either find password or contact dell and be prepared to prove ownership.pws are there for security reasons.As we do not and will not legally help you get around this process.

If you're getting to the option of starting in safe mode, then it's not a hard drive password. If your drive was locked, you wouldn't even be able to load Windows. So are you asking for a Windows password fix?
