Disconnect the battery, unplug it, then open it up. There should be a small round battery called the CMOS battery somewhere in there. Pull that out. Then plug your computer in and boot it up without the CMOS battery. It should say password disabled. Turn it off, disconnect it, put it back together, and you're good to go. This only works if its the bios password that you forgot.

    700 m bios password

    BIOS passwords can be reset in two ways:

    1. using software 2. using hardware.

    I would first try resetting using software, here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

    !BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
    You can download it here:

    To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

    In case of your Dell laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

    Forgot the system password. This not the administrator password for the vista side but the bios system. Is thee a way to reset it or will I need to reinstall the original software.

    You can either short the "Clear CMOS" jumper, or pop the CMOS battery out. Everything will reset back to factory state - the only effect on windows ill be the date change.
