Question about Dell Latitude C600 Notebook

1 Answer

Dell not booting

Same problem as mentioned in August. Tried a new HDD in it and I got the white screen with blue letters. Indicates "computer is protected by a password authentication system. Cannot access data without correct password."

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do a Google Search for "LATITUDE.EXE" which is a DOS program that will reset your password. You will find various sites and forums explaining how to download and run this file.

The other option is to call DELL. However you must prove that you are the legitimate owner of the laptop.

Hope this helps!

When i turn my d257 acer aspire one on it goes to blue screen asking for a password, or it either goes to a screen that says no boot disk


No Boot disk found - usually indicates the HDD is not located.
so you need to validate the HDD is inserted properly, and locked into the HDD slot. securely,
Blue Screen asking for password, could mean several things,
basically you need with both errors, take to a good Repair Tech and have this looked into... PASSWORD can be either for BIOs or HDD,
or the system went into LOCKED MODE and password is needed to UNLOCK it.

My dell d610 is asking for a hdd password. what would it be there is no password for this computer?


HDD password? Is the laptop encrypted? Unless it s a system password set in the BIOS. You'll have to know what that is or reset it.
Reseting the BIOS requires taking apart the laptop and finding the CMOS battery and shorting it.

I have a Dell Inspiron Mini, and everything was working fine until last Friday i tried turning it on and it as it loaded it went directly to a black screen with white letter and asked me how I wanted to...


Looks like your master boot record is corrupted or you have a bad hard drive. Without cd drive there is one option but it is not guarantied it will work. You can acctually make USB flash drive bootable but you need another computer with cd drive and an XP Operating System CD. You can google how to make usb flash drive bootable for XP and it will give you step by step instructions. Or you can borow an external cd drive or take it to pc repair store. Good luck.

Booting problem, blue screen comes with so many words and automatically restarts. not entering into normal mode


The blue screen is BSOD(Blue Screen Of Death). this happens due to some technical problem in HDD or due to bad sectors in memory. Its time to change the HDD, backup important data and files before its too late.
