Hello,

If you know how to open a laptop and access the board you only need to disconnect the battery power connector from the board and leave it off for a minute or so.

Laptop batteries that keep the bios powered and retain the time/date and of course passowrds look different than a tower pc. They are usually a long round cigar shapped unit about 2-3 inches long with a power wire set and a connector that goes to your board. Naturally, the look and shape does vary a lot and so don't expect yours to look exactly as I described.

When you reconnect it and put the keyboard, etc.back on power up and enter Setup. You will need to reset the time and date and configuration options that suit your needs.

Hope this fixed ya!

Facing Problem with compac v3000 no display


First see if any monitor will work, plugged in at back? If works, check, just isn't been LCD monitor has been disabled by a key command, then if NOT work, it is probably Video card. OR actual LCD, OR the LCD power supply and/or Inverter? may also be bad connection to MB? Or Broken ribbon in lid, or case. Faulty sleep open/close LCD switch? Try those.

Presario v3000


Hi Jan, you can try removing the RTC battery for 5 minutes and see if that clears the password.

You can do this by turning the laptop upsidedown with the hinges away from you. Next remove the main battery and unplug your laptop from the wall.

Now you'll need to remove the hard drive access panel its a large rectangular panel located near the bottom right corner of the laptop. Once the panel is removed you'll see your hard drive and to the left of the hard drive you should see the battery it will have two wires coming off and going into a plug on the board. Unplug the battery from the board and wait 5 mins, then plug it back in.

Your password should now be cleared.

Presario v3000


one way is bypassing. which can be done at chip level servicing only.

else there is a option like we can use any tool like ERD.. but we cant assure that u will get solved by that method.

only sure shot method is chip level servicing.

so u should take it to company(if with in warranty) else take it to some local service centers.
