If you don't have any information that you wanted stored on the laptop you could try to restore it back to factory settings (reinstall operating system, restore computer) and this would erase the password protection. THAT IS IF YOU DO NOT NEED ANY DATA ON THE HARD DRIVE because this would ERASE YOUR DATA. If your not able to do this from within the bios you will need to find the Recovery Dvds that could have come with this laptop.

Dell inspiron 1300 laptop administrator password reset


You have to enter the password to be able to use the computer. There is no way to recover the password. Passwords stop other people from using your computer. If there was a way to bypass it, passwords would be absolutely useless in protecting your computer from unwanted people gaining information about you.

RE: DELL Inspiron 1300 Hello, Would a 14" screen


NO! it will fit in the opening but it will not have anything holding it in. So while yes it technically will "fit" it wont work as the screen will fall out every time you close it!

Hello I have got suddenly a white screen after starting the 5 year old Dell inspiron 1300. In the background the typicall sound of the Windows XP startprocedure can be heard, but I dont get any readable...


Hi holm_fischer,

White screen often caused by a defective screen. The easiest way to determine if you have a hardware or software problem is by performing a power drain. Please follow the steps below for additional instructions.

Power Drain:
1. Turn off the computer.

2. Unplug the AC adapter from the power outlet and take out the battery from the system.

3. Now, press the power button for about 15-20 seconds.

4. Put back the battery in and plug the AC adapter.

5. Turn on the system and try observing it.
--> If power drain did not work, you need to consult a repairman to have your screen be checked for possible damage.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How Can i find power password for dell inspiron 1300


The only way to get the power on password is to contact Dell and prove to them that you are the owner of the laptop and they will provide you with the master password. I had to do this once and it took me 6 emails throughout a 2 week period. I would go to their website and get the 1 800 number for a possible faster resolution.

Hope this helps. and best of luck..

Start the PC and run diagnostics (Fn + Power) then run the hard drive diagnostics. If this fails then chances are the Hard Drive has errors which probably means you would be lucky to get your file back Im afraid.

Dell Inspiron 1300 blank monitoe


Hello,

the problem might be from the screen or from the screen inverter.

Connect your laptop to an external monitor and try again.

If there is a display, then its obvious that the problem is from screen or screen inverter of your laptop.

Good luck.

Dell inspiron 1300 Video card upgrade


Sorry you cannot upgrade the graphics on your laptop according to the articles i looked up.
You should call DELL. I think the display card is part of the mother board on your computer. In this case, you cannot change it. In some models you can add some memory to the display card, but this may not make the card faster. Higher amounts of memory allows for more resolution and colours.
