No, if a password has been placed on the BIOS, it will ask every time you boot the PC. It's a security setting.

The only way to get rid of the screen/question is to erase the BIOS password. Of course, then you have no protection against unauthorized use of the PC.

If you really do want to remove the password, you will do that in BIOS setup. Watch the screen during boot for the correct key to press to enter setup. Most Dells use F2, sometimes Del.

If you need more reference, see
for an explanation of you BIOS setup screens if you can't easily find your documentation.

You need to enter setup, then change the password to nothing at all, hit f10 save and exit it will reboot your system without the need to put the password in at startup.

Yes that is so

But this is a Power On Password that works before any of the existing OS starts to get loaded so short of removing it completely there is nothing that you can do to prevent it from asking for this.
