  1. Greetings,

    Computer- Dell Inspiron 8100
    Problem- Admin Bios Password

    I have tried numoerous things, and in the end seems eeprom is only way to reset this.

    I looked and looked, it says under motherboard, yet I never found a "24OC" 4 legged chip on the board to reset.

    This cpu is 7 yrs old.

    So far no luck fixing this one or my Toshiba and have both been reduced to eeprom reset as only viable option.
