  1. Hi,

    when i start the Latitude D510 Laptop of my friend, there comes a gray BIOS screen

    "This computer system, ..., is protected by a password authentification system. You cannot access the data on this computer without the correct password.

    Please type in the sytem or administrator password and press <Enter>."


    Unfortunately i can not call the dell support, because its not my laptop and i don't have the initial user data of the first owner.

    How can i bypass the system. Starting with a bootable CD with svctag.exe didn't worked (he don't started from CD).

    I hope, someone can help me.

    Thx in advanced.
