Unfortunately my experience with BIOS passwords is if you don't happen to know it or can't crack it, you have to send it back to the factory to have it reset.

Replaced my motherboard and now on boot up it asks for a password. I don't have one. Can this be bypassed?


No, this is a BIOS password installed by the previous owner of the laptop. Did you replace the laptop motherboard with a second hand one?

You can go into the BIOS and try 'Restore Defaults'.

Your BIOS is hosed. This could mean that your BIOS chip has simply failed, or that an attempt to
update BIOS failed, or that a pernicious virus has erased part of your BIOS EPROM chip.
Fix: replace BIOS chip - its a physical EPROM chip on the motherboard.
Why this is nearly impossible for the experienced home electronics buff: modern PC boards,
especially those used in laptops/notebooks/pad computers, where space is tight, are
wave-soldered, and virtually impossible to work on - for even the experienced hobbyist.
Your only hope: the BIOS chip is SOCKETED, and can therefore be unplugged (using, of
course, proper anti-static techniques), and replaced. But IC chips sockets are virtually unknown
in laptop/notebook/pad/cell phone construction.

Compaq laptop display not working


Have you tried an external monitor? Plug one in while the laptop is off, then turn it on. If no video on the external monitor, then there's a hardware issue somewhere else. Such as ram, motherboard or possibly cpu.

Acer 1670 laptop will not boot in to bios


If what has happened is true, then the previous owner had killed the BIOS. He has tried to FLASH the BIOS and it failed. This then renderes the motherboard DEAD. Your only option is to try and find a replacement motherboard.

My motherboard BIOS is not starting


look for the CLRCMOS or CLR or JBAT1 terminals. These are the cmos settings and may need to be cleared, so refer to your motherboard manual for which one you have. Although what has probably happened is that when the PSU blew it may well have shorted the cmos chip which cannot be repaired, or damaged the graphics.
