How do I access the screen that shows BIOS options as I wish to upload UBUNTU 11.04 from a pendrive, so I want to make my first and possibly second BIOS options to be for the pendrive.


At boot time repeatedly pressing either, F2 , F12, or possibly Fn+F1 this is depending upon the bios wether it has been updated or upgraded. One of these should do the trick.....

Dell latitude laptops cpi cpx won boot up just blinks


If you don't get any fans from the CPU spinning, then there is a problem with actually tripping the power supply in the laptop.

The normal boot sequence is as follows:
1. Power is applied, fans spin
2. CPU receives power and then BIOS is checked
3. RAM then is detected and rest of the system components are quickly checked by BIOS
4. Hard drive is checked for boot sector.

Ask somebody to check the laptop to see if the voltage and amperage from the charger is within tolerance. If it is higher than 130% higher than listed in the voltage or more than 15% higher in the amperage, then the laptop is damaged.

If it is within tolerance, then try removing the actual battery first. If this doesn't help, have somebody check the hard drive. If this boots up in another laptop of the same model, then there is a problem with the transformer in the laptop.

Password problem


Hi there.
If the laptop was bought for you as a engagement gift and your friend has proof of purchase then Dell will be able to give you the master password as bios passwords cannot be cracked that easily.
