You will need to reset the bios to remove the password - sometimes it is as simple as removing the bios battery for a time and sometimes it is more involved.

You might find a helpful youtube video about this.

The BIOS setup password is stored in NVRAM and can only be accessed with that password. On the bottom of the laptop there is a Service Tag number. Dell support site can use that number to generate a master password for you. http://support.dell.com/support/index.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&~ck=mn If you need further help please post back.

Hopefully, one will work.

Dell inspiron laptop 1545 administrator password won't unlock


Will it boot into the operating system or is it stuck at the bios password?
If it is the Windows administrator password then I'll need more information such as what version of Windows you are on. If it is Linux then let me know.

If it is stuck with a bios/boot password then you'll need to reset it by removing the CMOS battery for a few seconds. This will clear any settings in the BIOS setup.

Contact Dell tech support 800-624-9896 (USA) confirm you are an authorized user of the system and they will assist with generating a master password, There is no universal password or jumper to manually reset it, you have to contact Dell.
