Try holding down the shift key after you hear the startup chime. This should start the Mac in Safe Mode and force some cleanup utilities to run. (Note that startup takes a bit longer than usual in Safe Mode.)
The login screen should show the words Safe Mode in red when startup is done. You can then restart and the Mac should boot normally.

My toshiba laptop keyboard is locked. Oddly, it's not locked log IN to windows 7, but it won't let me type once I'm logged in. I'ts a p755. It seems to work fine in linux as well.

Its definitely an issue with some programs which loads only after windows is completely loaded. It maybe the drivers acting up or some other malicious programs which is trying to hinder with the functioning of your keyboard. Try uninstalling the keyboard drivers and restart the computer. Let me know how that goes.

Trying to reboot my hp compaq nc6320 and i cant figure it out, how do i even get the process started

Hello and welcome to FixYa,

Rebooting is simply pressing the power key to turn the computer off.

Wait one minute,

press the start button again and let the computer completely power up.

If you would like to try to 'reset' the computer;

Unplug the computer from the wall,

turn computer over and take out the battery.

Press the power button for one full minute.

Put the battery back in, then plug in the power cord (in that order).

Press power button again and let computer start up completely.

Let me know how this worked out for you. If my solution helped you, please rate this solution!
It doesn't cost anything and only takes a second, but it is greatly appreciated.

If you need further help, reach me via phone at

Put the error code in google and it will give u a picture of what exactly is going on the computer.
