password on harddisk

At the BIOS...

There is a Security Option where you can change the value (SYSTEM or SETUP)

If the value is SYSTEM, everytime it boot you need to enter a password.

If the value is SETUP, you need to enter the password if your going to setup the BIOS

So, you need to change it to SETUP...


Hope this help!

As your computer boots up enter the setup program. Usually you can hit delete. When you enter setup look around for security passwords.If it is enabled, it will ask for a password. Hit enter again without entering anything and it should change it todisabled.

If Dell just replaced the HD and it is asking for a password then call Dell period. Anyone on this forum should be telling you the same thing and if they are not shame on them. Ask the poeple of Tech Republic what I am talking about. They know. hjs
