Http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T%20Series&model=T3522 Chat with a tech. I think a system password has been set by someone. Most probably a bios / HDD password. So you need to know that to boot. Bios reset may do the trick (by removing cmos battery). But you have to set the settings back to normal in BIOS. But if you have encrypted data you may harm them. (Rarely).

Hi! The message that you are seeing whenever you boot up the machine might be the bios or harddrive password. If there is another user of the machine try to ask if they put in any bios/hdd password if not then you have to contact the manufacturer to have the password removed. There might be a possibility that if they cannot remove the password they might need to replace the motherboard or harddrive.Hope this helps...

Ask for password to unlock system


Just hit the set up key as your machine boots up, usually, F2-F3 or F8.

Go to safe mode using the up-down arrows and where it says set/change password, simply hit the enter button, enter a new password in and close, using the save function.

You can now use that new password and are now officially the administrator!

Or else, you need some Windows password reset program to help you do that job.

Key board not working


It's a hardware issue,
Maybe RAM or hard drive..

Did you get it used? If so the password was set b4 you purchase it, and will not show up when you type,,,It stays hidden.

Your getting this screen because there is a hardware failure. Fix the problem and you wont need the BIOS password.

Press<esc> to enable startup message, This should give you more info on the problem.

My notebook pc is locked up and will not unlock with my password and how much does this costs


Hopefully you have more than one account with administrative privileges on your computer. Then this should help:

Turn your computer on, and press F8 until you see the startup menu. Use the up/down arrows to select Safe Mode, and hit enter. Press enter again on Windows (whatever your operating system is).

1. Click Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools.
2. Click Computer Management.
3. Double click Local Users and Groups, double click the folder Users.
4. Right click on the account name that is locked out, and click on Set Password.
5. You may get a warning message about changing the password, simply click proceed.
6. Leave the New Password box blank, also leave the Confirm Password box blank.
7. Click OK, and OK again.
8. Then close all Windows, reboot the system and try to log in.
