Question about Computers & Internet
I have an Acer C720 Cromebook. When I go to set up , it says I have a "badphrase" when I put in the password after I entered the SSID. What does that mean??
Hello. This may help. Your Wireless Network name and SSID are one in the same. Lot's of people will customize there wireless network name (SSID) like "smithfamily". However, if it wasn.t customized the default SSID should be used. This can be found on the sticker on your modem. Now then, as you know, when you try to connect to your network you are prompted to provide a network Key or PASSPHRASE. The same applies here as above, if it was customized then the Key or PASSPHRASE will be different then the default Key or Passphrase found on your router.--So when it say's you have a "badphrase", your Key or PASSPHRASE is incorrect.. Good Luck

Password was set by the last person who setup Bios. The only way to delete password is to disconnect battery, or even internal battery to clear the memory.

Have you tried ignoring the message and letting it boot normally? The computer might be set to show the POST screen on boot. Let it run and see what happens.

looks like hardware failure.
find out what harddisk exactly you do have in the bios :
- press Del or F1 or F2 during booting, goto IDE devices, look for the model, size (in GB) etc.,
write down (the manufacturer could be: samsung, seagate, maxtor, fujitsu...)
- then change order of boot devices so that cd/dvd-rom drive and /or 3,5 '' floppy drive boots
before the harddisk, exit saving changes (F10 or Esc)
- then get diagnosis program from the harddisk manufacturer's homepage,
copy that to a bootable floppy disk or burn it to a cd-r/cd-rw which must be bootable
- boot from the cd or floppy, run diagnosis tool, both short and long test, what does it say then?
- if hardformat is available, perform one
- might work now, at least the hd will be recognized
-setup new windows installation.
