Desktop PC's ususally have CMOS reset jumpers.
Laptops however, in my past experience, you need to remove/disconnect the backup battery.

I have a presario cq61 and have forgot my password can u help


Try starting the computer in safe mode. Turn on the computer and once the COMPAQ screen clears press F8 a few times - don't hold down the key however. Winodws stops loading at teh Startup Options screen (black, text only). From that menu use the cursor keys and ENTER to select "Safe Mode". Once Windows loads (it may look humungous!), login as the Administrator (which should now be visible). Use this account to reset your forgotten user password. Restart once complete - the computer will automatically start normally.

When I log on it says the user profile failed to upload. I can purposly put in an incorrect password and it says that is is incorrect, but with the correct password,it just says failed to upload.


It's exactly what it says - your user profile is corrupted. Login as admin, create a new user and move all your file to it. Login in the new user, make sure it's ok and all the files are there then rebbot, login again as admin and delete the old user.

Hello, I just bought a used CQ61-420US laptop off of Ebay and I would like to know how you reset the start-up login password


I assume you already have the password to access the machine. Go to the control panel, user accounts, change password (assuming Windows Vista) very similar in all windows Operating systems.

Compaq cq50 laptop has been stolen can it be blocked or traced


You are on shaky legal grounds, unless you have proof that it is your computer and have grounds to have a search for your personal information on that computer. That person could have also wiped the computer clean and reinstalled the Windows operating system.
I suggest you monitor your financial affairs closely to see if there are any unauthorized access to your accounts and credit cards, then you will have grounds for fraud investigation.
I think you should have a talk with a solicitor, this could be the least cost in the long run, especially if you have banking details on your computer.

When you get a new computer or your one back, you can protect the information on your computer and hard disk by placing a Power on Password on the laptop and a Password on the hard disk.
This will prevent unauthorized access to the laptop and hard disk. Even if the hard disk is removed and placed into another laptop, the data is locked and cannot be retrieved without the password.
These password should be recorded and placed in a safe place because if forgotten there are no backdoor passwords available.

Best of luck, I hope thinks turn out OK for you.
