I expect you can reboot, but not log in to either the BIOS (which shouldn't be necessary, normally) or your OS.

Stop offering rather nasty people physical access to your computer, and set passwords and access controls (like timeouts) too!
Obviously you need to try blank passwords, and (esp. if that doesn't work) find out what went on in no uncertain terms using whatever means and help might be permissible. If you can't do that, you get to boot to a CD and (maybe) save your work to a flash drive, then reset passwords or reinstall the OS (or use the restore CD to do it.) Since you haven't said a thing about what the machine is running yet, nobody can tell you how to fix it (until you narrow it down.)

Hi i need to restore my Phillips iqor computer to factory settings as i am getting rid if it and don't want to leave my personal information on it

You don't have to go thru all that trouble to get rid of your personal information. First just create a new user account with administrative rights that the person who is getting your computer will use. After you create the new user account reboot the computer and log on with the new account you created. Then Delete your old user account. It will delete all your documents, music, pictures, videos.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts then create the new user account with Administrative Rights (not limited).

Reboot and and log on with the user account you just created.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Account and select the account you want to delete and Delete it. When asked about files to save, you want to delete everything associated with the account you are deleting.

If you have more than one user account you want to delete, do the same thing for it.

My phone is looking for PUK CODE but i cant find it,can you help?


The PUK (Personal Unlocking Key) code is a code assigned to your carrier's sim card. Its usually written on the form you received when you purchased the sim card, or on the shell the sim card was attached to. If you don't have it, just go to your carrier ( eg.AT&T, T Mobile) and provide your sim card number. Once its under your name, they will provide you with the PUK code.
(Remember most sim cards have a default number of incorrect times you can enter an incorrect code before it destroys the sim, so if you don't know it, dont enter anthing until you receive it from your carrier)

System corrupt...want to do full restore

welcome to fixya

umm if you did not make any backup disk for your computer then there is nothing to be done at your home you will have to take to a service center

unless you know someone with the same computer type or you could try to reboot it with a different reboot /cd
i have a acer computer and i rebooted it with a reboot disk from gateway so this might work but not always

hope this helps out have a good day
