Turn system off / Than try to re-boot after it comes back on.

If this dont work retry again with the battery back in , than turn system off and see if it re-boot again if so , take battery out and re try again with the normal re-booting .

    If you're running Windows XP, put your Windows XP (or recovery) disc in, load Windows Setup, then press R for Recovery in setup.

    You'll be asked eventually which installation of Windows you want to use, it's usually 1. It'll ask for an admin password, if you haven't set one, hit enter.

    Then type "fixmbr" and confirm the action. Restart, then that should sort your problem.

    No power or computer does not turn on.

    No power from the computer can be caused by any of the below possibilities.

        Connections not connected properly.
          Third-party hardware.
            Bad power cable.
              Incorrect power supply.
                Bad battery.
                  Bad power supply, power button, and/or power board or inverter.

              Note: If the computer is turning on but is not posting (beeping) or giving any type of picture on the display, please see document CH000607.
              If you are uncertain if the computer is turning on or not, this can be easily checked by locating any fans in the computer or visible from the outside of the computer. If these fans are spinning, the computer is receiving power and this document may not apply to your issue.
              Connections not connected properly

              Verify that the power connection is connected properly to the wall and the back of the computer. If the connections appear to be connected properly, attempt to disconnect and reconnection both ends of the cable.
              If you have a power strip (surge protector) or switch used to turn everything on at once, temporarily disconnect the computer from that switch and connect that cable directly to the wall. This will help verify that the strip or switch is not bad.
              Verify that the outlet works by connecting a different component to that switch.

              Third-party hardware

              If additional hardware has been recently added to the computer it is recommend that you temporarily disconnect that device or devices from the computer to verify they are not preventing your computer from turning on.
              Note: If the computer was working fine before you added the new hardware, removing the third-party hardware did not resolve the issue, and the computer is not beeping but is turning on, please see our POST troubleshooting document CH000607.

              Bad Power cable

              Verify that the cable supplying your computer is not bad or damaged by using another power cable. If you have a standard CRT monitor, this cable can be used in place of the computer power cable.
              If you have a portable computer or laptop, when the cables are plugged into the laptop you should see a power light or battery charge light. If this light is seen, this is a good indication that the power cable is good.

              Incorrect power supply

              If you are building your own computer or if the computer has never turned on since you purchased it, it is possible you are using a power supply that does not supply enough power and/or the incorrect type of power supply. Verify your power supply meets the requirements of your motherboard and processor.

              Bad battery

              If your computer is a laptop or portable computer that utilizes a battery for mobility it is possible that the battery may be causing your issue.

                  If your computer powers on when the cable is connected to the portable computer but not when it is disconnected, we recommend you purchase a new battery.
                    If your computer does not power on when the battery is connected and when the power cable / charger cable is connected, try removing the battery and seeing if the computer can power on with only the power cable connected. If no power is still received, skip to the final section.

              Bad Power Supply, power button, and/or power board or inverter

              If, after following the above sections, your computer still receives no power, it is likely that a hardware component in the computer has failed. It is most likely that the power supply has failed. If you do not plan on replacing the power supply yourself or if you have a portable computer, we recommend having the computer serviced by your computer manufacturer or a local computer repair shop.
              If you have a desktop computer and plan on trying to repair the computer yourself, we recommend you replace the components in your computer in the below order.

                  First open the computer and verify the power connections. You may also wish to consider disconnecting the main power cable and reconnecting the power cable to make sure it has not become loose. Also verify the power button cable is correctly connected to the Motherboard.
                    Replace the power supply with a new power supply.
                      Replace the motherboard.

Got a dell latitude e6400series forgot bios password can i fix this problem ?

Welcome to Fixya

Common procedure in resetting the password is by resetting the motherboard by reseating the CMOS battery. You need to access you motherbard and locate the circular silver metallic object on the motherboard. This is much bigger in size compared to a wristwatch battery. CAREFULLY remove the CMOS battery, avoid touching it with your fingers, and leave it out for about 120 seconds. This will flush the CMOS memory which stores the BIOS password and all other configuration. Put the the battery back in and turn on the computer.

Other procedure is the jumper reset. Some, but not all, motherboard manufacturers provide a set of three jumpers on their motherboards that provide you with the ability to clear the Bios/CMOS settings, thereby allowing them to be reset. For the most part this is used when the Bios/CMOS data becomes scrambled and you need to clear the Bios/CMOS in order to return the computer to a functional state. This same procedure, however, can be used to clear passwords from the Bios/CMOS setup. Typically a jumper will be found across pins #1 and #2 as the default position, and by shutting the computer down, unplugging the power cord and then moving the jumper so that it is across pins #2 and #3 will clear the Bios/CMOS settings.

If procedures above has been done and yet you are getting same results. Its time to call you manufacturer and have the motherboard re-flushed or re-imaged.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Wont boot without password

Unplug the laptop and remove the main battery. Remove the cover for the memory modules and you will also see the CMOS backup battery located there. Unplug it for 10-15 mins, then plug it back in, insert your main battery, ac adapter and boot the system. You will need to reset the system date again once the CMOS is cleared.

BIOS password

Its in the motherboard.... remove the c-mos battery and then place it will reset the bios password..

No boot

You need the manual.
You also need to know what bios you have.

Take the battery out for 24 hours.

Most motherboards I have worked on will not discharge in only a half hour. You need a lot more time than that.

You can also clear the cmos on the jumpers. Be sure you know which jumpers, otherwise you may damage the board.
By shorting two of three jumpers, the cmos will be cleared to factory settings.


There is only one to remove that is to:

If you know how to open the laptop then follow this but, if you don't then plz do not do this. BE WARNED.





Hi, To access or enter motherboard BIOS settings, on powerup either F2 or Del. If you just want to remove the password in your Dell Optiplex > The BIOS password may be cleared by removing the password jumper (PSWD) on the motherboard. This will also clear all CMOS settings: Open your casing, on your motherboard. find the CMOS password reset jumper (3-pin) on the motherboard; Remove the jumper from pins 1 and 2 and put it on pins 2 and 3 for about 5 seconds. Replace back the jumper on pins 1 and 2. Hope this be of help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.
