Bios info on hard drive

\015 Is it possible for me to retrieve bios password from the hard drive\015

Answers :

The BIOS password is not stored in the hard drive.
\015\012Try Dell as the password first.
\015\012The BIOS password could be stored in the BIOS chip or an an EEPROM chip.
\015\012If the password is stored in the BIOS chip, you can restore the BIOS back to the default setting and remove the password by removing the BIOS battery for 1/2 + hour, insert the battery and go into the BIOS configuration to set the Date & Time.
\015\012If the password is stored on the EEPROM chip, there are no backdoor passwords available.
