Unlock CURRENT password on acer 250 netbook on ubuntu


Try these steps it worked for me it can work for you:

1. You’ll need to boot from your Ubuntu Live CD, choosing “Try Ubuntu without any change to your computer” from the boot menu.
2. Once the system boots, open up a new Terminal window from Applications \ Accessories and then type in the following command:

sudo fdisk -l (minus small leter L)

3. Now you’ll need to create a directory to mount the hard drive on. Since we’re actually booting off the live cd, the directory doesn’t really get created anywhere. then type

sudo mkdir /media/sda1

4.The next command will mount the hard drive in the /media/sda1 folder.

sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/sda1

5. The command that actually does the trick is: chroot.
it is used to open up a shell with a different root directory than the current shell is using, and we’ll pass in the folder where we mounted the hard drive.

sudo chroot /media/sda1

6. Now you can be able to use the passwd command to change your user account’s password, and it will be applied to the hard drive since we are using chroot.

7. passwd 12345

Note: you’ll need to type your username after the passwd command in order to change the right password.

8. Now you should be able to reboot your system and log yourself in with your new password.

I have an old laptop HDD that i am going to connect to my desktop computer via a laptop IDE hard drive adapter ive recently bought. My laptop HDD is bigger than my internal HDD on my desktop. Can i use my...


Hallo

I am pretty sure you can do that.You just need a conversion cable for the internal IDE cable which is in your computer. So, if i were you, i would just go to the nearest Computer hardware shop and ask them about the cable you need. I know you can also boot from a USB device. Just remember that this will slow down your computer if you boot from a USB device.

If you find the cable you need, just remember that you need to set the jumpers on the back of each HDD, laptop drive primary and computer drive secondary.

Best regards.

STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error} .. 0xc0000005


The first thing you should do is back up the HDD, Remove the HDD from your Laptop, you find the lid that opens the HDD access slot under the laptop or ask someone who knows how. if available there are aftermarket 2.5 HD enclosures that lets you install the 2.5 in.hdd of your laptop via a usb. you can plug the usb to a desktop PC and backup your files. then reformat your hdd. reinstall the hdd to your laptop. replace your memory ram which causes the blue screen with a new ram, reinstall the OS.

How i transfer data from window to linux


Depending on your linux distrobution, you will need to check the /etc/samba or /etc/smb configuration file, within that file there will be a place to set your windowsfile sharing password. then you will be able to transfer data across the local network between your linux / windows machine again..

however, if you've actually changed the password for the linux user account that enabled the samba file sharing, you will need to either remember that password, or set a new one from the root account byt typing the following command in a terminal / bash / shell session:

Task: Set or change user password Type passwd command as follows>
$ passwd <user>

Output: Changing password for <user>
Enter new password:
Retype new password:
passwd: password updated successfully
NOTE: when typing the password, you may not see the password you are typing..
You need to replace <user> with the username you are changing the password for.
