I can't use a Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop as I cannot access it since I can't remember its
HDD Password. I am also not able to change its 'enabled' in the setup to 'disabled' using <shift> + 1 keyboard functions. As I keep trying, it gives me the following : 'System Disabled ' and at times 'System Disabled '.
The main message I get on trying to boot the computer is as follows:
PXE-E61: Media Test Failure
PXE-M0F: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM.
Operating System Not Found.
Please help me fix it. Is there no other way I can disable or bypass the HDD Password? Just in case it may help, the Service Tag is 6Q4QCC1
You don't have to smell anything. It is an old long abandoned laptop that still works. I know the User and Supervisor Passwords but can't remember the HDD Password. I can get to the set-up but don't know how to disable or bypass the HDD password.
