Looks like this thread has gone on for a while. I am an IT with a school district, and a kid set an admin and an HD password. I've since discovered there is no simple CMOS clearing option, and the drive is also a paperweight now. Dell is unwilling to provide support for an OOW device, leaving us with an expensaive brick which isn't realluy broken, but still useless. This is a level of security we neither required nor asked for, but now we're up a creek. Surely there must be some way of recovering this laptop? I don't care about preserving data, we discourage the kids from keeping anything on the devices anyway. I just want to re-image and go home!
I've given up on the mobo, and pulled the screen to repair another laptop I can still boot into. Don't want to toss a 500GB drive though. I'm hoping Dell changes the power supplies soon, then my boss will have no reason to keep ordering them (we have a LOT of power cords, going back to the days of the Lattitude D530).
