I have a DELL GX270 desktop PC and one of our old engineers placed a password on the Bios and forgot it.

I have tried a couple of Bios erasing methods such as;

-      Hiren's BootCD 9.6, Bios cracking tools
-      Removing the Bios battery

And I still cant erase the password in the Bios! Ive never had a problem like this before with a computer and there isnt a jumper short on the motherboard to reset the Bios either.

Any ideas?
