If you don't get any fans from the CPU spinning, then there is a problem with actually tripping the power supply in the laptop.
The normal boot sequence is as follows: 1. Power is applied, fans spin 2. CPU receives power and then BIOS is checked 3. RAM then is detected and rest of the system components are quickly checked by BIOS 4. Hard drive is checked for boot sector.
Ask somebody to check the laptop to see if the voltage and amperage from the charger is within tolerance. If it is higher than 130% higher than listed in the voltage or more than 15% higher in the amperage, then the laptop is damaged.
If it is within tolerance, then try removing the actual battery first. If this doesn't help, have somebody check the hard drive. If this boots up in another laptop of the same model, then there is a problem with the transformer in the laptop.
if you are referring to a BIOS password, you need to contact dell tech support for this one.
if you are referring to a windows password, you can go to safemode, logon as administrator(normally admin account doesn't have any passwod) , and remove the password the user account you want to logon to.
Well, tried resetting all power to the board and then rebooting? Even CMOS batt? Try any video related fixes with the cheapest and simplest first, always... Check the output VGA port and S-video for example
Hello I am having the same problem. I have two batteries neither of which are detected even at full charge. My laptop only runs when its plugged in. My bios appears just as you said it remains stuck on the first page. This happened after my machine shut itself off i think due to overheating. I have done many upgrades and it has run great for over a year now. I have a much larger processor than my motherboard was meant for but it still ran with it in. Have you made any changes to your laptop recently? This happened to me right after i replaced the harddrive. Please let me know if you have fixed the problem thanks!
