This is a system board/bios problem relating to the date/time settings and the admin password to access the bios settings.
Try hitting F2 on boot and see if you can get into the bios to set the time/date.

there are some utilities which can remove system passwords but a goo method is to remove all power to the laptop INCLUDING the cmos battery deep inside the machine.

Go here fro a manual

No diagnostic utility partition found to run diagnostics


Think about this for a min.

The Primary hard disk cannot be found by the System.
The Diagnostic Utility is ON the Primary hard disk.....OF COURSE IT WON'T FIND IT...

Since the motherboard is not able to even detect the drive as being present, there is nothing YOU can do to get it 'going' unless you replace the BAD hard drive with a new one.

[PS: I hope you've backed-up any important data....]

Missing boot manager


Unfortunately, this often means a disk problem which has corrupted a key windows file. Dell has a diagnostic partition which will allow you to test your disk.
  1. Ensure that the computer is connected to an electrical outlet that is known to be working properly.

  2. Turn on (or restart) your computer.

  3. When the DELL™ logo appears, press immediately. Select Boot to Utility Partition from the boot menu and press .

note.gif NOTE: If you wait too long and the operating system logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Microsoft® Windows® desktop; then, shut down your computer and try again. note.gif NOTE: If you see a message stating that no diagnostics utility partition has been found, run the Dell Diagnostics from the Drivers and Utilities media.
  1. Press any key to start the Dell Diagnostics from the diagnostics utility partition on your hard drive.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

OK, here is what dell says:

BIOS checksum failure. Possible motherboard failure.

Try re-seating your memory modules and see if the beep code disappears

Also, Try using the Dell Diagnostics which is located on a hidden diagnostic utility partition on your hard drive or on the Drivers and Utilities Cd that came with your computer.

  1. Ensure that the computer is connected to an electrical outlet that is known to be working properly.

  2. Turn on (or restart) your computer.

  3. When the DELL™ logo appears, press <F12> immediately. Select Boot to Utility Partition from the boot menu and press <Enter>.
Press any key to start the Dell Diagnostics from the diagnostics utility partition on your hard drive.

Dell inspiron 6000 will not let me sign into windows at the sign in screen for windows.


The diagnostic check is because the system didn't shut down correctly.
are your the administrator for the laptop?
The administrator password is the password that you put in when you install the operating system, if you did not give it a password, then the administrator password is blank. (Windows Vista requires a password).
you can try "Adminstrator" as password.

the choice is press F8 immediately after the BIOS start up. select "last good configuration" and press enter.
go to the following link and download the utilities if you need.

Dell "Drivers and Utilities" CD


Hi, the "No Diagnostic Utility Partition Found" is returned because your laptop does not find the recovery partition on C drive.
Easiest way to create partition is with dell recovery cd. You can buy CDs from dell, buy finding contact on web site or buy from one of the following.
Dell Restore Disk: XP Pro SP2 for ... $35.00 - DIMOSOL - Digital ...
Dell Latitude D600 XP System Recovery CD ... $18.95 - recovery-cds.com ...
Dell Latitude D600 Vista System Recovery ... $18.95 - recovery-cds.com ...




Buy recovery cd according to windows version on sticker at the back of your laptop.
With recovery CD you wont need drivers.

Alternative solution is downloading drivers posted by Maanita after installing Windows from a generic Windows setup CD.
