Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook
My clock on the Compaq Presarlio700 has gone crazy.
Posted on Oct 11, 2008
Not sure if this will help as my previous experience is that the clock starts at 12:00 each time it is started up.
In my case it was a flat computer battery that keeps the BIOS active when shut down, hence it was losing all it's settings each time it was shut down.
Note: This does not explain the looping, so this answer may be one "just to try" if no other answers come up.

If you are talking about the password that is just ask when the comp starts....You can try this...
password prevents use of the computer until the password is entered. The
setup password prevents unauthorized changes to Computer Setup. To clear the
passwords, you must remove all power from the system board. If you do not know the
passwords, use the following procedure to clear the password:
1. Remove all battery packs.
2. Disconnect the AC power.
3. Remove the real-time clock battery.
4. Wait thirty minutes.
5. Reconnect the AC power. DO NOT INSTALL THE BATTERY!
6. Restart the computer. During Power-On Self Test (POST), a â 162 System Options
not setâ message appears.
7. Shut down the computer, then disconnect AC power again.
8. Replace the real-time clock battery.
9. Install the battery pack(s).
10. Reconnect the AC power.
11. Start the computer.
