Question about Dell INSPIRON 15 Notebook
After turning computer on. it shows time and date.it locks up after I type my password. Nothing else happens. It says welcome, and I can't do anything else. It does show the curser, but the screen doesn't show and nothing appears, so I can't do anything to open it.
Try reinstalling operating system from back up cd. If that do not resolve the problem, contact a good pc hardware engineer or chiplevel service engineer. They can solve the issue. Hope it helps

SOURCE: adminstrator password problem
If this is a white and grey screen, before windows starts, it's a system board password. To clear this you will need to contact dell, have your service tag and express code ready, and if you haven't already, you will need to register ownership with Dell. I posted a link at the bottom for phone numbers of Dell's support. Dell is great in the fact that they have a master code for each of their machines.
However, if this is a windows password, which I don't believe it is, you will need to start windows in safe mode by pressing F8 at start up. Then log in under administrator and clear passwords in each user account.
Here's the link, the phone numbers are about half way down the page. You'll just need to give them a call, it won't take very long, I've done it a several times with Dell machines I've purchased at auctions.

SOURCE: Erratic curser, jumping
Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for mice and pointing devices, click the '+' sign and right click on your touchpad and select uninstall, do the same on the keyboard line and then restart the pc.
Both touchpad and keyboard will be reinstalled and then ready to use again as it should be back to normal

If the keyboard is locked ALL the time, try unpluging the power supply, remove the battery, then push and hold the power button and any key on the keyboard for at least 30 seconds. then reinstall the battery, plug the pwoer cord back in and reboot it.
I had the same problem and that is what the DELL techs had me do. I had the problemm frequently for a while and then it just quit recurring. I haven't had the problem for a long time now.
I hope this helps.

you can search for a password boot disk which will disable the administrator password.
There are dozens of these types of programs but one program I recommend is windows password reset 6.0
Download the iso file and burn it to a disk to create the boot disk,
that simple. Configure your pc or laptop to boot in the cd drive,
insert the CD and it would boot then just disable the password and
Took about 5 minutes for the whole process.

SOURCE: Inspiron 6400 doesn't start.
On Flash Flash indicates that no RAM memory is being detected. So remove both RAM modules, insert 1 at a 30 deg angle till the gold contacts cannot be seen, then lock it in place, and see if the RAM is detected. Test both modules in both slots, see if system will boot with at least one. If no change, try a new RAM module, if still no change, replace the motherboard

detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and
time on the right hand side box. Select that date.
Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.
Just try this and leave a feedback for next steps.
