If the system still works on an external monitor and functions normally otherwise, you might be able teo replace the LCD assy for about $150.

If the system no longer works on external either, then I'd say the system is no longer viable as an item to repair as it will be cheaper to replace it then to repair it. (New laptops start at around $500)

It has an administrator password and i need help unlocking it


Do you have another computer with a CD burner? If so, use the Offline Windows Password & Registry Editor, it allows one to reset or change account passwords. You can find the tool here: http://www.pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/

Remove Administrator Password from Bios ver A06 Dell Latitude 500 GT.


When a laptop BIOS is locked with password, a checksum of that password is stored to a sector of the FlashROM - this is a chip on the mainboard of the device which also contains the BIOS and other settings.
For most brands, this checksum is displayed after entering an invalid password for the third time. (For Dell laptops only the service tag # is needed.)
using this number a randomly generated password can be calculated. Which is the reason this number is displayed and is the way the manufactures tech support calculates a password. We use the same method to calculate a password for your laptop www.bios-unlock.com

I have a problem with dell latitude cpx h 500 when I want to get into the bios gets blocked


I would recommend connecting an external keyboard to the laptop and seeing if you can access the BIOS pages. It seems the keys are preventing you from doing so. The keyboard could be damaged.

The CMOS battery is on the motherboard of the laptop. If you can access it w/o damaging anything, you could reset the CMOS settings (clearing CMOS) and the password will no longer be valid. Hope this helps.

I have Dell Latitude CPx laptop,when it is powered on it gives the message, This computer system ,#8IT1F88-595B ,is protected by a passward autentication system.You cannot access the data on this computer...


The BIOS password has been set. You have to find the chip that holds the password and short it out. Not the easiest of tasks and you have to make sure you short the right chip. Dell knows that it happens and they are not quick to help.

How do i change my dell latitude cpx to english?


The computer BIOS is in english.
The operating system you have installed might not be a english one.
You need to reformat your computer using a english
version of Windows Xp and install this to your laptop.

Now you have your computer in english!!!
This will work!
This is my solution! Please vote!!!

Boot up problem


Sounds like a loose connector, or a cracked board in the area of the power supply. You'll have to go inside the covers to find out.
