I would attempt to get your money back, because chances are, the hard drive and possibly the mainboard would have to be replaced.

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 6400, asking for HDD password

Insert OS cd in drive and start reinstalling by selecting repair mode now once all files are loaded system will reboot when you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10
this will give you access to your account also you can reset all passwords
Now restart lappy and let the system boot normally without OS cd in drive
now you will come to old screen and previously configured desktop with all intact aplication and icons on desktop and it will no more ask you for password till you set a new one

Thanks and regards

Kindly rate this solution

SOURCE: I cannot enter my dell

Locate the BIOS battery and remove it for an hour. Then replace the battery. This should clear the BIOS password.

Hi,

Not all Dell code generators work on the the service tag ending 595B even though they state they will. Only Dell have the master password generator for that tag ending.

If you are the outright owner of the laptop and you can provide proof of purchase Dell will give you the code themselves for no fee.

If you are the owner then I suggest you give Dell customer services a call. Below is a link to Dells support website where you will get a phone number for them.



http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/dellcare/byphone_prod?c=us&l=en&s=gen



You should find it easy to use and Dell's customer service are very helpful.



Good luck.

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.

Hello,

Well the bios password can be cleared by removing the backup battery generally located under the keyboard. When doing this remove the primary battery and the power cable as well.

As for the hdd password I I believe only a fresh install of the OS can wipe that. The Code its giving you is the product code that you would need to use when you call dell. They may be able to help with the hdd password.

Thanks
