I recommend a complete reinstall of windows, here is how you should proceed:

- First you need your product license key for XP, did you get any winXP CD's or manuals? The product key may be located on a sticker found on them, sometimes with preinstalled laptops, a product license key may be located on underside of the device on a microsoft-labeled sticker, write it down on a piece of paper.
* No sticker or torn/unreadable sticker? Then do following (best suited for intermediate-advanced users, if you are a beginner you could ask a friend for help) :
** If you have access to a friends computer for instance, you can use that to create password recovery/bypass media, like a CD or USB stick, read more on
** After bypassing the windows logon, install and use The Magical Jellybean Keyfinder, found from , dig out that product license and write it down on a piece of paper.

- Now that you have your product license key, insert the winXP install disc if you got one with the purchase, else you can borrow them from someone, the borrowed discs should be of version winXP Professional aswell. With CD inserted restart laptop and boot from CD/DVD device, different systems have different keys to enter Boot setup, typically any of the F1-12 keys must be pressed at the early stages of system startup, normally F11 but you may need to feel your way through it. Now that you booted with the setup disc you will recieve easy-to-follow instructions how to proceed.

- Laptop does not have CD/DVD device, or you don't have any winXP discs, and nobody to borrow them from?
Then you will need to install via an USB stick, It must be of size 2Gb or larger, you will also need a secondary computer to prepare the USB stick on. This process might seem long and difficult, and it might be for beginners, but an intermediate-advance user should get through it without much problems.
Search the web for detailed guides how to prep your device for the install, typically write in google "install windows xp from usb drive". You might get the winXP files from microsoft download center, or you might have to download them from 3rd party sites, note that your operating system will still be legit regardless where you got the files from, aslong as you have the product license key.

Hope this have shed some light on your problem. J.D.

Ok first do you have the windows xp professional cd to restore your system. That will be your first thing to do if you cannot remember your password. If you do then reload the system to the original state. Let me know if you need any assistant by doing that.

Is the disk you have xp pro? If not, just do the xp home or whatever is on the disk. You may have to format your hard drive to clear it to accept the windows. Get plenty of advise before you do anything permanent like formating your hard drive. Get any factory disks that you can that will have your bios on them.

D630 docked , ext mouse & kybd not responding

If the docking station has power:

Make sure power is off for both the laptop and the docking station. Plug your keyboard and mouse into the docking station. Dock the D630 to the docking station and then power on docking station. This should then turn on your D630. Your D630 should detect the keyboard and mouse.

If the docking station has no power:

Verify that the power cord, AC adaptor, etc. is plugged in. If the items listed seem to be in order,
there may be a problem with the power going into the docking station. (AC adaptor?) will have the specific details for your D630 and your docking station, et al.

Please let me know if you have success in this.
