Reset the CMOS by unplugging your Optiplex from the power cable & removing the CMOS battery.
The CMOS battery is just a larger "watch battery" about the size of a nickel. Remove it for a few seconds, put it back in & power it back up. This will reset the BIOS password & restore all the BISO settings to default however.

D830 BIOS admin password


In the future this might help:

BIOS passwords can be reset or removed in two ways:

1. using software 2. using hardware.

I would first try resetting or removing using software, here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
You can download it here:

Password


Jim,

As stated you are talking about two different passwords. Bios password would be at the begining of boot up and accessing the bios from hitting F2 or DEL or some key combo during boot.

The windows password would be needed when you attempt to log onto your computer. This screen will have the windows logo and an icon for the user name.

You said it brings up Admin and password, I assume that you are looking at the windows login screen with the admin name requesting a password to log on.
