Hello there!

You may reset the bios password. Just follow these easy steps.

1. Remove the case to look at the motherboard, so we can try resetting the CMOS battery. This battery looks a shiny little disk the size of a nickel. Pry the battery free gently, and reinsert the battery after 10 minutes. If this worked and you don't see the password prompt, you don't need any more steps; however, the problem is fixed. In my experience, two or more additional steps might be necessary depending on the make of the BIOS. Unfortunately, they don't all respond to the same tricks.

2. Next, now that the case is already removed, locate the jumpers near the edge of the board or near the CPU or the CMOS battery. Once located, find the label that will say clear CMOS, or clear password, etc. Place the jumper over the pins and boot. If this works, no more steps are needed.

If you need further assistance, please let me know.

Regards,
fossildude

If i need to reinstall a windows bios to an inspirion 1720 do i have to reinstall vista or can i install windows 7


Wipe the hard drive and do the OS install. If your unit came with Vista and you install Win 7 there may be some driver incompatibility. Check that out to be on safe side.

Dell bios system password


If you have a BIOS password on "your" laptop, you have a very nice paperweight. The newer Dell laptops are no longer BIOS crackable like the older C and D series Dells were.

I can't access my dell inspirion b130 notebook because the bios is pasworded


Please remove the battery on the motherboard. For this you will have to remove the plates that are there on the bottom of the laptop. Remove them one by one to locate the battery. It is a button cell about one inch in diameter. Remove it for a minute or so and then replace it. Replace the cover and screw it up tight. And do not pass words in future as we all tend to forget them sooner or later.
