Why does my computer on bootup ask for system password then locks up too many attempts?


If you mean Bios password try this:
Resetting the BIOS PSSWRD, Open the computer case and look inside on the motherboard. Dell has diagrams of this. Locate the Little Jumper. It should have small print if you can read on the mother board indicating PSSWRD CLR. Boot the computer to Setup. Carefully remove jumper, becareful of static, and then once removed hit enter. Shutdown the computer, and restart and enter Setup again F2. The password should be CLR. Turn OFF and PUT Jumper back into place and Turn Back ON. You should be able to access Setup.

If you then boot to setup-check your hard drives and floppy that are seen. You may solve those issues in setup.

If you mean the windows password: boot to F8 safe mode and log
on to the ADMINISTRATOR not your log in that has admin rights.
Disable all passwords and restart.

Change boot cd rom bios300


Your IBM 300 series desktop computer is normally set to boot its operating system directly from the installed hard disk drive.
There are some cases where you may want to boot from a different device, such as loading from the floppy drive to install a new operating system.
In order to change the boot order on the IBM computer you need to access the Basic Input Output System (BIOS) menu.

Close any applications that are still running.
Turn off the IBM 300PI computer and then turn it back on again.
Tap the "F1" key when the "Configuration/Setup Utility" prompt appears at the bottom of the screen.
Tap the down arrow key four times to highlight the "Start Options" entry.


Press the Enter key.
Highlight the "Startup Sequence" entry and then press Enter again.

Scroll down and highlight "First Startup Device."
Press Enter. Scroll through the list of available boot order devices.
Highlight the device you want to use, such as "CD Drive" or "Floppy Drive," and press Enter.

Press the "Escape" key twice.
Highlight "Save Settings" and then tap Enter.
Power off the IBM computer and then power it back on.

How to restore system


im assuming you have the recovery disk

Restart the computer and press the pause/break key on the keyboard.


This key will slow down the boot process and allow you to see the motherboard BIOS access key that you'll need to press in order to access the motherboard BIOS.


Press the respective motherboard access key and check the motherboard BIOS for a boot sequence.

Change the settings in the boot sequence so the primary boot device or the first boot drive is the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.


Insert the system recovery disc into the disc drive.

Restart the computer and allow it to boot up before doing anything.


A black screen should show up with the words Press any key to boot from disc CD/DVD.
Press a key to have the system boot from the recovery disc.


Allow the system to load.

Follow the on-screen instructions on how to install the rest of the operating system.


There are many different settings for you to choose.
If the operating system is just a little out of whack, you can choose to repair it.


The system recovery disc will contain important drivers and software for all the components connected to the computer system.


If you do not have a system restore disc you can search the Internet for drivers and software that are packaged for your specific eMachines model.


Restore the BIOS to their default settings so the hard drive is primary boot sequence.

This is an optional step.


You can leave the CD-ROM drive as the primary boot drive, but it will slow down the startup process by a few seconds.

hope this helps

How can i change boot sequence of my desktop


You have to change the boot order at the bios settings. Just after the screen comes up, before windows start up press (repeatly) the F2 key (depending on the model, maybe F1 or del key) and go to the boot sequence. Here change the boot order as you wish.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Ibm not boot from usb


When the system starts up there is usually a key to hit for SETUP, usually ESC, F1, F4, or DEL

Find it, and hit it at the right time.

You will enter the CMOS or BIOS setup.

Once there, locate the BOOT SEQUENCE section and allow a USB boot or external component Boot to be placed int he sequence it it MIGHT work.

Not sure what you're trying to boot from USB for.

Restarting while formatting


Hi, try to check your pc's cmos setup on boot sequence, you would be needing to set the sequence to boot the system on CD drive first then your hardrive; then disable boot virus protection - this will make your OS installation with no interruption. Then save your cmos changes. you have to put your operating system program installer on your cd drive then watch the message to boot from your cd drive. hope this helps.
