My tablet says to enter decrypted password but i never set one up


The paperclip is used to activate the reset button in this small hole; You will hear and feel a click of the inside button, in less than 15mm of insertion. Do not force unduly!
1. Insert paperclip, until you hear the click of the button. Keep paperclip inserted, and press and hold the black power button.
2. In about 10 seconds the blue PROSCAN screen will appear. Continue to keep black power button held, and release paperclip.
3. A few seconds later you will see an Android 'guy' lying on his back with belly open, and a red triangle (with !) symbol hovering above his belly. Release power button. This means we are on the verge of being able to break things. Note that after a minute or so, if no further action is taken, the tablet will shut down, and then be restarted normally.
4. Press and hold power button. Insert and remove paperclip. You will see a screen titled Android system recovery. (Note that repeated insertion of the paper clip will alternate the display of the Recovery menu). Release power button.
5. Use paperclip to scroll down the list of options. To reset the tablet, selectwipe data/factory reset. Press power button to make the selection. (If you go past the desired option, keep on clicking, as the selection will scroll back to the top once at the bottom).
6. Once reset has been selected, you are now at the final chance to back out or commit. All the menu items, except for one are labeled No. To commit to the reset, select Yes - delete all user data and then press power button.......FOUND ON ZOLYGON.COM

1 Answer

Motherboard wont do anything

A) FOLLOWING Anti-Static Precautions?
If you, or someone who had the board before you didn't, you can use it for a Frisbee now.

(WOW! Look at that thing GO!)

B) Processor installed with Heatsink, and fan hooked up; and Ram Memory installed -> ONLY; you should get BIOS Beep Codes, and maybe Error Codes; plus the BIOS Setup screen.
(Hooked to VGA monitor. No AGP graphics card used)


C) Look at the Electrolytic Capacitors on the motherboard.
(Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors to be exact)

Can they be replaced?
Yes, the Capacitor Plague has been around for a LONG time, and is still affecting us today.
Need guidance in replacing? Post back in a Comment.

You click IN the fields needed.
Leave alone;

1) Manufacturer: The one's presented are of Excellent quality.
2) Tolerance:
3) Product: The capacitor examples that will be shown, ARE of computer grade quality.

4) Operating Temperature Range:

Fields you NEED are the values of the capacitor, and style;

1) Capacitance: Look for -> uf ratings. uf = Microfarad

Capacitors on a personal computer's motherboard; are rated in Microfarads, ( uF), NOT Picofarads. (pF)

2) Voltage

3) Termination Style: -> Radial.
BOTH leads come out of the bottom,

(Click on the second photo down on the right)

When you have clicked in each field, and clicked on the values, and style; then go to the left, or right side; underneath, and click on -
Apply Filters.

Let's use a 4.7uF / 16 Volt / Radial electrolytic capacitor for an example,

Scroll down.
Look under -> Dimensions - to get the physical size you need.

D) Power Supply:
Whip out your multimeter, and with the Function knob set to DC Voltage, check the 3 main voltage power rails.
(If just a symbol, the symbol is a dotted line over a solid line)

Check at the 20-pin ATX main power cable connector.

I use a straightened out paperclip, and insert down into the back of the 20-pin ATX main power cable's connector.
The BACK is where the wires go in.

The straightened out paperclip is inserted down into the socket hole, in the Back of the connector; and slides past the insulation of that wire. It MUST touch a metal terminal at the end of the wire.

Every wire going down into that ATX main power cable's connector; ends in a female Molex metal terminal.

Orange wires are 3.3 Volts.
Red wires are 5 Volts.
Yellow wires are 12 Volts.
Black wires are Ground wires.

ALL Orange wires end in ONE central pint in the Power Supply.
This is the 3.3 Volt power rail.
You can test ANY Orange wire, and test the entire 3.3 Volt power rail.

Same with the Red 5 Volt wires, and Yellow 12 Volt wires.
Pick one to test.

Paperclip in Positive socket hole, in 20-pin ATX main power cable's connector.
Plus paperclip in ANY Black wire socket hole.

3.3 Volt, 5 Volt, and 12 Volt wires are POSITIVE wires.

Positive (Red) probe lead of multimeter touches Orange, OR Red, Or Yellow wire - paperclip.
Negative (Black) probe lead of multimeter touches Black wire paperclip.

Worried about shock?
The dangerous voltage is contained in the case of the Power Supply.
100 to 240 Volts AC.

The Power Supply converts this AC voltage into the low DC Voltages stated above.
In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.

NOT saying there may not be a spark!
Connect a wire to a flashlight battery, and touch it to the bulb, and there is gonna be a spark. Just the way electricity works.

This is why I suggest for those who are new at this; to have the Power Supply unplugged from power; and insert two straightened out paperclips, in the socket holes of the ATX main power cable's connector.

Then (Making sure they don't touch each other), plug the Power Supply into power, and touch the paperclips with the probe leads of the multimeter.

Tested 3.3 Volt power rail? (Orange wire)
Then unplug the Power Supply from power, and move the paperclip over to a Red wire socket hole.
Test for 5 Volts.

Same again for the 12 Volt power rail. (Yellow wire)

Or use a KNOWN to be good, Compatible power supply; for a test unit. Perhaps there is a working computer you can borrow one from.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

[Are you sure the Ram Memory is plugged in tightly? CANNOT just visually inspect. Remove, and reinstall to be SURE.

Are you sure the Ram Memory is the correct Frequency Rate?
Ram Memory typically operates at HALF of the Processor's Front Side Bus. (FSB) ]

How to replace a cd drive in a toshiba satellite

It really depends on what model you have. Not all the satellites have the same mounting but that being said, there are points to look for. On the bottom of the laptop, there will be a symbol by one of the screws usually near the middle of the case bottom, if you look at the front of the cd drive and follow it back along the case bottom, you will see a screw hole and near it will be a symbol that looks like a circle with a wedge cut out. Think of a pie with a thin slice cut out. Take that screw out, now look at the front of the drive, there is a small pin hole, push a paperclip in that hole, that is the manual release for the tray. Pull on the tray and keep puklling and the whole cd device will slide free. If you do not have a symbol on the bottom of the case, then the hold down screw might be under an access door.

How do I eject the CD from the Dell studio laptop?

Eject button should be on the drive on the side. You can also go into my computer and right click the drive and select eject. If neither works the drive must be broken but you can use a paperclip. There will be a tiny hole to insert the paperclip (after you straighten it out). Push the paperclip in and it should open the drive. Good Luck.
