    My girlfriend tried to get all fancy and change the BIOS password for the laptop I bought her and she can't remember the combination of numbers/letters she used. It's a Dell Latitude System #8PM30P1-2A7B I've tried Dogberts tool but it doesn't seem to give the correct info. Can anyone help me with this? Thank you so much in advance. o_O

    I've tried there too, but it doesn't seem to be working. I'm completely stumped.

    Nevermind that works. I was just entering the entire string instead of just the end portion. Thanks!

    See here; you need to do a forceful bios downgrade or contact Dell support.
