Some BIOS manufacturers implement a backdoor password. The backdoor password is a BIOS password that works, no matter what the user sets the BIOS password to. These passwords are typically used for testing and maintenance. Manufacturers typically change the backdoor BIOS passwords from time to time.
AMI Backdoor BIOS Passwords Reported AMI backdoor BIOS passwords include A.M.I., AAAMMMIII, AMI?SW , AMI_SW, BIOS, CONDO, HEWITT RAND, LKWPETER, MI, and PASSWORD.
Award Backdoor BIOS Passwords One reported Award backdoor BIOS password is eight spaces. Other reported Award backdoor BIOS passwords include 01322222, 589589, 589721, 595595, 598598 , ALFAROME, ALLY, ALLy, aLLY, aLLy, aPAf, award, AWARD PW, AWARD SW, AWARD?SW, AWARD_PW, AWARD_SW, AWKWARD, awkward, BIOSTAR, CONCAT, CONDO, Condo, condo, d8on, djonet, HLT, J256, J262, j262, j322, j332, J64, KDD, LKWPETER, Lkwpeter, PINT, pint, SER, SKY_FOX, SYXZ, syxz, TTPTHA, ZAAAADA, ZAAADA, ZBAAACA, and ZJAAADC.
Phoenix Backdoor BIOS Passwords Reported Phoenix BIOS backdoor passwords include BIOS, CMOS, phoenix, and PHOENIX.

    If that doesn't work, you can open the machine and remove the cmos battery for a few seconds then replace and password will be gone.

HARDDISK SECURITY PASSWORD FOR WDC WD3200BPVT-22ZES


Saw on a forum that this could be the default password.. wdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwd


-put DOS on a floppy disk
-add atapwd.exe to the disk
-turn off the computer & connect your Western Digital hard drive.
-turn on the computer and inset floppy
-type atapwd.exe after A:\
-when the menu loads click on your harddrive
- >Prepare Erase
- >Erase
-enter the password " wdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwdcwd "
-It should come back with an error, press enter and the hard drive name will disappear from the list
-DO NOT RESTART-...Your harddrive is being formatted.
-Let it sit at that screen for 30mins
-Afterwards, press the F5 key(refresh) and the hard drive should reappear on the list
-restart...and it'll be unlocked.

I don't know if that will help your problem but I hope it helps someone. :thumbsup:

THIS WILL DESTROY DATA ON THE HARD DRIVE

Password Problems


Hi,
Could you be more specific , which password are you talking about. Does the system prompt you for the password after the windows Xp screen loads or at Dell logo screen.

If its a problem with the windows xp password, you can try the following option
1. Restart your computer at the Dell logo screen tap on the F8 screen 5 - 6 times
2. Select safe mode from the advanced options menu
3. Hit enter
4.Hit enter again
5. Select adminstrator login
6.Reset the password. a. Click Start, and then click Run. b. Type control userpasswords2, and then click OK. c. On the Users tab, click the name of the user account that you want to reset the password for, and then click Reset Password. d. Type a new password in the New password box, and then type the password again in the Confirm new password box, and then click OK. e. Restart the computer, and then try to log on to Windows XP again.



Note : If you donot have the adminstator account , then you might need to reset the computer to factory defaults.

Thanks
