Having problems with your PC Desktops ?
Can' get back on computer
\015 My electric went out one night, and when i turned my computer back on it asked for a password. i never needed a password before so i don't understand what password it is asking for.\015
Hi. Is it the bios password or Windows password? If it's the bios jumper 1 on the mother board is the bios reset. Just reset the jumper and all shoul be good. If its windows it may be an administrator password you had when you set up your pc that being the case, depending on how you setup windows you may be able to press ctrl,alt, delete to get to user menu and press enter, alternativly clear the box and press enter.

I tried a different video card. Nothing. I connected to an external monitor. Nothing. I have heard of a lot of problems with this model, but never about the video socket on the motherboard. Is there anything else I could try?
