It's is possible the CMOS battery is bad. If you added any additional parts to the computer, Hard drive, video card ect.. the current power supply may not have enough watts to handle the extra load. My personal experience this issue was two. First, there was a problem with my Windows XP system and the second time it was a bad power supply. First make sure you are grounded and check inside the computer case for loose connections. If your not sure if you have enough power from you power supply to handle the PC components click this link " Cooler Master Power Supply Calculator". If you are not getting any windows error messagess or error codes I would look to the power suppliy first. Hope this helps you.

I forgot my password to my laptop and trying to reset it

The following solution has to be performed on another computer

The first step you have to take in this scenario is to go on the internet and download Error Rescue Disk (ERD) Commander image (.ISO or .NRG) from the Microsoft Website called. Since you are using Windows 7 make sure you download ERD for Windows 7.
Secondly you have to write/ burn that image onto a disk using Nero. When you are done, Put the disk in your laptop and restart it. ERD will automatically launch itself into the system. If it does not start, restart the computer while pressing DEL or F2 to go into the BIOS setup. In the BIOS setup, under Boot Order/ Boot sequence, configure the CD-ROM to be the 1st booting device.
Afterwards, when ERD finishes launching, go to start, then Administrative Tools, then "LOCKSMITH), you will be prompted to create a new password that will eventually overwrite the forgotten one. Restart the laptop and use the newly created password to gain access.
Then if you do not want to use a password anymore, go to control panel, User Accounts and disable the password on your Account.
I hope that will get you out of your trouble

How do i reset my laptops cmos battery i have a dell inspirion 5100

The Basic Input Output System (BIOS) on a Dell laptop is used to help hardware communicate with the operating system. You can change many different aspects of your Dell laptop's BIOS such as boot order, BIOS time, set a system password, and change certain aspects of how your hardware works. If you want to reset your Dell laptop BIOS to its original settings, you can do so by changing only one setting. This setting restores your BIOS to its default settings, no matter what settings you may have changed.
1. Restart your Dell laptop. Click on "Start," "Turn off Computer" and "Restart." 2. Press "F2" during the boot process to enter the BIOS. Press "F2" before the Windows loading screen. Certain models may use a different key. The key will be displayed during the boot process. For most Dell models, the key is "F2." 3. Use the "Alt" + "F" key combination to load defaults. 4. Press "Esc" on your Dell laptop keyboard to save and exit. 5. Choose the "Enter" key to save all changes and exit the BIOS screen. Allow your laptop to restart for BIOS settings to reset.
I hope that these steps help you.

Toshiba satellite a135-s4656 reset bios


Even though I suspect that your system restarting

itself is not only caused by a BIOS error, but I will

still tell you how to reset your system BIOS:

If you don't know the system password for your

System, forgotten it, or its not accepting it again,

then you might have to reset your CMOS (BIOS).

Which means you will have to unscrew your system,

remove all cables supplying power to the board,

locate the CMOS battery(a small battery plugged

into a socket there) and remove it for a few

seconds, then replace it and screw your system


This will reset your system's CMOS back to its

Factory default settings.

(If you cant unscrew your PC yourself, you can just get a good technician to do it for you instead.)

Hope it helps.

Acer Travelmate 5530 BIOS password reset needed

Ran into same problem with 5530 Travelmate and found the Gap terminal by process of elimination is G69. It is located about 1/2 inch to the top right of Ground#8 about 3 inches below the sync fan. It is not well marked (G69 notation is well to the left), but is distinct in that it is 2 triangular orange terminals. I had to scratch the surface a bit and it took 2 or 3 tries to get it, but it finally worked. PC will power right back down when you get it right, next time you restart password is cleared. F2 from post verified no password existed anymore.
