I have a Compaq 1275 with the same problem. You can actually turn it off without removing the battery by holding the on/off button for more than 4 seconds. This actually works for any computers (it is like a reset button). Hope it helps.

I got a computer at a yard sale its old but the man who sold it too me didn't tell me it had password and username


if it is a HP computer, and many others, you can turn on the computer and immediately start tapping the F11 key,(before the main screen pops up) - then follow the prompts and allow plenty of time - this takes awhile. this puts the computer back to the original Factory Settings like out of the box. this is a full system Recovery I had a friend with same issue, bought really nice computer but the guy didn't know the password (so he probably bought it the same way!) she did the F11 and fixed the problem

I would like to re-boot my comuter.


Restart your system and hold down F11. You'll restore to factory settings. As if you just bought it new.

E500 won't shut down


It is probably not shutting down because there is a program running that will not shut down. Unnstall programs you no longer use and do a virus scan, often the programs that refuse to shut down are malicious. Holding down the power button for 5 seconds should shut down the computer (it signals the motherboard to power down). As for the black screen, not enough detail for me to say.
