SOURCE: 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).
