If it is a the BIOS password then removing the CMOS battery for a few seconds and replacing it should so the trick.

However, seeing as this is a laptop if may well be a hard-disk password that you are being asked for. If this is the case then you need to contact DELL and will probably need to show proof of ownership.

This is a security device built into laptops because they are so easy to steal.

Dell Latitude BIOS Password Recovery
Christophe Grenier has written a program that will calculate the master BIOS password for Dell Latitudes from the Service Tag number. That program is available at

If you cannot boot your Latitude to run this program, you can get the master password for your Dell by calling Dell Technical Support at (800)624-9896.

Dell Technical Support will request the Service Tag and Express Service Code from the bottom of your Latitude.

If you were not the original owner of the Latitude, Dell will transfer registration of the used Latitude from the original owner with only the Service Tag and Express Service Code from the tag on the laptop.

To transfer the registration of a used Dell Latitude, fill out the Transfer of Ownership form on Dell's web site.
