Dell Vostro 1540 :: Unable To Set Admin Password On BIOS
Feb 28, 2013
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?
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 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.
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'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?

I just recently got around to dusting off my old work horse. But when I entered what I thought was my admin password, for the third time, I received a "System Disabled " prompt.How long does the system remain disabled and how can I reset/bypass the admin password?
Error Message: "Enter Administrator Password or Power On Password"
Changes made to system that caused issue to occur: Laptop was stolen from car two weeks before Christmas, but was recovered by police and returned to me a month later. Upon retrieval of laptop, the battery was dead and the power pack/cord & mouse wasn't returned with the laptop. I had a dell power pack/cord that fit and used to turn on the computer. A black screen appeared with a blue box asking to "Enter Administrator Password or Power On Password." After 4-5 attempts to enter the password that was set for windows, the system disabled itself. I would have to remove the battery and plug in power cord to reset the computer which continues to ask to "Enter Administrator Password or Power On Password." I do not want to restore or reset the computer by losing all my personal data that was stored prior to it being stolen. Is there anyway to override this or is there a "generic password" to use as a bypass this screen to get it to operate and back to the Windows login screen?
