Open your cpu remove the battery on the motherboard restart the pc without battery and refresh the bios by the jumper or a switch present near to the battery.

Change the resolution right click over your desktop blank area click properties and under setting you can adjust screen resolution

Hi,
It seems to be BIOS password, if you don't remember or don't have the BIOS password you have to reset the password by opening your CPU cover and removing the CMOS coin battery, this will reset the BIOS password but dont forget to return back the battery and start using your PC.

I forgot the BIOS password someone told me to remove battery and put it back but i cant find the battery


The BIOS Battery, to be precise CMOS battery looks like:

When your PC is turned off, your computer saves information about time, bios options and others with the help of CMOS battery. Try to remove it, wait a few minutes and set it back again. This action might cause to reset your BIOS password.

Problem with BIOS password on a Dell OptiPlex GX240 ??? user forgot the system password


In order to clear the BIOS password, you can remove the coin-cell (CMOS Battery) from the motherboard for a few minutes. The BIOS settings will be reset to defaults and you will have to reset password etc.

Hope it helps!

My screen has gone massive and the colours have gone negative. help me?.................. x


Hi,

That sounds like your video card has gone back into VGA mode, 16 colours and a screen resolution of 640 x 480.

Go into the display settings and try setting the resolution to something like 1024 x 768 and the colour to 32 bit (16 million colours).

If the adjustment cannot be made, it is likely you have a graphics card driver issue. Find out what graphics card or chip you have and download a new driver from the manufacturers website.

Hope this helps.

Unplug your power source open the case and remove the battery, wait 60s put the battery back and turn on the computer. I think than you will not be waken up and you will be able to access BIOS as well.
