Hi there all. Am over at a mates in Palmy. He has been made redundant when they closed the Palmy branch and he has aquired all the office gear including a Dell Latitude D610 laptop which has some things password protected in the bios. Is there anyway of defaulting the bios to get rid of them.

Some of these things are protected by a chip. So, if there's no way of removing it in the BIOS, you'll have to ask whoever put it there to tell you what the password is

Trouble is it is about 5 years old and acquired when the company was under the previous owner being Tyco so unless the paper work has been done it might not be easy.

It worked a treat but it was a little hard to decide which way they were looking at it when they said the three left pins.
