    My HP pavilion notebook TX 1000 is just over a year old. Barely used it for word processing and email and here is what it displays upon turning it on:

    A disk read erroe occurred

    Press CTRL + Alt+Del to restart

    which if done takes you back to the same message.

    If i hit F10 I get the phoenixbios tabs which give you only info. If I run a diagnostic test after 10 seconds it reads:

    # 1-07 fail

    Can anybody help me??

    I should never have bought Vista. -Didn't want it but it was all that was available.

What's your problem?a way to turn the SATA ports to ON in the BIOS

You can go into the bios and on those drives that are not found you can turn them OFF or N/A. They are probably set to AUTO or ON.

If that does not work I would say remove the power cord, remove the cover, then remove the main power to the motherboard then plug the main power to the motherboard back it. The main power will run from the power supply and the end of it will be about a 2 inch strip that plugs into the board. Press and hold the little catch on it then pull it out of the socket on the board. Put it back in firmly. Reboot and see what happens.

Unable to Acces BIOS on IBM Netvista 607931u w/ Phoenix ROM BIOS

When the IBM Setup Utility program prompt is displayed, quickly press F1.
The prompt is displayed for only a short time.
if you dont see the prompt, tap F1 repeatedly as the computer starts. If it says "starting windows" you've let it go too far and will have to restart again and repeat the process to get into the bios

Somehow, somebody has manually placed admin password for your bios. Thats the only way it can be done. Try this

Introduction to BIOS Passwords The best method to reset a BIOS password depends on what BIOS the computer has. Common BIOS's include AMI, Award, IBM and Phoenix. Numerous other BIOS's do exist, but these are the most common.
if (!window.netshel_ord) { netshel_ord=Math.random()*10000000000000000; } if (!window.netshel_tile) { netshel_tile=1; } document.write(''); netshel_tile++;
Some BIOS's allow you to require a password be entered before the system will boot. Some BIOS's allow you to require a password to be entered before the BIOS setup may be accessed.
The general categories of solutions to reset a BIOS password are:
  • Using a Backdoor BIOS Password
  • Resetting the BIOS Password using Software
  • Resetting the BIOS Password using Hardware
  • Vendor Specific Solutions for resetting the BIOS Password
Using a Backdoor BIOS Password Some BIOS manufacturers implement a backdoor password. The backdoor password is a BIOS password that works, no matter what the user sets the BIOS password to. These passwords are typically used for testing and maintenance. Manufacturers typically change the backdoor BIOS passwords from time to time.
AMI Backdoor BIOS Passwords Reported AMI backdoor BIOS passwords include A.M.I., AAAMMMIII, AMI?SW , AMI_SW, BIOS, CONDO, HEWITT RAND, LKWPETER, MI, and PASSWORD.
Award Backdoor BIOS Passwords One reported Award backdoor BIOS password is eight spaces. Other reported Award backdoor BIOS passwords include 01322222, 589589, 589721, 595595, 598598 , ALFAROME, ALLY, ALLy, aLLY, aLLy, aPAf, award, AWARD PW, AWARD SW, AWARD?SW, AWARD_PW, AWARD_SW, AWKWARD, awkward, BIOSTAR, CONCAT, CONDO, Condo, condo, d8on, djonet, HLT, J256, J262, j262, j322, j332, J64, KDD, LKWPETER, Lkwpeter, PINT, pint, SER, SKY_FOX, SYXZ, syxz, TTPTHA, ZAAAADA, ZAAADA, ZBAAACA, and ZJAAADC.
Phoenix Backdoor BIOS Passwords Reported Phoenix BIOS backdoor passwords include BIOS, CMOS, phoenix, and PHOENIX.
Backdoor BIOS Passwords from Other Manufacturers Reported BIOS backdoor passwords for other manufacturers include:
Manufacturer BIOS Password VOBIS & IBM merlin Dell Dell Biostar Biostar Compaq Compaq Enox xo11nE Epox central Freetech Posterie IWill iwill Jetway spooml Packard Bell bell9 QDI QDI Siemens SKY_FOX SOYO SY_MB TMC BIGO Toshiba Toshiba Remember that what you see listed may not be the actual backdoor BIOS password, this BIOS password may simply have the same checksum as the real backdoor BIOS password. For Award BIOS, this checksum is stored at F000:EC60.

The BIOS password can be reset on any system. Some systems are easy, others are more difficult. Any BIOS password can be reset with sufficient time, money and effort.

Let's try to get into BIOS Setup Utility,(some just call it BIOS, but you can't change your BIOS program, only some settings). AS SOON as you push the power button on, press F1. This should take you to a blue & red screen that's reminiscent of DOS. No? Okay restart computer,(CTRL+ALT+Delete keys at same time), and press Delete. Each manufacturer has it's own setting made for them by the BIOS manufacturer,(Award, AMI, Phoenix, etc.) Might be F2,F10. To further explain this, let me direct you to this page at When you get into BIOS Setup, look across the top headings for Password Option. I'm willing to bet a computer, of this age's BIOS program, has it there. If not, use the Up/Down arrow key/s to 'highlight' Standard BIOS Setup,(or CMOS Setup), and look, Advanced BIOS Setup, and on through the submenu's. It sounds complicated to explain, but it's not. Read the 'navigation' panel at the bottom to move around. You won't affect anything if you don't press Enter, and Save It to CMOS, so don't fret. When you find the Password Option, use your Up/Down key/s to highlight it, press Enter. This will take you into a submenu for it. It will say Yes/No, or ON/OFF. Click on No, or OFF. Press the ESC key to go back to the main menu, then press the F10 key to Save to CMOS, anf press the y key,(shows a upper case Y, just use lower case). Your computer will restart, Windows will load back up, and the password thing will be gone!

Good Luck
