SOURCE: 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.

HDD password rmove


The HDD password encrypts the windows and other files. The password is there to protect the owner and the owner composed the password out of any combination of alpha numeric and other signs. There is no "Master Password" as that would undermine the security.
Sorry.

My dell d610 is asking for a hdd password. what would it be there is no password for this computer?


HDD password? Is the laptop encrypted? Unless it s a system password set in the BIOS. You'll have to know what that is or reset it.
Reseting the BIOS requires taking apart the laptop and finding the CMOS battery and shorting it.

My roommate entered a hdd password on my Dell Inspiron mini 1012 soon after getting his eviction notice :( I asked this same question earlier, needed bios password cleared also, so those answers were a...


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

Dell latitude d510 hdd password problem


If you don't know the password then there is nothing to do cause the password for the hdd is actually stored on the hard drive. The only solution is to replace the hard drive.

Transfer papers filed with Dell. They gave me a password ZRBFRWSE, WHICH DIDNT WORK.


You didn't post the model system, but generally Dell master passwords are all entered lowercase (zrbfrwse) hold the CTRL key and press enter.
The master password is generated based on the code displayed prompting for the password. Most the systems have options for both BIOS and HDD passwords, it is possible that both BIOS and HDD passwords were setup, the each require a different password.

My dell inspiron 6000 asks for an system autentication password


If you are getting a Grey and white screen asking for a BIOS or HDD master password, you'll need to contact Dell Tech support for a Master Password (USA 800-624-9896) confirm you are a authorized user and then you can get a master password. If out of warranty, a fee may be charged. If a HDD password and you are getting a prompt of ***********-595B then the HDD is bad and will need to be replaced
