Got a laptop shipped in to the store but did not come with bios password lol... i have taken the battery out of the laptop, cmos battery, and unplugged it for about 10 mins and still no luck, password is still there.

Any ideas how to remove password from a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop?


Thanks...

well... i tried all the methods above but still no luck

unplugged all power & removed the cmos battery over the weekend lol

tried flashing the bios but it wont let me into setup or boot options (F2 & F12 and tried other F keys & del) it just goes like its booting from hdd everytime.

tried to boot from Davids Boot cd just to see if it mabe is going to cd before hdd, but no luck there either....

doesnt have a fdd so i hooked up an external one that goes in usb to see if i could boot from that as well but doesnt work either :-/
