Assuming you are not connected to a network say at the office.

This looks like the BIOS password has been set. This is done by launching the BIOS setup and then enabling the system password feature.

Most systems you can press F2 to get into the BIOS or system setup at the moment you see the Dell logo. (This access key may also be displayed on the logo page, if it is not F2).

Oh dear. Can you find out who did it? That is the best option.
The password can be over ridden by a dealer. Contact Acer for details.
Hope this helps.

I cannot access my computer because somehow it developed a need for a password


Reboot your computer as soon as the Dell logo comes up hit the delete key and get into system bios. You will have search through the bios until you get to password then unclick it. The system should start normally. You could call Dell they will walk you through it.

Blank screen on desktop (dell inspiron 530s); requesting a password.


Someone has turned on the BIOS password on you and therefore the PC will not let you boot up unless you enter the correct password. The problem is you cannot turn off the password option unless you know the password. I would start by asking other people who had access to you computer what they set the password to. If nobody comes clean, then you will have to call Dell Tech Support to get them to reset the password for you. They will give you a master BIOS password to override the one set and turn off the option.

Dell 530s unplugged for 5 months now asking for password?


I appears you have a Power on Password, the password is stored on an EEPROM chip and removing the BIOS battery will not reset or remove the password.
Try this password - Dell

Dell inspiron8100 administrator password


Is this a Black screen?
If it is that is asking for a BIOS password. Is this your laptop? The person that put this password in this laptop is the only person that knows that answer. That is a security question that you will have to take up with the person that done it. You can also contact Dell and give them the serial number and see what they say. Make sure you give them your name and address when you call them. They will need to know this.

just use oph crack, use it to find a password/username then go to control panel, classic view in the top left corner, user accounts, "change the way you log on and off" then select the "welcome screen" option. if this happens still, you might be pressing a "lock" buttom to turn your pc off.
