When I turn my laptop on it won't. Let me log in


Hello

With any password issues, be sure you do not have your CAPS LOCK on and, because this is a laptop, be sure the NUM LOCK is not on either. NUM LOCK activates the number pad on the letters of the keyboard and can easily cause login issues.

With both off, type your password in the USER NAME field and make sure it appears correctly (this will show you what you are typing and how the laptop "sees" what you typed). If this is correct, delete this, enter your user name and then re-type the password and see if you can get logged in.

If this fails, you may need to use a "password reset boot disk" to boot your computer up and reset your password. Let us know if you need help with that step.

I am looking for my bios password on my toshiba deskstop it was locked i do not have password harddrive password is locked


You're definitely out of luck if there is a Password on the Hard Drive. The only way you can get the system to ever work again is to get that someone that put the password on the hard drive to take it off.

99% of the time if a computer has a Password on the hard drive and the person it possession of the computer does not know the password, it's a stolen computer. The original owner put the password lock on it to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data if it is stolen.

Dell laptop computer how do i unlock ruby laptop not a desktop when sgin on it read ruby lock how do i unlock it. rubybryant89@yahoo.com


The computer goes in to lock mode when it goes into hybernation or to sleep after a period of inactivity. By "ruby laptop" I presume you mean there is a button with the name ruby on it? If so, just click on the button and if it is password protected, it will ask you for the password for that user account. If it is not password protected it will go on into the desktop.

I have a Lenovo A3 series all in one desktop computer and it is not recognizing my password and I am locked out. I put myself on as administrator and the computer was turned off before I backed up the...



first make sure the caps lock if off/on whatever applies the password when you typed it in

Remove a small coin sized CMOS battery to store all BIOS settings along with the password. To reset the password, unplug the PC, open the cabinet and remove the CMOS battery for approx. 15-30 minutes and then put it back. It'll reset all BIOS settings

as well as the password and you'll need to re-enter all settings.

Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computerthe location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.

If it fails, then try to remove the battery for at least one hour.

click start control panel Open User Accounts in Control Panel. On the Users tab, click the name of the user whose password you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK. Notes You can change passwords only for local computer accounts, such as guest, administrator, or accounts you create for your computer. You cannot change your network logon password in User Accounts. To change your own password, press CTRL ALT DELETE and then click Change Password

hope this helps

Laptops Acer e lock activated / password unknown


Fastest way slick and reinstall. That's why I never in 25 years of computer support never enabled passwords that deep. Some system have a hardware reset buried inside but it takes a tech to get to it. Some time removing the CMOS battery will do it. It would be easier to hack the OS and get into the Admin password than a hardware passwork.

Computer is locked unable to use it


I guess it's windows what is locked.
You can figure out your forgotten password with OPHCRACK
justdownload the right one for your operateing system burn it out to a discand boot the laptop from it, it can figure out the password most of thetimes supriseingly fast. to try out everything it's got shouldn't takemore or less around 20 minutes, but there's a slight chance that it won't work, but they say that Success rate: 99.9%
Charset: 0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

If it's asking for password right after swich on than it should be a bios password, in that case try turning off the laptop and removeing the battery for 1-2 hours to reset CMOS settings, on some modells under the cpu there is a hole, try to push the button in it for a few secs and see if it helps.
