Do the laptops come with a security code already made for the BIOS? My laptop seems to have one on out already. How did this happen if not?

Hi,

Have to try to update the BIOS on your machine? usually that's what HP support do, you can download the BIOS driver to HP website. If happens that you already updated the BIOS and still the fan is not working, it means that the Hardware is faulty.

Locked Hard-Drive, don't know the password ... is there some kind of reset or override or something?


Look in the BIOS under security.
Should be a setting for HDD lock
All else fails call the manufacture and they will give you a master unlock code for it.
I had to do it already for a Dell Laptop.

DELL XPS M140 MXC051 LAPTOP BIOS PASSWORD


Most laptop or notebook computers feature enhanced BIOS security, and BIOS passwords on laptops are hard to bypass. Several companies offer laptop security chip services that can be used to bypass the BIOS password on Dell laptops or notebooks and reset the security. They can provide a master password from the Dell Service Tag of your Dell laptop. This master password will allow you to bypass the existing password and enter the BIOS and reset the unknown password. To generate the master password they need to know the Dell Service Tag of your unit. Dell Master Password Recovery does not require soldering or disassembly of the laptop and supports most Dell models.

Dell BIOS passwords can also be reset by replacing the laptop security chip. Passwords can also be recovered from security chips that have been removed from laptop or notebook systems. These passwords may be required to attempt to unlock protected hard disks. Passwords recovered from these chips are the original BIOS passwords and may be the same as the hard disk password, but are not guaranteed to be the same and may not unlock the hard disk.These are usually damaged in the process of recovering the passwords and are not suitable for replacement into a computer.

My computer is locked in the BIOS Setting


I assume you have already tried the Dell site & searched (using eg google) for 'Inspiron 8600 BIOS reset' so I'll not bother repeating your efforts.

Since you posted here, I can only assume you have been unable to find any information about special power-on key combinations or any small holes underneath (where a paperclip can be used to reset the BIOS) ... in which case your only option is to dismantle the laptop, locate the BIOS battery and remove it for 30 seconds or so.

To find out how to dismantle the laptop, search (google) for 'Inspiron 8600 BIOS Battery replacement' ....

One laptop can not seem to connect


Ok, I had the same problem, heres how to fix it.
1; Turn off your wireless computers.
2;Go to your routers setup page and restore the factory defaults.
3. Name your wireless network only so that you can see it on your laptops.
4; Get onto the network with all of your computers.
5; got to the routers setup page and set the security.

You will have set the security while the computers are already on the network.
