Question about Dell Inspiron 8000 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a dell computer that I purchased used. It worked fine until about a month ago. When you start it up it comes up with a gray screen and asks for a bios password. I called dell and refuse to help me because I am not the original purchaser of the laptop. Can anyone help me with fixing this? Is there a universal master password?

Im sorry but bios passwords are set by the owner of the computer, probably the guy you bought it from. see online for a boot password resetter.

Have you tried starting windows using the safe mode, and if it does start up in the safe mode, did you try to restore your system to a previous date that it was working properly. Sometimes when you have your kind of problem, even though several months have past, the calender for restore is lock too at the time your system went down. this gives you the opportunity to restore to a date close to when your system failed.
Before you try restore, make sure you do not have a virus that has corrupted you system, run a virus scan first. If you haven't done so I suggest downloading Malwarebytes anti-malware that is free online, it works very well, and Microsoft uses it for there systems.
I hope this is helpful, good luck, I hope you don't have to purchase the setup CD.

Normally when you purchase a computer most of them come with the trail version of office 2007 / 2010 which would be valid for 60 day but as you are saying it was working for 14 months then your computer has come with a full version of office 2007 i would suggest you to check with the disc which came along when you purchased the computer they might have come with a product key of office 2007 & if you are able to find the media /CD then you can call microsoft and they would be generating a new product key based on the part number which is on the back of the CD.
If you do not have the CD / Media then you have to purchase the software or you can download a cracked version of office 2007 from the below link and use the product key

Vertical lines on my lcd laptop screen


It's the connector problems.
If you know what to do, I can guide you:

First, remove the screw all over the LCD case, then you can see the connector, and flexible cables.
Second, remove the keyboard unit(by removing all screw on the unit), after removed, find the edge of the LCD cables, then you can see the connector.

The solution:
1.Try clean this two connector with soft brushes ( paint brush is good ), by removing the cable first,then clean the flexible connector using wet tissue ( use the alcohol ).

2. If still exist, you need to replace the flexible with new ones.
