Re: reset my dell d630 to factory settings
The Dell D630 does not have a factory restore partition on the hard drive. Your only option is to use the windows restore feature that is accessable off of the start button, all programs, accessories, system tools. Plan B would be to borrow an operating system disk that matches the Certificate sticker on the bottom of the laptop, and then download all needed drivers from the Dell Website.

which operating system do you have?. if it is XP you can download an XP password recovery software which you need to burn to cd the boot your computer using the cd and follow the on screen instructions to "reset" your password.
Step 1: Backup everything that is important to you. Step 2: Boot your computer using the Windows installable CD. Step 3: Format your harddisk or repartition it. Step 4: Install Windows XP using the installable CD.
Don't try this if you are not sure of what you are doing. It won't damage your laptop, but you might require a long time to get your laptop working again.
This is a utility to (re)set the password of any user that has a
valid (local) account on your Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista system, by
modifying the encrypted password in the registry's SAM file.
You do not need to know the old password to set a new one.
It works offline, that is, you have to shutdown your computer and
boot off a floppy disk or CD. The boot-disk includes stuff to access
NTFS partitions and scripts to glue the whole thing together.
Works with syskey (no need to turn it off, but you can if you have lost the key)
Will detect and offer to unlock locked or disabled out user accounts!
Caution: If used on users that have EFS encrypted
files, and the system is XP or later service packs on W2K, all
encrypted files for that user will be UNREADABLE! and cannot be
recovered unless you remember the old password again! Download link:
This should be pretty easy to do. 1. Reboot your laptop and select F2 to go into the BIOS settings. You'll need to be quick or it will boot to Windows. 2. Use the --> arrow key to move to the Security page. 3. Arrow down to the Set HDD password and press Enter 4. Enter your current password 5. Select the Enter key twice to enter no password 6. Select the F10 key to save and exit.
Odd problem. To solve, best bet is too reboot computer, press F2 to enter system settings. Go to visual performance and set a terminal networked computer default. May reset all other setting as well though.
sir try to remove the pill battery its in the inside of ur box that return it that might give an error said that u shud configure again ur time and date but that is easy but taht will increase teh speed and gives a reset to full factory defaults
