Having problems with your PC Desktops ?
Turn on it says password - PC Desktops
There is a BIOS Password on this PC it sounds like. If you are comfortable with this, open the computer. You will see a watch battery. Near it will be a little plastic thing on two of 3 metal spikes. Thats a jumper. Move it to the other side of the three spikes. Turn the PC on. Once it boots for a little bit, it probably won't let you do anything. Turn it back off and put the jumper back in the right place. If that isn't there take out the battery you see, keep it out for 30 seconds, unplug from the power as well. Put the battery back in, it may fix your problem.
Simple answer, find the password. Complicated answer, do whats above :-) Good luck!
