Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook
This is an HP dv8000. When my husband boots up and tries to enter his hard drive password, it's entering two spaces at a time (double spacing). We have rebooted, unplugged cables, etc. Can anyone help please?
Thanks for answering my request to post your findings back here.
For future reference, there is normally a jumper set close to the CMOS backup battery comprised of three pins. If so equipped, two of the three pins will have a jumper on them with the third empty. Resetting the CMOS memory is accomplished by switching that jumper temporarily to the other two, that would be center pin and the normally free one, this takes the battery out of circuit without physically removing it and shorts the CMOS voltage pin to ground to drain off any existing charge and resetting it.
Happy New Year for your family!
