SOURCE: My Toshiba A205 S4777 won't start up and I can't use the recovery media to fix it.

Try flashing the bios by pulling the chord out attached to the "watch" battery.

SOURCE: laptop freezes at windows login screen

If it's not a hardware problem, then you can salvage this computer by installing Linux on it. Mandriva 2009.0 works fine
on a T42 Thinkpad, and it's not that difficult a transition from Windows.

SOURCE: i forgot my user login password

boot in safe mode by pressing f8 while starting up the pc.

  • 1. Go to your start button, select “Command Prompt” from the “Accessories” list.
  • 2. Type in “control userpasswords2” and press “Enter”. This command will launch the Windows 2000 User Accounts application.
  • 3. Go to the “Users tab” and check the box labeled “Users Must Enter a User Name and Password to Use This Computer”, then click “Ok”.
another way, is look for password resetter on the web.

SOURCE: I forgot my password. I have bought a recovery

Sounds like your computer is protect with a BIOS password. A BIOS password is a protection measure that can be used to stop someone powering up a computer system or making changes in some of the computers most sensitive areas. That's why the CDROM has been disabled and you can not run the recovery disk.

As a computer enthusiast, it is possible to reset the BIOS password but could be potential fatal to your notebook if you don't know what your doing.

Here is a method to bypass or remove a BIOS password.

Note: Make sure you are working in a static free environment before opening up your computer.

The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOS battery. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when it is turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by small battery inside the computer called a CMOS battery.

If you pull out this battery, the computer will forget alot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password.



pcj141414_0.jpg




Open up the computer case using a screw driver and locate the flat, circular and metallic CMOS battery. It should look something like the picture above.

There are many different ways to remove a CMOS battery but the most common way on newer computers can be seen in the picture below.

pcj141414_1.jpg

The computer must not be able to get power from anywhere for this to work so make sure its unplugged from everything.

Take out the CMOS battery and wait 10 - 25 minutes before putting it back in. The reason for this wait is because the computer can still store power in its capacitors even though everything is unplugged. The waiting period allows enough time for them to discharge.
Plug everything back in, power up the computer and enter the BIOS again. If everything went well there should be no more password. In some cases, if you get weird error messages during bootup now, you will need to goto "Load BIOS Defaults" in BIOS and save the changes to fix them.

Enjoy, Have Fun and Don't Stress.

If You just installed Ubuntu and forgot what password you selected during the installation process or one of your friend gave you ubuntu computer without giving username and password.This tutorial will help you to recover username and password

1) Turn on your computer, and as soon as you the Press Esc to enter grub message, press the escape key.
2) Select the option that says (recovery mode).
3) Your PC will boot into a shell. Once you get a command prompt, type “passwd username” where the username is your username. If you can’t remember your username, then you can type “ls /home” which should bring it up.

Forgot my windows vista login password


Try to login to safe mode with administrator login and change the password for your user account.

There is no way to bypass user security otherwise in Windows Vista.

My admin account wont work


Did you downloaded that on a virus-free website like www.download.com? And one more thing, when you mean "I can't use my admin account", do you mean windows is telling you that the password you enter is wrong? If that's the case try booting into safe mode (by pressing F8 before the XP Logo). By default, XP have a built-in "Administrator" account name & the password is blank. You should be able to login with that & try to change your password on your account on the user accounts setting on control panel.

Hope this helps.
