    Did you forget the password, or aren't you able to contact the previous owner?

    They intentionally make this difficult. We have laptops stolen all the time and I'm hoping the scum that got the last one can't get it reset. If you are a valid owner, you should be able to contact Dell and get support. If that's a fairly new machine, you might be under warranty.

    Knucklebuster is right, the key word is: are you a valid owner!
    I got an older Dell notebook {I'm the second owner} and had a rough time trying to convice Dell I was the valid owner now. I finaly got the master password for my notebook, lol and I'm not going to password it tho. I don't see any need to..
