Question about Dell Inspiron XPS M1710 Notebook
Have not idea what my password is. Laptop starts up and goes directley to system password which I don't have. I unplugged the CMOS battery (I think) that didn't work. I'm trying to find a password jumper or someway to bypass this system password. It says it is an intel core 2 duo processor. Can you help
I don't agree with this solution. I tried even more with this method and it does not work. I actually removed the cmos battery and disassembled the entire system for about an hour. After reassembling the laptop, the f***king password was still there! Some one said there are codes that can crack the password and that is what I am looking for right now

There are no password jumpers on the laptop. The coin cell cmos battery is located under the modular cover on the bottom of the unit. there are 3 captive screws and one none captive screw.
remove the systems primary battery and ac adapter, then remove the modular cover, then carefully disconnect the coin cell battery connector from the motherboard. leave it disconnected for several minutes before reassembling it.
If this is not sucessful, try doing a bios update. go to http://support.dell.com and click on driver downloads, search by service tag, select bios, download the file and create a bootable cd with the file on it. after completing the bios update I believe the password will be erased.
