    Hello everyone,

    I set the User Password and Supervisor Password in BIOS when i got my M15x, but i became annoyed with it, so i decided to remove it again. I cleared the User Password only, saved settings and rebooted. Unfortunately it still asked me for a password, but if I entered nothing (just pressing enter), my own password, or other things I tried, it just said that the password was invalid.

    I could change it in the BIOS i thought! But oh no! That password was also all of a sudden changed and i am now starting to get a little pissed after hanging on Dell's technical support for about an hour with music playing.

    Does anyone know a master password or any workaround? I cant even boot from a CD to do any cracking or anything.

    Thanks in advance.

    Not allowed to discuss these things on this thread.. You must work with dell to resolve.
