Sorry, you won't get any help for password override here at Toms' Hardware.

As long as you are the original owner, just send it back to Dell and prove you are the original owner and they will charge you a nominal fee.

If you stole the laptop, then maybe this will stop you from stealing another laptop. Just so that you know, there are 3 different passwords that can be set up for laptops:

1. BIOS - Well, you just figured that out, huh?
2. Login - Yeah, everyone knows about this one.
3. Hard Drive - If you don't know this one, then you cannot access the hard drive at all even if you install the HDD in another PC.

JAGUARSKX - you are not an intelligent person. People who go searching for a password reset, do not want to spend the money to go to Dell to get it. A Thief wil not have a problem spending $80 to pay for a service, Dell or otherwise to reset it. Also, a thief will also have no problem opening it up and just shorting out the Bios and resetting it manually.

the comment "if you stole the laptop" is unkind, rude and immature.

Why not stick to the facts. The BIOS is difficult to reset because it is put on a laptop to support security from theft usage. If you bought it, the best bet is to try and locate person who sold it to you and either ask for the password or ask them to pay for recovery.

sometimes companies fail and their assets are sold, some of these assets are laptops with passwords and they are purchased legitimately but the manufacturer does not care and some jerks can't seem to understand that people spend hard earned cash on a laptop and find a problem like this. I sure hope the jerks that think everyone that has a password problem and are thieves forget their passwords or the system just changes it on them possibly during a lightning strike power surge and then they have to cry in their beer.
