If the password is stored in the BIOS and not on an EEPROM chip then you can remove the BIOS battery and wait for 1/2+ hour before inserting the battery back in. If you don't want to wait then short out the battery contacts on the motherboard. The BIOS settings will now be set to the factory default.
Alternately some laptops allow you to select an alternate boot up device by pressing the F12 key as you power up.

try to remove the cover of your laptop. Then remove the motherboard battery for about 10 min. Put it again and bios should be restarted.

There is no Jumper on a Dell Vostro 1000 to clear the password. You will have to contact Dell Technical Support, Complete a ownership validation to confirm you are an authorized user of the system, then they can provide you with a Master Password to clear the password

If you cannot access the machine after if has been powered up, it is still possible to get past the BIOS password. The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard.
If you remove this battery, all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.
On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove.
If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password.
If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is. If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper. This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.
If all else fails, you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard.
