Question about HP Computers & Internet
HP ProBook 4520, I recently upgraded to windows 8 (which works well) however, it will sign me off as a user after 15 seconds of inactivity. I have checked every setting i can find and nothing works
Open the Power Options in Control Panel, select High Performance, select Change Plan settings, set Display time, change Sleep and Hibernate to Never, select Change Advanced Power settings, scroll through each one and set to your preference. This may help: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rydgB_9EOQ

Oh, you must be an Administrator, right? If there is another Administrator account on the PC, it can restore your password through User Account Settings -> Manage Another Account.
If not, I have a complex way. First, restart the PC. When it shows the HP logo when booting up, press the button for Setup (it is shown at the bottom of the screen, and it is F8 on my HP tx2001au).
Now, don't get scared by what appears. It looks a bit complex, but it is very simple and easy.
Navigate using the keyboard. Press the right button to move to the Security section. Here, press Enter on the Administrator Password option. Now enter and confirm a new password and you're done.
See the bottom of the screen for the button for 'Quit Saving Changes' and the computer will reboot. Now, I guess you can enter the new password.
If this doesn't work, see online for ways to reset a password in Vista. There are some softwares to burn to a CD and use.
If it is an XP, I guess there is nothing to do. Just press Ctrl+Alt+Del on the logon screen to see the classic logon screen. Type in the username 'Administrator' without quotation marks and the password blank. Press Enter and enjoy.

Until you can get the keyboard of the laptop replaced, you can buy a USB to AT keyboard adapter and hook a desktop keyboard to your system. Also a USB keyboard would work just fine directly plugged-in to one of the USB ports.
Most likely the fix will be to replace the keyboard, which is usually very easy to remove on laptops, but until you can get it fixed, you'll be able to use the system with the regular AT keyboard.
If you want to try to replace the keyboard yourself, I believe I've found it on the HP web site (you will need to confirm that it is the correct keyboard by contacting HP)

This is only possible is you are using Windows XP. If your operating system is windows Xp, follow the steps below:
But in the case of windows Vista, you will have to re-run windows operating system, because vista security is very tight and it is difficult to break into its password..
