How dow you reset Admin password in Setup Utility/BIOS on a dell Dimension 5150
Posted on 2011-09-21
I have a computer that fail bootup because it is getting a keyboard failure. I know to go into the bios and change it to not report keyboard errors on bootup however, the system is locked and the owner does not know the admin password. There is no system password. I have tried resetting the password to blank using The Ultimate BootCD in which it tells me that it has reset it to blank. I have also used Spotmau that has a similar feature that resets passwords to blank. But none of these have worked. I go back into the bios and the system is still locked. Any suggestions on how to unlock. Oh and I also took out the CMOS battery to see if that might work. Nope, no go.
