Remove hdd password


You can change it but not 'remove' it. Simplest is to use '00000' as the default password.
Instructions
1 Shut down your computer.
2 Press the power button on your computer. While it is booting, press F2 repeatedly (do not just hold it down) until you arrive at a system screen showing a series of
options. This screen is called the BIOS Setup.

3 Use the down arrow key on your keyboard to scroll down to "Security" in the left-hand column.
4 Arrow right to display a sub-menu under Security in the left-hand column.
5 Arrow down to "Internal HD PW" in the left-hand column. (That stands for Internal Hard Drive Password.)
6 Delete the old password (if any) and, in the same box, enter a new password of at least four characters in length in the main screen at right.
7 Write the password down and keep it in a safe place.
8 Hit Enter.
9 Hit the Escape button on your keyboard to exit the Internal HD PW menu, then hit Escape again to proceed to the Exit screen of the BIOS Setup.
10 Arrow right to save the changes you made to the password, then hit Enter on your keyboard to exit the BIOS Setup.
11 Restart your computer and use the password you created in the BIOS Setup to gain access to your hard drive.

Water damaged Laptop


Attaching an external keyboard does not help because the keyboard controller is damaged.
I recommend you put your money towards a new laptop as the cost of repair maybe too expensive or beyond repair. Most computer repair shop charge for a quote and may drop this charge if you go ahead with the repair.
If the hard disk is OK then I suggest you remove it from the laptop and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive for backups and data transfer etc.

Need to do a system restore


You can try by going to help by the start buttton and searching on restore/recovery and doing so. Or you can go to start, control panel and looking to see if there is a restore\recovery icon. Lastly you would have to reinstall your operating system by putting in the cd and rebooting after pressing F2 and selecting boot from CD. This WILL cause all user data to be lost so if you need it, it must be backed up first.

Hi - my computer automatically shut down while I was online and kept telling me that the hard drive was at capacity.... - it wouldn't even let me control the volume without it saying something was wrong. ...


The hard drive has picked up a virus and corrupted window or the hard drive is defective, if you have the proper recovery disc give it a try, if it works you will have a fresh install of windows and you will know the hard drive is good.

SCREEN FROZE TRIED TOREBOOT HARD DRIVE WILL NOT TURN ON


Ok well try actually turning off the computer not using the hardboot button but the wires are connected to a power strip or surge protector right? Well on those there is a switch which you can press and it stops any electricity from flowing into your computer which shuts down your comp. Also many people don't know but when you "turn of your computer" it's really on standby because when you press that button it is waiting for that to be pressed. The only way to fully shut down your computer is to stop all electricity from flowing to the computer. Hope that helped :)

I can't eject a dvd from my mac pro desktop


Try these tips.....usually holding down the touchpad buttton while tapping the eject button during bootup works.

picexporterror Shut down the computer and start up whilst holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared.
picexporterror If you have Toast Titanium installed on your computer, choose EJECT DISC from the menubar.
picexporterror Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder
picexporterror Open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button.
picexporterror Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism.
picexporterror Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray.
picexporterror Restart the computer while holding down Command-Option-O-F, to enter the Open Firmware prompt. Type "eject cd" without the quotes, and press return. The disk ought to eject. To start into OS X, type "mac-boot" without the quotes. Press return, and the computer will continue with the startup. (This will not work on an Intel Mac. There is no Open Firmware on Intel Macs. )
picexporterror If your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button.
