Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
Well, I'm not exactly sure what your computer is (i.e., manufacturer). If it is a desktop then there could be a simple fix.
1. Turn the computer off and unplug it from the wall outlet.
2. Open the side of the computer case and peer inside (usually 2 philips head screws on the back and on the left panel as the computer faces you. This has changed though on some of the REALLY new computers, but it'll be the side where you see all the computer guts. Not a blank steel plate.)
3. Look for a shiny, quarter sized button attached to the motherboard. Usually laying flat against the board, some are mounted perpindicular to the board, but you get the idea. This is call the CMOS battery and it keeps the BIOS charged and remembering your systems most basic operating configuration.
4. CAREFULLY, actually remove the shiny button from the plastic holder. You MUST REMEMBER if the flat side was up (facing you) or down before you remove it. The industry standard has been to have the flat side facing toward you, but as I mentioned with the motherboard orientation, industry seems to change at its whim.
5. After about 5 to 10 minutes, put the button back in its socket.
Hopefully, the CMOS will have been completely erased and the password with it, returning the system back to a default operating position.
THIS IS NOT COMPLETELY FOOL PROOF!!!
Some motherboards have been programmed with an EPROM that will actually hold the password indefinitely. Without looking at your particular motherboard I couldn't begin to tell you where that bypass/reset function would reside, thus making your computer a candidate for a computer geeky neighbor/friend or lastly a trip to the local computer tech.
However, if all went well, after you put the battery back in its slot (leave the side off till we know that the following actually happened), plug the computer back into the wall outlet, then fire it back up. Give the computer a few moments as it will have to completely go through its hardware and reacquire/reacquaint itself.
All being well, your baby is back to its normal original operating state and JR can come back out and play. But put the side back on the computer before he tries to play with the CPU fan...
Hope this helped...
