The Precision line of computers by Dell are high-performance workstations designed for business use. Each Dell Precision computer is equipped with a basic input/output system, or BIOS, utility that you can use to configure a wide array of hardware settings. Password-protecting the BIOS prevents unauthorised users from making changes. Reset the password often to help keep it secure.
