It means that the BIOS is locked with a password. And you do not know it. Now the only solution is to open the bottom plates and locate a button cell on the motherboard. Remove this cell for a few minutes and replace it. Then place the plates back on the laptop and power on the laptop. Your BIOS password will be blanked. If by chance it happens to be the WIndows password, then you will have to reinstall Windows. But I feel that it is the BIOS password and not Windows.

Bottom oven stopped working there is a key symbol showing on the panel what is wrong ?


There are a few reasons for this. One is the most obvious and that is the child lock switch needs to be engaged to unlock.Some models call it panel lock.
Turning the panel lock on and off:
To turn the panel lock on, press and hold the Panel Lock key for four seconds. The Panel Lock symbol will appear in the display.
To turn the panel lock off, press and hold the Panel Lock key for four seconds. The message in the display will disappear.

Kenmore ultra wash machine won't run even with indicator lights on. Symbol on machine says Lock on


You have the control-lock function turned on. There should be a key located near (above or below) the lighted lock symbol. Usually, it's the Heated Dry button. Whatever it is, press and hold that key for 5 seconds. That should unlock your dishwasher and you can now use it normally.

Where is the number lock key on the dell inspiron im5030


there is a large hole in the keypad user manual for the keypad on your laptop almost as if there is no number lock installed
the closest that I can get on the net is that the function key adds extra keys to the board
however with out a board to practice on that is not much use
next suggestion is to take the laptop to a dell service agent( maybe a shop that retails dell products ) and see if there is anyone there with information on the keyboard that can show you how to get the number lock to operate
It has to be on the board probably in the layers of the function key and with help it will be revealed
on a normal board the number lock has a small square box with 1in it
so that symbol appearing when function is used may be the key you want

The computer is on and the screen is black. There is a green light on the Lock with the 9 in the middle of it on the upper left of the labtop? It has a malware virus on it and we are trying fix it by...


Hello,
Please go to safe mode using administrator account and check whether it is entering or not? the 9 light shows the num lock is on and it could be turned off by pressing num lock or Fn num lock combo. This will also ensure (if num lock is working) that the issue is woth software.
