    No, I did not -- Do you mean the power battery or the small button battery on the mother board? -- Originally I thought it might be the administrator password, but it will not even boot into safe mode by holding down F8

Check if your hard rive indicator light is flashing (has disc shape icon or can shape icon next to it). If it is then put in your windows disc and do a startup repair. Make sure it is booting from the disc drive first. if it isnt flashing then you may have a dead hard drive. Try taking the hard drive out and putting it back in.

Put in windows disc. Make sure computer boots from disc drive. Do a startup repair in vista/7. In XP let the disc load then select REPAIR COMPUTER. It will go into recovery console. Type your password, select your drive, then type CHKDSK /R. Let it scan. Restart.

Are you getting the Acer logo on start up? If so you might have a software issue on the hard drive, or the hard drive itself is defective. I suggest using your recovery disc to re-install windows and drivers providing you have them.

That blinking cursor is the way in which the BIOS is telling you that Windows is not loading because its most critical, core files have been corrupted beyond repair. The only thing you can do is to reinstall using the recovery cd or your own Windows install disk.

Have a think pad 600 type 2645 with eo301 error, there is a display of a padlock w/ no1 and a blinking cursor on the top left corner


This laptop is protected with a Power on Password.
The password is setup from the BIOS configuration.
There is no backdoor password available and you need the password to boot up the laptop. Once you can boot up the laptop you can enter the BIOS configuration to remove the Power on password.
Removing the BIOS battery to restore the factory defaults will not remove the password because the password is stored on an EEPROM chip.

Unknown pass word for Toshiba Qosmio G35


First the safe mode start up key is F8 if you press this as soon as you see the manufacturer logo on startup should bring up another menu manufacture logo would be dell hp ECT. . . Second if you haven't set a password sometimes just pressing enter on the keyboard with the password blank will Log you in. The reason you would you safe mode is some computers have an administrative safe mode account that does not require a password unless it was changed in safe mode hope this helps if you have any questions please comment

Black screen w/blinking cursor


So.. you can select safe mode? Or you turn it on and it is resuming into the blank screen?

If the latter. Unplug the power, pull the battery out for 20 seconds or so. Then put it all back together and try booting up.
