Question about Acer Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I can't correct my password and get into my computer--

It has a feature with blue keys that changes the letters that are typed once the blue keys are hit. My password types with no letters showing, so I have no idea what is being typed. I've tried every password I can, and I think I can't get my password correct because the blue letters are on, but since I can't see what's being typed, I can't correct it. Help?

Keyboard layout is as follows.

TOP ROW: QWERTYUIOP
MIDDLE ROW: ASDFGHJKL
BOTTOM ROW:ZXCVBNM

If you're saying you just can't see the keyboard keys, that should help. If it doesn't, I suggest getting a hold of a USB keyboard other than the malfunctioning one you have now.

SOURCE: zd8000 keyboard is skipping letters and spaces

Hey I have an HP zd8000 also and I've experienced everything that you guys mentioned. What's a laptop without a battery if you can't take it anywhere? After two years, I got so frustrated. I researched HP's web site and came across a battery recall. I just got mines in the mail today (Dec. 1, 2008), and my notebook is portable again! :D They will ask for your battery serial number. While typing the serial number be sure not to mix up the letter 'B' with the number '8', or else it will show as invalid serial. This is the link for the HP Battery Replacement Program!

You need to press the NUM Lock key.
The NUM lock key is usually the same key as the ScrLk key but to select the NUM lock you need to press and hold down the Shift key and then press the NumLk/ScrLk key. A LED light will light up to indicate the number keypad is on.

SOURCE: one of the key on my laptop keypad is not working

I suspected your keyboard is already faulty. You might need to change it. Call the service hotline for the brand of your machine and tell them to replace your keyboard.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

Password reset on dell 518


Reset Your Windows Password Using the Command Prompt

1. Boot your computer using your Windows installation disc.
2. Wait for the setup files to load, and select your language. Click Next.
3. Click the Repair your computer link on the Install Windows screen.
4. Select the operating system to repair, and note the drive letter on which the OS is installed (it is probably C: or D:). Click Next.
5. Click Command Prompt at the bottom of the list of recovery tools.
Now you need to overwrite the Sticky Keys executable with the Command Prompt executable. Sticky Keys is an accessibility feature that allows a user to tap the Shift, Ctrl, Alt, or Windows key once to achieve the same effect as holding the key down. Ordinarily, tapping Shift five times activates Sticky Keys--but with this trick, you are going to make tapping Shift five times activate the Windows Command Prompt instead.
The instructions below use drive letter C: as an example. If your operating system is installed on another drive, replace C: with the appropriate drive letter.
1. In the Command Prompt window, type copy c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe c:\ and press Enter.
2. Type copy /y c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe and press Enter.
3. Exit the Command Prompt and reboot the computer. At the login screen, tap Shift five times. The Command Prompt will pop up.
4. Type net user username password, replacing username with your username and password with a new password.
5. Exit the Command Prompt, and log in using your new password.
To prevent another user from exploiting the same trick to reset your password, you can restore Sticky Keys as follows:
1. Step through the instructions above to boot the PC using your Windows installation disc, open the recovery tools, and launch the Command Prompt.
2. Type copy /y c:\sethc.exe c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe and press Enter.
3. Exit the Command Prompt and reboot the computer. Pressing Shift five times will now activate Sticky Keys instead of the Command Prompt. Store your Windows installation disc in a secure location.

I cant sign in to yahoo messenger it keeps on telling me that my user name and password is incorrect but i had already re type it 20 times but still it keeps on saying that. what shall i do? thnaks


Double check and make sure your caplock key isn't on and that you don't have a stuck key. You can check this by typing in notepad or an email, type your password and look at it. Once you see that it's typing the correct password (and correct case, ie capital letters or not) you can try copying the password and pasting it into yahoo login and see if it works then. Because you can't see a password as you type it this often helps.

Also think about if you used a capital letter or perhaps spelled something slightly different when you picked your nick name and password.

I am locked out of my account. It says invalid password. Help me please. I have had the same id and password for over five years


Try to relog in after a few hours, it might be temporarily blocked due to excessive log in attempt.

If you think you typed your password correctly, check the following:
  • Is your CAPS LOCK key on? Passwords are case-sensitive, which means that "PASSWORD," "PaSsWoRd," and "password" are seen by Yahoo! as three different passwords. Try typing your password again, making sure to use uppercase and lowercase letters exactly as you typed them when you created your password.
  • Did you sign in with the correct ID? Make sure that you are using the correct ID (user name) when signing in to your account. If you have forgotten your ID, you can search for your ID online.
  • Have you changed your password within the last 24 hours? If you recently requested a new password or changed your password, wait 24 hours before typing your new password. Waiting allows your account to update. Otherwise, if you've entered your password too many times, you'll be locked out of your account for 24 hours from the last time you entered your password. This is a security feature. A good work around before you change your password is to close your browser, go to the Sign In page, clear your browser's cache, and carefully type your password again.
  • Delete your cookies. If your cookie isn't being accepted correctly, you'll be logged out of your account as soon as you move to a different page. To delete your cookies, follow the instructions in the online help for your browser. For example, in Internet Explorer 7.0 and 8.0, from the Help menu, select Internet Explorer Help, and then type delete cookies in the Search box:
  • Try another browser. For example, if you're using Firefox, try Internet Explorer instead.
If you're still having problems, please request a new password. After you receive your new password, you can change it.

How to use the wireless key


Hi,

Wireless keys are like your secret password. Provided you have a wireless router and wireless devices to access internet - You might want to secure the wireless signals emitted by the router to ensure that your neighbour is not using free internet :-). So all you do is access the router's setup page and under wireless tab enable the wireless security feature.

Wireles security generally of two types
- WEP
- WPA

select the one suits best to your network and save the changes. once you are done with the router - you will now search for wireless network from your computer/s and select the network. The router will now ask you to type the password (the one you eariler entered on the router). Enter the correct password and you will be connected. Now your neighbours can see your network but cannot access it unless you share your password with them.

Need to change password from previously changed password


To secure the wireless network or to change any settings on the router you will need to access the router set up interface.
Open the set up interface of the router . Make sure that your computer will be connected to the router with the Ethernet cable.

Once you open the set up page of the router , you will find the place to change the wireless settings of the router. In case of Linksys wireless router , you will see the Wireless Tab at the top.

SSID : It is the name of the wireless network. This name will be shown on your wireless computer or the wireless device so that you can identify your own wireless network. All the routers come with their factory default settings. For example , the Linksys router will come with the Linksys network name.
It will be better to change the wireless network name.


Wireless Security

Change the security mode to WEP. This security type is supported by all the operating system. When change the security mode to WEP, you will find the Network key box to type the network key. Do not type anything in the Passphrase box. Type your network key in the Key 1 Box. If you set the encryption to 65 bits, your network key will be 10 digit hexadecimal number. that means you can use the combination of 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and letters a,b,c,d,e,f only. remember it should be exactly 10.
If you set the Encryption to 128 bit, your network key will be the combination of 26 digits. You will need to remember the network key.

WPA

This is one of the most secured type of encryption.
Open the set up interface of the router. Change the wireless security mode to WPA personal. You will find the passphrase box. in this box you can type any password for your wireless network. The password should be the combination of number and letters and it should be 8 or more than 8 characters.
This security type is supported by WINDOWS XP SP2 and above Operating system.

WPA2
This is one of the highly secured type of encryption.
Open the set up interface of the router. Change the wireless security mode to WPA personal. You will find the passphrase box.In this box you can type any password for your wireless network. The password should be the combination of number and letters and it should be 8 or more than 8 characters. Keep the Algorithm to TKIP.
This security type is supported by WINDOWS VISTA and above.

Once you change the wireless settings on the router , try to connect to the new wireless network

My keyboards shortcuts don't link to the screen?


F5 is the default screen refresh for many laptops. If there is a volume change feature on your laptop which also uses F5, chances are it is a Feature enabled key. To make the volume work, look on your laptop for a key most with blue letters that is printed with the letters "Fn"

Hold down this key while pressing the F5 key. This should adjust the volume correctly. Did it work. Please post your feedback and let me know.

Thanks!

Can't unlock my laptop.


Check if the numlock is on, on some systems it acts as the blue f[ fn ] key (Function) and it changes some of the letters as a numeric pad. The best way to test this is to type the password in the name field and see if its correct. Another thing you can try is entering Administrator as the name with no password.
