Hi this is a laptop and laptops don't mostly have jumpers on the mainboard, often if they do, they are well hidden small flat contacts around the mainboard. What are you attempting to do?

I need a master bios password for a dell 1501


Backdoor Passwords

Many BIOS manufacturers have provided backdoor passwords that can be used to access the BIOS setup in the event you have lost your password. These passwords are case sensitive, so you may wish to try a variety of combinations.

WARNING: Some BIOS configurations will lock you out of the system completely if you type in an incorrect password more than 3 times. Read your manufacturers documentation for the BIOS setting before you begin typing in passwords.

Using the Motherboard "Clear CMOS" Jumper or Dipswitch settings

Many motherboards feature a set of jumpers or dipswitches that will clear the CMOS and wipe all of the custom settings including BIOS passwords. The locations of these jumpers / dipswitches will vary depending on the motherboard manufacturer and ideally you should always refer to the motherboard or computer manufacturers documentation. If the documentation is unavailable, the jumpers/dipswitches can sometimes be found along the edge of the motherboard, next to the CMOS battery, or near the processor. Some manufacturers may label the jumper / dipswitch CLEAR - CLEAR CMOS - CLR - CLRPWD - PASSWD - PASSWORD - PWD. On laptop computers, the dipswitches are usually found under the keyboard or within a compartment at the bottom of the laptop.

Please remember to unplug your PC and use a grounding strip before reaching into your PC and touching the motherboard. Once you locate and rest the jumper switches, turn the computer on and check if the password has been cleared. If it has, turn the computer off and return the jumpers or dipswitches to its original position.
Removing the CMOS Battery

The CMOS settings on most systems are buffered by a small battery that is attached to the motherboard. (It looks like a small watch battery). If you unplug the PC and remove the battery for 10-15 minutes, the CMOS may reset itself and the password should be blank. (Along with any other machine specific settings, so be sure you are familiar with manually reconfiguring the BIOS settings before you do this.) Some manufacturers backup the power to the CMOS chipset by using a capacitor, so if your first attempt fails, leave the battery out (with the system unplugged) for at least 24 hours. Some batteries are actually soldered onto the motherboard making this task more difficult. Unsoldering the battery incorrectly may damage your motherboard and other components, so please don't attempt this if you are inexperienced. Another option may be to remove the CMOS chip from the motherboard for a period of time.

Note: Removing the battery to reset the CMOS will not work for all PC's, and almost all of the newer laptops store their BIOS passwords in a manner which does not require continuous power, so removing the CMOS battery may not work at all. IBM Thinkpad laptops lock the hard drive as well as the BIOS when the supervisor password is set. If you reset the BIOS password, but cannot reset the hard drive password, you may not be able to access the drive and it will remain locked, even if you place it in a new laptop. IBM Thinkpads have special jumper switches on the motherboard, and these should be used to reset the system.
Hope this helps.

Unable to reset bios password - removing coin cell battery had no effect


Then you can try it out by removing the jumper.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password.
The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand.You should read your motherboard
manual to check its location.If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery.
Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS etc.When you find the jumper,look carefully.
There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin.What you need to
do is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin.e.g.if the jumper joins center pin to left pin
then remove it and join center pin to right pin.Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join
the center pin to left pin.Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

Where are the switches on an older motherboard to alter the configuration of the motherboard


Hi,

This will be found right near the CMOS battery

Locate the 3-pin CMOS jumper (RTCRST) on the system board.
Remove the jumper plug from pins 2 and 3.
Place the jumper plug on pins 1 and 2 and wait approximately five seconds.
Replace the jumper plug on pins 2 and 3.

It's probable you're inadvertently touching the touchpad with another part of your hands while you're typing. There's a setting in the touchpad configuration where you can choose to sort of disable the touchpad while typing. Regarding the trouble keys, there are keyboards that come deffective from the factory. The one I'm using this moment has that problem with just two keys, reason why I can still put up with it! If your notebook is still under warranty, call DELL and arrange service for it.
Good luck!

My dell 1501 laptop bios pw i just picked one up from a swap meet i need to get into it any ideas?


Bios master passwords are generated by Dell Tech support 800-624-9896 (there is no manual reset with a jumper like on desktop system) Call Dell, validate you are an authorized user of the system, and they'll give you the password.
