Question about Compaq Evo D500 PC Desktop
I have a compaq evo d320, the previous owner had set a password on the BIOS/utility set up, I can login into it by just pushing enter 3 times on at password stage then utility loads, but I can't change anything in it, as if I'm locked out of changing any thing.
I tried a method of removing battery, it did kinda look like it had reset but then password page came up again upon entering utilties, plus it also said that the CMOS was invalid.
What else can I do to resolve this issue and thanks in advance.
Ok, this time try to reset the bios using the jumper (small bit of coloured plastic near the battery) move the position of the jumper and hit the on/off button, the computer should not start if you have done this right, move the jumper back to its position and start the pc, go straight back into the bios and set the date and time, hit F10 and ok or yes and you should have full control of the bios.
if there is no jumper, remove the battery again for 10 mins and make sure the power cord is removed from the back, hit the on/off button a few times to drain any residual power, after 10 mins replace the battery and do what i told you to with the bios
