrectly detecting your memory and now is asking for a password it could be a faulty motherboard. If you are 110% you or anyone else has set a password on that laptop then I would say your motherboard needs to be replaced. It is a difficult process to reset admin passwords on most laptops due to a security chip that will prevent the trick of removing the battery from working. In all honestly if no one has set a password and the motherboard THINKS someone has then even if you reset the password you will still have issues. There is a small chance your CPU or RAM could be defective. But, again going back to it saying you have a password set that was never set. It just yells faulty motherboard unless someone has set a password without you knowing.

How can i have the password bios of laptop dell E6420


f you are running Dell servers, it is recommended to enable BIOS password. This is will prevent accidental changes done to Dell BIOS settings by others who get physical access to the server.

You can setup two different types of passwords in Dell BIOS:

System Password: This will be prompted before the system can boot up, and load the operating system.
Setup password: The system will prompt for this password only when you are trying to access the BIOS settings.

Depending on your situation, it might be a good idea to enable both the system and setup password at the BIOS level. I recommend that you at least enable BIOS password.
Press F2 for System Setup

When the Dell server is booting up, press F2 to start system setup, from where you can change Dell BIOS settings.

BIOS System Security

From the Dell BIOS main menu, scroll down to "System Security" and press enter.

Password Not Enabled

From here, you can see that both the System and Setup password is not enabled by default.

Enable System Password (and Setup Password)

Scroll to "System Password" and press enter, which will prompt you to enter the password that you like to set for the system. Please understand that if you set this password, you have to enter this password everytime you start the system. Do the same thing for Setup Password.

Don't forget this bios password. If you forget, then you have go through the painful process of resetting the Dell BIOS password.
Password is Enabled

Once you've enabled both the password, from the "System Security" menu, you'll see that that both system and setup password is enabled as shown below.

password is set

System Password Prompt (During Startup)

From now-onwards, anytime you start the system, it will not load the operating system, unless you specify the system password as shown below.

12345

Setup Password Prompt (To Access BIOS)

If you press F2, to get to the BIOS, it will prompt for the setup password as shown below. If you don't enter a valid password here, you cannot access the Dell BIOS settings anymore.

Administrator password Dell Inspiron 1720


If the system is asking for an administrator password in Windows and you are wanting to format and reinstall the system, then the password shouldn't be an issue. Most inspiron systems are equipped with a PC Restore partition CTRL+F11 just after the Dell Splash Screen should enable the restore process. If PC Restore doesn't work, then boot to the XP CD and format the NTFS partition and install Windows XP clean. If you have Windows Vista, the PC Restore is run from the F8 Boot menu. If no restore partition is accessible in Vista, then again Boot to the Vista DVD and format the NTFS partition and install VIsta.
