    not sure what the question is... have you forgotten the password.... if so start typing in every password you have ever used as that is the only way short of formatting the computer that you can get back in.

Depending on the brand of the laptop, you can reset the BIOS password juts by removing ALL power sources: AC Adapter, main battery and BIOS Battery for a t least 5 minutes. The BIOS battery may require some disassembling, but loook in the usual places: memory compartment, hard disk compartment, and WiFi compartment.Some brand laptop can be render useless due to a BIOS Password. Your laptop manufacturer can reset your password for a mere $200 or so. Give them a call.

My lock screen on galaxy 5 won't come on. It goes straight to home screen. Why is it doing that? It was fine 2 days ago. How can I get it back?


Three Reasons Why Screen Lock is Gone
1. Screen Lock has been deactivated (Instructions how to activate are at bottom.)
2. Android Screen Security File may have been deleted, and screen lock option is no longer on your devise.(A Factory Reset will restore original Android files)
3. Malfunction Somewhere in Samsung Phone. (A Factory Reset might work, but not guaranteed)
(How to Factory Reset phone at bottom.)

How to ativate Screen Lock and Security settings

1. Press the apps icon, it usually at the bottom of screen.
2. Find Settings and press that button to open settings menu.
4. Scroll down the menu to Lock Screen and Security, press that to open options menu.
5. The first option at top is Screen Lock Type.Press and Open.
6. You will have 3 lock types to choose from. Swipe Lock, Passcode Lock, Password Lock
(advise, do not forget password, only a hard phone reset, or an apk lockout file will get you back in)

If activating screen lock through settings did not work, or if option is not available, you can try to reset phone to the way it was when you bought it.

There is a couple things you should know.
1. contacts, photos, videos, downloaded apps, games, and everything not on the phone when it was first bought, or when you first got the phone will be erased.
2. You can back up contacts, photos, videos, in settings menu, scroll down to Backup and Reset. Or save to an sd card, and remove sd card before applying reset option
3. If you have an account (google or android email) associated with your phone, you will need email address, (example@any.com) and password to get back in phone after phone resets and turns on.) Dont remember password, Please create a new password now before continuing to reset to manufacture settings.

Reset Phone to Manufacture Settings
1. Remove SD Card, or its saved files will be erased.
2. Open apps, Open Settings Menu, Scroll Down to Backup and Reset.
3. Scroll down to bottom of page to Factory Data Reset.
4. Follow instructions to reset phone.

When your phone comes back on, Swipe Screen Unlock should be active at phone turn on, if screen lock is not showing try again to turn on in security settings.
If still does not work,
I am sorry, Your phone has permanantly malfunctioned. You can try your phone store, or a phone repair shop.

How do I unlock my hp 2000 notebook?


(1) If you are referring to your Windows password, you can try one of the free password recovery tools found here:
http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/tp/passrecovery.htm

(2) If you created a password reset disk, use that.

(3) Log into Windows using another administrator account (if this is available). Find and select your user account and change the password.

(4) Purchase the Reset Windows Password Utility: http://www.lostwindowspassword.com/

You might try removing the CMOS battery on the motherboard for at least 10-15 minutes to see if that will reset or clear the bios. You need to remove it for that long to dischartge the capacitors, Another thing that may work is:

Turn the computer on
Press F2 to enter the BIOS ( a grey screen should come up)
Turn on caps lock,scroll lock and num lock on your keybord
Press Alt +E then Alt +F then Alt +B


If this fixes your problem, please take a moment to rate this answer. Anything less than a 4 thumbs up is essentially a negative rating. I don't think people seeking help here are aware of that, but that's how the rating system works.

My computer, a lenovo y510 laptop malfunctioned. After inserting the recovery, and attempting to boot from the disk, the screen simply goes blank instead of opening the normal vista install center.


Hi lightning_ha,

Based on your situation, I suggest trying the following steps:

1. Turn on the system then insert the recovery disk inside the ODD.

2. Now turn off the computer while recovery disk is inside.

3. Turn on the computer, the moment you press the power button, immediately tap the F12 key and press it continuously.

4. Now you have the boot option. Select CD/DVD/ODD by pressing enter then continuously tap it until you see the Windows is loading a file.

5. Wait until it goes 100%.

6. Now it will ask you on what partition you will put the operating system. Just select the partition that has a large capacity or size.

7. Just wait until it completes the whole installation.

8. Restart the computer.

Hope it helps,

Thank you for using FixYa.
