    Default Laptop BIOS password help

    Dell Latitude CP M233ST
    Servicetag DPGVC

    Anybody know of anyone who can remove these cheaply or preferably for free?
    Tried Dell, they can't transfer ownership into my name.
    BTW, it's not hot.

    Cheers lads and lasses, there's a pint in it for whoever can sort it.

    *blink* never knew you could just do that. On my Dell you would have to take the entire thing to pieces as the only thing you can see on the board is the memory slots.

    Try YMZVTE7E

    Does that work?

    Try uppercase / lowercase as that should be your master password......
