  1. Hi!

    Please help me to clear the Bios password of the Dell latitude D520
    Service tag: #CPG3N1S-595B
    Express Service Code: 27660086128
    REV A01 (I am not sure if this is Bios version but I found it underneath of the laptop in case if you need it)

    I looked at the Paragon site but there is no D520 model so I dont know what to do to get the password or some way to crack it. Please help me

    I have the same laptop and same problem. I can do the shorting but cannot find the chip. Have you found which chip is the eeprom chip to be shorted. And I assume that you short ALL pins, so if it has 6 legs ALL need to be shorted? Please share with me what you have found out.

    d520 unlocked!!! :)

    I have latitude d520 with xxxxxxx-595B service tag, my bios was locked but I successfuly unlock them. Procedure is: remove coin-cell Battery for couple minutes, put them back. And all bios settings now are on default. that mean in boot order, usb, cd/dvd is now switched on. Now you must download this file and make bootable usb drive. Pass for archive is "smellyalater". Remove the hard drive and put usb in laptop, turn it on and fallow procedure.

    Bosnian rulez!
