Need to delete bios password on a dell latitude cpi r400gt

I have just done this. One needs to dismantle the laptop first. Solder a push button switch with extended wires across pins 4&5 of the serial eeprom 24c02. Then reconnect the screen, keyboard & a/c power pack. with a tooth pick press power on switch whilst holding push button on. When the factory mode screen comes on release the push button. Next go to bios setup F2 and ALT-p to the password page. Now enter your new password this will overwrite the old pass word. My approach is slightly different to this following method as it is les likely to brick the laptop.

How do you reset the latitude d505 to factory settings

How to reset the latitude d505 to factory settings:

If you have Windows XP,

Step 1: Backup everything that is important to you.
Step 2: Boot your computer using the Windows installable CD.
Step 3: Format your harddisk or repartition it.
Step 4: Install Windows XP using the installable CD.

Don't try this if you are not sure of what you are doing. It won't damage your laptop, but you might require a long time to get your laptop working again.

Dell Latitude will not turn on.

this time your DELL LATITUDE is hang-up, why because the motherboard find some devices connected which are no longer exist...
Here's what you do for now, remove the jumper switch to reset the cmos setting to clear and back to normal, you can see jumper very near to the cmos battery...
if the problems exist again tell me how many numbers of beeps.. heres my email:

How do i restore to factory settings without disk?

I assume you mean factory installation. You need the disks. Unless there is a recovery partition, unlikely on this model. Alternatively you could find an oem windows xp home or professional depending on what coa sticker is on the laptop and install that.

DELL Latitude CPi A Series

Something to try would be to re-seat the ram and harddrive.

just take them out and then put them back in and try again. I would try with the battery out and just the ac power plugged in.

Being that it was bought off eBay, realistically it probably got banged around a little bit. Sometimes if one of the devices are not making a real good contact it can cause these problems. I have also seen bad batteries cause this problem.

This is not necessarily going to fix your problem, but it has occasionally worked for me in the past and it is a very quick and free thing to try.
