Boot up problem

I have a 4 year old HP Pentium 950 series with MS XP -home OS. My computer will work for a while, boot up and all then it stops and when I try to boot up it gives a dos message that says "operating system not found." I have just looked into setup and the primary and slave are greyed out. My DVD doesn't play sound - it plays though. If my sound card is going out could it be affecting my boot up?
Help me! I don't want to buy another computer if I can get this one to work again. After it gives me the DOS message above, it might be 3 weeks, with constant trying to boot up - maybe 25 times or so, them viola! - it boots up. Thank you for your assistance.

I have a Sony desktop and my desktop is lock I forgot my password


When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there


The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard.

Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself.

Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

cmos battery Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment. Although on some motherboards the Cmos battery is soldered in

Often many users will leave the administrator account alone or have other accounts with administrator rights. If you're not logging into the computer as administrator or have other accounts follow the below steps to reset your other accounts password.

Reboot the computer into Safe Mode
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer Advanced Boot Options screen appears.

Select the Safe Mode option using the up and down arrow keys, then press the ENTER key. Choose "Windows XP Home/Professional", depending on the version of the operating system.

Press ENTER. Shortly, the welcome screen should show.
Log in as "Administrator". Click Yes to not use System Restore Mode.


Click the Start button. Choose Run and type in "control user passwords" (without the quotes). Click OK.


Select the "Administrator" user. Click Change my password. Enter a new password in the corresponding text boxes. Click OK. Write this password down and store it in a secure place Close the User Accounts window and restart Windows.


In User Accounts select the account you wish to change the password for, click change password and then enter the new password or click remove the password to remove the password from the account. Hope it helps

I'm locked out my labtop and its a dell I can't remember my password


Either boot from the Windows CD and format the drive and reinstall Windows.


Or, look for a free suite of programs call HiRens
-Burn it to disk and boot your system from it (Put it in the cd drive and restart - it should be picked up by default, if not, you'll have to change the boot order in the BIOS)
-Use a program on the disk called Active Password Changer

This will let you reset all local user account passwords.

There is not much else you can do if you don't know any logon passwords. But HiRens works for me everytime I need to do this on a users system.

I changed the NIC card in my HP pavilion and now my machine will not power up. It was working fine prior to this. Could I have blown a fuse or something? Any suggestions?


While there isn't a "fuse" to blow, there are several things that could prevent your system from booting after making hardware change. However, there is a distinct difference between not booting and not powering on, and for further troubleshooting we'd need to know which is the problem. In the mean time, here are some things to consider:
1. An incredibly small amount of static electricity can short your motherboard and prevent the system from booting at all. Whenever you do any time of hardware update or configuration change, always where an electrostatic discharge wristband to prevent damage to your system.
2. If you somehow unseated the processor from the motherboard during your upgrade, then the processor would lose some of its ability to dissipate heat, which would cause an automatic shutdown.
3. It is possible that you loosened a wire/jumper/plug that was integral to the boot system of your computer.

Instructions
  1. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep1 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.1-800X800.jpg'); }); Make sure you have run the Network Setup Wizard on each of your computers, even if you have configured it manually. Your file and printer sharing are disabled until you run the wizard at least once.
  2. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep2 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.2-800X800.jpg'); }); If the problem is that some of your computers appear in My Network Places or View Work group Computers, while others do not, wait about 20 minutes or so and then check again. If all computers still do not appear, and you have older versions of Windows running, like Windows 9x or Me on your network, restart the Windows XP computers, wait for about 3 to 4 minutes then start up your older computers. Wait for a few minutes then check again. If that does not work try booting your computers in various orders.
  3. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep3 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.3-800X800.jpg'); }); On each of your computers, click Start, My Computer, select My Network Places, and then select View Network Connections Look for the Local Area Network Icon. See if the Icon says "disconnected". If the answer is yes then you have a problem with your cables or your network adapter. Repair before proceeding.
  4. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep4 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.4-800X800.jpg'); }); Now, look to see if any of your Local Area Connection Icons say "Firewalled" next to them. If you find this problem then Your Windows Connection Firewall might be blocking printer and file sharing on that computer. Go to your Firewall Protection and make the needed changes.
  5. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep5 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.5-800X800.jpg'); }); Another thing to try is to go to start and right click on My Computer and choose Properties. View the computer Name tab. Each of your computers should have a different name and the same work group name on it. If they do not have different names then you will have to change them. Restart your computers you adjusted and see if this made a difference.
  6. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep6 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.6-800X800.jpg'); }); You can also try something else by going to each computer and click Start, All Programs, Accessories and then Command Prompt. In the Command Prompt window, type ipconfig and then press Enter. Under the Local Area Command Prompt entry, Windows should show you a different address for each of your computers. If any of your computers have the same address or if the addresses are not similar, then you will need to repair this before proceeding.
  7. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep7 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.7-800X800.jpg'); }); In the same Prompt Window as above and from only one computer, use the ping command to see if that computer can communicate with each of your other computers. To do this, type x.x.x.x in the Command Prompt Window. You are substituting the actual I.P address of your other computers for x.x.x.x in turn. You should be seeing several Reply from lines each time you do this. If any computer does not respond, then you have a cable or hardware problem. Repair this first then proceed with further tests.
  8. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep8 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.8-800X800.jpg'); }); Make sure that all of your computers have the same network protocols.
  9. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep9 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a05/k7/ln/troubleshoot-_a-home-network-1.9-800X800.jpg'); }); If you still are having trouble with your Windows Network you may have to call in a professional or a computer experienced friend to help you.

Checking voice mail remotely


for this model of phone, you perform the following:
1- Call the phone, wait for the machine to answer
----if the machine is on, it should answer within about 4 rings and begin playing your answering machine message
----if the machine is off, it will still answer after about 10 rings with a series of beeps
2- During the message (or beeps if it is off) press 0 and then enter your 2 digit PIN code. This should get you remote access to the phone. from there you can follow the menu structure that the phone tells you. If you never entered a PIN code, that's not a problem. the default code for this model of phone is 80.

you have about 15 seconds to enter a command, all commnds are two digit (01 through 10) and the digits must be entered within 2 seconds of eachother for the command to hold.

follow those directions and you'll be checking your messages in no time flat.
