Question about Dell XPS M1330 Laptop
There are two ways you can restore the CMOS/BIOS back to the factory default.
First, turn off the laptop and remove the BIOS battery for 15 mins.
Insert the BIOS battery back again and go into the BIOS configuration to set the Date and Time etc.
Second, go into the BIOS configuration press the f1 or F2 or F10 key (not sure which key for your model DELL). When you get into the BIOS then there is a setting to restore the BIOS to the default, then save setting and exit.

Well from what I have read in your description of the problem stated, there is no way to do this without replacing your hard drive. If you cannot remember or find your password for Boot of the Computer then you really have no choice, Or you can take the other way too and thats what you choose not to do and that's call Dell Custoemr Service and pay for warranty or a In-Service for your Dell M1330. There is really no getting around that, realistically also considering the fact that it appears to be a laptop it's going to be really difficult for someone to access the hard drive to replace the hard drive, So that really eliminates to one option and that is paying for a warranty with Dell or taking it to Geek Squad at your local Best Buy Retail Store...The cons of that take to a local retail store like Best Buy would be having to purchase a whole new operating system, paying for an agent to install new hard drive, reinstalling operating system, and the biggest part is will Dell now provide you drivers for your computer usually that will depend upon whether you get the Operating System that came with the Dell XPS M1330, if you choose to down-grade then you more than likely will be not elgible for Driver updates from Dell and will have to manually go to the manufactors and retrieve them one-by-one.
