Which operating system ?
As for the recovery disk with nothing on it it might be a problem with the cd\dvd player
Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver You might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd computer then plug them back in restart your this should activate the found new hardware wizard. If this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem "you only need to do the following" if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer Close all open programs Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SYSTEM CurrentControlSet Control Class {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column. Upper Filters Lower Filters Upper Filters.bak Lower Filters.bak If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone. if this fails to fix the problem

It could be a problem with the lens you could use a liquid type lens cleaner place 2-3 drops on top of a cd/dvd then run it Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I lost my systems recovery disks. How can I create them?

There should be a Toshiba Recovery Disk Creator. Check in your Start>all programs and Toshiba and see if it isthere. Usually they put it on a partition on the HD so you can create it.

If you cannot create one, or the folder is missing, then you will have to order them from Toshiba, if they even have them, which sometimes they do not.

If you have the Windows sticker on the bottom with the long code on it, they you can at least get a windows disk that matches the version you have, and reinstall windows. You may have to get online with another computer and then download the drivers.

Also, you have to back up your data, if you have any to save.

If you go to their support site and put in your exact model, this should also help. http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp#

Can t open my dell inspiron 1440 old one


For its time it was a good spec with Vista 64 and 4GB RAM and should still work well today. Three options.
1. Try logging into the administrator account in safe mode.
Start your PC and press F8 repeatedly before Windows loads to open Vista's Boot Options screen.
Select Safe Mode and press Enter.
On welcome screen choose the Administrator account, which by default has no password. Just hit return.
Goto Start / Control Panel / User Accounts and create a new user account with admin privileges
Close and restart PC and log into the new account.

2. Use a password recovery program
The following link shows 8 free password recovery programs.
http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/tp/passrecovery.htm

3. As a last resort reset to factory defaults. Dells normally come with a hidden recovery partition.
Either boot from the recovery disks you created or use the hidden partition for a fresh install.
To do a factory restore,on startup press Ctrl + F11 which will take you to the recovery partition so you can do a factory restore. This will then create new user accounts.
Good Luck

My ipod is blocked. i forgot the password. what do i do?


Plug it into itunes on a PC or MAC and see what itunes has to say about it. Normally itunes will unblock it for you, or if the worst comes to the worst you will have to do a firmware restore. (plug into itunes and click on the restore button on the main ipod screen.)

Password Recovery Disk


Hi,

Take preventive measures against losing user-level passwords.

It doesn't matter if you never again remember a Windows user password. Thanks to XP's Forgotten Password Wizard, your conscience will be free and clear -- should your mind happen to accidentally misplace your user password.

I highly suggest you create a password recovery disk the minute you create your user account. Why? In order to create a password recovery disk you're going to need your password. Write it down the minute you create your user account and then proceed to creating your very own password recovery disk.

Here's how to launch the Forgotten Password Wizard:


Single-click Start menu, Control Panel, and User Accounts.
Click your user account name.
Under Related Tasks on the left, click "Prevent forgotten password" to launch the wizard.

Now that you've launched the wizard, let it walk you through creating the recovery disk. Make sure the disk you use is formatted and in the drive. After it's finished creating the disk, label it and stash it away for an emergency.


If you happen to forget your password, all you need to do is click your user icon at the logon screen. Even though you don't have your password, go ahead and click the green arrow just like you would to finish logging on to your computer. This will launch a little yellow dialog box directing you to use your password recovery disk.


Good luck!
