Connect these pins together by soldering thin insulated wires to the following pins :- 1-5-10, 2-11, 3-17, 4-12, 6-16, 7-13, 8-14, 9-15 Plug the dongle in the printer port and boot up the laptop, you will then be able to bypass the BIOS password and go into the BIOS to reset/remove the password.

it would depend on the door knob construction and what was stiff inside it.
The problem could be part of the handle or part of the lock mechanism.
For a typical indoor door lever handle, undo the screws on the face plate and take the handle off and oil as appropriate. You may have oil handles on both sides of the door.
For a rotating door knob handle there is generally a single screw on the underside of the knob
For a lock mechanism, you could just spray oil inside the mortise moving part (you wouldn't have to dismantle anything to do this!).
However to dismantle it, you'll need to remove handles on both sides of the door, remove the square bar that slots between both handles and remove the lock mechanism (you may have to remove locating screws that exist on the mortise face. If lock mechanism is user serviceable then there will be screws to undo to allow it to be dismantled. If none exist then it is probably worth buying a new one.
Motherboards don't have a driver per say. They do have something called a BIOS.
Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "ToshibaSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the BIOS drivers. This is called Flashing the BIOS
Not quite sure what you mean by "On/Off light" but I'm assuming you mean the laptop appears to switch on.
This problem sounds like it's an issue with either the bios or the cpu. It's a fairly common problem for the bios to go "bad", possibly through a bad bios flash, needing either a clear of the cmos, or reflashing (more likely a new bios chip.
The cpu issue is rather more unlikely unless the laptop has been dismantled and the cpu socket unlocked.
Solutions to this problem require dismantling of the laptop, so unless you know what you're doing, I'd recommend taking it to a repair centre.
I assume you have already tried the Dell site & searched (using eg google) for 'Inspiron 8600 BIOS reset' so I'll not bother repeating your efforts.
Since you posted here, I can only assume you have been unable to find any information about special power-on key combinations or any small holes underneath (where a paperclip can be used to reset the BIOS) ... in which case your only option is to dismantle the laptop, locate the BIOS battery and remove it for 30 seconds or so.
To find out how to dismantle the laptop, search (google) for 'Inspiron 8600 BIOS Battery replacement' ....
If you've lost the bios password, you'll probably have to 'flash' the bios. If you feel comfortable enough, you can dismantle the laptop and remove the motherboard battery for several minutes, then replace it and reassemble the system, see if the password has been cleared. (Note: The motherboard battery is NOT the laptop battery; you have to remove both!)
I solved that problem with unpluging every kind of connectors (Usb..) Shuting completly down. Unplug the powersupply and restart the whole system. After that, go to BIOS and see the SATA Option, set to compatible and not ASHC(or whatever its called). After the BIOS Update some of my BIOS settings were changed.
