If your device is asking for a bios password then that means that someone has previously entered a bios password for the device. You need to access the cmos battery.....disconnect it.....then reconnect it...this will allow the password to leave the bios memory....DO ALL THIS WITH THE DEVICE OFF...

Panasonic cf-74 toughbook cannot load win xp proff. i can load win 7 from usb drive, i can load win vista from cd disk. hdd shows up in bios, when trying to load win xp loads fine until says starting...


It sounds to me like you requre Win'XP Service Pack 3.
If you are using Service Pack 2 or earlier, there is no
SATA support which is why the HDD is not recognized.

Get Service Pack 3 and your problems will be solved.

Good Luck

Service stop work, i cant unlock my lap top


Remove the plastic piece above the keyboard.
Unscrew the 2 screws on the keyboard and lift it up gently. You don't need to disconnect it.
Now unscrew and remove the modem card in the center.
On the system board you will find 2 solder points c88. Short those 2 points out while you press the power button on, which will reset the bios password.

I star my laptop and the problem is just star on black screen withe a blue window asking for the bios password what can i do to solve this thanks


1.You either know the BIOS password or you don't . this will require a tech to reset the password entry to default so that you can access the laptop. this is done at the mother board level usually
2. Contact the manufacturer and speak with tech support to walk you through a password reset for the BIOS.

You can download BIOS updates and any/all the Windows XP

Displays no hard drive found wen installing win xp


You have to go to BIOS setup, find HDD setup, and change the value to the other one (there are only two possibilities). That will fix your problem. The problem is caused by the fact that the lap top was designed for vista, not XP. and the lap top contains SATA HDD. when installing XP pre-installation doesn't have SATA drivers, so your OS can not see the HDD. Change it in BIOS, and you trouble is gone

At start no operating system found


By your description either the drive has died or somehow the BIOS has been changed to not be able to see the drive. Can you run setup on startup to get into the BIOS? From there you should be able to see if the BIOS is detecting the drive. Mose BIOS setups have a selection to automatically detect the drive. I would try that.
