Do you know how to reset the operator/admin passwords on an IBM DS 400? Cable didn't work.


System (BIOS) Password Reset

If you have forgotten your BIOS or system password, there are no software tricks or magical gimmicks that will get the password cleared. Laptops are different in that they are designed to not work with “backdoors” etc. for security reasons. There is one true way that works most of the time and that is hardware.
The Cmos (RTC) battery that is mounted on the motherboard in most cases holds the key, if your motherboard has the battery that is connected to the motherboard by using a two wire socket that plugs into the MOBO, then here is the procedure.
On the motherboard where the battery plugs into, you will see two pins sticking straight up, these engage the plug on the battery side. These two pins have to be “shorted” and then the motherboard powered up for approx. 30 seconds, then power down the system and replace the Cmos battery and reboot. Your password problem should be cleared up. The best way to “short” the pins is get another cmos battery and cut the wires from the battery part, bare the ends and twist together, this will short the pins. Make sure you tape the connection good on the jumper you just made….don’t want to touch anything else with powered up bare wires. Good luck.

you'll need to pry the screen gently forward(away from the plastic casing)...along the side s of the screen will be the hinge brackets.....4 screws (2 either side) hold the screen in place...undo these screws and the screen will be free....the only thing connecting screen to computer will be the video ribbon cable which connects to the back of the screen via a plastic pressure clip...release the clip and your done.....remember to be very careful when installing the new screen as its easy to overtighten the screws and damage the screen

Memory Installation


look at the hardware documentation and look for a bios reset switch.. that should make the pc usable again.. then i would suggest.. trying a slower ram module.. ie 2300 might work..

Re: Prestigio Laptop


Well as you have already reinstalled the windows than the next thing would be to get the keyboard replaced as there could be an issue with the keyboard itself.Also try connecting a external keyboard if you have and see if that works.Contact your manufacturer to get it replaced.

Toshiba Magnia SG20


do you have an admin icon on your desktop?
if not type in the ip addx 192.168.1.1 and see if you go to the admin.
on network connections , right click on my network places, click map network drive,
select a drive letter and then browse for the two folders on the "myserver" select one of them and click apply or ok. the drive will show up in mycopmuter do the same for the other folders
as far as the log in is concerned it is best to set a level 3 user name and pw on the server then do the same user name and pw for a new windows login user.

My Toshiba laotp's screen goes half blank help!!


Well try to boot into the safe mode.hit F8 on the startup and see if you get the same acreen.If its working fine in safe mode than you need to reinstall the video driver and that should resolve the issue.If it is still not working try connecting a external moniter.If you get the same display on the external moniter than its an issue with the video card and if you get a normal display on that than its an issue with the Laptop screen and you would ahve to get either of thses replaced by contacting the manufacturer.
Hope this helps!

DVR won't turn on


If think it has been zapped - then you nor any one else will fix it. Actually this looks like loss of signal. So check out the aerial connections.

Keyboard detection problem


if the kb works on another system then the ribbion is ok, right?, the port on the motherboard is broken, which is almost certainly integrated(soldered to the board with no wires in between) which means to replace just the port you need to get a desoldering tool and cloth and a soldering iron(do not use a gun, they are not as acurate when working with this small of a space) and of course some solder, not to mention the replacement part or a more seriously broken laptop with the same part that you can take apart, seems like a lot of work to resurect a laptop, i would suggest a new board, new laptop or get a usb kb, maybe one of those rollup ones they sell on thinkgeek.com so you can retain some of the protablity, then again since the onboard kb is not functional it just sorta becomes deskspace for an external one. the fastest cheapest fix would be an external keyboard, next time i would recomend knowing what you are doing a little better before working on a valueable system or any that you cannot afford to loose, I see people break the ribbion cables and connectors all the time when working on laptops, its usualy because they dont know how to open the clips on the connectors, anyways try to be more careful next time
