You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program. Click on one of these links to download HIREN'S BOOTCD :- http://www.hirensbootcd.net/http://220.127.116.11/
Start your computer, tap on the F8 key, choose SAFE MODE, once the computer boots up go to CONTROL PANEL and choose USER ACCOUNTS you should be able to change your passwords from there and just re-boot the system and use your new pass word.
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
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
On boot up hold down F8 you should get a black screen and among other listing will be start from last know time the machine worked[or word to that effect] use the up/down arrow to get to it and hit Enter.
See what happens Come back if not go we will try another way.
