    i dont think you get it i want this off my computer. i think your talking about that part when your computer starts up that you see a screen and it says toshiba, song, or dell. well its something more of a password that is on my computer that doesn't need to be on my computer i have to type in the password before i can start up my computer or even get into it. and so i was wanting to get rid of it. its annoying and its almost like a spam thing.

Dear Augustbmc
Mr. Knotbeerdan knows exactly what he is talking about. Whe you start your computer that password is called the BIOS or CMOS password. If you want to clear it our completely then look on your mothernard and find the battery. It looks like a watch battery. Take it out and wait five minutes, then put it back in. This will clear your CMOS and you will not have the password any longer.
Don't forget to rate this solution with 4 stars.

You have to enter bios and change the password opion. This password you are talking about is a power on or a boot password. Its a good thing you know this password at least. If you didn't your computer would be next to worthless. to figure out how to enter bios check out my tips and tricks by clicking on the link below

    The password you see can be disabled if you go into bios you can turn the password off. At least i think that is the password you are talking about. The part that is throwing me is that you have to let it warm up then put in your real password.

Computer wont start


Hello,

You may try this; Turn OFF the laptop, remove the power sources (ac adapter and battery). Without power sources, hold power button 10 secs. Put back the power sources, and power ON the NB.

If same problem persist, boot from safe mode. Here's how;
  • Turn the computer on or Restart the computer
  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Boot Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected, not Repair Your Computer
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
  • When you are finished with troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would
If same problem persist, try reloading the Vista again.

Hope this works.

With the "CHANGE OIL SOON" message displayed, press any of the three DIC buttons to clear the "CHANGE OIL SOON" message. Display "OIL LIFE RESET" on the DIC. Press and hold the "ENTER" button for at least one second. An "ACKNOWLEDGED" display message will appear for three seconds or until the next button is pressed. This will tell you the system has been reset. Turn the ignition to "OFF". If the "CHANGE OIL SOON" message comes back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure. on the 3.5 liter you have a dipstick near fire wall
