SOURCE: ERROR MESSAGE

There has been a hard drive password initiated on the system by someone. If you do not have access to the password, you'll need to contact Dell Technical Support (800-624-9896) and after you verify ownership, they can generate a password to access the hard drive.

SOURCE: unable to uninstall biometric password

Hi im Rain.
In order to remove the bios password you will need to open the Laptop to get to the mother board. on the motherboard you will see a little small battery that looks like a watch battery.
You will need to remove this battery and wait like 5 minutes. this will clear the bios password allowing you to gain entry to the system. Another way to gain entry to the system will be to reinstall windows. This will also allow you to gain access .

SOURCE: i forgot the bios password

Hi,

The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOS battery. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when it is turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by small battery inside the computer called a CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, the computer will forget alot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password. This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experienced working with laptop hardware.

Anyway, open up the computer case using a screw driver and locate the flat, circular and metallic CMOS battery. It should look something like the picture to the right. Some computers have this part standing upright.

Once you have located it, observe how the latches are holding it. There are many different ways to remove a CMOS battery but the most common way on newer computers can be seen in the picture below.

Make sure to power down the computer, unplug the power cables and unplug any USB devices if they are powered. The computer must not be able to get power from anywhere for this to work. Take out the CMOS battery and wait 10 – 25 minutes before putting it back in. The reason for this wait is because the computer can still store power in its capacitors even though everything is unplugged. The waiting period allows enough time for them to discharge.

Plug everything back in, power up the computer and enter the BIOS again. If everything went well there should be no more password. In some cases, if you get weird error messages during bootup now, you will need to goto “Load BIOS Defaults” in BIOS and save the changes to fix them.


Good luck!
And Thanks.

Always booting but unable to load untill iremove the battery to get it off


That means your operating system in unstable. First of all you need to identify what operating system you are using for example Windows 7 or 8 or XP. Then Get a CD for that operating system. Boot from the Operating system CD and select Repair so that the machine can be repaired. During the repair process your machine will restart a couple of times so do not freak out it will be okay. But if it does not work after repair, then you will have to consider what we call wipe and reload. In wipe and reload, we only save all your data and reformat and reconfigure your computer to its factory settings

    2. Step 6 Restore a Dell System Running Windows Vista

      Shutdown and restart your computer. Keep pressing "F8" until you see the "Advanced Boot Options" menu. You must depress the keys before the Windows Logo screen appears.

      Select the appropriate language and click "Next".

      Sign onto the system as an administrator. Without administrative privileges, you will be unable to perform the system restore.

    There are two ways to perform a System Restore in Microsoft Windows. The choice only depends on if the computer is currently able to boot into Windows or not. If the computer is able to get to the desktop (with the clickable start
    in the lower left corner), then choose Method 1. If the system is unable to boot to the desktop or otherwise is unable to complete a system restoration using the selection above, then choose Method 2.
    Method 1 Able to Access the Desktop.

    this is the resolution i got from trend micro regarding this error. it worked for me, so i thought i should share: I have reviewed your case and I understand that you are getting an error message that says “Unable To Update Your Protection” when updating the Trend Micro Consumer Product. With regard to your concern, this problem happens if there’s a missing component in your computer’s Registry. Let us configure the registry of your computer using the Registry Editor of Windows. Refer to the following. 1. Click on the Start button or the Windows Orb Button. 2. Windows XP: Click on Run then type regedit on the text field then click on the OK button. Windows Vista: Type regedit on the Start Search above the Windows Orb button then press Enter key on your keyboard. And the Registry Editor window will appear. 3. Click on the plus sign (+) or the arrow sign (>) besides HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. 4. Click on the plus sign (+) or the arrow sign (>) besides SOFTWARE. 5. Click on the plus sign (+) or the arrow sign (>) besides Microsoft. 6. Click on the plus sign (+) or the arrow sign (>) besides Windows. 7. Click on the plus sign (+) or the arrow sign (>) besides CurrentVersion. 8. Click on the plus sign (+) or the arrow sign (>) besides Explorer. 9. Click on the Shell Folders. 10. Look for the Common Appdata entry on the right panel. If there’s a Common Appdata entry on the list: - Double click on the Common Appdata entry and the Edit String window will appear. - Windows XP: Type C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data on the text field under Value Data. Windows Vista: Type c:\ProgramData on the text field under Value Data. - Click on the OK button. If there’s no Common Appdata entry on the list: - Right click on an empty space and options will appear. - Click on New and options will appear. - Click on the String Value option. - Set the name to Common Appdata. - Double click on the Common Appdata entry and the Edit String window will appear. - Windows XP: Type C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data on the text field under Value Data. Windows Vista: Type c:\ProgramData on the text field under Value Data. - Click on the OK button. 11. Close the Registry Editor window. 12. Restart the computer for the changes to take effect. After doing the suggested solutions, you should now be able to update the program successfully.

    Returning To The Original Operating State


    you may find that you have two partitions on your hard drive showing as a seperate drive in my computer, here there is normally a backup of your pc's initial setup.

    There should be a wizard somewhere on your programme files to help you with the backup restoration process, but make sure you save anything important to a cdrom before you start as the system will be completely formatted and installed as new.
