SOURCE: password reset dell latitude C610, BIOS A16

When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there

also

The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

cmos battery Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment. Although on some motherboards the Cmos battery is soldered in Often many users will leave the administrator account alone or have other accounts with administrator rights. If you're not logging into the computer as administrator or have other accounts follow the below steps to reset your other accounts password.

Reboot the computer into Safe Mode

When logging into Safe Mode you should be prompted with an option to what account you wish to use. Select the Administrator account. If prompted for a password try pressing Enter on the keyboard for no password. If this does not work, try other passwords you may have used. If you're unable to log into the Administrator account skip to the next suggestion.

Once you've logged into the Administrator account open Control Panel and User Accounts.
In User Accounts select the account you wish to change the password for, click change password and then enter the new password or click remove the password to remove the password from the account. Hope this helps you

You can download the ausio and device drivers from Dell WEB site,the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system.

I can't upgrade my bios cause I don't know the bios password. What can I do ? I bought this dell latitude C610 to A friend (M. Allard) in 2002. I never need to go in bios before. Please I need somme help


Unfortunately if your bios is password protected there is only 2 ways to get in, find the person that knows the password or reset the CMOS by taking out or disconnecting the battery in the motherboard. Now i would not recommend you doing the CMOS reset if your not a technician. Find a trained and certified technician to reset the CMOS for you and you should be fine after that.

I have forgot my password on a dell Latitude C610 pc notebook


Yes you can reset your bios settings to factory defaults then it not ask for password.

For that open back side of laptop then you can find motherbord chipset.
Pull cmos cell from motherbord for 10 minutes so all settings are defaults.

Let me know if you need more assistanse.
Thanks

Since my a16 bios update on my dell inspiron 1525 theres no sound, tried all the diagnostics i can find and nothing seems to fix it.


It is likely that the BIOs update left the sound chip setting switched off. Simply go into the BIOs and find the section for Onbpard DEvices and re-enable it.

I want to put a 250 gig hard drive in a dell d600 but the bios a16 dont support that much what do i flash the bios with I know they do it as for they are for sale all over ebay with 250 gig.


Dell D600 have EIDE interface not SATA.

If you found EIDE or PATA interface for D600 with 250GB....when you install it divide the partition into 2.(100GB for windows sytem) and the rest will be your second drive.

Loooong boot up issue on Dell Latitude C610.


Did you buy this from an individual? The computer is no speed demon at 1-GHz/733-MHz Pentium III-M CPU, 256MB of SDRAM, 512KB L2 cache, however it should not take 18 minutes to boot.

If I were in your shoes I would reformat and reinstall the OS and start over, especially if you got this from an individual.

The boot time should greatly improve! I think it is loaded down with the bloat of **** the last person had on it.

If you do not want to reformat, here are some tips, and programs to run to increase performance.

go to start - run - type msconfig hit enter,
startup tab uncheck everything not needed at startup time.


www.ccleaner.com - get it and run it on the laptop, clean it out. Make sure you run the registry cleaner too!

Make sure you run a good online virus scan! like trend micro house call.

That should speed it up a little if you cannot reformat it and start over.

My Dell C610 won't reconize the second stick of 256 mb memory


As the computer boots, it detects the additional memory and automatically updates the system configuration information
where did you get the memory?
If it is in properly and does't work,it is either bad or the wrong part number for your Dell C610
