If hard drive encrypted / locked or bios locked then you will need to contact dell and give them your asset tag and they will be able to generate a backdoor password you can use to get back into the bios and then you can reset or disable the passwords / encryption.

If password for windows then you can use trinity rescue kit

Which will allow you to reset the passwords and other things.

If its just a case of wanting a fresh install of the operating system then get the installation disc for the operating system and re install.

You should be able to get one from ebay or elsewhere.

I just bought a DELL latitude C 840 and the passwords are locked and I need to unlock them .My service tag is BV4Q421-595B


You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program. Click on one of these links to download HIREN'S BOOTCD :- http://www.hirensbootcd.net/ http://67.20.82.163/

How do I replace the keyboard on a Dell Latitude D360? I have the new keyboard, just not sure what steps I need to take to install the new one.


I believe you refer to Dell Latitude D630 not D360 as I did not find the latter among the models.
As for the Dell Latitude D630, please refer to the following section of this model's service manual:

How to unlock the key pad on a dell latitude D600 laptop


Hi. Please do troubleshooting steps below:

1. Check to be sure your "Number Lock" or "Function Lock" keys aren't lit. These can lock out certain parts of your keyboard. If either of these is lit, press them to unlock the locked portion of your keyboard. These can be found at the top right on a laptop and between the number pad and main keys on a desktop keyboard.

2. Save all open programs using your mouse. Use your mouse to restart your computer. This will only work if your computer isn't frozen. If your mouse doesn't move, press the power button on your Dell until the computer turns off. Press it again to restart. If the issue was lack of memory or a locked program, this will unlock your keyboard. Continue to Step 3 if the keyboard is still locked.

3. Shut down your computer using your mouse or power button. Don't restart. Unplug your Dell.

4. Remove the battery if you're using a laptop by turning the laptop over and sliding the battery release latch. Slide the battery out and replace after one minute.

Have a good one!

    I bought a dell inspiron laptop and the service tag is missing. the computer is locked how can i unlock it


    You can refer to the purchase receipt to get the service tag of the Computer. if the computer is locked means windows is not booting then perform system recovery using the recovery discs to reinstall the Operating system, drivers, application, etc.
    If the BIOS is locked then contact the Dell support team to get it unlocked.

    Can I connect my dell latitude d360 laptop to my tv?


    When you connect the VGA cable to the TV you will need to hit the FN button + F5 on your keyboard, that will change the dispalys from internal to external. if you hit FN+F5 again you can have both the laptop and the TV screen on.
