The password issue will require you to contact Dell Technical Support for a Master Password (this will require you to prove that you are an authorized user). 800-624-9896

The error message will require a reinstallation of Windows and may be an indication of a failing hard drive.

Please run setup invalid configuration information


If this error message comes up when you boot up the computer, it means the BIOS requires configuration, usually the Time and Date is wrong.
If this occurs every time you boot up your computer and have changed the Date and Time then this could be caused by a flat BIOS battery.
If so, replace the BIOS battery and then configure the Date and Time and you won't get this error again.

Invalid configuration information-please run SETUP program


Here is what you do, go into the BIOS setup, usually you press the DEL key OR F2 or whatever your one is, IT should say on screen as it boots up.... it says "Press YOUR- KEY Key for SETUP". So, get into setup, using your manual ensure it is set correctly. Then SAVE SETTING and exit All should be good now.

Dell Ispriron E1505 has a display message, invalid configuration information Please run setup program but won't go into setup. Machine goes to preparing setup menu and then screen goes grey and machine...


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.
