How to enter to zx6000's BIOS? I just bought a used one HP´s zx6000 WS and have no previous experience using it. The first time I turned it on, displays this message: "RTC invalid time/date field parameter". I guess entering BIOS will fix the message, but How can I enter to this machine's BIOS? I tried pressing F1, F2, F10 Keys without success. Can you help me?

The HP Integrity systems don't use BIOS, they use EFI (Extensible Firmware Interface). I have an rx2600, which is practically identical to the zx6000, apart from having faster blowing fans, being pre-configured with an AGP/PCI riser board and so on.

Best is to hook up a serial console (i.e. RS-232 null-modem) cable and see what happens, if there's no graphical output to the monitor. As the system comes up, the EFI Boot Manager should give you the following built-in options:
• EFI Shell
• Boot Option Maintenance Menu
• System Configuration Menu

You can get the manuals for this product online at HP's site. I am looking at the Operation And Maintenance Guide for HP Workstation zx6000 HP Server rx2600 right now. in .pdf format. but there is nothing in there about this problem. I would suggest downloading it though, 27MB manual with a wealth of information on it! There is also a startup guide. and other manuals.

What OS are you running on this machine? Is it windows or linux?

If you can get to a command line > sudo /sbin/hwclock --set --date "08/04/2000 08:33:25"

replace the date and time with todays date and time of coarse but I found that little gem of info on the web. I hope it helps.

I cant remember my login password and f8 does not work in safe mode still asking the password


Once you assign a password to your HP computer's BIOS configuration utility, you will need to enter that password every time you attempt to access the BIOS.
If you forget this password, don't fret there is still a way to unlock your BIOS without actually knowing the original user defined password.
This involves using a "backdoor" password, which is something that is installed onto your BIOS at the factory level that never changes.

Turn on your HP computer.
Press "F2" to load your HP BIOS access screen.
A password prompt will load on your monitor.
Type "merlin" into the password field (with no quotes) and hit your "Enter" keyboard key to unlock your HP BIOS password.

Problem with HP pavillion ze4900 harddrive. bios says no IDE device when trying to find hard drive.


Hello,

You can try to boot from CD/DVD drive with XP cd to see if the install program can find the hard drive. Try to use default setting in the BIOS.

Sounds to me like your hard drive crashed. I had one that did this and same thing. You can either replace the hard drive, use an external hard drive/flash drive (load the os and download laptop drivers) or use a cd based OS like Knoppix.

If you need help with the XP CD let me know.

I hope this helps!!!

Need to reset bios password on Daytona-a rev 3.3 mboard


Enter the BIOS at power on, rather than booting windows, and go through the settings. Put in your old password and enter a new one as prompted on the screen.
If you bought this used, and there is a password from a previous owner, you can go to the system board and remove the small jumper that maintains the password lock for the BIOS. This should allow you access to the BIOS if you're locked out by a previous owner's password.

On my Toshiba Satellite Laptop I have opened and started the computer but can't get past the sign in window because my enter key and space bar won't respond. I can type letters but can not enter...


> hardware problem or software or keyboard?

Experiment #1: turn the computer off. Connect a USB keyboard. Turn the computer on. Use that keyboard to try the 'TAB' key (to move from field-to-field). If TAB works, then try using the SPACE or ENTER keys.

Experiment #2: turn the computer off. Turn the computer on, and look for the message:

PRESS <blah> to ENTER BIOS SETUP

When you see the message, press the <blah> key. On the BIOS SETUP menus, try the ENTER key to "select" a field, to prove that the ENTER key works fine.

Experiment #3: Turn the computer off. Disconnect the AC power. Remove the battery.
Remove the disk-drive. Take the original CD/DVD disk, and start to install Windows to the disk-drive. As you work through the installation screens, you'll need to press ENTER at least once,
if only to acknowledge that installation cannot proceed, because the disk-drive is not connected.
If the ENTER key works, it works.

Experiment #4: Like #3, but connect a different, empty, disk-drive, and reinstall Windows.
If it completes, then your "original" setup has a SOFTWARE problem.

Hi!

To unlock your set requires two steps: the first is to get past the lock screen.To do that, press the QV( or previous channel?) and 9 buttons at the same time when you are asked to enter your lock code.
Now that you're past the lock screen, find the menu that covers locking and unlocking. QV/9 (previous channel/9) is a one-time bypass; if you turn the set off, it'll be locked again when you turn it on, so you first need to LOCK it again, with a pass code you can remember (try 1,1,1,1). Once you lock it, you can exit from all the menus, then try to change inputs. It'll ask for a pass code, which you now know!

Please ask for further clarifications and rate the solution as Fixya if found useful.

Thanks
