    I also had the same problem with a latitude c640 (xxxxxxx-595B) time ago, and after asking here and there, and found out these are the only options:

    1. ask the seller for the password

    2. Call DELL and prove you're the owner so that they give you a master password

    3. Replace a microchip( something like "24xx16") with an empty one

    4. Short a couple legs of this microchip while the laptop it is booting up


    I am not allowed to post links here yet, so I cannot help you more

    By the way, I will never ever buy another used laptop on ebay since most of the times it will be a stolen one.
