Question about HP Compaq Business dc7600 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Log in problem

I got a system off a friend... it's a Compaq dc7600. Tried to log on but every time I do enter my user name and password it says CLOSING NETWORK CONNECTION. It's got nothing to do with the password or username, definitely know that for a fact. When I'm entering the user name and password, there's also a LOG ON TO option after password. Id appreciate it if I could get sum assistance. thanx

Bought from someone else need to put my nane on it

You have to make 2 changes, One for the computer and one for the user. Here is how you do both:
  1. Right click my computer and select properties
  2. Select "Advanced System Settings" (skip if win xp)
  3. Select "Computer Name" tab
  4. click "change"
  5. Enter the name of your choice
You cannot change a user account by just changing the name. Just changing the name will make a cosmetic change only and not affect the underlying files/folders in the profile.

1. From an account with administrative privileges, go to Control Panel>User Accounts and create the new Standard user account named the way you want and at least one extra Administrator account. Call the latter "CompAdmin" or "Tech" or the like.
2. Log into the new Standard user account once so the profile files/folders are created and then log into CompAdmin.
3. Now go to Control Panel>System>Advanced>User Profiles>Settings
4. You will see where you can copy user accounts. Copy the old account to the new one from there. Use the Browse to select your new account (C:\Users\newaccount).
5. Log into the new correctly named account and make sure all your stuff is there and that it works the way you want. When you are satisfied, you can log out and into CompAdmin and delete the old user account from Control Panel>User Accounts.

If you wish to log into your new, corrected account automatically, do this:Start Orb>Search box>type: netplwiz [enter]
Click on Continue (or supply an administrator's password) when prompted by UAC

Uncheck the option "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer". Select a user account to automatically log on by clicking on the desired account to highlight it and then hit OK. Enter the correct password for that user account (if there is one) when prompted. Leave it blank if there is no password (null).

How do i unlock a compaq

When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

Restart your computer during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there

if this fails to remove your password

The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

click start control panel Open User Accounts in Control Panel. On the Users tab, click the name of the user whose password you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK. Notes You can change passwords only for local computer accounts, such as guest, administrator, or accounts you create for your computer. You cannot change your network logon password in User Accounts. To change your own password, press CTRL ALT DELETE and then click Change Password
if you are not the computer administrator and have not assigned a bios password during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there also click start control panel user accounts on the users tab,click the name of the computer administrator you must have full control can change the password there

hope this helps you

Do you want to reset a password for log in? Or into bios.

What you could do is log into windows threw safe mode. to do this press f7 during log in ( somes times it could be f8 or f9 just keep pressing them all, not at once, till it asks if you want to start up in safe mode) from their log in as the admin account open command prompt by click start then run then type cmd then ok.

You will ee a black dialogue box in their type this

net user user name*

of course instead of the user name you would put what ever the username of the account you want to change the password of

after you hit enter (after typing net user username*) it will ask what u want the new password to be enter that and then reenter it if it asks then restart in the normal way you always do and enjoy your new password

I was recently given a Compaq EVO Desktop 500 series computer with monitor (about 6 years old but rarely used). The previous owner had died and his son just wanted to get rid of it. After setting it up and...

The problem your having is not related to the passwords located in the BIOS that you have changed. The password you will need is the one from the previous owner, that is if you want to access their copy of windows XP. Being as that is not an option, I would get into the BIOS screen again and switch the boot order to boot from CD first, then install the windows CD, not the HP restore disk. This process should take you to the installation screen for windows. Part of the install asks what to do with the hard drive, I would delete any partitions on the hard drive and do a full format, create the primary partition, then install windows on the clean hard drive. During the install you will be prompted to create your own user name.

I hope this helps,
