    I have a Compaq Presario 6000 and when I turn it on I get a big blue box that says "Power-on Password" I've never seen this before anyone know how to get past this?

    if you pull the battery turn computer on, it will reset
    then shut down put battery back in and boot up
    or just ask your friend

    Tried the battery idea and that didn't work. Where exactly are the Bios chips? I really have no idea where to look.
