There is no jumper -- there rarely are any jumpers inside a laptop.

Enter BIOS SETUP, and choose "Load BIOS defaults".

Dell inspiron 1545 has authentication system password ..tried removing battery cannot get pass it

The aim is to reset the BIOS so that data concerning passwords are cleared out. This is done by moving a jumper on the motherboard.( The biggest challenge is to find it).

Note that: This procedure also resets the BIOS settings. If you have made changes, this manipulation will reset these features to default.
  • Step 1: Turn off your PC and unplug the power cable and open your system unit. Touch the chassis of the casing with a metallic object to discharge static electricity.
  • Step 2: Check the documentation for your motherboard to locate the position of the jumper, that reset the BIOS. If you don't have any manual, look on your motherboard one of the following tag: CLR BIOS, CLEAR BIOS, CLR CMOS, CLEAR CMOS, RESET BIOS or RESET CMOS. It is usually near the CMOS battery on the motherboard.
  • Step 3: Find the jumper on your motherboard reset it. It is usually close to the battery.

If the jumper is on 3-connector pins, place it on the middle and the initially uncovered pins.
Wait for some time and put the jumper in its original position (PIN1-PIN2).
If the jumper is on a 2-connector pins and that it holds on a single pin, place it on both, wait one second and then return it to its original position.
  • Step 4: Power up and start your PC: the password has disappeared.

Locked bios on dell inspiron 6400

Is there any clr cmos written on the board. The motherboards which do not have jumpers come with three point like solder on the board. You have to short first two manually with some wire.
If it is not there then you have to flush the bios with the bios flushing utility.
