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?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
