I for got my password for my ipaq hx2490b.can someone help me.


When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there

also

The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased. Hope this helps

You may have interupted the procedure before it was complete.
Save your bios upgrade on cd or diskette.power down your pc and remove your battery for sometime.
Then boot your pc from the cd or diskette and begin the upgrade.
good luck.

What's the password for phoenix bios on nec versa e6500 notebook?


try the following; phoenix, PHOENIX, CMOS, BIOS
If that does not work you have two options.
1) remove all power and all batteries for about 15 minutes (there is a battery on the motherboard) and it should reset to blank. 2) if you can boot there are various bios hack programs to reset the bios but I would only do this as a last resort. I absolutely do not trust someone to hack the bios if I can avoid it.

Firmware update interupted, server out


If you have jumpered for BIOS recover it should be able to boot from floppy. I think you will have to install a floppy drive, boot from floppy. Jump the MB for BMC update (if ness) and flash the BIOS and BMC that way.

What is the bios password for an acer aspire 5100


It sounds to me like it was set by someone other than yourself. There is no legal way to reset the BIOS password. You can contact the person who set it, call Acer for service, or if you bought this from someone, return it.
If you set it, try to remember what it was.

No battery, power interupted while booting up. will not boot up


Unplug the power supply, remove the battery, locate and remove the BIOS battery (connected directly to the motherboard) for a few minutes and your BIOS will revert to default settings.

M2N-SLI Motherboard issue.


Hi

If your computer was ok before you changed parameters in Bios then it is Bios fault:
Re inter Bios and Try to reset it to default.
If you can not get into Bios anymore  the problem is serious:
You must reflash Bios or reset Cmos ,and it could be vga or may be the wifi if you have one onboard.
see if you have a hardware store nearby and let someone fix it
if you .
It seems to be a common problem on all Asus Motherboards:
bios,vga,post etc...

Password


that is because the password in question that you are trying to get past is the BIOS password most likely. Verify that your computer is turned off, remove power cord from back of computer, and find the jumper near the Bios chip on the motherboard. It will usually be close to the battery ( another option, temporarily remove the battery for about 30 seconds, then replace the battery into its proper position ). Be careful when you do this as some battery sockets are a pain to work with. Anyway in nearly all cases, the Bios reset jumper is located very close to both the battery and the bios chip ( firmware ). Removing the Bios reset jumper and positioning it one pin over from the initial position will usually reset the bios and get rid of the bios password requirement. Always put the bios reset jumper back into its initial position before re-appying power to the motherboard. Be careful not to leave anything loose lying around on the motherboard or in the case, else you might fry the motherboard..
Once you have successfully managed to get past the Bios password, then you should see the computer start to boot up normally and prior to Windows boot up and in the Bios routine you can configure the computer to boot to CD first. In many more modern situations, the motherboard is already configured that way.

Need boot load for emachine T2484


Hi, You need to enter your CMOS/BIOS setup and set your "First Boot Device". Immediately after powering up, press the "Del" key, display will show CMOS/BIOS settings. Verify that all your hard disks are being detected/recognized by your PC. Thereafter, set your First boot device to your new HD. Save and Exit. Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
