    What operating system? Is it locked and you need a password? Is it locked up and you can't restart?

    If you will post a little more information, we might be able to better help you.

    Thanks

Unlock bios


No such thing. If you want to unlock your BIOS so you can overclock the computer, the CPU must be overclockable from the factory. If the CPU is locked you can't do it.

Dell laptop computer how do i unlock ruby laptop not a desktop when sgin on it read ruby lock how do i unlock it. rubybryant89@yahoo.com


The computer goes in to lock mode when it goes into hybernation or to sleep after a period of inactivity. By "ruby laptop" I presume you mean there is a button with the name ruby on it? If so, just click on the button and if it is password protected, it will ask you for the password for that user account. If it is not password protected it will go on into the desktop.

My computer keyboard is locked. How do I unlock


The connections might be loose. Please try to unplug the cable which connects your keyboard to the computer. If that doe snot work try an alternate keyboard and see if that works.

If that still does not work, then most probably it is the keyboard port on the motherboard which is faulty.
