I have a dell 3000 dimension desk top computer. The message I get after tapping the F12 key is as follows. Key board failure. Type password and press enter to leave password security enabled next line


The motherboard BIOS is activated when you press the F12 Key and can be locked via a password that is different from your pc user account. There is only one way to reset this because the BIOS is a chip on the motherboard. You have to reset the password using a jumper on the motherboard that is marked with PSWD. This will also clear the CMOS which is Computer Memory on Startup which tells the computer the different changes from the original bios chip. so you may have to go in and set some settings in the bios to have everything back to operational.

Turn off and unplug the tower before opening it.

The password jumper's location on a Dell Dimension motherboard can be found by reviewing the Dimension User Guides.
For most Dell Dimension desktops, the steps to reset a BIOS password and clear all CMOS settings are:
  • Locate the 3-pin CMOS password reset jumper on the system board.
  • Remove the jumper plug from pins 1 and 2.
  • Place the jumper plug on pins 2 and 3 and wait approximately 5 seconds.
  • Replace the jumper plug on pins 1 and 2.
Now replace the panel and plug unit back in. You should be able to enter the bios without a password.

Do not have login password or reset disc


Turn off the computer and unplug it. Allow the power to discharge.
Open the tower and look on the mother board. you should see a large watch battery. remove it for at least a minute to 5 minutes then replace it. close the tower and power back up. this should remove the password.

Key board is locked welcome screen is on but am unable to enter password cant shut down computer due to important files any idea how to fix this without powering down computer Keyboard Dell RT7D20


Try unplugging and replugging keyboard. If that doesn't work, save your files to a flash drive or external hard drive, then go to:
  1. Start
  2. Control Panal
  3. System and Security
  4. System - Device Manager
When the Device Manager comes up, look for "Keyboards" Click on the little arrow to the left of it. If there is a problem, you will see red or yellow markings.
Right click on the keyboard listed and reset it.

Getting past a password of a used computer


Hi there :
you have a couple of options 1. have you tried the esc key . and if this does not work you will have to turn off the computer and remove the power cord and open the case after this is done look on the motherboard for a jumper that is usually black or blue it it covers 2 pins at a time it should be sitting on a single row of 3 pins with one of the pins uncovered if you look closly on the board it will say cmos setup on the board simply pull the jumper off the pins and slide it to cover the pin that was uncovered plus one more now power up the computer and you will come to the setup screen and you will see the section that says passwords click on it and it will ask you if you want to clear all passwords and say yes than save and exit now it will tell yo that you must return the jumper to the original position that it was in so simply turn off the computer and return the jumper to the original position and reboot now when the password screen comes up just press the esc key and the computer will go into windows so you can get to the user section and remove the previous user and put own user name and password in ok hope this helps best regards mike
