    The Power On password has been enabled on this notebook. But, no one knows the password. So, the notebook will not bootup until the password is entered at the Power On prompt. How do I disable this Power On password? Where is the RTC battery located on this notebook? How can I get to this RTC battery?

Lock ibm bios 0271 error

You need a replacement battery for the CMOS system on your computer.

The CMOS system contains the BIOS settings configuration and also runs the real time clock. If the real time clock does not stay in sync, this can have a negative affect on your installed operating system ( for example, a windows computer will not allow ANY system updates if the difference between your system time date, and the update servers current time and date is offset for 24 hrs. or more)

Please i want a mobile graphic adapter for games on my hp compaq nx 9030 window 7

No such thing. The performance would be awful via the USB 2 port. Compared to a PCI-X card.

Every time i boot up my brand new dell vostro i get an error: 00c08270 real time clock error - check time and date settings. I have been continuously updating the time and date but the error message keeps...

Meaning the RTC battery needs to be replaced.

The Real Time Clock battery is the CMOS battery.

Coin-Cell Battery

The laptop has to be completely disassembled down to the motherboard (System Board) in your hand.
On the bottom of the motherboard is the RTC Battery.

Since the laptop is brand new this falls on the place where you purchased it, or Dell.
It is still under warranty as far as replacing the RTC Battery. (It came with a bad battery. They need to replace it, not you)

Pls i have a hp compaq nx 9030 when i press the power butten the blue I/O light blinks but the system does not on what do i do or what is the problem

I suggest to try removing the battery and get it back and start again ..If it crashed and turned off it may need to be disconnected from all power before starting again ..Or the battery may be in short and conflict with the ac ..try to boot up with the ac power alone ..
The blue light is not usually a fault ....when the board is damaged the light is usually amber..

If the date and clock is not keeping your settings to blame is the bios battery ..and need to be changed..The battery is usually on he main board just under the keyboard..and the wireless card ..and can be accessed from the front if you remove the hinges cover..than all the screws of the keyboard ..slide the keyboard toward the display for an inch and lift it ..Unplug it from the ribbon ..and you will have the wireless card exposed..You have to remove this card also and you will see the battery ..
it is possible to not be able to remove it ..and have to open it in half to get to the motherboard do that you have to remove all from it ..including disk drive ..battery and hard disk ...and all teh screws for to open it in half ..
or ..for most compaq model the battery is accessible from the back ..
take a look on these videos ..
here are 3 different situations ..try to see if your model have access from the back to the battery ..if not have to strip the front and see if there is access under the keyboard..

Hp nx 6110 a power-on-password

Hi, try this:
- unplug from mains
- remove laptop battery
- remove real-time clock (CMOS) battery.
- wait 5 minutes
- replace the RTC battery and then
plug in - without the laptop battery.
The laptop battery cannot be present
when you remove the RTC battery
and shouldn't be there when you power on.
