    Are you sure you entered the HDD password? If it isn't the correct password you'll have limited access. Not a User Password, nor BIOS password, nor Administrator password. The HDD password was created by you.

Oh boy, you need to call dell for that. the hdd is locked and only dell can give you the password. dont try unknow passwords its not gonna work. the password is related to the secuity of the machine. call dell and they will give you the password. in case by any reason you cant call dell. you need to repalce the hdd then. call dell they will give you the password free.

I am having issues with my laptop Dell Vostro 1510. Getting a black screen and white cursor in the upper left hand corner.


The error code indicates that the system is not able to access or detect any Hard Disk Drive.
If comfortable you can try the following:
1. Open your laptop following the below guide
2. Look for the Hard Disk Drive
3. Remove it from the system
4. Re-seat the Hard Disk drive
5. Re-start the system

If still the HDD is not detected I am afraid to say that the Drive is gone bad and needs a replacement.

Kindly feel free for any further clarification or assistance.

I forgot my password in my pc dell vostro 1015 and i have no sollution plz help me to overcome this problem


Step 1: Enter Safe Mode


a) Start or re-start your computer.


b) Before the Windows 7 loading screen appears, Press 'F8? to enter Advanced Boot Options.


c) Use arrows to choose 'Safe Mode' when you can see the Advanced Boot Options screen.


d) Press 'Enter' and wait for Windows 7 files to load.


e) Log on with an administrator account when you can see the log on screen


Note: Well, when you are presented with the Advanced Boot Options screen, there are 3 types of Safe Mode. They are the Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking and Safe Mode with Command Prompt, and the 3 options are all available for you. Here above we take Safe Mode as an example, but if you choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt, you'll need to input related to command prompt to reset the password.


Step 2: Reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7


Now you could diagnose and solve some serious computer problems in the safe mode and reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7 as follows:


1. Click 'Start' button, input 'lusrmgr.msc' into the Search box and press 'Enter'.


2. In the 'Local Users and Groups screen', click 'Users'.


3. Right-click the account that you need to reset the password for, and then click 'Set Password'.


4. Type and confirm the new password, click 'OK'. (You can go to 'Local Users and Groups' screen by right-clicking 'Computer' to select 'Manage' on desktop.)


Step 3: Log on your password protected PC again with the new password since you have successfully performed Windows password reset for Windows 7.

KEYBOARD STUCK ON FN KEYS


Start the computer and go into Safe Mode by pressing the F8 key repeatedly when you see the Dell splash screen. Select Safe Mode at the top of the list. When SM is fully loaded, you will see a windows telling you that you are in SM. There will be two buttons at the bottom of the window. Click the right button to do a system restore. Choose a date just before the mishap with the external keypad. It will restore the computer to how it was at that time and restart Windows.

Good luck, and please let me know how it works out.
