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.

After bios update on sony vaio vgn-fe21b the laptop will not on.


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.

Hi, I have NEC Versa E6300 laptop. I had set its BIOS password long back but forgot now. I want it to boot from CD and need to change the option in BIOS. Can you please suggest, how can I reset this...


Hi Prajeet
To reset your BIOS password you need to call the NEC to give you a reset code. Most Computer manufacturers like DELL, HP do have password reset tool from their end. you just need to call them to ask for a reset code but expect to answer all security questions before they gave you the reset code.

I have an 2008 HP laptop that boots but does not have any output to the screen.Since I'm not able to check the bios by interupting the boot cycle,I thought perhaps I could perform a hardware reset on...


With the HP series of laptops, I doubt that resetting the bios chip would have any effect and you would not be able to see what is happening, what you describe ( a bios flash) is not the easiest solution.

Try it on an external monitor, if the problem persists, then you have the usual failed Nvidia graphics chip problem, all too common with HP laptops as they overheat and need to be "reballed"

If you can get an external picture, issue is likely to be with the inverter, the screen, or maybe just a loose cable or in extreme circumstances, a damaged vga cable

I have a sony pcg-grt360 laptop, and I need to install XP from external cd-rom - I can not get into the bios to make the changes to select boot sequence - I need to remove the existing password


Unfortunately this laptop uses the restrictive style of BIOS password. Meaning if you can remove the cmos battery there is a good chance it will not forget the password.

Unfortunately the only way to truly clear it is to replace the whole motherboard which is a nightmare, especially with an older machine like this.

Are you sure there is no way you can get the BIOS password / remember it? I assume that is what is going on, correct?

Please let me know, just reply to my answer here...

Thanks

How to reset bios password


You will have to pull the CMOS battery which is a small button sized battery on the motherboard, it powers the BIOS. Then just put it back in.:-)

Will not boot ... q50. battery light flicker 3 times


This happened to me. In order to fix it, unplug the power source and take out the battery. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Then plug back in the power source and the battery and power up the laptop.

This is called resetting the power cycle and should fix it.

My inspiron e1505 has the numbers lock light lit all the time and the caps lock and the lighting bolt next to it flashes for a while and nothing happens. Then the computer shuts down. Help please


Hi,
Try taking out the battery and booting it on AC power only, if the laptop boots let it boot up then shut it down and reinsert the battery and try boot again. If it doesn't boot up then there is a problem with the battery.

If it doesn't boot up at all post back.


Good luck.

Cannot Boot


Removing the cmos battery isn't always enough to reset the bios you may need to find the 'JBAT1' terminal on the mobo and put jumper across pins 2-3 then back to 1-2. But it may be a faulty mobo where the charger connects to the board.
