  1. Hi.

    I hope somebody can help me

    My sister bought from a friend a Dell Latitude D510, it works fine, but I need to change the boot order and find that the bios has a password, and my sister's friends went to live to another city, so I can't get the password from him.

    The id of the computer are:

    Service Tag 2BPTN91
    Express Service Code 5062066165

    I hope somebody can help me.

    Thanks a lot

    Didn't work

    I took off the battery, as you say, for almost two hours, put back in its place again and turn on the laptop.

    Is the same thing, I can't get into the bios and change it.

    I'm going on searching to find the solution.

    Thanks anyway
