Question about Packard Bell Computers & Internet
WHEN BOOTING, IT SAYS THAT TIME AND DATE ARE NOT SET. PLEASE ENTER SETUP. BUT IT ASKS FOR A PASSWORD. WHAT IS THE DEFAULT PASSWORD?
Let's try to get into BIOS Setup Utility,(some just call it BIOS, but you can't change your BIOS program, only some settings). AS SOON as you push the power button on, press F1. This should take you to a blue & red screen that's reminiscent of DOS. No? Okay restart computer,(CTRL+ALT+Delete keys at same time), and press Delete. Each manufacturer has it's own setting made for them by the BIOS manufacturer,(Award, AMI, Phoenix, etc.) Might be F2,F10. To further explain this, let me direct you to this page at Hardwaresecrets.com: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/6 When you get into BIOS Setup, look across the top headings for Password Option. I'm willing to bet a computer, of this age's BIOS program, has it there. If not, use the Up/Down arrow key/s to 'highlight' Standard BIOS Setup,(or CMOS Setup), and look, Advanced BIOS Setup, and on through the submenu's. It sounds complicated to explain, but it's not. Read the 'navigation' panel at the bottom to move around. You won't affect anything if you don't press Enter, and Save It to CMOS, so don't fret. When you find the Password Option, use your Up/Down key/s to highlight it, press Enter. This will take you into a submenu for it. It will say Yes/No, or ON/OFF. Click on No, or OFF. Press the ESC key to go back to the main menu, then press the F10 key to Save to CMOS, anf press the y key,(shows a upper case Y, just use lower case). Your computer will restart, Windows will load back up, and the password thing will be gone!
