    I need a password to turn the computer on!

    I tried removing the battery I removed the battery. I waited for more than a minute (I used a stopwatch) and replaced the battery to where I took it from. I turned on the computer and the BIOS password still needs to be entered in order for me to access my OS!

    I need a password to turn the computer on!

    Would I need to reload the operating system? Sorry if the "first things first" thing offended :-(. Is there somewhere I can look for pictures on what to do to the motherboard? I am worried that I will unplug the wrong battery and totally screw up the system. How can you tell if it is a BIOS...

    I need a password to turn the computer on!

    First things first, it isn't a laptop it is a desktop system. It is a DELL and I don't think it is an error. It is more of a security setting. I bought the computer. Addendum: I heard there is something...
