Hello there!

A BIOS password is a protection measure that can be used to stop someone powering up a computer system or making changes in some of the computers most sensitive areas. Many big name computer manufacturers such as Dell and HP lock the customers out of this area because they don't want the customer changing anything and potentially damaging the machine (which the manufacturer may have to warranty). However, when someone like a computer technician or hardware enthusiast needs to make some hardware changes to the computer, they will need to access the BIOS. Here are some methods to bypass or remove a BIOS password.

NOTE: Do not try to guess the password on a passworded Hard Drive. 3 wrong guesses will often result in the information on the hard drive being lost forever.

How to Bypass or Remove a BIOS Password by Removing the CMOS Battery:
The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOS battery. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when it is turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by small battery inside the computer called a CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, the computer will forget alot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password. This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experienced working with laptop hardware.

Anyway, open up the computer case using a screw driver and locate the flat, circular and metallic CMOS battery. It should look something like the picture to the right. Some computers have this part standing upright.

Once you have located it, observe how the latches are holding it. There are many different ways to remove a CMOS battery but the most common way on newer computers can be seen in the picture below.

Make sure to power down the computer, unplug the power cables and unplug any USB devices if they are powered. The computer must not be able to get power from anywhere for this to work. Take out the CMOS battery and wait 10 - 25 minutes before putting it back in. The reason for this wait is because the computer can still store power in its capacitors even though everything is unplugged. The waiting period allows enough time for them to discharge.

Plug everything back in, power up the computer and enter the BIOS again. If everything went well there should be no more password. In some cases, if you get weird error messages during bootup now, you will need to goto "Load BIOS Defaults" in BIOS and save the changes to fix them.

Hope it helps,

Haw can i clear the bios password in a dell inspiron 8100 service tag 5nppy01


one way is to remove the cmos battery inside the laptop for 15 minutes. if you take off the panels on the bottom, you should find a watch battery inside, that keeps the time and bios settings. removing the battery will reset the BIOS to factory, some BIOSes do retain the passwords though but that depends on the brand and model.

Which key are they talking about when they say hit the del key


DEL is Delete. Usually found in a cluster with Insert, Home, End, Page Up and Page Down. With the Dell 6400 E1505, these are on the upper right hand side of the keyboard. (The "half" with the two rows of keys instead of 1 row of function keys.)

I hope this helps.

I dont know my dell inspiron e1505 admin password, how to unlock it ... in the system recovery options


The only way to reset the Admin password is through SAM database, first you need to create a USB bootable drive and download password reset program (it's DOS base) after you've created a USB bootable drive put the password reset program there and boot your PC to USB and type the password reset program name, and you are ready to reset the administrator password.
