Question about Computers & Internet

My computer does not recognise me as the administrator

My computer will not let me change any settings or download any updates because it tells me to contact the system administrator. This is my home computer and I am the only user so how do I convince the computer that I AM the BOSS???

    Solution does not apply. The start button only gives three options; stand by , turn off , restart..... there is no log off option.

NOT GOOD My Friend....you just blew the BIOS:
Never update BIOS unless the computer is not working all that well. When doing new Bios, the Precise BIOs for the computer are required. Any change can damage the instruction set and render the BIOs useless. Also...any interruption during the rewriting of a BIOs will mess of the Chip and blank out the instruction set. If you can, with the correct BIOS downloaded to a flash drive, you may restructure the BIOS if they can be flashed again.

Download driver free


Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll through all of your devices
If you see a yellow question or exclamation mark ? ! or a red X you will need to update the drivers for this device right click select update driver/reinstall driver
if you can see your usb device but its not working scroll to Ports(Com&Ltd) right click to update driver
If you computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it.
Rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours

Windows XP/Vista/7/8

it might take some time being a freeware driver solution
Note: it will find all of your outdated drivers

This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.

Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.
also at cnet
http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html
on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for
IE: Motherboard name sound drivers.
Place a tick in either windows software or all software box.
You might have to try a few times to get it right.

Its says on sights that windows xp does not recongise sada harddrives


You just need an updated XP SP3 installation disc. No special instructions are then required. This was referring to a new OS install, with new SATA drives. Right?

Or, make sure you are updated and add a second drive as normal.

When i start the computer then first message is display invalid or mising microcode for update contact hewlett-packard company. Now you tell me how to update microcode thanks


Hello ikrambscs!
The microcode is part of the computers BIOS that identifies the processor. To update the microcode you need to install the latest BIOS for your motherboard. You can go to Hewlett-Packard's download page HERE, select "Download drivers and software (and firmware)" and enter your computers model information. On the next page select your operating system. This will give you the download link for the latest BIOS for your computer.

Computer Lock Down


Force your computer to start in Safe Mode. To do that, hold down the F5 key when you start up and keep holding it until you see that your PC has booted to Safe Mode. (Another way to do this is to hold down the F8 key during boot time until you’re presented with the Windows Startup Menu and then choose Safe Mode from the list of options presented there.

When you’re in Safe Mode Windows skips the Config.sys and Autoexec.bat files and loads a minimal set of drivers that lets your PC function at a basic level. Then do a systme restore while on safe mode......

Hope that helps..........
