Removing BIOS Password: Dell inspiron 8100

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
OK, at my new job we got 50 laptops from the military. Dell Inspiron 8100. THey have admin passwords, so we can't do anything with them! Any suggestions? Would taking the CMOS battery out reset this? Let me know if you have any experience with this.

Ah that's almost impossible. There is a bypass by inserting a excact password, but i reckon they aren't able to be done on laptops.

removing the cmos battery and switching the jumper should work as this reverts all bios data back to the defaults
