Find master password for dell inspiron 700m


If you have forgotten your BIOS or Hard Drive Password for this model, there is a master code that you can obtain from Dell Support. Simply call, Email, or use Online Chat from http://support.dell.com and give them your Service Tag, and they can help you out from there. If it is a Windows profile password you have forgotton, try accessing the Administrator account from Safe Mode (Press F8 at startup), and remove the password for the user account from Control Panel, User Accounts.

I have a dell latitude laptop and I can't change the boot order as it is locked with an admin password. I looked for the bios battery in the manual to remove and put back but there doesn't deem to be one....


Locate the BIOS clear / password jumper or dipswitch and change its position. Once this jumper has been changed, turn on the computer and the password should be cleared. Once cleared, turn the computer off and return the jumper or dipswitch to its original position.

If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.

Another way to try is use the BIOS mfg "backdoor" password to see if you can get in. It's a little more risky as if you're wrong three times, it may lock you out.
Here's a list of backdoor passwords for many of the BIOS manufacturers... scroll down page 1/2 way to see start of listing...

Battrey problems


Battery life estimates vary in accuracy, and are based on algorythms comparing the output of the battery over time. As batteries age, this becomes less and less accurate. Since this is a 100L, if using the original battery, the battery has exceeded it's useful life and will likely have a short functional battery life. (I have an Inspiron 700m with it's original battery, and I get maybe 30 minutes from it, the meter will say 40 to 50 minutes remaining when it dies) Due to the design of a portable battery, which maintains a high output till exhausted, older batteries with short lives don't aid in battery time estimates.

In short, for a accurate battery life prediction, replace the battery.

Is ther away to add another admin account whist a normal user


You can only create a new user login with administrator rights.
There is a Linux password recover program around which can reset or remove passwords on user accounts. You need to Google to find it.
The only other alternative is to re-install Windows.

Administrator password help/ password boot cd


Hello pink,

In order for your PC to read your CD on boot, you don't have to enter your BIOS settings. When you start your computer, press the F12 button repeatedly (like F12-F12-F12-F12), and your pc will ask you which boot device you would like to use.

It will show you a screen like this:

Just select your CDROM in the list, and hit enter. this will read your bootable CD.

I hope this helps.
Jerry.
