Hi, you won't be able to, Dell has put it there to stop people from messing with the bios.
You can phone Dell and they may tell you the password, but you will have to go through some security check to prove that the laptop is yours.

If you know how to take your laptop apart ( not recommended ) you can follw this guide :-
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latc610/sm_en/rsrvbatt.htm#1000202

Disconnecting the battery for a few minutes should clear the bios and return to default settings.

Let me know if this has helped you.

Regards - Anthony

Bios password


if you know the password, then when you go to change it instead of entering a new password just press enter on the keyboard. If you don't know the password try, admin or administration or even the word password.

Bios master password


hey,

I have also try'ed that 4-5 years ago. But don't know if it works on today's motherboards. I removed the battery backup on the motherboard until the memory where cleared.
Also i know on some motherboards you can reset bios configuration, try to search for the motherboard manual to find the best solution.
