Question about Dell (19877)

1 Answer

I have recently purchased a Dell Vostro A860 machine from Karachi, Pakistan. Today when I switched on my laptop, it has started to ask for a BIOS password in order to proceed with system. Since I never applied one, I am unable to provide a valid password and get through with this problem. I therefore request you to please guide meas to how to get through with this problem. I am at a loss without my system as all my important files and documents have become unaccessible. A prompt favorable response is requested. NOTE: When I contacted the seller for the Master BIOS password, he said he dont have any.

You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, thesupport download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operatingsystem.

I recently purchased a Dell A860 from a garage sale. My problem is they didn't give me any passwords to the laptop. When I power up the computer it asks for a password authentication system. How could I...

try booting it in safe mode and make a new user name with administrator privileges, then shut it down and restart to find the new name, then you can delete the other user names. Did you try to go back where you bought it?

Disk detection On and Off

You could have a partially defective hard drive and could fail permanently at any time.
Try reseating the hard drive and if you manage to get the laptop up and running, I would suggest you back up your data before the hard drive fails.
