Answers :

You face the bios master password check,
someone has already tried to enter a wrong password, now the pc does not accept any other
password input.
if this is your pc and you forgot about he password - big trouble
if you still want to use it, ask the manufacturer for help
or disassemble it, get a new similiar mainboard and put together all the parts again-
you may think about upgrading it by chance. please post another query giving more details
on putting together a new computer on fixya - good luck

Sometimes when i try to turn on my compAQ PRESARIO F700 i have to hit the power button numerous times before it will power up and one it went into a reboot cycle where it would never make it past the POST. i eventually gave up and stopped using it . then one day 4 months later i tried it and on the 20th push of the power button it came on....very tempermental. I am now afraid to turn it off because i fear it will not turn back on. anybody have this issue or now the fix?
