When you turn your laptop on, watch the messages that flash at the top and bottom of the screen. There should be a message that says 'press F# (where # is a number between 1 and 12) to enter setup'. You only have a couple seconds to press this F key in order to enter setup, so do it quickly.

Good Luck!

I have an hp compaq 6910p lap top which a friend has password it in the setup and i am finding it difficult to use it. what should i do to clear the password in the setup. eric


You can try to open your computer and disconnect the cmos battery for 10 minutes. this is a small battery that keep the changes saved. When you disconnect it, All changes will be lost. So also the password. This is the sequence:

1: take off the accu
2: open up the laptop
3: take the cmos (small flat round battery) out
4: Wait 10 minutes
5: plug in you adapter and boot the laptop
6: when you see that the password is gone, power off the laptop
7: plug everything back in.
8: You are done! :)

C mos replacement


You can replace the cmos memory battery, but replacing the cmos on a laptop will in most cases require soldering the chip off from the mainboard.

I think you are confused as to what you actually want to do or need to do.

Want unlock code


Best would be remove the CMOS battery.

If you are comfortable with DIY then you can take the steps from this web site

http://vsslfpro.zcce.compaq.com/plmcontent/NACSC/SML/results.htm?SID=96403&MEID=E613C967-5DBF-40D6-AAAD-8E716BDE262C

The cmos battery is located on the top right hand corner next to the cooling fan and can be accessed after you have removed the led plate, keyboard, cooling pate.

If you are not comfortable doing it your self then better take it to a computer shop and ask them to fix it for yor.

As always I am not responsible if something happens to you lap top if you follow the instructions given above.

Cmos bios setup utility


Hi, On some Compaq models, entry to CMOS/BIOS setup requires pressing F10 as soon as the cursor (white box) appears in the upper right hand corner of the screen (The cursor is displayed on the screen for about two seconds. If you do not press F10 during this time, you must restart the computer and try again.); Alternately on some other models, it is at boot when you see the "Compaq" log in big letters. hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
