    Is this for the password when turning on the machine, or when it boots into the operating system?

  • john_kitt523 Mar 14, 2011

    This is the password to change BIOS settings - boot devices etc. Admin Password under Security on Bios screen

There is no way to "find" the BIOS password, as it is embedded in the computer's hardware. There is a DIY for resetting it here:
The easiest way to get back into BIOS is by replacing the motherboard or having a shop perform the aforementioned procedure.

    your solution has been posted many times on the internet already, replacing the motherboard is not a financial option, shorting pins does not work

    Unfortunately, most computers (including this model) irreversibly encrypt the password so that it can't be retrieved. When the password is initially set on the computer, it warns you that it cannot be reset without knowing the original password.

    The main ADMIN BIOS password = ahtkvf8s
    Type it in, hold ctrl & enter.

Does anyone have a bypass for a dell inspiron #BBVHJ81-595B lost admin password?

Hi Kirsten,

Assuming we are talking about a BIOS password I would suggest you to try calling the Dell Technical support team on 18006249896 (U.S only) and prove ownership. They can check and help you further.

Note: Please refrain from posting the service tag on a public forum

Thanks and Regards.
Kiran Kumar.

Free administrator pasword Dell Latitude D-610

try Admin or Administrator Or it may be blank, just try to hit enter w/o entering anything at all. Good luck. Or when it boots up F8 and run it in Safe Mode. Many ppl never put a password for Admin. I've gotten into many computers that way.

Yvette Escobar,
In order to reset the bios passwords you will need to contact Dell Support. They will need to verify ownership of the system and then will provide information to reset the password. If you are in the US the number to call is 1-877-624-9896.
Thank You,
