Dell Latitude config password help

  1. I have a Dell Latitude C810 I enabled the Admin Password in the BIOS. I havent used it in a while and cant remember it. Is there a way to remove the password without performing "surgery" on the chip?

    Hi

    Is it the grey screen at bootup, or can you not change the BIOS settings,

    If its the grey screen then NOPE, unless you can get hold of Rustam and get a password of him..... Rustam comes in occasionally,

    If its the BIOS password, then read the site in my tag...

    Regards

    On the C810, it is possible to short out the pin on the motherboard, once you get a copy of the schematics... then remove the cmos battery and let it sit a week before putting everything back together.
