Boot sequence / bios password issues with Acer Aspire 5100


Hoping you are using some version of windows OS. Go to safe mode... press the power button to boot and while booting keep pressing F8 which will allow you to go to safe mode and reboot the machine if you are able to sucessfully able to go to safe mode. Now boot to normal mode as usual boot. If you still notice BSOD(blue screen of death) then once more go to safe mode and uninstall the new softwares if you have installed any on your laptop recently like graphics device driver or audio driver so on.... if you are not sure of new softwares installed.. use system restore method in safe mode to restore the system to older date it should resolve your problem. system restore tool of windows will be in start-> program -> accesories-> system tools-> system restore.

You didn't say wheather the password was for the computer or Windows. 1. If the password is for the computer then you can change it in the BIOS by pressing F2 when the computer boots. This will take you into the BIOS. Here accros the top of the menu you should find a tab called security. Once opened you'll find where the password is entered or canncelled. 2. If it's in Windows you can reboot the computer with the Windows CD. You'l need to do an operating system reinstall. Once Windows asks if you want to install a new operating system continue from there. Two screens later Windows will ask if you want to reinstall the operating system to repair the present system. Reinstalling will delete all passwords.

Forgot password to log in to pc


Hi,
Please mention your problem clearly....
If its BIOS password (when system boots it will ask for password) then shutdown the system and remove the COMS battery for 2 minutes which is present in the one of the corner of the motherboard.
If its user password (asking the user name and password) then you need to install a fresh copy of windows xp. to install a windows xp, Insert the XP bootable cd into the CD-ROM. Restart the system. Then the system will boot from cd. If its not asking to boot from cd then you need to change the settings on BIOS menu. When system restarts keep-on pressing the DEL or F2 keys or both. then it will take you to BIOS setup. there change the boot priority. Select first boot device as CD/DVD ROM. After please click on the below link or copy the URL and paste it in your web browser. Follow the steps.

Laptop again lol


Is this a Windows password after the machine boots, or is this a bios or power on password before booting to the windows screen? If it's a Windows password, try running a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If it's a bios password get back to me and I'll send you a couple of links. In order to clear a bios password you'll need to Contact Dell support. The links will help only if it's a bios password. Let me know.

BIOS password


You should not need to access the bios to reinstall the operating system.
Put your disc in the drive (I will assume Windows) then reboot the computer.
When the disc has been checked, it will ask you to press any key to boot from CD.
After that follow the information as it appears on screen.

Before you do this though, it's a good idea to backup onto cd any data, photos emails etc you want to keep.

Hope that helps =)

HELP!!!! ---- HP Notebook (zx5060us) Asks for Bios Password Now...


Hi,
If the system boots to a windows screen, then asks for a password, it's definitely NOT a bios password, but a windows operating system password. Either way, if we had it here at the shop, I could have it done in a few minutes; to bad you're not in Tulsa.
What makes you think it's a bios password?
Good luck
