Question about Dell Inspiron 8500 Notebook
My son was given an 8500 by a legit owner who didn't transfer ownership with DELL. It wants a BIOS password and DELL isn't helping at all. He completed their transfer of ownership form 2 months ago and has heard absolutley nothing since. This model uses an EEPROM chip that must be reset or bypassed acively rather than removing the BOIS battery.
Can you give us detailed instructions on how to bypass/reset the password?
We haven't been able to find a local tech that would guarantte results, onlyefort and we would have to pay them even if they aren't successful.
We would sure appreciate your assistance.

Resting a dell inspiron 8500 bios password

Your computer has been protected by a Power On password.
If you didn't set this password then ask the person who set the password on the computer.
This password is near impossible to crack, try various names, pets, kid's names, family names/places, street names etc. There are no back door passwords and the password is not stored in the BIOS and removing the BIOS battery won't erase the password.
The password is stored on an EEPROM chip and you need electronic knowledge to build an EEPROM reader, then pull your laptop apart, solder the reader to your laptop, connect the reader's connector to a working computer, and run a program to read the contents of the EEPROM, identify the password from the downloaded data, unsolder the reader, put the laptop back together, boot up and insert the password. You can now enter the BIOS and change the password or remove it.

The Power On password and the Hard drive password are designed to prevent unauthorized access to the laptop and the data that is stored on its hard drive.
Removing the hard drive from the protected laptop and inserting it into another laptop will not work, you still cannot access the data on the hard drive without the correct password.

Tips for a great answer:
Each Dell Inspiron has a master password that clears the BIOS password. Call Dell Technical Support at (800)624-9896 to get this number.
Dell Technical Support will request the Service Tag and Express Service Code from the bottom of the Inspiron.
If the current user is not the original Inspiron owner, Dell will transfer the used Inspiron's registration from the original owner with only the Service Tag and Express Service Code from the tag on the laptop.
To transfer a used Dell Inspiron's registration, fill out the Transfer of Ownership form on Dell's web site. See... http://www.tech-faq.com/reset-dell-bios-password.html
