    Hash Code 02501

    I have a problem with Omnibook Xe3. The Hash Code is 02501. I can't access the bios as the PW was changed and forgotten by one of my daughters. After 3 attempts it closes down and is now locked up. The laptop was given to me by my ex and I have no contact with him, will HP let me register and get it from them? Any ideas as we have no clue of what to do!

    Thank you for being here x

    Hi everyone. I've checked all over the board but cant find any reference to Dell Inspiron 6000. Though I tried the Paperclip Method and now I get "Invalid System Configuration. Please Enter Setup." I cant boot from a cd-rom (dst-iso) nor use F2/F12. Please advice.

    Dell Latitude D630

    I know I asked for the BIOS system password from this D630 (46TD1G1-595B :D ) I'm working on, however I forgot to add, that if anyone can provide me with the location of the chip to short, I am MORE than willing to use the paperclip method, but after spending 1 1/2 hours with a magnifying glass, I was unable to find the chip to short.

    Dell 6400 E1505

    What is the exact story with the Dell 6400 E1505? I read that the paper clip method can be done, but then i also read there is no EEPRom? What is actually going on, is there an EEProm, if so where is it? and if there is no EEprom how do i clear the service tag? it is the grey screen boot order is locked and it is a 595B. I need to make sure i have all the 411 before i open this thing and up with extra parts.

    Great Obi. Your method works very well. But now i have to search through the forum for the harddisk password.

    I will post any positive/negative results soon.

    I am going to an auction tomorrow and am looking at buying a HP NC8230, when i booted it up it had a bios password, can you remove that by moving bios reset jumpers or taking out battery

    also, is the boot-up password reset if a different hard drive is put in?

    thanks so much!

    Hi again
    Common guys, what about me? I tried everything and still stuck with the system password screen. Please Help. All I want is to be able to boot my cd so that I can use DST bootdisk to get rid the service tag. Many thanks in advance.

    Please help me, somebody.

    After shorting the 24C02 as instructed by Obi, I was able to access the bios setup and change the boot sequence to start with cd-rom so that I could run dst-cd. The first problem I came across was the hdd password, but I jacked out the hdd and was on the way to full recovery when I decided to first re-assemble the laptop.

    I disconnected everything and then started re-assembling, testing for boot/power functionality after every major component is connected. E.g. after connecting the palm rest, I inserted the power cord and pressed the power button. If the laptop booted to 'no bootable media present', i turn it off, pull out the power cord and connect something else.

    This went on smoothly, upto when I connected the keyboard. Everything stopped working. When I pressed the power button, the numerous lights just blinked once then off except the hdd and power-on lights.

    I have tried repeating the process several times but to no avail.

    Am almost going mad. Please any suggestions or have I blown the mobo.

    Not exactly for this thread!

    Remove all power (Adaptor and the big main battery)
    Hold down the ON switch for 30 secs (dispersing all internal voltage)
    Let go of the ON switch
    Put the power adaptor back in (only)
    Turn on

    Did it work?
    If yes, turn off and re-insert the battery, and then continue to search for the HDD password !!

    Hey Obi, what name do you call the "little special" procedure ";-)" performed on the Inspiron 6000.

    kimsland Ex-TechSpotter Posts: 14,523

    It is still called the shorting method
    How did the above go?
