20 Most Recent Dell Latitude E5500 Laptop Questions & Answers

Hello, how long does it take to shut down? If you a chance to check and have a diagnosis (I attached a link) it would be much easier to fix it; The other option would be to visit the dell store or a reliable mechanic to make some measurements of the different elements. I exhort you to watch a video so you can have an idea and know the proportions of this problem and if you have no knowledge of electronics it's better that you don't do it, please. https://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/quicktest

Go to the start menu and click where it says run or type in right above the start button in the white field and type ncpa.cpl then push enter. Where it says wireless network, right click on it then click enable. If needed, right click again and view wireless networks or Connect/Disconnect then connect to the wireless network. Also there could be a tiny switch on the right side of the computer where you turn on the computer, there might be a button to click to turn it blue. Hope this helps

Did you get a recovery disk that the first buyer should have made? If not, you may need to borrow the exact same one from someone and use your key which you should have gotten when you bought it and reload the system. That's only if the seller can't or won't tell you what his is.

Hello, Either your charger isn't working or the battery you just got is bad, take it back and exchange, if that doesn't work then your charger isn't charging.

ensure that the correct keyboard is set, the region and language in control panel should match your region and language.
If the settings are correct ensure that there is no mistake in the keyboard selection in your system tray, (the bottom right corner of your screen.)
If all is as it should be fit a n external keyboard and see if that works okay...if it does you need a new keyboard.

Check Ebay for these, they are cheap and plentiful on that website usually.

A replacement battery must be the EXACT same power spec as the original in DC volts and Milliamps, or you could damage the Mobo components. Some aftermarket batteries do not work well. The connections may be different.

Hi Mar Mar,
As far as I know once the you forgot your BIOS password no more options to get it anymore. You may also wanted to talk to Dell Tech Support 1-877-542-3355 in order for them to check if they can still do something about it. Worse scenario would be replacing your MOBO.

Remove the CMOS battery for 30minutes.. Fit a new one and try again.

The BIOS-password exists for _your_ protection; if a thief is in possession of your computer, the password prevents the thief from using the stolen computer.

As the owner of the computer, find the original sales-receipt, to prove ownership, and telephone Dell, to get assistance from Dell to bypass that password.

Have you tried safe mode? If it works in safe mode it could be a corrupt video driver.
