Bios Password issue

I have old an old Dell inspiron n5110 15r laptop which i bought in 2011 , however in 2016 i stopped using coz i bought a new dell XPS laptop .MY nephew needed a working laptop for his university so i gave him my old laptop but I totally forgot the bios admin password on that laptop .I can still boot to windows but I can't change bios setup because i forgot the admin password of the bios. I want to install windows 10 on it via usb but I am locked out of bios set up page because I forgot admin password .Any help would be appreciated

So what your going to want to do is try to factory reset it so take any data you don't want gone off of it first.

here's what your going to want to do

  1. Turn on the computer, after the Dell Logo appears and then disappears repeatedly press the <F8> key until you see the Advanced Boot Options menu.
  2. From the Advanced Boot Options highlight Repair Your Computer with the arrow keys and press <ENTER>.
  3. Click ‘Next’ and login to your administrator account on the computer. The administrator account is the account created the first time the computer was turned on.
  4. Click ‘Dell Factory Image Recovery and DataSafe options’ and follow the prompts provided.

Those are my thoughts.

If you could give some feedback that would be great thanks!
