If you cannot access the machine after if has been powered up, it is still possible to get past the BIOS password. The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard.

Open the CPU casing locate the CMOS battery in motherboard and remove this battery, all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.

On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove. If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password. If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is. If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper.

This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.

If all else fails, you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard.
Many RTC's require an external battery. If your RTC is one of this type, you can clear the BIOS password just by unsocketing the RTC and reseating it. Good luck!

I forgot my power on password. How can I resolve this problem.


open the computer and look for the bios battery, (a small round silver disc in a holder) remove it for a minute or so and put it back in. If you restart the computer, the bios is reset and you won't have to enter the password.

Picked up a HP dc7100 but will not boot from sata


You should have an option on the dc7100 in bios to enable sata in the devices section. Mine always worked fine with sata. If nothing else works remove the security chip, reset the cmos and reboot with the Hard Drive connected and it should connect. If that doesn't work Try flashing the bios just in case it got corrupted.

When trying to power on the red led light at the front of the unit is constantly flashing and will not power on, any ideas?


According to the Compaq Service Reference Manual (http://www.manualshark.org/m/hewlett-packard-hp-compaq-dc7100-convertible-minitower-pc-hp-compaq-dx6100-and-dc7100-series-personal-computer-service-reference-card-28379/) There are several codes listed but not for a steady red LED. Try first unplugging the unit, press and hold the power button for 5 seconds to clear any residual charge in the machine. Then plug it back in, turn the power on and note the error codes. Compare the codes with those of the document link I have posted. Both the keyboard and chassis LED's will display error conditions accompanied by a series of beeps from the units speaker. It sounds as though you have a hardware failure, but until you can verify the error codes with the HP/Compaq service manual, I can't say for sure.

How to remove cmos/bios password ?


A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

B. By Using Software:

I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

How to resets bios for compaq 2514 at


Why? What happend? Is it asking for a BIOS password?
If it is asking you have to short two jumpers on the systemboard to have it reset.
If not, just go in to BIOS by pressing F2 then restore or optimize default settings on BIOS.

Hope this helps...
