Reset BIOS to the system defaults

  • I don't see a command to reset the BIOS to defaults. I am hoping I am missing it. --cmosdefaults does not seem to do it. Please let me know if there is a way to do this.
  • OK. I'll check with the CCTK team.
  • The Dev team says that there isn't a "reset BIOS defaults" option in the current version of CCTK 2.0. But they will look at adding it into a future release.
  • 1. please press F2 into the BIOS setting menu during post,
    2. press "ALT+F" to restore factory default
    3. press "ESC" and save the change
  • cool thanks ,.
  • I have a new E6320 and when I set up my fingerprint reader it asks me to sign in pre-boot and during the Windows load. I can sign in to both with my fingerprint, and I can sign in to Windows with either my fingerprint or my Windows password, but when I try to make any changes in the Dell Access application it asks for my pre-boot password. I never set one that I know of it and it won't take my Windows password. Is there a default password or someway to change the pre-boot password?
