Question about Compaq NC8000 Notebook

1 Answer

Compaq NC8000 this did not work as I could not found the CMOS reset jumper. But I have found the EPROM I think should be responsible of keeping the boot-up program and details: ATMEL350 24C64AN. If someone can help on how to reset this eprom I think this could solve my problem. Thanks for your help. Sylvin

How to remove bios password in hp nc8000 laptop


Did you try removing the CMOS Battery?

You'll have to remove the CMOS battery. Most laptopsrequire you to take the laptop apart to get to the CMOS Battery. It willbe a silver battery about the of a nickel on the motherboard. Themost common is CR2032. Also sometimes the battery will be in a vinylcovering and have a cable that attaches to a port on the motherboard. Whichever type you have you'll need to either remove the battery or unplug the cableand let the laptop sit for an hour or two. Then put it back, reassemblethe laptop and reboot the laptop. With the CMOS battery out the computerwill lose the date, time and password.If removing the cmos batter does not remove the password you'll have to go to the manufacturers website and look for the manuals. See if the manual references how to reset bios. Most likely you'll have to short the jumpers or pull a pin.

This information is intended for experienced users. It is not intended for basic users, hackers, or computer thieves. Please do not try any of following procedures if you are not familiar with computer hardware. I'll not be responsible for the use or misuse of this information, including personal injury, loss of data or hardware damage. So use it at your own risk.

A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:

In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.

Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.

When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.

Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.



B. By Using Software:


I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

How to remove bios password in laptop dell model no pp19s


BIOS passwordsare used to add some extra security to computers. You can either set a passwordto prevent access to BIOS settings or to prevent PC from booting. But sometimesthis extra security might become a pain when you forget the BIOS password orsomeone changes your system BIOS password intentionally. But there is noneed to worry. There are many known ways to reset / remove / bypass thepassword: · By removing CMOS battery · By using motherboard jumper · By using MS DOS command · By using software · By using Backdoor BIOS password Now I'll try to explain each methodone by one: By Removing CMOS Battery:
Almost allmotherboards use a small coin d CMOS battery to store all BIOS settingsalong with the password. To reset the password, unplug the PC, open the cabinetand remove the CMOS battery for approx. 15-30 minutes and thenput it back. It'll reset all BIOS settings as well as the password and you'llneed to re-enter all settings. If it fails,then try to remove the battery for at least one hour. By Using MotherboardJumper: Almost allmotherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with theBIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon themotherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check itslocation. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOSbattery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS,etc. When you findthe jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joiningthe center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove thejumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joinscenter pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Nowwait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pinto left pin. Make sure toturn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper. By UsingMS DOS Command: This methodworks only if you have access to the system when its turned on because thismethod requires MS DOS. Open Command Prompt from Programs menuand provide following commands one bye one: Debug o 70 2E o 71 FF quit NOTE:The first character in the above commands is English alphabet "o"and not the number 0. After providing the above commands, restart your systemand it should reset the CMOS Settings along with the BIOS password. If you arecurious to know how it works? then let me explain the above commands: In this method we are using theDebug tool of MS DOS. The "o" character present atfirst in these commands, outputs the values to IO ports. The number 70and 71 are port numbers which are used to access CMOS memory.By providing FF value we are telling CMOS that there is aninvalid checksum and it resets the CMOS settings as well as BIOS password. By UsingSoftware: There are a few software which canalso reset CMOS settings or BIOS password or both within a few clicks. But asstated above you should have access to a system which is turned on and shouldhave access to MS DOS or MS Windows: CmosPwd By Using Backdoor BIOSPassword: Some BIOSmanufacturer put a backdoor password in BIOS which always works irrespective ofwhat password you have set in BIOS. Its a master password which is used fortesting and troubleshooting purposes. AMI BIOS Passwords: A.M.I.

Power on password on Compaq NC8000


close to the CMOS battery there will be a BIOS jumper. This jumper usually is colored dif. from all the rest and is labeled commonly (but not always) "J4". The CMOS jumper usually is a 3 pin lead setup and normal operating mode most of the time is with the jumper on pin 1 & 2. If this jumper is on the first and second pin you are going to then move it to the second and third pins and let it sit for about 30 seconds (or place it on pins 1 & 2 if it originally resides on 2 & 3). Once you have done that you will then replace the jumper back as you found it and reconnect all your input/output devices. Power on your computer, boot into BIOS, and use auto detect for your hardware specs. Most of the time you wont have to touch anything setting wise in the BIOS (if its good firmware it detects everything by itself).
