Dell D420, would the a master password reset help me?

  1. Hi guys,

    Before I post in the Dell password removal thread, would somebody please be able to answer this question.

    I can access my bios but cant change any settings like the boot order settings, the hdd password is not set. The admin bios password has been set. I need to turn this off in order to set the boot order.

    I've read about a grey screen but dont seem to have it.

    Would the master password be entered in the admin password setting screen?

    Or should I have some grey screen?

    From memory the service tag does end in 595B.

    Thanks in advance guys.

    Just to stop the pm's, I already purchased a master password from the famous auction site.
