Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook

Invalid Configuration information

I have another B130 with problems. (Did they ever make a model like this that had no problems?) When I turn the power on the meter bar shoots across and then goes into this screen and says Invalid configuration information-please run setup program. When I first turn it on there is no F2 or F12 appears on the screen. Any ideas how to get into setup?

Invalid configuration information-please run SETUP program

Here is what you do, go into the BIOS setup, usually you press the DEL key OR F2 or whatever your one is, IT should say on screen as it boots up.... it says "Press YOUR- KEY Key for SETUP". So, get into setup, using your manual ensure it is set correctly. Then SAVE SETTING and exit All should be good now.

Dell B130 Laptop BIOS LOCKED

On alot of motherboards, and I don't know if I would have access to this one or not, there is a set of 3 pins coming out of the board itself, usually with a jumper on 1-2 position. Somewhere next to them, maybe some text like PWD CLR ? Usually, moving the jumper to 2-3, clears the password on the BIOS, as a failsafe back up. If it does look, 'comfortably' like that, don't change anything else. It usually takes only a minute, under battery power, to clear it. Once done, move the jumper back to the 1-2 position.

If you don't see it clearly, write back and I'll see if my Technician access allows for the detailed info. Also, please include the Model # amd Make of your Dell unit.

Ispiron b130 wont turn on


Im sorry to inform you that the motherboard on your computer needs to be replaced. If the ac adapter light turns on if not plugged into the system and when you do plug it in, it dims or flashes, that's a right out symptom that the motherboard needs to be replaced. Do you still have warranty for that system? if you do, call Dell Tech Support and have them replace it. If the warranty is already expired, please call Dell at 1-800-2884410 for an estimate on how much it would cost you to have the motherboard replaced. Usually would be around $400 - $500 and 5-8 business days. Unfortunately, you have to ship the system back to Dell for that repair.

Hope you find this solution helpful and informative.
