Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook

Inspiron e1505 bios/cd boot help

So, I have a complicated problem, but an easy fix with some creativity. First, this laptop has a burned-out tube so the screen is completely blank, however, I have been using a tv as an external monitor to remedy. UNTIL... The computer got a virus that will not allow me to start windows, so I am reinstalling. The problem: the tv does not display my bios at boot (only displays after windows loads) so I need pictures of this version of bios so that I can select boot from cd essentially in the dark. Or someone who knows how many times I need to hit up and down, when to select function keys, which ones, etc.

Also, I am worried that I will not be able to see the windows installation cd prompts for similar reasons when I attempt to reinstall. If anyone thinks that will be an issue and has any recomendations that would be exellent.

Dell inspiron e1505 laptop need master reset code


Should this be a Bios password, you will need to have this taken into a shop, Should it be a windows password Google password recovery CD.

A windows password can be hacked, A bios password will take some time.

I was looking for step-by-step install guide to putting new hard drive and loading Windows XP on my Dell Inspiron E1505?? I purchased a WD 320GB SATA hard drive to replace my dead 80gb hard drive....Dell...


All you've got to do is:

1) Insert the new hard drive.
2) Press the F8 key as the laptop boots. This will take you into the BIOS.
3) Locate the disk drive priority setting in the bios.
4) Set Priority 1 to your CD/DVD drive and priority 2 to the 320GB hard drive.
5) Save settings and exit the BIOS. This should reboot your laptop.
6) Insert the Windows XP CD.
7) It should not start the setup as it recognises the CD.
8) I will recommend that you format the drive before you install, go along with the format (make sure it does a full format).
9) After the format it will reboot your system.
10) You will be prompted with a message like "Press any key to boot form CD", DON'T press anything otherwise it will start all over again.
11) Now it should start the install. Follow the on-screen instructions.

When I turn on my Laptop the Dell Inspirer E1505 it says A Disk Read error occured Press Ctrl + Alt + Dell to restart then i restarted the computer i pressed F2 and the BIOS setting came up i went to...


It's asking you for a password to access the BIOS. You or someone entered a password to access the BOIS (setup screen). The original problem you're having is "Disk Read Error". If you have the CD's that came with your laptop, look for a Resource CD or any that has "Utilities and Diagnostics" under "Contents". This is a CD that you can boot from. Insert the CD and select <F12> on power on. Select boot from CD/DVD disk. If the laptop boots then your laptop is working but your hard disk drive or OS (Operating system software) is the problem.

0F00:136C IDE device failed:blank media or no media is present in optical drive


read failure of the CD\DVD drive. If you were running diagnostics and have no readable media in the drive, that is a NORMAL result.
If you have readable media in the drive, try reseating the drive and try to read again. If the media is not a factory burned CD, try a factory burned one.
See if you can boot to an Windows CD.
If all the above fail, then likely a drive failure, replace the drive

Try removing both memory sticks and then booting up with just one installed. The bios should notice a shift in the amount of memory and prompt you to enter the bios.

Let me know if that works.

Forgot my password


well there are a few ways of going about it. Simplest way i found to do this is download a program called Ophcrack http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/download.php?type=livecd and use windows to burn the ISO file to a cd. When you boot your computer press F10 to get into a boot menu and boot from the CD. all the program to do what it has to do and it will provide you with the password in about 5 minutes.
