HP Compaq Evo 1005v Bios problem

Please please help me if you can! I'm quite an amateur when it comes to laptop/computers, and I was having problems with the dreaded "Blue Screen of death" and was experimenting (Bad Idea!) The laptop was also giving me error messages, shutting down itself, and sometimes not booting into Xp pro at all. So, I went on to HP website, found a flash bios update, and preceded to download. After it had downloaded, It asked me to restart my computer. However, after restart all that was displaying was the Red Compaq logo! I can't get into Bios as the F10 and space option has disappeared completely. Does anyone know how I can get into my bios? I don't even know if the cdrom is operating, although it's spinning with media in it. However, I don't have a repair or backup disk to try in it. Thanks in advance.

Well, i could say you screwed your PC badly. now, what you can do is try this, remove the CD, remove the AC adapter, Remove the battery, and remove the bottom plates only from the laptop, and remove the CD drive. look for the CMOS battery which is in a yellow casing. once found, remove the two wires connected to the motherboard, wait about 10 seconds, plug the CMOS battery back in, put the plates back, then the CD drive, then the battery, then the AC adapter if needed and you should be good to go. If not, i suggest bring it to your local computer shop.

Give me password for compaq evo n600c


You can remove your bios password by reseting your CMOS battery or jamper. You need to open your notebook remove first the battery and all screw at the back of your notebook. You can see there a CMOS battery together with the CMOS jamper. Just read it you can read CLRSCR which means clear cmos, just pull it with in 10 seconds and insert it back. Now you are done to reset bios.
