You can do a CMOS/BIOS reset which will clear all the configurations including any password(s).

To reset the CMOS/BIOS. you need to open the case of your desktop PC and locate the jumper (JP1) for this purpose on the motherboard. It is located near the AGP Port, below the AMR1 connector. You need to move the jumper from the 2 pins where it is currently located and move it to the opposite pair (center pin will be common of course). After a few seconds place back to original position.


On reboot, press "Del" key to enter CMOS/BIOS setup, select Standard/BIOS default, Save & Exit, reboot "Del" key again, set to your preferences.

Good luck and kind regards.

Windows Advanced Options Menu

Please select an option:

Debugging Mode

Start Windows Normally
Return to OS Choices Menu

Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice

select safe mode with command prompt

Click start run type cmd press Enter

black screen should open DOS mode

this will vary depending on your operating system

type in net user username

For eg. If you want to change administrator password , type net user Administrator

it will prompt you to enter the new password

enter the new password and the password is changed

if this fails you will need to

you could download all of these or just one save them to a usb drive for later use if one fails to remove the password

In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK.

On boot up computer keeps restarting with a single beep motherboard model- k7sem elite group

the symptom you're describing my be a classic Gigabyte response to bad memory. First of all, go into bios, make sure your RAM voltage and timings are set correctly. If they are correct, you likely have a bad stick of RAM. Remove one stick, test the system, if the problem persists, swap sticks and try again
also try this if it continues Right click My Computer click Properties -> Advanced -> Startup and Recovery. Uncheck Automatically restart. It should give you a blue screen that may give you some indication as to the cause.

Replaced hdd on emachine w3615,light on mobo but it wont come on.

Hi ipackrat21, that little green led you see is telling you the motherboard has standby power. (Its supposed to be green & on).
Make sure the hdd jumper is set to, master without a slave). In a one hdd system.
When you replaced the hdd you also need to enter the bios menu.
In the bios you'll need to make some changes. First you should see the new hdd listed in the bios. (Normally it list the hdd by model). If your hdd is shown than go to the title "BOOT". You need to set the boot order. A normal boot order would list like so;
First boot device, Floppy disk drive".
Second boot device, "CR-ROM" drive.
Third boot device, "Your new hdd".
If your bios does not see your hdd you'll need to re-check the data cable from the board to the drive. (Make sure it is fully connected).
If the drive is an IDE/PATA make sure it has power. A 4-pin molex.

Still have trouble, post it here.

Go to this page:

Pick motherboad in the first box in the upper left.
Then pick Socket 462 in the next box
Then pick K7SEM
Then the board's version (should be written on the board next to K7SEM or onscreen when you first boot)

You will be taken to this board's drivers page.

Removing BIOS Password

Check the specifications on the manufacturer site to determine if there is a jumper on the motherboard to reset the BIOS. If not, simply unplug the BIOS battery on the motherboard and wait for 10 minutes before plugging the battery back in and the BIOS should be reset.

Note that you will need to reconfigure the settings in the BIOS prior to booting the system.
