    I also have an enabled admin password on a dell latitude c640 that I cannot unlock? It also has the 595B end system number? Help....Went to Dell, they gave me some useless regenerated code that didn't work.

    :)
    That comment doesn't make sense :confused:

    Go back to Dell and get the correct code
    Obviously it was mis-quoted or something

    Anyway glad you can use and get the code from them, you're ok

    Who?
    Oh that old member (now gone!)
    I believe he changed usernames here on the forum (a couple of times)
    But, I'm not aware if he still helps here.

    The closest match now, would be hpgl (as he has helped others recently)
    Otherwise it's Dell support, or the Paperclip proceedure

    ive already tried the paperclip method on my d531, but the EEPROM is a 25 series is it not and they can resist the shorting method :( :(

    yeah if you want to pay :haha:

    But most come here to get it for FREE (especially the advice)

    Here's the best advice (I've repeated over and over)

    Paying a private person is the absolute last option !

    c0deage were you offered to pay someone?

    erm.. no i wasnt mate Frocher was just sayin that he got his laptop unlocked from *******************.blogspot.com

    ive already been on that website and they charge $60 thats about £30 for me which i dont have until i get paid at the end of the month :p

    but it means ive got a about 3 weeks to ask hpgl and see if he/she can help me out :D:D

    cheers

    Good idea (other than Dell of course :rolleyes: )

    Asking for payment, can be an instant ban on here.
    But we don't know if this does not happen on the forum (unless others let us know)

    Frocher's comment should be taken as the worst idea, obviously

    Dell Latitude D420 Please Help

    Hi everyone

    I am new to the forum and in desperate need of some help, I am a student and several months ago bought the Dell Latitude D420 from a carboot sale to help with my studies. The laptop was wroking fine and I saved alot of work on it, when I tried to put my own password on it it locked me out. There is no way of me getting hold of the guy who sold it to me so now I am unable to access my work. There must be some way around this but I am no computer whizz, I do not even know where to start!

    If anyone can help me sort this out I will be sooo grateful,

    Thanks

    And cheaper and takes 1 day only

    Although some members have commented on 3rd party external (expensive) methods. Dell does this for approx $36 only. Or do it yourself for free with the paperclip method.

    i think some people here r 3rd party product supporter..only they can help to send you to money hungry sharks
    service!! wich is very expensive and much stupid :s


    But I'll let the real members (who actually are wanting help) decide what's best

    System or Administrator Password

    Okay i'm not sure if this is the right place to post this but i'm going to try. I bought a Dell Inspiron 1521 from a pawnshop. It didnt have a powercord with it so I figured it would be easy to get one off the internet. I got the powercord and booted it up and there is this white screen smiling at me saying i need to type in the system or administrator password.. Well I read about the paperclip thing with the eeprom thing. I dont trust myself shorting anything out. I was wondering if i bought a new motherboard for it if that would work or would I have to short the eeprom?

    Any info would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you,
    I feel I screwed myself over

    SUCCESS
    Just wanted to let everyone know I successfully removed BIOS passwords from my Dell Inspiron B120 with service tag ending with 595B

    I used the DST CD from http://www.download.centre4service.com/software1.html

    Just burned it, booted from it and voila... very simple.

    Thanks to all of you I learned something new.
