You have to do a password reset to unlock all (advanced) BIOS features. See the service manual (link below) page 33 + 34 how to do this. Take a good look at the picture, memorize the procedure, shutdown PC, unplug from mains, remove cover, find the PSWD jumper, move jumper from 2-3 to 1-2, wait 1/2 minute ( or less), reinstall the jumper to 2-3, ......... restart and hit F2 to enter BIOS SETUP ....... link to service manual:

My dell 1501 laptop bios pw i just picked one up from a swap meet i need to get into it any ideas?

Bios master passwords are generated by Dell Tech support 800-624-9896 (there is no manual reset with a jumper like on desktop system) Call Dell, validate you are an authorized user of the system, and they'll give you the password.

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.
