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

Dell latitude E/6400 blank screen worked yesterday


run the dell diagnostic by turning the laptop on and tapping F12 key when you see the Dell logo
keep pressing F12 to enter the Boot Menu
* When the boot device list appears, highlight Diagnostics and press Enter
* The computer begins to run the Pre-boot System Assessment, a series of embedded diagnostics that perform initial testing on your system board, keyboard, hard drive, and display
* If the Pre-boot System Assessment completes successfully, you receive the message Booting Dell Diagnostic Utility Partition
* Press any key to continue
* Press any key to start the Dell Diagnostics from the Diagnostics utility partition on your hard drive
* After the Dell Diagnostics loads and the Main Menu screen appears, click the button for the option you want to run -
Express Test = Performs a quick test of devices. The test typically takes 10 to 20 minutes and requires no interaction on your part
Extended Test = Performs a thorough check of devices. The test typically takes 1 hour or more and requires you to answer questions periodically
Custom Test = Tests a specific device. You can customize the tests to be run
Symptom Tree = Allows you to select tests based on a symptom of the problem you are experiencing
* When you have finished running a test, close the screen to return to the Main Menu screen. To exit the Dell Diagnostics and reboot the computer, close the Main Menu screen

during the test it will beep and display colored bars then ask your if the colored bars were displayed. to press Y for yes and N for no

this test the graphics/video chip on the computer to see if the hardware is working.

You can also connect it to an external monitor like a monitor that comes with a pc.Then press and hold the "FN" key and press the F8 (CRT/LCD) key to toggle the external monitor. if the image is displayed in the monitor then it can be a lcd screen or lcd inverter in laptop.

hope that helps

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....]

After i instul windows7 ultimate on partition cthe sond is stoped


Restart the computer and tap the f12 key as soon as it starts to boot up .
2. Select 'Diagnostic' from the boot menu. The computer will run its pre-boot assessment tests (PSA) before Dell Diagnostics starts. During the PSA you will hear some tones through the system speaker (but not through the headphone jack) but this does not adequately test the audio hardware. Dell Diagnostics plays an instrumental piece of music complete with drums, so if you only hear some tones then you have only run the PSA.
3. Dell Diagnostics should open after the PSA tests, or you should see an option to open it. If you have ever reformatted your entire hard drive then Dell Diagnostics will no longer be there as an option. In that case run it from the Drivers and Utilities (Resource) CD if you have one.
4. Select 'Custom', then the audio tests. (At this point - after you have opened Dell Diagnostic custom - if you can't find the option to select the audio tests that is a symptom of a failed audio chip.)
5. The tests will run. Alternate between using headphones and listening to speakers in case only one signal path is working.
The tests will play some audio and ask you whether you heard it.
6. If you don't hear the music during the test it definitely means there is a hardware failure somewhere in the system. In this case Dell will repair the computer if it is still under warranty.
7.If you do hear the audio during the test but not when you boot back into Windows, that almost always means the hardware is okay but there is a problem with the audio driver or with Windows.
8. Error codes: If you answer 'no' to any question that the test asks you, the test generates an error code that can tell a Dell technician that you answered 'no' to that question. The test does not know the exact component that has gone bad. Before answering 'no' to a question, make note of the circumstances at that point so you will know in general what the error code means.

Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop - StartUpProblem=UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUM


OK simply your hard drive has failed... You need to get a new one, and install it, in the laptop after taking the old one out. Then you will have to install an Operating System. & Drivers all again. You could download all of that from the Net.

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.
