Question about Packard Bell Easy One Silver 2120 Notebook

Packard Bell Easynote MZ36 24 uk

Computer appears locked up by previous owner, the seller. At startup I have a press F2 or F12 to enter multiboot. I do neither and it prompts for a password. I assume this is set by owner but have different explanations. I intend to open her up and remove CMOS battery. If all else fails I resell on eBay and cut my losses. Packard Bell do not respond to help. I am desktop savvy but laptops are not my game. Opening it seems to be a hurlde to cross. Help very much appreciated.

Regards

Andrew

    Hello, thanks for your info. I had searched and tried master passwords but this password is not a BIOS and I am prompted for it before things load. It is obvioulsy owner created to prevent theft etc and I have heard that the only way to remove it is to physically remove the chips. Mention has been made that the password is in the EEprom and so removal of the CMOS will not do. As it happens I am unable to locate the CMOS battery having removed the plastics. Obviously I would like to try that if I could locate it.

    Thanks for the help.

You could search the internet for Bios Master passwords. Other than that, just pull the ac power, main battery and cmos battery and let the system drain.

If its a Windows password, then respond back for more instructions.

    Try the password: PHOENIX

    It could be some brand of hard drive encryption software like SafeGuard by Utimaco.

    Any description on the login prompt?

Just removing the battery briefly may not reset CMOS. Look for jumpers near the battery clip and if there are some, remove the battery, short any jumpers nearby. Failing jumpers, I would suggest leaving it without battery for at least a day; some are using 'supercapacitors' and a battery.
Opening a laptop case can be daunting; be advised that after you have removed any screws from the under- & back-side, the mating plastic parts may still have molded parts that will need to be popped apart. If the slits between the mating parts will accommodate it, an old credit card will sometimes avoid damage to the plastic, otherwise a putty (or spackle) knife will work. 
Make sure you are not carrying any static charge before poking around inside; it can be a killer. Touch any exposed sheet metal or a heatsink to equalize any charge.

Packard Bell Easynote M5255 - Will not boot up


option f2, go into bios setup and see if the hard drive is listed or detected. Auto detect hard drive save and exit. System will reboot if the same error occurs then the hard drive master boot record is probably corrupt or the hard drive has totally failed.
