    Thanks for the information. Unfortunately I can 't get to safe mode. The F8 does not respond! When I turn it on- asus screen comes up then password screen. That's as far as it goes. Any other options would be helpful thanks

My laptop asus g1s i need password bios for it I'm not putting it but it show after i fixed i problem in Graphics card


you may have had a bad graphics card. if it workes after changing the graphics card, the bios is still locked, but not for use when powering on the system. without a regular bios password, you cannot enter the setup from the startup menu. with a bios security password, you will need a password to unlock the screen preventing it from starting, this password can chain to a hard disk password unlocked by placing the system security password, which will then provide a prompt for the hard disk password. :) one locks the setup for the whole system. one locks the system from starting up, and one locks the hard disk from being read. there are three. without knowing the password, if the computer will not start and load your system, ie windows mac osx, you can have someone retrieve the password, or change the motherboard. if it starts, most people don't worry about it. if it cost more to have someone resolder the bios chip, replace the main or motherboard. if it starts and runs, use it and don't worry about it. :)

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.

Black enter password screen, but no password


I'm not sure if this will work but it may be that your system bios is asking for a password. If so, as you reboot the system, press F8 down until the system bios screen appears. Then page thru to see if the bios is asking for a system password. If so, you should be able to deactivate it thru the bios.

Hope this works.
