CMOS Password reset

  1. Hello Everyone,

    I have a Dell Latitude CPI-A series laptop. I am locked out the screen says. This computer system (number) is protected by a password authentication system. You cannot access the data on this machine without the password, then the system shuts off.

    I tried to reload, the O.S, and tried to boot from a prompt, can get to that.
    Can you help?

    Thanks,

    Computertech07
