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.

Dell Compuer Inspiron 1525 with a password lock. System #JT8D2H1-595B. Can I get the password to unlock it. Thanks Les

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.

If you have any other users you can try to remove your son's password from the other user account. If you don't then you'll need a password reset boot disk.

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.

Dell 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 computer.

Ex-girl put password as the adminastrator and i dont know it also my 1501 dell wont start in safe mode

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 .
