Will upgrading the bios firmware on a Latitude D630 delete the bios admin password?

  1. I have a Dell Latitude D630. It has an admin password for the bios. Nothing is locked except for the settings. I can't change any of the settings in the bios. It lets me boot to windows just fine though. My question is, since I don't know that admin password for the bios, if I upgrade the bios firmware, will the admin password be deleted? Since I'm flashing the bios, I would think that all the settings will be lost. Is that the case?

    Didn't you reply here, and say it worked (after the unusual 9th try :confused:) https://www.techspot.com/vb/topic109612-109.html#post747024

    Awfully strange!

    A bios update can't remove passwords. As You Must Know

    Oh and thanks for the extended long Title. I'm thinking this Topic of yours would be best removed? What do you think?
