If you're not getting a beep code then you can be almost certain the problem does not lie with any of your hardware aside from your CPU.

It is possible your CPU is overheating, in which case you can try to increase the fan speed in the CMOS setup. For further troubleshooting I recommend using isopropyl alcohol to remove the old thermal paste from the heatsink and CPU die, and apply a new, small, pea-sized dab of thermal paste to the CPU die (after which you remount and lock into place the heatsink and CPU fan).

Sometimes these startup problems are very simple, and since you said the fan slows down rather than stopping, it could simply be you have a loose connection somewhere. I'd start with the PSU cables for the motherboard and CPU, and then the fan-monitoring plugs on the motherboard.

Also, it never hurts to load the default CMOS setup, and if you have any expansion cards you'll want to reseat all of them.

My hp desktop L1506 is locked and I forgot my password... Can I fix this


When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there


The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard.

Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself.

Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

cmos battery Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment. Although on some motherboards the Cmos battery is soldered in

Often many users will leave the administrator account alone or have other accounts with administrator rights. If you're not logging into the computer as administrator or have other accounts follow the below steps to reset your other accounts password.

Reboot the computer into Safe Mode
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer Advanced Boot Options screen appears.

Select the Safe Mode option using the up and down arrow keys, then press the ENTER key. Choose "Windows XP Home/Professional", depending on the version of the operating system.

Press ENTER. Shortly, the welcome screen should show.
Log in as "Administrator". Click Yes to not use System Restore Mode.


Click the Start button. Choose Run and type in "control user passwords" (without the quotes). Click OK.


Select the "Administrator" user. Click Change my password. Enter a new password in the corresponding text boxes. Click OK. Write this password down and store it in a secure place Close the User Accounts window and restart Windows.


In User Accounts select the account you wish to change the password for, click change password and then enter the new password or click remove the password to remove the password from the account.


If all else fails you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard


Many RTC's require an external battery. If your RTC is one of this type you can clear the BIOS password just by unsocketing the RTC and reseating it



Hope it helps

Unlock Code for access to Computer


Resetting the CMOS can be achieved via removing the 'button cell' battery for 10+ minutes OR enabling a jumper (pin connector) on the motherboard, this will clear the PCs setup configuration and require you to reset the parameters.

Re-installing windows will only effect the OS (software) environment, if your question is HOW to bypass a users/administrators password... I shall respectfully decline that information.

Cannot boot or enter setup. ASUS A7V600-X


Hi,

I'm managed to fix this myself.

The system would hang at power-up, simply displaying the ASUS screen, and
I could not get into the BIOS setup at all with the usual pressing of the <DEL> key. I was completely stuck. Did this mean I needed a new motherboard?

I hoped not, so I downloaded the userguide for my particular motherboard from the ASUS US website, from another machine. Browsed through it and found where the jumpers were located on the motherboard to clear the RTC (Real Time Clock) and system settings on the CMOS chip. This meant: removing the battery on the motherboard; moving the jumpers to clear the CMOS settings; waiting a few seconds; moving the jumpers back; reconnecting the battery; rebooting. And hey presto! I could get back into the BIOS set up, where I then had to set the correct date and time, and the processor speed once more. And then a final reboot, letting it go all the way to load the OS in full.

I'm back...

Make sure the cmos setup is set to try booting from the CDROM. There are various methods to access cmos setup...but usually you need to press either the Delete key, or F10 or F12 right after turning on the power.

If it won't boot from the CDROM, the problem is is more likely to be in the power supply or motherboard than the hard drive.
