Hi all;

My Alienware M14 has developed and issue where I cannot get into the BIOS. I hit F2 on start, enter the password and get this, along with text in top left of screen that says "SerialNumberLen1"

The only option that I have is to reboot into Windows - which works fine.

Is there a way to wipe the passwords and or reset the BIOS / Setup somehow?

Thanks!

Resolved - CMOS battery had sub-optimal voltage. Replaced, BIOS recovered without password or signs of corruption
