Reset password on Satellite A100 / A105:

Password types :

Power On Password (pop). this password can be reset by unplugging the cmos battery for a while, and plugging it back in.

Supervisor/bios Password (svp). this requires reading the eeprom chip (8 leg or 14 leg) with an electronic device by using another pc's serial port or by paperclip method if model type available.

Hard Drive Password (hdp). this is usually tied to svp, but not all the time. it requires special software and a library of known manufacturer's password. but can be cracked either recovering the data or wiping the data.

Hi I was wondering if someone can help.
I have a dell d410 with the service tag ending in -595B.
I tried using password.exe but it would not work, their's an administrative password on the computer(bios password) so I can't change any of the reboot settings, I'm completely locked out. I've tried everything.
I'm thinking about short circuiting the eeprom chip on the dell, or replacing the eeprom chip. I really don't know which one is best, or if someone has a password generator or some back door password, or even some technique that has worked. Can someone offer me advice????
Because I read somewhere that when you replace the eeprom chip on dell latitude's when you boot the computer with the new chip the computer explodes, that's suppose to happen because of some type of security measure, Dell has incase labtops are stolen.

Why we don't ask you to run ComboFix from the onset

As stated by the author of ComboFix:

ComboFix is a very powerful tool which when improperly used may render your machine to a doorstop.

We first need to verify if there's any rootkits present and how they could affect our tools. DDS & GMER are preliminary scans. We use their logs to map our strategy for attack.

With these logs we can determine the infections present & decide whether to deploy ComboFix.

A:BIOS password removal

Dwalker. Contact HP and they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password. When talking to the HP rep ask them to escalate your service request. Or download these files. Insert clean USB flash drive. Then run USB Image tool. Choose the flash drive then click on RESTORE. After restore remove flash drive. Insert flash drive into locked laptop and boot. ?If HDD is installed remove before booting.? At C:\OUTPUT   type CD.. ?Then hit enter? Type HPBR   ?Then hit enter? First thing is to save your settings. Select #3 re-program. Press ?S? to save system information. Type HPBR and hit enter. Since your model is not listed select ?SHOTGUN.? After reboot repeat ?SHOTGUN? a second time. Let me know the result so I can update my list. Some instructions here. ?If you cannot boot from USB there are instructions to make a bootable HDD.? More help here. REO I must inform you that these services are not endorsed by HP, and that HP is not responsible for any damage that may arise to your system by using these services. Please be aware that you do this at your own risk.

A:Bios Password Removal

Welcome to TechSpot

Dell BIOS Password Removal thread should have the answers you seek.
Relevancy 64.07%

I have a Toshiba Tecra M11-11M which has been password locked. I have stripped the notebook and removed the BIOS battery for 10 min but the password still remains ie on the screen it still reads PASSWORD- ****.

There is no way to enter the BIOS via any key combination.
There are no markings or letters on the motherboard whatsoever ie: C35-C36 or J12-J13 to short out which would in most cases remove the password and allow access to the BIOS.

Any techies out there with any ideas would be much appreciated.
Some people asking for help with a bios password are not thieves but just forgetful fools.

A:BIOS password removal on Tecra M11-11M

As far as I know Toshiba uses several methods for BIOS password removal. On business machines like Tecra or Portege the method is not the same as on Satellite models.
BIOS battery removal maybe works on desktops but not on mobile machines.

Mobile machines must have better protection due to fact that can be pretty easy stolen and it is very important to prevent fraudulent use.
> Some people asking for help with a bios password are not thieves but just forgetful fools.
That?s correct but you cannot expect that BIOS password removal method will be described on public forum. Contact nearest Toshiba service provider and they will do this for you. All you must do is to show valid bill and prove that you are real owner of this Tecra machine.

Hi Team, Please find my laptop details HP Pavilion Ultrabook 14-b003txModel #:C0P30PASerial #:5CD2384P0P I am facing problem while entering BIOS Administrator password I tried entering my system disabled code in the below sites system disabled code is 51303979 then I got below code  InsydeH2O BIOS (Acer, HP) 44061379  But above code is not working and it is still saying that invalid password.  Could you please help me to resolve this problem asap. Thanks in advance 

A:Bios Administrator password removal

Hi, The unlock code 44061379 is correct for the hash you mention, so try the following. 1.  Shut down the notebook, unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery.  Hold  down the Power button for 30 seconds.  Plug in the AC Adapter ( leave the battery out for the moment ), start the notebook and try entering the code again. 2.  Try entering the code via an external usb keyboard. 3.  If the power on password just appeared out of the blue, it may indicate an issue with the hdd, which can also prevent the unlock code working - remove the drive ( see Page 56 of your Maintenance & Service Guide ) then power on the machine with the hdd absent and try entering the unlock code again. Regards, DP-K

Hi, You can remove the need for a power on password as follows. Shut down the notebook.  Tap away at the esc key as soon as you press the power button to access the Start-up menu and then select f10 to enter the Bios menu.  Use the arrow keys to highlight the Security tab and hit enter.  Use the arrow keys again to highlight power on password and hit enter.  Enter the current password and then for the new password, just leave this blank and hit enter - do the same for the confirmation field.  Press f10, select to save the new settings and hit enter. Regards, DP-K

Hello, We've recently bought a M900Z, but i can't access to bios settings as there is a password locking it.I've tried to remove the battery, to change jumper, but ... the bios dialog box asking me for a password is again and again and again on the screen. ? Is there any possibility to reset this bios password, or do anybody have this password as there is no word about that on user manual.Thanks to all for any information about this

I've got a Thinkpad too...Now for your problem there's suppose to be an option to log into the bios for removal or to change the password... Cause IBM's only got the password set for the Hard Disk which comes after the Power On Self Test [POST]... Hit Access IBM button like mine has or try the classic F1 & Del keys....

Hey TSF guys
I have a problem. This lady asked me to fix her laptop which needed a new keyboard. No problem. I was going to also speed up the system and when i went to go do that, there was the Dell BIOS protection on it. Her laptop wont allow me to enter the OS or even the BIOS settings. When i asked her about this, she said she couldnt remember the password. Is there anyway i can either wipe the HD and the password be gone and I install XP or is there something else i can do? Its a Dell Inspiron 1521 with Vista. Any suggestions?

Hello, I want to install a fresh operating system so I've got it burnt to a DVD (bootable). But when I go to set the boot order to boot from CD/DVD first, I can't change anything because the BIOS is passworded.

This is my computer, it is a Dell Dimension e510, there was talk on other forums about "Master Passwords" that have to be generated by Dell. Unfortunately, since I purchased this computer back in 2007, I don't have a warranty anymore and Dell won't even do live chat?

Should I try to just get through to them via phone or e-mail, or does anyone know how to generate these passwords? (I have the service tag since that's what it seems you need).
Thank you!

A:Help removing Dell BIOS password

Can you get to windows or does it come up with the password straight away?
There are two options I can think of:
1. Open the laptop and remove the CMOS battery for about 20mins and then put it back in, may not do anything but its worth a try.
2. the other option is get the newset BIOS firmware and boot into DOS, if you can, and flash the BIOS, theoreticaly it should wipe the old firmware and give you a fresh start.

No, your problem is not fixable without sending the computer to Dell.
This has been well established on this forum. You will not find the answer here... because there is no answer. The D620 appears to have a problem that only a EEPROM programmer with the proper programming tools, and software, and code books, can fix.

Hi all,
Just received my new D620. However, bios admin password is set, boot order=hard disk only, and good old method with my still ready ide hard disk from paragon's site, that I have used twice with success (great job!) is not anymore applicable: D620 ships now with S-ATA hard disk...
Before investing too much in new hardware/adapter, I really wonder if I could apply the same method, as I have a doubt that a W98 boot disk would be able to "format c: /s" a S-ATA drive.
If not, any clue?
(sorry if the question was already adressed somewhere, as I really tried to do my best to find it by myself before annoying you

help is desparately appreciated. thanks :]Click to expand...

According to my big book of HD issues, the asterisks mean that the IDE section of the drive is flumped, or your IDE on the mobo is, one of the two.

It should so a series of letters and numbers, if so then it can be unlocked by dell assuming you can prove ownership.

Yes the HD and the BIOS Password are different, actually there are 4, admin, config,setup and the HD.

The easiest way to find out is to hook the HD to a an IDE on a desktop PC and see if it can be seen, if its Locked (ie passworded) it will show as a zero sized drive, if however its flumped,chances are the BIOS wont detect it full stop.

If it is unlocked and accessible copy of the data and scrap the drive and get a new one, now would be a good time to get a decent brand and maybe a size increase.

If it's flumped or locked and dell wont help then they make great paperweights.

Any other questions give us a shout....

A:Dell Latitude D620 BIOS Password

Short answer: You need the original password.
That unit has been refurbished by a Dell-authorized shop (as all with the 595B are) so the restore discs cannot be used.
All of the suggestions your tried, are known not to work in that model... The D600 and D620 are the most difficult of all Dells to fix. You will likely need to replace the motherboard with one known to work. Most of the boards on eBay have the same problems you have.

I know this is not strictly a Vista issue, but thought maybe someone would have an answer.

I have purchased a used PC (Dell 531S Desktop) from a National Rental company with Vista Home Premium installed.

I wanted to change the boot order in bios (CDROM before Harddrive) , but it asks for a password to enter bios. The Rental Company has no idea where this password comes from. There is nothing about it in the user manual.

I assume that Dell did this to keep rental customers from making major changes to the computer.

I can get around the issue by clicking F12 to the Boot Menu and have it boot from the CDROM. This works but it is a pain.

Any help finding or eliminating this password would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

I have a client's machine on which one of his darling little brats has created or reset the BIOS password and now denies all knowledge of the thing. I seem to recall there is either a means of generating the default password from the Service Tag or, failing that, shorting out one of the motherboard chips. That I have done before but would prefer to know which chip it is.
The system is a Dell Dimension 3100.
Anyone able to help before I condemn the thing to perdition and a drop kick into the neighbours wheelie bin?

A:Missing Dell BIOS (boot) password

Difficult task.
What you describe will not happen. But you can check with Dell support to see if the computer is registered to that owner. Then Dell will send someone out as an authorized service rep with a little disk that runs the fix... and has a cost.
I would first see if the hard drive can be accessed while installed in an external USB enclosure.
If it can, then even if passworded, you can put in a replacement drive. And Dell XP install disk will work.
Then you can buy a Dell motherboard on eBay. Many Optiplex boards are cheaper, and work better than the Dimension boards... for a cheaper price... around $70 to $85.... or refurbished Dell government computers are for sale at PCSurplusonline for $120 to $180 with shipping... just move the board into the 3100. And the dell OS will work.

I'm currently working on a Dell D600 latitude laptop. I aim to replace the bios password eeprom (pic 24c) does anyone have any info on this job. I have done it in the past with C600 latitudes where i purchased chips from overseas.
i heard a rumour that for the d800 latitude a blank pic 24cxxx can be inserted. Also could a 12c5xx be placed instead of the 24cxxx. should there be a problem?
Cheers guys.

This thing has a password to enter the BIOS setup program.

I've taken the thing apart mostly, can't find anything.

How do you reset the password on this thing?

A:BIOS password set by accident on Dell laptop

For the record, let's get this straight. You messed up your mother's computer, you scared she'll find out. But in no way can the come close to "Help help life and death emergency". So let's leave the drama out! You should also never post personally identifying information such as the ID and tag numbers of her machine. You have now also put her system at risk.

Quite frankly, unless you were specifically given permission to get into the BIOS as a means of repairing the operating system, you should not have entered it at all.

Hello Chris

You know very well that BIOS password is very important security feature so we cannot discuss about this in public forum. At least you cannot expect that we can discuss about it on Toshiba forum.

BIOS password is important for many notebook owners who want to protect their notebooks and saved data. This explanation here can be abused and every stolen notebook with BIOS protection can be ?unlocked?.

Toshiba service provider in your country can help you with this.

A:I need Dell Inspiron 1000 Bios Password PLEEZ

First try Dell.
If your BIOS was installed incorrectly, the motherboard can be ruined. Before you go elsewhere seek help from Dell Tech Support.
Good luck. This is usually very serious.

Friends, I lost the Dell Inspiron 2650 BIOS Password, The Service Tag
is HTYLJOJ and Express Service Code is 388-169-301-79. I am new on this Forum, I am looking a BIOS Password Cracker or any other Program which will Re-Set the BIOS Password. Program/Utility must be for a FDD because my first Boot Option is FDD.
Regards to all the GENIUS.

A:I lost the Dell Inspiron 2650 BIOS Password

Maybe if you pop out the battery for fifteen seconds the bios reset might include the password as well. I've never tried to reset that password so no guarantee on this. It will not hurt anything. Good Luck.

If your trying to change a bios setting or Reformat any of the newer Dell Laptop's you may run into this issue! There is an Administrator password you will be prompted for. I believe this is created at the factory and unplugging the bios battery no longer does the trick! I tried many different passwords combos and found that:

<dell> all lowercase and minus the brackets works for a few of the newer Dell Laptops

Good Luck,


A:Dell Bios Admin Password/Inspiron 1720

That makes no sense at all. If it were true then Dell would have to provide the password as part of the information it provides to customers when they buy the laptop. Anything else would subject them to being sued.

I have seen several people with the same problem. My daughter received a Dell Latitude C400 from her boss and it was working. Somehow the bios password got set and I cannot resolve it. I have spoken with Dell support and they generated a passwork that did not work. I have also tried to use latitude.exe with the same results. I have read that it will not work with a service code ending in -595B. I have also read that member name removed can get around this problem. Can anyone help.

Service Code #5HCW311-595B
Express Service Code 11933488981

Thanks in advance
