    do one thing... restart your system... when you see the initial Windows Load Screen... press+hold your Left SHIFT key ... keep it pressed until your windows operating system is loaded fully... (if you have a logon screen where you have to enter username/pass, release shift key for a while, enter your user details and press the SHIFT key again immediately after pressing enter)

    try if this works...??

BIOS passwords can be reset in two ways:

1. using software 2. using hardware.

I would first try resetting using software, here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.

In order to move the Taskbar (that is the where the start button is located) all you need to do is left click on an open area of the task bar and drag it down to the bottom of the screen. When you release the left mouse button the Taskbar will appear at the bottom of your screen.

No sound


Here are a couple of things to check:
  1. Do you have a little speaker icon in the bottom right corner of the screen next to the time?
  2. Right click your computer icon and click properties, click hardware tab and click the Device Manager button ( or in vista I think you can type devices into the search area of the start menu). Do any items on the device manager have a yellow or red icon on them? If your sound card is listed in here, this may show you the source of the problem.
