  1. I have a Dell Latitude D620 and i am getting the gray screen of doom i need the password for this computer. i have opened it up and looked for the EEProm Chip but have not have a good luck with that. any help would be appreciated. i have been looking around for a pic of how the EEProm chip will look like but cant find it.


    Service Tag: GB075B1
    Express Service Code: 35493978781
    When the gray screen comes up it tells me: #GB075B1-595B
    Revision on motherboard: Rev 1.0(A00)
    Boot Screen: Revision A02
    Motherboard: XD299

    Any questions ask.

    Instead of looking for an EEPROM, try pulling the CMOS battery for a few minutes

    IF you want to reset the administrator password for either a laptop or a desktop. Download a copy of ERD Commander from a torrent site or MIRC and boot into the cd and there is a setting there under Start-->Administrator Tools-->Lock Smith, Just follow the instruction and it will over Wright the existing one.

    once you get the password generator software let me know I am very curious if it will work.

    Get into the setup screen and carefully look for a password option... Turn this option off!

    You better get the fan fixed before you fry something or the computer fails to power up at all

    How do you know that the fan works? Just because you can turn it by hand doesn't mean the fan is good. No I don't ICQ

    after type in the master password on grey screen, press CTRL+Enter twice, it should clear all passwords.
