SOURCE: power on password

did you set the password from the bios settings? if so, reset your bios by opening your pc casing (be sure that its unplugged) locate the bios reset jumper (mostly found near the battery cell in the motherboard) take out the plastic jumper from pins 1 and 2 and set it to pins 2 and 3 and wait for about 10 seconds then put it back to its original settings ( 1 and 2 ). close your casing and start your pc

SOURCE: I recover the operating system

Go into the BIOS by pressing f10 when powering on the laptop.

Go to System Configuration and choose Device Configuration

Scroll down to SATA Native Mode and disable.

Press f10 to save configuration. The computer should reboot and press f9 to select boot device.

See if the 160GB hdd is now showing as an option. If it is then you are in luck.

p.s: You may need to update the BIOS to the latest if it still does not show up for you.

HP Mini Notebook 2140 when i go into bios i am asked for a setup password


I recommend removing and reinstalling the CMOS battery but you will need to open up your laptop to do this. Otherwise, this link provides some software options to cracking and resetting the password:

http://www.tech-faq.com/reset-bios-password.html



On the second page of this guide, you will see a circular yellow battery (the CMOS battery) depicted in step 5. This is what needs to be popped out, wait several seconds and put it back in.

Computer wont start or boot up cursor line on top blinks please help ?


Your computer can't find the OS on your hard drive. Most likely the boot sector has been damaged (or someone reformatted the drive). The entire hard disc may have failed.

Since this is a netbook, you will either need an external optical drive (USB) and a copy of the OS to boot from or a USB flash drive that has been prepared as a boot version of the OS. HP offers the Mini 5101 with WinXP Home, SUSE Linux or FreeDos. There may be newer versions with other OS options. Make sure to get the correct OS, even if you upgraded it.

You will need to boot to the optical drive or the flash drive. On other computers, this may involve accessing the BIOS to change the boot order. Look for a splash screen with the key information. Then turn off the computer and turn it back on while repeatedly pressing the key. (F1, Esc, Del, and F10 are common keys.) If you miss the timing, turn off the computer and try again.

If you are using XP, you will need to enter the Recovery Console. Then enter the command line mode. If your command prompt starts with any character other than C. Type C: then press Enter. Next type CD WINDOWS. Then try the BOOTCFG /REBUILD and see if a Windows OS is found. (type the command in and then press enter). Then type in the command FIXBOOT. This repairs the boot sector. You will need to confirm the commands. Type CD .. and CHKDSK /R /F to check for and fix damaged hard drive areas

If this worked, type EXIT. Try rebooting the computer. Otherwise use the command FIXMBR and then exit. Enter the HP recovery program (on the original hard disc or on Recovery discs, if you made them). Restore the computer to the original configuration with that program. If you ever did anything to repartition the hard drive, the recovery partition may not be accessible. You will lose any stored files and need to reinstall any programs you added to the netbook.

I hope this helps. Please note: losing this part of the hard drive may indicate that you have a failing hard disc. You will need to decide if you want to replace the drive or the netbook. If you decide to replace the hard drive, match the original drive size and data/power specifications (2.5" drive and SATA cable, probably). Use a USB/SATA/IDE hard drive adapter and a cloning software either added to the hard drive or from an optical disc to transfer the OS to the new drive and then set it as the boot drive before installing it in the netbook.

FORGOT USER PASSWORD HP MINI 1104


As an individual Windows password recovery tool, we just need 3 steps to reset lost HP password.
Step1: Download Windows Password Recovery Enterprise and install on any available PC.
Step2: Burn HP password reset CD/DVD or USB to reset lost Windows password.
Step3. Set your locked pc BIOS to boot from CD/DVD-ROM or USB Flash Drive.
Step4. Reset lost HP password to Re123456 together with the burned CD/DVD or USB Flash Drive.
Not only HP password reset, Windows Password Recovery Enterprise can also be used to recover domain password on Windows server 2008/2003/2000 and local password for Windows XP/Vista/NT etc.

How to unlock password for a HP 2140 Mini-Note


If you are talking about the login to Windows password then here is one way to do it:
Create a bootable USB stick using this tool: http://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/

Use the image from Ophcrack to load onto the USB: http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/download.php Choose the XP LIVE CD Option
1. Download the YUMI exe to your desktop 2.. Save the LIVE CD of Ophcrack to your desktop. 3. Plug in the usb stick you want to use (make sure it is at least 500MB. 1GB if possible) 4. Run the YUMI EXE and follow the instructions. Make sure to choose the USB Drive Letter ("D:" E:" etc) 5. Choose the Ophcrack ISO for the image. 6. Install to USB 7. Click Finished and exit the program and close any other open programs. 8. Restart the computer. Leave USB plugged in. 9. As soon as the computer restarts, tap the F10 button to enter the BIOS Menu. 10. Scroll to the Boot / Advanced Menu and change the boot order to USB first, HDD second. 11. Save and exit BIOS. Computer will restart. 12. Once booted up the computer will bypass the HDD and boot into the USB 13. elect Ophcrack from the list and hit Enter. 14. Follow the on-screen instructions to have Ophcrack force the password.

(If you're using Linux then use the Linux LIVE CD Image instead of XP)
