Please run setup invalid configuration information


If this error message comes up when you boot up the computer, it means the BIOS requires configuration, usually the Time and Date is wrong.
If this occurs every time you boot up your computer and have changed the Date and Time then this could be caused by a flat BIOS battery.
If so, replace the BIOS battery and then configure the Date and Time and you won't get this error again.

Como resetar a senha da Bios do notebool Dell Inspíron 6000, ou qual a senha de fábrica?


To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper and I wouldn't recommend doing it especially if it's under warranty.

Invalid configuration information-please run SETUP program


Here is what you do, go into the BIOS setup, usually you press the DEL key OR F2 or whatever your one is, IT should say on screen as it boots up.... it says "Press YOUR- KEY Key for SETUP". So, get into setup, using your manual ensure it is set correctly. Then SAVE SETTING and exit All should be good now.

My Dell Inspiron 6000 (which I think I bought in


Have you tried this:
1. After removing the battery
2. Press and hold the power button for at least 10 sec.
3. Put back the battery
4. Turn it on

if this doesnt work, there could be a problem with your operating system. Try accessing safe mode if you can login .TAP F8 continously on the dell logo screen, and it will open advance boot options. (Just select safe mode) If safe mode boots properly try running system restore to restore it back to the previous date where your computer is still booting to windows. Hope this helps

Dell Ispriron E1505 has a display message, invalid configuration information Please run setup program but won't go into setup. Machine goes to preparing setup menu and then screen goes grey and machine...


Try removing both memory sticks and then booting up with just one installed. The bios should notice a shift in the amount of memory and prompt you to enter the bios.

Let me know if that works.

Dell Inspiron 6000: No Boot Up after BIOS loads


You can download a small program called memtest 86 which is an ISO for creating a bootable cd that will test the ram. You can get it from: http://www.memtest86.com/download.html

Also the HD may be the problem even if the BIOS can see it. Pull the HD and try booting from the xp disk again.

Hope this helps

Dell Inspiron 6000 to TV


On a dell laptop, the key combo FN  F8 cycles through the display options. Laptop screen, External screen, Laptop and External screen at the same time.  Try pressing the FN F8 key to get the video to display on both laptop and lcd and the same time.  If that doesn't work you can also change the settings on what the laptop does when the lid is closed.  Check the power settings in the control panel.
