Unfortunately the only way to do this is by removing your battery from the mother board.
When i am refering to the battery , i mean not only the normal battery which you can un hook and rehook again pretty easily but the one from the interiors of the laptop its called a CMOS battery. Befefore you go opening up the laptop physically make note of the BIOS settings, as these changes will be wipped out when you remove the CMOS battery
Refer to the dell documentation that may have come with the laptop as to how to open the laptop physically.
You can also try if you can override the BIOS by upgrading it from the Dell website. (Although this may not work)
Best of luck

install the ati omega drivers for your OS from http://www.omegadrivers.net/ati.php and follow the readme file. Note that although you have a 7-pin s video output, only use a 4 pin cable. After installing the drivers per the instructions in the readme file and rebooting, on the screen with the outputs where you've seen TV as a greyed out option, you now have the option to force TV output at the bottom... That was the missing feature that ATI's drivers did not support. You should be good to go from there. Additionally, some people suggest making sure the svideo cable is connected from the laptop to the TV when you boot up.

There are several ways to reset the password on the D600 laptop. Some require special eeprom reading equipment. However, there are some who've stumbled upon a "paper-clip" method that involves shorting the eeprom while booting the laptop. There are two of these methods in general.
One requires removing the entire cover of the laptop, then creating the mentioned short-circuit, then booting the laptop. This site: http://www.weeklygripe.co.uk/a709.asp#guide shows the process step-by-step with high-quality photos. If you are at all handy with a screwdriver, this can be done in about a half-hour and you are ready to go.
If you are a bit less handy, there is a one-panel removal trick that this guy has posted on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hx5HBHgv8T8&NR=1&feature=fvwp
The preferred method is to contact Dell. However, Dell will only help you if they can verify the chain of ownership of the laptop. This involves the original owner having thought to contact Dell and let them know that you are now the new owner. This can still be done now, if that owner is available and willing.
Also, there are companies that specialize in password recovery. Nearly every one of them will either get you the current password or reset it for you. Some also sell software to do the same. Since they are all nearly as effective as the other, you should really shop around for price if you choose to go this route.
Choose a method, be careful, and you will have your laptop unlocked in no time.
I hope this helps
