I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Does anyone have experience in installing a Northwood 478 Celeron or Extreme Edition (greater than 2.4 GHz) in this mainboard? I'm pretty certain it's a Dell P/N 9Y422 with a i845D chipset and A12 BIOS.
Thank you and I enjoy reading your comments.

NM, I think I found an answer. But, please correct me if I am wrong. As long as voltages are close and the FSB stays at 400mHz, I should be able to go with the highest clock. Not sure if it was tested that way, but it's the way it looks to me.

hello i have a dell latitude c840 and it is giving me a fit lol.. it will load the bios goes to the windows xp load but then goes to a black screen and just sits there . it will load in safe mode. will not do a system restore tried it a million times. does does anyone know why it is doing this and or how to fix this problem??? PLEASE HELP ME

A:dell latitude c840 windows xp no load

if it loads okay in safe mode it usually means a third-party driver is to blame, and that includes device drivers as well as software which installs a driver, such as a third-party firewall, antivirus package, or cd-burning software.

If you remember installing anything recently which falls into any of those categories, uninstall it in safe mode then try to start Windows normally.

I have a c640 which needs a primary bios password, and it appears to me that with a properly designed jumper wire assembly terminals 3 and 6 of the 24c04 chip can be accessed from the ram cover opening without further disassembly. They appear to be the third pair in. the picture I have from the "dellpass manual" is confusing, as the orientation of the enlarged view of the chip appears to be upside down as compared to the view which locates it. Can anyone who has done it confirm this?
Thanks for any input...

Just call Dell, verify ownership, and they'll issue the master system password you can use to clear the CMOS password.  
The BIOS chip is soldered to the board - so it cannot be removed without de-soldering it.

I got a reply from the website that sells the chips and they identified the right chip for me based on a picture I've send them. In case someone else has the some issue: it's the chip on the back of the mainboard next to the large chip with the label ITE.

A:Dell Latitude D620 BIOS Password

Short answer: You need the original password.
That unit has been refurbished by a Dell-authorized shop (as all with the 595B are) so the restore discs cannot be used.
All of the suggestions your tried, are known not to work in that model... The D600 and D620 are the most difficult of all Dells to fix. You will likely need to replace the motherboard with one known to work. Most of the boards on eBay have the same problems you have.

Anybody done a hardware reset of the bios on one of these machines?
Maybe I can short some pins on the nvram (if I could find it).

I have been digging through endless forums and search engines to try and find a solution to a laptop problem I am having.

It?s a 2nd hand laptop from eBay, a Dell Latitude D600.

What I wanted to do was change the asset information on the splash screen so I got from dell site but it wouldn?t change it as the Configure setup password is enabled and I don?t know what it is.

Do you know a way to get around this so I can change the asset information and remove the configuration password?

Thank you for your time.

A:Dell Latitude 610 Bios Password Request

Rather than start a new thread I hope you don't mind if I join you.

I have a new work laptop and a work issued external cdrom. I need to do some important work but they mis-configured the pc and I cannot connect the drive or my digital camara for the photos. As such I need the admin password, to change the boot order, to change the windows admin password, to enable installation of hardware under my user account. My work's only solution was to send the laptop back for them to rebuild.

Please help me, my service no. B2C3T0J-595B, and my email address is in my profile.

I bought an used E4620, was told that it only needed an administrative password. I then took it to a local repair shop which HA it for three weeks.
They could NOT gain access, I now have it back and still need an administrative password.
There is also the additional problem, that I have attempted multiple times to move ownership to myself but each time I am told that the process has been initiated, when I check back it's not done.

"This computer system # C3CWZ41-595B, is protected by a password
authentication system. You cannot access the data on this computer without the correct password. Please type in the primary or administrator password and press Enter".

Please help me. I shortcircuit the pins 3 and 6 of the CI 24C02, 3 and 7 and 4 and 5 too. Do nothing. Finally changed the chip 24C02 by 24C256N. The Screen message persists.

I have a Dell Latitude D630. It has an admin password for the bios. Nothing is locked except for the settings. I can't change any of the settings in the bios. It lets me boot to windows just fine though. My question is, since I don't know that admin password for the bios, if I upgrade the bios firmware, will the admin password be deleted? Since I'm flashing the bios, I would think that all the settings will be lost. Is that the case?

also...sometimes it even appears normal...for some time...then the vertical lines reappear!!

A:Vertical lines on my Dell Notebook C840

Since you experience this on an external monitor also, I'm thinking a hardware problem - your onboard video card.

If you haven't already, try running your computer in "SAFE MODE" (Pressing F8 several times upon booting until you are directed to the screen that allows you to choose: "SAFE MODE." If the problem goes away in safe mode, it's most likely a driver issue, and not your hardware.
