Hdd password for dell mini inspiron

HDD password is forgotten. Can't get passed that screen. Called Dell and they gave me four sets of codes and none worked. You would think Dell would give me the master password for it? Does this mean I have to buy a whole new hard drive for it?

Have you tried going into safe mode

  • Tracy Dec 08, 2012

    I have many of times. I can't go into safe mode at all. I been reading on youtube and other places that you need those codes to follow to come up with a master password. Funny when I called the Indian guy working over at dell that he was telling me he could get this solved and he came back with a email with four different passwords for me to use and none of them worked. That was a real downer. Makes me wonder if these people at dell know what they are doing now. Especially when they work for dell. You would think Dell who made the laptop and are the manufacturer could help me out????

    It doesn't allow me to do that because now it seems to be locked into this ~ I can't do a reboot or boot into safe mode. What I am getting is a dark screen now with a white box centered in the middle with this > The disabiled code is coming up as 11751 and the service tag is 73B25Q1

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 6400, asking for HDD password

Insert OS cd in drive and start reinstalling by selecting repair mode now once all files are loaded system will reboot when you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10
this will give you access to your account also you can reset all passwords
Now restart lappy and let the system boot normally without OS cd in drive
now you will come to old screen and previously configured desktop with all intact aplication and icons on desktop and it will no more ask you for password till you set a new one

Thanks and regards

Kindly rate this solution

SOURCE: Forgotten HDD password on Dell Vostro 1510

If it truly is the HDD password, Dell will be of no help to you, as they have no control over the HDD Password; the password is stored in a hidden sector on the HDD itself.

The only people that could help you with that is the manufacturer of the HDD, and odds are they won't help you. It would involve sending the drive back to the manufacturer, and paying them a heft fee to unlock it. It would be returned to you, but would be blank, as they have no way of knowing that the data on it truly belongs to you.

Today happens to be your lucky day however, as I stumbled upon what seems to be a very useful piece of software. There are many restrictions with it's use, so make sure you can manage this. It would involve you connecting your laptop drive into a desktop system in order to perform the task of unlocking, only works with certain drives, and has been known to not work on some Dell HDDs, amongst many other things. Link is below..

There is a reason people put passwords on the HDD, and that is for total security... Good Luck my man, good luck!

Hi,

Not all Dell code generators work on the the service tag ending 595B even though they state they will. Only Dell have the master password generator for that tag ending.

If you are the outright owner of the laptop and you can provide proof of purchase Dell will give you the code themselves for no fee.

If you are the owner then I suggest you give Dell customer services a call. Below is a link to Dells support website where you will get a phone number for them.

You should find it easy to use and Dell's customer service are very helpful.



Good luck.

Hello,

Well the bios password can be cleared by removing the backup battery generally located under the keyboard. When doing this remove the primary battery and the power cable as well.

As for the hdd password I I believe only a fresh install of the OS can wipe that. The Code its giving you is the product code that you would need to use when you call dell. They may be able to help with the hdd password.

Thanks
