How to unlock dell inspiron 1545 hdd password with toshiba mk2555gsx harddrive?

    Honestly I have tried all of the above other than calling Dell for the master password. I thought that since your company charged me six dollars, I would have gotten at least a password to override the existing password.

To remove a HDD password you have 3 options

1. is to find out what the password is and turn it off in the bios

now option 1 is not possible if you do not know the password.

2. is to take the hard drive from the laptop and attach it to a desktop computer as a 2nd hard drive inside the computer, then you need to obtain MHDD low level hard drive tool

now this is a special program - you take the iso image and burn it to a cd and then start your computer off that cd. In the program you select the problem hard drive and enter the command dispw (just write disp or hit f1 for help or show commands to find the exact command to disable the password)

now option two is advanced and most people will not be able to perform it even with instructions.

3. contact dell and have them remove the hard drive password or replace the hard drive.

    you obviously have not attempted any of the above. The MHDD does remove the password, I've done it myself many times. Other option is to replace the hard drive. You can call dell and they will charge you 50-200$ for the job. So the 6$ (of which I get 2$) for advice you are stealing my time.

Can you help me unlock and Dell Inspirion 1545 Primary HDD password?

Only Dell or the hdd manufacturer can do that and there will be no data on it when unlocked. There is also a financial issue, possibly cheaper to purchase a new hdd that have it unlocked.

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:

CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools

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

Good Luck!

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 and It is a just over a year old (by one month) and I have to replace the hard drive since its out of warranty. The drive is a Toshiba SATA 5400RPM 250GB Disk Drive. I have no...

I can understand the inconvenience you are going through. I have worked in dell so i would like to tell you that the hard would would cost you around $50. The sales rep will give you a costlier option but you can ask them for this price hard drive. If you get it from dell the rep in technical will also assist you in getting it installed free of charges.

I would say get it from dell either online or over the telephone..
hope it helps

Thanks and Regards
