If you mean you cannot log on to windows, then press F8 while booting up, then this will take you into safe mode, select start windows in safe mode and then choose the administrator account and go into windows, make yourself a new user account, then delete the paswsorded one and restart the notebook.

I bought a former Circuit City - store (employee) use Lenovo (ThinkPad) T60. It's asking for an administrative password that I do not have. I have a complete set of T60 (2007) recovery/restore CDS but it...

Create a different user account. You won't have administrator permissions but you still may be able to perform the task you were trying to do when it prompted you for a password.

I bought a Toshiba Satellite L505D-S6952 at A swap meet.They didnt tell me the Password -now I cant find them and I cant use my laptop because I cant bypass the password. please can you help me????

Sure are you looking for the bios password or the OS password?
If your looking for the OS password you can use an program that is advailble on line to recover the password, this will cost you money to get.
I would say to buy the OS cd and reload the system..

You can order replacement cd's from them, or just go buy an OS cd from your computer shop.

How to downgrade vista to winxp pro at Hp pavilion DV4-1204TU ?

Well, this may make you think twice:

I bought a presario from circuit city last year, and I paid $200 to downgrade to XP. Everything was fine until it crashed last week. IT went completely bizzerk. HP won't provide support, cause I changed it. Circuit City is out of business, not much help there.

Basically, I am completely #$%%@@.

I am now paying to get Vista put back in. :-(

Hdd password reset

Laptops have the option to password protect for security purposes. If the laptop should be lost-stolen. this is to ensure your personnal data, cannot be accessed by any tom dick and harry.
Post your laptop model number, and i,ll see if anything can be done.
i do not endorse password removal, as the majority of the time, a user cannot prove that the laptop actually belongs to them.
I,d also feel happier if you could also prove in any way, that you are the legal owner of the laptop in question.

Battery and/or charging problem with zd8000

Hi, Yours might be a case of a batch of factory defect batteries. Bring it back to Circuit City and ask for a replacement but ask if you can get from a different batch. If they will not agree, show them the problem and try it in their presence. Though you may also ask for a check up of the output of the adapter and its charging/powering capacity. Another thing you can try is to power up then shutdown your laptop normally (even if have to use AC). With the PC off let the AC adapter focus on charging the battery for a couple of hours at least (overnight preferably). Then try again using the PC battery only. If this does not work guess your back to Circuit City. Good luck and kind regards.
