had this problem on a work computer...Dell Opti 9020. We don't use this feature so it should not have come up...Contacted Dell, and they generated a password...Will probably verify ownership though.

Heather, there is no way of bypassing it. It is the BIOS password and can not simply be bypassed. You can check on the Dell support site and try to follow those instructions. Anything else, you will have to call Dell and see if they can issue a standard password, based on your computers models number etc.

@dopeboy unplug your power supply, remove the cmos battery inside the desktop once you have it out press and hold the power button down for 60 seconds then take a screw driver touch the power supply first then short the holder for the cmos battery on the sides to the bottom. this will drain any residual power for good measure you may want to remove the ram and reset it this will erase any stored mem of old bios Hope this helps

You used to be able to take the battery and the CMOS battery out and it would reset.

Not sure on these Dells though - Oldturkey seems to know his stuff ;-)

It seems like a BIOS password and the best way to reset BIOS password is to take the motherboard backup battery apart. Simply just take out the small battery out and leave it like this for about 10 mins and then put the battery back inside the slot then power on your PC this shall remove the any BIOS password.

Go into the bios, and go down to security and select system password and it will say type in password and press enter twice and it will remove the password
