SOURCE: Forgotten HDD password on Dell Vostro 1510

If it truly is the HDD password, Dell will be of no help to you, as they have no control over the HDD Password; the password is stored in a hidden sector on the HDD itself.

The only people that could help you with that is the manufacturer of the HDD, and odds are they won't help you. It would involve sending the drive back to the manufacturer, and paying them a heft fee to unlock it. It would be returned to you, but would be blank, as they have no way of knowing that the data on it truly belongs to you.

Today happens to be your lucky day however, as I stumbled upon what seems to be a very useful piece of software. There are many restrictions with it's use, so make sure you can manage this. It would involve you connecting your laptop drive into a desktop system in order to perform the task of unlocking, only works with certain drives, and has been known to not work on some Dell HDDs, amongst many other things. Link is below..

There is a reason people put passwords on the HDD, and that is for total security... Good Luck my man, good luck!

My dell laptop types numbers instead of letters on some keys without pressing fn key


HI,
If you Are writing numbers instead of letters when you press the keyboard of your laptop and you must hold down the Function key (Fn) to write normally.

This is due to the fact that the digital lock is activated. To solve this, simply press the Fn+Numlk or depending of the model, press the button or Fn + Shift +Numlk

Hope This Helps
THANK YOU

Display problem


Quickly and repeatedly press each key on the keyboard.
Due to the impact, one of them may have become "stuck" in the "down" position, and thus is interrupting the start-up of your computer.

The "Fn" function on keyboard is on. I want it off. Help!


Look for something that says FN Lock or look for a Look symbol on the keyboard . It's usually on the SCROLL key.

Best of luck!

Keyboard stuck on fn


I found this on another site, and it worked on my Vostro 1510:

Try pressing shift + numlock (Scrolllock in blue) to toggle the Fn feature.

Normal numlock comes on, so press it again by itself to turn that off.

Dell Vostro 1510 Laptop; cant get anything on the screen


Same thing happened to me.
I stumbled on this link and the solution made sense to me.
http://en.community.dell.com/dell-groups/new-to-community/f/3511/t/19323146.aspx

What I did was to nudge in the Hard drive to make sure it wasn't loose and press down slightly on the processor even though it didnt feel loose.

Worked for me. Though I'd help someone else since someone else 's post helped me.
