Hello,

My name is Richard; I work for Dell's Online Community Outreach group. Forgetting your computer's bios password is not unusual, so we have a way to unlock that. What we need is the serial system ID number that appears on screen when you are asked to place in the bios password.

You can either call our technical support or you can pm me the information to unlock the bios.

Regards,

I purchased this laptop from an estate auction but it has the bios locked. Is there a default password that I can unlock it with. My service tag is 5MLS2C1-595B

Thanks

Read Richard's post again:

Can you help

Once again, you have to read Richard's post. He's very specific about what to do with this information.
(PM or Tech Support).
This is a constant problem-we supply answers and the OP doesn't read them or supply the requested info. A great chance for you to become a better user of sites like this one.

Hello Richard i have an idea to clear bios settings.It is a popular way in old systems to clear bios. Just do it, At the moment you start the system press and hold the 'SHIFT' key for a while. I think it will work. best of luck!

Again, read the post more carefully:

My recommendation would be calling technical support.

My Apologies, I'm new to blogging. What exactly is PM you?

'PM' is short for private messaging. It's a way for members in a community system like DaniWeb to communicate, well, privately.

But seeing that DellOutreach hasn't posted in several months, I'd say your best option is just to call Dell support.

Richard B,

I have an Inspiron 5150, that's Bios password blocked and it's code is
6T25041-A95B. Other than replaceing the EEPROM chip is there a way to unlock it
without the original paasword?


Thanks,

Note to everyone:

You have basically two options for unlocking your Dell BIOS password:

a) Determine if you can unlock it yourself, then take appropriate action. Or just research a little.

b) Use Dell technical support (either send a private message to DellOutreach, or call Dell support). You'll need the system ID number that appears on the screen when you're booting up. If unsure, use this option.

Finally, this thread is going nowhere with everyone posting their serial numbers, so I'm going to close it.
