    Lattitude c840

    I volunteer at a church and a Lattitude c840 was 'dropped off' (should have been my first warning sign) When I fire it up I get the bios password msg. This system fpsx421-595b needs bios password, blah, blah, blah. I would have simply called Dell, but when you flip it over there seems to be no service tage. The spot where it should be was ripped off. Is there another place to look for it, if not how do I get this resolved. I'd do the paperclip/sandwich tie thing if I knew where to go. I looked at the schematics for the system which told me all of nothing. I popped the keyboard off and can't see anything labeled 'CMOS reset'

    "I have a Dell D400 Bought second hand, has anybody got any idea how to unlock it"

    i have heard that if the original owner will transfer registration, dell will help with the laptops. Might just ask original owner what the password was, truthfully laptops are way to mobile and easily stolen so most laptop companies will not help with unlocking passwords. be aware that laptop drives can also be protected with passwords and it is written to the drive, not bios, removing drive and sticking it in another system will still not let you into it.

    Supposedly you can reset the BIOS password on Dell desktops by resetting a jumper, according to a Dell support page.

    Dell says you have to contact them for resetting laptops' passwords.

    Can I use that to clear a bios password on a HP Omnibook XE3 GC model. I bought it on ebay and the seller is playing stupid but also sold 2 other laptops to other people on Ebay. The laptop works but I need to put in a larger hard drive and change the cpu and now I can't evan get into the bios. Another Ebay scan deal if you know what I mean. Buyer Beware I guess
