Not too sure what u mean .
are you talking about bios password or os(windows)password.
it sounds to me like bios password cos if windows not set you just enter.
in which case you can try enter setup(bios)at start and select default values then save and exit;if it allows you .if it doesnt get back to me and can send you software to fix this via email.

My Toshiba L350D asks me for a password


It's a CMOS password, you may have set this accidentally. Try pressing F2 on startup, if you can get in to the BIOS you can disable the password request. However, it is likely to still want a password to let you get in to the BIOS. The only remaining option will be to try resetting the CMOS by either finding the correct jumper on the motherboard or removing the CMOS battery.

My asus eee pc will not start windows. I've tried pressing F2 (and the bios screen comes up) F7, F8 and F9 ask me if I want to run system recovery, but when I say yes, it acts like it's about to...


Restart your computer..start tapping F8 quickly..if you reaches advance boot menu..there select repair my computer..then select the language..then enter your username and password if you use any..in recovery options you can try startup repair or system restore options..lastly if nothing works then select the factory image restore which will take your computer to factory settings but delete everything

I need administrator password for compaq nx6110


1.) Unplug AC, take out the main battery.

2.) Take out /disconnect the RTC (real time clock) battery for app. half an hour (the period of 5 min as specified in the MSG normally is not long enough).

3.) Plug in the AC adapter (batteries still removed); computer should boot automatically, if not use the power button.

4.) The machine will boot and show the 162-error-msg "system options not set". Use F1 to save the settings.

5.) Shut down the computer and disconnect AC power again.
6.) Re-connect the RTC-battery.
7.) Install the battery pack(s).
8.) Restart the computer.

I have a password problem on my laptop,but not window password it board password please help my out.


If you are talking about the password that is just ask when the comp starts....You can try this...



The power-on 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.

When i am start my hp pavilion this shows Bootmgr is missing alt+cntr+del to restart again it same cycle


1. Error: BOOTMGR is missing:

The following error opens when attempting to start the PC:


??¢ If you recently installed an additional hard drive, turn off the computer and remove the drive before using the following steps:

??¢ Open HP System Recovery:

??¢ CAUTION: Do not perform a system recovery! Stop at the first recovery screen.

- Press the F11 key repeatedly while the computer is starting.

- If you have a recovery disc, turn on the PC and insert the first recovery disc into the drive. Use the disc to enter the system recovery.

??¢ Select Microsoft Startup Repair tool and wait for repair to find and fix errors. When finished, restart the computer; even if the startup repair tool finds errors but cannot fix them.

??¢ If the error message persists, open the recovery manager screen as was done in step 1.

??¢ At the recovery manager screen, press ALT + D.

??¢ Enter the following text at the command prompt: bootrec /rebuildbcd

??¢ If bootrec displays "Add installation to boot list?", press y .

??¢ After bootrec completes successfully, the computer displays "The operation completed successfully".

??¢ To close the command prompt, enter the following text: exit

??¢ At the Recovery Manager screen, select Microsoft Startup Repair tool (again) and wait for startup repair to find and fix errors. When finished, restart the computer.

??¢ The error should no longer open. If it does, perform a system recovery, making sure to backup important files.

??¢ If you removed a hard drive before using these steps, replace the drive. If the error occurs again, make sure the additional hard drive is not set as an active drive. Only the main bootable drive should be set as active.

Computer has been working fine. Now all of a


Hi,
When system boots press the key to get into BIOS. Usually it is 'Del' Key. Once you get into BIOS, if not asking a password, get into admin menu and set the password option disabled.
If asking for a password while you get in to BIOS and you dont know the password, the only option is to reset the BIOS.
To reset BIOS u've to remove the back cover and remove and re-insert the CMOS battery while the laptop is powered off. After that, power on the laptop and set the bios to normal setting, especially the time. This wont harm any of your data.
Please come back and vote for me if this finds helpful for you. Thnx

My laptop compaq armada1700 ask me power-on password what can i do?


Follow the instructions of the service manual for the Armada 1700 (you need to have some skills):

2.2 Clearing Passwords
The power-on 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 from the battery bay and MultiBay, if applicable.
2. Disconnect the AC power.
3. Remove the real-time clock battery.
4. Wait five minutes.
5. Reconnect the AC power.
6. Restart the computer. During Power-On Self Test (POST, a "162 System Options not set" 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.Proceed with the troubleshooting procedures.

Point 10 means you need to do the setup via disquette to set the date and time again, to avoid the "162 system option not set" message of the POST.
