"2 MIN" icon on log in screen

Every time I turn on my laptop a "2 MIN" icon displays in the background of the welcome/log in screen. Everything works but it is annoying and I do not know how to get rid of it. Can anyone help? I have only seen one other person with this issue but no one has replied to them. My laptop is refurbished if that makes a difference.

    The laptop works fine It is a display issue on the welcome page when I very first turn on the laptop and it asks for my password. In the background it shows an image that literally says "Welcome" then 'a circle symbol image of some sort' then "2 MIN". The image floats in the same spot directly behind the log in picture and password entry field. It's annoying becasue the image competes with the passwrd picture and log in field.

SOURCE: Laptop Power

I fixed some notebooks with this kind of problem. The switches used in almost all notebooks are small pcb-mounted tactile switch. In time the contacts corrode or dirt go inside. The easy way is to remove the switch cover and cleaning the contact. If you can solder SMD you can replace with a new one...that is if you can open the notebook. Dismantling a notbook is a headache. The switch looks like one in the attached photo

SOURCE: task-bar & start-menu disappeared

Just do as I say - it will be ok and sort itself out - the screen will not go blank and the drivers are still installed in Windows and will just be reinstalled, thus associating themselves with the card again. No internet connection is needed and the drivers will be reinstalled automatically without the need for user input.

To gain access to that which is 'off screen' push the mouse against the edge of the screen and it should move the display into view

SOURCE: My laptop display only shows half a screen. The

i have solve the problem for my hp nx7300. mine used to show everything that should be shown on the screen but had the screen placed in a Conner so small. i solved this by uninstalling the monitor and unknown device drivers. i have then installed the unknown device as a blue-tooth adapter to avoid this problem recurring. hope this sorts out some people's problem. the other half screen with half completely not shown has to do with the cable connecting the monitor and the CPU. remember solving this for my friend by cleaning the connection port.

Logging Off


how long have you waited for it to log off? sometimes it's performing background operations i.e. updates or trying to close a program. hit the windows key and the r key at the same time and type eventvwr and press enter. look at your system events and application events and make sure that it's not having a problem closing a program. this could be what's causing the laptop to hang @ turn off.

2 MIN ICON ON WELCOME SCREEN ACER


My dad fixed this problem by changing the background on his computer. I know this sounds like a strange fix, but apparently certain backgrounds just affect the load time and I think that's what this "2 min" icon was representing. His icon has now disappeared.

Computer won't work past login screen


from that error, it is likely one of 2 things. Either the bootloader is corrupted, which you can try to repair with the following tools:

http://neosmart.net/wiki/display/EBCD/Recovering+the+Vista+Bootloader+from+the+DVD

Worst case for a software error, clean install of Windows to resolve.

Or the hard drive is having a hardware failure and it is effecting the boot sector of the HDD. If it is a HW failure, you may be able to run diags to see if a fault is found. If the drive is bad, it will need to be replaced

I changed the password on my Dell Inspiron 600m the other night and now I can't remember what I changed it to and now I'm locked out of my computer! Please can someone please . . . . help me?


Do you mean the password to log into Windows XP?

If so, right after you turn on the Laptop, start tapping the F8 key until you get a menu screen on a black background.

With the keyboard arrow keys, select Safe Mode and click Enter.

On the Windows Welcome Screen you should see your Windows account and a new Administrator account. Hopefully, no one set up a password on the built-in Administrator account. Click the Administrator account and click to log in with no (blank) password.

Windows will tell you that you are working in Safe Mode and click yes on that box (The screen will look considerably larger and your background will not show as Windows uses default video drivers in safe mode). Click start and go to Control Panel. On the left hand side click Classic View and then Double Click on the User Accounts Icon.

Click your account from the User Accounts window that opens and choose Change My Password or Remove My Passowd. After you have removed or changed your password, close all the Windows and Restart your computer normally. When you get to the Windows Welcome Screen, the Administrator account should not be listed anymore and you can select your account and log in with the New Password you created, or log in with a blank password if you chose to Remove My Password.

I can't get my iLO-2600 to completely work as a monitor.


The TV will always show as screen number 2 because the laptop screen will be found first. I use mine as a monitor for my Desktop.. However, for the picture to show what your laptop does you have to clone your desktop. The button should be where your screen properties are located.
