    Not a desktop.

    The method you describe WILL work for most desktop motherboards.

    It WILL NOT work for most notebook computers.

    The members of TechRepublic - A Resource for IT Professionals, will not assist anyone in the recovery of lost passwords. You may have a legitimate reason to recover a password. However, we cannot verify your motives and will therefore not assist anyone in what may be an attempt at gaining unauthorized access to a computer system. Due to the open nature of this forum, any assistance given to help circumvent security measures, even for legitimate purposes, would be available for unscrupulous individuals to use for illegitimate purposes. This is a risk that we the members of TechRepublic will not take. Please do not ask questions of this nature on TechRepublic.

    If you have a legitimate need to circumvent a password scheme, please contact the vendor for the software / hardware and request their assistance. E.g. Windows XP password recovery issues should be taken up with Microsoft's technical support, Phoenix BIOS password recovery issues should be taken up with Phoenix Technologies, etc..

    So you need to take this to an Authorized Dell Service Agent prove that you are in fact the Authorized owner of it and that you didn't buy a stolen NB off E Bay and they will clear it for you.

    Of course if it is stolen they will report it to the Police and you can expect a visit and a charge of Receiving Stolen Propriety.

    Of course if the seller was Legit they will give you the password if you ask for it.

    The reason that you can not find a BIOS Battery is because there isn't one fitted NB Makers use what is called Smart Socket Technology these days and this is effectively part of the M'Board and takes about 5 years + to discharge. Buying another M'Board will solve the problem quite nicely though.

    Aside from the fact that no one on this forum will tell you how to defeat or otherwise circumvent passwords as a matter of TechRepublic policy, there is ONLY one way to do this. Call Dell and get them to give you the master password for that particular computer. You may try a thousand other solutions provided by a thousand other people. Boils down to this. Yo can not simply remove the current. The password resides on a non-volatile chip and will remain there forever without current. Now, Dell is not going to do jack for you if the computer is not registered by them to you as the purchaser or at very least having had a change of ownership put it. Basically, you got burned. Use paypal to file a grievance and let your feedback reflect the truth. ALWAYS use paypal on ebay. A purchase there without use of paypal is money risked as wasted.
