I don't know how other members feel about this particular question as it brings up a dilemma of sorts.   I have had many questions on this and unless I can confirm that you are indeed the owner of said machine, I will not reveal hardware service tips and tricks that may compromise the real owners data.   That being said, a search of google will likely guide you to the info you seek.  Sorry.

I see this on just about every forum.  Dozens of "users" who forgot the BIOS or WIN logon password.  Through a forum or any chat room, there is no positive way to identify the owner of any device.  As posted above Dell support provides the answer you seek.

I see no point...in trying NOT to provide...information that the system manufacturer openly provides for its users.  There can be no question of the intent of the system manufacturer or the reasons such information is available to anyone capable of using a search engine or the support function at the Dell website.

Being that I operate a business servicing computers, my insurance company had some very strict guidelines on this type of bypassing manufacturers security protocols.   That's the way it is in the U.S.A.
