Unplug the AC adapter from the computer. Remove the battery from the computer. Open the display 180 degrees until it lies flat on your work surface. With a small screwdriver, gently pry up the right-hand side of the hinge cover. Gently remove the hinge cover moving from right to left. Remove the 2 screws at the top of the keyboard. Lift the keyboard up and hold it up and slightly forward so you can access the keyboard connector. Lift the latch on the connector and slide the cable out. Use a small screwdriver to remove the coin-cell battery. Wait a minute or so and replace the battery, keyboard, and hinge cover by reversing the removal process. Your BIOS password should now be cleared.

Be careful to ensure that the hinge cover is properly seated before attempting to close the display as it is easily damaged.

Bought a dell inspiron mini laptop from garage sale when turned on it asks for HDD password which i dont know and cant obtain


Format the hard drive, if it will let you, and start from scratch. If it won't let you format it, buy a new hard drive and install your choice of OS to it.

Reset hdd lock for acer aspire


Step 1:
The Dell Inspiron 1501 is a laptop computer which ships with the Windows Vista operating system. Recovering a lost password can seem difficult, as you will be locked out of the passworded account until remedial measures are taken, but it is not impossible. Recover from a lost password on your Dell Vista system by using the password-recovery features of your operating system.

Restart your Dell 1501 and tap "F8" as the computer is booting. Choose the "Safe Mode" option and press "Enter." Select the "Administrator" account to log in to the computer in Safe Mode. Click "Start," type "control userpasswords2" in the "Search" box and press "Enter." Click on the locked account and press "Reset Password." This resets and recovers the password on your Dell computer.

My dell inspiron 1501 is asking for a hhd password and i dont no it please could you help me get my laptop bk up and running.


This is a feature to protect your computer, should a thief have stolen it.

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC-power.
Remove the battery.

Re-insert the battery.
Turn the computer on.
Does it still ask for a password?

If so, find your original sales-receipt, and telephone Dell, and ask them to assist you, as the "registered-owner" of the computer.
