My emachine notebook is need to reformat but the bios has a password and i forgot it. i need to clear the cmos but mi cant find the internal battery.what the best solution in this problem? please help


To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link http://www.fixya.com/support/r7229632-reset_or_remove_bios_password

In case of your laptop I would suggest using software from Hiren's Boot CD to clear the BIOS (there's Kill CMOS on there that wipes the BIOS).

When i start up my emachine laptop it tells me to push f2 when i do it,it ask me for the password i type in the password i made to access my computer and it says thats the wrong one


IT'S EITHER THE HIDDEN ADMIN ACCOUNT OR THE BIOS PASSWORD iF IT'S THE HIDDEN PASSWORD IT MAY BE ADMIN...ADMINISTRATOR, OR JUST LEAVE IT BLANK.
IF IT'S THE BIOS PASSWORD DISCONNECT THE CMOS BATTERY FOR 5 MINUTES AND THEN PUT BATTERY BACK IN AND THAT SHOULD CLEAR PASSWORD.

Cmos checksum error & keyboard not function


CMOS checksum errors
Explanation: A checksum is computed as an error-detecting code, to protect the BIOS settings stored in the CMOS memory. Each time the system is booted this number is recomputed and checked against the stored value. If they do not match, an error message is generated to tell you that the CMOS memory contents may have been corrupted and therefore some settings may be wrong. BIOSes react in different ways to encountering this sort of error. Some will warn the user and then continue on with whatever settings were in the CMOS. Others will assume that the settings that were in the CMOS were corrupted and will load default values stored in the BIOS chip "for safety reasons". The error message will indicate which your system is doing.
Diagnosis: The most common cause of checksum errors in CMOS is a battery that is losing power. Viruses can also affect CMOS settings, and motherboard problems can also affect the stored values.
Recommendation: Follow the instructions in this section to address the CMOS corruption. You should make sure that all of the BIOS settings in the system are correct, by rebooting the system, going into BIOS setup and double-checking all the values (hopefully against a recent BIOS settings backup).

Cant get 4600i started. powers up but will not get past intro screen. screen shows F1 to continue and when i press F1 it tells me to press it again to retry reboot, F2 for setup options.


you need to go to cmos or bios setup, set all the date and time and proper boot setting there save and exit, it is a cmos or bios failure that causes these problems try replacing the cmos battery if the message still continues

If you have created a backupcopy of your CMOS settings then use them to restore the settings to the correctvalues. To find the problem itself:

Bios lock


Hi,
It sounds as though your computer has the wrong time in the CMOS. The CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductors) is the chip that holds the basic startup information for the BIOS, system and its peripherals while the system is turned on and off.

If you can get into the BIOS check the date and time settings and make sure they are correct.

It may also be a case of the CMOS battery going out. When this happens your computer will tend to not keep the correct time. They are cheap and relatively easy to replace. Before buying a new batter your can try to take it out and let it sit for about 10 minutes or so to reset the CMOS and then go put the battery back in and go into the BIOS and reset the clock.

Hopefully taking the batter out or replacing it will get past your lock icon asking for the password. Just search for CMOS or BIOS default password for your brand of laptop.

Wrong BIOS Id


Go to Compaq and download the original bios from them. If that takes then you should be able to change it to what ever you like.
