Bios Password needed Dell Latitude 610

  1. Hi,

    I've a Dell Latitude 610 laptop that I bought on Ebay. Unfortunately the seller didn't provide me with the Bios password. I've been reading the other threads and I've tried the latitude.exe program but my service key doesn't work as its a 595b.


    If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be very much appreciated!

    Dell Latitude password needed too!


    Thanks for your reply, I've tried all the suggestions apart from opening up laptop. The service key ending in 595B seems to be a more tricky problem to solve. Rustram seems to have magic software that could provide me with a password but I haven't been able to contact him! Mail box full...

    Should I repost in the other thread?

    Unfortunately, that thread is closed so you can`t post there.

    I don`t know about Rustram and his magic.

    As far as I can see in that thread IDidMyC600 and Paragon33 are the peole who know.

    I could send the master password by E-Mail only in case if I'll see here the shared story about a way of getting trouble with password and if it convinced me to help.
    Also I have a instant messaging system for MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, see my profile.

    Dell Latitude Bios


    Thanks to Rustram I have input the password to the grey screen!

    But now im faced with username Password login box. I can't seem to get into the F2 change boot sequence or safemode without passing this screen.

    Also, do you always have to input bios password on restart?

    As soon as the LAPTOP starts up hold down the F2 key, you will then be asked for the password supplied by Rustam, as soon as you press the enter key hold down the F2 key, this will take you into the BIOS, go to the page for passwords and disable them by following the instructions at the right side of the screen. you can also change the boot order from here.

    If the OS has a password that you dont know then do a search for removing windows passwords in google, I cant tell you how to do it here due to legal reasons.

    If you need any more help let me know.

    Latitude C610 BIOS Password

    I also have a C610 with a service tag that end with -595B. The service tag is D9YKV11-595B. I have tried everything except shorting the chip trick. If anyone can help or if you have a password that works it would be most helpful.

    I am from Serbia (country in the south-east Europe...You know, the one that has been into wars over last decade). One month ago, i purchased Dell latitude D610, but not from Dell directly, because there is no official Dell here, in Belgrade, but over E-bay. My cousin, from Germany, bought it for me, since we cannot yet trade with west so easily.

    The tag is #3Y72B2J-595B

    Thanx in advance

    Dell C600 BIOS Password

    The guy who sold me the laptop has contacted someone named Weng Hoi Kok at DELL who generated the password v4lwt6aq for me.

    But I have tried that and variations using upper and lower case, but wth no luck. I was also told to try CTL + Enter, but still no luck.

    When you enter the password do astrixs appear on the screen? Is there any way of telling if my keyboard (besides the Return key) is working?

    Anyone have any ideas besides opening up the guts of the machine (sorry Paragon33, but I am not adept enough to fool around with the insides :grinthumb).

    help i've been hornswaggled

    so i traded for dell latitude c610 on craigslist from a computer dealer. said computer dealer was shady enough to lock bios and not register the drive geometry so when my wife caused the inevitable stack fault error in winxp, i could not reload it. and he wanted 200$ to fix. i have a tech copy of windows since im a tech myself, however i can't get access to the master password, and my friend who's also a tech accidentally locked down the system entirely. if anyone knows the master pw for this model i will be forever in your debt if you could toss it to me.

    Yep use the DST software from my site, any problems use the email me link on the site.

    The C600 is one of the easiest to do (hence my name), no stars appear when you input the tag.

    Stripping the laptop down is a pain but if your methodical about it, its easy and just requires a bit of patience. you can get the strip down manual from the dell site.
    There is a picture of the chip location on my site and use pins 3 and 5 short the chip with the battery in and connected to the mains for about 4 seconds then remove the battery and mains and short whilst pressing the power button about 10 times fast.

    You should then get the manufacturer screen, press the FN key and the X key and your done.

    Then run the DST software to replace the tag.

    SO is it a laptop password, or one that stops you getting into windows, they are 2 different things and I cant help until you tell me.
