Did you try to just click the ENTER key? without trying any fancy passwords.
Sometimes that's all you need
please let us know if it isn't.

If you did not set a password, first try by simply hitting enter (no words or characters in the box). If this does not work, restart the computer and press F11 or F12 to enter set up (only one or the other will bring you into setup). Once in setup, find where to set\change password. For "new" leave blank, and press enter. Delete anything that may be in this box. Do the same for the next box(es) for "re-enter" password; leaving the box blank and pressing enter. At the very end (right) of the screen, it should give a list of exit options (after selecting "reset" or "save" password; select "save changes and exit" option. The computer should restart automatically and bring you to either 1. The "blue" password screen, for which you will press enter. 2. The operating system Desktop, i.e. Windows etc. where all your icons and apps are displayed. If thus does not work, you need to reset the computer to its default (factory settings) which can be done following the same steps, and finding this option in the menus provided. I do not know what OS you have, but if it is Windows then the above is where to go.

Black screen blue box saying


some one must have put in a boot password to your laptop,
follow this:
When booting up, enter your BIOS setup (usually by pressing the F2 key at the appropriate time).

Locate the BIOS Password section and turn the ON STARTUP password to off. There is no standard setup for BIOS, so I can't give you exact instructions.

If this does not work, try:
remove cell & start your pc you will here beep...beep...beep...

then turn off your pc & restore your cell.Start your pc and
password is removed.

there is a battery on motherboard,a button cell,you can try removing that and start computer, then put it back, bios settings will be lost.
you can also try removing any hardware like ram,if you have two,when system is off,turn on , it will prompt for changes , enter bios and try remove password.

somebody set a BIOS password on your computer and there is no way to bypass it, if it is your computer and you are registered with Dell (assuming this is a Dell) then tech support can override this and reset the password, but they to a ton of account and security verification to determine that it's your laptop before they do this, and only a Dell supervisor can do it, not any of the phone techs.
