How can i have the password bios of laptop dell E6420


f you are running Dell servers, it is recommended to enable BIOS password. This is will prevent accidental changes done to Dell BIOS settings by others who get physical access to the server.

You can setup two different types of passwords in Dell BIOS:

System Password: This will be prompted before the system can boot up, and load the operating system.
Setup password: The system will prompt for this password only when you are trying to access the BIOS settings.

Depending on your situation, it might be a good idea to enable both the system and setup password at the BIOS level. I recommend that you at least enable BIOS password.
Press F2 for System Setup

When the Dell server is booting up, press F2 to start system setup, from where you can change Dell BIOS settings.

BIOS System Security

From the Dell BIOS main menu, scroll down to "System Security" and press enter.

Password Not Enabled

From here, you can see that both the System and Setup password is not enabled by default.

Enable System Password (and Setup Password)

Scroll to "System Password" and press enter, which will prompt you to enter the password that you like to set for the system. Please understand that if you set this password, you have to enter this password everytime you start the system. Do the same thing for Setup Password.

Don't forget this bios password. If you forget, then you have go through the painful process of resetting the Dell BIOS password.
Password is Enabled

Once you've enabled both the password, from the "System Security" menu, you'll see that that both system and setup password is enabled as shown below.

password is set

System Password Prompt (During Startup)

From now-onwards, anytime you start the system, it will not load the operating system, unless you specify the system password as shown below.

12345

Setup Password Prompt (To Access BIOS)

If you press F2, to get to the BIOS, it will prompt for the setup password as shown below. If you don't enter a valid password here, you cannot access the Dell BIOS settings anymore.

Unable to connect to the laptop computers


dear Sure there is, but it's supposed to connect via a LAN switch. Since it worked at your old place, did you miss a step? Was the printer plugged into a router and the computer also plugged into the same router?

Start with the wired network setup section in the quick start guide. It might give you an idea on what to do http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Quick%20Setup%20Guide/QSG_MFC_490CW_EN_1578.PDF

Lancard of my laptop affected with electrical failure.


May not be a hardware problem. try two things: first, in Windows, open Network connections and check to make sure that the LAN is enabled; I have seen it accidentally disabled. Second, make sure that it is enabled in the BIOS. to do that, press F2 repeatedly when booting. The BIOS setup screen will appear; you are looking for 'Onboard Devices'; highlight and hit Enter to expand. Arrow down to Integrated NIC and make sure that it is enabled. Once it is enabled, press ESC and 'Save and Exit' to boot again. If neither of these will work, you MAY have to look into an add-on card; however, having the onboard NIC fail is very rare. It is built into the motherboard, so you cannot simply replace it.

Have wireless internet but no connection to laptop. where's the switch on the laptop to turn it back on?


Hi !

Most of the laptop wireless switch is on the side of the laptop. If there is no physical switch, press the Fn+F2(wireless symbol) to enable the laptop. Double check the wireless LAN if enabled in the system setup. To access system setup, press F2 while the system is booting-up.

Hope this helps !

Thanks.

Lan internet


Hi,

the easiest way to setup internet on the laptop, is to go to control panel, and launch the network setup wizard. this will enable you to setup a new network, and scan for a local area network connection. this will also give you access to the troubleshooter. to solve any connection problems or issues, should there be any. If your using a wireless method. Your PC must also be able to transmit/receive wireless Signals. If hardwired you,ll have to use the network setup wizard, as this will auto determine I.P And any other DNS settings et,c.

Hope this Helps Mike @ compurepair.
