Hi, I am new to the forum. so hello to everyone and all of that. Hopefully this won't sound as annoying as the other 400 "pleease help i don't want to read anything and just want you to tell me the passwd so i can get into my computer!!" . Well I too have been locked out of a laptop, it is a dell inspiron d420. I wouldn't have purchased it if I knew it was going to be this much of a pain in the ***, but that's how EBAY screws us over, right? ANYWAY, my question is.. Who makes Dell BIOS? Dell? I see all of these backdoor passwords and just one mentioned for Dell, which, happens to be "Dell"...ok, well that didn't werk. Oh, and I have the infamous 595B-ending service tag, which means that the latitude.exe password generator won't work. (depending on who's forum you are reading, because I have read that the 'pro$' still use this in conjunction with something else that works..)
What else did i try? I tried removing the cmos battery, yes i did. That did exactly what I thought it would do: reset the bios CONFIGURATION, not the password. So that must mean that the password is located on a seperate chip, no?
everywhere I read, it is always .." but that won't work if you have a d420.."
f*** that !
Any advice that doesn't mention what i have already tried will be appreciated. actually, any response at all will be appreciated, especially the remote possibility that

How to use a password reset disk
If you forget your password, you can log on to the computer by using a new password that you create by using the Password Reset Wizard and your password reset disk.

To gain access to your local user account on a computer that is a member of a domain, or has been disconnected from a domain, follow these steps:
1. In the Welcome to Windows dialog box, press CTRL+ALT+DELETE.
2. In the Log On to Windows dialog box, type an incorrect password in the Password box, and then click OK.
3. In the Logon Failed dialog box that appears, click Reset. The Password Reset Wizard starts. You can use the Password Reset Wizard to create a new password for your local user account.
4. On the Welcome to the Password Reset Wizard page, click Next.
5. Insert the password reset disk in drive A, and then click Next.
6. On the Reset the User Account Password page, type a new password in the Type a new password box.
7. Type the same password in the Type the password again to confirm box.
8. In the Type a new password hint box, type a hint that will help you remember the password if you forget it.

Note This hint is visible to anyone who tries to log on to the computer by using your user account.
9. Click Next, and then click Finish. The Password Reset Wizard quits and you return to the Log On to Windows dialog box. The password reset disk is automatically updated with the new password information. You do not have to create a new password reset disk.
10. In the Log On to Windows dialog box, type your new password in the Password box.
11. In the Log on to box, click the local computer--for example, click Computer (this computer), and then click OK.
You are logged on to the local computer with your local account information.

Troubleshooting
• You cannot use the password reset disk to reset the password on another computer.

You can use the password reset disk that you create with only the computer where it was created. For example, if you have two Windows XP-based computers with the same user names and passwords, you cannot use a password reset disk that you create on the first computer to reset the password on the second computer.
• You cannot use the password reset disk to reset your domain account password.

You can use the password reset disk only to reset the local computer account password. If you forget your domain account password, contact your system administrator.
• The password reset disk contains sensitive information.

Others may use the password reset disk to gain access to your computer. Make sure that you store this disk in a safe location.

I'm not sure if that was directed at me, but how am i going to re-install anything when I can't even get past the BIOS ??
I read a good article about "the paperclip technique" which is supposed to work on the 'Dell latitude d420' ... Now if I could just figure out where that darn chip is located...(thank you Dell, for the sheep-herding ..ahem.."service manual"..pff!), *ok guys, we get the point, you really dont like it when sheep figure out how to 'service' their own laptops*
..I am a programmer, i don't know hardly anything about hardware hacking, so clue me in if you are in the know..
