Question about Dell Latitude D620 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a Dell Latitude D620 laptop, the mother board went bad. So we bought a replacement from eBay but now I have a new problem! As soon as you turn it on it is asking me for a password right at the BIOS? I have tried http://www.pccmos.com to remove this password but it did not work and if I call Dell support it is no longer under warranty, not supported and they want $100 up front with NO guaranteed solution. I found this website: http://www.weeklygripe.co.uk/a709.asp which is EXACTLY the same issue I am having and the same screen shown here: which recommends shorting the pins just as you're booting up in which we did exactly as described but still the password screen comes up? Has anyone had this same problem? Can anyone help me? Can anyone determine what is this password or have software to solve, scrub or resolve this problem? I tried to search in this forum for a fix but could not find one if one exists? This is WORSE then the blue screen of death, because at least a blue screen can be fixed. If anyone has a true fix or some software solvent please email antman67@yahoo.com - Thanks! Subject: D620 latitude BIOS password fix Thanks again

Well since you are skilled at removing and replacing the mother board, you should be able to see the BIOS battery. Remove it for 24 hours and everything should be reset.

I went out leaving my dell latitude D620 laptop on for hours, when i got back the screen was blank. i powered on and the lights came on and went off again


1. Check and see if the LED is on with the AC adapter, if possible, try a different Dell AC adapter (ANy D or E series Dell with a cannon plug connection should run that system Also ensure that the adapter is plugged into the wall.
2. If a known good power adapter does the same thing or if the LED goes out as soon as the adapter is plugged in to the system then the motherboard is suspect

The one you have listed is for a good price but this one may be a tad bit better:

Price is a bit better but its just knowing what the shipping is going to be.

Dell Latitude d620 display problem


Sounds like your computer has just bit the dust, do your self a favor and purchase a new one. This time buy an XP, it might be a little bit more, but you get what you pay for.

Dell latitude d620 power on password can't remove


No need to short out any pins, shorting out pins allow you to reset the BIOS quickly. When you leave the BIOS/CMOS battery out overnight, this will reset the BIOS (you only need to leave the battery out for 1/2 + hour to do the same thing).

Is any cheap battery for laptop d620


Hi - i've ran a D620 now running a D630 and yes the battery life is extremely poor even when the battery is new.
The option above will give you extra - you can also buy a moduler battery that will fit into the CDROM port which will give you even more!
