First off is there two passwords one for bios one for gaining access to the O/s ?

If its a system startup password basically you need to take the battery out for a minute and replace ( Easier to do on desktops )
or Flash the bios can't promise that would work or be easy on a laptop either. Would have to google that.

Bought used dell vostro 1700, wasnt told about the bios password.


Hi Jonnymac93,
the fastest way to clear a password would be to remove the cmos / bios battery. The manual for the Vostro 1700 can be found at the following link;
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/vos1700/en/OM/pdf/TT565A01MR.pdf
If you prefer the manual in htm, click this next link & choose htm format listed on the site;
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/vos1700/en/index.htm
Go to page 182 & 183 for instructions. The manual call this, Removing the Coin-Cell Battery.

Also here is notebooks driver site for the 1700;

Good luck Johnny!
Run into trouble, post back.

Dell Vostro 1700 won't startup - woman in need of help!!! :'(


Don't choose safe mode.

If you have in the F8 options, a Recovery Console select that and run at the command prompt:

chkdsk /r

That will look for and repair disk errors.

Otherwise, look for and select Restore my computer, from this F8 menu.

Failing that you will need a copy of Vista or XP but if you have a 64bit OS like Vista64 you will need a copy of that.

Let me know what happens. But, I won't be online for much longer so I'll send a message to a friend of mine in Ireland who can help you further since he's in a different time zone.

Regards,
Worldvet
