Pretty sure I know the answer to this but thought I would try anyway:  One of our clients locked out their Dell E5400 using ETS.  We have the BIOS password, but the user forgot (or possibly created with a typo) their ETS password.  Anyway to bypass or reset this other than a full format?

ok, apparently there is no way to hack it. before you format, see if you can guess the real password based on what the user wanted to put in.
