Specs: Windows XP sp1
I need help. A friend gave me a Dell Inspiron 8000 running Windows XP sp1. My problem is that everytime I try to boot, I get a message asking for a password, saying that the computer has been locked due to security reasons. It displays a number (#2BW7J01-595B) that is assigned to the computer. Is there a way to access a general password to access the BIOS or to get to the OS.

My friend is as clueless as I am and it seems it's easier to get the answer for life than to get an answer from Dell. However, thank you for the suggestion.
