In the add or remove programs, click on the change button next to dell media experience. In the second step of the window there is an option to repair and it worked for me.

2 things you can try, On the bottom of the laptop there is a bar code type sticker the will say service tag, go to the dell web site scroll down to drivers and downloads when you click on that link it will give you the options to search by model or service tag. Put in the service tag number of your laptop, next screen should ask for your operating system make sure you have your current one in the box. The drivers and software that where commonly shipped with your model should show up.
Good luck

I do not have the username and password for my new Dell latitude 2120


There are 3 ways for you to reset Dell Latitude password. Let's specify them in 3 parts.

Part 1: Using a Password Reset Disk

When you create Windows user accounts for your Dell Latitude, you can also create a password reset disk at the same time with a USB flash drive or a floppy disk to reset forgotten password afterwards, which means you have to make this tool before you forgot Dell Latitude password. Meanwhile, this password reset disk can reset only local user account password. If you want to unlock dell latitude without password or disk, or your Dell Latitude is on a domain, please refer to Part 3.

Part 2: Reinstalling Windows System

If you have no password reset disk, Dell Latitude will suggest you to reinstall Windows system when you forgot password. However, the cost of reinstallation is huge because all your settings and data in C drive will be lost. If you don't want to lose resources on your Dell Latitude laptop, try the following method.

Part 3: Using Dell Latitude Password Reset (Reset Password without Disk)

If you want to unlock Dell Latitude (d620) without password or disk, Windows Password Recovery (Windows Password Recovery Tool) will be your best choice to access Windows 8.1/8/7/Vista/XP adminitrator in dell . It is specially designed to reset any local or domain account password without system reinstallation when you forgot password and can't log into Windows OS on Dell Latitude laptop. Here is the example of Dell Latitude admin (administrator) password reset. What you need is just a USB flash drive or a blank CD/DVD and an available computer.
Note: The steps to reset other user account password (no matter whether it is a local or a domain one) are the same.
  • Step 1: Download and install Dell Latitude Password Reset on the available computer.
  • Step 2: Insert a USB flash drive or a blank CD/DVD on the computer, specify the burning device, and click "Burn".
  • Step 3: Click "Yes" and "OK" button in the pop-up windows.
  • Step 4: Insert the newly created USB flash drive or CD/DVD on your Dell Latitude and reboot it. Select the Windows installation you want to reset the password, choose "Reset your password" and click "Next".
  • Step 5: Select the administrator account, choose "Remove the password" and click "Next". In the pop-up window, click "Reboot".

Hello, Here is a link to a page on the dell website that you can order the original disks for your system. I think that you can do this for free :) Note: you must have the original shipping address info.
Hope this helps!

Domain ip


hey mary,
Since you bought the system from someone you will need to ask the lady for a password or use the Windows disk and format, reinstall Windows, Drivers and Software into the system. The system may have been on a domain when it was maybe at a business. Hopefully, the lady gave you all the disk that are needed to reinstall windows and drivers as well as any software that came on the system. For an IP you will need to set the computer up on the internet. If you need information on reinstalling windows and drivers you can email me at my email address listed below.
Thank You,

Blue Screen doesn't load Operating System. I beleive there is a software conflict when my daughter downloaded an application she needed for university


If you are getting 'Uncorrectable data Error or Media' for your internal hard drive then it is likely that you have a disk problem rather than a software conflict caused by anything your daughter downloaded.
If the Dell diagnostics provide no solution, then you would need to use a specialist boot CD to try to repair the disk errors. One such disk is Hiren's Boot CD which can be downloaded as a CD image file (.ISO) from http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ then would need to be burnt on to a blank CD then the laptop booted from this CD.
On the initial Hiren's boot menu, select DOS programs, then select Disk tools before selecting HDAT2 to perform the disk repair actions.
HDAT2 can take some time to complete depending on the size of your internal disk drive and the number of bad sectors or other errors encountered - the tool will attempt to repair bad sectors by reading, verifying, writing and re-reading / verifying the data.
If the disk can be recovered, then you may be lucky and the system will be able to boot but otherwise, you may still need to do some further recovery work for the operating system, in which case you may need your Windows install or recovery CD media.

How can i restore my Toshiba A85 Satellite Laptop without recovery disks? I tried pressing 0 (zero) and staring the computer up and then letting 0 go after i hear the beeping, but it didnt work. What else...


Without the recovery disks you will pretty much need to find someone with an OS Disk to reload your laptop. If you know someone with a dell computer they might have a disk you can borrow and reload your laptop that way. I have found it Dell disks to be alot more easier to use when reloading a different makers computer. You will also need to use another computer to download the drivers for your toshiba onto a stick drive so you can be up and running.

Or you can take it into a repair shop and have them do the work which should only cost around an hours worth of labor.

Best of luck..

Factory settings required


Telephone Dell. For a small fee, they will ship you a complete set of "System Restore" CD/DVD disks, to match the Operating System that was factory-installed on your computer.

Or, look on the C: drive for a utility that can "burn" a new set of "System Recovery" disks.

User password lockout


Hard disk password is set from the BIOS. It is usually set in conjunction with the Power On Password. This password is stored on the EEPROM chip and is very difficult to crack - no backdoor passwords. It is used to prevent unauthorized access to the laptop and the data on the hard disk. Removing the hard disk and inserting it into another computer will not allow access to data without the HDD password.

Dell media direct won't work


Hello,

Here is the steps,

1.Turn on your computer.

2.Insert the reinstallation media (Dell Media Direct CD/DVD) into the CD/DVD drive, then restart the computer.

3. press F12 when the bios page comes up and then select CD/DVD drive from the boot menu.

"Option 1" from the menu if you wish to use all of the hard drive for you operating system installation. This is the most common selection and how is your computer was originally shipped to you, unless you specified an operating system partition size at the time you ordered you computer.

"Option 2" to designate a size for your operating system and have a data partition. This allows you to specify a size for the operating system partittion, leaving the remainder, of the hard drive configured as a "data" partition ("D")

4. Once you have prepared the drive and you have returned to the main recovery menu, remove the installation media and replace it with you operating system reinstallation media. Select the option to reboot your computer. If your computer does not automatically start the media, press <F12> to access the boot menu and select the Cd/DVD boot option.

5.Install your operating system, select the Primary partition when prompted. If you have two hard drives, select the primary partition on the same disk where hte media direct partition resides. Once the OS is installed and the necessary drivers are installed you can begin the reinstallation of the dell mediaDirect software.

Good Luck,
Austin
