I removed the keyboard, unplugged the bios battery, holded down the power button about 30 secs, plugged back the bios battery, assembled the computer, didn't plug the battery and instead of that just plugged the ac adaptor and the bios passwd was gone =)

Only 2 ways to reset (clear) bios. 1 - is to unplug cmos battery located under keyboard and wait at least 3 days (10 days is recommended) before putting battery back in or AC power.If password is still there then repeat and wait longer. or option
2 - remove motherboard, locate bios chip on the back (upper left hand corner) , just below the bios chip there is a capacitor (NEK jE8) use a volt meter to discharge capacitor. Use the lowest setting like 2.5v, connect ground test lead to ground and hold positive lead to the + side of capacitor. Continue to hold untill you have zero voltage, once you have a zero reading, locate the fuse (M15) , on same side of motherboard, just under the docking station, use same process until discharged, Flip motherboard over and locate capacitor just to the left of the cpu, Use same process until zero, flip back over and return to the capacitor next to the bios chip and test, if zero your good to go, if you still have voltage repeat process until zero reading on both capacitor and fuse. Remember all this is to be done with No power from AC, Battery, and CMOS. Discharge process should take about 20 minutes. Tested and proven 100% and much faster than 3 to 10 days. Remember this will void your warranty. Good Luck

I've tried the way which is written in the post and i found small thing which solved the problem in 10 minutes.
As is written above is totally right, BUT what you should make is:
No need to wait 3-10 days, it's only 10 minutes, but when u put back the CMOS battery, DON'T PLUG THE LAPTOP'S BATTERY, JUST THE POWER CORD, and try it then

Good luck ;)

There is a bios setting with extra strict security which I unintelligibly enabled with a password so long and impossible to remember that I of course didn't. Apparently, if this setting is enabled you can't clear CMOS. According to HP the procedure (if you don't have that security setting enabled) is to remove power battery, the AC and disconnect the CMOS battery for 30 min (make it an hour to be on safe side), then only plug the AC. This will achieve the same as voltmeter trick the guy used above. I'm going to leave it unplugged overnight. If still it prompts me for the password, then I try flashing the bios.

    You know it cracks me up when I hear about people using complicated passwords like they're protecting the launch codes to nuclear missles. Just use a simple 4 digit password, nobody will try to figure it out.

I have a HP Compaq 6910p with blue lines down screen ? can you help ? Please ; )


Hello there
I had this issue too with a Vaio i had. This means that there is a faulty connection between the ribbonconnecting your LCD monitor to the motherboard. Now, you can attempt to disassemble the PC and check the connection, but this would void your warranty and if you havent done something like this before, then i dont recommend it. What you should do is take it into your local service location to get this fixed.
I hope this helps. Thumbs up always appreciated.

The computer compaq 615 has no screen display when started . the fans works and after some seconds the caplock begins to blink.


Laptops generally have a blue "VGA" connector on the back. Try plugging in an external monitor if you can find one.

If you see nothing on the external screen at first there is likely a FN key and a Toggle key to swap the video inputs.

To identify you will see the FN key has a color (typically blue or yellow) , and there will be colored icons on some keys the same color as the FN key. Hold down the FN key and press the key that looks like it has a "monitor" icon in the FN key color. (blue or yellow) This should attempt to swap the input to the VGA input. If the external monitor.

If you see the display on the external monitor, you may have a problem with the laptop screen, or the connector may need to be re-seated. Generally if you remove some screws and lift up the keyboard, and remove the bezel from around the screen, you can typically see where the laptop screen plugs into the motherboard. Do not attempt this if you are not comfortable taking the laptop apart and putting it back the way you found it.

If reseating the laptop screen does not work, and you get no display on an external monitor, you likely have a problem with the video card in the laptop. Since the video card is built into the motherboard usually, this is a problem that will probably cost more to fix than the laptop is worth.

But, if you have a hardware issue with the laptop always check if there has been a recall or if it was under warranty, because if so they may fix for free.

Its too risky for a user to open the laptop, access the mainboard and reset to its factory setting..

Very dangerous for the hardware too..

My suggestion is to bring your laptop to a credible technician to open your laptop, reset the cmos to its factory, and return the cover properly..


Hope you understand.

Much appreciated if you rate this help.. thanks

Power-on password --Computer locked up solid and I do not know how to reverse the option..


So this is because you must have set the password while under a user. Unfortunatly there is not much you can do for this, unless you have also set up to have a 'guest' user. This shouldn't require a password to get in. Otherwisee, contact HP and they should be able to talk you through the step sof bypassig the power=-up password lock.
