Just go through it and delete everything left behind.

if you want to do a complete format and reinstall then you can use any A100 system disc (borrow one?) download one from the link below.

With some Toshiba models you an burn a recovery DVD from the XP software. Look in programs/ accessories,system tools or use the built in HELP for any info

I just bought a laptop from the pawnshop and it has a password lock. how do you restore a computer to factory condition?


This laptop could have been stolen property, that is why there is a password lock.
I suggest you take it back to the pawn shop and get your money back.

Bought a gateway laptop fm pawnshop already locked. Need a code to unlock


The pawnshop should have the code as they bought the item. If they do a simple phone call should get you the information you need.
If they do not have the code report them for bad business as the laptop may have been stolen. (Why else would they not have access to the code?) Even if it was bought legit they sold it to you without a code to access you item. (Your not going to buy a locked safe are you?)
The only way I know to get past a locked computer is to reinstall the OS (Most likely Windows)
This is complicated and should only be done by someone who know how. There may bve other ways but I am not aware of them. Good Luck, and call that pawn shop!!!

How can i unlock my garmin nuvi 200. what steps do i have to do to access my garmin.i bought my garmin from a friend who got it at a pawnshop.and its asking me for a pin that i do not have.can you help me?


Since you bought the device used, it's likely the previous owner did not clear the passwords and data. Short of tracking down the previous owner, there is no way to unlock the unit without doing a factory reset. Here's a guide to reset the Garmin GPS units to their original factory settings.

A full "factory restore" involves booting to the restore CDs (or hard drive sys restore partion, used by some manufactors) and following the manufactors instructions.
A Factory restore will result in all DATA being wiped, it really does mean "like the day it left the factory".

Hdd password reset


Hi,
Laptops have the option to password protect for security purposes. If the laptop should be lost-stolen. this is to ensure your personnal data, cannot be accessed by any tom dick and harry.
Post your laptop model number, and i,ll see if anything can be done.
i do not endorse password removal, as the majority of the time, a user cannot prove that the laptop actually belongs to them.
I,d also feel happier if you could also prove in any way, that you are the legal owner of the laptop in question.
