Question about CTX Ez Book 700 Notebook

1 Answer

CTX EZbook 700 is missing...

I got a EZbook 700 for free and no system disks. I can't get into setup because it's password protected. It won't go into Safe Mode because a bunch of files are missing. Like kernal 386.EXE and more, I can get to the C:\ prompt but don't know how to do anything. I think I need to either get the disks somewhere? Wipe the whole thing? although I don't know how to? Bascially I have a very expensive door stop right now!! HELP

    Thanx for responding. Is this battery internal? i.e. do I have to open the thing up? There is what looks to be a removable item that sort of resembles a battery.

    So I have to get out the screw driver and hope I can find the battery? Without causing more problems?

    Okay I have it torn apart all the way down to the mother board and I don't see anything that resembles a battery, accept a small round silver thing (like a watch battery) but it is attached (sodered) to the board. Now what? Anyone else? feel free......

Ezbook lost password wont to wipe computer

Why wipe it? As long as the drive isn't encrypted you can just blank out the password. Download and burn Hiren Boot CD to a disc. Put it in this laptop and make sure boot to CD is first in your boot order in BIOS. Then follow the video.
