Try starting your PC in Safe Mode.

To get into the Windows 2000 / XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.

Safe mode takes a while to load but once it is loaded, I think you can use control panel to get to "add/remove programs" - then hopefully you can uninstall "screen on password"

Need to reset bios password on Daytona-a rev 3.3 mboard


Enter the BIOS at power on, rather than booting windows, and go through the settings. Put in your old password and enter a new one as prompted on the screen.
If you bought this used, and there is a password from a previous owner, you can go to the system board and remove the small jumper that maintains the password lock for the BIOS. This should allow you access to the BIOS if you're locked out by a previous owner's password.

I want to restore my compaq presario SR 1050NX to factory but it is asking for administrator password and I didn't put one on


Try admin or just hit enter. If not remove the battery from the mother board for 5 minutes and see whether it helps. If you haven't entered a password on BIOS there shouldn't be any problem. Also try deleting if you have any other users accounts on the system.

Good Luck!

Now the BIOS is asking for the password that you put when you say you resetted.

Please enter the password that you put in the BIOS and let me know if you are going to get a different screen other then the blue square with the picture of a key.

Compaq screen comes up with "password" and a picture of a lock..cannot sign on


Hi kdunder,

This sounds like the boot password your talking about. The lock is showing up after 3 incorrect tries.

You can go into the BIOS and reset the Boot password - of course you'll need administrator rights.

Hope this helps and good luck.
