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...

I  had to send my laptop back to Dell to replace the motherboard.  If your laptop is still under warranty you should contact Dell support for help.

If you can't contact the original owner, you'll need to replace the mainboard.

Hi, I have a Dell Latitude E6510.  When I turn on the machine, it requires me to input a password to get to the OS login screen.  I enter the password and all is fine.  The issue is that I need to remove this feature and deploy the workstation to someone else in the company.  When I go into the BIOS setup, all the password options say "Not Set".  Even when I restore the BIOS to factory default, I am still prompted to enter a password prior to getting to the OS login screen. Please help!

Hi Liam,

Once you enter the BIOS password, instead of pressing the Enter key alone, press the key combination of 'Ctrl+Enter' keys. Check if this makes any difference in disabling the password or not.

Reply with the results, I'll be happy to assist you further.
