Question about Apple MacBook Pro PC Notebook

Open Question

Screen has blue tint and the computer is making a wierd noise

I was not able to login with my regular username and password. I had to go through a dos based section to be able to add a user as the install cd change password utility did not work. During the setup for a new user the computer would not take my MAC security login for my router but it did take the security password for a pc which was totally strange because the system was set up before using the MAC security login.

Once in the was a prompt for updates. So I decided to let the computer install the updates. After about five minutes of installing the updates the screen changed and went weird. Hard to read and there was a blue tint and very pixilated. I tried rebooting the computer but that has not helped.

    It is a MAC OS X 10.4.6

    Originally only one. But the password stopped working. I did a search and found that if you put the install cd in and hold the option's button down you can go to utilities to reset the password. I did that but the new password would not work at all

    When the password reset did not work I found the option to hold the control and s button down to go to a dos based part and be able to add a user. I added one user and password and restarted the system as the directions stated. I was able to get in and it seemed to work fine until I started running the updates. The first update was a java update and in the middle of that one the screen went all weird. I finished running the updates and did two different virus checkers and a malware/spyware checker. All came up negative. So I added my daughter as a user to test the system and her login seems to be fine.

    How many users are configured for the PC? Is it checked regularly for viruses and rootkits? What type of OS is installed?

I can't log in to my account on my Dell PC?


Now which operating system are you running ?

Forgetting your Windows XP login details might at first seem like a disaster. Don't panic though; your login password and username are easily recovered by changing the login details to that of the administrator.

Begin with your computer turned off, and then turn it on. You will need to log in to your computer manually and this can only be done in the load-up screens. Wait until your computer reaches the Windows login screen. The screen usually displays a "Welcome" message. Press and hold the "Ctrl", "Alt" and "Delete" keys two times at the Windows login screen. Your computer will automatically reveal a Classic Login box. Type "Administrator" (without quote marks) into the "Username" field and leave the "Password" field blank. Windows automatically creates an Administrator account when your computer is first booted up; in this account you can alter or change any user's login details. Navigate through the "Start" menu and click on the "Control Panel." In the Control Panel explorer, double-click on the "User Accounts" icon to open a new window. Select "Change an Account" in the User Accounts window and select the username you want to alter. From here you can edit the user's name and password, but you can also alter the user's picture, account type and .NET password. Restart your computer to login with your new username and password.

Cant get in to my computer lost my password


If you can tell me what the Os do you use, it could be must better.

On XP you can try this:
Boot computer and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you See Windows welcome screen / login screen. It'll show classic login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press Enter and you should be able to login Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".

On Win 7 or Vista:
Ctrl+Alt+Delete won't work, you have to use some windows password reset tool. I recommend Windows Password Reset.

Monitor screen changes from regular color to a green tinted screen?


Is the cable connected securely? You may need to check your video card also. You may be able to disconnect the cable and get a red, green, blue icon on the screen. If that appears normal then there is nothing wrong with the monitor itself, it may be the cord or the video card.

Hope this helps!

TravelMate 2480 Password to LogIN?


You might boot up your computer and start pressing the f8 button for a couple of times. It now boot in Safe Mode and you will see some strange information running by your monitor.

After that there will appear a login screen that requests a username and password.

Try to fill in the username as administrator and leave the password area blank.

You might be able to log on to your system now and than you can change the password of your regular account by browsing to start -> configuration -> users and select your account followed by clicking change password.

I hope this will solve your problem
