Computer would not booy up. now it does but the password does not work


which operating system ant what type of computer??
Restart your computer

When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there
also
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

also
how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased
or if using XP
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer Advanced Boot Options screen appears. Select the Safe Mode option using the up and down arrow keys, then press the ENTER key. Choose "Windows XP Home/Professional", depending on the version of the operating system. Press ENTER. Shortly, the welcome screen should show.
Log in as "Administrator". Click Yes to not use System Restore Mode.
Click the Start button. Choose Run and type in "control userpasswords" (without the quotes). Click OK.

Select the "Administrator" user. Click Change my password. Enter a new password in the corresponding text boxes. Click OK. Write this password down and store it in a secure place Close the User Accounts window and restart Windows.

hope this helps you

My Compaq sr1800nx desktop boots to a black screen with white text with the options of F1 setup or F2 continue instead of the normal boot up. If I select F2 it will continue and boot up normally.


Sounds like you have to open task manager. probably threw ctrl+del keys together. then once the task manager is open you have the option of typing explorer.exe

once the windows desktop apears go to start then run and type chkdsk c: /R this will recover bad files that are possibly missing from the boot volume. the issue happens when software tries to alter the master boot record where windows load's the operating files off of the main drive root partition. hope this helps you.
Good Luck

Right off the bat when I power up my HP Intel Pentum 4 3.2 mhz processor (with Hyper Threading and XP OS SP3 and the LCD monitor and an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 with up to 128MB shared...


Reboot the machine and when you see the HP flash screen, tap the key that gets you into the setup or BIOS screen. This could be F2 or the escape key, just watch for it. Once you get into the BIOS pages, go to the last page and look for the text "Reset Default Settings" or something to that effect. Click to reset defaults and answer yes if it asks if you are sure, then tap on the F10 key and click yes to exit and reboot. Restart Windows normally.....if there is still a problem, reboot and tap the F8 key when you see the HP screen. Choose "Safe Mode with Networking", this will load safe mode and minimal settings and drivers but will give you internet access to get help for resetting safe mode through the control panel.

Using a HP L1506 Monitor on a HP Pavilions a 867c computer and has worked, but now receiving "VGA input: no input signal" with window on monitor, followed by "Monitor going to Sleep" and it does. Worked...


First of all, boot your system without the monitor connected to it and when you feel that it's booted upto logon screen (or if you haven't assign password it'll directly logon to the desktop, power on the speaker to make sure you can know it's done) connect the monitor. If this isn't successful, please turn off the system and remove the cmos battery, leave it outside for few minutes and again reinstall it. Boot again normally. Still having the same problem? then let's try another method. Did you see the bios loading (black screen with white text during startup) when you power on the system? If so, press F8 several times while it is booting and select "Safe Mode" and restore your system to previous state. Do let me know if this isn't possible. Good luck Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a Satellite Pro A120. The screen has gone red at startup and colours are all wrong now.


Try booting to BIOS. If you have the same problem, LCD is already defective. If the color in BIOS is normal, it means you only need to reinstall Windows. To go to BIOS: Turn off computer. Press and hold F2 then press power button. When it starts, you should see the Advanced Setup screen. The screen is color blue with yellow or white texts.

Computer loading/splash screen pixilated and distorted


if you can, hook the computer up to a different monitor and see if it does the same thing. It sounds like it is an issue with your monitor initalizing but the reboot can complicate things. Also if you have a cd that came with the computer you might want to put it in and see if you can re-install your video drivers. One last thing is to check and see if the reboot might have changed some of the settings on the monitor itself. See if you can reset to factory default or an auto adjust. It depends on the kind of monitor as to wich option you can do

Can't get pass the background screen when pc load


The sequence is:
a) The Dell bios splash screen is displayed,
b) the screen will go black,
c) the disk activity light will flash for about 5 - 7 seconds, then will remain off.
d) you force a power off,
e) wait a few seconds,
f) then turn the machine back on.
g) The bios splash screen is displayed,
h) then a black screen with white text is displayed, reporting that Windows was not shut down nicely and would I like to boot into safe mode or safe mode with networking, or others.
g1) If you choose Safe Mode, Windows will boot up successfully. If I restart, the computer will usually (probably) boot into Windows fine.
g2) If you choose Boot Normally, the computer will usually (probably) enter the black and hung state.
see if that helps and the if possible do a do a system restore to when the system was working correctly.

MONITOR WONT DISPLAY


Hello,
Yes. Disconnect your monitor from the computer and turn it back on. If it self test and then displays a "No Signal Present" message your monitor is probably okay. I underscore 'probably' as it may fail when under a startup load wherein the display adapter is receiving a heavy load from the motherboard as the display is the first device to be loaded by the bios. Still, keep this in mind, the OS will still boot without the monitor attached and there are no error beep codes for monitor failure or unattached.

If you have heard the normal activity from your computer as it boots up while you experienced this situation with your monitor the computer is okay. If you havent' heard the normal activity and have heard some beeps, usually one long four short, your display adapter is loose in its slot or has failed. But, normally you would receive a "No Signal Present" message on screen... but not always. See, there are many variables at work here.

The final word is that your monitor has failed or will completely fail soon. Since it is a Dell and you may still be under warranty persue a replacement (refurbished most likely) from Dell. Be patient as Dell will want to take you through a monotonous troubleshooting routine to assure themselves you aren't mistaken and the problem is real. So, don't sweat it out, just wait them out. Usually with monitor replacements you get a better model than you had.

your monitor is telling you it's on it's last legs..either that or your compaq has a bad video section. either is more vital than a video cable being loose.
