Power on pasword lost

You would need to disassemble the notebook to access the RTC battery. Remove the battery for around five seconds and reinsert it. reassemble the notebook and power it on without reinstalling the battery pack. This will reset CMOS and clear the BIOS password. If you are uncomfortable doing this yourself, I would strongly suggest finding a technician to do it for you.

It's time for a new monitor. Loss of focus is one of the symptoms of a picture tube (CRT) that has reached the end of its life. There is an internal focus adjustment that might make some improvement, but it will never look right again. The only cure is to replace the tube, but that is completely uneconomical. A new LCD monitor will cost less than a replacement CRT, if one can even be found. And setting up the replacement needs special tools and programming software not available. Dispose of this one appropriately (take it to a recycler to keep hazardous materials out of the trash) and treat yourself to a new monitor.

I turn on the monitor and Compaq 7020 comes on the screen in color for about 2 seconds then goes black. The computer is on and everything is plugged in correctly

use a flahlight see if you can see an image faintly in the screen, if so the backlight is failing. if not, check your VGA or DVI cable connection on both ends. sometimes there is more than one port on the back of the computer, try the other port if you have two of them,

I am having problems connecting to wireless with my TI PCI-1420 Cardbus Controller on my Dell Latitude C510 after I reinstalled Windows XP. It is acting like there is no wireless adapters at all.

You need Service Pack 2 or above to use wireless on XP. I have always hated this problem and feel your frustration.

You will need to either hook your computer up on a wired connection to get the service pack or download it on another computer and transfer it by some type of removable media (CD, floppy).

You will need an S-video (I'm looking at a 620c and the jack is on the far left back w/TV icon) - not positive that is on the 600c. Also need audio from the headphone to the the plasma. There is a good free DVD player called classic media player or something like it at downloads. com
