trying to help another wikiwirral member sort their laptop out The laptop had no working dvd but I've put another in I was given by another wiki member I've backed up the hard drive to another usb hard drive via another pc.(approx. 56 gigabytes) The laptop hd has now been formatted and when I try to install xp it reads the xp cd so far then says there is no hd. I thought - get into the bios to recognize it, but it wants a password first which we don't know. Have heard about taking the watch type battery out to reset the bios but laptop knowledge only goes as far as unscrewing a few screws on the back and looking. I think this battery may be under the keyboard where I don't want to try. Is there a bootable cd software option?
Hi, I think what you have is a rm nb4300 note book, if it is this the default password is rm or rmplc. If your lucky it won't have been changed, if it has you can reset it using a jumper in the memory compartment.
