Out of the box, these devices are wide open so your laptop should be able to find it - the default SSID should be "linksys." If you're trying to connect to someone else's wireless network, you'd need to speak with them about configuring their device to permit your laptop. If it's your device, I'd need more information about how you configured the block to determine how to unconfigure it. You can be prevented from gaining access by a variety of methods, including WEP, WPA or WPA2 security keys, MAC filtering, time-of-day filtering, port filtering, etc. Depending on your circumstances, you might even consider factory-defaulting the device and starting over.

My computer is automatic shutdown

Have you cleaned the fan, vents, heatsink? If a laptop overheats, due to dust, poor ventilation, blocked vents, it will shut down to prevent damage to vital components. Clean, improve air flow through the bottom and out the vents. Never use on soft surfaces that can block air flow. Contrary to the name, Laptop, it's not good to use on your lap. Go figure? If the Laptop is Clean and air flow isn't a problem, open Power Settings in Control Panel,and change Advanced Power settings to Sleep/Hibernate to Never, set to High Performance, unplug and remove battery when not in use. If you use mostly on AC remove battery.

School blocks

Mmmmmmmmm, NO

A) The administrator is the owner of the laptop, or a designated individual. The school has such a person designated, and it isn't you.
That person has the administrative rights in adding, or replacing software, and possibly hardware.

B) IF you should by chance break into the laptop, and change ANY administrative settings, the school will find out.
Depends on their policy as to what they wish to do.

Most of the time it is remove the laptop from the student - FOREVER, and possibly school set punishment.

How to disable drivelock password

The Compaq drivelock feature is designed to protect the data on a laptop's hard drive by assigning a password.

This password protects the drive in the event the laptop is lost or stolen, but can be removed when necessary.

Knowing how to remove or change the drivelock feature can make your Compaq more useful and more secure.

Power on your laptop and enter the drivelock password you established when you turned the drive protection feature on.

You will need this password to access the drive and turn off the drivelock feature.

Click the "Disabled" option in the drivelock menu.

This will turn off the drivelock feature on the Compaq laptop.

Do not enter anything in the password blocks.

Log on to the laptop, click the "Start" button and choose "Shut down." Choose "Restart" from the menu to power cycle your laptop and verify the drivelock setting is off.

If the drivelock setting is off you will not be prompted for a password when the laptop starts up.

hope this helps

My desktop computer has encourntered the OFOO: 1A44 error. Unfortunately, prior to finding this site (using my laptop), my desktop no longer boots up. So I cannot install the missing driver while on that...

It looks like you need a new hard disk. While bad blocks on the disk can be bypassed by repair programs. It's inevitable that more blocks will fail in the future. If the Dell computer is still under warranty they will send you a new disk. If you remove the disk and use a USB adapter you can copy your data to another computer.

Good Luck

How do i unblock sites that have been blocked on my laptop?

this depends on how exactly they were blocked.

If it's being done by a "netnanny" type program, you will need the username and password for the software.

If they have been blocked through your router, then the block would need to be removed from there, if you have access to it.

Googling and get it.For further help plz contact.

Laptop seems to be overheating

Best thing to do, take a can of air and where the air vents are, blow the air into there and it should remove any dust or dirt that could be blocking the way. If there is debris in the way, then that would cause the fan to run louder then normal cause its taking more for the fan to cool off the laptop.

The absolute best way is if you could take the laptop apart and where the heatsink is on top of the CPU there could be a big piece of dirt blocking the air vent and where the cpu heatsink sits. You could physicially remove it.

Either way if you go thru both of these steps and the laptop is still overheating then you know at that point the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.
