It is a winbook xl when i power it on the battery light turns on not any other lights i dont see any thing on the screen or hear the harddrive or any thing not even a beep i need help the laptop is about...


Without seeing it, I'd guess the power unit might have failed, or it could be the motherboard. Modern computers have a system management controller you can try resetting, but on a 15 year old laptop I don't know what the equivalent would be, if it even exists. If it's the motherboard chances are it'll be cheaper to buy a new computer.

Acer aspire one kav60 restore asking for a password.




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 some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
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
or if using XP

Restart your computer 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.
if still no luck

click start type cmd press enter

At command prompt type debug
you will get a - prompt where you can type the following (<enter> means press enter, not type enter*)

A <ENTER>
MOV AX,0 <ENTER>

I have a sony pcg-grt360 laptop, and I need to install XP from external cd-rom - I can not get into the bios to make the changes to select boot sequence - I need to remove the existing password


Unfortunately this laptop uses the restrictive style of BIOS password. Meaning if you can remove the cmos battery there is a good chance it will not forget the password.

Unfortunately the only way to truly clear it is to replace the whole motherboard which is a nightmare, especially with an older machine like this.

Are you sure there is no way you can get the BIOS password / remember it? I assume that is what is going on, correct?

Please let me know, just reply to my answer here...

Thanks

Can't change enter BIOS on Ubisurfer... help?


Before attempting to bypass the BIOS password on a computer, please take a minute to contact the hardware manufacturer support staff directly and ask for their recommended methods of bypassing the BIOS security. In the event the manufacturer cannot (or will not) help you, there are a number of methods that can be used to bypass or reset the BIOS password yourself.
Try this first : 
manufacturer name : HP
password : HP


Method 1 : Removing the CMOS Battery

The CMOS settings on most systems are buffered by a small battery that is attached to the motherboard. (It looks like a small watch battery). If you unplug the PC and remove the battery for 10-15 minutes, the CMOS may reset itself and the password should be blank. (Along with any other machine specific settings, so be sure you are familiar with manually reconfiguring the BIOS settings before you do this.) Some manufacturers backup the power to the CMOS chipset by using a capacitor, so if your first attempt fails, leave the battery out (with the system unplugged) for at least 24 hours. Some batteries are actually soldered onto the motherboard making this task more difficult. Unsoldering the battery incorrectly may damage your motherboard and other components, so please don't attempt this if you are inexperienced. Another option may be to remove the CMOS chip from the motherboard for a period of time.
Note: Removing the battery to reset the CMOS will not work for all PC's, and almost all of the newer laptops store their BIOS passwords in a manner which does not require continuous power, so removing the CMOS battery may not work at all.For eg: IBM Thinkpad laptops lock the hard drive as well as the BIOS when the supervisor password is set.

Method 2 : Using the Motherboard "Clear CMOS" Jumper or Dipswitch settings

Many motherboards feature a set of jumpers or dipswitches that will clear the CMOS and wipe all of the custom settings including BIOS passwords. The locations of these jumpers / dipswitches will vary depending on the motherboard manufacturer and ideally you should always refer to the motherboard or computer manufacturers documentation. If the documentation is unavailable, the jumpers/dipswitches can sometimes be found along the edge of the motherboard, next to the CMOS battery, or near the processor. Some manufacturers may label the jumper / dipswitch CLEAR - CLEAR CMOS - CLR - CLRPWD - PASSWD - PASSWORD - PWD. On laptop computers, the dipswitches are usually found under the keyboard or within a compartment at the bottom of the laptop.
Please remember to unplug your PC and use a grounding strip before reaching into your PC and touching the motherboard. Once you locate and rest the jumper switches, turn the computer on and check if the password has been cleared. If it has, turn the computer off and return the jumpers or dipswitches to its original position.

Method 3 : 
Jumping the Solder Beads on the CMOS

It is also possible to reset the CMOS by connecting or "jumping" specific solder beads on the chipset. There are too many chipsets to do a breakdown of which points to jump on individual chipsets, and the location of these solder beads can vary by manufacturer, so please check your computer and motherboard documentation for details. This technique is not recommended for the inexperienced and should be only be used as a "last ditch" effort.

Method 4 : 
Password cracking software

The following software can be used to either crack or reset the BIOS on many chipsets. If your PC is locked with a BIOS administrator password that will not allow access to the floppy drive, these utilities may not work. Also, since these utilities do not come from the manufacturer, use them cautiously and at your own risk.

Asking for password


Somehow your BIOS has been password protected. This is usually done to prevent access to a computer by unauthorized persons. Ask everyone that uses this computer if they have done it and what the password is. If there's no solution that way, follow these directions to try to reset the BIOS
Satellite A100 series
  1. Remove Memory Cover from base of machine
  2. Release & remove right side Memory Module
  3. Lift black plastic insulation
  4. Locate & short PAD500 Pin 1 & 2 together
  5. Power on machine while still shorting Pin 1 & 2
  6. As soon as the TOSHIBA logo appears, remove short
  7. If machine boots, password has been removed

Hp compaq nx8220 - Administrator password cannot be reset


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.

Had trouble booting then just quit booting altogether...
For a quick fix that won't require soldering....
Replace the cmos battery2.gif. If it is more than 7 years old, it will most likely be weak or dead.
Remove the keyboard by sliding the KB toward you and lift the top up and slide out, Remove KB ribbon cable2.gif from connector by pulling on the plastic tab, remove the 4pin KB power connector. Then remove bottom screws and separate the case.
Locate the 3V battery, Pry the top tab of the 3v battery off the welded ends with a small needlenose, Pry the battery off the mini board, bend battery tabs so the new non-tabbed battery will be squeezing the new battery for contact, + is up!, add a piece of electrical tape to secure it from sliding. Replace bottom case and screws and then re-attach keyboard2.gif ribbon cable and 4 wire power connector. Re-boot and reset cmos ( CTRL-ALT-S ) on boot. Set your time. You must set the boot sequence to C:. It will then auto boot to C: WALLA! WIN98!

Acer aspire 5050 asking for a password upon start up


If it is asking for a password upon startup then someone put a password on your CMOS. Unfortunately, unless you can find out what the password is, then the only way to clear it is to remove the battery in your motherboard. The battery is what keeps the information in CMOS when the computer is turned off.
