    I refurbushed a TECRA 8000. When I start it up the screen displays Sytem Failure and prompts me for a password. Do you know if there is a system default? I can't even enter CMOS to set the boot order to reload the OS. Thanks for your help.

    If you can find the jumper on the mobo to reset the bios - try that.

    Or else remove the cmos battery for 20 or so minutes & replace.

    That should reset the bios & wipe the password.

    Make sure the power cord is unplugged as well, if you're removing the 3 volt.
