First thing to do is check the Event log and see if there's anything that's causing the startup delays. If that doesn't come up with anything obvious, you might have a corrupted user profile. Create a new user account through Control Panel and log in with that. If that doesn't help, I'd suggest doing a clean install of Windows and seeing if that solves the problem.

I have an advent netbook and when I turn it on all i get is 'bootmgr missing' ctrl,alt del to restart. If i press f11 im told to enter a password but i do not remember setting one. Is there any way...

You can try fixing the MBR if you have a spare windows disk handy.

  1. Put in the windows disk, then restart the computer
  2. If using a Windows XP disk, wait until the setup process starts and it asks if you want to install or enter recovery mode, press R to enter recovery mode. If you're using Windows 7, put in the CD, select your language and keyboard options, then select "Repair My Computer" on the bottom left.
  • XP: Press 1 then enter to select the windows installation. When it asks for the administrator password, type it if you know it. If you don't, it's probably blank, so just hit enter to go past this screen.
  • That will take you to a C: Prompt, at which you type fixmbr. That should solve your problem.
  • Windows 7: Select the OS (if none's listed, just select "next"), then click "Startup Repair". That should find/fix any startup problems. Try running it 3-4 times if it hasn't solved the problem, sometimes it takes multiple runs.
That should solve your problems, but if not the answer is to do a new installation, unfortunately. You can use the System Rescue CD to pull off any data that you need to save, then re-install the operating system and put your data back on.

I have HP 550 laptop and when I want to boot it shows POWER-ON PASSWORD and I can't boot from CD ither. If you can help mi please. thanks Djon


The startup password is not on the hard drive and thus has nothing to do with the Operating System. To clear the power on, or BIOS password, you have to wipe the CMOS. The only way to do that is to gain physical access to the motherboard, and change some of the jumpers to different pins. Do a google search for "how to wipe cmos on [your laptop make and model]."

If you can't find the jumpers, or a helpful website, you can always just take the CMOS battery off of the motherboard for 10-30 seconds. This will clear all CMOS memory and thus there will be no password.

If you don't feel like potentially damaging your laptop, take it to a computer store, they can do it. But before you spend money, or risk to your machine, try these common bios passwords: condo, djonet, lkwpeter, biostar, biosstar.

I have a Hp Compaq 6710b laptop my daughter has put a bios password now i am unable to use this laptop please help me

This site will solve your problem.

My suggestion is to remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard and plug it back in. This is NOT the laptop battery that you plug the power cord into.
Other than this, the software on the site I posted the link to can be burned onto a CD and then booted from on startup, these will either give you the password or take off the password completely for you.
Please rate, thanks!

Enter password

To repair your computer using Startup Repair follow these steps:
  1. Boot into Vista installation DVD
  2. Choose your language settings and click Next
  3. Click Repair your computer
  4. Choose your operating system and click Next. This should bring up System Recovery Options.
  5. Click on Startup Repair
Startup Repair should now start diagnosing your system to identify the root cause of the failure. Once it has identified the root cause, it would automatically start repairing your computer. If you are curious to know what Startup Repair did, you can click on the details link and see which tests Startup Repair ran to diagnose the problem.
After Startup Repair has finished the repairs, click Finish to reboot your computer.
Your computer should now be able to boot normally into Vista!!
Note -- If your computer cannot boot into Vista even after repairs, then go back to System Recovery Options and run System Restore.
That's it! This is how you use Startup Repair for most unbootable situations.
