It's probably under the keyboard.

Try tapping the F12 key during boot. That should bring up a menu of bootable devices. Select the floppy drive.
You can also change the boot order in the BIOS.

Make *absolutely sure* you are plugged in when you flash the BIOS!

Adding computer memory


The only thing you could do is put in a 256MB module in the slot that you have access to. Only one socket is user upgradable. The second socket is only upgradable by a Dell service center. They would have to install a second 256 module to get you to the 512MB max.

My HP Pavilion zt1170 fails to boot 90% of the time. Once power was turned on, I could hear the fan run for one second and stopped. No video, yet the LED was on. It seems like it froze. Occasionally, it...


I also have a ZT 1170 and it began to do the same thing. It was a bad solder joint in the RAM slot connector in the bottom of the laptop. It would intermittently cause the laptop to hang on bootup, or to randomly lockup.
This laptop has two slots for RAM. One is underneath the laptop behind a small access door, and the other is under the keyboard and requires removal of the keyboard to access it.
To find out if your laptop problem is due to the same issue, open the bottom access panel and remove the bottom RAM memory card. Try booting it up. It should still be able to run, although more slowly due to having less RAM. If it starts up, you are closer to isolating the problem.

In my case, I initially thought I had a defective RAM card, so I purchased another 256Mbyte card for the laptop (mine came with two 256Mb cards), but the new card had the same problem. Then I discovered that pressing down on the RAM card would momentarily fix the problem, which clued me in on it being a bad connection. It seems that heat under the laptop causes some of the solder connections between the memory slot connector and the main PC board to develop hairline cracks. I was able to find the cracked joint and resolder it, but you almost need a microscope to do it. Depending on how much installed memory you need, you could simply leave the one slot empty, and buy a larger RAM card to stick into the other slot (under the keyboard). This laptop can accept a maximum of 512Mbyte card in each slot, for a total of 1024Mbytes.

Omnibook 4150 password


One Time, I forgot BIOS PASSWORD OMNIBOOK 4150XE2.
I had to find a way to clear the CMOS on my own.
(1) Remove the memory access panel.
(2) Remove the sticks of memory.
(3) I believe it is the top stick, but it may be the bottom. There are two solder points that stand out.
(4) With a small screwdriver or other tool, short these two contacts.
(5) Replace the memory and put the access panel back on.

Your CMOS should now be cleared. I have only done this on an XE2, but chances are there are similar ways on other HP laptops.

Make much attention... it can be dangerous.
If you want, try this solution, BUT YOUR RESPONSABILITY.

or
H.P. will provide a solution FREE OF CHARGE even though the laptop is out of warranty.....unbelievable I know !!!!

You have to try and give proof of purchase, very important, then a code is given which you enter in the bios. Then you contact H.P. with the resultant code and then your bios password will be unlocked........

Most likely a ram problem. Sometimes reseating the memory will fix the problem.

Remove and reseat the RAM On most notebook PCs, removing and reinserting the memory is a simple step and does not require advanced technical knowledge of the computer. HP recommends reseating the memory module before arranging for warranty service repair. If you are not confident following the steps for removing and replacing the memory module in this document, contact an HP support specialist for assistance.
NOTE: If someone other than HP installs or upgrades the RAM, any damage caused by the RAM and/or by the person when trying to install or upgrade the RAM is excluded from coverage under the product warranty. The customer assumes all risk and liability for damages for any such installation or upgrade.Some HP notebooks may have a secondary memory module located under the keyboard. For removal and replacement instructions pertaining to the second memory module contact an HP support specialist for assistance. WARNING: This product contains components that are easily damaged by Electrostatic Discharge (ESD). To reduce the chance of ESD damage, work over a non-carpeted floor, set the notebook on a grounded surface that dissipates any static charge, and wear an ESD wrist strap that is connected to a grounded surface, like the metal frame of a PC. Use the following steps to remove and replace the memory modules. These steps should be repeated for each memory module installed in your notebook. Step 1 - Remove the battery
  1. Slide and hold the battery release latch to the unlock position.
  2. Use your finger to lift the battery up and out.
Step 2 - Remove the memory module
  1. Locate the memory module cover on the bottom of the notebook.
  2. Remove the screw that covers the memory module.
  3. Use your finger or a flat head screw driver to lift the inside edge of the memory module and remove it.
    NOTE: When handling a memory board, use care to prevent touching the memory chips on the board. Touching the memory chips could damage or destroy the memory.
  4. Push both tabs outward simultaneously to release the memory module.
  5. Grasp the memory module by the edges and pull gently to remove it.
  6. After removing one module, replace the memory expansion cover and then replace the screw.
Step 3 - Reseat the memory module
  1. Locate the memory module cover on the bottom of the notebook.
  2. Remove the screw that covers the memory module.
  3. Locate the alignment slot on the memory module and align it to the empty board receptacle.
  4. Grasp the memory module by the edge and push gently to install it.
    NOTE: When handling a memory board, use care to prevent touching the memory chips on the board. Touching the memory chips could damage or destroy the memory.
  5. Press the expansion memory board down to latch the tabs.
  6. After replacing the module, replace the memory expansion cover and then replace the screw.
After the memory is reseated, connect the AC adapter and turn on the notebook.
