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, 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!
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.
