There is NO G60... perhaps GX60?

there's a jumper that's probably near the CMOS battery, that enables or disables Bios Password. search for Jumper settings, in your models owner's manual.
you can get an owners manual at support.dell.com for exact diagram.

but usually it's easy to find and has pswd printed next to it.

Jumper was nowhere near battery, which threw me off. Thanks for the tip.
