Dell Config Password

  1. Hi all,

    I was wondering if anyone can help me with a problem I have with a Dell D400. I recently received it from my work after they thought that the laptop was broken.

    The problem I have is that the I do not know the Admin password on Windows 2000 pro. I then decided to try and boot from a USB flash drive (as this machine does not have any floppy or CD rom drives). I went into the A07 version bios from Dell only to find that the config system is password protected. I haven't contacted Dell about this as I have heard that they are not at all helpful when it comes to "second hand" machines.

    I have tried booting Windows in it's various Safe modes hoping that it would give me an option to change the password, but all to no avail!

    If anyone can help me get through the first hurdle either by letting me know a way around the BIOS or the Windows 2000 pro password, I would really appreciate it!

    It's driving me mad! I have been trying to get into it all weekend!

    Thanks in advance!

    Admin/Configure Setup Password

    Tomsockey , that would most probably help with the Windows Password, but not the BIOS Admin Configure Setup Password which he also has. To eliminate that, he needs a copy of SVCTAG.EXE to run in DOS using a Bootable Diskette, CDR, or even a DOS only Bootable HDD. Send me an email to my profiled address and I will send what you need for all three methods.

    I've got my D610 from a local second-hand store. It has a BIOS ADMIN pwd set for changes in setup.

    Tried the bootable floppy, but it returns the EE-CPB.exe error..

    maybe I need the updated svctag.exe or smth else i don't know

    pls help

    DSt software

    The version of EE-CPB.exe I have on my copy of the DST software is 5.1 and works OK with the D610. You probably have version 4.5 and that will not cut it. Also there were some additional updated versions and additions to the entire SVCTAG.EXE software for the newer models. I will send the later versions to your email.

    dell Inspiron 8100 HDD + Config Pwd needed

    Hi, Rustam,Paragon and all other Xperts

    I've got a dell inspiron 8100 and i own it and have foned dell and spoke with their support staff who sounded helpful enough, the only thing that bugged me was that the support personnel was trying to deal with two queries from the public at the same time ;(

    Its possible that because of this whatever results i was given did not work.

    The laptop has a BIOS ADMIN pwd set for changes in setup and also a CONFIG pwd too.

    Tried the bootable floppy, and it geves me various codes according to wether i USE the HDD number or the TAG and varies more when lower case as opposed to upper case ;(

    any help what so ever is appreciated.
    Thanks in advance

    Service tag: HYD7B0J
    System tag: HYD7B0J-595B

    The (master?) password from dell was - ylu0kpzs
    Passwords generated by Latitiude_MasterPW.exe were:

    Thanks Again.

    Go to this website and download either the DST Floppy or the DST-CDR-ISO., make the dsisk and run it in DOS to Delete/Change your Service Tag and then reset the same one. That will erase your EEProm chip and eliminate the PWs; resetting the same Service Tag after will restore normal operation

    Thanks for the Info, it took a couple of tries, but it worked.

    Replaced HD with a larger one so I didn't have to worry about unlocking it.
