Has anyone successfully cracked a Dell laptop HDD password? Share your experience?
I am talking about the Hard drive password, not the BIOS password.

Please elaborate on what do you mean by Laptop HDD password? Do you mean that there is a password set for the HDD in Dell Laptops..?? I am little bit confused, that's the reason why I am asking regarding the same....

1. admin password
2. system password
3. HDD password
1. and 2 are in bios level. You will need 1 to be able to configure bios and 2 for boot into os.
The hdd password resides on hard drive itself. You will need this password to boot to os as well if it was set.
Some one set the HDD password for one of our users as a prank. So the user can not access to her laptop. Since this is a hardware level password, swap hdd or ghost will not work to get databack.
Calling Dell so far is the only option and it appears Dell keeps a backdoor password. However, my persional experience is some time it works and some time it won;t. Last time I talked to two technicians for about 40 minutes and have no resolution. I have to send in the drive for replacement. It would be nice we have a solution get it resolved without hussal.

It;s the same principle as on destop computetrs.
If you do that be asured it will take you some time to find the battery - I've also tried this on a laptop from work.

I run a Dell laptop, how old is it as they normally partition their drives. One, which is a non DOS partition holds the user interface only for the BIOS and all passwords are held in the CMOS/BIOS chip. If it was held on the drive a format of the drive would erase it and this would bypass the whole reason for having it.
The HDD password is on the HDD itself. It is different than the BIOS password. Thanks for replying/

I think that u can never crack HDD password , if u have important data in this disk try to find same disque and change the logic card.
to use the laptop u must got a new Hard drive.
