Re: Power-on password bypass

You'll need to get under the keyboard or open some of the available openings on the bottom of the laptop.

What you're looking for is a battery. This is known as the CMOS battery. Once removed, power on the computer.

If it doesn't prompt you for the password, then you have successfully erased the memory.

Hope this helps :)

When i turn on computer power on password comes on

This could be a Windows password or a system password or both. If you don't have the Windows password and the former owner can't tell you what it is, you might have to erase the disk, reinstall Windows and thus solve the problem. A System password is a theft protection that can only be changed if you know the password. It is embedded in the laptop hardware. Ask the former owner what the password is, otherwise there is no solution but to ask Compaq Service.

Bypass power on password

Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Remove the CMOS battery.
Wait a few minutes.
Re-insert the CMOS battery.
Reconnect the battery.
Try it.

If all else fails, find your original bill-of-sale, to prove "ownership", and telephone IBM for support.

I Have A Compaq Evo N600c Laptop No Power Help!!!

Yeah it could be. Always use the correct adapter mentioned for your laptop. Otherwise it could harm the inner wirings and the motherboard. Always go for the right adapter. If it was any motherboard problem, atleast it would've blinked. So this might be the problem of your adapter or may be of the power button.

Give me password for compaq evo n600c

You can remove your bios password by reseting your CMOS battery or jamper. You need to open your notebook remove first the battery and all screw at the back of your notebook. You can see there a CMOS battery together with the CMOS jamper. Just read it you can read CLRSCR which means clear cmos, just pull it with in 10 seconds and insert it back. Now you are done to reset bios.

When you attempt to power on the compaq n600c it turns on and off repeated. the power lights come on and off, but the screen never pops up.

Try Taking The Memory Out And Then Turn it On, Then Turn It Off, And Put It Back In. Or Try Another Slot. Hope That Helps.

Fried something?

A half volt will not make any difference. Sounds like the power supply is malfunctioning. Start by trying a different one. Keep in mind that you may have fried the new motherboard by using a faulty power supply. Popping sounds indicate a short or loose/exposed wires, and are never good with any electrical device, especially a laptop since they are sensitive to power fluctuations to begin with.
