Generic comment:

Open all the cocmpartments on the bottom until you find it ... it will be smaller than a dime and have two wires going from it to a little white or red plug (Ok, it may be black). Look under the memory first.

Safe Computer procedures MUST BE USED. Ground yourself before you touch any components.

I hope this helps you

Hi i am using Dell inspiron 1545 laptop. I unable toenter in Bios. how to break administrator password in dell inspiron 1545 laptop


there is no default password for that you will need to open up the laptop and remove the cmos battery inside to bring the bios back to its factory settings (without password). sometimes tho dell will add password , dell , or admin as a password. but thats usually for laptops and pcs they sell in bulk to businesses
PLEASE let me know if this helped and sorry for the bad news about having to open up the laptop

Need to unlock bios password on dell laptop, have service tag # and ends in 59b


Hi,

If you have loast the password, to reset the BIOS password you need to remove temporarily the CMOS battery , so to reset BIOS settings.

Some model may be using NV Ram, in that case removing the battery is not enough.

The battery is located on the lower side on the motherboard.

On many DELL models the battery can be accessed from the side of DVD slot, battery slot, or RAM slot, without disassemblying the laptop.

On some model you may need complete disassembly (eg. Dell Le series).

The battery looks like a couple of coin batteries wrapped in plastic.

Before disassemblying or removing covers, always unplug adapter and remove battery.

On Dell Inspiron 8500 the battery can be accessed from a side , after removing the primary battery.

I think Dell 8500 can be set to use NV Ram to store the password.
In this case the problem cannot be solved removing primary battery, then accessing and removing CMOS battery for few minutes.

If you still cannot reset you have two way out.

Disassemble completely and access the NVRAM microswitch, or contact Dell and get master password.

You can also try one of this standard Dell factory CMOS password:

ALFAROME
BIOSTAR
biostar
biosstar
CMOS
cmos
LKWPETER
lkwpeter
setup
SETUP
Syxz
Wodj
