You can remove the lock screen but your storage will be totally erased. This feature is enabled only for security purpose.


Step 1
Flip your HTC Evo over, and pull the rear cover off of the device. Lift the battery out of its recess, and wait for about five seconds. Return the battery to the HTC Evo, and replace the battery cover.
Step 2
Hold down the "Volume Down" button on the Evo's left edge. Press and release the "Power" button. Instead of the standard power-up and lock screen, a new menu will appear on the LCD.
Step 3
Release the "Volume Down" button after the menu appears on the screen, then tap the "Volume Down" button twice to highlight the "Clear Storage" option.
Step 4
Press the "Power" button to choose "Clear Storage." Press the "Volume Up" button to confirm that you want to erase everything on the Evo. After a few moments, the Evo will reset itself and the screen lock will be gone.

Hello,

Try performing a soft reset or a hard reset to the unit.
The soft reset is done by holding down the power button for at least 10 seconds and allowing the unit to power back on.
A hard reset is done by pressing and holding the bottom right hand corner of the screen while the power is off and then pressing the power button on. A pop up will appear asking to confirm the reset.
The hard reset will erase the user data, so it is advisable to save the data if possible.
Installing and running the Garmin WebUpdater to load or reload the latest update will resolve most issues.
download the latest version of WebUpdater software

The touch screen may need recalibration.
This can be done by pressing and holding the top left corner of the screen will powering on the unit.
Keep pressing the top left corner of the screen until the calibration screen appears.
Use a stylus or the round back part of a pen to press the dots to calibrate.
Once the calibration is done the unit will continue to boot up showing the Garmin screen.

You may also want to contact Garmin support for assistance.

My laptop IBM 2652 is locked .A padlock appears at top left of screen.I would appreciate help in unlocking and returning it to factory settings.My user guide is lost.


The Thinkpad is locked with a Power On Password and its purpose is to prevent unauthorized access to the laptop..
This password is set from the BIOS configuration.
Removing the BIOS battery to set the BIOS back to the factory default will not remove the password because it is stored on an EEPROM chip on the motherboard.
There is a way to remove this password, but it requires electronic knowledge and soldering skills. Please click on this link and follow my instructions.

My laptop is locked and a lock symbol appears on top left corner on the screen


If you press Ctrl + Alt + del, does it bring up an unlock screen where you can enter your password? If not, can you press and hold the power button for 10 seconds to shut it down? Then power back on to restart.
