Usually, you can remove the CMOS battery, unplug power from the machine, and press the power button. wait 10 minutes, replace the cmos battery and power cord, then start the machine. that works for about 90% of any pc out there. If that should fail, then look at the system board for a jumper that says "Clear CMOS" (it may also be a button). In order to be more helpful I would need to know the exact model of that xps.

Need BIOS Master password


you can remove this password by removing the bios battery. remove the cap where the ram goes... and you will have very easy access to the board. unplog the cable that goes from the bios battery to the board (make sure the pc is off and main battery is out.) plug back in the cable and boot your pc.

My Dell XPS 400 PC will not Boot up past the "System password"


Both the system password and the BIOS password are set in the BIOS CMOS. You need to clear the CMOS.

The online Dell service manual for the XPS 400 provides a clear and detailed procedure for clearing the CMOS. It's just a matter of moving some jumpers around:

If you are not used to working inside computers, start with "Removing the computer cover", then go to "System Setup" and click on "Clearing Forgotten Passwords".

Another method is to unplug the power cord and remove the CMOS battery for a 1/2 hour or so. For details on how to do that, try this website:
