SOURCE: How do I reset my Dell Optiplex 360 to factory

back up all of your data(music,documents,videos)before you do this..if you can't boot up then use ubuntu,slax or other types of bootable cds. also be sure to download the drivers from dell.com put them on a flash drive just in case automatic updates don't get it to set it back to the factory setting you are going to have to get a xp installation(asuming it is xp,or what ever disk came with your comp)the disk should say operating system on it.what you do is put the disk in and boot off of it.if this message don't come up 'press any button to boot from cd......' then your going to have to go into the bios and change the cd drive before the harddrive.if the message does come up hit any button and wait for the blues screen.after it is loaded hit enter f8.if a screen says existing operating systems hit esc(on that screen there is a option to repair the os but you have to know th command lines to do so).if not and it goes to the partion screen then delete the existing partion and create a new one.to do so go to the partion and (delete)hit d L enter.(create)c enter. after you have formed a new partion hit enter....it will format the drive(delete everything)after it is done formatting it will start to instal the os.in xp it will stop 2 times for your input.after everything is done loading you should be able to custamize everything and install things.in the bottom right hand cornor there should be a marker telling you to activate windows.click it and use the product key on the side of your comp(laptop under it)if there is none there try keyfinder.i will email it to you if you can't find .also be aware that you have to reinstall office, antivirus and other programs. so make sure you have all of the cd's.

SOURCE: my dell optiplex gx520 has

the reason why windows won't reconize it as a boot drive is because you have to format the harddrive to NTFS. You have to connect it as a secondary drive on another machine and format it. To do this you have to
click on start, right click on 'computer' and click on 'manage'. Once on 'computer management' click on 'disk management' and select the disk you want to format, right click on it can click 'format'.
Hope this helps.

How to disable HDD Bios password in dell Optiplex 990?


The easy way to clear the bios password and reset bios is to take out the bios battery and start computer for about 10 seconds and then turn it back off and replace the battery. When you turn it back on you may need to go into the bios and reset everything the way you want it, and don't forget to rest the time and date.

You are welcome

How do I delete or reset a new system password, and a HDD password so that I can set a administrator password on a optiplex 390 i5 window 7.?


If you do not have the current passwords, it's going to be a bit of a problem. The BIOS password mostly. Contact Dell Support: http://www.dell.com/us/business/p/optiplex-390/pd Perhaps they will give you a one-time BIOS password. If it's a login password, you could try a Full Factory Recovery. If someone put the passwords in , I would ask them, that's the easiest way.

My dell optiplex doesn't boot... but i can hear the sound (not beeping) and the spinning hard disk. Nothing is in the screen. I tried removing and exchanging RAM but didn't work.


Hello,

The possible causes that can cause a PC not to boot are:

  1. Defective RAM
  2. Defective Video Card
  3. Defective HDD
  4. BIOS battery
For the RAM and for the video card, check if they are well clipped on the motherboard. Try removing and replacing them.

As for the HDD, check the SATA/IDE cables.

If all the steps above seems to be ok, try changing the BIOS battery found on your motherboard.(Note this will reset your BIOS settings).

Hope this helps you !!

I lost all password for dell desktop optiplex computer bios password hard drive password cmos password


Lots of sites say to move the PSWD jumper (on the motherboard) from pins 1&2 to pins 3&4, or something like that. However on my Optiplex 360 I found that the PSWD jumper had only 2 pins. By trial and error I found that removing the jumper from these two pins while the system was off allowed me to boot the system with BIOS password disabled. I was then able to change BIOS settings (and install Linux - yeah!!).
