Optiplex GX270 BIOS Password Clearing

Hello,
I inherited an Optiplex GX270 with a BIOS/Bootup password. I removed the battery on the system board but to no avail. I need to go into BIOS and also to boot Windows but both need this stupid password, which I unfortunately don't have and no one seems to know (that's how I ended up with this "gift").

gtstylee,

Welcome to the Dell Community Forums.

There is a jumper on the main board just to the left of the main power connector that is marked PSWD. You remove this jumper to clear the system BIOS password.

I would add to Elsbeth's reply that you should unplug the system from AC power before doing the jumper password reset. Sometimes the password will not clear if power is on the system when the jumper is pulled.
