Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

The emachine laptop I'm trying to fix is an E625. When it tries to boot up, after timing out, it turns the screen black and puts a disk ''read error'' message in the upper left corner of the screen. If I try to boot from a CD, the CD drive is not recognized. I assume the phoenix bios is set to go to the hard drive first. If I do an F-2, it goes to a password request before it will open the bios. Neither I, nor the owner know what that password is. I tried to open the laptop to remove the bios


Answers :

That will NOT help, these laptops have that DATA stored inside in Non-volatile RAM, it cannot be removed by any other methods, other than, getting the correct "Unlock" code, after proving proof of ownership, they will issue you with an "Unlock Code". This is done to thwart thieves, it wouldn't be much good, if one could simply do as you suggest, and defeat it. No they make it ABSOLOUETLY BULLETPROOF. The Code is not in the CMOS, or BIOS, as said, it is stored in a special Chip. Now sometimes in my shop I get this and it is absolutely "Spontaneous" and I know the owner and it has happened randomly. One still has to contact the manufacturer or take it in for "Service" provide proof of ownership, and for a "Fee" they will "Unlock" it and give you the "Code" so it cannot happen again. Also some laptops, like yours, this is a Know Problem, the spontaneous, lockout, in this case they often, will do it for FREE, or a reduced charge. use Honey and if you have to. vinegar. to get the problem sorted out.

\015\012In regards to the password in the bios on your notebook alot of times you have to contact the manufacture and they will give you a pass key to reset the bios password.

\015\012In regards from booting from CD alot of times if you hit F12 like you hit F8 at boot to get a boot menu to boot from CD.
