Assuming you did the correct bios update, you may need to remove the CMOS battery for about 30 seconds and then replace it.

SOURCE: my dell vostro 1710 laptop computer screen is black.

First, try reseating the memory modules in the laptop.

If still nothing, try removing the hard drive, CD/DVD Drive, and memory one at a time (in that order) see if anything makes it boot.

Replace the parts and try booting again.

The error flashing means a processor failure. If you are knowledgeable you can try re-seating the processor.

However, if your unit is in warranty I would call Dell and have them replace the main board and the memory modules as a set. Warning: They will make you go thru these same tests even if you already have.

SOURCE: How do you reset/break a dell Vostro Bios

1.Power down the computer by clicking the "Start" and "Shut Down" button. Allow the computer to turn off entirely and wait about 30 seconds. Unhook the AC adapter from the computer. Turn the computer over and locate the battery compartment near the display hinges. Push the latches away from each other to unlock the battery. Remove the battery from the laptop.

2. Locate the memory compartment found on the opposite end of the laptop's bottom. Unscrew and remove the single phillips-head screw using a precision screwdriver. Pry the metal door off the laptop using the screwdriver.

3. Locate the memory module. Directly under the module is a blue plastic sleeve connected to the mainboard with a single wire. Disconnect the wire and wait about 30 seconds. Reconnect the wire to the mainboard and replace the metal memory door. Secure the door to the laptop by tightening the phillips screw with the screwdriver.

4. Reinstall the laptop battery, inserting the tabs first and clicking downward. Plug the AC adapter back into the laptop. Flip the computer over and power on the system. Enter the BIOS and change the password if desired, or leave it blank for no password prompt. (Source: How to Reset the BIOS Password on a Dell Vostro 1500 Laptop ' eHow.com)

How do I unlock my keyboard on my dell Vostro 1710 computer


I'll assume your keyboard was fully functional, then something happened (not involving a liquid spill or other physical damage), and now your keyboard seems to be dead. Please correct me if I am wrong, but I take it that your computer makes it through the bootstrapping process and successfully completes POST before Windows(?) takes over.

Based on those assumptions, I think you tripped a security "feature" by accident, which can be disabled either through a specific combination of keys (e.g. ctrl + alt + del), or by entering BIOS configuration (commonly f12, f2, or del).

Finally, it is possible you will need to drain all power from the machine by unplugging the charger, removing the big laptop battery, and then removing the CMOS battery by taking off the RAM or HDD panel on the underside of the laptop. If this is required, I suggest waiting at least 15 seconds before replacing the batteries.

Does my Dell Vostro 1710 have a webcam?


It is an optional extra on this laptop according to dell link below.
the webacam is located at the top center of the screen if it is installed when you shine a torch in there you should see the lens like a camera on your mobile.

I would also check the device manager and see if anything appears in there. Perhaps drivers need to be installed.

CD ROM is in the 1710 but system does not recognise disk and now will not eject. I have tried from the BIOS screen but no luck....


First get the cd out. On the side where the cd tray is there should be a little pin hole. Stick a pin in gently and that should release the cd tray and eject the cd. Then try updateing your cd rom drivers, uninstall and reinstall....

My Dell vostro 1710 usb slots are not working


Hi there.
It sounds like the bios may have become corrupt knocking them and the WiFi out.
Go here to dell support and download the bios (it has to be on the machine that's faulty) make sure the laptop is plugged in to the mains power when you update the bios >>>>>>>>

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=BIOSA&osl=EN&catid=-1&impid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=VOS_N_1710&hidos=WLH&hidlang=en&TabIndex=

Hopefully the USB's and the WiFi will come back to life again.
Please post back if you need anymore help or advice or if the bios update does not reactivate them.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
