You need to either push the button or slide the button on the front. Then open the lid. That's all there is to it.

How to troubleshoot a computer when it sudden turned off with many websites opened


Hi,

If your computer turns off suddenly when you open two or more websites, you might wanna check the following:

1. Scan for virus on your computer.
2. Try to boot into Safe Mode with Networking (you need to press F8 continuously upon boot-up and choose Safe Mode with Networking) and try to check if issue still occurs.
3. If Step 2 fixes the issue, try to disable start-up items that might be causing the issue, step by step guide here.
4. If Step 2 fails and gives you the same issue, you might wanna try doing a System System Restore (if it was working before, step by step guide here or factory restore (you need to press F2 upon boot-up for built-in recovery - backup important files first before proceeding)
5. If all of the above fails, check if the computer is overheating. If it does, you need to have the computer serviced. Call Lenovo Customer Support at 1-877-453-6686.

Additional Troubleshooting Steps can be found here.

Cheers.

My wireless light stay orange while in the on position


This issue could be due to corrupt wireless drivers or corrupt BIOS settings or hardware malfunction of the wireless card. To isolate the issue, perform the steps provided below.

NOTE: If your notebook model is HP Pavilion DV6449US PC Notebook, then only perform the below steps. If your notebook model is different, then I recommend you to not to update BIOS and install the wireless.

Step 1: Uninstall and reinstall wireless drivers
Please follow the steps listed below to uninstall the wireless drivers from the notebook:
1. Click Start.
2. Type Device Manager in the Start Search box,
3. Click Device Manager from the results list to open Device Manager window. .
4. Now click the plus sign (+) next to Network adapters to display the installed adapters.
5. Right click on the Wireless LAN adapter(if listed) and select Uninstall. When
prompted, click OK to confirm removal.
6. Follow onscreen instructions to complete uninstallation process.
7. Restart the notebook. The system will reinstall the generic drivers during startup.
Follow the instructions on the Startup Wizard.
Now download and install the latest drivers for the Wireless network adapter from the web link provided below:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp41501-42000/sp41675.exe

NOTE: Clicking the link may give an error indicating it is invalid.
Copy and paste the entire link in a new browser window.
Installation Instructions:
1. Download the Softpaq .EXE file to a directory on your hard drive.
2. Execute the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions.

Step 2: Update BIOS

Download and install BIOS update on the notebook from the web link provided below.

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp42501-43000/sp42854.exe

NOTE: Clicking the link may give an error indicating it is invalid.
Copy and paste the entire link in a new browser window.
Installation Instructions:
1. Download the Softpaq .EXE file to a directory on your hard drive.
2. Execute the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions.

If the issue persists even after performing the above steps, then I recommend you to remove and reseat the wireless network adapter of the notebook and then check for the issue. To do this, you can refer the service manual provided below:

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01035677.pdf

Refer page no: 135 & 136
NOTE: PDF manuals require the Adobe Acrobat Reader for viewing and printing.
Now check for the issue with the wireless light indicator. If the issue persists, then it is clear that the issue is due to hardware malfunction of the wireless network adapter on the notebook and it requires a detailed onsite diagnosis by a service technician.

I hope the information provided would be helpful to resolve the issue with your notebook.

Bio password for hp dv2000


Ain't Google wonderful !

I found this on the internet about clearing your HP BIOS password. You download a file called "unlock6.zip" from the following url location, using the Free User tab (click on Free User to start download). This is a zip file with a word document and the .exe file. This is how it says to use it:

How to Use:

If the notebook you are servicing has an unknown password, follow these steps to clear the password. These steps also clear CMOS:


1. Enter an incorrect password and press enter.
2. Repeat Step 1 two times.
After the third entry of the incorrect password, the notebook responds with a "system Disabled" message and provides an override password.
3. On working computer, access MS/DOS by clicking Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt.
4. Change directories to C:\Swsetup\Unlock6
5. Enter "unlock6 xxxxx 0", where "xxxxx" is the password generated by the notebook in Step 2.
The notebook responds with another system-generated password.
This password can be used to unlock the notebook and reset the password.
*Detailed usage and support information can be found by reviewing the included “readme.txt” file.
