This sounds like either a HARDDRIVE PASSWORD or a SYSTEM PASSWORD. Especially if the prompt appears every time you turn on the PC. If this is the case, all I can say is that you should write down the exact message and call up or chat with Dell Technical Support since they are the only one's who can give you a password for that.
If the password you're talking about is the Windows logon password, then I would recommend that you find someone who has an administrator logon, and from there you can actually remove the password of your account. You can also go into Safe Mode, then log into the Administrator account, and from there remove the password on the account you are using.
Hope this helps!

Will your laptop start if the battery is removed and the power supply is plugged into the laptop? This would indicate a battery problem.
Make sure you are using the correct power supply for the DELL D610.
It should be PA-12 family. Model AA22850.Output 19.5V.

I run the manufacturing operations for a small engineering firm (100 people). We utilize Dell D610 Laptops in mfg. I buy them used (ebay) for roughly $250 each. The bottom line is that at this price -- these laptops are disposable. If they fail on us (like your failure mode) -- we chuck them.
We use an awesome program called Acronis True Image. We have a "master" mirror image of all the programs that we use in mfg for these laptops. Basically -- when a "new/used" laptop shows up (From ebay) -- we do the following:
1. Boot up on the Acronis Bootup CD (this is basically the Linus operating system that has the Acronis restore program on it)
2. We load an image from a connected external USB harddrive (Acronis recognizes all of these) using the Acronis restore prrogram. You can also have an Acronis image of your harddrive on the harddrive itself (i.e. if you have a 60 or 80 gb harddrive -- you can define an Acronis image on about 20 gb of it and make an image of your image and store it there. Then -- if Bill Gates some how hoses your computer -- you restore the image from the harddrive (protected) rather than some external usb connected harddrive).
3. Anyway -- continuing -- we then boot up the computer and change the computer name (since it has the same id as the image). We have a corporate network and all computer names must be unique. This is not required for home use.
For those of you with computers/laptops that have not crashed -- run (don't walk) to get Acronis True Image and also make your Boot Up CD and a good image of your harddrive. For my own personal computers - I have an external image on a USB harddrive as well on the harddrive iteself. You are now protected from any kind of crash. Period. I keep critical files on the harddrive and on a USB key on your keychain (two copies of the file) or upload them to an email that I send to myself. Computers are so important now adays that you should just plan on having two computers (one that you use and one as a backup). Time is important to me at work so if I have a computer failure -- I have moved my harddrive (or loaded my image to computer #2) and been back up and running in less than an hour. Others at work do not have this philisophy and when they have computer issues -- they are down for a day. What a bummer...
If you already have the blue screen of death -- this may be from a hardware issue or software issue. In my experience it is about 70 percent hardware/30 percent software.
I've gotten "lucky" a few times by opening up computers and reseating the memory in them. These sometimes come loose.
For those with a techy guy in the shop -- we have found that we have solved blue screen of death issues by failed capacitors on the motherboard. There are some cheap capacitors being used out there in the computer world. With time -- they go bad. This is recognized by the fact that they are "swollen." Our techy guys remove the motherboard and solder in "good" capacitors and we are up and running. This has worked many, many, many times!!
An alterhate to these two methods is to jump on ebay and buy a used computer/laptop that is as close to your configuration. Like I said before -- a Dell D610 is about $250/each. When this arrives -- you swap out the harddrive and with luck (if the issue is hardware other than your harddrive) - you are up and running. I've done this several times and saved the day - i.e. we have standard computers at work -- (SX280 and GX280) as well as standard laptops (D610 with a plan now to migrate to D830 in the future as they are dual processor).
Hope this helps.
