Clearing the CMOS (BIOS setting storage) will clear the password.
Go to the Dell website and look for directions on how to clear the CMOS,
or just removing the button cell batter for a few minutes, with the computer unplugged, should also clear it.

Bios password generator dell inspiron 1545


BIOS passwords can be reset in two ways:

1. using software 2. using hardware.

I would first try resetting using software, here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
You can download it here:
http://www.syschat.com/download120.html

CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools
http://www.syschat.com/download121.html&act=down

You will need to create a bootable Dos, or Linux or NT cd in order to run them.

Good Luck!

My Dell inspiron 1545 loads up and asks for my password but then i just get a black screen with the cureser arrow, i don't know what to do to resolve this and would appreciate any advice?


This indicates hard drive issues or the windows files are corrupted. If you have a backup recovery disc, try and install the operational system, if no luck! have the hardware tested to see if you require a replacement hard drive.

Cant log into laptop with my amidd password


if you are getting prompt, "This computer <Service tag number>-595B is password protected ..... you'll need to call Dell technical support to get the master password generated to clear the message. There is no hardware way to clear the password short of replacing the motherboard. Same applies for a BIOS level Hard Drive Password.

Have a dell inspiron e1505 that continually cycles through the start up process. when i hit f12 and run diagnostics iget 0142 and 0146. when I reinstall it will work for a few days and then crashes again....


The error messages indicate a failing hard drive. Replacing the hard drive will resolve the problem. 0F00-0142 amd 0F00-0146 are hard drive hardware failures, Dell Tech support should replace the hard drive if under warranty.

When I turn on my dell c600 laptop, it stays on for about 1 minute then a blue screen appears with a bios error message. How do i fix this?


From the minimal description you provided, it sounds like 1 of two things. Either OS problem/virus/spyware or bad hardware. Try to write down the message generated when the BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) appears and google it.

To scan for bad hardware (sounds like it might be a bad hard drive), use the tool Hiren's Boot Disk 9.4. Replace the bad part and then update the system/reinstall windows (if it's the hard drive)
Good luck

hi, If you set the hard drive password yourself and forgot it, you out of luck. I don?t know if you would be able to recover it. After a quick search on Google I found a utility called A-FF Repair Station. They support a lot of drives and license for 1 recovery will cost you about $50. I have never tried this software myself. If you didn?t set the hard drive password and the laptop still asking for it on start up, then I have a suggestion. Check the version of BIOS installed on your laptop. Three wil be some fix in the latest version like: ?Prevented the message asking for HDD password when there is a problem with the HDD?. In other words, if there is a problem with your hard drive, the laptop might ask you about the hard drive password even if you didn?t set it up. Go to Toshiba tech support website, update the BIOS on your laptop and see if you can bypass the HDD password message. According to the BIOS fix in v.1.50, the HDD password message might indicate that you have a bad hard drive. If after the BIOS update you can bypass the hard drive password message and access the data, I would recommend back it up as soon as possible. regards sreejith
