    bios password

    hello rustam,

    i have a Dell Latitude CPx laptop which keep on asking a password during boot-up and/or when pressing F2. (This computer system, #F5I7J**-D35B, is protected by a password authentication system. You cannot access the data of this computer without the correct password.)

    i am a teacher by profession and i really need this laptop which was given to me becuase of this problem. am hoping you could extend your help to me for me to be able to use the said laptop.

    thank you and God Bless....

    Since your laptop still has -d35B Password and Service Tag, try this one kpnhay4d from Latitude Master_PW V2.20. Type it in with caplocks off and do not capitalize the letters, press CTRL and then press Enter 3 times.

    Hi rustam, i was reading the last 4 pages and looks like you the man for helping us to get in business with this laptop. Same story, like on the last 3 pages, got this laptop for my boy in the highschool from a friend, (who past away last week) but the laptop is looking for a password, asking us to type in the primary or administrator password. We just don't know what it is. The service tag is #FMGT41S-595B and the Express service is 34010223040 it wold be a big help for us if you can send me the password, we will love you for ever and ever.... thanks a lot.

    Are you getting the infamous Grey/White Screen asking for a password on boot? If not and Configure Setup is Disabled in BIOS on the Password page, go to this linked site and download one of the DST files depending on what peripheal drives you have and the state of your boot order.
    There is a last ditch way of running the DST File by using a DOS Only bootable Harddrive and a program for making that plus instructions. The DST file will delete and reset your Service Tag and during the process will erase the Passwords stored on the EEProm Chip with the Service Tag.
    This is NOT a way to get through the grey screen though, but there are instructions there for that also.

    Hello,

    I am doing some work on my friend's mother's computers. Her two laptops are both Dell Latitude CPx's that she bought from Boeing Surplus, and both have a master and admin password. She has forgotten the password, and my friend (whom was being quite defiant) won't tell her the passwords - he "forgot" them. I am hoping that rustam_ would be able to help me with obtaining override codes. She has the receipt for both of them when she bought 'em, but Dell doesn't believe her (they really need to work on their Customer Service). If that isn't possible, I am going to go out and buy myself an old Dell (I know of where I can get them) and try the instructions on Paragon33's website. As these two computers aren't mine, I'm sure you can see why I'm hesitant to take them apart. I understand that rustam_ doesn't come online often, so if anyone else can be of help (i.e. those who he's helped), it would be much appreciated. There is no hurry, but I hate having to wait to get a job done (I'm sure some of you can relate).

    Currently only one Dell will boot, and here's the -595B number:
    #8IDA9**-595B
    Service Tag: 8IDA9

    When I am able to get the other to boot (it is having trouble recieving power), I will provide that information.

    Thanks for the help here, I've enjoyed reading through the various threads on this site.

    Edit - I swapped the hdd's, and the second Dell shows up with a hdd password error. I am guessing that it doesn't have a master/admin if it's gotten past that. Here's the hdd specs.
    #AH0AHPD6278-595B
    Service Tag: 53FP501

    Dell D600 Latitude Harddisk Bootup Protected by password

    Help. I bought a Dell Latitude D600 from e-bay.
    When I booted it up, I got the page :-

    Harddisk #357K3KUEHPH-595B
    The System Primary HDD is protected by a password authenticated system...

    Calling Dell was futile... I almost given up.
    There is no way I can trace the original owner now to do a transfer...
    Anyway, by talking to Dell, it seems to suggest that the origin of this notebook was suspected...

    Anyway the Service Tag :- 8LLYB1S
    Express Service Code :- 18720920944

    It is pity that I got to leave it in this unused state.

    Is there any kind soul out there that knows how to obtain the master reset password ?

    It is not MY site; IdidmyC600 is hosting the info and software for all users that I sent to him and other things of his own making. The Harddrive error? should not stop a DOS Floppy boot.

    There is no easy solution to a Dell HD password... best thing to do is buy a new HD and be done with it.

    Sorry, I know you didnt want to hear that...

    Download the boot disk or CD Iso from my site and use it to reset the service tag, once done the Admin password will clear and you can reset the service tag and this will allow you to set any password you want.

    ==========================================================

    It works !
    I would really like to thank you for your the great help.
    You have brought me relief and untold joy. I though I might have to put this laptop aside.

    Another infuriating thing was that when I access the BIOS setup, I saw this :-
    Admin Password :- Enabled
    Configure Setup :- Disabled
    Configure Password :- Enabled

    It seems that someone has meant to make it hard.
    How infuriating !

    Need your advise and help again.
    Is there anyway to have the remove the "Disable" the Admin Password ?
    Otherwise I am unable to do change BIOS setup in this Dell D600 ?
    The System number is :- #8LLYB1S-595B
    The Service tag is also :- 8LLYB1S
    Express Service Code :- 18720920944

    I have re-setup my profile to receive e-mails.

    Thanks

    Hi Rustram, I hope you can help me & would be eternally gratefull if you could. My story starts with a lightening strike killing my sons laptop. As he needs this for his schooling, it was devestating. So I bought a second hand Dell Inspiron 8100, as I am on a sickness benefit (cancer), & everything was working fine. Then my son in his infinate wisdom decided to Password protect everything & forgot the password. So we are now locked out & have no access. Tried Dell, but as It is second hand & the previous owner is overseas now, they denied me any help. Tried the "Paper Clip Method" & Yes I do get the "Manufacturing Mode Level (FF)" screen, but Fn-X does not clear it & it goes back to the grey screen. I have tried HUNDREDS of times & can get the MM screen everytime, but still no Fn-X.

    The Asset Tag ID #4G72B0J-595B
    The HD #68068LL4444-595B

    Many Thanks in advance...
