Hi, 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 Thank you Cassim
@ Veteran 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.
No one really cares as to the why. No one here can help you bypass a PW that you should know, if in fact, you are the owner. Prove ownership to a local PC shop and im sure they can help you. We cant.
