Question about Acer Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I can't get in to my user account.

I closed down my laptop via the on/off button instead of the 'shut down' method, and as a result when I try to log onto my user account I can't get access. The arrow cursor doesn't change to the hand, nor does the panel show for me to type in my password.
Can you help please?

Hello,

Try to competelly shut down your laptop by pressing the On/Off button for approximatelly 5 seconds...

Once is shutted down, try to start it again.
If you are unable to start up your notebook, then try pressing F8 after the initial screen is displayed. Not wait too long because otherwise it will try to start Windows again. The F8 key must be pressed BEFORE windows starts.... Then, you will see several options...Choose the one that says "Safe Mode". By doing this you will be able to access your notebook and reinstall Windows again. Only do this if you were unable to start windows in standard mode.

Hope it helps.

Tip

Using UAC in Windows Vista


Windows Vista has the built-in ability to automatically reduce the potential of security breaches in the system. It does that by automatically enabling a feature called User Account Control (or UAC for short). The UAC forces users that are part of the local administrators group to run like they were regular users with no administrative privileges.








Although UAC clearly improves the security on Windows Vista, under some scenarios you might want to disable it, for example when giving demos in front of an audience (demos that are not security related, for example). Some home users might be tempted to disable UAC because of the additional mouse clicking it brings into their system, however I urge them not to immediately do so, and try to get used to it instead.
Anyway, if required, you can disable UAC by using one of the following methods:
Method #1 - Using MSCONFIG
  1. Launch MSCONFIG by from the Run menu.
  2. Click on the Tools tab. Scroll down till you find "Disable UAC" . Click on that line.
    disable_uac_1.gif
  3. Press the Launch button.
  4. A CMD window will open. When the command is done, you can close the window.
  5. Close MSCONFIG. You need to reboot the computer for changes to apply.
You can re-enable UAC by selecting the "Enable UAC" line and then clicking on the Launch button.
*Recommended: Speed up Vista boot times by reducing the number of programs that load at startup. Control your Vista startup list with this Vista app
Method #2 - Using Regedit
  1. Open Registry Editor.
  2. In Registry Editor, navigate to the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
  3. Locate the following value (DWORD): EnableLUA and give it a value of 0.
    disable_uac_2.gif Note: As always, before making changes to your registry you should always make sure you have a valid backup. In cases where you're supposed to delete or modify keys or values from the registry it is possible to first export that key or value(s) to a .REG file before performing the changes.
  4. Close Registry Editor. You need to reboot the computer for changes to apply.
In order to re-enable UAC just change the above value to 1.
Method #3 - Using Group Policy This can be done via Local Group Policy or via Active Directory-based GPO, which is much more suited for large networks where one would like to disable UAC for many computers at once.
If using Local Group Policy you'll need to open the Group Policy Editor (Start > Run > gpedit.msc) from your Vista computer.
If using in AD-based GPO, open Group Policy Management Console (Start > Run > gpmc.msc) from a Vista computer that is a member of the domain. In the GPMC window, browse to the required GPO that is linked to the OU or domain where the Vista computers are located, then edit it.
  1. In the Group Policy Editor window, browse to Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options.
    disable_uac_gpo_1.gif
  2. In the right pane scroll to find the User Access Control policies (they're down at the bottom of the window). You need to configure the following policies:disable_uac_gpo_2.gif
  3. You'll need to reboot your computers.
Method #4 - Using Control Panel
  1. Open Control Panel.
  2. Under User Account and Family settings click on the "Add or remove user account".
    disable_uac_3.gif
  3. Click on one of the user accounts, for example you can use the Guest account.
  4. Under the user account click on the "Go to the main User Account page" link.
    disable_uac_4.gif
  5. Under "Make changes to your user account" click on the "Change security settings" link.
    disable_uac_5.gif
  6. In the "Turn on User Account Control (UAC) to make your computer more secure" click to unselect the "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer". Click on the Ok button.
    disable_uac_6.gif
  7. You will be prompted to reboot your computer. Do so when ready.
    disable_uac_7.gif
In order to re-enable UAC just select the above checkbox and reboot.

When I log off my laptop ( hp pavilion dv5 1225ee) every thing be closed


I hope I can help!

This is a normal function in computers. When you log off, you are essentially shutting down your account. Everything should shutdown, including all of your programs. If you do not want this to happen, you probably want to either use the "standby" mode or just "switch users" instead of logging off. You still will want to shut your laptop down regularly as you would anyways, but this might help you in some situations.

I hope that helps!

Someone got on my laptop and did not log out. how do I let another guest sign on to get their email?


If the laptop is locked by that user, just power down the laptop by holding down the power button for 6 seconds, it will shut down.

If not, just log that user off and have someone else login.

You could also switch users instead of log off.

There are a few ways to do this.
Method 1 Create a new user account, making sure to give the user Admin access. Once you create this new user, log into the new user account and delete the old user. This is the quickest and easiest way(this works best with 10.5, if you're running 10.4 or earlier try method 2.)
Method 2 Take the install disc and reboot your computer with the disk in the drive. On start up, hold the "c" button. Now you can re-install the operating so you can have a clean start. (if you don't have the install dvd, refer to Method 3)
Method 3 Delete all the unnecessary applications, once done create a new user with admin privileges. Log in with this account and delete the old account. This way you won't have any of the programs you don't want and the new user will have factory account settings. As close as you can get to a fresh start.
No matter what method you choose, be sure to back up important information.

My laptop won't shut down properly!


Is it possible that you have changed the settings of what buttons do what on your system? E.g. you could have changed the power button to "switch user" instead of "shut down", to check this (in XP) go to "Power Options" (in Control Panel" and then click on the "Advanced tab" at the top, then select "Shut down" from the drop down menu at the bottom of the window.

If this is already set to shut down then maybe you could do a system restore in case another setting has been changed, restore it to before the PC started doing this.

Alternatively try actually choosing "Turn off Computer" from the Log On screen (press Ctrl + L to get to this screen, or choose switch user/log off). If you are using Vista I beleive that there is a shut-down option from the Log In Page there (which again you can access by pressing Ctrl + L on the keyboard.

Hope this helps!

Logging Off and won't come back on what to do


You can shut it down hard (by holding the power button until it shuts off), wait at least 10 seconds (for your hard drive to stop spinning) then start it up and then try shutting down windows normally instead of just closing the laptop's lid. You can then go into user accounts and delete all accept for your Administrative account (even Guest account), and see if that cures your ills.
Good Luck.
