How to reset BIOS password?

Hi Friends,

 

I have a DELL inspiron 15 (N5010) laptop. Few days back I set BIOS password. Unexpectedly I forgot the password. While going to BIOS, my laptop is asking for password. I tried many times but unable to enter correct password. Can any one please tell me how to proceed further for resetting the password?

Thanks in advance...

The password is stored in a flash EEPROM on the motherboard, both the motherboard and hard drive, should be replaced.

Best to post this in the Customer Care Forum, here:

The only way to have this remedied, is to call Dell, pay the service charge and prove ownership to obtain an override password.

The password is stored in a flash EEPROM on the motherboard, you could replace both the motherboard and hard drive.

Hello.

I just purchased a used Dell XPS 12 Convertible. Unfortunately It has a BIOS password.

What can I do to remove this? I'd rather not pay $60, or replace the motherboard...

Thanks.
