Since you mean the bios password, you can do this. Unplug from the power your desktop. Open the case and locate a small round battery on the motherboard that looks like this:
i have a dell dimension - 957f76c.jpg
Eject this battery from its place. Push the power switch a few times (without power cable connected). The system will not boot but the capacitors will discharge. Wait for a couple of minutes. Place the battery back to the original place and start up the pc. The password must be gone. A good idea is to check the rest of the settings by entering the bios settings, or even better to load the preset settings (factory defaults) and make any changes as you wish (boot order, time, date etc). In case of not working post me a reply because on some cases a jumper connection setting is also needed (temporary) but since you don't specify your Dell I don't know your case.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

I need password for bios to dell dimension 3100 desktop?


marwan_vaqub,
Dell does not supply bios passwords for Desktop systems. You would have to change the motherboard jumpers to clear the bios password. For help to clear the password please contact Dell Support for system ownership verification and they will then help you resolve clearing bios password.

Thank You,

Hello Mr. Expert I have a Dell Dimension 3000 desktop. I upgraded to bios to A03. Is it possible to upgrade to a higher version. Thanks,


Hi!

The A03 is for now the latest version for the BIOS of Dell Dimension 3000

And a tip for you: upgrading bios is only necessary when real issues occure and the computer doesn't work properly.

Please let me know if it helped


Best regards!

Hi there I have a dell keyboard that came with my dell dimension 1100. A small issue is the fact that when the system boots up the default is numbers lock OFF. My preference is numbers lock ON - any chance...


I know Dell's bios is slightly different but on normal PC's the option can be turned on in the Bios settings. It's worth looking in the to see if it applies in Dell's case also

Dell Dimension 8200 Processor


hi, i also hav a dimensions 8200 which i recently uprgaded to a 2.8gh, but i discovered there were two versions of this system one which supports a 400FSB and the other 533FSB, these can determine the speed of ur cpu. Like you, I havent been able to unlock my clock speeds in the bios but i think you should be able to get more from ur new cpu by updating ur bios version to A09. check the dell site for more info on how to do this.
