Dell Laptop is Dead

Is there any way to do a hard reset on a Dell. I recently did one on my HP laptop by removing the battery and then holding down the start button for 20 seconds and it started working again. How about a Dell procedure?

    Dell told me that if you remove the battery, remove the power, then hold down the start button for 5 seconds, it would do a hard reset. A little different than the HP. Thank You!

How to Reset an HP Laptop BIOS Password


Reset the password on any HP laptop.

Reset the BIOS password on an HP laptop computer when it has been forgotten or when preparing the laptop for sale to a new owner. Learn how to erase an unknown BIOS password by physically disconnecting the internal batteries. Avoid spending hundreds of dollars at a service center to make changes that can often be performed at home by anyone with the ability to take an HP laptop apart and put it back together again.

Items you will need

  • Small screwdriver set
  • Flashlight
Step 1

Power down the computer if necessary by holding the power button down for six seconds until the power shuts off.
Step 2

Disconnect the power cord from the HP laptop computer. Remove the battery by flipping the computer over onto its cover and releasing the battery clips as indicated by the illustrations on the bottom of the laptop or in the owner's manual. Lift the edge of the battery nearest the clips up first, then pull the battery out of the laptop.
Step 3

Remove the screws that hold the hard drive cover in place and remove the cover. Take the hard drive out of the laptop by removing the two retaining screws and pulling the drive gently away from the connector, then lifting the hard drive bracket or tray out of the computer.
Step 4

Remove the screws that hold the memory compartment cover in place, then remove the cover. Remove the memory modules from the sockets by spreading the metal retaining clips gently apart and allowing the module to spring upward. Pull the memory straight out of the socket at the angle it rests at when sprung from the retaining clips.
Step 5

Remove the Real Time Clock (RTC) coin cell battery from the memory compartment by pressing the retaining clip and pulling the coin cell battery out of the socket.
Step 6

Allow the computer to sit without the battery for an hour, then reinstall the memory and hard drive, but leave the coin cell battery and the main battery out of the system. Connect the AC power adapter to the system and power it on to clear the BIOS password.
Step 7

Power the system back down and remove the power cord to reinstall the coin cell battery and main battery.

hope this helps

Dell inspiron 1520 won't turn on.


Remove the battery from its compartment on the side of your Dell Inspiron laptop computer.


Remove the power adapter from its plug on the side of the Dell Inspiron (if your laptop is currently plugged into a wall outlet).


Press down and hold the "Power" button on the laptop for one to two minutes. This will dispel the excess electrical current that is built up inside the laptop.


Put the battery back inside the compartment of your Dell Inspiron.


Plug your power adapter back into the side of the Dell Inspiron. Press "Power." Your laptop computer will now turn on.


hope this helps

Laptop Dell D610 locks up when just sitting there or when you try to shut it down


Hi.

Try to power cycle the laptop first. Unplug the power adapter, hold down the power button until it shuts down the laptop. Remove the battery for about 30 secs, put it back in. Turn the laptop on. See if this works.

By the way, can you be more specific on the word "lock up"? Do you mean, the computer freezes?

Thank you.

HP Pavillion dv2500 laptop won't turn on


Kinda strange. Not turning on indicates a hardware problem, you made software changes. If the software changes caused a problem, it would start, just not boot to windows. I would first tryy to reset the laptop. Unplug it and remove the battery, hold down the power button for 60 seconds, then try again. If still no go, start removing hardware one at a time, hard drive, rem, wireless card, dvd rom. You may have a bad hard drive. Your pc should boot to bios if there is no hard drive installed. If that happens, run a diagnostic on your hard drive from your bios. Let me know if you need anything else.
