Error 2000-0221 on my Inspiron e1705....

My wife put my laptop on standby last week and then left it and went to bring it back up and the windows logo screen with bios info came up but showed an error with the change in HW or SW... it shut down my system to prevent any further data loss?
When i found this out i was like...could be a HW issues or possibly a bad real to the HDD.
I thought my hard drive crashed...but after purchasing another hard's seems to be a hardware issue within the mobo...with the interval timer channel 0 (mode 0). Is there a reset method for this... or do i have to reset my CMOS? I was going to pull the battery to reset...but i'm researching more before i attempt it. How do i go about resetting?

It sounds like it did not properly go into stand by or hibernate. Try holding down the power button for about 5 or 6 seconds until you hear it power off. Then wait a few seconds and then turn it back on.

Dell inspiron e1705 did factory restore then screen went black now what do i do?

Since you did factory install, Might probably that's the recovery partition you used, Try to restart computer, if does not work, turn it off, unplug ac adapter and battery then drain residual power of laptop by pressing the power button for 5 secs, then put the ac adapter and battery again. If it still doesn't work, try to run diagnostics first if it fails then you'll need to replace a part, if it passes then you'll need to do operating system re-installation manually.

I forgot my passkey to transfer things from my laptop to blackberry

If your Blackberry is on a Blackberry Enterprise Server (corporate email) the administrator can send out a temporary password to your device. Otherwise you can just make 10 attempts then it will erase all your data, and try doing a restore from your last backup.

Please help! My Dell Inspiron Mini will not start up!!

There is a hardware problem with the laptop causing it not to boot up, if you have only had this laptop for 3 weeks then i recommend you take advantage of the manufacturers warranty and sent it in for them to deal with as a hardware failure within 3 weeks is quite rare.

Dell Inspiron E1705 laptop, my screen was full 17" but now its like 13" viewing area? What setting changed and how do I put it back to normal viewing?

There must be a key called "fn" in your keyboard. Hold on it and press the square indicated key in the f-keys at the top. You have shrunk the screen size. This must reset it.
