This is driving me nuts. I'm trying to get past the bios/hard drive password on an Inspiron 6000. I've tried all the less drastic measures, and now I'm down to shorting the bios with a paperclip. I've done it before with other laptops, but I can't find the CMOS chip, nor do I know which pins to short on this model. The user manual dell provides doesn't have a diagram of the mobo. Can anyone help?

I have a COMPAQ MINI 702EA which has a power on password set. You simply get a glimpse of the startup screen before it disapears and you are prompted for this password, I have tried the CMOS reset with no luck, I believe the password is on the EEPROM and I cant find any jumpers, dipswitches on the motherboard. A recovery tool would need to be on a USB stick. Can anyone suggest what to do before I throw this notebook on the scrap pile!!! Thanks

RECOVERY IF YOU CAN BOOT THE SYSTEM
If you can boot the system, BIOS password recovery is usually easy. The first thing you will want to do is to use a BIOS password cracker to recover the actual password. There are a large number of BIOS password crackers available from a variety of sources. Some BIOS crackers only work with certain BIOS versions and some work better than others. You may have to try a number of crackers before you find one that works.

Some BIOS’ have pre-installed backdoor passwords that enable access to the system if you have lost or forgotten your password. Attempting to regain access to the computer by using one of the following backdoor passwords should be your first step if you have lost or forgotten your BIOS password and cannot boot your computer. If you are able to regain access to your system by using a backdoor password, you can then use a password cracker to reveal the stored password or enter the BIOS setup to change the password. These backdoors are more likely to work on older desktop systems. We are not aware of any name brand laptops or notebooks that have backdoor BIOS passwords.


At boot-up note the BIOS provider (Award, AMI, Phoenix, IBM, etc.)

For Award BIOS’ try these backdoor passwords:
AWARD_SW
j262
HLT
SER
SKY_FOX
BIOSTAR
ALFAROME
Lkwpeter
j256
AWARD?SW
LKWPETER
syxz
ALLy
589589
589721
awkward
CONCAT
d8on
CONDO
j64
szyx

For AMI BIOS’ try these backdoor passwords:

AMI
BIOS
PASSWORD
HEWITT RAND
AMI?SW
AMI_SW
LKWPETER
A.M.I.
CONDO

For PHOENIX BIOS’ try this backdoor password:

phoenix
