Dell bios reset (not password)
I have a Dell Inspiron 1000. I have no password guard or security set to it.

I want to RESET my BIOS configuration completely, but my Dell will not let me enter into the BIOS set up screen (I was in there yesterday and must have disabled or enabled something in the boot menu that is making me pay).

I have tried powering off, battery and cable out, pressing power for a minute while these are out, then commands like F2, F12, Alt F, Alt E, Ctrl Alt D, but nothing - it simply stays on the initial Dell screen and does not move anywhere no matter what is pressed.

Am I missing a secret set of buttons? Or do I need to perform mech surgery on some part of my Dell? If so, how?
please i have a similar problem as type on my dell dimention pc.
