Which operating sys. is in use.
and when do you get a password screen is it before dell logo or is it when you click on your user name.
if it comes before dell logo then it is bios password. and you need to open the tower and reset the bios jumper and if it is windows password and if it is vista you can reset the password.
Here is the process to run Imagex:
1. Boot to the computer using VISTA DVD.
2. Select the option repair my computer.
3. Go to command prompt
4. Go to D: prompt
5. Type Path d:\windows;d:\windows\system32 and press Enter
6. Go to Tools folder using command "cd tools".
7. Use this command Imagex /apply d:\dell\image\factory.wim 1 c:\
This process will take 15 Minutes after that reboot the system. After rebboting we will get OOBE Screen.
We can logon to the system using new username. We can retrieve the data by navigating to old user profile.
How to retrieve the data from the old user profile after using the Imagex procedure :
1. Click Computer
2. Click Local Disk C:
3. Locate Windows.old and double click on the same
4. Click Users
5. Click <username>
Note : <username> would be the login name for which he has forgotten the password
6. Accordingly you can access the files available in the folders Desktop, Favourites, Music, Downloads etc
7. Copy the required files and save it in the desired location

Hello i have dell vostro 500 i forgot the my system bios password pls help to remove the password pls


You can set two passwords

1. Setup password, used to access and change settings
2. System password, used to restrict access to the system

If you have set the first one, which is asked only if you press F2 and try to access setup / BIOS settings, and if you can still go to windows, download the latest firmware for this computer and execute it. This will update the firmware after erasing the old settings, thereby erasing the existing password also. Ensure you do this process when your battery is fully charged and also with the power adaptor connected and on. During the process if the system powers down then this will turn your motherboard faulty and it can only be replaced by Dell.


If you have set the second one, which asks everytime you start your computer and waits in a black screen for a password then you can only get this reset by Dell, if you have warranty call them else using another computer write to them.

My Dell vostro A860 Laptop shuts off after 5 seconds that I have turned it on, the blue light showing that is has turned. The screen is black, I don't even get the boot up screen. What will I do. thanks


Enter to bios after powering and watch if it still go off. If not, go to Healt or sensors section and watch the temperature of CPU and system. The computer might turn off because of overheating.

Dell Vostro screen has started going black every


Check the power settings. Start/Control Panel/Power Options. There is a setting separate from the screen saver to turn off the screen in the Power Options control panel. DVD playback overrides the power options settings.

Turn on my Dell Vostro 1500 and all I get is a black screen


Remove and re-seat your RAM cards. Remove your battery but leave the power supply attached. Try to start. If this doesn't work, your motherboard has died and needs to be replaced. Not a do-it-yourself job unfortunately.

Dell Vostro 1400 LCD Showing Black Screen


If you can't see it with an external monitor - it generally means the system board needs replacement. I hope that you still have a Dell warranty. Good luck.
