You can clear the cmos by removing the bettery, wait for 10 to 15 seconds then reinstall the battery. you can also clear the cmos by transferring the jumper of cmos clear from your mother board. remove the jumper from pin1-2 then transfer to pin3-4 then return to pin1-2 then power on

Don't reset password BIOS HP DC7100

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!

P4SD-BO-R bios updates / manual

You will NOT get around the password. None of the tricks work. BUT, there is a very easy solution for bypassing the Password on this %$$##@@!! MB. There is a small green jumper near the CMOS battery. It covers 2 pins. Remove that jumper. You're Bios is now no longer password protected and you can do that micro update stuff. OK, so I solved your problem. Now someone else's turn to solve mine. I cannot get the audio to work on this delightful MB. Downloaded the new drivers, etc. Anyone out there solved this one? Running XP.

Hi my hp compaq d530c wont boot then it beeps four small beeps repeatedly. what could be the problem? it doesnt read the moniter at all

The problem is with your RAM. It is either damaged or its not perfectly fit in the slots. Remove it and clean the slots and insert it back. If the problem remains, replace the RAM.

HP compaq d530c timer running fast

you may check and see if it's set to the "internet time" -> "automatically syncronize with an internet time server", if there you have a wrong server, then it'll reset your time wrong, or if you have another timezone set in windows, than it'll update to that timezone.

secondly, if it's a hardware related issue, than it can be the battery
