    Actually, is it a BIOS password or a user password? Can you get your computer started up, just not able to change the BIOS settings, or can you never even get to the Windows desktop? When do you need to enter the password, like right after startup, or after Windows boots?
    hope this makes sense now :)

    I dont think opening a computer would bypass the BIOS ;)

    You can easily remove the password by moving the appropriate jumper on the system board to the alternate setting and then replacing it back to the normal setting.

    Also remove the CMOS battery for one minute then reinstall it. Be sure to update the system clock (date & time).

    Removing the cmos battery won`t clear the bios password. That`s because Dell laptops bios passwords are stored on an Eeprom chip.

    broker01: You can find lots of info for bios password removal on Paragons website HERE.

    BTW: Hello and wwelcome to Techspot. :wave: :wave:
