Hello there,

What I would assume in your case is that the jack is not sensing that the keyboard(external) has been unplugged. You can check if the device is working properly in Hardware manager. Assuming you are using XP right-click on My computer->click properties-> hardware manager and check under keyboards. If there's any exclamatory mark next to it then it seems there's some kind of problem with it. Right-click on the device and click on uninstall. Since most of these workstation keyboards are Microsoft PS/2, windows should automatically find and install drivers for it. If it stil doesn't work then its likely to be a hardware failure. Contact HP immediately. Let me know if you need more help.

    On Vista you can access it through start->control panel->system and maintenance->system->device manager. Try it and post back if you need more help.

I have a problem is that I forgot in my lap top hp compaq nx7300 the password to quit the BIOS


The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, the computer will forget alot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password.
This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experienced working with laptop hardware.

Anyway, open up the computer case using a screw driver and locate the flat, circular and metallic CMOS battery. It should look something like this : http://pctechnotes.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/remove-battery.jpg

Some computers have this part standing upright. Once you have located it, observe how the latches are holding it.

Make sure to power down the computer, unplug the power cables and unplug any USB devices if they are powered. The computer must not be able to get power from anywhere for this to work. Take out the CMOS battery and wait 10 - 25 minutes before putting it back in.

Plug everything back in, power up the computer and enter the BIOS again. If everything went well there should be no more password. In some cases, if you get weird error messages during bootup now, you will need to goto "Load BIOS Defaults" in BIOS and save the changes to fix them.

My monitor has kicked into sleep mode and won't "wake up".


Unplug all the Cables from Compaq Presario 5103 CL and leave the Keyboard, mouse and monitor cable pluged in.

Now make sure the power cable of the monitor should be pluged in and the power cable of the tower should be pluged in.

Now to check if the montor is fine just unplug the video cable only which will show no input signal on the screen. If it shows this signal the monitor is fine. Plug back in the video cable.

If the monitor is going to sleep mode it might be possible that the old computer ( Compaq Presario 5103 CL ) is in stand by mode. hit any key on the keyboard and it should come back .

If it is not in the stand by mode then do one thing. Check the same monitor with the new computer. If it is working. Perfect ..!

Do one thing now ..!

Unplug all the cables from your old system and then press the power button for 30 sec and let it go. Now plug the keyboard, mouse and the monitor try again.
If it works Perfect. If not ..!

Then you need to open the tower and check on the processor FAN is it running..? If its not running you will not get the display as the fan is responsible for the display on the screen. Otherwise...!

Check the Tower possibly the Tower is not getting the power.

Try these steps and let me know If it works

I have an 320gig iomega external hard drive i can feel the drive running but the light is not comming on and it isnt registering on my lap top as been pluged in


You really need to provide more info. Basic Troubleshooting:

-Check all connections (Ethernet, Power, USB, etc)
-Install the appropriate driver for the device, usually included on a CD
-Double Check compatibility with your system (system requirements usually on packaging of product)
-If you haven't rebooted since you set it up, then reboot, this fixes a lot of things
-Try the product on another computer
-Try different cables/ports on the comptuer.

If nothing works, then send it in if it's under warranty or contact a professional service.

I have connected my microtek lcd monitor to my dell laptop computer. the monitor is plugged into electric outlet. the green light on the front of the monitor blinks. and i get a report of "no signal" but...


Have you tried pluging in the monitor in to the laptop before even starting the computer or Putting the computer in to "Stand by" then pluging in the monitor and then bringing the laptop out of "Stand by" or yet when you do have the computer on with the monitor pluged in, try "Fn" and a button hat has like two screens on it with a small bar in between them? All these should work.
