Inside the pc itself on motherboard you will see where it says clear password' there will be a white piece that clips into to pins . remove it stat computer up. once comp windows open shut back down and replace white pin clip. Restart computer al passwords are reset to factory settings. dell has no passwords at factory settings. So I am guessing that this should fix problem on any other

If you have an Win XP installation disk simply insert on the drive, turn off and turn on the computer and run the win XP installation.

If you only want to get rid the password go to there:

How to bypass system password-administrator password dell venue 8 pro tablet


I will attempt to tackle your problem, however, I am uncertain if you need to bypass the bios password or the login password to windows operating system. Some hard drives also have passwords but from your question it seems to be one of the former 2. If it is a bios password or a windows login you can google Hiren's boot CD 15.2 restored v 1.1 DVD Proteus.ISO and follow the directions for creating a Bootable USB or burn it to DVD with any .ISO image burner like roxio or download image burn...it's free. At start up you may have to press esc or f-11 or f-12 to get the boot menu, choose the device that the boot CD is on by using the arrows on the keyboard, highlight the device and press enter, you will get the menu from the CD, depending on your issue , bios password you must go into dos mode, if login to windows you can enter either dos or mini windows xp or mini windows 7 and follow the instructions to remove or reset the passwords.
Yes......give me your service tag number and I will generate the password for you, I have the factory service tag to password generator.....you have a bios password lock. If you also run into a windows password the horns CD will help you.

Bought a dell inspiron mini laptop from garage sale when turned on it asks for HDD password which i dont know and cant obtain


Format the hard drive, if it will let you, and start from scratch. If it won't let you format it, buy a new hard drive and install your choice of OS to it.

The password is a security feature and as such is there to avoid theft etc.
If you prove you own it to a responsible computer repair shop, they should be able to clear the password for you.

Sir you have to reformat the hard drive and load the windows operating system windows xp,2000, vista or seven. then you need to load the application programs. You might be better off buying a working used computer. Also their are too many bad places to go to on the Internet.
