Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If the computer you are servicing has an unknown password, you need to clear the CMOS by removing the battery

Open the Machine

Remove the real-time clock (RTC) battery (CMOS Battery)

I REPLACED MY HARDDRIVE ON - ezrahite_67.jpg

Wait approximately 5 minutes.

Replace the RTC battery and reassemble the computer.

Connect AC power to the computer. Do not reinsert any batteries at this time.

Turn on the computer.

All passwords and CMOS settings have been cleared.

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixyamoz-screenshot-4.png

Cq56 reset bios password


You will have to remove the power cord, remove the batteryand remove the CMOS Battery that is located on the motherboard. On mostcomputers you will have to take the laptop apart to get to the cmosbattery. On some systems it looks like a silver nickel that you will needa small flat head screw driver to pop it out. On other systems it will beinside a vinyl covering and has a cable that plugs into the motherboard. Once you remove the CMOS Battery, let it sit for an hour or two then put itback in and put the laptop back together. Boot the machine and you'llprobably have to go into the Bios or System Setup because the system will haveforgotten the date, time and password.If the password is not reset then you might have to go and remove a Pin from the password jumper on the motherboard. I would consult the user manual and see how to do it.

5. wait 5 minutes
6. connect AC power
7. Turn on computer unit (BIOS gets a few errors = date, time, mismatch etc. no need to panic, if everything is ok then get into computer setup pressing F10, change existing setup values as needed, if ok power down computer.

Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart error


Is it a black screen right when you boot your computer? If so this could be a fatal disk error and the harddrive has crashed.

There is no easy fix other than to replace the harddrive.

I turn on my compaq presario c300 and it immediately take me to an enter power-on password screen


Hello,
A password on boot is not set by default. The owner activates this option. If some prankster or michief maker has entered a password on boot on your computer without your knowing it, there is nothing you can do, save taking the machine to an HP Certified Service Center to have the password removed or reset.
As the password on boot is a deterrent against computer thefts, you might be asked to show proof of ownership. This certainly is the case with Toshiba laptops.

Hope it helps.
