    Boy, I feel like such a mooch, but I'm impressed that things are actually getting resolved here. Thank you very much!

    I have an Inspiron 1000 that's locked, the hash it gives me is 09419 from the BIOS, 00000 from the startup password (it had a BIOS password that I'd forgotten, and I tried to reset it by removing the battery, etc... and when I rebooted it it thinks that it has a startup password now too, but the hash for the BIOS password may very well produce a valid match.) I saw another Inspiron 1000 owner around here and I tried the password you gave him: 1114463 for the hash 00000, but I couldn't find any posts from him saying that he had any success.
    Let me know if you want/need the hardware id or other numbers like that. Thank you very much.

    Nevermind

    Thank you, hpgl, for helping as many people as you have, but I got it figured out.

    For anyone who cares, google "tool unlock6" and in the first result (in the binary revolution forums), look for a link to a rapidshare download. That's a tool similar to the one that he's likely using to do this. HP has had it up on their site a few times in the past, but it keeps getting taken down or moved.
    It worked on my inspiron 1000- first code, first try to get into the BIOS.

    It generates different codes than hpgl's, but that's the neat thing about hashes for anyone who understands the mathmatics, with such simple hashes you can have several different combinations that can lead to the same hash. Let me know if you guys have any success using it. It's an HP tool (I LOVE HP- my main machine is a zd7000, I'm just fixing the Dell for family). Despite the document saying "HP Confidential" it has been "declassified" if you will according to the register (seach for an article called hp_laptop_bios_security dated 2 July 2008 on channelregister dot uk- it won't let me post links yet). It was quite the scandal a few weeks ago... HP giving out a utility to crack its own passwords...

    Unlock6

    Not just those platforms, but give it a shot with other machines too that will give you a 5-digit error code. Like I said above it worked with the "uncrackable" Dell Inspiron 1000 that I was working on.

    Dell latitude D620 master password

    Hi guys,

    I have this problem with a Dell latitude D620 that I don't know the master password and i can't reinstall my operating system.
    I did read everything here but it didn't work for me because:
    I have tried booting the cd that was on one post but I cannot change the boot sequence and removing the HDD will not help, also I don't have an extra HDD to make that one bootable.

    Also all the other executables don't work because I have a service tag ending in 595B.
    I have tried calling dell support but since I don't have an invoice (proof of buying) they will not help me.

    My last hope would be if one of you guys could provide me with this password.
    My service tag is : 64F6W2J-595B

    Thank you so much.

    Hi

    your stuffed then, get your hand in your pocket and buy a cheap 500meg HDD for it and use the bootable harddrive procedure on my site, once run it will remove the passwords in the BIOS and allow you to change your boot order.

    If you wait round here for a password to be given to you, well lets say your going to be waiting a long time...

    Regards

    hey everyone just joined this forum:D

    was lookin for help with my D531, i need to get into the bios and its password protected i was given this as a present from a friend who has forgotten the password :(

    i was readin through the posts in the Jan-Mar 2008 section and noticed a post by Paragon33 he said this:

    "The D531 uses a 25 series EEProm Chip and can not be cleared by eeprom shorting. You need a guy with a Master Password generator for the 595B systems and they all charge fees, except for rustam, who uses this forum for free help, but not often, and not for very recent systems."
    i have already tried shorting the EEPROM with no results as Paragon33 has said, does anybody know how to get in contact with this Rustam guy??

    e.g. like an email address or contact?

    any help would be good

    thank you

    Has anyone has any luck with the Inspiron B120?

    Anyone ever tried a program called PC CMOS Cleaner or a dell_bios_boot.iso that can be found on the net; the latter claims to be the exact thing Dell uses when they unlock their BIOS.

    Why don't you buy something like this and make the HDD bootable that way?

    dell_bios_boot.iso (size ~ 2meg)
    Removes svctag not bios password

    The first one has only 1 comment, and that's in a different language <- so I'd say, not exactly safe
    The second one has a disclaimer that says:
    *****s! <- Would you really give them your money?


    Dell is still the best option (even if denied service through them)

    Dell have informed me that there may be up to one months delay in cases where the proof of ownership identity is in concern.
    1 Month ? And only $36 ? <= I'd say Dell wins again

    Note: If you can prove ownership, the delay is about 24Hrs (ie about a day!)

    No I don't work for Dell
    And if I did, I would have had the generator by now

    So you ended up choosing the most expensive of the two($75 against $60)
    How strange, Do you work at the lollipop one?

    Why you just didn't go through Dell is very strange
    I'd like to go over what I've stated (50 times here, on different threads)
    Dell will help, even if you are not the registered owner (I know, I know, they're really good)
    Anyway, a non registered owner, may need to wait for approx 1 month (I'll have to re-confirm the exact days again)
    Then that's it. Laptop will be given the password.

    but I think you know, now he has all details.
    Your name and adress and through the service tag the real owner of this machine.

    so never give the service tag to someone who is not your friend ;-)

    Actually this thread is not intended to locate the cheapest 3rd party, password removal company.
    Ideally this thread is intended for viewers of the forum to locate a free alternative
    Or at least, advice on what to do (ie Paperclip method or Dell registered)
    There are, in fact, stacks of private enterprises out there doing this
