Dell Vostro 1540 :: Unable To Set Admin Password On BIOS

Feb 28, 2013

I've got a problem with setting the admin password on bios A02 at Vostro 1540. Machine just doesn't switch to "locked" mode, after reboot it goes straight to OS, like bios password never been set. Is it defective machine/firmware or maybe I've missed something?

Dell :: Vostro 3700 Weight And Proc

Apr 11, 2010

I know there are a couple of 3x00 Vostro threads, but some are very long and the other did not seem to have an answer for this question.

First, I am very interested in this new Vostro. It seems a good configuration and design for the price. I especially love the 17" screen at < 6 lbs. Seems too good to be true.

Does anyone have experience with this machine? Is the weight including the battery and everything? It is a pound lighter than the 16" Sony F I am using. I like the F, but this Vostro seems a little more in line for me (PhD, heavy stats and datasets). My wife woul appropriate the Sony if I were to pull the trigger on the Dell.

Also, the i5-520m to i7-???qm (dual to quad, differing clocks and all). I am thinking the i5 may be the way to go. Most of my stuff is not designed for 4-cores, 8 threads, etc.

Dell Vostro 3700 :: Plugged In Not Charging

Jan 7, 2013

I have a Dell Vostro 3700 which has developed a fault, it will not charge the battery, and windows just shows as "plugged in, not charging.".I have done my research the past few days so I will clear up the following;I have updated BIOS and installed the Dell Battery Manager in order to activate charging as I know it can be disabled.

I have been in the BIOS menu in order to search for an option to supposedly disable/enable battery charging but there is no option in there (unless I missed it, but I have checked several times).BIOS states "adapter type" to be "unknown" and when laptop is first turned on I get a warning to say the adapter cannot be determined and the battery may not charge (which I am assuming leads to the problem).

I have another dell laptop (Studio 1735) that uses the exact same adapter type. Both adapters work and charge in my 1735, both don't work in the Vostro (which I assume eliminates the adapter as a suspect).I have purchased 2 new batteries off eBay, one genuine that is supposedly new although slightly used, and another brand new rip off, all 3 of the batteries will not charge (which I assume eliminates the batteries as suspect)

Dell Vostro 3700 :: Overheating And Freeze Ups

Apr 6, 2013

I bought a Vostro 3700 i7-720q used on ebay. After I bought it I found it would freeze. I eliminated everything I though it could be (i/o conflict, drivers, etc) and nothing worked. This was probably the reason it was sold on ebay. I noticed how hot the machine and fan got. I researched upgradeding the cpu to an i7-940xm and when got the chip planned to put in best thermal transfer to solve the freeze up problem I conculded was due to heat. I thought to be Powerstrate xtreme to be the best thermal transfer to use during the cpu switchout.

I pull the heat sink and its obivous why my machine was hot. The thermal past was a crummy job. I cleaned off heat sink with arctic Ice cleaner, put powerstrate xtreme on cpu and replaced the cpu with a i7-940. Boots up and has been running fine AND it is soooo much cooler.

Getting to the heat sink IS NOT an easy task in the Vostro 3700 - I love my Vostro 3700 BUT it is a very delicate task to remove the keyboard, palm rest and base in order to get to the motherboard and heatsink. I wouldn't do it again.

Dell Vostro 3700 :: C000021 - Fatal System Error On Laptop

Feb 24, 2013

After an automatic update of a Dell Vostro 3700 laptop with Windows 7 on it, I got the following problem : 

- First, I got the black screen with the information "Applying update operation 3 of 18014 (_0000000000000000_)
- Then it shows a quick blue screen and then the computer restarts directly. 
- I have been able to display the complete blue screen message. Here it is : 

                    STOP : c000021a {Fatal System Error}

The initial session process or system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x00000000 (0xc0000034 0x001005b0). The system has been shut down

I tried to start the recovery tools of Windows but it keeps on saying that it's not able to recover the system. With this information :

- Signature 2 : 6.1.7600.16385

- Signature 4 : 21200238

System version : 6.1.7600.

I tried the folowing operation : 

- Start in safe mode : Always the blue screen
- Restore and old version : Same recovery error message
- Start in command line : always the blue screen. 

Is there any way to restore this computer?

Dell Vostro 3700 :: Deletes Files From USB Thumb Drive - Bootup Stops Or Freezes

Mar 19, 2013

I've created a MSDOS boot disk on a USB thumb drive for a legacy application. After selecting F12 and booting from the USB thumb drive, the bootup stops or freezes. I'll power off the machine, boot back  into windows, and try to read the USB drive. One of two things happen,

A. the drive is corrupted with gobbeldy characters or won recognize at all, or
B. files will be deleted, autoexec.bat, config.sys,

There is no rhyme or reason, I've replicated this 20 times and got different results. I've used 5 different drives, two of which are brand new.  Sometimes the laptop will freeze with a solid loud beep. I just was able to find an identical 3700 to test, and the same things are happening.

I've been able to boot this on over 20 different laptops, all core 2 duos, but moving to the core i3 on this 3700, this happens. Unfortunately I have no other newer machine to test this on, although it booted from a 3 month old compaq with an AMD chipset.

I've disabled/enabled the execution bit in bios, other than that what's causing this, I've never seen a BIOS do anything like this before.

Dell XPS M1530 :: Blue Lights Blink Then Go Out And No Apparent Boot Sequence Or Illumination On Screen

Oct 3, 2012

I recently suffered a complete failure of my xps m1530 which was purchased new from Dell in 2008.  The blue lights would blink then go out and no apparent boot sequence or illumination on the screen.

The suggestions led to a diagnostic determination that the problem was likely a faulty Nvidia chip which, of course, is integrated into the motherboard.  The solution was either to replace the MB ($165) or to watch a Youtube video regarding a method whereby a small torch or even a hair dryer might be used to reestablish the pin connections.  I watched the video, used the torch as suggested, and my computer now works as it should.

Dell Latitude E6410 :: Don't Know BIOS Admin Password

Nov 13, 2014

I bought aDell Latitude E6410 laptop yesterday and every time it turns on it says no boot or something. So I push the enter button and it resets. Then when it shows the dell logo again I press F12 and go to the boot sequence and its set on cd drive and not the internal HDD. So I choose to redo that all over again and then press boot from internal HDD and it works no problem but its a lot to go through just to start a laptop. How can I figure out how to change the admin password so I can set the boot sequence right.
