Power on password forgotten! How can the computer be started?

Someone borrowed my compaq nx6110 and returned it later with a problem: the computer cannot be started, the power comes up but it is asking for a power-on password which no one knows. It doesn't even enter BIOS Setup. It just ask for that password which when you try three times, and it is always wrong, you have to restart again and try afresh for another failure! Pls, help.

Please try using the following password without the quotes
"Compaq"

If the password does not work, let us know. Also please let us know the BIOS software that you have.

The Power on Password is set from the BIOS configuration. Ask that person who borrowed your Compaq for the password. Once you have this password, you can enter the BIOS configuration and remove/disable this password.
Depending how old you Compaq is, removing the BIOS battery and main battery for 15+ mins may remove this password and restore the BIOS to the factory default (insert both batteries again) and configure the BIOS Date and Time etc.
BUT if the the password is stored on an EEPROM chip then removing will not fix this problem. There are no backdoor passwords available.

Acer aspireone D257-13473 forgotten windows 7 password


Ooooooh, you're up the creek without a paddle unless you took the time to create a Password Reset Disk. Otherwise you will have to Reinstall Windows 7.

And the thing is 99% of people don't take the time to create the password reset disk. It can't be a password reset disk that you borrow from someone else, it has the be the one you created on your system.

I have compaq 510 laptop . don t have password . and my laptop is dispaly power on password . so plaese help me how to solve problem ] thank you hardik dave


If you have a Windows password reset disk, you can easily reset forgotten Windows password with it. If not, you can follow the steps to create one. You just need an available computer which can link to the Internet.

Step 1: Download and install Windows Password Breaker with the available computer.

Step 2: Run the program and burn a Windows password reset bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive.

Step 3: Reset your forgotten password with the created disk or USB flash drive.

It is easy and safe.

Power on password on nx6310 hp compaq


Welcome to FixYa! You have a laptop that is one of few that HP provides a command line procedure for. Follow these steps and you will be able to reset that password. If you have forgotten the first password then disable it as for any other brand/model it is an unforgiving procedure to undo that action.
 Resetting the Computer ( These steps also clear CMOS): 1. Enter an incorrect password and press enter. 2. Repeat Step 1 two times. After the third entry of the incorrect password, the computer responds with a “System Disabled” message and provides an override password. 3. Access MS/DOS by clicking Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. 4. Enter “unlock6 xxxxx 0,” where “xxxxx” is the password generated by the computer in Step 2. The computer responds with another system-generated password. This password can be used to reset the computer and clear all CMOS settings.
Please post back if you need further assistance or simply rate a FixYa for me if you are successfu. Steve Medley

Compaq presario r 30000 need to bypass power on password    password is not working . need to restore to factory setting


Power On The Power On password is set in the System BIOS options. It prevents unwanted users from accessing the computer. By default, HP does not set the Power On password. If you set the Power On password in the System BIOS options you will be prompted for it immediately after you power on the Notebook PC. If this password is forgotten, a repair at an HP certified repair center is required to reset the computer. Please contact HP to schedule a repair. This service is not covered by the warranty. Drive Lock The Drive Lock password protects the data on your hard drive through encryption. If your computer is stolen, the data on the hard drive is inaccessible without the Drive Lock password. This password cannot be reset. If it is lost or forgotten, the hard drive must be replaced. Please contact HP to order a new hard drive. This service is not covered by the warranty.

How to reset power-on password.


The only way is to clear the cmos settings. However, there is a special way to do it. First you have to take out the battery and the power adaptor from the laptop. Then you need to open the laptop and look on the main board for the cmos battery. Take it out for a few minutes, maybe 5 - 10 minutes. Then plug in the power adaptor without the cmos battery nor the laptop battery and boot the computer. It will ask you to hit F1 to either load default values or to save settings. Do that. Then shut down the computer. Make sure settings is saved though. Put in back the cmos battery and the laptop battery. When you reboot, it should boot up with no password.
