Does this password request come up before the Windows XP logo with the scrolling dots appears? If so, you have a setup, or BIOS, password. Whoever put it there needs to remove it. This password cannot be broken. You MIGHT be able to erase it, but you have to unplug the computer, trmove the main battery, and find and remove the BIOS button battery, and leave it that way for an hour or so, then put everything back. If it worked, no more password.

    Can you boot from a floppy disk? You can make a bootable floppy by putting a blank disk in another computer, going into Windows Explorer, RIGHT-clicking on the A: drive, left-clicking Format, and checking Make System Disk. If your laptop reads the floppy, you'll still probably get the password request, but that may allow for another method of removing the password. Let me know what happens, and I'll give you more information, if necessary.

Hp pavillion dv2000 from windows vista converted into windows 7 ultimate and audio driver does not work. No sound when downloaded a driver for windows 7. please help...


Unfortunately the HP Pavilion DV2000 came with Windows Vista and HP does not have the complete set of drivers, specially for Windows 7. In these situation, it is best to go directly to the hardware manufacturer's website to get the necessary drivers. Keep in mind that computer manufacturers are not really manufacturers. They just merely assemble these computers. They order the parts from different manufacturers. Here is a link where you can download the Window 7 compatible driver for the audio card that you have in your portable system. Just click on the download button in the middle of the page.

I m using ur model HP PAVILLION DV2000


Sounds like you have a driver issue.

Start up in safe mode (press the F8 button about once per second after you power on), and select safe mode with networking.

When you get into windows, use windows update to download all updates for both software and hardware (update will till you that there are optional updates available, download these as well),

Hopefully when all that has completed you should be able to run your computer as normal. If not there may be a problem with the memory installed on the laptop.

Power on password


Hi jrodk777,

If I understand you correctly you get a DOS screen asking for your password. If this is correct, its asking for the BIOS password. Actually your better off with a BIOS password than you are with a windows password, its more secure. When you reboot your going to see a quick screen for entering setup, hit what ever F button they offer for this option. Choose password, erase or leave it blank(this will reset the BIOS password to a default of no password. If you want a BIOS password type it in here save changes and exit and you should be okay. I hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.com
