Hi, welcome and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am glad to assist you today.

I am very sorry about your issues. Please try to enter a guessed or random password ***** times in a row. What happens then? Did you get a hash code, error code or service tag on screen?

Please let me know by replying to me here so that I can help you further.

Best regards,

IT says Password ***** Code (11281) System Service Tag (C074DT1)
Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.


Thank you for writing back with that information. Unfortunately, with this kind of system response when you enter 3 wrong passwords in a row, there is NO master password ***** for you.

Your first possible source for unlock codes in this case is from commercial websites who offer unlock codes based on these error codes and service tags.

The second source for unlock codes will be from Dell itself.

How do you wish to proceed with this?

You're welcome. Yes, please call Dell and see if they can provide you with the unlock code or the password ***** on the error code your computer is asking for you.

Please let me know your results so that I can assist you further.

Best regards,
