When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode.
Then enter in admin account then change or reset password of your user account in control panel.
But if your brother set administrator password and you forgot it then you need winxp recovery disk.

Try reinstalling the touchpad drivers.

Get online and got to In the google search box type: "eMachines Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Touchpad drivers.

I have a brothers sx-4000 typewriter, i recently bought new ink ribbon. But for some reason my typewriter still does not print the letters at all. I know my typewriter is still good, I dont know why it...

There are two things that people mess up when changing printwheels and ribbons. Is that the ribbon is not in the guides properly. The other is that the latch the holds the type wheel is not locked in the forward position.

My administrator password

I dont understand the question, what about your admin password, did you lock it if you didnt set one then there is no password,
restart computer and click f7 as soon as it turns on, you will see a screen that says safemode, click safemode then administrator should be a user you can click on, try signing on without a password, if it wont let you then you have only a few choices,
If there isnt one and your having trouble runnin something as administrator then set an easy password on your admin account and use it every time. or make your username a Admin

Wireless network does not show up on computer 2wire

First, if no other networks show up also, then make sure the wireless switch on your computer is on. Its usally a on/off switch on the laptop itself.

If that doesnt work, get a computer directly plugged into the 2wire, then login to it and change the power level.

To do this, open a browser (IE: Internet explorer) and type if that doesnt work try these "Home" , "" , ""

This will take you into the homepage for the router, click on home network at the top. Then click on the wireless settings link. This will prompt your for a password, enter it.

"If you dont know your password, click I forgot it will give you a hint. Click I still cant remember, to change it, it will as for either a system key (which is a 10-digit number on the bottom of the router) or a temp password (which you need to call the manufacture to change)"

After inside the wireless settings window, try changing the power level and channel around until you can get it to broadcast.

If none of this works make sure there isnt anything around the 2wire interfering, like portable phones and electronics.

When i turn on my emachines 420 at the mains, the led power light comes on, but it wont do anything else including turning on or off

Hello there,this sounds like a problem with your power supply unit inside the computer,emachines are always blowing there power supply because the one that comes with the computer just is not powerful enough.If you are confident enough around electrics you could nip into maplins buy a new psu for around £10 - £20(take the old one in and try to get one the same size and with the 3 pin kettle lead thing in the same place)if you cant dont worry you can make it fit somehow,dont worry about all the wires that are dangling about ,they are very easy to figure out where they go.I had a emachine computer a few year back the same thing happened so instead of scrapping it i thought i would try and fix it,you take the side of and it all looks complicated but believe me its a lot simpler then it looks(a bit like my boss really!)Anyway If you dont feel like you could give it a go then take it to the shop and they will fix it for you.If you need to know about anything else to do with changing the psu then let me know and i will talk you through it.Good luck.
