    I would also ask where you are trying to transfer data from and to and what users you are using (are you doing any of this as root?)

Depending on your linux distrobution, you will need to check the /etc/samba or /etc/smb configuration file, within that file there will be a place to set your windowsfile sharing password. then you will be able to transfer data across the local network between your linux / windows machine again..

however, if you've actually changed the password for the linux user account that enabled the samba file sharing, you will need to either remember that password, or set a new one from the root account byt typing the following command in a terminal / bash / shell session:

Task: Set or change user password Type passwd command as follows>
$ passwd <user>

Output: Changing password for <user>
Enter new password:
Retype new password:
passwd: password updated successfully
NOTE: when typing the password, you may not see the password you are typing..
You need to replace <user> with the username you are changing the password for.

Once I change bios password, how do i use it to change password at start up/user screen? Fujitsu lifebook model b6220 (windows installed).


Bios password is completely separate to windows password. The BIOS is Basic Input Output System and runs when you first switch the laptop on, performing a POST operation. Once the POST is finished, windows starts loading up from disk.

If you need to reset a windows password, for example if you have forgotten it, then you need to use a bootable Linux password reset utility. There is a free password reset utility which is part of the ultimate boot cd and can be downloaded as an iso file and burned to cd on a separate computer. Once the CD is created, put it into your laptop and boot up the system. Use the menus to choose under file utilities, Offline NT Password Tool and it will allow you to reset the password of whichever account you choose

I let my girlfriend use my notebook and it was a huge mistake. She installed a password that must be entered as soon as you turn the computer on. As soon as that is done im supposed to be able to boot


If you do not remember the password for your Windows, you will have to reset it by following the instructions mentioned on the following link:
http://www.fixya.com/support/t24940481-says_am_not_putting_right_password

Once you have reset the password, you can disable the login screen (if you do not want the login window to come-up while booting) by following the instructions mentioned on the following link:

Partition 320gb hard disk xp


If you remove the hard drive from the computer and convert it into a desktop hard drive you would have to go into the bios settings and change the boot-up order from dvd or hard drive to usb. Check first that your computer can actually BOOT from usb (look in the bios settings to see if this option is listed). Depending on the age of the computer you may not have the boot from usb option.
I don't use Mac. Never used one. However, I do use Linux. On a partitioned hard drive Linux can 'see' into Windows and you can transfer things from Windows into Linux. However, Windows can't 'see' into Linux at all. Windows knows that the linux partition is there but just can't access it. This is normal.
It would appear that your computer is more or less doing the same, for whatever reason, even though it was working fine a while ago.
Maybe Linux would be able to access the Mac side of things in your computer? I don't honestly know. But it would be able to access the Windows 7 side of things. Why not try a 4th partition with Linux on?
Linux Ubuntu is a free download. Download the image, burn it to dvd and then restart your computer. It will give you the option of either using the entire hard drive for installation, or putting it in its own partition. You can also install Ubuntu on a usb pen and boot your computer from that (if you have the boot from usb in your bios settings). More information and download is available at http://www.cavalrystorage.com/download.aspx
It may be the actual usb port that is worn, not the cable. The front ports on my desktop are so worn as to be unuseable

Forgot my login password for my compaq nootbook laptop how do i get into my laptop without it???? my laptop doesnt have safe mode option or to sign in as a guest


There's a workaround, but requires Linux and some other tools, the best thing is to reinstall Windows with your recovery disks, you may buy a new drive and tell someone to transfer your data

What programming language can i use in linux


you can use c,c++ by default no need to install the extra software like in windows ..

LINUX comes with the softwares just like office suite,programming tools,web designing tools,etc and drivers inbuilt in it ...
so once you install the LINUX you will be having almost all the required softwares inbuilt in it including music player,video player,etc

if you want you can install the extra softwares too but the softwares use in windows doesnt work with linux you must download the separate software for linux ....

linux is best in security wise because no virus will attack to LINUX as the viruses are very less developed as there are scarcity in users of linux and there is no chance of hacking the password in linux like in windows this is because of the greater security used in the linux ....

linux stores the password by making use of shadowing .. so upto this time nobody is unable to hack the password ...
