Set the BIOS to boot a floppy first, see if you can load a boot floppy. If not, then you have a serious hardware problem, did you change any settings in the BIOS? You may need to bring it to a shop for service. If you are able to boot, then you have a hard drive problem. Check your detection settings, and download and run a drive diagnostic tool from the hard drive manufacturer to see if the drive has failed. It wouldn't hurt to reseat the cabling either.

SOURCE: asking password before booting

Sounds like somebody installed a hard drive password, and there is no way to get around it but to replace the hard drive and start over.

SOURCE: I CANNOT BOOT MY IBM THINKPAD 2367..HELP

Both errors are related to the backup battery which is located under the main battery. It is probably dead. You can get one on eBay for $3.29 w/free shipping or pay a shop $20 to put one in. If you do it yourself be very gentle plugging it into the tricky little slot - it is possible to break the connector loose from the motherboard but it is an easy repair if you have patience and dexterity. As for the password, try just hitting enter. It is the supervisor password to change the BIOS settings and was probably never set.
Hope this helps.
Jon

Blue screen on envy 13 admin password prompt with system disabled - CAN YOU FIX HP ERROR CODE 64449838


I can only help with the system admin password (presumed windows). You will have to manufacture a "Password Reset Disk" on another PC or laptop (preferably running same OS - you will need your product key COA number). Instructions on MS website. Also - check your BIOS settings are OK when setting to boot on the password reset disk. That will be F1 or DEL probably on power up.Good Luck.

Wont run windows at all. Says: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM


You have a corrupt registry and it needs to be replaced.
Doing a System Restore will do this. Since you cannot run it from the hard drive, you will have to boot from a Windows DVD.
Here is the procedure

You did not specify which version of Windows you have so I just picked W7 as an example. If you need more specific instructions, you need to give more specific information.

The compuyter made a very funny running sound and then the screen with black. I can not start up the laptop, but 2 blue power buttons are on.


You got 2 options:
1-Start the pc and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl>+alt>+del> keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows. Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts". Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.
2-Some computer systems have a setting in the BIOS Setup to disable the password. The BIOS Setup is accessed with the F1, F2 or DEL key during boot up. If you have forgotten your password, most systems have a jumper on the motherboard that can be pulled off to clear the password. If there is no jumper available, you can also remove the battery for 5 minutes to clear CMOS.

My thinkpad 2628 wont recognize my hard drive and tells me i dont have a operating system on it


This means it has crashed. You will need to use your recovery disk that came with the laptop to re-install Windows and the system drivers.

8. Put in your Admin Password or press "Enter".
