Only way to do this is to pull the main battery out and the little cell battery off of the motherboard. In order to get to the motherboard battery, you have to disassemble the computer a bit. I would suggest searching online to find a manual on how to do so if you are unfarmiliar with it. Good luck!

Top 4 Options to Reset Windows Password


Forgot Windows password? Don't feel frustrated or annoyed. Windows has some handy features that allow you to recover or <a href="http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com/reset-windows-password.html">reset Windows password</a> on your own, for whatever reason you cannot gain access to your user account. Below are listed 4 of them. These <a href="http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com/reset-windows-password.html">Windows password reset</a> methods will work in all versions of Windows like Windows 7, Vista and XP.<br /><br />Option 1: Windows Password Hint<br /><br />Whenever you create or change Windows password, there will be an opportunity to type a password hint to help you remember the password. When you enter a wrong password in the Windows logon screen, the password hint will be displayed to remind you of how you made up your password (if you have created one). This is the easiest method to recover a lost password in Windows as far as I know. To in case that others will take advantage of the password hint, please note it should be vague enough so that nobody else can guess your password, but clear enough that it will remind you of your password.<br /><br />Option 2: Windows Password Reset Disk<br /><br />This is an easy and effective method but you must have created a Windows password reset disk first, before you <a href="http://www.windowsloginrecovery.com">lost Windows password</a>. But please note that the password reset disk will only work for the account it was created for and cannot be used to reset the password of another account.<br /><br />To create a password reset disk, you firstly need to log on Windows and enter User Accounts by clicking Start button, Control Panel, User and Family Safety, and User Accounts. Then you can click Create a password reset disk on the left pane (Just as shown on the below picture). A password reset disk wizard will come up, and then you can follow it to create a password reset disk.<br /><br />If you forgot Windows password, boot your computer to enter Windows logon screen. You'll get the reset password option when you type an incorrect password at the logon screen and press Enter. Click on the option and the password reset wizard will pop up to guide you to reset Windows password.<br /><br />Option 3: System Recovery Options<br /><br />Apart from Create a password reset disk, the System Recovery Options can also help you when you need to reset Windows password. You can either use a Windows installation disc or the recovery options provided by your computer manufacturer to access the System Recovery Options. Of course, you can also create a system repair disc by yourself.<br /><br />1. Type system repair disc into the search box in the Start menu and press Enter.<br /><br />2. Insert a CD/DVD into the optical drive and hit Create disc.<br /><br />This creates the system repair disc. To start the System Recovery Options, insert the system repair disc into the optical drive and reboot the PC via the disc. Select your Windows installation from the list when prompted. The System Recovery Options are now displayed.<br /><br />Option 4: Windows Password Reset Software<br /><br />Considering that many users never create a password reset disk or system repair disc, here we list option 4 - Windows Password Reset Software. The big advantage of this option is that you can reset the password easily in 5 minutes, without doing anything to in case of a lost password, like creating a disk. And it can help you reset Windows password whether you can log on your PC or not. There is plenty of such software on the Internet. Here we suggest Windows Login Recovery.<br /><br />1. Download and Install Windows Login Recovery in any accessible computer.<br /><br />2. Create a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive with the software.<br /><br />3. Set CD-ROM or USB device as the first boot device in BIOS for your PC.<br /><br />4. Boot your PC from the created CD/DVD or USB flash drive and reset Windows password.

Bios wont boot


Your BIOS is more than likely locked by an admin password or the options are locked upon startup. The best way to go around that is once you see the HP screen popup after restart, keep hitting F12 and the boot menu will pop up gving you access to the boot menu and then to the BIOS. If you have a password setup on the BIOS you will need it for any BIOS changes you make to take effect.

My HP s123w Slimline Pavilion will not start up. Every time I turn it on, it goes to a black screen stating "DISC BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISC AND PRESS ENTER" and I do not have the system disc. Any...


Take the floppy disk out of the drive... this sounds like the classic error when the boot order includes the floppy disk first, and a blank or data (not bootable) floppy diskette gets left in the drive.

There could be another type of drive set as bootable. CD's and DVD's don't normally do this - they usually cause a prompt "press any key to boot from CD..." or similar.

You could go in the computer setup and set the hard disc drive to be the 1st in the boot order and also solve this problem.

Otherwise could be your C: drive got damaged somehow. Virus or otherwise.

Previous user apparently password protected Windows.


Well first off you can use the restore feature and it will only reinstall crucial windows files it won't mess with software that was already installed.

There are password recovery programs out there you would have to search for one and install the program onto a disc and boot of it (just follow the instructions)

Wont boot past message "HDD CD Rom/DVD Floppy Disc Lan Boot" Blue box, on grey background. Keeps highlighting Floppy...


Right... either your hard disk is dead to the point that your PC can't "see" it anymore, or someone has been playing around with your settings.

Restart, go into the BIOS... it's either the DEL key, or F1 or F2.. it'll say something about it briefly. (different on different PC's)

Look for a boot order somewhere in the BIOS, and check that the hard disk is one of the choices. Also just check around to see if the hard disk is even detected in the first place. There are so many different BIOS's and PC's that I could give you 20 guesses as to where to look... so be patient have have a look around. (with the arrow keys on the keyboard. enter to enter, escape to escape)

If the disk is dead, that's why it's giving you other options. If not, you can set it how it should be... but if noone has touched the PC, i'd guess that the drive *is* dead.

The latter requires a new hard disk, and some kind of installation discs to start over from scratch.
