    I just bought a laptop from an estate sale and it has the bios password set , so I am locked out.I contacted Dell and the o my wanted to sell me the service e to unlock it for $175. The laptop didn't cost much more than that new so I refuse to spend that much to un.elock this device.. I even bought the operating system USB drive from Dell but I cannot get to the boot order menu, so I can't even use the flash drive to boot up the machine. I am hoping someone can help me get past this issue so I can use my laptop. Can anyone help me remove the bios password from my laltop? It is a Dell Inspiron 11 3000 series.The service tag is 3HFVG52 the express coder is 584933494. Right before it shuts down from 3 failed attempts, it throws this code [5F444AF9BA2CDF04J. Thanks for helping me!

    It's really expensive to unlock it for $175, the usual password tools are not so expensive as i know ,

    Just in case it is a normal password removing the CMOS battery for 20 seconds or so sometimes removes the password.

    If you get desperate I suppose you could put the hard drive in a caddy connect it to another computer and reformat it. It would of course mean reinstalling the proper version of Windows back on it. Not sure if there is a way of removing the Password while in the caddy

    You're talking about Windows password tools, this thread is talking about BIOS passwords, two very different things....
