I cannot get passed the front page

Turn the power on and immediately start pressing the F10 key onyour keyboard. This should open the BIOS setup screen. Look for a tab or page called Security. Look for an option there to cancel the password. Or, on the Exit page in the BIOS select Restore Defasult settings or possibly Restore Safe settings. Then click Save and Exit. The computer will restart, hopefully without needing a password.
If that fails you can always use a Windows install disc to reinstall a fresh copy of Windows. Or, use a Windows repair disk to "Refresh" Windows.

How to reset to factory settings for e machine T2878

Use an external memory device such as a DVD, flash drive or external hard drive to back up the data you need to save from your eMachines computer. Any data that isn't saved to an external source will be erased when the computer is restored to factory settings. Remove any discs that are in the optical drive and unplug the computer's peripheral devices, such as an Ethernet cable or scanner. Do not disconnect the keyboard, mouse or monitor. Click the Windows "Start" menu and choose "All Programs." Navigate to "eMachines" and choose "eMachines Recovery Management." Click the "Restore" tab. Click "Password Settings" if you have not already set a recovery password. Type a new password in the text box and click "OK." Click "Restore System to Factory Default." Type the recovery password and click "OK." Click "Next" to wipe the eMachines computer's hard drive and begin the recovery process. Select "Finish" and wait for the eMachines computer to restart. Use the series of installation prompts that appear on the screen to create a new user account for your operating system, set the system date and time, and set up your Internet settings.

Laptop wont start

This issue is often caused by either an incorrect setting in CMOS Setup or a bad boot device, such as a bad hard disk drive.

  1. Verify your boot options are properly set in CMOS setup. I recommend having the CD or disc drive as your first boot device and then hard drive as the second boot device.
  2. If your CMOS Setup has an option to boot from the LAN disable this option.
  3. If you have changed any CMOS settings, make sure to save and reboot the computer.

If this does not resolve the issue, try resetting the CMOS values to the default settings, save and exit.
If this fixes the problem but it reoccurs again later you main need a new cmos battery. Or keep your battery always slightly charged.

    We can not help you break passwords on computers. This is illegal for us to do in case the machine is stolen. The password prompt you are getting was most likely set by HP and you will have to call them for it.
