Re: locked dell notebook
You either have to install a new windows copy or you can do this.... The best option is to use your password reset disk. If you don't
have a password reset disk, you can reset the password by using another administrator
account, if you have one. If you reset a password using another
administrator account, you will permanently lose access to any e‑mail messages
or encrypted files that are on the administrator account that you are resetting
the password for. There may be a place on the web you can find a password reset disk, Hope that gets you going.

The best solution for a lost password on a BIOS lock is to call Dell Technical Support and give them that System # number. They can use it to provide the unlock code... After they validate your ownership of the laptop.
Most laptop or notebook computers feature enhanced BIOS security, and
BIOS passwords on laptops are hard to bypass. Several companies offer
laptop security chip services that can be used to bypass the BIOS
password on Dell laptops or notebooks and reset the security. They can
provide a master password from the Dell Service Tag of your Dell
laptop. This master password will allow you to bypass the existing
password and enter the BIOS and reset the unknown password. To generate
the master password they need to know the Dell Service Tag of your
unit. Dell Master Password Recovery does not require soldering or
disassembly of the laptop and supports most Dell models.
BIOS passwords can also be reset by replacing the laptop security chip.
Passwords can also be recovered from security chips that have been
removed from laptop or notebook systems. These passwords may be
required to attempt to unlock protected hard disks. Passwords recovered
from these chips are the original BIOS passwords and may be the same as
the hard disk password, but are not guaranteed to be the same and may
not unlock the hard disk.These are usually damaged in the process of
recovering the passwords and are not suitable for replacement into a
Hate to say this .. if the BIOS is locked , there is nothing much, that can be done.
You need to call Dell Tech support , verify the account information and they would give you an unlock code for the BIOS . Once thats is done opening windows is easy .
