    Hi Rustam_

    Hope you can help me too. Very simply I have a new work laptop and a work issued external cdrom. I need to do some important work this weekend but they mis-configured the pc and I cannot connect the drive or my digital camara for the photos. As such I need the admin password, to change the boot order, to change the windows admin password, to enable installation of hardware under my user account. My work's only solution was to send the laptop back for them to rebuild and that will take 7 working days.

    Please help me, my service no. B2C3T0J-595B, and my email address is in my profile.

    hello rustam_

    So my boyfriend likes to brag about how dumb I am. (I'm blonde.) He doesn't WANT me to know how to do stuff on his computer. NOW I'm really in trouble cuz I defied him and used his laptop while he was out of town. I don't even know HOW I did it, but when I was done, it didn't work anymore. Somebody told me this is where to look for how to fix it. Please tell me I'm not so dumb to have found the right place! I've read lots of people's posts and it looks like I need to supply some numbers to get back in to his dell. The grey screen number (that never showed up before last night) is 16Q0F41-595B. Some other numbers on the bottom are: express service code, 2583268993, and another number is CN-0X2034-48643-41I-3484. It will be so cool to have things like they were before he left. He's coming home in the next day or two. PLEASE PLEASE HELP!?? If I survive this one, I'll always know something he doesn 't.

    Hi rustam! [your PM is full... I hope you read this - or maybe somebody else can help me?]

    It is so great that I found this thread and you - being able to help with Dell Master Passwords for the Administrator BIOS Password.

    I have a real problem with my current Dell Latitude D610 what I recently received from a former colleague, who left our department. I somehow feel disabled with my "baby", not having full access. The main problem is, that I would like to install a bigger harddisk, and that I would like to communicate via Bluetooth with my mobile phone. But this function for example is disabled :-((.

    The thing is, that the ex colleague who left us, somehow must have changed the pass, what was known before. Another guy who also already worked in the bios on this machine provided a password, but this didn't work. I would be so grateful if I could receive a positive answer from you.

    Here my data:It was really so good if I hear from you!

    Many thanks and best greetings, Thomas!

    Successful method to remove primary password from Dell Latitude D600

    The shortcut method from http://www.download.centre4service.com/home.html was precisely applied. The laptop was dissambled using the guidelines from www. support.dell.com. I only made a flexible device by soldering: thin pin - electrical wire – paperclip. The thin pin I put with some tape against one of the eeprom connections, the other one I kept in my hand for (dis)connesting with the other eeprom connection.

    The eeprom was located underneath the PCMCI slot, so the slot has to be removed. The eeprom is with some difficulty accessible after putting the palm rest back.
    The laptop will not start when the pins are shorted.
    You have to switch the power on, wait about 3-7 seconds, than short. The short has to be removed before the booting is complete (before the moving bar is at the end), otherwise the laptop will power off. I tried many times before it worked. One time I got press Fn-X, but the key board did not respond. Subsequently nothing seemed to have changed (pw was not deleted). I tried again may times and at one point I got “Invalid configuration, run setup program”. But again the keyboard did not respond, however, now this persisted. The laptop was dead. I tried booting from floppy but again the message “invalid…run setup”’ and no keyboard response. Funny enough after about 3 minutes it did continue and F2 became available. Now I could enter the setup program. Indeed the passwords were deleted. Interestingly the service tag was not deleted and shown.
