I recently purchased a Dell C840 laptop. This laptop was originally purchased from a corporate environment and the user at that time enabled the administrator password feature in the BIOS. Without this password the configure setup is disabled, which means that the boot order can not be modified. I purchased and changed out the CMOS battery with a brand new one, hoping that by doing this it would reset the chip containing the password information. This did not solve the issue. While I have experienced no limitations on operating the laptop, I would like to reset the password. Is there a painless way to do this? I have zero experience dealing with the BIOS. Thanks.
