I have a hp-compaq presario c300 and i forgot my power- on password. i need help! or need backdoor password in order to fix. please!


NEVER install a power on password without making a note somewhere as to that password is - there is no fix appart from replace the m/board as the POPW is within the cmos chipset - there is a rest button on the m/board but I do not think it will clear this problem. It is located under the top cover just below the mouse input port - requires removing the top cover - screen keyboard ect.

My compaq presario c300 wont start up, power button illuminates the cooling fan kicks in then all the lights flicker and it the swithes off,


This is exactly the same problem as I have. I have changed the power brick and the battery but the problem still exists. PC World were useless and said it "probably needed a new motherboard" although I doubt this is the issue. It worked when I first put the new battery in, until the initial charge ran out. Did you find a solution?

Sometimes when a PC gets stuck in hibernation mode, the only way to reset it is to remove the CMOS battery for 10 minutes and replacing it. It resembles a large watch battery and is usually located near the center of the motherboard.
