SOURCE: Slammed ZToshiba A135-2276 will not boot

I'm not sure why you slammed the system shut, bu if it was to do with a system performance issue, the most likely answer is that the hard disk drive is or has failed.

If running Windows XP, boot to recovery console, see if you can run chkdsk on the drive. If Vista, boot to the DVD and run repair my computer.

Most likely, if those options do not get the system to boot, a hard drive replacement may be in the cards.

SOURCE: Can't start windows: Hard Drive - No drive detected

The laptop cannot see/detect the hard drive. This means the hard drive is faulty or it needs reaeating.
Remove the hard drive and inserting again, then reboot the laptop, if it still cannot detect the hard drive then it is faulty.
You need to purchase a new one and install Windows on the new hard drive.

Once I change bios password, how do i use it to change password at start up/user screen? Fujitsu lifebook model b6220 (windows installed).

Bios password is completely separate to windows password. The BIOS is Basic Input Output System and runs when you first switch the laptop on, performing a POST operation. Once the POST is finished, windows starts loading up from disk.

If you need to reset a windows password, for example if you have forgotten it, then you need to use a bootable Linux password reset utility. There is a free password reset utility which is part of the ultimate boot cd and can be downloaded as an iso file and burned to cd on a separate computer. Once the CD is created, put it into your laptop and boot up the system. Use the menus to choose under file utilities, Offline NT Password Tool and it will allow you to reset the password of whichever account you choose

You can try resetting your Windows winsock and TCP/IP settings

Winsock Reset in Windows 7
  1. Open the Start menu by clicking the orb in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen.
  2. Type "cmd" in the search bar at the bottom of the menu.
  3. Right-click on cmd in the search results for Programs, and select Run as administrator. Depending on your computer settings, you may be asked to provide an administrator password before you can continue.

  4. A black box with a flashing cursor will open; this is the Command Prompt. Type "netsh winsock reset" and then hit the Enter key on your keyboard. >
  5. Wait for the Command Prompt to run through the reset. Once it's complete, you'll see the message "Winsock reset completed successfully".
  6. Restart your computer to finish.

Forgot passwords on laptop

Hey, Judy. I'll be telling you how to reset your password on your operating system. I'd like to add that I haven't used Windows Vista in a very long time so excuse any minor mistakes I make. :)

So before you get started, it might be helpful to write down the steps of this guide as you won't be able to keep your computer on to do this.
If this is a computer that your work/school was provided, bring it to the technical department there, as they may have precautions that don't allow for this.

  1. Shut down your computer completely.
  2. Press your power button on your computer and start repeatedly pressing the "F8" key on your keyboard until a menu pops up. Make sure you start as soon as you press the power button. It might be a bit hard at first and it is perfectly fine if you have to turn off your computer and start again.
  3. Once you are on the black menu, use your arrow keys to select "Boot in Safe Mode"
  4. Once the computer boots into safe mode, click "Administrator".
  5. Once logged in, click the Windows Logo.
  6. Type "Control Panel' and press enter.
  7. Click "User Accounts and Family Safety", what it is called may vary slightly just use logic to discern what it is.
  8. Click "User Accounts"
  9. Find your account and click on it.
  10. Click "Change Password" and fill in the forum and click "Apply Changes" or something to that effect
  11. Reboot your computer and startup normally, you should be able to log in with your new password.
If you need further help feel free to comment on this answer and I'll try to get back to you. ;)

I have a presario cq61 and have forgot my password can u help

Try starting the computer in safe mode. Turn on the computer and once the COMPAQ screen clears press F8 a few times - don't hold down the key however. Winodws stops loading at teh Startup Options screen (black, text only). From that menu use the cursor keys and ENTER to select "Safe Mode". Once Windows loads (it may look humungous!), login as the Administrator (which should now be visible). Use this account to reset your forgotten user password. Restart once complete - the computer will automatically start normally.

>Now, click on Start.
>Type System Restore on the Start Search bar.
>Hit Enter.
>On the System Restore window, Hit Next
>Select a date from the Restore Points saved.
>Select the date when you know the computer was working fine. (maybe 3-5 days will do)
>Then click on Finish or Continue or Next.
>Your computer will restart.
>Don't do anything with it, wait for it to load everything back.
>If it prompts you to login with your password, type the password in.
>It should accept your password and windows should load normally.

That's it! It's not your fault. It happens once in a while especially if a windows update is not compatible or has not completed successfully. We can't prevent this from happening but rest assured that next time it happens, you know what to do. This happens, let's say once or twice in the life of a computer. Have fun! Thank you for choosing FixYa!

It sounds to me like you have a bug. You should try to get into the control panel when the computer "allows" you to, and click on "System Maintenance". Once in the system maintenance menu, click on "Back-up and Restore Center". In this menu you can choose to restore your computer to an earlier date. By restoring your computer, you could get rid of any "bug" or change that occured to your computer before the problems started.
