Dude, Can you send me a Bootable ISO CD of Dell Asset/Service Tag BIOS Reset Tool........Please


Hello, you can download this tool here:

Dell

The official method is to contact Dell Technical Support. Dell Technical Support will request the Service Tag and Express Service Code from the bottom of the Latitude. If the current user is not the original Latitude owner, Dell will transfer the used Latitude's registration from the original owner with only the Service Tag and Express Service Code from the tag on the laptop.

  • Dell Optiplex: Remove the PSWD jumper
  • For most Dell Dimension desktops, the steps to reset a BIOS password and clear all CMOS settings are:
    • Locate the 3-pin CMOS password reset jumper on the system board.
    • Remove the jumper plug from pins 1 and 2.
    • Place the jumper plug on pins 2 and 3 and wait approximately 5 seconds.
    • Replace the jumper plug on pins 1 and 2.

Try the backdoor password: Dell

The another method is: by Using the Motherboard Jumper: In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off, and remove the battery and power cord
( if it is a laptop ) before you continue.

Here is a picture how it looks like:

The default setting is:pin 1 to 2, to clear cmos: 2 to 3.

Best of luck :-)

My bluetooth device for dell latitude e6500 series is not working


Try installing the latest driver.
You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, thesupport download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operatingsystem. Click on this link to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

Hi I have a D420 its a small one thats what i like about it i also have a d620 but i wanted to upgrade my d420 with something to make it a little faster like a processor upgrade ...? im not sure about the...


Hi,

Your thoughts are breaking up as you are typing.

You stated;
1) I have a Dell Latitude D420 and a Latitude D620.
The D420 is small, that's what I like about it.

I want to make my D420 faster, is there a possible Processor upgrade?
I'm not sure about the specifications of the motherboard, so I do not know if this is possible.

I know I can get an SSD Harddrive,............the rest is illegible to me.

A) The D420 keeps going slow.

Question: After what?
After you installed an SSD harddrive? After you flashed the BIOS?


B) Was fast when I flashed it.

Question: Flashed the BIOS?
Why?
Why do people always rush to try to upgrade their BIOS program with a flash, when they do not know if it will help, or not?
One mistake and you have a dead laptop. Use it for a paperweight.

When you upgrade the BIOS you have the option to save the original, so you can go back to it in case there is trouble.
Did you?

Post back in a Comment.


While I wait.
To upgrade to a better Processor you need to know;

1) What Processor socket is on the motherboard

2) What is the motherboard chipset, and specifically, what is the Northbridge chip of the motherboard chipset.


To explain;

The motherboard chipset is the Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip.

(For the Dell Latitude D420 motherboard. This does not apply to motherboards that support the Intel Core i3, i5, i7, or i9 processors)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

{Note*
CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short. Does Not mean Personal Computer}

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit

The Northbridge chip is so aptly name because for one, it sits on the motherboard to the North, or top of the motherboard. Generally right under the Processor socket.

The Northbridge chip handle the Processor, Ram Memory, and High speed graphics.

{High speed graphics being AGP, or PCI Express. Not a graphics card installed into a PCI slot, nor Integrated Graphics. {Integrated Graphics, OnBoard graphics, same/same}


The motherboard chipset is an Intel 945GMS,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core.2FCore_2_Mobile_Chipsets

(Part number printed on the Northbridge chip is Intel 82945GMS. Part number on the Southbridge chip is Intel 82801GBM)

The Northbridge chip supports Processors with up to a 667Megahertz Front Side Bus. (667MHz FSB)

Will support Processors with either a 533MHz FSB, or a 667MHz FSB.
667MHz FSB being the maximum it will support.

The processor socket is a Socket M.

I have a dell latitude d600, a few years old, want to know if I can purchase a card to add an HDMI port


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814129128&nm_mc=OTC-Froogle&cm_mmc=OTC-Froogle-_-Video+Cards-_-VisionTek-_-14129128

this card is not compatable with your motehr baord but it will give you a place to start searching for one, the idea is a pci express card is not going to be compatable with the cpi port your best bet is to get a really cheap but well desinged motehrbaord for about 30 bucks or 50 bucks with pci express buss good luck with your venture.
