While removing the onboard battery and disconnecting all power for 5 minutes may clear the bios, some passwords are written into NvRam (non volitile Ram). This may require you to move some jumpers. Try this.
It may be necessary, on occasion, to clear the CMOS settings. When the CMOS is cleared, all information stored in the CMOS is replaced by default data, which means that all of the configuration information, such as hard drive types and I/O port setup, is cleared, including the password. Use the following procedure to clear CMOS:
Power down the computer.
Remove the left cover of the computer.
Wearing an anti-static wristband grounded to the chassis, remove the jumper from pins 1 - 2 of the Clear CMOS jumper block (JP15) and install it on pins 2 - 3.
Remove the jumper from pins 2 - 3 of the Clear CMOS jumper block (JP15) and install it on pins 1 - 2. (NOTE: Some earlier systems will power up as soon as the jumper is removed from pins 1-2. Later versions of the BIOS change this, 6.00.10 or later.)
Reinstall the cover and power up the computer.
Run the BIOS Setup program to reconfigure the system.
I think the only way past a forgotten BIOS password is a CMOS clear, which would involve dismantling the laptop to get to the motherboard and find a clear CMOS jumper, or pull the CMOS battery, which can be a risky maneuvre.
Hi Sadly there is no easy fix for this, you will be presented with a pass request code when you have tried and failed to enter the correct pass? This requires a response code, which you need to get from HP
I don't think there is such password.
You could contact dell and ask for the password if there is.
If not then best option is to remove and reseat the CMOS battery.
Contact Dell and tell them to provide you with the steps to remove and reseat the CMOS battery.
It will reset all the BIOS values.
On HP DV6000 series laptops, to clear the BIOS password, find the Cmos Battery (or RTC battery) and disconnect it from the motherboard for at least 10 minutes. This will clear the CMOS and clear the passwords. This is straight from the service manual. Once the time is over reconnect the battery and power the system back up, make sure you go right into the BIOS and reset the date and time. This is usually accomplished by striking the delete key or the F2 key during the HP splash screen.
Open it up.
Remove CMOS battery for 30 seconds, the one about the size of a quarter or nickel.
Before putting it back in, hold down power button, WITHOUT it haveing a battery or AC adapter to clear all power to the CMOS whatsoever.
