Question about IBM Netvista Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz / 512MB DDR / 40GB HDD / DVD-ROM / 10/100Mbps LAN / Windows XP P (RBP42400XPP) PC Desktop
You didn't give us much info about the actual 'problem', but I'll assume that your BIOS is password protected and you don't know the password. There are two ways around this (usually) on a desktop pc. 1. You must remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard. This is actually a 'watch' battery, very carefully remove it and hold the 'power' button a few seconds to discharge any residual power in the system. Wait a couple of minutes, then replace the battery and try to boot into the BIOS. On most desktops this will set the BIOS to it's original default settings (no password). If this doesn't work your only other option is to: 2. Google your "(computer model) BIOS Backdoor". You will probably get several sites showing lists of possible 'backdoor' passwords that your BIOS' manufacturer uses in case a technician needs to get into it. You can also try asking the Pc's manufacturer, but they usually will not give out this info to a customer. Good luck.
