Part 2: How to Reset a Dell Laptop Bios Password?
Here I summarize 3 effective methods to reset Dell bios password. Details are as follows:
Method 1: Reset Dell Laptop Bios Password by Removing CMOS Battery
This is the easiest way to help you out of the problem. In fact there is a CMOS battery in the Dell laptop which turns on all the time. Because the laptop needs to keep the settings and the time whenever it is turned on or off. So if we pull out the battery, the laptop will forget its settings include a bios password. Here is how to proceed:
Step 1: Take out the CMOS battery.
Step 2: After 10-25 minutes, plug everything back in, power up the computer and enter the BIOS again. If everything goes well the password will be gone.
Note: Don’t use this method unless you are fairly experienced with laptop hardware. Make sure to power down the computer, unplug the power cables and unplug any USB devices if they are powered. The computer must not be able to get power from anywhere for this to work.
Method 2: Remove Dell Bios Password with Motherboard Jumper
This method is a bit difficult because you need to make it clear that where the Jumper lies. In fact, the location of the jumper is importantly related to the motherboard brand. You can refer to then motherboard manual to find it. When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Note: Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.
Method 3: Perform the Process of Dell Bios Password Reset with MS DOS Command
Provided that you can get into the your Dell laptop, then you can go on with the next steps:
Step 1: Open Command Prompt from Programs menu and type in following commands according to the sequence below: Debug >>o 70 2E>>o 71 FF
Step 2: After finish the command prompt please choose quit.
Step 3: Restart your system. You are supposed to reset the CMOS Settings along with the BIOS password successfully.
Note: The first character in the above commands is English alphabet “o” and not the number “0”.
