I bought aDell Latitude E6410 laptop yesterday and every time it turns on it says no boot or something. So I push the enter button and it resets. Then when it shows the dell logo again I press F12 and go to the boot sequence and its set on cd drive and not the internal HDD. So I choose to redo that all over again and then press boot from internal HDD and it works no problem but its a lot to go through just to start a laptop. How can I figure out how to change the admin password so I can set the boot sequence right.
I arrange of one latitude D620. I have not the access to be able to modify things as the startup of the system in the first one on the CD-ROM because I do not know any more the Admin password. What is the default admin password account of one latitude d620. Either how can i make to cancel the former admin password?
I have set an admin password for the BIOS of my dell inspiron e1505 laptop. I do know the password. But, is there some way for me to completely delete the password? Essentially I want to be able to access and change the BIOS settings without needin an admin password, the same way I used to before I set an admin password for the BIOS.
I've got a problem with setting the admin password on bios A02 at Vostro 1540. Machine just doesn't switch to "locked" mode, after reboot it goes straight to OS, like bios password never been set. Is it defective machine/firmware or maybe I've missed something?
Lost my admin BIOS pwd. Created case for support. They`ve sent me bin file to put on USB or HP_TOOLS partition and power up system with "Windows+ ArrowUP+ArrowDown" buttons.Howerver, when i power up system like this, nothing changes in startup at all.Do those buttons really mean something?I see from Internet that autoflash BIOS combo is Windows+B and Power.
I've just acquired a Dell Latitude D630 that needed a new hard disk. I get the blue screen of death when I try to re-install WinXP and a search on this problem revealed that I might need to change the disk type in BIOS. However the previous owner set an administrative password that I need to use to change the hard disk setting. I've tried a number of things and nothing has worked. I even disconnected the CMOS battery but that just lost the date and time, it didn't reset the password.
Having problems with the cursor, I have tried various Drivers but to no avail, so i replaced the Palmrest and the problem still exists, The bios recognises the Touchpad, can't figure out were the problem is coming from.
I used to be a Dell Technician too, 578260. I got a latitude e6430 given to me from the company I am currently working now Prodagio Software. I am locked out of my BIOS but manage to use the laptop using finger print. I forgot my password and with that problem I am not able to modify anything inside the BIOS. I am afraid to do a reset because I might lose the A08 upgrade.
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’m testing some E4200s (with SED SSDs and regular SSDs) and have run into a possible bug with the HDD password “bypass” option in the BIOS. The “bypass” option in BIOS allows you to specify if the HDD password needs to be entered during warm boots (restarts), standby, etc. I’ve set it to “disable”, which means that the HDD password must always be entered (even for restarts). However, the E4200 does *not* prompt for the HDD password during warm boots (restarts). It correctly prompts for the HDD password during cold boots and standby/hibernate only. I’ve tried upgrading the BIOS to the latest version (A13 to A20), but that didn’t work.
At this point I think it's a bug in the BIOS. I've tried this with different e4200 laptops and different drives (regular SSDs, and self-encrypting SSDs).
I'm no computer genius but I'm no 'dummy' either. I tried like heck to resolve this problem but just cannot figure it out. I called Dell cust svc but they want $49 to talk to INDIA! ugh.
I need a response from someone who at least "writes" English! Bought my mom a notebook a few years ago and it was just fine until recently when my niece
tried to get on and got the Administrator's login box (blank screen underneath) - nothing before it except the Windows logo with the little boxes blinking across. No matter what we do, it won't allow a bypass ......
I've been given an HP Pavilion G6 laptop that belonged to someone who passed away. It asks for a power-on password, and after three tries I got a System Disabled code of 79308945. Is there a way to change the power-on password? I've read several threads in these forums asking this exact question, and people have been given an individual code to get into their machines.
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?
