Dell Inspiron Locked due to Intel Anti Theft

Hi,

My Dell Laptop is disabled using Intel (R) Anti - Theft Technology due to : Platform Attack Detected

And it is asking me for some sort of passphrase or server recovery token which i am unaware of.

I tried all the password that i remember and it is not getting unlocked.

After login into mcafee i cannot even find the option to reset the password.

DO ANYONE KNOW SOLUTION FOR THIS ISSUE. PLEASE HELP

This product's support has passed it's EOL, End Of Life, ages ago.  See: TS101986

Your best suggestion would be to contact either the machine's manufacturer or whomever sold it to you.

It usually involves a motherboard replacement, which is often more expensive than buying a new machine.
