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.

Invalid configuration information


Start your computer and after the BIOS screen disappers , begin rapidly pressing PF8 until the Windows Boot Options appear. You should see "Safe Mode", "Boot from last valid configuration", and "Normal Mode", and maybe a few others. Select "Last Valid Configuration." Computer should sucessfully boot.

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.

Hi,

The CMOS/BIOS battery has died and needs replacing.

The battery is located on the motherboard inside the case of the computer.

To replace the battery you'll have to open the case up and replace the battery. It looks like this >>>

Once you have replaced this battery and restarted your computer you will need to access the BIOS to set the date, time and also tell the computers BIOS that the floppy drive is not there and to set the boot order of the computer.

Once you have done all this you should not get that message again for a good few years.


Regards.

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.

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.
