    Thanks first of all..but is there anyway to access or to remove it without entering the password? I know i didn't set any BIOS password. Should there be another way or even format it?

    Thx alot tomj23 for your time. I've spent much time lately trying to find any possibilities. I've tried the masterpassword thingy, the key-disk password reset etc. All couldn't work. My Bios is by Phoenix tech, if it could help abit. Thx again.

Hello nic208, The problem is you have a BIOS level password installed. Laptop owners and computer departments sometimes install them in case the laptop is lost or stolen to prevent unauthorized users from gaining access.

    You can't boot the computer without the password so you don't have the ability to format the hard drive.

    I actually spent a lot of time last night researching this but haven't come up with an answer yet. I've got some work to do but i'll do some more looking later tonight.

Is there any way to get on to my computer if I set up an incorrect password and do not know what it is?

Yes but you'll lose all your information... reset it to the factory settings, and next time try to write down your password.

When i start up m,y advent 8117 i get a black screen with blue rectangle asking for password which i dont know enter bios setup it wont do anything till i enter said password getting suicidle

Sounds like someone put a password on your bios, therefore making it so you cant get into your computer...I would recommend pulling your HD bringing it to someone who can get your data off it. Or if you are computer literate get an HD external controller to turn it into an external harddrive then get your data off it. An example of this product would be here.

Blue screen help

Try doing this
1. Boot to your windows XP cd
2. On the welcome to setup screen press "R" to go to recovery console
3. It might ask to select a drive to letter something like that just choose the number represent "x:/windows" then press enter
4. If it asks for admin password just press enter (most system has a blank password for admin user as a default)
5. Type "chkdsk /r /p" on the command prompt
6. This might take 1-2 hours depending on your computer.

Hope this helps...
