    What do you mean locked? You can't open the unit or can't access the system?

Do you mean you are locked out of your profile/Windows Account? Your password does not work?.

If this is the case, you can keep clicking F8 right after your computer turns on until you get a menu screen on a black background. With the arrow keys on the keyboard select Safe Mode and click enter.

You will get to a more basic (larger) looking Windows screen and there with be an "Administrator" account. If no password was entered for this account, click this account and enter with no passsword. Go to Settings > Control Panel the double Click the icon for User Accounts. Choose your Account and reset/erase or change your password.

Reboot and you should be able to log in with the new password you created or without a password (if you erased it).

I get pop up "OSD" locked..How do I unlock OSD?

I chatted with a friend who had the problem and she says that you hold down the menu key for 10 seconds as you are coming up and it will fix the problem. This was with an HP though but it was running XP. BTW, you do know that XP is not going to be supported much longer so it might be a good idea to look at an upgrade. If your PC can handle it, I have had few issues with Windows 7. Not advertising, just commenting.

F10 = system revcovery doesn't work

i) for hp system f10 is system recovery in the case of Windows XP
                        f11 is system recovery in the case of Windows Vista

ii) another way of performing system recovery is by using recovery cd, which will supplied to you by hp by calling the customer service untill unoless you inbuilt recovery is not working

iii) another wa of performing recovery is to press the strat button------press all programs----you will see recovery manager (i'm afraid idont the right path but u explore in all programs....)

iv) recovery is nothing bringing the system back to factory setting(like the day i bought your computer to home....)

I just purchased a compaq notebook lap top i locked it and now dont know how to unlock it Help !!!!

Hi lenise,

Have you locked your laptop through the user account or from the BIOS password protection?

Which operating system is this? XP or Vista?

If its the user account, then is it the administrator?
If yes, then you can change the admin password with a security hole in XP ( Windows installation disk would be required).
