How to go yo bios in compaq nr4000



The BIOS information is typically found at or near the top of the POST screen for a very short time


ALR PC non / PCI = CTRL+ALT+ESC


AMD advanced micro devices=BIOS = DEL


Award BIOS = DEL


Dtk Datatech Enterprises Co. BIOS = ESC


Phoenix BIOS = CTRL+ALT+S


Phoenix BIOS = CTRL+ALT+INS


Restart your computer
during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key usually Delete or F2 to enter setup
this will differ depending on which bios you have


Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS
if you have changed any of the BIOS settings by mistake

you can load failsafe or optimised defaults using the arrow keys you can after you make any changes in BIOS press Esc then press the F10 button save to cmos to restart

CMOS is an on-board semiconductor chip powered by a CMOS battery inside computers that stores information such as the system time and date and the system hardware settings for your computer..

hope this helps

Computer POST and beep codes
The computer power on self test (POST) will test your computer to make sure it can boot properly(test hardware and sys requirements), once it does the computer will then finish the boot process. Normally, if your computer passes the POST test it will beep once or possibly twice. If the computer fails the POST then it will either not beep at all or generate a beep code.

The beep code you receive can indicate what may be wrong with your computer. The beep codes vary depending on your motherboard BIOS manufacturer(AMI, Award, Phoenix). You can find what BIOS you are using by paying attention to the BIOS screen when your computer boots up. It should tell you what brand BIOS.

You can usually find the meaning of your beep code by doing a simple google search i.e "phoenix beep codes". Below, I have provided links to sites which go over beep codes and their respective meaning.

AMI BIOS Beep Codes
Award BIOS Beep Codes
Phoenix BIOS Beep Codes

Forgot BIOS password for Acer Extensa 5420. need heeeeeeeeeelp


Every system must store the BIOS password information somewhere. If you are able to access the machine after it has been booted successfully, you may be able to view the BIOS password. You must know the memory address where the BIOS password is stored, and the format in which the BIOS password is stored. Or, you must have a program that knows these things.

You can write your own program to read the BIOS password from the CMOS memory on a PC by writing the address of the byte of CMOS memory that you wish to read in port 0×370, and then reading the contents of port 0×371.

!BIOS will recover the BIOS password for most common BIOS versions, including IBM, American Megatrends Inc, Award and Phoenix.

CmosPwd will recover the BIOS password for the following BIOS versions:

  • ACER/IBM BIOS
  • AMI BIOS
  • AMI WinBIOS 2.5
  • Award 4.5x/4.6x/6.0
  • Compaq (1992)
  • Compaq (New version)
  • IBM (PS/2, Activa, Thinkpad)
  • Packard Bell
  • Phoenix 1.00.09.AC0 (1994), a486 1.03, 1.04, 1.10 A03, 4.05 rev 1.02.943, 4.06 rev 1.13.1107
  • Phoenix 4 release 6 (User)
  • Gateway Solo - Phoenix 4.0 release 6
  • Toshiba
  • Zenith AMI

I bought a laptop at a yardsale and it has a bio lock how do i unlock it?


The solution will offer many approaches to resolving a BIOSpassword you need removed.

1. Using a Backdoor BIOS password
Some BIOS manufacturers implement a backdoor password. The backdoor password isa BIOS password that works regardless of what any other user has set as a BIOSpassword. Although manufacturers change these passwords with newerreleases of hardware, it's worth trying these passwords first before employingmore time-intensive methods.

AMI:Reported AMI backdoor BIOS passwords include A.M.I., AAAMMMIII, AMI?SW ,AMI_SW, BIOS, CONDO, HEWITT RAND, LKWPETER, MI, and PASSWORD.

AWARD:
One reported Award backdoor BIOS password is eight spaces. Other reported Awardbackdoor BIOS passwords include 01322222, 589589, 589721, 595595, 598598 ,ALFAROME, ALLY, ALLy, aLLY, aLLy, aPAf, award, AWARD PW, AWARD SW, AWARD?SW,AWARD_PW, AWARD_SW, AWKWARD, awkward, BIOSTAR, CONCAT, CONDO, Condo, condo,d8on, djonet, HLT, J256, J262, j262, j322, j332, J64, KDD, LKWPETER, Lkwpeter,PINT, pint, SER, SKY_FOX, SYXZ, syxz, TTPTHA, ZAAAADA, ZAAADA, ZBAAACA, andZJAAADC.

Phoenix:Reported Phoenix BIOS backdoor passwords include BIOS, CMOS, phoenix, andPHOENIX.

Other Manufacturers: VOBIS & IBM - merlin Dell - Dell Biostar - Biostar Compaq - Compaq Enox - xo11nE Epox - central Freetech - Posterie IWill - iwill Jetway - spooml Packard Bell - bell9 QDI - QDI Siemens - SKY_FOX SOYO - SY_MB TMC - BIGO Toshiba - Toshiba 2.Using Software to Reset BIOS Password Thereare two programs that can be used to reset the BIOS password: !BIOS andCmosPwd. !BIOSwill recover the BIOS password for most common BIOS versions, including IBM,American Megatrends Inc, Award and Phoenix. You can download it here.Click on Download DOS executable. CmosPwd will recover the BIOS password for the following BIOSversions:
  • ACER/IBM BIOS
  • AMI BIOS
  • AMI WinBIOS 2.5
  • Award 4.5x/4.6x/6.0
  • Compaq (1992)
  • Compaq (New version)
  • IBM (PS/2, Activa, Thinkpad)
  • Packard Bell
  • Phoenix 1.00.09.AC0 (1994), a486 1.03, 1.04, 1.10 A03, 4.05 rev 1.02.943, 4.06 rev 1.13.1107
  • Phoenix 4 release 6 (User)
  • Gateway Solo - Phoenix 4.0 release 6
  • Toshiba
  • Zenith AMI
You can download CmosPwd here. Scroll down andlook for Cmos password recoverytools 5.0 (October 2007) and click the zip that contains a hyperlink.

In order to use these two programs you will need toboot into DOS from a Windows 98 disk or create a DOS boot disk that you can burnto CD or copy to a flash drive. If you don't know how to do this, thenpost back and I can post further instructions.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

BIOS hangs at HP logo, can't access bios or boot settings


sounds like you lost your BIOS, you may need to find a way to get the BIOS on a bootable disc, then re flash you BIOS. the only problem is you need to know the maker of your BIOS, i have an IBM and Phoenix Technologies made my BIOS, i just downloaded a new version from the IBM website and reflashed mine, but if you get the wrong version you can destroy your motherboard.
