-forgot password-


well if it is truly a new computer, then may I suggest calling manufactures support? most are very helpful. I have allways gone into bios, where you will find an option to edit/ remove administrator password. for bios you will probably have to hit F5 or escape while the computer is booting up, and before it loads windows

A few months ago my acer aspire 5100, all 3 usb ports stopped working. Now my computer does not even start. I have tried switching it on... somtimes the speaker makes scratchy noises otherwise no such...


It does sound like a complete motherboard failure, do you have a recovery disc for the laptop? remove the hard drive and leave it out, remove one stick of ram, remove the main battery, and remove the wireless card. Now fire up the computer to see if the acer logo comes up and then it should go to blank screen with the cursor blinking, if it works to this point, turn off computer. Now install the hard drive and load the recovery disc, make sure the boot sequence is set to start the dvd driver first, if everything works and you have full control we are starting to get somewhere, if it fails, this is where I would change the hard drive and see if that makes the difference, if it does, replace the ram and wireless card back into position, and last the main battery. If all this fails it leaves the motherboard as the problem. one thing I forgot to mention swap out the ram if windows freezes.

Windows Vista freezes while loading up& Blue Vertical Bars appear


Hi

Reflashing the bios doesn't make any difference.

Check in the BIOS Screen whether notebook scree has the same issue if it is the same then it is a hardware issue if it is fine in the bios screen then need to run the hdd and memory test

After the test result we can decide next steps

> If hdd and memory test passes - then reload the os.

To login to bios - Reboot the system and keep tap on f10

Qosmio uses bios setting to configure the raid type for the HDD set up. this is not dependant on have two HDDs in you laptop. When bootining the laptop enter the bios setup F2 (I think not on a toshiba right now) check and reset the raid configuration for the drives. I am asuming you are using the origional recovery disks for your qosmio. If not you need to aquire a usb floppydrive and the raid drivers for you laptop iin order to install windows of any kind on this laptop.
