Preferred Solution: Help with Bios pass for dell d620

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Help with Bios pass for dell d620

Good luck. I do not know of any Dell more difficult to fix than a Dell Inspiron d620. It is known as unrepairable on this forum, when an unknown password is the issue. Tell us exactly what you men by "...with a bios pass..."? Did they give you an incorrect password?
The EEPROM that holds the password is not replaceable due to soldering issues, and the programming of it is different than other Dells so that an experienced EEPROM programmer cannot deal with it either. The shorting techniques used to delete other Dell passwords do not work with the D620.

There are no master passwords.. if someone has put a password on the bios which it sounds like there is, the only way to get rid of it is to flash the bios chip, and i wouldn't do it yourself unless you know what your doing, so if you don't get someone who does.

Hi Rustam,

I have been searching for months - please can you help me with this?

I have a d620 - #J7WNB2J-595B - i have the grey screen.

Can you help me unlock this please.

I am very new to this forum so please excuse if this is the wrong place to post this.

Thanks
 

A:Dell d620 Bios password

No, your problem is not fixable without sending the computer to Dell.
This has been well established on this forum. You will not find the answer here... because there is no answer. The D620 appears to have a problem that only a EEPROM programmer with the proper programming tools, and software, and code books, can fix.

A:Dell Latitude D620 BIOS Password

Short answer: You need the original password.
That unit has been refurbished by a Dell-authorized shop (as all with the 595B are) so the restore discs cannot be used.
All of the suggestions your tried, are known not to work in that model... The D600 and D620 are the most difficult of all Dells to fix. You will likely need to replace the motherboard with one known to work. Most of the boards on eBay have the same problems you have.

Its service tag is f86mgc1-595b

I was able to remove one password with removing the cmos battery, but it still has the main passwords in the bios locked. The unlock -setup- password, admin password are locked. I reset the system password by removing the cmos battery.

problem - dell computer boots up to "Dell Logo" screen, the "status bar" on that screen that normally goes across does not move at all, it does not even begin to move, it is stuck there, computer will not recognize any external devices such as mouse. keyboard, so i can not get into bios settings, and can not boot from a cd or usb
 
things i have tried....
 
- unplug computer hold down power button for 60 seconds
- remove cmos battery and jumper pins, let computer sit for hours
- replace cmos batter with known good battery
- replace power supply with known good power supply
- remove ram sticks
- clean ram sticks/slots
- replace ram sticks one at a time trying both slots with both sticks
- disconnected EVERYTHING from motherboard except fans, power, and ram
- tested hard drive, it is 100% okay
 
all of the above give the exact same result, nothing changes,
 
is it safe to assume this is a motherboard issue?

The Dell D620 is probably the toughest of all computers to deal with when you have a BIOS or a password problem. I doubt you will have much luck, unless you know somebody who can program EEPROMS... Service Tag can be fixed if you do a Google search, but that won't help you if the board is password protected.

Hi,
Two questions.
1) Can you direct me to find the latest version of bios for my
D620-5133 emachines laptop (VISTA)
I currently have bios version 1.03

I have googled around but cannot find it :-(

2) I purchased a replacement battery on ebay for the same laptop.
It works very well. Except after about 3 or 4 days, it will no longer charge.
It says "plugged in, not charging"
If I shutdown and remove the battery it is good for another 3 to 4 days.
The seller asked me to discharge it and that will fix it.
Well, no help.
He now says I need the latest bios.
Does that make sense?
I kinda thought all the battery charging was done in pure hardware.
And my old battery has no problem charging, it just does not hold a charge.
thanks
gordon

My Dell Latitude D620 latop has had problems with the touchpad/blue nobby (not sure what they call that). The click buttons don't work either. I used to be able to just restart my laptop, but the problem seems to continue.

I had this problem at one point, and I reformatted with success. But it just started again.

The only settings I have changed were the settings for power (turning off monitor/hdd etc). I have tried installing fresh drivers from dell, old drivers, enabling/disabling the touchpad in the BIOS, and I've given up and now just using a USB wireless mouse.

When I put in the little Dell Resource CD, it doesn't even say that I have the hardware. Also, when I navigate to the Device Manager, there isn't a 'Mice and other pointing devices' tree. Finally, when I startup the laptop, go to Control Panel>Mouse>Hardware, it shows all the information as blank.

Any ideas? I would appreciate it.

No. Only a version from Dell will work with his product key. And the one found by Jelly Bean is the wrong one - it is used on all Dell machines of that model and won't reinstall from the Dell disk. You need to use the number on the sticker on the machine. If his recovery partition is still there, restore using that.

I read some places that on older dells there was some metal touching trackpad components causing this problem- I dont know whether to take this laptop apart, i dont want to end up causing any further problems. thanks for any help

Remove the keyboard. Clean the keyboard, mouse pad, and visible components with a can of Dust Off or other treated canned air.

Like many here, I have a password issue, but it's not with the bios. The organization my wife works for bartered for her to keep her laptop when she resigned in exchange for some ongoing side-work. Unfortunately the tech at the outfit is upset 'cuz he wanted that laptop for himself and has no intention of giving her administrator priviledge so we can disjoin it from the domain and install our home printers. (He answers to a different boss than the one who had the authority to give my wife ownership to the laptop, long story. If we fight it he'll find a way to "help" her by swapping the D620 for some relic from the junk pile). The machine works fine, but we can't install printers or do various other things due to lack of user admin priviledges for her user account.

I can hit F12 to boot from CD-rom, but can't do a new install from cd because i get a pci.sys bluesceen which I'm assuming is happening because of the hdd having password protection on it. Question is, if I buy my wife a new sata drive (the D620 is sata) will it work fine without further problems installing windows?

I've already checked dell.com to be sure I can download all the required drivers, that all seems ok.

Thanks, Bob

I dont wanna call it lines but i think its what they are, you can only tell the difference in small areas like the outline of the mouse, or the letters in the menu, overall it looks like it has a bad resolution. but i know that's not it.

Hi Everyone,

Ok, I did a little research and this is as far as I have got:

Having bought an OCZ Vertex 2 120GB SSD and tried cloning my WinXP install to the new drive, having had issues with Hibernate and Sleep and reading that my SSD might degrade over time as WinXP wasnt designed with SSD's in mind I bought and installed Windows 7 Home Premium (32bit) on my Dell Latitude D620.

After that I wanted to make sure that all the latest features were working. I had heard about TRIM and so went about seeing if it was doing its thing.

Most sites described checking to see if Scheduled Defragmenting was turned off and if when a USB pen is plugged in the Readyboost option appears. It turns out that Defrag Scheduling was on AND Readyboost is an option.

I read I should make sure that AHCI was enabled in my BIOS. No such option in my BIOS.
Strange I thought, so I checked to make sure I had the latest BIOS available. I do, A10.

I read furthur that only the Dx30 models had these options in the BIOS.
The Dell D620 chipset is apparently limited to Sata150 or something...?

So where does this leave me? I gather that I may not be able to get TRIM support, so is my SSD going to start slowing down? Is there anything I can do to either work around this, or make sure that the speed I have now will remain a constant?

Many thanks for your time...

I have an old(ish) Dell Latitude D620 and I'd like to upgrade the CPU.  The specs are as follows:

Looking at the compatible products for the Intel 845GM chipset (http://ark.intel.com/products/chipsets/22816) they do, but I thought I'd better check here first before buying.  Would the change from 2MB L2 cache to 4MB affect anything?
 
Many thanks!

A:Dell Latitude D620 CPU upgrade...

Either of those will work -- just don't pay an excessive amount for one, since the speed boost will be incremental - not dramatic.

This is a weird problem here, I'm trying to restore my old d620 I turn the power on and I see the led doing their thing but I have a black screen, but this is the wierd problem is that if I hold the fn +lcd/crt I can see my log in and I can move the mouse but once I let go of these buttons, it goes back black again but as I mentioned before if I hold the combo keys again I can see my screen... any ideas????

I've taken out the battery, memory, held down the power button for 2minutes, nothing, swapped out my memory, still nothing....

I'll continue to google but hopefully someone here will point me in the right direction....

Thanks in advanced..
Okay so I plugged my LAPTOP to an CRT and it says out of frequency, I'll try changing the display settings back to it's native look and see what happens... (pleased that I know my pc boots up and goes into windows)

Hi, I have a dell latitude d620. My daughter had it a college and the wireless was working fine. She came home this weekend and the wireless and direct connect do not work. When I do an ipconfig /all nothing happens, the radio or the network indicator do not appear in the task bar, however, when I look at the device hardware, the wireless card shows as enable and no issues. Also, the wireless switch on the left side is in the on position but the light does not come on. Any ideas?

thanks
kevin

Intel Core Duo is a 32-bit processor. Intel Core 2 Duo is 64-bit. You won't be able to install Windows 7 RC 64-bit on that PC.

Hi,

I just installed Win7 on my Dell Latitude D620 Laptop. Now some of the functions (scrolling mainly) are not working. I have been unable to find where I can change the settings. In addition, when I click on the screen and, for instance, begin to type, the cursor will randomly move to where the pointer is. As you can imagine, this is very frustrating. Your help is most appreciated.

Thank you,

Tim

There's a driver for the touchpads... make sure it's not disabled from startup under msconfig.
