irmalbert, I suggest that you get Dell to help you with this. I went to their website and used the model number to find this article on how to reset the BIOS password.
It would seem that you need the Service Tag number to get the information. If you login at dell.com with the service tag, it might show you the reset procedure. Or, they might require that anyone who wants a BIOS reset to call in for verification. Either way, this is probably the most straightforward way to get rid of that password.
