You will need two utilities 1. PE to USB and 2 . Bart PE Both are free software. You will need to create a bootable Bart PE image with BatrPE and then dump it on a pen drive ( 1 GB sufficient ) with PE to USB Software and boot your Laptop with it. You can then Format the hard drive which seems to have been locked.

Dell administrator password


Hi There,
Is this a grey screen when you turn the laptop on? This is a system password/lock and can be removed semi-easily with the proper knowledge. Here is a youtube video describing password unlocks - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3m5YTEFDT2M

If the password is a windows administrator password, you can get rid of it with ophcrack - http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/

I want to reset BIOS password for Dell Latitude D430 laptop. hash code is #9s6vfbx


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your Dell Latitude laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

Where is device manager on my dell d430?


You didn't say which Operating System you are using, but if it's Vista or Windows 7 click on Start, then right click on Computer and scroll to the bottom and click on 'Properties'. When the Properties windows opens it should be the top option on the left. If you are using 'XP', right click on 'My Computer', scroll to the bottom and click on 'Properties, then on the 'Hardware' tab. It will be the first 'button' on the new Window.

You have to reset the PC and while booting press F8 until the OS menu shows up, choose start safe mode. When you reach the Login part you will be able to login as an administrator, while you are logged in as Admin change your user password.
Word of advice, change to Windows XP or Windows 7 because Vista is the worst OS I saw. Cheers
