    hi xreigninflame and welcome to Techspot :)

    I'm not really sure what your question is, but it looks to me like you have a dell notebook with a BIOS password that you forgot (or don't know)... is that correct?

    if yes, then you may find your answer here----> Dell Bios Password Removal

    if not, then give use your system specs along with a detailed description of what the problem is so we can help you :giddy:

    cheers :wave:

    i cannot log on to my computer because i do not have the bios password

    i dont really have the system specs because its my girlfriends

    is there some genreic master passwords for the bios that i can use?

    there is no "generic master password".

    you can try the password generator found on Paragon's website but you need to know your service tag (the original service tag should be printed on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop)

    otherwise, you will need to try the "paperclip method" which can also be found on Paragon's webiste
