The easy way is to open up the laptop and remove the smal batery from inside for about 15 minute and put it back, the hard way is to dowload KILLCMOS from internet put it on a flopy disk and insert the flopy disk if you have one in your laptop and falow the prompter

If this issue started with a motherboard error that appeared to be a faulty CMOS battery and then it started incorrectly detecting your memory and now is asking for a password it could be a faulty motherboard. If you are 110% you or anyone else has set a password on that laptop then I would say your motherboard needs to be replaced. It is a difficult process to reset admin passwords on most laptops due to a security chip that will prevent the trick of removing the battery from working. In all honestly if no one has set a password and the motherboard THINKS someone has then even if you reset the password you will still have issues. There is a small chance your CPU or RAM could be defective. But, again going back to it saying you have a password set that was never set. It just yells faulty motherboard unless someone has set a password without you knowing.

SOURCE: My HP Mini won't reboot.
The hard disk cable seems to have got loose. Get into BIOS setup and check if the hard disk is detected. To do this, look for a hint in the first screen that appears with the HP logo. Mostly it will be F2. Hit it before the screen goes off. The main screen will show the devices attached to your laptop. Check if the hard disk is detected(see against the text named Primary Master). If yes, go to Boot tab. Under it see for Boot device priority and select that. Under it make sure your Hard disk is set as the first option.

Testimonial: "Awesome! Great advice and figured out what was wrong in a heart beat. Definitely calmed me down by letting me know that my problem is an easy fix. :D"
SOURCE: I recover the operating system
Go into the BIOS by pressing f10 when powering on the laptop.
Go to System Configuration and choose Device Configuration
Scroll down to SATA Native Mode and disable.
Press f10 to save configuration. The computer should reboot and press f9 to select boot device.
See if the 160GB hdd is now showing as an option. If it is then you are in luck.
p.s: You may need to update the BIOS to the latest if it still does not show up for you.
