:( Ok, before I get flamed I want to say that this laptop was given to me. That said, the problem is that the bios was pass protected by the previous owner who is now deceased, so I can't ask them what it is unless I call John Edwards. ( Crossing over). It's a Dell Inspiration 7500 with Pheonix bios and I have tried; Taking out the battery and unplugging the ac power supply. Looking for jumpers in every orafice this thing has with a magnifying glass. Backdoor passwords and Madame Cleo. Anybody know how to clear the bios on this thing? Thanks for any help you can give.

As far as I know laptop computers don't have clear cmos jumpers. Your going to have to disconnect the battery from the board to get passed the BIOS...
