Was it sold as new? if so it is not new. No installed windows software is password protected, from new install, unless it comes with the password documented. I would take action and request another laptop.

There are many possibilities for this fault, battery not charged due to a faulty ac adapter/charger unit, memory is faulty or not seated properly, mainboard is faulty, you will really need to have the laptop inspected.

How to unlock laptop


Passwords are put in place to prevent unauthorized use. Bring your unit to your seller and have them fix it. They may ask for proof of purchase but they should also have a record of your purchase.

Procedure for setting a passcode for laptop so that nobody can open it.


To prevent and secure anyone from accessing your laptop, you can place a Power On Password on your laptop. This Power On Password comes up as soon as you switch on your laptop and won't allow access any access unless the correct password is entered. There are no backdoor passwords to bypass the Power On password to get into your laptop.
You can also place a hard disk password on your laptop and this will prevent anyone from accessing the data on your hard disk, even if they install the hard disk into another computer. There are no backdoor password to bypass the hard disk password.
You may also enable a BIOS password to prevent anyone from changing your BIOS settings.
These passwords are configured in the laptop's BIOS under Security settings.
Once you create these passwords, I suggest you write down these passwords and place them in a safe place should you need need them.

I have a motorolla at&t razr. i insert the boost sim card n it reads boost signal but my phone is blocked cuz i have to enter a susidy password... i dont know whats the subsidy password. how can i get...


You are trying to use your AT&T phone on the Boost Network. Motorola has put a code to prevent you from using their investment (your phone) on another network. The term "subsidy" refers to the discount they gave you when you purchased the phone from them at a discount, or "subsidy". You can try to search CraigsList for a local person who has software to unlock your phone. Search CraigsList for "unlock motorola cell phone". They will charge you a fee of around $25 to $50.

HP Pavilion N5425 Password Reset


a password just switching on automatically i have not heard before. usually bios passwords have to be turned on and set in the bios. if you are working with a machine that has a system/bios password the only alternative is to contact hp and let them assist you. be mindful they will ask for you to verify ownership and possibly even provide a purchase receipt. this is to prevent theft of laptops. if the unit is out of warranty, they may even charge you. in the event this is a windows logon password there is nt password reset software that can allow you to reset the administrators passwords. so...if the password comes on immediately and does not allow you to proceed to windows you need to contact hp. there really is not easy way around the bios password with a laptop.

goodluck!

Keyboard on our aptop is not working so i cant get past the vista user password screen . any ideas ?


a usb keyboard will do the trick but you have to start the laptop with the keyboard plugged in, you can use that to activate the on screen keyboard if you desire until you work out what is wrong with the laptop keyboard and if you need to replace it

Good luck

Toughbook CF-18 Supervisor Passwd


Toughbook CF18, CF-18
How to remove the BIOS Supervisor Password:

Open all covers and openings. Remove hard drive and battery. Remove bottom of notebook. Many many tiny screws.
Now look towards the rear of the notebook. You will see 2 plugs both have a red and black wires. The one with the much smaller wires and connector is the BIOS battery. Use a pair of needle nose pliers and remove this plug.

Leave it off for 5-15 minutes.

Leave the BIOS battery plug off. Replace the laptop's main battery. Leave the hard drive out. Turn the unit over and turn it on.
Press F2 when the screen comes up. POOF! NO PASSWORD!

Go to Security and disable the password. Save configuration. Turn off the notebook. Replace the small connector. Turn it back over and turn it back on. Press F2 and verify that there is no password. Go to Security and Disable the password again. Save the configuration.
Put the bottom back on. You're done.

NOW FOR THE BAD NEWS!!!
Your hard drive is now dead. Replace it. When a supervisor password is used it locks the hard drive to that password. There is NO WAY to recover the hard drive. It is called an ATA security password. Without the ATA password the hard drive is completely useless.
