SOURCE: how to break bios password

Continue with a blank password field, since none was manually set.

If that doesn't work, locate the BIOS battery and remove it for several minutes and replace it, that should flash the BIOS to default.

You need Windows XP touch-screen version. It came on disc with the laptop. I wish I had a copy too.

If you can return it to the retailer, that would be my first option. Sounds like a bad backlight.

Hi,
Seems like your hard disk is not getting detected.
Press the power button and hold it down for 20 seconds(without the battery or adapter plugged in to it). This process is called POWER DRAIN.
Start tapping the DEL key as soon as you power on the computer.
This will take you to the BIOS screen.
If it doesn't, you will have to check whether your hard disk is faulty with a local technician.

Once you get in to the BIOS screen, press F9 to load the default settings.
Than press F10 to save and exit.
Once you do this, the computer will restart.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: how do I start acer iconia in safe mode

Hold the power button in for the count of ten, it should shut it down and cause it to ask you to boot up in safe mood, it may take a couple of tries but it will eventually go to a menu to ask for the boot mode....I recommend spyhunter4...I just removed that virus from a clients pc two days ago

How do I unfreeze the computer


In case your Android smartphone is complete frozen and not responding to you at all, the above restart method won't work for you! To unfreeze Android smartphone that is dead froze, force restart it by holding the Sleep / Power key and the Volume Down key simultaneously until your device's screen goes blank.
This force restart key combo varies from device to device, so it is advised to check your device manual for the right combo. If your Android device has a removable battery, you can remove it and put it again and it will restart the device.

Bypass a forgotten lock code


Make sure the tablet has been turned off first by holding down the power button until you get the power off dialog box and choose power off. Then hold down the volume button and while continuing to hold the volume button, hold down the power button until you get a message like 'booting into recovery mode' or a dialog box that allows you to go into recovery mode and do a factory reset. Some tablets may boot into a screen with the Android robot on it that you can touch the robot and get to the recovery mode screen. When you do a factory reset, all user information stored on the tablet will be cleared, including the passwords or lock codes.

How do i reset my asus transformer tablet tf101 i have a blank screen will not turn on


Perform a soft or hard reset on your Asus Eee Pad Transformer Android tablet if it is not functioning correctly. Here's how.

Soft Reset

You would want to soft reset the device in the event that it has become frozen or unresponsive. To do so, press and hold the Power button on the top-left side of the device for about 10 seconds until the device powers off.

Hard Reset

A hard reset (also known as a factory reset) will clear all data and settings from the memory of the device and set it back to factory default settings. You can perform hard reset on the Asus Eee Pad using the Android OS menus or the hardware buttons.
Method 1 1. Power the Eee Pad off.
2. Press and hold the Volume Down button on the left side of the device, then press and hold the Power button.
3. Continue to hold both buttons until a bootloader screen appears.
4. Wait for the prompt that says to "Press <VOL_UP>" then press the Volume Up button to start the process.
The Asus Eee Pad will complete the hard reset process and reboot into a factory default state.
Method 2 1. Open the Settings app.
2. Select Privacy.
3. Choose Factory data reset.
4. Select Erase tablet.
5. Select Erase everything.

Hard resetting


The trick is sliding the display lock switch at the exact right moment, otherwise it will not engage. Here are the steps that have worked for my self and several other Xoom FE owners:
1. Power off the unit - if not already
2. Hold down the "Down" volume button at the same time you hold down the power button for 3-5 seconds.
3. While still holding down the "Down" volume button, release the power button and toggle the display lock slide a couple of times (located next to the volume controls).
4. The display should now show "Booting Recovery Kernel Image" and then the Android Robot will be displayed when the unit is in the rebooting phase.
5. Since the device is being Reset (erased and re-imaged), it is normal to see "Please wait for pre-load data" and this process takes about 6-8 minutes. The Xoom FE is now being Factory Restored to the original image.

I put a password on my android tablet and now i dont remember the password


Make sure you backup your files by connecting it to a PC (if you have access to one) via USB cable,you will have to do a hard reset, otherwise there is no other way to get past the lockscreen (unless you have a recovery option with your email address)

Below is the process to tell you how you can hard reset your Samsung tablet (should work with any tablet):


  • Ensure that the Samsung tablet is powered off.
  • Press the Power and the Volume Up button together till the device displays the start-up logo.
  • Once the logo is displayed, release the buttons and wait till the device enters the Android system recovery mode.
  • On the displayed screen, use Volume Down button to go to the wipe data/factory reset option (Volume Up and Volume Down buttons are used to highlight the displayed options on the Android system recovery screen).
  • Once the option is highlighted, press the Power button to select the option. (Pressing the Powerbutton in Android system recovery mode selects the highlighted option.)
  • On the next screen, press the Volume Down button multiple times till the Yes -- delete all user data option is highlighted.
  • Press the Power button to hard reset the Samsung tablet device while clearing the dalvik cache along with the process.
  • Once your device is hard reset and rebooted successfully, you will see that the unlock pattern obstruction is also gone, and you can now set a new unlock pattern on your Samsung tablet.
