Answers :

A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
\015\012In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
\015\012Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
\015\012When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
\015\012Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

\015\012B. By Using Software:
\015\012
I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds
\015\012BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool Service: http://www.biospasswordrecovery.com/
If you are dealing with a BIOS level password (Before Windows Loads) an you don't have the password, you'll need to contact Dell Technical Support for a Master Password (There are no jumpers or an hardware manner to bypass the BIOS password).\015\012
\015\012To get a Master Password from Dell, you will need to be able to verify you are an approved system user, then they will assist with the password. (If system is not in warranty, there may be a fee for tech support)
