In any case, easiest option would be to just add a password - assuming its XP or even Vista, you should find User Accounts under Control Panel (Start -> Control Panel -> User Accounts). Simply add a password to what ever account is available. If you want people to still use the computer, but with a locked down account, you could either create a new "Limited Account" OR you could turn on the "Guest Account." Either way, the user has locked down privileges that doesn't let them install anything, or screw with your account. So, course of action - add a password and enable the guest account, and you should be set. Hope I helped.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

As far as I know, there are a lot of tools and utilities that can be downloaded and used to recover, retrieve, reset windows password. However, I've tried a couple of these utilities through the years. The free software can help you, but you have to learn some computer skills and waste a lot time on learning. If you want to save more time, maybe Google third party password recovery tool or Google Window Password Seeker can help you.
These are possible solutions:
1. connect an external/portable dvd drive to the usb port and you can run the installation cd from that drive.
2. copy the installation cd to your usb flash drive and install it from your usb flash drive.
3. connect your notebook to another pc within a network and share the dvd drive of that pc and run the installation cd from there.
1. turn off computer 2. unplug power cable 3. hold down power button for 3 seconds 4. remove side panel 5. locate jumper in JP1 and remove it 6. plug in power cable 7. power on computer and enter bios - should be clear 8. save and exit 9. repeat steps 1-3 10. reconnect jp1 11. put side panel back on 12. repeat steps 6-7 to verify bios password is gone
It depends on the laptop and the software. If the laptop does not have an optical drive, either download the software (many companies will let you buy the software as a download with an extra fee for either a CD/DVD sent in addition or an "download again if needed") or get an external optical drive (USB). Some of these drives use an external power brick; others are powered by USB and take 2 USB ports. The prices for the USB powered optical drives is ~$50.
If you downloaded the software, unzip the file(s) if needed then right click on the installer and select Run As Administrator. (With some software, do not let the program run when the install is finished. It can get locked to always launch the UAC to check if you are the administator.) With the external optical drive, you would install the software as you do with an internal optical drive (either auto-run or manually access the drive and find the executable file).
Hope for the best and assume that some files got corrupted at the time of the power failure. So try getting into BIOS, the objective being doing something besides putting in a PCI Card with USB ports or buying another motherboard.
Shut down and/or restart the computer.
When the DELL logo appears, press <F12> immediately.
Now if the computer takes you to the BIOS we are half way there. Key board is working, motherboard is working, and USB port is working.
When the boot device list appears, highlight CD/DVD/CD-RW and press
1. Select the Boot from CD-ROM option from the menu that appears and
2. Type 1 to start the CD menu and press <Enter> to proceed.
3.Select Run the 32 Bit Dell Diagnostics from the numbered list.
Other wise, save and exit after step 2.
If the above (first 2) steps works, you may want to go forward.
The next part is tricky.
Get hold of a working computer with internet. open google. In the search box type puppy linux. download the latest version. It will be an iso file. Simply burn it to a CD.
Put the CD in it your computer drive (power on. immediately press the eject button of your CD Rom drive . Put the CD in . The computer boots from puppy linux. It may come up with 2 or 3 questions. Just answer yes to the default selections. If the system completes booting, you will see a perfectly usable OS. You can possible check anything you want, if you successful in getting this done.
there are many programs out there that can clear off passwords, and you can even use a flash drive to do it. so u just simply put the files on the flash drive.. pop it into the locked pc, restart the pc and then follow the directions on the program. I will not say the names of these programs as people can use them maliciously
Dude,Its very simple. Its nothing to worry. You havent used your DVD
drive so frequently. There might be dust, debris or other contaminants
from the laser lens that may cause skipping while write process. Get
PHILIPS DVD Lens cleaner and run it once. Your problem will be solved.
I was facing the same problem for a weeks time, when my friend suggested me this.It worked well.
sometimes the usb ports are not set to auto connect so you have to find them manually.. if you goto start then to my computer you will see all your ports and find the one that you are trying to use then right click on it and make sure the settings are set to run a disk once it's inserted..
you can also goto start then run, if using xp, and browse for that usb port that way too.. let me know if this helps at all, if not, i can try something else.. you can do a repair on your ports too but let's see if this helps.. good luck..d
