You'll have to remove the the RTC clock battery to reset the BIOS, it's located on your motherboard. It's usually a coin-sized metallic thingy placed in a holder.

Unplug the power cord, remove the battery and push the frontside power button a couple of times to bleed it, then leave it for 5 minutes. Then replug it and start it up without the battery and check that it's reset (i.e. you should now be able to enter the BIOS hassle free).
If it's not the case, reboot the computer and repeat.

Turn it off and unplug it again and put the RTC battery back in place, and don't forget to set the time and date since it's now reset.

Default password bios


Unfortunately, there are no default bios passwords that Dell puts into the system. If you need to reset the password please contact Dell Support. They will verify system ownership and then provide you with information on resetting the password.

Cant log into laptop with my amidd password

if you are getting prompt, "This computer <Service tag number>-595B is password protected ..... you'll need to call Dell technical support to get the master password generated to clear the message. There is no hardware way to clear the password short of replacing the motherboard. Same applies for a BIOS level Hard Drive Password.

I forget the BIos password and I cannot run my laptop.Because my laptop wants the bios password PLz help me now

For this you need to change the bios password which can be done in few following ways:
1. If you can handle opening your hardware then you should remove the CMOS battery from your system(attempt only if you are hardware expert) and then re-insert it....your bios password has been removed and problem thus solved.....make sure while doing it every thing including power supply, any usb device should not be connected to the system....
2.Otherwise the backdoor password for your Dell system is "Dell"(without qoutes)...
There is no other mechanism for resetting your bios password in Dell....
Thank you...

I locked my pc with bios password .Now ,after longtime,i forget it ,Plz help me to unlock my pc is dell gx270

Switch off your computer and remove the power cord from socket. You'll have to open the computer case, locate a battery on the motherboard - usually a lithium battey looking something like this:

Carefully remove it from it's holder and wait, say, 10 minutes. Reinsert the battery, and power up the computer. It should have lost all the setup settings, along with the password.
Go to setup (usually pressing F2 on start) and load default setup values using a corresponding option in the menu.
