Question about Dell Inspiron 4000 Notebook
SOURCE: Password Bios Losse
If you are the rightful owner dell will help you reset this.
but it will take some time.
you will have to remove the cmos battery (looks like a coin) under the keyboard and main battery
wait a few mins and try again.
if that does not work then only some techs knows what chip to short to clear.

You should be able to upgrade no problems, i have a 320gb SATA drive in my 9400, runs fine...try getting the latest bios version.
Check that the connections are the same and you have moved any of the jumpers on the hard drive, see the manual or online help for the hard drive.

Insert OS cd in drive and start reinstalling by selecting repair mode
now once all files are loaded system will reboot when you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10
this will give you access to your account also you can reset all passwords
Now restart lappy and let the system boot normally without OS cd in drive
now you will come to old screen and previously configured desktop with all intact aplication and icons on desktop and it will no more ask you for password till you set a new one
Thanks and regards
Kindly rate this solution
