Remove the cmos battery. The cmos, ( complemetary metal oxide semiconductor ) is a memory chip that stores the bios for computers. If that lock icon is pointing to bios , remove the cmos battery, located on the mother board will fix the problem. For removal and replacement refer the the hardware maintenance manual for t61.

This laptop has a power on password. There are no backdoor passwords available and removing in BIOS battery won't fix this problem because the password is stored on an EEPROM chip.
I'm not sure which EEPROM chip is used in you model laptop, but if it is the Atmel 24RF08 chip then you can hack into this to recover the password. For information on how to do this go to :-

My blackberry is stuck on the lock screen. I reset it a couple of times, it didnt work. I try typing in password, it doesn't work. But the screen works properly, because it shows that I have new bbms,...


I think your password to unlock screen is not correct one, try to remember your password again. If still not remember and you need that phone so urgent, you can unlock blackberry curve 8520 screen password by typing any password until you fails 10 times. Your blackberry will be erase all your data including your password and you can setup new password again after your blackberry unlocked. Good luck!

My laptop turned off and now its asking for a primary user hdd password witch i dont have how do i unlock it?


You have to unlock the hard drive from within BIOS if you don't want to see that screen again. However, if you don't know that password then the laptop is not going to usable by you. Normally this prevents access to a computer in case someone steals it, since the thief won't know the hdd password and can't unlock it to access any data.

Cant connect my sons nintendo 3ds to the internet


Hello. For setting up an internet connection with your Nintendo 3DS, you have to follow these easy steps:

1. Turn on your console and go to System Settings
2. Tap Internet Settings
3. Tap Connection Settings
4. Tap New Connection
5. Tap Manual Setup
6. Tap Search for Access Point (Here, your Nintendo will search for any wireless connections in range. You will see a status message: Access point found)
7. Look for a Wireless connection (if it's not yours, you have to know the password in order to acces other's connections) Every locked/unlocked connection has a lock/unlock icon. Acces the unlocked icon and then you are connected!

Note: If you didn't manage it / if you don't know your wireless security key / if you are not sure which wireless connection is yours or if you don't see any, please leave a REPLY.

I hope I helped!

My F22 monitor had been appear OSD locked and i don't know how to solve it. Some buddy please help me!!!


important notes
1. what is displayed on the monitor comes from the system unit
2. possible features that could be displayed on the monitor are screen savers or splash screens
3. attempting to log on a computer with a screen saver passcode could lock the system by displaying the word locked requiring unlocking

procedure of unlocking a passcode
1.Once the system locks, would require to reset the password.
2. another function could be displayed on next to the lock icon prompting unlock or reset
3. in the absence of a display of unlocking the password, continue to enter the wrong password and hiting the logon button in a space provided next to the unlock icon prompt
4. severall attempts would prompt for a reset functionality.
5. at which instance would display a password hint of what has been locked.
6. the password hint provided must be guessed correctly to allow a reset functionality.
7. once hint provided allows for reset would prompt the user to create a new password
8. create a password with a hint as a key to reseting any future locked screens.
9. the screen could be operated without a password for an alternative, only made possible during after unlocking the locked screen. instead of creating a new password and hint, choose to disable screen savers altogether.

Unable to unlock screen


The A with a lock icon is the symbol for the capslock. maybe the reason why you cannot log back on is that it's not accepting your password because you have the caps lock on.
