    Try the default Dell bios password which is "Dell" or

    Dell Latitude BIOS Password Recovery

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

I have a Dell Latitude 110L (2005). I cannot access the BIOS and do not have any discs to restore it to the factory settings to access the computer. Can you help me?


Reboot the computer into Safe Mode
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer Advanced Boot Options screen appears.

Select the Safe Mode option using the up and down arrow keys, then press the ENTER key. Choose "Windows XP Home/Professional", depending on the version of the operating system.

Press ENTER. Shortly, the welcome screen should show.
Log in as "Administrator".

Click Yes to not use System Restore Mode.


Click the Start button. Choose Run and type in "control user passwords" (without the quotes). Click OK.


Select the "Administrator" user. Click Change my password. Enter a new password in the corresponding text boxes. Click OK. Write this password down and store it in a secure place Close the User Accounts window and restart Windows.


In User Accounts select the account you wish to change the password for, click change password and then enter the new password or click remove the password to remove the password from the account.


If all else fails you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard


Many RTC's require an external battery. If your RTC is one of this type you can clear the BIOS password just by unsocketing the RTC and reseating it



Hope it helps

DELL latitude 100l, someone disabled all boot devices then set config / administrator password. Please help


Boot Priority on Dell Latitude 100L
  1. Turn On Your PC
    Have you ever noticed the messages that pop up on the screen as soon as you turn on your PC? These messages tell you a key combination you can press to enter "Setup" or the "BIOS." Watch your screen and see if you can read what keys to press.
  2. Press the Keys to Enter Setup Mode
    If you did not see a message telling you what keys to press, try tapping the following possibilities as you turn on the machine:
    • Esc
    • F2
    • F12
    • F10
    • F1
    After pressing Esc or other key, you will most likely see instructions telling you how to enter "Setup Mode". Follow those instructions.
    tip.gif On some computers, you must hold down the key before you press the power button to turn on the computer. For example, if you are converting a Toshiba laptop to a Linux Workstation, you must hold down the Esc key and then press the power button. The computer then asks you to press F1, and you can then set the "Boot Priority."
  3. Using the Arrow Keys, Choose the "Boot," "Boot Order," or "Boot Priority" Option
    The menu of choices you see will be different for different kinds of computers. Remember that the choice you want is the "Boot" order or "Boot Priority." On some computers, this is called the "Start Up Options" or "Start Up Sequences." You are going to change where the PC will look for boot information when it starts up. (CD-ROM, HARD DRIVE/HDD, LAN, FLOPPY, USB). If you wish to boot from your Hard drive, then select it as your First Priority.
  4. Using the instructions on the screen, save your settings and start up your PC. The PC must boot from the HDD. Regrds

How do i restore my dell latitude 100L to factory settings ? I thought it was F11 but it doesn't work


Try pressing F8 when the computer first boots up(before the windows logo). Then select "repair your computer" on the advanced boot options menu. Pick the language and log on as a user that is an administrator account. Then click "dell factory image restore". Then select the option to reformat hard drive and bring the computer to factory condition. Then wait and your computer will be restored. Remember that anything that did not come with the computer will be lost in this process so make sure to back up anything you do not want to lose before starting the restore.

On my hp computer i set my dad an account then after a while we forgot the password and he was the addministrator so everytime i try to download stuff i have to do his password but i cant because we forgot...


If you are lucky, the system is running Windows XP home edition. Boot to the Safe mode (F8) at boot, and see if you have an option for an ADMINISTRATOR account if there is, the password should be blank. Then you can boot to that account, and reset the password on your father's account.

Here is a link to more information on dealing with a forgotten password.

Need XP Professional password for Dell Latitude D600


Assuming Windows XP.

Boot into safe mode. Do so by pressing 'F8' a few times just as the computer begins to boot up (right before the Windows screen)

Once in safe mode, click on administrator (or type it in as the username if it doesn't come up with the welcome screen). It shouldn't, by default, have a password if it is XP Home.

Once logged in as administrator, go to control panel and users and change the password on the account you want or create a new one.
