Sir,

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!

Thanks
Good Luck

HAVE A PACKARD BELL LAPTOP EASYNOTE F 5275 IT HAS CMOS PROBLEM IT CANNOT BOOT WITHOUT SETTING CLOCK AND DATE AND THERE IS NO ANYWHERE IN MOTHERBOARD I CAN SEE THE CMOS PLACE KIND ASSIST


try to boot and when it asks to set the time and date ..press F1 to go to the BIOS settings and in there save like it is with F10..and enter ..will start anyway and you will set the time in windows..
or ...go to bios directly by pressing F10 if it is a HP computer or ..F2 for any other laptop ..and in there on the time settings just set the time and the date from the arrows and enter ..
if you have other problems and you opened it ...you will have to remove the Bios battery to default it to the factory settings ..this will eliminate any passwords that might had kept you out of bios...if you do not see the battery ..remove the wireless card and see if it is under it ..

When I turn on my packard bell computer on it comes up with a black screen saying "Boot from CD / DVD" and a BIOS password?


Remove the battery on the motherboard to restore default settings.
check the connection to your Hard drive (the system is not seeing it)
The battery removal will take care of the password, and you will be able to get in the BIOS.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

WHERE DO I FIND PASSWORDS FOR BOOT AND SETUP


here the reply i left for another problem of the same sort just with an IBM. the process for undooing this is similar for most laptops so just apply Packard Bell instead of IBM

the only solutions i know are both non easy fixes. one is to strip down the laptop and find the bios battery if it has one. then pull it, leave it 30 seconds and put it back in, rebuild and all will be well. the other is to get hold of IBM and fax them proof of ID and ownership (the usualy request although i havent done it with IBM yet) and they have an unlocking set of passwords which is written into the BIOS.

F1 is probably the key to enter the Bios setup utility. Press and hold the F1 key immediately after you start the machine. Go to the boot priority section, and set your CD-Rom as first boot device. Press f10 to save the settings and reboot with your recovery disk installed

Try this. Remove battery for a few minutes,re insert. This will put it back to the original factory settings,which will not need a password.Good Luck

Since you forgot the password best thing to do is make the cmos forget it. The way to do this is remove the cmos battery. Take it out for several hours then put it back in. This will reset the cmos and you should gain access.
