I have an Inspiron 5100 that I'm selling to a friend and want to remove the BIOS and harddrive password I set on it. I know the passwords. I can't remember the keystroke to get into the BIOS. I tried hitting F2 alot after keying them but it immediately goes to the Windows logo.
So my questions are
1. How or Can I get into the BIOS after keying the passwords? Since theres where I set them, I'm hoping thats where I can remove them.
2. If not, is there any other way to do it from the Windows interface, without having to pull hardware?
F2 is the trip to get into the BIOS. Press it immediately at powerup. To remove the password, enter the original, and then change it to a blank password and save.
THANK YOU! You made my day much better.
