Question about Dell Vostro 1500 Notebook

2 Answers

How do you reset/break a dell Vostro Bios password? I have a Vostro 1500 from Dell and there is a BIOS locking me from accessing it. I want to break/reset it so I can access essential settings in the BIOS. I've heard there are Dell Master BIOS Password generators out there, but none have worked for me yet. Any help would be appreciated.

1.Power down the computer by clicking the "Start" and "Shut Down" button. Allow the computer to turn off entirely and wait about 30 seconds. Unhook the AC adapter from the computer. Turn the computer over and locate the battery compartment near the display hinges. Push the latches away from each other to unlock the battery. Remove the battery from the laptop.

2. Locate the memory compartment found on the opposite end of the laptop's bottom. Unscrew and remove the single phillips-head screw using a precision screwdriver. Pry the metal door off the laptop using the screwdriver.

3. Locate the memory module. Directly under the module is a blue plastic sleeve connected to the mainboard with a single wire. Disconnect the wire and wait about 30 seconds. Reconnect the wire to the mainboard and replace the metal memory door. Secure the door to the laptop by tightening the phillips screw with the screwdriver.

4. Reinstall the laptop battery, inserting the tabs first and clicking downward. Plug the AC adapter back into the laptop. Flip the computer over and power on the system. Enter the BIOS and change the password if desired, or leave it blank for no password prompt. (Source: How to Reset the BIOS Password on a Dell Vostro 1500 Laptop ' eHow.com)

    I agree with you. Most problems come from Bios Password not accepting the Generated Master Password. only good solution is to go JUMP the bios battery.

CMOS battery is located underneath the keyboard.
Remove the battery for 10 min.
This will reset the bios to factory settings and without the password.
When you have done that, you have to enter the bios to
renew the start up procedure.For the clock and the boot sequence.

Here you can look on the service manual how to make the disassembly:

And here is the driver support site:

Hope this was helpfull.
