\015 Please help, i was give a used Dell inspiron 1525. However when i turn it on it asks for a authentication password. The lap top is not stolen. I have the tag number but tech support wont help me.\015

Answers :

The only way to bypass the BIOS password on a Dell Portable, is with either the original password or with the assistance of Dell Tech Support to generate a master password. From your post, You indicate that you could not verify ownership information registered on the system, and Tech Support would not assist. So you need to get the previous registered owner's information and submit a change of ownership here: http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/change_order/tag_transfer?c=us&cs=2684&l=en&s=pub&~ck=anavml\015\012
\015\012If you cannot get the previous owner's data then you only option is replace the motherboard. (There is no hardware setting that will allow you to bypass a set BIOS password)
