Unplug all external devices. Remove the battery and ac adapter. Then try again with just the ac adapter and no battery. If it works, turn it off and put the battery back in. Everything should be fine.

What your daughter did is absolutely harmless, unless your laptop is set-up not to go to standby mode then eventually hibernate when the lid is closed. In that case if it was put into a laptop bag while running it may have overheated. If that's the case it may need a motherboard or CPU, have it checked out.

I press f8 when starting but unable to get into safe mode. I have windows 7 OS on an ASUS A52F.


You have to tap F8 Repeatedly right after the initial splash screen goes away. Then it will come up with a menu for you to choose Safe Mode.

I can not log into my hp mini because I forgot the password is there way to log into it without a floppy disk/flash drive.


You didn't say what version of windows you use. With some versions you can bypass the password in the safe mode. When the computer starts press F8 until it starts to beep. This gives you the option of starting in safe mode. When you get to the screen where you should put in the password you get the option to log in as administrator with no password required. Log in, go to control panel, find your username and change or delete the password.

If you cannot get in this way there is a program available from http://www.windows-password-recovery.net/ which costs 36 euros or 49 dollars. When you pay for it you get the option to download an image file which you burn to a cd. You can then boot any windows computer with this cd and it gives you the option to delete the log on password without going into windows. You then remove the cd and restart windows with no password.

Problem of not connecting to the internet.


Your laptop frewall settings should be controlled. You may have two firewalls. One is dealing with Windows firewall, other one is dealing with your modem firewall settings. Check the both please.

Checking the firewalls:
Step 1 : open this address http://192.168.1.1 Log in with your admin password. Check the firewall settings. This will solve the problem. Or.
Step 2 Start/Desktop Manager/Security Center/Firewall

This will solve your problem I hope.

I cannot log on to computer, dont know password


try starting in safe mode(press power button like turning on normally then tapping F8 when the screen shows dell on it). choose safe mode. put administrator in as thu username and leave password blank. hopefully it works. if it does get you into the system i think you can go to control panel and then user accounts. you should be able to see the other user names there and you can delete passwords too. then you can restart and log on normally hopefully

Unable to unlock screen


The A with a lock icon is the symbol for the capslock. maybe the reason why you cannot log back on is that it's not accepting your password because you have the caps lock on.
