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...

Hi there,

While changing some options in my BIOS (Studio XPS 1645) I noticed that the User Password is showing as [Locked]

I bought the laptop from a Dell Refurbisher about 3 years ago, and have only just noticed the user password being locked!

There is no supervisor password set, so I am able to make the changes I require, but was just wondering if I can reset the user password as I have supervisor access?

Cheers,

Esky.

It's always handy to include the version of Windows that's being used.

See if the following can help:
