    This laptop have been setup with a Power on Password.

    You need to get the password from the person who set it. There are no backdoor passwords available.

    The password is stored on an EEPROM chip and removing the BIOS battery will not remove the password.

    Where did you get the laptop from?

    That lock symbol seems to be software generated (if it was left on some moments). But if it's upon start up, it could be a BIOS security setting to restrict unauthorized use.

This mean that password is set up in BIOS. Turn on your machine and press F1 to go into bios and disable the password then F10 to exit/save changes then boot up machine normally.

HPNX7000. Blank screen when the labtop is on.


Try pressing Fn + F4. You might've switched the display to the external VGA port by accident.

Startup problem


that wouldn't mean the processor is off, it means there is a problem with the motherboard. I don't know the exact problem with the motherboard. but it could be something wrong with the processor too. but I suggest you take your PC to like Circuit city, best buy, or your local computer shop to have them take a look at.

Fujitsu c series labtop screen goes blank, the hooked up to a monitor, starts to work then says out of frequence and goes blank


The video resolution and/or frequency that's set in windows is not supported by the monitor you have plugged in. Restart the PC in VGA mode (hit F8 after the BIOS messages but before any Windows messages) and change the video settings to something basic, such as 800 x 600 @ 60 Hz. Then restart the machine normally.
