You could try Compaq as the bios password some manufacturers place this password on there computers for maintanance reasons
or you might
On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove. If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password. If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is. If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper. This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard. If all else fails, you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (integrated circuit) on your motherboard. Many RTC's require an external battery. If your RTC is one of this type, you can clear the BIOS password just by unsocketing the RTC and reseating it. RTC's which require external batteries hope this helps

Password on Bios of sony vaio VPCEB46FG


You don't need to put a bios password on it.

If the bios already has a password on it then it will not let you boot the computer without you putting it in. It sounds like you are already booted up and into the bios, if that is true don't set a bios password.

Gigabyte G41MT-S2P can't boot on cd/dvd rom (installing win7)


If both the HDD and the CD/DVD drive contain bootable devices, the BIOS will usually ask just before starting the HDD boot, while still on the black screen, "Press any key to boot from CD". If you don't watch for this (it's usually at the very bottom or top of the screen), then the system will boot to the HDD.

How i'll start to formate my dv6 hp laptop 2163tx step by step i'hv my recovery cd


Put the CD/DVD in the machine and re-boot it. If it doesn't readt it from the start you'll need to change the boot drive order in the machine's BIOS Setup which you get to when the machine is just starting up (look for the key to press during the boot up process). After you set the CD ROM to be the first boot drive - the recovery disk should boot the machine and get you going.

Then just boot the computer with the Live CD in the CD/DVD drive. If it doesn't boot into the CD you will have to go into the BIOS and set the boot order so that the CD/DVD drive boots first. Most computers will tell you which "F" key to press to get into "setup," also called the BIOS. Sometimes it is the "del" key.

Be advised that it is a criminal offense to break into a computer that doesn't belong to you.

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.

For boot from disk first you have to set first boot device option in BIOS.
for that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu then set first boot device as your cd/dvd rom.
then save settings then insert recovery diks in rom then check.
Then it boot from disk if your disk and cd.dvd rom works fine.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.
