Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 8000 Notebook ?

I have a dell computer that I purchased used. It worked fine until about a month ago. When you start it up it comes up with a gray screen and asks for a bios password. I called dell and refuse to help me because I am not the original purchaser of the laptop. Can anyone help me with fixing this? Is there a universal master password?


Answers :

Im sorry but bios passwords are set by the owner of the computer, probably the guy you bought it from. see online for a boot password resetter.
