Re: option to set pin and safemode
Ok, a couple of stupid questions here - it sounds like you have posted this before. If so, I did not see the post or responses, so forgive me if I repeat anything. At the bottom of that screen it should say Restore. Does it, and have you pressed this? Also, have you tried resetting the unit either with the reset button or using the master reset? What happened?
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Your GPS have software lockups.U can't turn it off because your GPS it is fully charged with power for the unit with litium battery.You still can get in the menu and still have all the functions of the GPS unit wright?Yes?Reset all your setting back to factory settings,you should have all the controls for the GPS unit back to normal again.
Which GPS and Dog collar do you have? If this is the Garmin Astro and DC units, the manuals are available here: https://buy.garmin.com/support/manuals/manuals.htm?partNo=010-00596-01 Page 4 explains how to set the backlit on the Astro Page 13 explains how to set the update rate for the dog collar Page 44 explains how to set the unit for battery saver mode
To register your garmin you connect it to your computer with the mini USB cable
Go to www.garmin.com and select your country from the drop-down list
Click on the "myGarmin" tab at the top of the screen
Click on "Register your garmin product" at the left side of the screen
Click on "Automotive" and follow the prompts.
You'll be asked to create a username and password. Keep them safe as you'll need them anytime you want to update your maps.
If you want to set a PIN number on your satnav which it will look for each time you turn it on;
Press TOOLS on the bottom right corner of the screen which shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP
Press GARMIN LOCK
It will ask you for a 4 digit pin. Also you'll be given the option to set a secure location. Be sure to do so and use a place that you can get to easily and where you have around 20 feet clear space around you. If you forget the PIN number the only way to remove the pin is to go to this secure location. As the GPS is not 100% accurate when you return to this location the satnav may think you're a few feet out and you may need to move around for it to unlock. This is why you need the space around where you set it.
I believe you should try LKGC (Last Known Good configuration) before using a recovery disc. Follow the steps below,
Step 1: Shut down your PC completely. Step 2: Turn on the Power button. Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.) Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Last know good configuration". Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER.
There is an issue with your User profile on the computer.
The option that you can do is to boot to safe mode with networking,
you need to press F8, after you turn on the computer to get to the boot menu screen to choose safemode with networking. then choose to log in to admin account. After logging in kindly create a new user account. And then reboot to normal mode again and log on to the new user account you created.
If you cannot log on to safemode with networking, you can choose the Last Known Good Configuration option.
Thank you for using Fixya, you recommendation is highly appreciated for the free support.
Check to see if this problem follows in safe mode. Reboot and when the Dell splash screen comes up tap F8 until you see the multiboot options. Scroll to "safe Mode with Networking" let the machine boot up and see if you have a screen. If you do, right click on the desktop and set the resolution to 800 X600 and reboot normally. Usually when a screen goes blank in normal mode but shows up in safe mode means you have an incompatible resolution for the monitor or graphics adapter. This may be a driver issue or hardware. If the screen boots up in normal mode at the lower resolution, then try and go to properties again and bump the resolution up a bit, if it blanks again, try to go online and update the driver for the graphics chip.
Sounds like its simply going into power save mode. Does your screen come back on when you move the mouse or press a key on the keyboard? Is the computer still on? Check your power options in control panel.
