Reset Bios Password Jumper On Dell Desktop


How do you reset the bios password jumper on a dell desktop?

Answer:- i know some methods. 1. The best and easiest method: close os and shut down the electricity power of computer. Open your computer box, take out the cmos battery from the main-board. Then the bios password will be reset to blank. Put it back after a few minutes. 2. Follow some hard tutorials, it is difficult to do. It is better that you are a expert. For example this tutorial: bypass bios password or crack cmos password? http://passwordreset.org/bios/bypass-bios-password-or-crack-cmos-password.html

3. Use the bios password recovery tool http://www.Biospasswordrecovery.com, but that is not free!

So i would suggest you the 1st method. Hope it helps.

Reset Bios Password

How do you reset the bios password jumper on a dell desktop?

Answer:- if you know the password you can enter the bios settings to change the password, but i stress that you will need the current password to do so. If you do not know the current password, you will have to remove the lithium ion 1. 5v battery from the computer, which will require a miniature screw-driver. If you remove the battery for about 30 seconds, the bios settings will be cleared to default. In order to do this i suggest you look up a guide on the manufacturer's website and find out where exactly the battery is housed. It is generally very easy to access the battery, so don't be too scared off by all of the steps provided. If you are a newer of computer, you can use the bios/cmos password recovery tool from http://www.Biospasswordrecovery.com

Reset Password

Answer:- which system do you use? On windows xp, try this:

Boot computer and press ctrl+alt+delete twice when you see windows welcome screen / login screen. It'll show classic login box. Now type "administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press enter and you should be able to login windows. Now you can reset your account password from "control panel -> user accounts". If that doesn't or you use windows 7 or vista, try this:

1. Enter a computer that can link to internet. Download windows password recovery tool 3. 0 and install the software on that computer. 2. Run the software and create windows password reset disk by follow the instructions. 3. Eject the created cd/dvd and insert it into the locked computer. 4. Reboot the locked computer (it's necessary for you to change your locked computer's bios setting to make it boot from cd drive) and then follow the instructions to reset your password. 5. Now login windows and set a new password.

Hp Bios Password Problem

Have a hp ze4430us laptop here and put a bios password on it in may and now for some reason or another cannot get into the bios or the machine to boot without a password. I have taken the machine apart and even removed the cmos battery thinking that would clear it and it did not. I have left the battery out of the machine and reassembled and tried to boot without the cmos battery even and it still looks for a password. I then removed the hard drive and only have cd rom in the machine still no cmos battery and it still comes up with password screen. Does anyone know how i can bypass this. Or wipe it clean.

Hp Pavilion N5420l Bios Password

I've been trying to help a buddy over on get past a bios password on an old hp pavilion n5420l that the previous owner of the laptop put in. So far, no success. We've tried re-flashing the bios, which, according to the manufacturer, is supposed to clear the password, but doesn't, we've tried using cmospwd to no effect, and have reached a dead end, i guess, unless someone has ideas. Flashing doesn't work because the password is stored on another eeprom chip besides the main bios eeprom, as is mentioned in the cmospwd readme. While this may be the case, i still can't figure out why the manufacturer would state that the password would be cleared by flashing.

How To Change Dell Pc Password ?

Someone changed my password to my dell pc and now i cant go in, what can i do to get inside and change it?

Answer:- you forgot to tell us what password. Is it a bios password or windows password? For windows password, as far as i know, there are two main methods to solve the windows password problem as follows:

1st method: start system and when you see windows welcome screen / login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show classic login box. Now type administrator (without quotes) in username and leave password field blank. Now press enter and you should be able to log in windows. Now you can reset your account password from control panel - user accounts. Same thing can be done using safe mode. In safe mode windows will show this in-built administrator account in login screen. 2th method: windows password recovery software: for example:windows password recovery tool 3. 0 . It is easy and convenient to use. For bios password, also two methods:-
1st method: open you computer box and discharge to the board manually
2st method: use bios/cmos password recovery tool

Hard Drive Jumper Issue

Well to cut a long story short, my hard drive which is the primary master now runs very slow when i have the jumper on master or cable select. With no jumper it runs fine. "Well run it without a jumper i hear you say!" But i have a new drive i want to use as slave on that controller and no jumper means slave to the 1st drive. (When it needs to be master) hope this makes sense. Anyone help?

Jumper Power Supply Permanently

Basically, are there any power supplies that i can "jumper" permanently. My goal is: i have an empty atx case, but as far as i'm concerned, its an 8 bay hard drive nas case or how ever you want to look at it. I had the default power supply in it, and i jumpered the green and the black pin to keep the power on with out a motherboard and it worked great! But after a month or so, the power supply did die, as all the blogs/forum post suggested it would. Is there any thing i could do to power 8 hard drives in an empty case, with out a failing power supply? Do they make power supplies that are able to run with out a motherboard? Or perhaps an option i have yet to find?

Dell Desktop Reinstall

Does a dell desktop computer have to be reinstalled by dell only?

Answer:- you can reinstall windows with the recovery media for your desktop, or you can purchase another copy of windows and install it yourself. Or you can switch to linux and install it yourself. You can have a friend do these things as well. You can also pay a repair technician to do one of these things. If you have to send your computer back to dell, they will only reinstall the copy of windows that the unit came with when it was new. Reinstalling your os yourself, or having a friend do it, or having a technician do it, or changing operating systems will not void your warranty.

Run Mac Os On Dell Desktop

Is it possible to run a mac os on a dell desktop?

Answer:- not legally. Apple manufactures their own motherboards, which are different from those found in standard pcs. Apple motherboards don't have a bios, and they have a security chip. If the os doesn't find that chip, it won't install or run. There is no legal way around this. Emulation won't work - all legit makers of virtual machine technology, vmware included, have signed legal agreements with apple stating that they will not attempt apple hardware emulation. Apple's legal team is pretty good. You can buy a mac mini. They're pretty cheap, can run windows as well as mac os, and you can use your existing monitor, mouse and keyboard with it.

Dell Desktop Restore Original Settings

How can i restore my dell desktop to its orginal settings? I have a dell desktop. It's not old, but it's not new, i've been using it for a few years, and it suddenly got the "blue screen of death", and my mom was fiddling with it and i don't know what she did with it but. Once i turn it on, it goes right to a black screen and says. "Strike f1 to retry boot, f2 for setup utility". I clicked f1, and it just says it again and makes a little beeping noise. I also clicked f2 and there was really nothing in there that would help me i don't think. How can i somehow boot my computer and then get it so i can re-install windows xp again and get it to work?

Restore Windows Xp To Factory Settings On Dell Desktop

Restoring windows xp to factory settings on a dell desktop. My family's desktop computer is riddled with viruses, so need to restore it to factory settings. All data backed up. With my old laptop i did the restoring thing a couple of times - in start up mode you press f11 i believe? But that was a sony, does that still work with dell?

I know sometimes you need a disc to reinstall windows xp but am not sure if the computer came with one (it's very old), and if it did, i doubt i'd be able to find it!

Amd Phenom Ii X6 Or Intel I5 On A Dell Xps Desktop

What do you suggest, amd phenom ll x6 or intel i5 on a dell xps desktop im personalizing on their website? I don't play crazy huge games or do anything way fantastic with my computer so i don't need alienware like stuff, but for the same price, which one is better, faster, more reliable? I have amd anthon x2 right now on my current inspiron 531s, can't complain with it at all, but i can't help hearing a lot about the new intel i3s, i5s, and i7 processors. $1, 000 is the budget that includes a $200 monitor, and i'm definitely going to get a pretty good graphics card!

Seagate / Maxtor Drives Fitted With Speed-limiting Jumper At The Factory ?

I had a glitch yesterday with some drives connected to a 3ware 9500s sata controller. I contacted 3ware support & they advised me that:

In order for sata ii drives to remain stable on the 9500s controllers they do need to be set to the sata i link speed. Please make sure all these maxtor drives have a jumper placed on the j50 jumper. This will force the drives down to the sata i link speed. So i went on the manufacturers' websites for all the drives in this system, found out how to do this for each drive, and then scrabbled around for enough jumpers. Two of the drives are very similar-looking 500gb drives, one maxtor, the other seagate, and i was amazed to find they both already had the jumper fitted! I am quite sure that i never fitted them, because i never even knew about this jumper before today. Is it really possible that seagate / maxtor are fitting the speed-limitation jumpers at the factory? Read more at the forum.

Dell Dimension - How To Enter Into Bios ?

How to get to the bios on a dell dimension 9100? I am trying to increase the video memory by imputing more ram. They say you press the del key when you start the computer but all there is f2 setup and f12 the boot menu. When i press del nothing happens. Answer:- for entering into dell dimension bios and for most dell computers, you should press "f2" within a second or two after turning the power on. When the blue dell logo appears, press immediately. If you wait too long and the operating system logo appears, continue to wait until you see the windows desktop. Then shut down your computer and try again.

Desktop Does Not Fit In Screen - Scrolling Desktop

I just bought a new laptop and i am changing everything to what i like - which includes the size of the resolution of my screen. Whenever i go to change the resolution from 800 x 600 to make it look bigger (example: 1024 x 768) my laptop has no problems doing that but instead of making the whole desktop fit into my laptop screen, it makes it so i can sorta of like scroll up, down, left, right to see the rest of the screen (but there aren't any scroll bars, they are like invisible if u know what i mean). How do i change the setting so that the whole screen resolution will fit into my laptop screen instead of this scrolling method?

No Post At Power On But Ok After Reset

I hit power & the hdd light is on for 30sec. Then off. No signal to monitor, no post, boot drive is not active. I hit reset & everything proceeds as normal. (Sometimes there is garbage on the screen during post & clears up with windows "welcome" screen) system was working. New ps & cpu cooler & fans. Was working for 1 week with current hardware. Since i was working with different configurtions to cool this unit there were numerous power cycles. Actually, with as much fiddling i have done inside the box, (cable routing, fan relocating, disconnecting & reconnecting, components etc. ) I feel lucky that this is the only problem to have arisen. Where do i look first?

How To Reset A Wd Passport Essential ?

How to reset a wd passport essential ? I don't know, i'm asking you. My dad has a wd passport essential with it's fancy schmancy encryption. He set a password, locked the thing and forgot the password. So the drive is essentially useless. After scouring the internet for a way to recover the password, i learn that there is no way to recover the password or data on the drive, but the manual and other resources hint that there is a way to reset the drive and delete the data on it. Wd apparently doesn't want people doing it though because i can't find any information on this process anywhere, and by anywhere i mean google. So i'm here wondering if anyone figured out how to reset this damn thing. I've taken the thing apart and have a feeling that it might relate to jumping some pins. I've sent wd this question, but i doubt i'm going to get a useful response. If i do, i'll be sure to post it here. My dad in his haste tried reformatting the drive. So i'm receiving it in possibly an odd configuration where the hd is not immediately visible in windows, but its various utilities on it's "virtual cd" is. Disk manager says that the hd is write protected and apparently missing a partition table when i try to initialize the drive. Probably has to do with the encryption stuff. The various utilities won't let me do anything until i unlock the drive. I tried wd's datalifegaurd to see if it could do anything, but it can't seem to find the drive. It's a 750gb model. Model number: wdbabm7500abk-nesn. On the inside the drive carries the model number wd7500kmvv. It has an sata label, but its pcb only has a usb port and unlabeled pins. For those thinking about getting a passport: i don't know if it's been mentioned but there is a downside to the passport's encryption. It's bricked if you forget the password unless wd's magic reset process is found. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Computer Reset At Random

I have an old computer that's been acting strange lately. It suddenly resets at times. When you turn it on, there's a higher chance of resetting. After some time (hours) turned on, the chance of resetting drops, but occasionally it stills resets. I've tried replacing the stabilizer and the power box. It's not overheating and the fan is working fine. I had been using it for a while and such resets never happened, but then i left it aside for some months.could this have damaged something?
