There are several ways on which you can reset the cmos in your pc, most common ways are removing the battery (like what you did) or doing a short circuit on the battery or reset pins. However there are some manufacturers now that use a different method, I had a dell PC before where the reset pins are already shorted, to reset it, I had to remove the jumper, power the device for 10sec, power it off then put the jumper back, kinda odd but I guess that how dell wants it, you can try that method as well. there are some that requires a key or before it could be reset like what I heard on some HP brand computers, the use has to call HP, then they ask for the serial or something then give ot generate a key. The best advise is to consult the documentation or vendor of your laptop for details on how to get your reset your laptop.

cheers,

I have a compaq evo n610c and need a power on password i have lost mine and cant get on my computer


The password exists to protect you, if a thief is in possesion of your computer, and wants to use it. So, there is no way to "bypass" it.

Find your original sales-receipt, to prove that you are the owner, and contact Compaq, and ask for Technical Support.

Make sure you start by deleting the old partition, and formatting C:. If it still locks up after that, then your hard drive is bad.

Compaq Evo N610c bootup password protected. Its my friends computer I told him i can get the password off. its about 2 years since he used it. (its not stolen) we tried for 5 hours on and off to remember...


Remove the main battery, then the CMOS battery(coin cell under the keyboard IIRC). Unplug the laptop and leave it for 15-20 minutes. This should clear the password out OK.

Compaq n610c will not poweron


See if the a/c >> d/c input connector on the rear right side of the unit - if so you've damaged the connector to the input board and a/c will not flow. Also try another 65w compaq or hp external power supply. They do have a tendancy to fail. Now if your a/c power supply is ok then you will need a replacement A/c converter board that is a separate component board attached to your m/board. The part number from Hp is as listed - if this corrects your fault rate my assistance. The N610c are a very good laptop my daughter still has her that I got her from new.Parts listing for unit can be found here >> http://partsurfer.hp.com/cgi-bin/spi/main

Clear power on password


Removing the Time of Year battery will clear the BIOS password. It is located on the underside of the n610c behind the panel covered by the Microsoft COA label. A small phillips screwdriver is required to remove the two screws on the panel. Carefully lift the BR1225 battery with a small flat blade screw driver.

After 10 minutes re-insert the battery. The BIOS Password should now be cleared, as well as other BIOS settings, the time and date.
