Unblockfacebook


Blocking another user's Facebook account ensures that she will no longer see any of your profile information or be allowed to communicate with you via the site. The process is not permanent, and you can easily unblock a person so that you can see each other on the site again. Note that unblocking someone does not restore a previous friendship -- you must ask to be her friend again if you want full access to her profile. Specific applications may also be blocked and unblocked.

1.Go to the "Account" link at the top of any Facebook screen and click "Privacy Settings" from the menu that appears.

2.Scroll down to the "Block Lists" group and click the "Edit your lists" link.

3.Click the "Unblock" link next to a user's name in the "Block users" section to remove her account from your block list. Scroll down to the "Blocked apps" section and click "Unblock" next to the name of an application to remove it from your blocked apps.

It's asking for a puk code and i have no idea what to do


Dear Rockerman07:
A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from AT&T to unlock your SIM card.

You can obtain your phone's PUK code from AT&T in one of these ways:

To get your phone's PUK code online:
  1. Log in to myAT&T.
  2. From the myAT&T tab at the top of the page, hover over the Wireless link and select Phone/Device under the My Wireless Service heading.
  3. From the My Phone/Device screen, select the Unblock SIM Card link under the My Make & Model heading.
  4. The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code and will give you instructions for unblocking your SIM Card.

Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code

Thank You Margon65

Validation code for windows 7 basic


You need to contact Dell tech support about that.
You shouldn't have been asked to activate it first of all, because there's a setting in the BIOS which is meant to pre-activates the OS.
But even if you were asked to activate it, the product key should obviously work.
So you effectively have two problems.

Can turn computer off and on and I will see the windows screen then the screen goes blue with a blinking cursor. I also have a dell.


It is related to bios enabled computrace models. It has happened twice to my dell 1525 I bought it 12/08. The software used to image your recovery partition is incompatible with the two tiny hidden partitions computrace uses. Computrace gets corrupted and shuts you down like you stole the laptop through no fault of your own. All of you data is still there so don't worry. smile.gif

According to dell, you have to remove the hard drive, download your correct bios from their site using another computer of course, and while the hardrive is still removed, flash the new bios and then reinstall the hardrive and it should work fine with all your data intact.

I found this tech update at dell's website this problem goes back to 2005 but the most recent update was dec. 2008 and includes many laptops including the 1500 series.

Computrace freaked out and completely disabled your system. You can send it back or follow the instructions in the update if you are out of warranty.

I am a graphic designer so I needed to finish a project, so I did this to get it running again, backed up my data, and sent my laptop back for a replacement.

I have included part of the update and the Dell web link for you below.

Certain Dell™ Portable Systems Display a Black Screen with a Flashing Cursor when Booting from the Hard Drive

This issue only occurs on Dell portable systems that shipped after Oct. 31, 2005, and have the following configuration:
  • The CompuTrace BIOS feature is supported and has been set to Activate.
  • A system account has been created, and the laptop is registered with Absolute Software.
  • The Altiris Backup and Restore application for local client has been installed.
Affected systems manifest the following symptoms:
  • When the system is powered on, it does not complete the boot process, and the only indication that a problem has occurred is a black screen with a flashing cursor in the upper left corner of the display.
  • The system cannot boot from any media as long as the hard drive is attached. The only way to boot to other media is to remove the hard drive from the system.
Altiris Backup and Recovery software uses an atypical mechanism to hide a partition within the system volume. This mechanism involves hiding valid data relating to the Altiris Backup and Recovery software in marked blocks that the operating system is designed to ignore. The installation process for Altiris also leaves table entries that store directory information for NTFS. These entries are formatted differently than those normally observed on an NTFS-formatted partition. These changes were not anticipated, and we are not aware of any other product that uses the file system in such a manner.

I hope this helps.
