Can't log in - TouchPad does not work

My daughter was using my new laptop. She logged off instead of shutting it down. Now I can't log in. It says the computer has limited resources and to log in on an account that's already open. The touch pad does not seem to work either. Any solutions?

You you cannot navigate using Touchpad you can use "tab" key. if doesnt work also shut the computer by holding the power button about 5 seconds and restart the computer. If issue persist please post your question with model information of the computer, Operating system etc.

Good Luck

Cant find my new facebook account

Your daughter enabled the "Keep me log in" option. you have to log her account out first. to do this, on the top right of the facebook page, click on the Account and select "log out" from the drop down menu.

Try using separate user on your computer so you and your daughter won't share the same user. go to Control Panel > User setting > create a new user account

Unlock toshiba laptop

Some toshiba laptops have trouble with the touchpad locking up. I have tried using a wireless mouse and it has helped whenever the touchpad locks up. to unlock (I'm assuming you mean log in) you can click space instead of using the mouse.

When I log off my laptop ( hp pavilion dv5 1225ee) every thing be closed

I hope I can help!

This is a normal function in computers. When you log off, you are essentially shutting down your account. Everything should shutdown, including all of your programs. If you do not want this to happen, you probably want to either use the "standby" mode or just "switch users" instead of logging off. You still will want to shut your laptop down regularly as you would anyways, but this might help you in some situations.

I hope that helps!

The touchpad when I log in under the administrator works fine but when I log in under my daughters password the touchpad's pointer is not functional. I think she must have hit something for it to not work....

have you tried to plug in a USB mouse to this computer and tried that and if it works you have to go into the control panel and open the mouse settings and click the device settings tab and make sure that it is enabled

The touchpad is frozen and there is a orange light on and i need to go to the internet for important business supplies

This is probably not the best solution but it works. Push the Windows button on the keyboard (3rd from the right on the bottom row) Use your keyboard arrow keys and go to the right until the toggle box comes up with the log off, shut down, hibernate options. Using the arrow button make you laptop hibernate or sleep. Then turn it back on and your touchpad will work again.

Someone got on my laptop and did not log out. how do I let another guest sign on to get their email?

If the laptop is locked by that user, just power down the laptop by holding down the power button for 6 seconds, it will shut down.

If not, just log that user off and have someone else login.

You could also switch users instead of log off.

My laptop won't shut down properly!

Is it possible that you have changed the settings of what buttons do what on your system? E.g. you could have changed the power button to "switch user" instead of "shut down", to check this (in XP) go to "Power Options" (in Control Panel" and then click on the "Advanced tab" at the top, then select "Shut down" from the drop down menu at the bottom of the window.

If this is already set to shut down then maybe you could do a system restore in case another setting has been changed, restore it to before the PC started doing this.

Alternatively try actually choosing "Turn off Computer" from the Log On screen (press Ctrl + L to get to this screen, or choose switch user/log off). If you are using Vista I beleive that there is a shut-down option from the Log In Page there (which again you can access by pressing Ctrl + L on the keyboard.

Hope this helps!
