Bios admin password for Dell Latitude D510
Posted on 2009-04-26
Hi All, this is not simply a bios admin password crack question although that seems to be difficult judging from the solutions I have searched.
I have been given (honest) an ex NHS laptop that has been cleared out of a doctors surgery as part of upgrade. It works fine and I have the passwords to get into XP and use it as a stand alone laptop.
Here is the rub, The wireless card has been disabled in the bios by a concientious technician and protected by a bios admin password.
Question 1, can I enable the wireless card outside of the bios?
Question 2, failing that can I simply use a USB wireless adaptor. Incidentally I can run and install programs from either a USB stick or the CD drive.
