    D610 HDD 2nd Drive Module

    Thanks, however I am curious why you put (refurbished) by the -595 - I do not have a refurbished computer, I purchased a Dell 2nd HDD Adapter Drive Module and installed a 2.5 inch HD. This is when I get the grey screen asking for a password, the D610 laptop does not have any other passwords in the bios. I have looked through many postings and do not see any info that applies to my problem. The HD I installed in the module is brand new, and can be read through a USB port but as soon as I install it into the Dell Module, it asks for a password????

    Nearly always, the -595B on the end of a service tag is an indicator that it is a refurbished computer... or a previously leased computer that has been returned to Dell for reconditioning at then end of a lease or rental contract... This also indicates that the recovery disc set will not work on it. It can also be a computer sold on the Home Shopping Network, or special low priced Dell computers.
    Did you buy a refurbished hard drive or a special price hard drive.

    Discuss it with US Dell tech support.. they may have a broader definition

    Horse manure! Older models with the D35B systems when BIOS updated by dell or a refurber would become -595B systems, but brand new machines starting with the C610/Inspiron 4100 machines came with the -595b systems. You really should check out your facts before posting nonsense.

    Thank you Kimsland for the advice, I tried the passwords - but no luck. And no, this clam doesn't have a floppy.

    I took the BIG leap - followed Paragon33's advice and pulled the case apart (in fact during my research phase I even found a link to the service manual :approve: thanks again to Paragon33 ) pulled the processor and wired a switch across 3 & 6 of the 24C02. Took about 3 tries to get the timing right to pull the trigger but on the 3rd try it went into manufacturing mode !!! At that point the keyboard would only respond with beeps, so I shut it down. On the next power up I was able to go into setup, paswords DISABLED !!! The curious thing I found was that during my "lockout" period there were 4 passwords Admin, Setup, Config and HD. Once the 24C02 process was complete the config option was gone - don't really care since I won't be needing it - just an observation.

    Anyway my plan was to run the UBCD4win from the only other device I could configure to boot from. Set CD as boot device - popped in the magic disk and pfffffffffffffft - no joy. Seems my disk won't run on this former door stop. I'll work on that later - needs to boot in vga mode to be compible or I need to build one with the Dell driver. Good new is from the boot menu on disk is offline registry and password editor - remade W2K administrator account with no password - save - reboot without CD and BINGO !!! Log in as admin and life is good. Now all I have to do is put the 18 gazzilion screws back in the holes and clean it up !!!

    Thank you again Paragon33 - you da man !!!

    Oh, and before I forget one little tech tip - that 30 guage wire wrap stuff is a biatch to work with - once you have threaded it from the pads on the chip use a small piece of painters tape to temporarily act as a strain relief whilst you reisert the CPU and keyboard. I had to redo the wire once as I must have nicked it when I stripped it- and it doesn't take many bends to break to start with !!

    Dell D400

    Does anyone have a trouble shooting guide for the D400 laptop? I've done something wrong/reassembled something backward as the machine doesn't boot up (It was before starting).(I've got a copy of the Dell service manual without any trouble shooting guide)

    When the power button is pressed all the lights on the control panel light up followed by the central "A" blinking for 5 seconds before the power is automatically switched off by the laptop.

    Any ideas gratefully received

    If you have dismantled and re-assembled it you may have a cpu heatsink that isn't properly attached causing cpu shutdown.

    Look for a loose wire or cable inadvertently disconnected elsewhere in the box... follow each wire down to its connections. Look for bent plug pins and other anomalys.
    If you removed and reinistalled the cpu, take it back out to check for a bent pin... then if bent, be extremely cautious about straightening it. They break off easily.
    As CCT suggests, the CPU and heatsink can seem correctly installed, when they are not properly seated. The system won't boot if it detects even a slight problem.
    CPU and cooling fans are sometimes easily plugged in backwards.
    Test your power supply by trying it in another unit, or borrow one from another computer to test. Or better, use a power supply tester... they run $9 to $20 at computer stores and online.
