Easy solution but sometimes hard to do because of close quarters.What you need to do is locate the watch battery inside of the lap top.It may be under one of the back panels but not all ways.If you have to open the case it is super easy to break something and some will only open an inch because of a small electric ribbon hooked to the top board.What you do is remove the watch battery for ten minutes and then put it back in.Be sure and ground your self by touching the metal frame because if you have any static electricity and it jumps to the mother board it will fry the motherboard.If your not handy with delicate work I would take it to a technician. Good Luck.

    Bummer!
    I have another solution that I'm checking with FixYa to see If I can use it as an answer.If you start your PC and tap F8 at the same time you should be able to access safe mode.When a screen comes up that has a list of options one of which is safe mode use the arrow up button on the key board and highlight safe mode.Hit enter key and another screen will come up asking you if you want to enter safe mode hit yes and next your desktop will come up.Click on the start button click on Control Panel .If your in classic view great. click on Users Accounts and clear the password.Make an account for your self with administrator privileges.I'll check some more and see if there's any expert tips on this problem.When you tap f8 key don't go fast and keep tapping until the logo or safe mode comes up.The program that I'm trying to get approved is only for Alphanumeric passwords once you add a number before the forth space it makes for a strong password. 3 out of 5

    "Dell's inspiron 2200 notebook computer is very affordable. It is stronger than other budget notebook computers out there. Now, i'm being frank here, The computer is not worth four or five stars, soley because of the motherboard. The motherboard has been a problem during the first 5 months of the system's life. I have had it catch fire on my lap, start smoking up, not having it charge, and everything in between. The A/C adapter is also an issue, as with most Dell computers. Overall, if the computer wouldn't give me so many problems, i would have given it a four."

    OK I never ran into this before and I used same answer on Yahoo answers many times.I did some research and the number one solution is still the same.One person said it could take days.There is faster way if you want to try it.Unplug the laptop, use the laptop until the battery is discharged or just remove your battery, this is up to you.now take out the watch battery and touch the battery on the bottom and the side (+-) with a 10,000 -ohm [resistor] to discharge any stored energy in the system.Be sure to ground yourself with a wrist strap grounded to the frame.(Radio Shack) Good Luck!Once the energy is out of the CMOS it should clear the password.Please let me know if this dose the trick.

    Unlock a password on com


    Is it a windows or bios password if it's a windows password, you can use a password reset cd like the one here:


    http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/


    If it's a bios based password meaning there is no windows logo or any sign of windows starting up, with this model you would have to call dell.

    Corrupt & Locked Bios


    When you flash the bios (normally from a floppy drive) it should overwrite anything that is there.
    In this case you must boot from the floppy. Unfortunately, with a laptop you don't have that option.
    I suggest you put the bios flashing utility that you probably downloaded with your bios update file on a flash drive. I think your laptop has the ability to boot from that.
    Anyway, on startup, press F12 until you get the boot options and try that.
    I take it that you know the support site URL, but just in case, it's support.dell.com

    Password Dell inspiron 2200


    The Dell BIOS password can only be bypassed by either the original password, or the Dell Master Password.  To get the Master Password, you will need to contact Dell Technical Support, and prove you are an authorized user of the system.  (If you bought it, you'll need to process a change of ownership https://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/change_order/tag_transfer?c=us&l=en&s=gen If the system is out of warranty, the tech support call may cost you $49 for the tech support incident to get a master password generated
