Question about Dell Dimension Computers & Internet
You can change it but not 'remove' it. Simplest is to use '00000' as the default password.
1 Shut down your computer.
2 Press the power button on your computer. While it is booting, press F2 repeatedly (do not just hold it down) until you arrive at a system screen showing a series of
options. This screen is called the BIOS Setup.
