How to completely erase everything without a secondary key


Wipe it really clean? Like erase Windows and everything?

Do you have the original disks that came with the computer? If you boot from a Windows installation disk, then you can reformat (wipe) the disk before you install. That's a nice clean install. If you want to go a step further, you could repartition the drive with fdisk, then format it.

If you're looking to keep windows, but erase all the programs and files, that's more tedious. Open Control Panel, go to Programs & Features. You'll see a list of installed programs. You can double-click on a program to uninstall it.

To get rid of files, I would suggest creating a new User account for yourself, give yourself Administrator permissions, and then delete your friends account. Then you can look in the Users folder, and if you see your friend's account on a folder, delete it.

Error messgae trying to use system restore to get rid of program stopping my computer from starting get error mess age class not registered OX80040154 please close system restore and try again


Go back further in your system restore to an earlier date until normal operation is restored. If this still doesn't work, buy yourself a new hard drive. Put your operating system and programs you use on the new drive and copy file from your old drive mounted in the slave position to copy file from your old drive. Once you have done this, format your old drive and keep it for a spare. Your new drive will have none of the old problems any more. Be careful about the WEB sites you go to and use a quality anti-virus program to screen future problems.

Bios 8615 gtk not recognizing hard drive


Remove the battery and all power. Press the power on button a few times then place the charger back in and power on. They sometimes hang in the RAM and killing the power totally will allow it to reset.
Did you try your hdd in the other laptop because if you did it might have screwed up your OS.

Can i get rid os this


Insyde is a UEFI manufacturer which is essentially the the program that boots your computer for Windows to take over. If it gets stuck in that screen, it usually means that it keeps trying to start the hard drive to load off of that, but the hard drive isn't responding.

When it does it putting your ear up to the laptop can yield a quick judgement. If you hear a repetitive spin up, spin down cycle, or clicking noises, it's not a good sign at all. I would then recommend backing up any files you do not want to lose and get the hard drive replaced.

You would need to get the administrator password to enable options. Either you can get it touch with the administrator of your company to help you with the password, or Google to find out how you can get one.

These advertisement trojans are particularly hard to get rid of. The reason is that when one opens it hides several others that are inactive and usually undetectable. These lay dormant until they notice that the others are not working any longer, then one or two will open and hide more, but they will not all open. The reason that they are so hard to contain is that they lie dormant in all types of files, even picture files. When you think you've gotten rid of them, about a week or so later it starts all over again. Unfortunately,and I know you don't want to hear this, the only sure way to get rid of this is to wipe the hard drive and start fresh. Keeping any old files from your hard drive may reinfect the new system.
