If your battery will not charge, you need to run a test on some components on the laptop. The battery, the charger and the laptop itself. Once you detect the faulty conponent then you replace it with a new one.

To test the battery:
1.Power off the laptop,
2.Take out the battery,
3.Insert it in another laptop,
4.Check of it will charge,

If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the problem is not from the battery, but if it does not hold a charge, then it means the battery is defective and need to be replaced with a new one.

To test the charger:
1.Unplug the charger from the present laptop,
2.Connect it to another laptop to see if it will charge.

If it charges the laptop, then it means the charger is alright, and if it does not charge the laptop, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced.

To test the laptop:
1.Turn off the laptop,
2.Disconnect your present charger,
3.Remove your present battery pack,
4.Insert a well tested battery into the laptop,
5.Connect a well tested charger to the laptop.

If it powers on, then it and charges, then it means the laptop is working fine, but if it does not charge, then it means the connection port of the laptop is bad.Hope this information was helpful.

If it is the system hardware password, you cannot get into it.
If it is the windows password, you can but this is a public forum and it is not allowed to explain how. Take it to a computer repair shop.

Must we beg you what PC? NOR what OS this is.
failure to boot has vast causes.
Do you want them all, ?
Take the PC to any shop get it fixed.
clear to causes.
1: HDD bad, no bad HDD on earth can boot your OS, is that clear? We test this HDD first.
2: A Corrupted unstated OS. endless ways, reload it and cured.

There are more, but I want to keep it simple.

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.

If you've got working Wi-Fi but your wired ethernet connection is not working, the first thing to do is turn off the Wi-Fi. Believe it or not, this might tell you that the ethernet is working. ... Right-click on the icon, go to Open Network and Internet Settings, then the Wi-Fi tab, and toggle off.

This Error 1702 problem can occur if all the following conditions are true:
  • You originally installed Office from a network administrative installation.
  • The network administrative installation is no longer available to you.
  • You are trying to use an Office CD-ROM when you are prompted by the Windows Installer for an Office source location.
  • You click Cancel when you are prompted to insert the CD.
Because the files in an administrative installation are uncompressed, and the files on an Office CD-ROM are compressed, the Windows Installer cannot resolve the differences between the two source types. The resolution to this problem depends on whether you can obtain access to a network administrative installation. Use the following methods, as appropriate to your situation.

If the original administrative installation from which you installed Office is not available, you can use a different administrative installation for the Office source file location. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type a command line similar to the following, and then click
    OK new network path\Setup.exe /fvm package name.msi
    where new network path is the full path to the alternative network administrative installation, and
    package name is the name of the Windows Installer .msi package on the root of this administrative installation (for example, Proplus.msi).
  3. Click OK when the update is finished.
