I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

As that model doesnt have diver support for windows 10, that may be part of the issue. That rig wasnt meant for w10, have you considered going back? That may help. I dont see a way to run that OS on that hardware. At least reliably.

Hello , I have a Dell Inspiron 530 running Windows Vista Home. I am trying to access the system BIOS and it has a red password log in screen. I tried to guess and enter several log in passwords including  the word DELL and none of them worked. I didn't want to enter too many wrong passwords because I didn't know if the system would lock me out. Can anyone help me by pass the BIOS log in password or some how disable it ? Thank You in advance.

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!

Not likely. Watch for posts from a couple of three guys who claim to be able to do so... it varies greatly by model number whether they can actually do so.
Dell will do it for a price, if you register the machine in your name, and wait. 21 days, if you send the machine to them and pay them more that it is worth.

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.

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 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.

Hello all & RUSTAM,

My name is Jordan, an Account Manager in Toronto.

A year ago I set a password on my Inspiron 2200 and forgot it. Judging by the forums, you might get these requests frequently so I'm sorry if I'm just another person asking for help.

My SERVICE TAG is 7YGPW81-595B, I was wondering you would be able to email me my code or old pass. What bugs me is that I remember setting it to something simple like 1234 or 12345 or asdf. You might see that if its in the service tag. I tried for hours already.

My email is [email protected], or I'll be happy to give you my phone number via email.

Anyways, IF YOU ARE EVER IN TORONTO, I would like to buy you a drink or show you the town. Let me know. I hope you get this soon!

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

Hello huffman and welcome to the forums

I would suggest that you should download the Hirens Boot CD:

Hiren's BootCD 14.1 - All in one Bootable CD ?

Burn this file to a CD at a low speed using this:


Then boot into the CD

On this disc there is a tool called BIOS Cracker 5, you will need to use this to remove your password. Here's a tutorial:

my computer was running fine and normal until two days ago i rebooted and left my ipod plugged in normally in this scenario the computer will boot to the dell loading screen as it always does and the progress bar will stick at about percent so i press power unplug the ipod and restart normally this time however on reboot i came up with a quot Hard disk -A B the primary system HDD is protected by a password authentication system quot message a similar message has been discussed at length on these Inspiron password HDD Dell 5150 BIOS) (not boards it seems that very few people have the exact same message there are more starting with quot This computer blahblahblah quot and Dell Inspiron 5150 HDD password (not BIOS) from what i ve heard HDD passwords are close to impossible to break if anyone can help me out i would like to know how this could have happened and what i can do to at the very least preserve the data on the disk or remove the password the curious thing is that after reading the forum i came under knowledge that a password can be generated using information from my computer which was unsuccessful over the phone with dell they provided me a password which they had quot generated quot and it did not work however the tech support woman was almost arguing with me that the HDD password was the same as the bios system password i have seen other peoples messages and they are seemingly different system computer password as opposed to hard disk am i wrong to think that if i were to put my HD into another the data would still be locked i am still able to get into bios on my computer which brings me to the fact that i m getting eleven asterisks instead of a code followed by the quot bios standard quot a b which is why they insist that it s a bios password does this mean that potentially my hd is not actually the problem but there is a motherboard short causing it to not be recognized properly help is desparately appreciated thanks nbsp

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....

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.

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.

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,

Hi all,

My little brother has gave that Dell inspiron n4110 BIOS a password and now he has forgot it. I know I can remove that password by opening the laptop but I don't want to open it. I can access to the OS which is Windows 7 and also can reinstall OSs by pressing F12 key, but when I want to go into the BIOS setup (which I should press the F2 key for that) that password is required. I've heard there are some codes removing that but I'm not sure is it real or not.
Any solution for that laptop?

A:How to remove Dell inspiron n4110 BIOS password

Dell have recently added additional security to some of their laptop range - if you have somehow triggered this security you will have to contact Dell, and supply them with full details of the laptop, including serial and reference and full proof of purchase - they can then remove the password free of charge

If you can find the jumper on the mobo to reset the bios - try that.

Hi everyone. There are several threads that are available for help with reseting a Dell D620's bios password here. And I understand they have all be closed b/c all the information has already been discussed. But within those threads all the links to the dstcd.iso are dead now.

There really isn't a valid solution. The D620 is unusually difficult to impossible for password repair, and the idea was chewed for a year. Solutions that supposedly work are perhaps illegal and certainly dangerous. They turned out to be a good source for malware and infestations without being helpful. All the solutions are as expensive as replacing the system board or the computer.

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.

The USB ports on my dell studio xps 8000 keep dying. the light on the mouse stops working, unplug it and plugging it back in usually fixes it. there's also the sound its makes when you unplug from usb then plug in. sometimes I only get the sound which freezes the cursor then it working again. other time mouse is completely dead (no light) passes dell full tests says nothing wrong

Want to pick up a ssd for my XPS 8000. Noticing that there is no AHCI in the bios. Is there a way around this?

I was hearing that I can set the BIOS to RAID and that will force AHCI. Is there any info on this?

Thank you and Merry Christmas.

A:SSD install on XPS Studio 8000 ( no AHCI in BIOS )

Hi Domchin,
Your system supports the use of an SSD (at SATA II speeds), but does not support AHCI.
