How do i get to System administrator so i can turn it off so i can change things on my computer

Step 1:
A systems administrator title comes with interesting job functions, a good salary and a fair amount of respect. However, that title can cover a lot of ground and varies from company to company in its exact duties. Systems administrators manage, build and maintain some of a business' most critical computer systems.

Read a broad selection of computing resources. There are many types of systems administrators and also many types of systems. To understand which kinds of systems you want to work with and how they interact with others, you need to have a high-level understanding of them all. Make sure to cover Windows, Unix (Linux) and networking systems. Determine which kind of systems you would be most interested in working with. You may eventually work with many types of systems, but most sysadmins start out working on one specific type of system. Read books dedicated to training administrators. These books are different than other computer system books in that they will focus on the kinds of tasks that computer administrators are required to do. These books can also prepare you to pass certification exams. Build up experience. Because systems administrators have unlimited access to some of the most critical computer systems, it is rare for someone with no experience to be hired as a systems administrator. However, it may be possible at small businesses where the systems administrator is usually also the help desk person, and the desktop support person, and so on. Doing everything helps build experience quickly. Get certified. Certification is not required, but it may help open doors or get you more interviews, especially if you have less experience. Certification is a way to prove that you understand the complexities of systems administration (see Below). Apply for systems administrator positions online. As high-tech positions, most admins are hired via either job websites or other online communities such as LinkedIn.

How can i unlock my keyboard

Recognize that you have a locked keyboard.

If your PC computer is not responding to keystrokes or is responding very slowly, you could have a locked keyboard.

Use your mouse to move the pointer over the "Start" button.

Use the left-click button to bring up the "Start" pop-up menu.

Position the pointer over "Settings" and use the left-click button to select. T

hen select "Control Panel." On some versions of PC operating systems, you can select "Control Panel" directly from the "Start" menu.

Select "Accessibility Options" to bring up another menu, then select "Keyboard."

You'll see three options that have check boxes.

Make sure each check box does not have a check mark in it.

The three options are "StickeyKeys," "FilterKeys" and "ToggleKeys."

Note that these options can become checked if the keyboard operator has repeatedly depressed the "Shift" key in rapid succession--or if the "Shift" key is held down for longer than eight seconds.

If the keyboard is still not responding, the problem could be that the computer has lost communication with the keyboard.

Turn off the computer.

Disconnect the power supply.

Remove and then reconnect the keyboard cable, then reconnect the power supply.

Turn the computer on.

This will reboot the computer, allowing it to recognize the keyboard.

hope this helps

I Need helpseeting an adminstrator account up on a used computer

Open control panel and create a new user account with administrator privileges. Log off the previous user and logon to the one you just created. Then delete the original user and this should set everything as default for you the new user.

If the password prompt is in a browser ie, Internet explorer or Firefox you will need to remove the addon (sounds like parental controls).

The only way of changing the registered owner would be to complete a fresh install of windows.

Adminstrative Rights

Try booting into safe mode and log in as Administrator. From there you can go to Control Panel and edit any user account you have on computer.

System Administrator

As for logging in as Administrator try leaving the password area blank and that should get you in. As for the Control Panel Icon, if it's not showing up in your start menu you can open it's properties and through the customization function you can add it again.
