Hi,

due to fixyas terms and conditions, this information can not and should not be posted on the forums.
this is due to obvious legalities, of who the laptop actually belongs to ?
The person in charge or purchaser of the item, should have any relevant information to unlock any security passwords. Newer style laptops actually have security chips on board, which can only be unlocked or passwords provided by the legitimate owner of the item, or by contacting the manufacturer for an unlock password. i,d suggest that you contact your client for this information.

Thankyou for using fixya.

I can not open computer. I need password bios. I forgot the password.


Bios passwords can be reset by draining power completely. remove all power sources, open it up, pull out the CMOS battery, and hold the power button (10 seconds) to drain any residual charge. Turn it on and the password should be disabled

Can I upgrade my 80 gb intel core 2 dual hdd to 120 on flybook V5


Hi there, yes you can upgrade your 80GB to 120GB hard drive on your Flybook V5. Toshiba makes a great drive for this. If you need instructions or help however, I was able to get all my questions answered by emailing info@flybooksupport.com . I could not get through to anyone at Flybook directly however. :o(

Tablet turns off wwan. per fcc reg, turning screen to tablet mode cuts off wwan & wlan connectivity.


Hi there. Yes this is a known issue. You can go to the Flybook website ( www.flybook.com ) and download the latest BIOS flash. This flash will take care of WWAN and other radios in tablet mode. Let us know if that helped. Your problem is however, completely resolved with a BIOS flash.

Backlight on Flybook V5


Hi Piergiorgio,

Nothing in the registry or BIOS however, in the Flybook control center, you can manually set your brightness on the system and turn off auto backlight. That way the system will always turn on and your system will always remember the setting of the back light.

Let us know if that helps!

I need to upgrade ram memory in flybook V5 from 2 gb to 4 gb. How to do it?


If you are unsure of how to install memory, I would take your system to a repair shop and have them do it for you.

this system will support 4gb of ram, but what you have to buy depends on what you already have installed.

If you have a single 2gb stick, that's easy....buy another 2gb and have it installed. if you have two 1gb sticks....then you would have to purchase two 2gb sticks to upgrade.

How can add 1gb memory on my Flybook VM.Thankyou


It seems that you will need to contact the manf. directly for this. I am assuming it is not just a matter of opening a door to upgrade the RAM, most likely have to take the entire thing apart.

"Hello, just letting everyone know, if the system is disassembled outside of the service center, your warranty can no longer be covered.
If anyone needs a service upgrade or RAM upgrade, just contact Flybook techncal support. Email is: nasupport@flybook.com"
