    Ten bucks? The going rate to fix a password is $150, and Dell charges $250, after you establish ownership.

    The system does not want you modifying a password. Computer builders and sellser, corporations, non-profits, and government agencies have a lot invested in NOT having anybody get a password fix for $10. The system must know that you cannot swipe a computer from someone's office or car, then pay $10 to get 250,000 names and ID information.

    In most parts of the world, it is becomming illegal to change the password on any computer for which you are not licensed to do so. You can do your own., I assume.

    Beware of those "technicians" from other countries willing to help you.

    This is not supposed to be easy. Some computer companies say it is impossible. IBM Lenovo Thinkpads require a replacement of the motherboard.

    Hello everyone..
    This is my first time posting, I am trying to help a friend with their computer.
    They bought a Dell Inspiron 1521 from a Pawn Shop for dirt cheap and it has them locked out with the system bios password. #JQB14F1-595B . I have seen that some guy named Rustam_ has helped people in the past and hopefully I can find someone that can help me. My friend is broke so spending money is not an option he says..lol

    Anyways thank you all for your time,
