I have an HP 6000 series desktop that was purchased a year or so ago brand new, surplus to requirements that was set up for networking. with it came upgrading discs for Windows 7. So now support for XP is ending, I thought that I would upgrade to Windows 7 as a step up to Windows10.
With the discs came the full instructions plus password to do this.
I have copied all the files etc to an external hard drive.
Now following the step by step instructions, I have come across a small problem.
I am able to get into BIOS, enter password etc, then into security where it asks for the password again. this is where it came unstuck, I was able to move the cursor up and down but unable to type any numbers or letters, any suggestions as to how I can get past this stage?
The reason for going into BIOS is to remove any existing passwords and make the cd rom the primary boot device.
ps I have always had to go to 'my computer' to start the CD-ROM, so the existing setup may be the reason why.
