bios password removal

  howard64 18 Jun 11

I have been asked to get the photos off a Dell Inspiron 2500 laptop. I need to remove the bios password on it, the owner died and his wife would like the photos saved. It is fairly old! in terms of laptops, as it is running windows me and only has 128mb of ram. Does anyone know how to remove this password? and where I can get a manual showing the location of ram and the cmos battery. Thanks in advance.

Simplest thing to do would be to remove the Dell laptop harddrive and connect it via a caddy,something like this USB Caddy to another PC and copy the files you want. If you go to this page Dell scroll down to PDF documents: Solutions Guide, you will find on page 72 details of how to remove the harddrive.

You might try the Dell backdoor password which is #Dell

Resetting password by clearing CMOS may not work on laptop.

Ultimate Boot CD has some BIOS/CMOS Tools.

Or Hiren's
