I can't log on because i forgot my password


You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program.

I forgot pass word?


If you have another account on your laptop that has administrator rights, log in into that account and change the password for your account. If you have an administrator account (even if you don't try putting in Administrator and leave password field blank) try using that account to reset the password, otherwise try one of the following:
- see this for XP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321305
- or this for Vista/Win7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/What-to-do-if-you-forget-your-Windows-password
- or if anything else didn't work you can use thrid party software from Hiren's Boot CD http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/Hirens.BootCD.12.0.zip

How to change the screen on a hp pavilion dv4-1465dx laptop


A) Remove all electrical sources; The AC adapter (Charger) and the Battery.

B) Obtain a multi-compartment container for the screws you will remove. There are screws which look alike, but aren't. You won't realize the mistake until you have the screw in halfway, it is then stuck, and CAN'T remove it. Gives you a warm fuzzy feeling all over.

You can use a clean egg carton in a pinch. Label each egg holder for what area the various screws came out of.

C) Suggest you buy, and wear an ESD wrist strap. (Electro Static Discharge) They cost from $3 to $8. The area you are going into is relatively safe from static shock, as there are no hardware components that are nearby, and prone to Static shock, BUT, it never hurts to be safe.

Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components of a computer, (Laptop or Desktop)
You probably won't see it, or feel it.

Connect the alligator clip to a good ground source. I connect to the metal frame of an empty desktop computer case.

D) I don't find a Service and Maintenance Guide on HP Support, but the information from this link should do very nicely,

1) http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-lcd-screen-from-hp-pavilion-dv5-laptop/

It's a dv5 series, but you'[ll find it crosses over to your dv4 series quite well.
Scroll down the page.

Had a computer given to me from a school. Can't get past the password page. How can I change or delete the password page?


If it's running Windows XP try using user: administrator password: administrator. If you're not running XP or if this doesn't work please clarify.
