Dell D410 Bios Password Removal Service Tag -595B

By Postgre SQL
Aug 1, 2007
  1. 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.

    Another Dell D410 with Locked BIOS

    Hi, I see that you can help people with a locked BIOS and a Dell D410 model. My service tag is GVY0S91-595B. Can you help me? I have been trying forever to get into this computer. THANK YOU!

    bios configure password

    guys, Paragon33 just helped me with that problem yesterday.
    you need the dst cd boot the laptop with it - if the boot order doesn't allow cd first, you just need to push f12 during the dell screen to open the one time boot menu. after that you have to change or erase the service tag. this will erase the eeprom and the configure password (admin, setup or bios password - whatever you call it) will be gone too. thats it. change your service tag back to its original value if you want and you'll be fine. it worked for a d400 which I was supposed to fix for a friend.

    good luck!

    DST CD = Dell Service Technician CD
    this cd contains tools to modify or erase a dell pc/laptop service tag, asset tag and owner tag. by erasing or modifying the service the bios configuration pw gets deleted as well, nice side effect :)

    download it here:

    The problem is that this CD won't boot from most newer laptops (meaning last 4 years or so).

    that is not correct!!
    the cd boots in every computer even if its not a dell.
    it is designed to work with dell computers but from the inf file I think it works on a few, very few, compaq and samsung (not 100% sure about that).
    anyways I can say that it works for a d410 (worked for me on a d610). I will test it on a d630 soon, which is one of the latest dell models.

    I have tested this on a C400 and D400, both with BIOS passwords. It starts to boot, then gets to the BIOS screen and asks for the BIOS password.
    Sure, it will work if there is NO BIOS password, but not if there is one.

    Verdict: it doesn't work.

    ho wait, please understand that we were talking about the bios configure password!

    the topics starter asks for the password to make changes in the bios configuration, such as boot order and switching on/off devices.

    what you describe is the system password which you need to access the computer to work with it in general.
    if this password is set, yes, you can't access the bios nor the laptop at all.
    but this was not the question here and the dst-cd was not intended to fix this.

    removing or changing the service tag has the side effect to also remove the bios configure password...
    and thats great :)

    hope this clarifies everything

    Yes, the BIOS configured password. If you have a password set the CD will not boot your system.
