Remove the Bios battery, (looks like a coin on the motherboard). you need to do this with the power cable unplugged. wait for about 30 seconds then replace the battery. then connect power and boot up, you will still have invalid configuration. but you should be able to get into setup as the password will have been cleared. you can then load the default settings (optimised if possible) usually be pressing f9 in the bios. hopefully that should do it.

    I've seen on the forums that the PSUs, capacitence can keep feeding enough power for the BIOS not to default, some people have real problems with these. try removing power & BIOS battery, change the PSWD jumper, last resort is to insert CMOS battery upsidedown, REMEMBER to undo all these changes before plugging back in again.

Tis seems to be a problem with your BIOS. I will suggest you to open the CPU tower and take out the CMOS battery. It is located on the mother board. And it looks like a coin. Just take out the battery and put it back and all will be fine.

I removed my battery from my Dell Dimension desk top, waited and then put battery back in and started my computer.


When you removed the battery your computer lost all of it's configuration settings. You have to go into the set-up menu and and select the devices that are installed on your computer. Such as floppy drive, CD drive, DVD drive. Also have to set date and time.

How can my friend connect to my network


To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Dell Ispriron E1505 has a display message, invalid configuration information Please run setup program but won't go into setup. Machine goes to preparing setup menu and then screen goes grey and machine...


Try removing both memory sticks and then booting up with just one installed. The bios should notice a shift in the amount of memory and prompt you to enter the bios.

Let me know if that works.

Power-on password forgotten! How can the computer be started?


The Power on Password is set from the BIOS configuration. Ask that person who borrowed your Compaq for the password. Once you have this password, you can enter the BIOS configuration and remove/disable this password.
Depending how old you Compaq is, removing the BIOS battery and main battery for 15+ mins may remove this password and restore the BIOS to the factory default (insert both batteries again) and configure the BIOS Date and Time etc.
BUT if the the password is stored on an EEPROM chip then removing will not fix this problem. There are no backdoor passwords available.

Router configuration


you need to open the configuration page of the ADSL router and enter the configuration settings manually.

into your browser type http://192.168.0.1 >> username: admin >> password: admin

then in the setup page...enter the correct setting provided by your ISP...like encapsulation...multiplexing..VPI / VCI etc...call them if you have to...then enter your username and password for your internet account (you need to contact your ISP also for this.)

if ever you still cant enter into routers setup page...you can reset it to factory default...at the back of the router...there is a small hole..(usually in red border).....

turn on router >> then push a stick into the hole (small stick enough for the hole) for about 5 secs...then try again http://192.168.0.1 >> username: admin >> passoword: admin

if you need further info...please post back. good luck
