Greetings from Jersey,
I recently was given a Dell Inspiron 1012 mini laptop. The bios password is locked on it. Does anyone know how I can reset or remove it. I was told that I could take it apart and change some jumpers on the motherboard. I don't know what it looks like. Can anyone help me.
Regards,

Special

Hi

you can remove the password by desoldering 24c02 chip and resolder a new chip instead
