"Can anyone help me"

Sure, Dell can help you for $60. There are other places that will do it for less. Or you can install a new HDD.

I think I am not making myself clear.
The E521 as soon as you turn it on, the first screen is
"Enter Password"
If you don't have it, it won't go any further, have tried some Programs
but they do not even start, CD REom is not in action yet.
Have taken the Hard Drive out and installed a brand new one,
still the same situation.
This is a boot up password.

What happens if you attempt to boot without a hard drive?

No difference when the HD is disconnected.

"Enter Password"

first and only screen
