Inspection light on but the oil is changed

I have this problem: from the oil green leds only one is off, the oil and all the filters are changed 2300 km ago, i've checked the oil level and color and it's ok, but the "inspection" light is on, without the "oil service". Also, the bord computer says that everthing is ok.
I have no idea what could it be..this thing is happening since 2 days ago.
Please give me a hint or something, i'm going mad...

P.S. I have a '92 325 is coupe automatik

You have to manually reset the light. If you want you can do to bavauto.com and buy the reset tool or check out our DIY/FAQ section to learn to do it with something special that is cheap as free.

Thks very much, i'll read the FAQ section, maybe i'll find wich pins i have to short to reset that light. But from your experience, is there a problem with the car? That's why i'm concerning for...I had a 325 tds before, and a 524 td but i never experienced this. I got this one 3 month ago and the truth is that i didn't change the gearbox oil and filters. I don't know when the ex-owner did this..

The inspection light comes on after a little less than 7.5k miles (I believe) after the last time the light was reset. The light has nothing to do with the actual condition of any part, liquid, filter ect. of the car. It is purely based on mileage.
