As far as you described, someone may have put a password on the CMOS chip so every time you turn on your computer, it will ask you for it.

If you want to clear it, you can try by opening the case of the computer and clear the CMOS values by shorting the Clear CMOS pins. If you cannot locate it then you can unplug the computer and take out the button battery on the motherboard and wait for a few minutes before putting it back in.

If its a laptop then you'll probably have to take it hack to the retailer and get it cleared by manufacturer.

I can't get passed the main screen when I turn my lenovo desktop all in one on. It goes to the screen that has a 75max so easy so simple how do I get passed it


Hi

Sounds like your boot up files are corrupt so it cant read any further then the screen.

you need the windows start up disc to match the windows installed on your laptop/pc

load it and when it asks you to install or repair select repair and follow the prompts to reinstatement the boot up files or master boot record MBR

My acer laptop screen goes black after i pass the log in screen


What you can try to do is hit "Ctrl" + "Alt" + "Delete" which should open task manager once you've reached the black screen. Click "File" from the menu bar and then "New Process". Type "explorer" in the box, and, Voila!, you should be able to see things again.

Sadly, this is indicative of a virus or corruption of the operating system. I'd recommend backing up all your stuff and then tapping "F8" while you're computer is turning on, hitting "Enter" on "Repair my Computer", clicking through the dialog box, and then select the "Acer Recovery" option. This will wipe everything back to factory defaults.

Black enter password screen, but no password


I'm not sure if this will work but it may be that your system bios is asking for a password. If so, as you reboot the system, press F8 down until the system bios screen appears. Then page thru to see if the bios is asking for a system password. If so, you should be able to deactivate it thru the bios.

Hope this works.

You might want to print this out:

1) Turn off your laptop.

2) Press the "on" button on your laptop, and *immediately* start tapping on the F8 key on your keyboard. This should bring up a black screen with white text on it.

NOTE: You may get a message saying "keyboard error, press F1 to continue." If this happens, press F1 and then keep tapping on the F8 key.

NOTE: If the Windows screen comes up, turn off the computer and try again until you get to a black screen with different startup choices on it.

3) Once you have reached the startup choices screen, use the arrow keys on your keyboard to highlight "safe mode." Press the Enter key. If you are asked to choose your operating system, just press Enter again.

This will start a lot of text scrolling on your screen. Just be patient. When it stops, you will see a login screen. Log in under your name (sometimes this is "owner").

4) You will now be logged in to you computer in Safe Mode. A message will pop up asking if you want to use Safe Mode or System Restore. Click on System Restore.

5) You should now have the option to undo your last System Restore. Choose this option and follow the instructions on your screen to get back to where you were before you tried to restore your laptop.

If you need further help after that, please reply with the name and model number of your laptop. For example, "Dell Inspiron 530," or "Compaq Presario 3000." Also let me know what version of Windows you are using, for example "XP" or "Vista."

Had the same thing happen to me a month or two ago, Battery recharge is taking up all the current flow for a period of time. Leave it alone for about 30 minutes to recharge, then you should be able to operate the laptop again, but will have to remain hooked to outlet power until battery is fully recharged.

Hi
If it's plugged in a light should come on to show that it's charging. Next you need to press the on button on the laptop and it should then turn on.

If it makes a sound when you turn it on (i.e. starts humming) but the screen stays black then it may be that the screen is switched off.

I think the best thing may be for you to refer to this guide as it will help you get started with the laptop but if you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask!

Hope this is helpful
