I am having a little problem in my inspiron 5110 laptop.I had set master password on my BIOS but now i did'nt remember password and Setup is locked, what should i do to unlock that setup. I tried every combination of password i set?
Recently I purchased a Dell Latitude D830 motherboard as a replacement for the damaged one in my own system.
The seller didn't tell me that the system has a customized bios and a password, instead he announced it as 'password free'. The board is working and I can enter the BIOS but all settings are locked with a password.
As the seller refuses to take it back, I need to reset the system. The first owner of the board is known and I have the service tag ready. Is there any chance to reflash an original DELL BIOS and to reset the password(s)?
I just purchased a used HP Mini 1000 - Model 1151NR for my daughters birthday. The previous owner apparently entered a bios password and now I can't access anything. I tried unplugging bios battery to reset it and hundreds of codes. thefatal error .. system haltedCNU9279ZHM
I have an HP mini 1000 that a friend gave me. It is asking for a password at the startup before windows kicks in. My friend doesn't remember the password and after 3 failed attempts.How do I get the bios password based on this error code?
After you get passed the bios password, I received an error telling me that there was a corrupt or missing file. These mini notebooks don't have a CD-ROM. What are my options? These were bought at an auction so we don't have the original CD to reload them.
One day I came home and opened my laptop to see a black screen with a blue bar and white font saying Harddisk Security SAT Port 0 Hitachi HTS723232A7ALock. I don't know what to do, nobody put a password on it, and the manual doesn't give a password.
I have a dell lattitude e6320 that i just got and im totally locked out of the laptop after one use and a screen comes up saying something about dell sercure manger and asks for a palssword and after u get it wrong 3 times tje laptop shuts down ....
I have an envy laptop m6 and when I turn it on a blue screen comes up that asks for an administrator password. I have tried it multiple times and then it says system disabled and gives the code 85508345. Is there a way to reset the password?
I'm trying to fix my neighbours computer, it's a Pavilion dm3 and somehow she managed to completly lock the system. When it boots it just asks for the administrator password and will not continue to boot, not even bios menu is available.
I've read some other posts on this forum that the way to unlock it is to post the "halt code" given when 3 passwords have failed, in my case that code is: 51019908
Also, how does one even end up in this state, I've never seen this kind of lockdown before?
