Hi,

I am have a really big problem with my PC where it keeps on restarting over and over and does not reach the desktop to log in.

I beleive this problem started when i tried to download Service Pack 2 from the Windows update, but i am not 100% sure.

I have tried to many things but nothing seems to work... I have tried to start in Safemode, Last good known configuration etc but it restarts before anything is loaded.

I have tried to reboot using my XP boot CD but again system restarts before disk is loaded. Also system says something about a BIOS LOCK?

I have also tried to take out the BIOS battery/ CMOS battery i dont know which it is (the onle like a coin) and restarted, but still no joy!

Please can someone help?!

Thank you

Are you able to boot into the BIOS?

What is the make and model number of your computer?

Hi,

I am unable to boot at all. When i try using the back up CD it brings up the error message ' BIOS LOCK, CONTACT MANUFACTURER'. I have tried many things to get rid of this, but nothing works.

I have a TIME computer, not sure what model it is, but it has Windows XP on it.

Have you tried contacting the manufacturer? Have you tried clearing the BIOS?
