Power on Password

By marstonchris ·
I have a Compaq Laptop, the powe on password has been set for some time. A couple of days ago some knocked over my unit and it fell on the floor. After I picked it up I noticed that the battery fell out. I put it back in and but now the power on password I had orginally set is no longer valid. Please help

Easy Fix

by Bizzo In reply to Power on Password

If the problem was caused by dropping the laptop on the floor and the battery falling out, the only logical solution would be to do the exact opposite of this, in the hope that your original password will return.

So the problem was, laptop falls from the desk to the floor, as it bounces, the battery falls out and then both battery and laptop come to rest (disconnected).

The opposite of this would be the battery and laptop are disconnected on the floor, you need to bounce the laptop off the floor (I would suggest throwing it really hard or kicking it), and as it bounces, throw the battery at it. If you time it just right you should be able to throw the battery into the laptop, if you can then get the laptop (plus battery) to land back on the desk, then that is a bonus. You password would almost definitely return.
