Dell :: CPU Locked At 800mhz

Feb 21, 2008

I have an XPS Gen 2 Laptop. I know its like ancient now but after 3 years its still running pretty well. The problem is I'm getting severe fps drops in games and I realized something strange happened to my cpu.

The cpu load is going crazy because the cpu clock speed is locked at 800mhz.

I thought it was something wrong with SpeedStep but I turned that off and nothing changed. My cpu will not go past 800mhz.

Why is my cpu downclocked and what can I do to make it normal again. Dell BIOS doesn't really let u manipulate anything.'

CPU-Z shows

Core Speed: 798 MHz
Multiplier: x 6
Bus Speed: 133 Mhz
Rated FSB: 532

Dell :: M1210 Windows Start-up Locked Up

Jul 17, 2007

i've been aware of the bluetooth widcomm and the logitech software causes the moment where you'll get a black screen after the windows loading screen then you just need to restart the laptop to enter into windows.

i really think that this is the cause in my case because whenever i disabled the logitech webcam, i don't get any locked up, although when i enable it, then restart the machine, i don't usually get the locked up.

The weird part is that when i leaved the laptop at least for some few hours (note that i enabled the logitech webcam here), the issue arises, so i need to restart the laptop using the power button once to get inside windows.

My solution here is to disable the logitech webcam which i don't like because whenever i need the camera the laptop will ask me to restart the computer.

I would like to ask if there is any other solution for this? any new software?
i don't like to uninstall any software unless its really the solution.

Dell Latitude E7240 :: Device Is Locked

Apr 4, 2014

We have bought a bunch of Latitudes E7240 and deployed them with the new Dell Data Protection | Security Tools (DDP|ST).Now we have discovered that if you attempt to login with the wrong credentials the device (HDD) will be locked.This is expected as it is one of the purpose of having Disk encryption enabled BUT if a user accidentally lock the HDD by typing wrong credentials you would expect to be able to UNLOCK it with the admin password. (You create one when first enabling DDP|ST)

So, the user forgot he's credentials and the screen only shows "The device is locked, contact your administrator" and with NO OPTIONS what so ever! How do I, as the administrator unlock the HDD? Where do I type the admin password?

Dell :: Inspiron 1000 Bios Password Locked....

Aug 4, 2009

Everytime I boot up the laptop, I get halted with the blue box asking me for the bios password.

I know this laptop is quite different and that even removing the cmos battery for like a day is not going to help. There is no 24xxx chip that I can short on the mobo.

Then I found SST39VF040 bios chip on the back of the mobo and also found a 93lc86 bios chip too .....

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Has Locked Up Continually From Literally Day One

Aug 27, 2012

I bought my Inspiron over the telephone direct from Dell about two years back on the strength of my satisfaction with a Dell PC some five years earlier.  However I have been so disappointed with it and wish I'd bought a cheapy somewhere.  It continually locks up with the hard drive working away on goodness knows what - this can last from a few minutes to leaving it running all night and it will still be locked in the morning - the cursor actually still moves and you can move between open pages but that's it.  I wrote three recorded delivery letters to Dell which were ignored. 

On line they run through a test and declare it is all operating fine, 'that's it', no problem!  I paid £50 for a professional to look at it and he suggested we reload the software.  This was supposed to be held in a seperate protected part of the hard drive (as it did not come with software discs) which, after talking to his contact at Dell, he confirmed didn't exist!  To cut my losses he arranged for me to buy, more money, a software disc from Dell that he later re-installed for me.  The result was absolutely no improvement.  I know a few computer 'fans' who have all said 'I'll have a look at it' but all have been baffled.  So I have continued to suffer this appauling performance that can lock up sometimes every couple of hours, sometimes every couple of minutes, it can even be locked when I first start it and it then merrily plays with itself for as long as it fancies.

Dell Latitude E6400 :: Hard Disk Locked By BIOS After Installing OS

Jan 27, 2015

Back before Xmas, I had to reinstall the os so at the same time I changed the password for the hard disk that is set in the bios, before installing the os.

Problem is after the OS had installed and said it was shutting down to reboot, it never shut down properly so after 5-10mins I pushed the power button to force it to shut down.

Switched it back on, typed in the new hard disk password and it wouldnt accept it. Tried again but no success so tried the old hard disk password but even that didnt work. Anyway I've locked the hard disk now, not updated the bios or anything but wondered if there is anything I can do or Dell can do to unlock it?

Its an E6400 with the finger print scanner (can post the tag number) , I know its old laptop but still got all the receipts and everything to prove its not nicked and owned by the original owner.

Dell Latitude D830 :: Can Enter BIOS But Settings Are Locked With Password

Dec 9, 2013

Recently I purchased a Dell Latitude D830 motherboard as a replacement for the damaged one in my own system.

The seller didn't tell me that the system has a customized bios and a password, instead he announced it as 'password free'. The board is working and I can enter the BIOS but all settings are locked with a password.

As the seller refuses to take it back, I need to reset the system. The first owner of the board is known and I have the service tag ready. Is there any chance to reflash an original DELL BIOS and to reset the password(s)?

Acer :: Ferrari 3200 Locked In Bios

Aug 29, 2007

My old Acer Ferrari was protected with a bios password that i personally used. However I was giving away my old laptop and tried to clear out my bios password for its new user.

What happened was i simply put nothing when it asks to enter the new password in the bios..i just hit enter. Now the system keeps asking for a password when i have none to give. Even the old password doesn't work, as does just hitting enter. I don't know if anyone still knows tricks of the trade for this old system but anything could be helpful.

I've been trying to find a backdoor password but I can't find any that works and Acer won't help me cause I don't have warranty anymore since the laptop is old.
