    Hi Joseph, and welcome to FixYa,



    Your Compaq nx6120 can bee set to a power on password, if you do not know this password, you do not come anywhere unless you brack this.

    Is that what you want to do?



    If you give the right password, the pc will cary on booting in to Windows. ctrl-alt-del only give you the window security window.



    Please clarify

If it really is a power on password you can remove it by following these steps.
1) Unplug your laptop.
2) Remove all batteries.
3) Then you must open your laptop and locate the cmos battery and unplug it for about 3-5 seconds.
4) Then put it back together and power it on.

Ctrl + Alt+Del


Hi

is it a usb keyboard or a ps2(round connector) keyboard? the problem is most likely that due to the computer not having started up properly the keyboard is not properly configured / installed by windows.

to get rid of this problem, you need the old type of keyboard, turn off the computer, and plug in a keyboard to the ps2 connector.

green one is for the mouse, the other is for the keyboard, plug in a keyboard, then turn the computer on, you should be able to press CTRL+ALT +DEL now and ones you sign in to the computer it should install the usb keyboard and it should work from now on, just make sure the keyboard is not disconnected or port changed when the power is off from the computer that cause the configuration loss.
