    Thanks for the info. After reducing the PC to a minimum system, it's obvious something went wrong at the moment the password issue came up. The PS goes into Overcurrent protection mode when the system is powered on. (Tested and confirmed).

    Sooo... it appears that I'm in the market for a new MB.

    I do appreciate the input. I thought I had lost my way when I remembered that I had a PS tester and to bring the system to minimum configuration. Had already pulled the CMOS battery
    when I posted.

    I'm certainly interested in the MB you mentioned. Can you email me details/price info? Not to be obtuse or difficult, drop the PZ from my handle and add 202atbellsouthdotnet. Just trying to obscure my info from bots...

Assuming we are talking about Bios only (not windows) what you describe (on a typcial motherboard) is impossible. Here is what I suggest.

1. Remove battery.
2. Set jumpers correctly meaning how they were originally.
3. If this does not work as normal then you will have to flash your bios.
4. You will need to know your motherboard model, get on the internet, go to mfg site, get the bios and flash utility (it will fit on a diskette) and go from there.

If this does not work simply comment back and I will get the message. We can go to step 2 then. Tango...

    Have an extra motheroboard with a 2800 AMD in it....if interested and 512 mg ram. If not shop at Pricewatch.com...not a sales site. It's a site that rates and ranks by price....you will like it. Fyi....I have four systems....(necessary for the work I do)....Win98, XP, Vista and linux. The systems range from a a 400htz machine to a 4400. I actually use a stripped version of Win98 for the internet on a fast dsl liine. Guess which machine is fastest....yep, the Win98 machine. The key is keeping the registry clean (ccleaner and wiseregistrycleaner) and getting rid of all the Macroshaft junk. Since you sound like a smart guy....here's something to think about...why hasn't Microsoft ever developed a good registry cleaner.....(hint...think sales and machines getting slower and slower and slower among the general population).....this is my personal grrrrrrr. I pass it on to you for your "decision" realtive to a mobo. Tango out.

Why does my computer on bootup ask for system password then locks up too many attempts?


If you mean Bios password try this:
Resetting the BIOS PSSWRD, Open the computer case and look inside on the motherboard. Dell has diagrams of this. Locate the Little Jumper. It should have small print if you can read on the mother board indicating PSSWRD CLR. Boot the computer to Setup. Carefully remove jumper, becareful of static, and then once removed hit enter. Shutdown the computer, and restart and enter Setup again F2. The password should be CLR. Turn OFF and PUT Jumper back into place and Turn Back ON. You should be able to access Setup.

If you then boot to setup-check your hard drives and floppy that are seen. You may solve those issues in setup.

If you mean the windows password: boot to F8 safe mode and log
on to the ADMINISTRATOR not your log in that has admin rights.
Disable all passwords and restart.

My hp a 1410n desktop powers up but shuts down after five seconds


#1 on the list for this is shut down from over heat due to CPU fan not running or CPU overheat. Check to see if your CPU fan is turning on when your system is powering up. If its not.. thats your problem (get a new fan)... Even if it is it could mean the fan is not properly contacting the CPU with thermal paste. If this is the first time you\'ve powered the system up, your next step is to go out and get some thermal paste and put it under the CPU fan, if you\'ve been running the system and this problem just cropped up.. skip the thermal paste, its already there. #2 Next possibility is BIOs power settings are incompatible with your hardware. For example the frequency on the CPU is set higher then it can operate and its over heating. Some systems will automatically shut down and restart with default settings others you have to get into and set to default. can you get into BIOS? Can you reset your BIOS settings to defaults? Check your mother board manual. #3 A compenent is shorting out your system and needs to be replaced. Is the system posting prior to shutdown (beeping once on start up?) If its beeping more then once that means something else and you should read your manual. If its not beeping then its a short somewhere and you can bet you have a bad part in the system. To identify which part it is you can either disconnect things (RAM, Drives, vid card, PCI cards,ect) one at a time, attempting to start the system after each one or you can take everything but the bare bones out and try to start it. I usually take all the RAM out but one stick and start by testing them. Your RAM is the most likely place for a problem in this situation. #4 If you\'ve striped it down and it still can\'t get a boot (with no post beep). You need to replace the mother board.

Which Password? Bios Password?Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password?

Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista?Windows 7?OK,if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightened security on it so you've gotto have a password reset disk which 99% of the people who own laptops withwindows 7 fail to do. It should be one of the first things you do whenyou buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced with reinstalling theOperating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator(hopefully you didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once thedesktop appears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the iconsbigger, but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

Added 2 1GB memory to a T5048. Will not boot. do I need to upgrade the BIOS? Also want to disable on-board graphics and add a pci graphic card.


There are two variants of the T5048 One uses DDR PC3200 ram the other uses DDR2 PC5300
Should be able to look at the old ram and it should say on it what it is. If it doesn't, take out the new, put in the old ram and go here http://www.crucial.com/store/drammemory.aspx Run the "Scan My Computer"
Some computers will have a setting in BIOS to disable on board video although eMachine are very low end and probably don't offer that. Shouldn't need to just install your video card and plug your monitor into it. It should work just fine without disabling on board.

Comment if you need more help

I have installed extra RAM im my vgc-m1. But it does not boot up, just keeps going to boot up normally with windows. I have checked bios setup and it recognises the extra ram, I have also got latest bios...


Hi crobinsona
The extraRam is not compatible with your system or the manufacturer's product isn't neither . Check in the Bios to see what exact type of Ram is supported . Download and install Sandra from http://download.cnet.com/SiSoftware-Sandra/3000-2086_4-10556571.html . It will give you detailed description of the existing RAM and allow you to compare with the stuff you' ve purchased .
Here are a few reliable manufacturers : Crucial , Corsair , Kingston .
Here is a reliable address for purchasing on the net : www.upgradecomputermemory.com
Similar products vary in quality from one source to another and it often happends that low price products simply don't run in different machines .
Best regards ,
fanaudi .

Someone gave me a dell optiplex 240 pc they did not have the password i have tried removing the password jumper and also the battery and still it asks me for a pass word help


Make sure you remove the jumper with the power OFF (not connected)

Disabling a Forgotten Password
NOTICE: This process erases both the system and setup passwords.
1 Open the computer cover.
2 Remove the jumper plug from the PSWD jumper to disable the
password feature.
See "Jumper Settings" to locate the password jumper (labeled
"PSWD") on the system board.
3 Close the computer cover.
4 Reconnect your computer and devices to an electrical outlet, and then
turn them on.
This erases the existing password(s).
5 Enter system setup and verify that the password is disabled.
