Hello, My buddy changed his password on his computer. He forgot said password and tried all day to log in. He asked me for help and I found a program to change password from a boot disk. Everything was going fine until I thought I picked a wrong selection on the menu. I couldnt hit esc to get out of so I turned it off to try again. Now the laptop just starts up for a brief second sometimes a few seconds then turns off. I think I may have changed something I shouldn't have. Now my buddy is all freaked out thinking I broke it. Can anyone offer me any advice. I just want his lsptop back up and running and let him worry about the password issue. He runs windows 7 on an asus laptop.
Ok I got it fixed I guess. I started it up without the battery and for some reason that worked. Then went into bios and set everything a default, shut down and put battery back in. Now it works. Pretty weird.
