    you aint going to belive this but when i was restaring my computer too boot it in DOS insted of putting in my user password in for BIOS an idea poped in my head the password can only be 6 letters long and in setting a password for BIOS use you have to use all six place values, so as a last ditch try scence i never set one for the supervisor and there are uswaly a default password on stuff like 000000 and like cell phone are last 4 digits of number so in BIOS i tryed just pushing space 6 times for the password becaue it would take up every place value and it worked and i could change the disk A: drive........DAMN just think how much trouble i would of saved if i would of thought of that like a couple months dang well just thought you should know in case you come across someone ealse with simalar problem.thinks for trying.

Thank you for sending to me the whole info, cause I didn't have it.

Your issue occurs because of a problem with the Plug and Play BIOS used by some computers.

At this point to resolve this issue, I suggest to look at HP website for an updated BIOS for your computer.

But You must to know that the BIOS can be write-protected. If that is the case (it is not usually necessary), before the BIOS can be updated, its write-protection has to be disabled by changing a jumper setting on the motherboard itself, or by changing a setting in the BIOS itself. If this needs to be done , the motherboard's user manual will provide the required information in the section devoted to the BIOS.

Get also the info of your motherboard computer (usually from the website manufacturer)
downloading the manual to check the settings.

I will try to find that data for you to help you out with this issue.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

    By the way, did you check inside your computer if your floppy drive is connected properly to your motherboard?

I have had ares ultra for several years and had my pc worked on and it lost it and dont know how to get it back forgot password

Lost Windows password:

  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode. XP only.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like
  • Free software option would be Hirens Boot CD. This one is command prompt only. Must follow instruction exactly.

Designer I - failing floppy drive

You can get the floppy drive replaced. I did tons of them! I don't think it is you. Sometimes you can "wiggle" the floppy a bit with the little flap door open and get it to read. Not a huge deal to replace.

My computer can not boot -BIOS ROM checksum error

to be honest if you have tried to re-flash your bios, and it did not work you still either have hte wrong version or the disc drive your using to flash it from is faulty. try another floppy drive/disc and try again. if that dont work. to be honest it's not worth getting it repaired just go out and spend £30-40 on a new mobo. sorry i'm not more helpfull but i dont believe it's worth spending that much time and effort on an old system like that with this kind of problem. good luck to you. let me know how you get on ok.
