I have a dell inspiron 531s. it is freezing off and on. it would work well for a day then it would just freeze, not responding to the mouse or keyboard. i have reformated the hard drive change the memory...


I had the same issue. I upgraded to Windows 7 and things did work allot better but the hanging still occured. I ran system mechanic and found there was a drive problem. This was repared by the program.
The problem occured again last night and the system will not boot past the dell splash screen. I am thinking it might be the motherboard that is a fault. Mine is out of its 12 month warranty, so no way to get Dell to investigate further. Also check the systems logs after the hang happens and see if there was something logged that caused the hang.

I hope this helps?

Regards,

Lannon

I have been given an old computer with Windows XP installed on it from work. I cannot get into it as the computer is password protected. How do I overcome this problem without reformatting and installing...


Best and easiest way to reset the password is to remove the CMOS battery (resembles a watch battery but larger) for a period of 30min. Once the battery is replaced, boot up and it should boot without asking for a password.

If it is a BIOS password than unfortunately there is not much you can do.

BIOS information is stored on a flash memory chip built into the motherboard so there is not battery you can simply remove to reset the password.

if you are talking about the Administrator password for Windows than use these instructions:

Petter Nordahl-Hagen has written a Windows NT/2000/XP/Vista offline password editor: home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/
  • This is a utility to (re)set the password of any user that has a valid (local) account on your Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista system, by modifying the encrypted password in the registry's SAM file.
  • You do not need to know the old password to set a new one.
  • It works offline, that is, you have to shutdown your computer and boot off a floppy disk or CD. The boot-disk includes stuff to access NTFS partitions and scripts to glue the whole thing together.
  • Works with syskey (no need to turn it off, but you can if you have lost the key)
  • Will detect and offer to unlock locked or disabled out user accounts!
Caution: If used on users that have EFS encrypted files, and the system is XP or later service packs on W2K, all encrypted files for that user will be UNREADABLE! and cannot be recovered unless you remember the old password again! Download link:

Dell PowerEdge 1600SC Server problem


I had the same thing happen in a 600SC about a month ago.
Replaced the memory, and it fixed the problem.

It did the same hang. Would run fine for any where from a hour to 3 hours, and then quit (hang). And I got the same message. Talk to them and it was a short in the memory module, so some times it would read the entire stick, other times it would "not see it", and that would lock the OS.

Dell Wireless Keyboard stopped responding, please help.


The keyboard should have a button underneath it. Press the button on the usb controller first and then the button on the keyboard. Repeat a few times to see if it connects. If you are still having trouble try another set of batteries as some batteries are not designed for wireless products.
