    Well rustam if the reason you haven't my service tag thing is because there is no story...

    My Uncle bought me that laptop(Inspiron9200) for my birthday from a friend of his. I tried to track this friend down but when I had he said he had bought it off someone else but can't get a hold of him. So my problem is there is no way I can prove anything to Dell. I have been looking for a way on the net for ages but no luck but if you could help me then I would be grateful.

    I thought of this eeprom thing but I couldn't get a hold of the chip and frankly I wouldn't know how to put it in.

    Also my email is on my profile or you can email me at email removed

    The tag I have on the laptop is #F18XG1J-595B

    Silly me, I forgot to tell you what this is for. I am an avid computer hobbyist and the word seems to have gotten out at my workplace. Recently I have been bombarded with people asking me to fix their broken computers. Of course, this usually just means I reinstall windows and put some user friendly spyware removal programs on, but in this case I couldn't change the boot priority on my co-workers inspiron 8000. When I looked into getting the bios password from dell, my co-worker informed me that her daughter had purchased the laptop second-hand. Neither the computer nor the hard drive are locked, I just need to change the boot priority. Is there any way to do this without the master password? If not I would really appreciate it if I could get it from you Rustam_. Otherwise I'll be stuck trying to remove all of the spyware, viruses, and AOL peripherals manually. Thanks for your time!

    Go to this site and download the DST software-one of three methods of use- and run it in DOS to Change/Delete your Service Tag and then reset it. That erases the EEprom Chip and wipes the Service Tag, other tags and any Passwords stored there during the process

    HHDD Password in a Dell Latitude D600

    Hi Rustam.
    I work in a Services company, in the Tech department. A co-worker brings us a pc that was using. She said that left the pc on at the client site, and get out 5 minutes to see the Soccer Score (WorldCup Fever).When she reurns, the pc was turned off and with a hard disk password (not bios password). We called Dell and ask for support. They give to us some passwords but does not work.

    it ask for hhdd password and shows #***********-595B
    (those are 11 asterisks not a mask. Hard disks was changed by Dell months ago).

    service tag is: B0DDN61

    If you can help me with this I will be very appreciate. The data on that disk is very important. And , as ussual, there is not backup :-(

    thanks in advance.

    If DELL cant help you, why you think I help better?
    Very probably your disk has accidently failed. But try pwd N4DVW4DE

    I agree with rustam that the HDD has lkely failed; A Dell generating a spurious HDD Password screen when a HDD fails is an uncommon occurrence, but it does happen. The asterisks instead of the drive's serial number is further evidence of this failure. If this is a Dell notebook, you may be able to use a 2.5" to 3.5" IDE Adapter and plug the problem drive into a PC's secondary IDE cable as master or on the end of a Cable Select cable, and recover your data when it is not in use as a boot drive, but the signs are not promising.
    The adapter mentioned is one like this:

    Hello everyone. Another Newbie with a story. I too have a Dell. An Inspiron 9300 to be precise. Of course with an authentication password that i don't know. I have read 3 days worth of threads so i wouldn't upset anyone. The only conclussion that I've come up with is that rustam_ the great answers alot of posts and that I need a little more info on how to do the paperclip trick in the event that rustam_ is unable to help me. My service tag is #3SX1891-595B. So if anyone can help I would really appreciate it.

    Password clearing by EEProm shorting

    If you want to try the EEProm chip shorting which will work on the Inspiron 8000, contact me at my Email address posted in my profile. It also works on the 9200 and 9300, but I do not have a location picture for the 9200. The newer models with Dual Core/Core 2 Duo and later CPUS can not be cleared this way; Dell changed to a 25 series EEProm chip which does not respond to the shorting technique. A few of the earlier model Inspirons plus the Latitude LS and L400 use an alternative BIOS and can not be cleared by EEProm shorting, but disconnecting/unsoldering/removing the CMOS battery for several hours and leaving the laptop unpowered will clear some of those. I presently have an Inspiron 2600 board that was cleared this way and an older Inspiron 7000 the same way. The Inspiron 1000 will not clear either way and I have yet to figure that one out.
