Question about Dell XPS M1330 Notebook
Resetting the BIOS password for a laptop can be difficult. A typical way to reset the BIOS password is to remove the CMOS battery from inside the computer. By removing the CMOS battery, a small battery inside the computer that looks like a watch battery...it should clear out the password. Often times with a laptop though, the CMOS battery might not be easily accessible.
I have done this before by unscrewing the bottom or back of the laptop, and then looking for the battery. You remove the battery for lets say 5 minutes, and let the laptop sit. Then carefully put the battery back in, and reboot the laptop, and see if BIOS password is gone.
I would recommend letting someone from a local PC repair place try this, as it can be a delicate procedure. Otherwise you need to follow up directly with Dell and probably send it off to them.
Alternately, you could try and take main the battery out of the laptop to try and reset it. I'm not sure though this would clear a BIOS password.
Hope this helps.
