    So basically gthis is how I fixed it; I couldn't prove ownership of the dell m170 I needed help with... so I told dell the problem was with my 700m, and the helped me... I know it's not exactly truthful but it worked.

    That thread is indeed closed and is for information only.

    I suggest you try contacting Dell and see if they are willing to help you.

    There are only a couple of guys on TS who can actually unlock Dell D620`s, whether they will reply to this thread, is a different matter.

    The only other option is to search Google for Dell password unlocking and pay to have the password removed.

    Regards Howard :)

    Dell Inspiron 600m - Bios Password

    Sorry, but i am a newbee and trying to help a friend. The laptop is a Inspiron 600m, Service tag is 4QW5K81-595B. The system will not let me access the bios settings and keeps asking for the admin password. I have tried Dell and that does not work. On another site i read remove the cmos battery, but I have also read that does not help. The system wont allow her to reinstall windows as the ntoskrnl.exe will not load. Is there a master password that will over ride whatever is set in the Bios admin password?

    Thank you for your help,

    Administrator password for Dell Latitude D820

    Hi, I lent out my dell to my buddy awhile back, and i just got it back (finally) and I have the gray screen of death. I have checked online and have not found a latitude.exe that works for the -595B so im asking if anyone can get me the administrator password for this that would be awesome!

    did you put the password on it and forgot it or did your "buddy" put it on the laptop? why don't you ask him for the password then?
    plus, if you are the legal owner of this laptop you can also call dell and let them reset the pw. thats a matter of minutes....

    download the dst cd and change the service tag. this should as a side effect also remove the bios settings password. don't forget to change back the service tag afterwards to save your warranty if you still have one.

    here's the link to the software:

    I pm you the password for the rar file

    hope this helps!

    Dell D520 Locked By Admin Password

    Hi rustman
    My name is Adrian live en Mexico.

    I recently bought a dell latitude D520 (without battery) from a garage sale in the USA, unfortunately when I got home (Mexico) and finally was able to buy the battery it has some kind of Admin and configuration password lock problem.

    Unfortunately I dont have the info from the seller and besides Im days away from the seller.

    Im so desperate and I know you are the one that can help me as you helped many peple. I really need the laptop becasue im a teacher and
    as you know or not here in Mexico teachers dont get paid very well, so I bought it with sacrifice to use it for my work and to have my students
    work on it as well.

    Was willing to use the paper clip but wasnt able to find the chip and so I read this model dosent have one.

    SERVICE TAG : 4LYT3B1-595B
    EXPRESS SERVICE CODE: 1003583293

    Thank you in advance

    there are 3 options for your problem.

    1) scrap the drive its not, i repeat not possible to unlock one without losing the data on it.

    2) do a google for "repair station" they unlock drives for a price but they get blanked in the process. (not all drives supported)

    3) search the threads in the mobile computing section for a guy called Rustam, he can help you if you can pin him down.

    oh yes there is a fourth option, go to my site and read it.

    Im confused..... password on dell C600

    hi all,
    im a bit confused! i have a Dell C600 which has a admin password, which i need disabled.
    having spent a few days going through the posts on this site, i think there are 2, maybe 3 ways round this...
    1/ short the chip
    2/ get a password from a member called Rustam, if he can be found...
    or 3/ download a file from

    i dont like the idea of 1/
    from what i can see Rustsam hasnt been around for a while...
    and im well confused at what i need to download / run from the website...

    can anyone point me in the right direction?
