Hello,

Removing the battery on this model will not clear the BIOS password as you have found. The password is stored in flash memory. Her is a link to a site that can generate a unlock code for your system from the number string displayed on the password screen.

SOURCE: How do I remove forgotten BIOS password?

1) You can reset BIOS to default settings by pressing <Alt><F>

2) I am not sure about the laptops, but in the Dell Desktops usually there is a reset jumper on the motherboard which is seated on 2pins out of 3, you just need to remove that jumper turn on the pc once and the turn on the pc again by reseating the jumper to its original place. You can try this with your laptop, I guess the jumper should be somewhere close to the CMOS battery.

3) Remove the battery and keep it away for atleast 30 mins. and replace it again.

NOTE: make sure while following step (3) and (4) the system should be completely turned off. Unplug the AC adapter, remove the battery and hold the power button for atleast 8 - 10 seconds.

let me know the output

SOURCE: Dell C610 battery cmos/bios

The removal and replacement instructions can be found in the dell service documents available at support.dell.com. You can look it up by service tag or model number. But in short, the procedures are. 1. Remove the hard drive, then remove the keyboard. The keyboard is removed by removing the 5 screws on the bottom of the laptop marked with a "K" beside them. Then the keyboard can be removed. be careful not to tear the ribbon cable, and you do not have to remove the ribbon cable. The battery will be in the center of the opening, it will have a white plug that plugs into the keyboard. Contrary to Ayyasam's recomendations above, it is not necessary to remove "all" the screws on the bottom, nor is it necessary to remove the bottom of the laptop. It should be a 5 minute project. Again for any Dell item, the factory repair manuals are available online, and have exact instructions including pictures and diagrams.

Happy Computing

Where is the bios chip on dell latitude e6400 mother board


For reseting BIOS, you should first try to remove CMOS battery. Put it back and BIOS reset is done. For location of CMOS battery, check laptop manual.

But first, you could try to perform factory reset on BIOS. You can access BIOS by pressing F2 during startup.

Bios


1) Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and main Battery.

2) The CMOS Battery is now referred to also, as the RTC Battery.
Real Time Clock

3) Turn the laptop over, bottom side up.
The large rectangular cover in the middle, is the Memory Door.
Loosen the screws, lift on the Memory Door; on the screw side.

The RTC Battery is a coin-cell battery, in a plastic holder ('Bag'), with two wires coming out, that end in a small male plug connector.

Unplug the male connector from the motherboard, remove the RTC Battery.

Past this point cannot tell you exact location of those jumper pads.
Usually under a piece of Mylar plastic.
Often under the Ram Memory modules, or under the Wireless Module. ('Card')

The RTC Battery helps retain that password.
However there is also a capacitor, or capacitors; that hold a trickle charge - INDEFINITELY, after ALL power is removed.

Briefly touching the aforementioned jumper pads, relieves this stored trickle charge.

Hmmm, looking for jumper pad information I ran into this;
Looks like the jumper pad method will not work either,

Read post -
applebook - 29th June 2008,

"There is no way to reset the Bios on the new Latitudes. Removing the power and PRAM battery does nothing. Everything in the Bios is contained in the EPROM flash chip and keyboard ROM chip. The E series uses a chip that cannot be reset by jumpers either."

Next plan of attack is to take;
1) Drivers license, or some other valid form of identification
2) Proof of purchase
3) Credit Card
4) Laptop

,down to nearest Dell authorized repair shop, and have the resident tech obtain the Master Password from Dell.

The Master Password will be used to either;
A) Create a new password
B) Eliminate the password

Tech keeps the Master Password.

Hello.

It sounds like you're stuck at the BIOS password. The easiest way to get around this is to disassemble the casing of your laptop, and find the small battery connected to the motherboard - this battery powers the internal CMOS memory when the laptop is turned off, and removing and replacing it will clear the CMOS settings, and thus, clear the password. Upon booting up, you will need to re-enter your CMOS information before you are able to use your laptop.


I hope you found this helpful.

Sincerely,

Frankie.

Advent 7109a bios password


I cannnot claim ownership of this information:

found on:
http://www.tech-faq.com/dell-bios-password.shtml

Christophe Grenier has written a program that will calculate the master BIOS password for Dell Latitudes from the Service Tag number. That program is available at http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~skynet/zips/latitude.exe.
If you cannot boot your Latitude to run this program, you can get the master password for your Dell by calling Dell Technical Support at (800)624-9896.
Dell Technical Support will request the Service Tag and Express Service Code from the bottom of your Latitude.
If you were not the original owner of the Latitude, Dell will transfer registration of the used Latitude from the original owner with only the Service Tag and Express Service Code from the tag on the laptop.
To transfer the registration of a used Dell Latitude, fill out the Transfer of Ownership form on Dell's web site.

Dell latitude d820 can't get intothe bios set up screen


The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory which is attached to the motherboard. If you remove this battery, all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine.

Hope you find this information usefull.
your feedback is appreciated.
