Sounds like somebody installed a hard drive password, and there is no way to get around it but to replace the hard drive and start over.

When i turn my d257 acer aspire one on it goes to blue screen asking for a password, or it either goes to a screen that says no boot disk


No Boot disk found - usually indicates the HDD is not located.
so you need to validate the HDD is inserted properly, and locked into the HDD slot. securely,
Blue Screen asking for password, could mean several things,
basically you need with both errors, take to a good Repair Tech and have this looked into... PASSWORD can be either for BIOs or HDD,
or the system went into LOCKED MODE and password is needed to UNLOCK it.

I have lenovo T 500 but when i press the button power i will not start asking me to type the password but i forgot it i ask help


What color is the screen when you are being asked for the password? If it is black and white then do not enter any password just wait 30 seconds and allow it to boot into the operating system. If it is a windows "login" page; without actually being at your computer it is almost impossible to break the login access. If this is the case you may need to reformat or bring it to Business depot and have them use a password unlock-er (Not a password breaker, that's for hacking) for your operating system.

When I turn on my Laptop the Dell Inspirer E1505 it says A Disk Read error occured Press Ctrl + Alt + Dell to restart then i restarted the computer i pressed F2 and the BIOS setting came up i went to...


It's asking you for a password to access the BIOS. You or someone entered a password to access the BOIS (setup screen). The original problem you're having is "Disk Read Error". If you have the CD's that came with your laptop, look for a Resource CD or any that has "Utilities and Diagnostics" under "Contents". This is a CD that you can boot from. Insert the CD and select <F12> on power on. Select boot from CD/DVD disk. If the laptop boots then your laptop is working but your hard disk drive or OS (Operating system software) is the problem.

Eee Pc Problems with password but not with boot password


Firstly windows has an account called "administrator" which doesn't normally show up on the welcome screen but you can get to it either by booting in safe mode (it does show up on the welcome screen when in safe mode) or by pressing ctrl+alt+del at the welcome screen to get an old fassioned login dialog. Often this account will have no password on it.

If the administrator account is locked out or has a password on it then there is a third party password reset and account unlocking tool available from http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com

Are you refering to the BIOS possword? If so, you can try and reset the jumper for CMOS on the motherboard of you machine. It should next to the CMOS Battery.

Administrator password help/ password boot cd


Hello pink,

In order for your PC to read your CD on boot, you don't have to enter your BIOS settings. When you start your computer, press the F12 button repeatedly (like F12-F12-F12-F12), and your pc will ask you which boot device you would like to use.

It will show you a screen like this:

Just select your CDROM in the list, and hit enter. this will read your bootable CD.

I hope this helps.
Jerry.

I'm not clear on your description, so here goes:

If it showed the Toshiba start screen, then asked for a password, then your hard drive is password protected.

If it showed the Toshiba screen, then asked for password, and you entered it, and then it goes "insert disk", then your hard drive is passworded and wiped.

If the first thing it does is ask for a password, then the password is in the BIOS.
