Hi...
Answers to your questions

Yes of course you can.
your problems often faced by some users.
to cleanse the system password on the bios, you just need to remove the c mos battery in the laptop and let a few minutes longer better. the c mos battery in there remove all the settings in the bios will revert to the default. after you install the c mos battery and then turn on the computer,
you need to set time and date to the latest time
(You will see no need to enter the password on the bios setup, it means that your password was successfully reset)
and then save these settings and let it restart your computer. when your computer is restarted it will return to normal without the password password.

regards

Welcome to Fixya

Common procedure in resetting the password is by resetting the motherboard by reseating the CMOS battery. You need to access you motherbard and locate the circular silver metallic object on the motherboard. This is much bigger in size compared to a wristwatch battery. CAREFULLY remove the CMOS battery, avoid touching it with your fingers, and leave it out for about 120 seconds. This will flush the CMOS memory which stores the BIOS password and all other configuration. Put the the battery back in and turn on the computer.

Other procedure is the jumper reset. Some, but not all, motherboard manufacturers provide a set of three jumpers on their motherboards that provide you with the ability to clear the Bios/CMOS settings, thereby allowing them to be reset. For the most part this is used when the Bios/CMOS data becomes scrambled and you need to clear the Bios/CMOS in order to return the computer to a functional state. This same procedure, however, can be used to clear passwords from the Bios/CMOS setup. Typically a jumper will be found across pins #1 and #2 as the default position, and by shutting the computer down, unplugging the power cord and then moving the jumper so that it is across pins #2 and #3 will clear the Bios/CMOS settings.

If procedures above has been done and yet you are getting same results. Its time to call you manufacturer and have the motherboard re-flushed or re-imaged.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Dell latitude d630 forgot bios password


Go to Dell support and download the latest BIOS revision. When you flash the bios it should wipe out the password. The second option is not as appealing.... open up the laptop and remove the CMOS battery for 30 seconds. This is much easier on a desktop, but a proven solution if there is no other way.

Dell latitude c610 primary or administraitor password unlock


I believe I can help you. Is this a Windows password after it boots up, or is this a bios power on password before it boots? The bios password on a Dell is generally on a white screen when it's first powered. Get back to me, and I'll get you thought this.
