I am trying to reset the BIOS Config Password (hitting F2 and going into setup) so I can disable my internal wireless device.  I am having some issues with an error with my wireless that is not allowing the system to boot properly.

I have gone through Dell and transferred ownership but have been on hold for like 40 mins while the tech was "looking for a comparable device to troubleshoot the problem".

I do not want to reset the jumpers, take out the CMOS battery, or anything else that may mess up the laptop.  I found a few password generators on the web that can get the password based off of the express service code and/or service tag number.  I am skeptical about downloading the latitude.exe file because of viruses and what not.

Express Service Code:     29677349053
Service Tag:                      dmt4l31

Dell Latitude D600

I just would like someone with the program downloaded to plug in my numbers and feedback the generated password.  Thanks!

I would suggest just calling Dell back to open another ticket. Some support techs are better than others. Better yet just start a chat session. That way you can be doing other things while you wait and you don't need to tie up your phone. I believe that they have some way to generate a master password based off of your system information once they have determined that the ownership transfer has been completed and that you are the correct owner.
