    What BIOS version? Did you install by way of cold boot from removable media or from within windows?

My computer stays on bios and wont start

Restart your computer
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key
this will vary depending on your computer and operating system

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

hope this helps

I have a Dell Dimension E510 that has a Phillips DVD+RW DVD8801. Windows Media Player will not recognize my burner?

You can solve this problem by updating your driver firmware, dell even recommends it. i have posted a link to the appropriate dell page with the new firmware below. you may also have to restart your computer and/or re-install windows media player for this fix, but update the firmware first. I hope i was helpful.

I need to reset a bios passwoerd on my dell dinention e510 desktop


There are 2 methods doing that (I assume you forgot this password).

1. Hardware (easiest one):
a. Switch off power (plug out power cable or switch off power supply)
b. open your PC box
c. locate CMOS battery on motherboard (the largest part)
it will look exactly like that (round)

d. Just take it out and wait 30 seconds
e. plug it in. BIOS data will reset (password as well)

#2. Sofware
You may use !BIOS to reset bios password. Download + instructions you will find on this website.

Leave rate if I helped you, thanks!!

Just reformatted my dell dimension e510, prob connecting to net

Hi there.
Use the Dell tools system software CD to install the LAN (network) drivers, just pop the CD into the drive and install the CD, once it is installed a new window will pop up giving you an option to install drivers and/or utilities, just look for the LAN or network drivers and restart the PC when prompted the LAN drivers will be installed and you will be able to connect to the internet.
Post back if you have anymore problems.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Dell E510 Memory

One thing worth trying is taking out the cmos battery (only do this if you are confident you know what you are doing on a motherboard). leave the battery out for at least a couple of minutes and then reinstall the battery (ideally with a new one). restart and you may find you have cured the problem and that your old memory was fine. If this doesn't appear to help (definitely replace the battery even if you think it is fairly new)and jump the CLR CMOS pins. (ask again if you need help on this). second to try is see if you can update the bios drivers from the dell site onto a disk on another machine - use as a boot disk and see what you get. after that i would suspect the power pack, there is no real way to test this without connecting it to another motherboard and seeing if it is fine. alternative would be to just replace it with an equivalent unit, they are not too costly. After this i would suspect major motherboard or bios damage, which may be fixable but is usually cheaper to replace the whole board if you have inserted the wrong type(frequency/size/combination) of memory sets into the board it can often cause this sort of trouble, and often a CMOS clr and reset can solve the problem Please let me know if you need talking through the process - (it is not too complicated, but you can cause damage if you do not know what you are doing) Hope this helps :)
