Try to press F8 in begining after BIOS start and start your windows in safe mode. then look if you got an extra administrator account without password to login. If you dont have it you need a program to remove your password. get back to me if the first option doesent help. also little more information should be helpfull. what OS does you use? xp or vista `?

Hi, What I would best sugget you if you this kind of issue is to restore your system to its original settings, just look for the small button just beside the power button on your keyboard, it has an arching arrow logo, that key is what we called One Key Recovery that would restore your system to its original factory settings. but just a hint it would also delete everything on your computer so consider bucking up every important files taht you have before proceeding with the recovery. also make sure that the ac adapter is plugin before you press the one key recovery button then it will give the options to choose from, just choose one key recovey then proceed with the factory default recovery, thats it it would now proceed with the system factory default restoration. If you still need some clarifications regarding this issue you could also call the tech support hotline of lenovo

SOURCE: Hi... I have a HP ProBook
First of all if Dell says to rename the file then do so, if no then don't change the file extension, leave the file intact.
If you are wanting to boot from a USB drive then you have to make the USB drive bootable. There are plenty of websites out there which will show you how to make a USB drive bootable. All you have to do once the drive is bootable is copy the BIOS update the drive, pop it in the USB port and set the computer to boot from the USB drive. It will then load the BIOS update and ask you if you would like to proceed with the update.
If you cannot set the computer to boot from the USB drive then try and clear the CMOS or set the BIOS to default settings, then try again.
If that does not work then you may have to get a floppy drive and use that to update the BIOS.
If you carry on running into problems please post back with as much information as possible so we can try and troubleshoot what is going on as even if you may have bricked the machine there is a good chance you can flash the BIOS to recover it.
