When I turn my laptop on it won't. Let me log in


Hello

With any password issues, be sure you do not have your CAPS LOCK on and, because this is a laptop, be sure the NUM LOCK is not on either. NUM LOCK activates the number pad on the letters of the keyboard and can easily cause login issues.

With both off, type your password in the USER NAME field and make sure it appears correctly (this will show you what you are typing and how the laptop "sees" what you typed). If this is correct, delete this, enter your user name and then re-type the password and see if you can get logged in.

If this fails, you may need to use a "password reset boot disk" to boot your computer up and reset your password. Let us know if you need help with that step.

Lock or unlock your smartphone
You can lock the keyboard to avoid pressing it or making calls accidentally and, if you have set a BlackBerry smartphone password, you can also lock your smartphone with a password.
Do one of the following:
  • To lock the keyboard, press the alk1319565787328_lowres_en-us.jpg key on the top of your smartphone.
  • To unlock the keyboard, press the alk1319565787328_lowres_en-us.jpg key again.
  • To lock your smartphone with a password, on the home screen or in a folder, click the alk1319565807422_lowres_en-us.jpg icon.
  • To unlock your smartphone, enter your password.

When I turn my pc on with Vista Runnng, i choose the account, enter password but it types nothing why?


Is your keyboard working? Try pushing the Num Lock and Caps Lock keys and see if the lights for those keys light up. If its a USB keyboard try another port or your computer might not be loading the USB driver for some reason.

Just called merchant services for the same problem... The hot key to lock/unlock is 7 or 8, you enter the password, it will then give you the option to lock, select no and the keyboard will unlock.

Forgot my blackberry curve 9300 keyboard lock


This lock code is something you would have chosen, their is no default code and no way to recover it. This is by design for security reasons. You have 10 attempts in total to guess if you don't remember the password. After 5 attempts the letters you type will no longer be hidden behind "*". After 10 attempts the phone will be wiped clean. All of your data will be lost. Hopefully you have been connecting your phone to your pc and doing a regular backup. If you have synchronization activated with your email accounts (done during initial setup of gmail or exchange type email accounts) you won't loose your contacts. Anything else that is on the internal memory of the phone will be lost.

I want to be able to lock my HTC desire with the keyboard not the pattern


First thing you need to do is turn off the visible pattern. Go to Settings > Security and uncheck Use Visible Pattern.
Next, Click on Change Screen Lock (Still in Settings > Security). Enter your pattern, and choose what type of Unlock security you would like to use (in your case, either PIN or Password, pin being purely numeric, and password being alphanumeric)
Enter your pin or password, confirm it, and your done!
