    couple days ago from cashgen

    I'd take it back to the shop, sounds like a BIOS password which will be a pain to by-pass and they should have checked before they sold it

    it works with some laptops but i tried that it dont

    Take the main battery off and remove the cmos battery from the motherboard for 30 minutes. Put it all back together and your problem will be solved

    Looks fairly easy to remove the cmos battery, it's the little round silver battery under the back cover. Guide here on how to remove.

    Once you've removed both batteries try holding down the power button (with no power connected) for about 10-20 seconds. Then as sdoherty1000 suggested leave it off for about 30 minutes. If no joy then take it back to the shop for a refund.

    i already tried removing cmos battery nothing

    Remove the main battery and cmos battery, hold down power button for 20 seconds, then plug in mains lead and power on (without putting the batteries back in)

    Take it back, a BIOS password is your worst nightmare. This is not faulty, it is clearly a stolen laptop, Cash Gen should not be buying or selling laptops with BIOS passwords on them.

    You cannot get passed 99.9% of BIOS passwords, unless of course you know the password. Which in 99% of BIOS password locked computers mean they are stolen.

    Take it back and get them to sort it out, or give you a full refund

    That's simply not true and the cmos battery method works on 99.9% of laptops/pc's. However some cannot be erased and require more specialist tools/methods.

    it was bought on faulty section.. so i known if was faulty and its amazing spec for very little price why would i take it back :Djust need to get bios off

    It may be possible to flash an updated bio's, that may possibly remove the password.
