geeza, unfortunately people DON'T forget their bios passwords....they write them down and keep them in a safe place. This forum does NOT help people with password issues because we have NO idea if you are the rightful owner. I'm sure if your new laptop was stolen and someone was trying to crack the password (the password is intentionally used as an anti-theft precaution) you wouldn't be happy about it.

We have tons of people coming to the forums to ask us to illegally crack passwords and the list goes on.

I do PC repairs for a living, yes, but in this forum we are all volunteers helping others, trying to help people gain knowledge on how to perform repairs on their computers without having to pay big dollars for repairs. I hope that answers your question.

To be fair, I think XpUser4Real, was claiming that if the bios password was unknown from the beginning and you purchased it from a dealer, then theoretically that dealer may have inadvertently sold you a misplaced/ weirdly acquired laptop. I don't think the post accuses you of being a thief. If it truly is an accidental forget, there are easy options through dell since you are the legitimate owner.
