My lap top shut down and would not restart. I called the company and they said I needed to reinstall programs. They sent me two discs, but I cand get them to load.


Step 1:
Restart your computer During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key this will vary depending on your computer and operating system Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

Got a dell latitude e6400series forgot bios password can i fix this problem ?


Welcome to Fixya

Common procedure in resetting the password is by resetting the motherboard by reseating the CMOS battery. You need to access you motherbard and locate the circular silver metallic object on the motherboard. This is much bigger in size compared to a wristwatch battery. CAREFULLY remove the CMOS battery, avoid touching it with your fingers, and leave it out for about 120 seconds. This will flush the CMOS memory which stores the BIOS password and all other configuration. Put the the battery back in and turn on the computer.

Other procedure is the jumper reset. Some, but not all, motherboard manufacturers provide a set of three jumpers on their motherboards that provide you with the ability to clear the Bios/CMOS settings, thereby allowing them to be reset. For the most part this is used when the Bios/CMOS data becomes scrambled and you need to clear the Bios/CMOS in order to return the computer to a functional state. This same procedure, however, can be used to clear passwords from the Bios/CMOS setup. Typically a jumper will be found across pins #1 and #2 as the default position, and by shutting the computer down, unplugging the power cord and then moving the jumper so that it is across pins #2 and #3 will clear the Bios/CMOS settings.

If procedures above has been done and yet you are getting same results. Its time to call you manufacturer and have the motherboard re-flushed or re-imaged.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Hi promano67

When you "start" the computer, and the {"Screen"} displays a "Error Message."[CMOS] "error checksum!"

Settings: "Default" loaded.A "checksum error" shows that:

The ("Boot-up Settings "have been changed?"), ie. "Booting OS."

*Boot File 'missing'.

"This can 'occur' if the computer was "shut-down unexpectedly."

Force Shut-down : Power lost; due to 'low battery...'

A ("Power Surge") can cause this 'problem' also.

"What 'happens is that the [CMOS] settings are lost!".
"To fix the problem!"

Do the following:

  • "Restart / Boot the computer.

  • Next, verify if the 'error message' displays?

  • If you are still getting the message?

  • "You will have to "Remove the CMOS battery form the computer!"

  • Shut-down the computer.

  • "Unplug the computer from the {Wall Out-let}.

  • Remove the Lithium battery from the "Notebook."

  • There is a compartment (underneath) the "Notebook that 'store' the CMOS battery."

  • "You will need a {very small Phillips screwdriver}._953.jpg *Remove the CMOS battery for: [30 minutes].

  • !Important: If you have to do it again?

  • Remove the CMOS battery for a {'longer amount of time'}.

  • Replace the "CMOS battery."

  • Next, "Only plug the Power Adapter into the computer.

  • "Do not - replace the "Lithium battery!"

  • Once you have completed these 'task'.

  • "Restart the computer."

  • "Press the [F2] key, to 'enter' the CMOS / BIOS Setup!" _951.jpg

  • Next, 'reset' (all) "Values to the Default Settings."

  • "Press the [F10] key to 'Save' the changes!"

!Important: "Take a 'moment to rate the help', so I can get 'credit' for the work.

Thank you!" - paul7of9

Dell Latitude D620 BIOS password help!!! I bought a Dell D620 and I noticed that some BIOS features are password protected. The previous owner said he doesn't know anything about it, so I'm not sure what...


Dell usually sets a default password as password or admin Try those first. If no luck go into the bios setup by continually tapping the exc key while the computer boots. If your licky you may be able to set yourself as administrator and give yourself admin rights. With admin rights you can do anything.

I have an Averatec 5400 laptop. It will not hold its cmos settings. Everytime it boots up it reverts to January 2003 and I have to reset the settings. Any help would be appreciated.


You need to replace the CMOS battery. This will be under a "Flap" under the laptop. It is a small round thin Cell. 3.6 v similar to a Watch battery. link below to see what I mean. http://www.alllaptops.co.uk/Cmosbatt/Averatec.htm

Cmos checksum bad...usb current status detected system shut down 15 sec


Situation Remedies If you have encountered this error and would like to fix your computer, here are some remedies for each situation:
CMOS Battery Not Functioning Properly: If you suspect your CMOS battery is not functioning properly you can easily change it. Before changing your battery, reboot your computer to make sure that the error still exists. If it does, go into your CMOS and write down all of the settings. If all settings are lost, you can usually get them from your computer manufacturer. Now locate the battery and remove it, you might need to consult your computers manual or tech support to remove your battery. Take down the CMOS batteries information such as volt, size, etc. Once you have your new battery, you can replace it and reenter your CMOS settings. If your battery was the cause of the CMOS Checksum Bad Error, you should have remedied the problem.
Your BIOS has Been Updated (either by you or possibly a virus): If your BIOS has been updated recently, your CMOS settings may have become reset. Make sure that the values entered in the BIOS are correct or simply reset them to the default settings. If you believe that a virus updated your BIOS settings, run a virus scan and make sure that the BIOS settings are back to the default.
The Computer Was Shut Down Improperly: Sometimes when running MS Windows, if you shut down your laptop or desktop without first properly shutting down your operating system it will corrupt the CMOS settings causing the CMOS Checksum Bad Error. You can easily avoid this error by making sure that you completely shut down your computer before turning off the power. Usually this entails going into the Start Menu/ Turn Off Computer/ Shut Down. If you received the error, shut down the computer properly, if this is the cause of the error, the error message will not return.
