I created a 'system password' through the BIOS/UEFI menu for a Venue 8 tablet, and I've forgotten it (still know my Windows 8 login, no worry there). How would the sys password be reset?
Request you to contact Dell team for the BIOS password either via DellTechCenter in Facebook or @DellCaresPRO on Twitter and they will be able to provide you a BIOS password once the ownership of the system is confirmed.
Do reach back for any query.

Thank you for your response. My tablet is out of warranty, and I'd really like just a brief description of getting it reset, either by opening the tablet cover and flipping motherboard switches, or maybe using a USB drive to boot 'around' it.
But, with the system password set, I cannot even get into UEFI/BIOS anymore like done before with holding down the Win+VolumeDown keys...can you please provide a hint or link to an article on Dell's site here?
