Re: dell inspiron 1100 bios reset

The BIOS password may be cleared from a Dell by removing the password jumper (PSWD) from the motherboard.

The location of the password jumper on a Dell motherboard

to reset a BIOS password and clear all CMOS settings

* Locate the 3-pin CMOS password reset jumper on the system board.

* Remove the jumper plug from pins 1 and 2.

* Place the jumper plug on pins 2 and 3 and wait for 5 seconds.

* Replace the jumper plug on pins 1 and 2.
now you are done .....turn On you laptop....enjoy.

Re: dell inspiron 1100 bios reset

Most laptop has a security chip on the motherboard.you need either physically remove the chip or contact the mfg for the "master" password. If you are able to boot up off of a cd or floppy
make a Win98SE bootable media "or anything that lets you boot into MS-DOS" and boot off of it.
While the A:\> prompt appears type debug and hit enter.
it will show a "-",type o 70 2E "include the spaces" enter.
Type o 71 ff "include the spaces" and press Enter.
Type q and press Enter.
else you can use manufactures password here i have some collection

Re: dell inspiron 1100 bios reset

The system cannot boot from any media as long as the hard drive is attached. The only way to boot to other media is to remove the hard drive from the system. Then you may go for the OS installation through the CD or a DVD, installation from one of this device would be same as what we does with the installation on Desktop computers, And one more way to recover your data if it crashed using the Live CD.

Re: dell inspiron 1100 bios reset

I am not sure but it depends on model. Usually jumpers are the most common settings on a laptop board and they are available on every model. To remove the bios password many times the jumper settings work. But you can flash the bios also with various third party tools. This tools are easily found on web, which clearly wipes the bios password without much issue.

I've been told that this will erase the entire hdd.
Where do I go to find third party tools that will work in removing the password.

You can try to reset the CMOS battery from the motherboard. Disconnect the computer from the mains supply, open the casing, remove the CMOS battery. Reset the CMOS by using the jumper, replace the jumper to its original position, put back the battery and start the system.
