Question about HP Compaq dc5750 Small Form Factor - Free Flat Panel until 113007 EW318AV-KAM PC Desktop
no clue what happened (while i was away) but came home to "Enter Power-on password" (and an old fashioned looking key next to it). Enclosed in a blue box in middle of screen with black background.
during reboot, the normal F10, F12, etc come up, but will not allow me in to anything at all and just beeps.
have NEVER put a password on this computer (no one will admit, of course) and have 4 tries in the blue background box and total lock up.
I don't have the start up disks, but have my laptop to find answers and hopefully a simple fix???? just need the password gone and back to normal booting and then i can password correctly from little hands :)
if you are available tonight, please email me with any suggestions or ideas or fixes or ???? so muuuuchhhhhhhhhooo appreciated!
thanks so much for reading my rambling
If your using XP you need to run safe mode(press f8 while booting) then choose safe mode >2 box while show 1 with administrator and the 1 you mentioned>choose administrator>it will open your pc>go to control panel>users account>change or remove the user then restart...pls. rate

Sounds like somone has put What they call a bios/boot user password this is a password thatis used before windows even loads up.
If no one will tell you the password the only other way i know of to reset the password is to open the computer case and remove the CMOS battery which is a CM2032 button batter you cant miss it
Remove that battery and remove power to the case for a few minutes then replace the battery and power back on.
