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?
Theere isw a specific range of battery serial numbers that are being recalled by HP. If you have a bettery that matches the reported serial number range you should contact HP immediately for a replacement battery.
I, being one of the multitudes of sad souls who are now experienceing the end of thier 7900GS's 12-16 month life span decided to look around the net to see if this really is as big a problem as I thought, and I can't belive how many people are posting that thier 7900GS is dying just a couple months after the warranty expires, it's nearly proof that the card is being cooked in our e1705/9400's to the point of failure. and fortunatly for dell, they all seem to be failing JUST outside of the warranty... mine failed just 2 months after my warranty expired.
Well I say we create a petition to send to dell to ask for a recall of these sub-par cards they sold us in our very expensive new laptops. The worst part is now that thier cards are failing they are charging 400 dollars just for the part!!! It's criminal and we must do something.
Please post here if you'd like to add your name and or story to the many already posted. I just want a single thread where we can all post about this problem so I can show dell just how bad this problem is.
I don't know if the 7900gs was made using sub-par parts or if it's the lack of the second heat pipe or both but the fact is these cards are not lasting to term in WAY too many laptops, don't wait for yours to die next post here so we can try and get dell to do something about this!
I have a Split 13 x2 M110dx. It's been awhile since we've used this PC and I was getting it running again when I ran into the ADMINISTRATOR PASSWRD OR POWER ON PASSWORD problem. As you know, the 3rd try locked me out with the error code SYSTEM DISALED 63389696. Now what do I do??
My son added an administrator or logon password to my HP Pavilion g7 notebook. I know the password but I want to remove this option from the computer so that I dont have to input the password everytime I turn on the computer. I called HP but my warranty expired about 2 months ago.
I have a HP 2000 model2b19WM and it ask's for administrator password or power on password and I have no clue what it is. After 3 tries, I get system disabled 92419063. This is my grandsons laptop that was returned to him from a friend.
