Hi!! Usually DELL Latitude or Inspiron passwords are storedi n eeprom memories that has to be read or writen to remove / bypass the BIOS password!!! Password generate a hash code that will appear after 3 wrong password attempts and it has a 5 digit decimal format "xxxxx" You can get the hash code by pressing F2 or F10 when you turn on the laptop to enter Bios and then when password prompt appears hit F12 to get the hash code.


You can generate a unlock code or master password with the service tag "xxxxxxx" 7 digit, this code appears at the password promtp screen or at the bottom of the laptop with a white sticker.


I got Latitude D620 Bios password Unlocked at http://www.laptoprebirth.com They can calculate a master password with the hash code. Hope it helps

Forgot My Pin Number. how do retrieve it .


Hola Sorry to say but if this is the right one i searched for the manual found
http://download.lenovo.com/UserFiles/UserGuide/en/User's%20guides%20and%20manuals/K1/Lenovo%20IdeaPad%20Tablet%20K1%20Hardware%20Maintenance%20Manual.pdf
IT said as following:

As many as two passwords may be needed for any Lenovo IdeaPad computer: the power-on password (POP) and the supervisor password (SVP). If any of these passwords has been set, a prompt for it appears on the screen whenever the computer is turned on. The computer does not start until the password is entered.

Exception: If only an SVP is installed, the password prompt does not appear when the operating system is booted.

Power-on password

A power-on password (POP) protects the system from being powered on by an unauthorized person. The password must be entered before an operating system can be booted.

Supervisor password

A supervisor password (SVP) protects the system information stored in the BIOS Setup Utility. The user must enter the SVP in order to get access to the BIOS Setup Utility and change the system configuration.

Attention: If the SVP has been forgotten and cannot be made available to the servicer, there is no service procedure to reset the password. The system board must be replaced for a scheduled fee.



Sorry hope this helps a little good luck

Forgot password, does not have cd rom drive, need to restore to factory settings. How???


Hi there,

How to obtain Vista Recovery Media and/or use the Vista Recovery Partition on your computer to put it back to Factory Settings.


There is no legal free Vista download available.

Contact your Computer Manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of Vista Recovery disk/s.


They normally do that for a small $ cost.


Also, ask them if you have a Recovery Partition on your Computer/Laptop to restore it to Factory settings.

See if a Manual came with the computer, or go to the Manufacturer's website, email or phone them for info on how to do a Recovery.


Normally, you would press F10 or F11 at Startup to commence the Recovery Process..


Another way I have seen on some models is to tap F8, and go to a list of Startup options, and start a Factory Standards Recovery from in there, by selecting the Repair computer option.


Also ask them if it is possible to make Recovery Disk/s from the Recovery Partition in case of Hard Drive failure or System Crash.

They will tell you how to do that.


Each Computer Manufacturer has their own way of making Recovery Disk/s.

Or borrow a proper Microsoft Vista DVD(not Dell, HP, etc).
A proper Vista DVD contains all Vista versions.
The Product Key determines which Vista version gets installed.

There are 2 Vista disks: one for 32bit Operating System, and one for 64bit Operating System.


If a clean install is required with a proper Vista DVD (not HP, Dell Recovery Disks):


Go into your Bios/Setup, or Boot Menu, at startup, and change the Boot Order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the Boot Order, then reboot with the disk in the Drive.


At startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, to go into Bios/Setup, or F12 for the Boot Menu

After installation > Go to your Laptop/Computer Manufacturer's website > Drivers and Downloads Section > Key in your Model number > Look for latest Vista Drivers for it > Download/install them.


Save all Data, as it will be lost during a clean install.


Post back if it is not working we will be happy to help you.
Hope this helps.

I lost my admin password for bios setup


You can clear the bios password by removing the CMOS battery from the motherboard, make sure the PC is disconnected from any other power source, wait a good 3 - 5 minutes, hit the power button a few times to make sure all power is drained from the capacitors, and then replace the CMOS battery. You can then power on the PC and the bios password will be removed.

I have a lifebook t2440 i tired to put windows xp home editon it went to setup and started sherching for a pervious operating system and it came back and said no hard disk drive found.what versions of...


That happens because the BIOS uses a SATA controller that is not included in Windows XP install disk.

Usually you can solve the problem going to BIOS settings and changing SATA/RAID settings.Check your BIOS settings, and disable SATA RAID mode.This is done in different ways depending on the BIOS.

On HP/Compaq computers for example you press F2 on startup to enter BIOS, then disable SATA mode on bios settings.
On other makes the procedure can be slightly different.


Another way to fix the problem, is by creating your own XP setup disk with SATA drivers included, see:
Resolving "Setup did not find any hard disk drives" during Windows .

Startup problem


If you are getting a Blue screen repeatedly and you can't start up to windows in any custom setting ( from f8 start up menu ) one way to solve the problem is to Use the restore disc or windows installation cd or dvd to install windows into the computer or perform a repair installation if a windows already exists on the computer and the setup can find it.

how to perform a repair installation

this is for xp, but its similar on 2000 and on vista.

insert your Windows XP Setup CD, and restart your computer.

1.When the Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

if not then the computer is not set to start up from a cd, you can either enter the setup / bios to change that setting OR right when you power up the computer look at the screen it will say what button to press in order to enter boot menu or bios, it will very likely be button F12 or similar, it should say on the screen when you power on.

if it doesn't, then you need to go into the bios and change the boot order so that the computer starts from the CD first.

after that you should be able to start from the cd and install the OS (Operating system, eg.Windows)

here's some info on how to work the bios: http://www.whitecanyon.com/how-to-change-boot-order.php


Repeat step 1 when you have changed the boot order.

2.Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.

3.Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.

4.In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.

5.Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.

6.Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.

7.Ones windows is working you will need the drivers for your computer, they are at the makers website, for hp and compaq. www.hp.com for acer http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html for all other brands go to google and write Brand drivers. Should get you to the right place. Dell is most likely www.dell.com and so on.

I need to remove my bios password


You can try the old parallel port dongle trick.

Do a search on google for the Toshiba Password Removal. If you are enclined enough you can build your own parallel port key that will wipe the password out.

If you would rather buy a premade port key, search on eBay for something like this -

I found a schematic once online, a long while back when I had the need, and built my own out of spare parts in my shop. Worked great... only had to use it once for a customers laptop. But I still hang on to it just in case someone else comes along. There is also a USB version I believe.
