How do I access the screen that shows BIOS options as I wish to upload UBUNTU 11.04 from a pendrive, so I want to make my first and possibly second BIOS options to be for the pendrive.


At boot time repeatedly pressing either, F2 , F12, or possibly Fn+F1 this is depending upon the bios wether it has been updated or upgraded. One of these should do the trick.....

Need to delete bios password on a dell latitude cpi r400gt


I have just done this. One needs to dismantle the laptop first. Solder a push button switch with extended wires across pins 4&5 of the serial eeprom 24c02. Then reconnect the screen, keyboard & a/c power pack. with a tooth pick press power on switch whilst holding push button on. When the factory mode screen comes on release the push button. Next go to bios setup F2 and ALT-p to the password page. Now enter your new password this will overwrite the old pass word. My approach is slightly different to this following method as it is les likely to brick the laptop.

Have Dell D266x gives me dell page that says bios revision and wont kick into windows


Visit the Dell Drivers Downloads websites and download the lastest BIOS version for the notebook.

See if you can get an MS-DOS version. Boot the system using an MS-DOS repair disk. then attach the disk with the BIOS setup by USB.

If you don't see an MS-DOS version, you may have to format and install or do a fresh install of your operating system (or a lower version that supported the BIOS). As soon as windows is re-installed, run the windows version you downloaded from the source disk you saved it.

This should work!

Password problem


Hi there.
If the laptop was bought for you as a engagement gift and your friend has proof of purchase then Dell will be able to give you the master password as bios passwords cannot be cracked that easily.
Here is Dell customer support site >>>>>>

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Password problem


Christophe Grenier has written a program that will calculate the master BIOS password for Dell Latitudes from the Service Tag number.

Get it here.

http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~skynet/zips/latitude.exe

Go into a command-session (or DOS-box) in any OS you like.
Go to the directory with the LATITUDE.EXE program in it (size is only 5,467).
Type in latitude 12345 and hit enter.You have to substitute 12345 with your 5-character service tag number. The program then gives you the password.
Simple (if you know how to).

NOTE*** that some antivirus programs might indentify this file is a "hacktool" that is perfectly ok, the file indeed is a "hacktool" but it does not do anything "bad" to your computer.
That is it only does what has been explained in this thread and that classifies it as a hacktool...

Something to try would be to re-seat the ram and harddrive.


just take them out and then put them back in and try again. I would try with the battery out and just the ac power plugged in.


Being that it was bought off eBay, realistically it probably got banged around a little bit. Sometimes if one of the devices are not making a real good contact it can cause these problems. I have also seen bad batteries cause this problem.

This is not necessarily going to fix your problem, but it has occasionally worked for me in the past and it is a very quick and free thing to try.
