It could sound absurd, but did you try to type the digits with dashes or without? Maybe this is the problem!

For example:
1234567890123456 (16 digits)
1234-5678-9012-3456 (19 digits)

It is just a wild idea, but it may work, or can give you a good idea..

Because you didn't say it was a game, you mentioned security, games don't have security as you mentioned in your first post, although they have product keys.

That's why i posted a router security solution.

we cannot answer correctly if you don't post the full details of your problem.

Whoever give you the keycode is who you need to quiery it with.

I have an old pc by brother gasme me from his work. It had a password on it, from the previous user, which i was using. I decided to try and just take this off. I removed the passwords from the use


First thing I'd try is to log on as the local administrator:
username: administrator
password: (empty)

If that doesn't work and you really can't log in AT ALL, you can reset the administrator password . Download Pete Nordahl's Boot-CD (here), burn it to a CD and boot your computer with the CD in the drive (Depending on the PC you might have to tap the F2 or F12 key when booting to get to the boot menu, where you can set it to boot from CD.)
On XP, do NOT change the administrator's password, just reset it (to empty)
Don't forget to "write to disk" at the end of the process.
Remove the CD when done, reboot and log in as "administrator".

Let me know if this works for you or if you need more details.
And read the FAQ (link)!

Difference between a hub , switch and a router


Hubs, switches, and routers are all devices which let you connect one or more computers to other computers, networked devices, or to other networks. Each has two or more connectors called ports into which you plug in the cables to make the connection. Varying degrees of magic happen inside the device, and therein lies the difference. I often see the terms misused so let's clarify what each one really means.

A hub is typically the least expensive, least intelligent, and least complicated of the three. Its job is very simple: anything that comes in one port is sent out to the others. That's it. Every computer connected to the hub "sees" everything that every other computer on the hub sees. The hub itself is blissfully ignorant of the data being transmitted. For years, simple hubs have been quick and easy ways to connect computers in small networks.

A switch does essentially what a hub does but more efficiently. By paying attention to the traffic that comes across it, it can "learn" where particular addresses are. For example, if it sees traffic from machine A coming in on port 2, it now knows that machine A is connected to that port and that traffic to machine A needs to only be sent to that port and not any of the others. The net result of using a switch over a hub is that most of the network traffic only goes where it needs to rather than to every port. On busy networks this can make the network significantly faster.


A router is the smartest and most complicated of the bunch. Routers come in all shapes and sizes from the small four-port broadband routers that are very popular right now to the large industrial strength devices that drive the internet itself. A simple way to think of a router is as a computer that can be programmed to understand, possibly manipulate, and route the data its being asked to handle. For example, broadband routers include the ability to "hide" computers behind a type of firewall which involves slightly modifying the packets of network traffic as they traverse the device. All routers include some kind of user interface for configuring how the router will treat traffic. The really large routers include the equivalent of a full-blown programming language to describe how they should operate as well as the ability to communicate with other routers to describe or determine the best way to get network traffic from point A to point B.

Try cleaning the lens that sits on top of the laser - use something like

If that doesn't work then the laser has died, and the entire unit with it - it happens. Time for a new one, it's just $30 at every pc shop.

Take a look at these as a good example of what you need.
Almost any one of thse will help you out. You need to decide on an internal card, installed in the case or an external USB device, some of which look like a flash drive.

I have an e-machines with a dvd/cd-rom in one that will not work.


i understand that your pc has a single dvd-drive that has the problem that it dos read dvds but not cds...
please give model because this is a rare error.
to check it, get the following disks and the freeware program 'burnatonce' (it is a burning software that accesses the drives on a lower than windows basis )
to check from the hardware side what the problem is:

install burnatonce
run it
open tools/device info
and check if the following disc are really recognized or not

a standard music cd(audio cd)
a computer cd(original ! windows install cd or other install cd)
a self burnt cd containing mp3's (CD-R type, 700MB or800MB)
any other computer cd for pc

an original film dvd
a selfburnt film dvd (DVD-R)
an original computer-data dvd (any PC-Game will do)

if only dvd's work, strange!

get a new drive then.
