    Can you help?
    Thank you.

    Hi I also own a dell d610 which is more like a dell paperweight. I have tried the latitude.exe and the files, neither work... I also downloaded several other files called latitude.exe one of which was a nasty virus. Anyway I found this thread and there seems to be hope that someone can help me.

    When the pc boots it says
    This computer system, #Q1P2X**595B, is protected by a
    password authentication. You cannot access the data
    on this computer without the correct password.

    On the bottom of the pc I found stickers that say;
    Service Tag D391D81 Express Service Code 28494749233

    The paperclip method worked for my D610!

    After countless hours of mucking around with and latitude.exe, and even getting a virus on my desktop downloading files called

    The dellstrip.pdf was usefull however the pc in the pdf file was different than mine. I had to completly strip down the laptop and search for the 24co2 chip with no guide. I found a similiar chip near the Bios battery that was marked
    24lco4b. It was the only chip on the entire MB that had 24 or CO on it.
    The chip was unaccessable with the MB in the metal frame. Since the chip has to be shorted while the pc is running, it was necessary to break a very small piece of the frame with some pliers. (not visible when pc is assembled)
    I partially assembled the pc with the bottom plastic cover removed, shorted the chip with a paperclip at points 3 and 6 and booted up. The screen said manufacturing level 001
    press fn-X to return to normal operating mode
    I do not yet have a hard drive caddy for this pc but it is booting the windows disk without a hitch. Now that it seems to work I think I will go get a hdd caddy and install windows.

    Thanks for the tip.

    To both the previous posters, well done for being the only ones so far to actually take on the challenge and remove the password via the short method, kudos to you both.

    Let this be a lesson on how easy it is to do it, after all I did it, and paragon33 does it all the time.

    It made me feel real good when I did mine , so much so that I chose a username to reflect it.
