  • Anonymous Mar 01, 2008

    My daughters graduated to their own more spohisticated lap tops some time ago and I inherited their older Compaq nx 9010. They shared it and never bothered with passwords they simply turned it on and signed in..I have used it ,off line, for word pad and some personal and financial records for several months and never changed anything..I decided I wanted to travel with it and wanted security so opted to enter a password and user name..... I have absolutly no idea if I incorrectly had caps on or if there was a typo . I have tried many many permutations of what I thought (my standard password/username , a slight variation on a theme for a memory aid ) I had entered but am still locked out. Is there anyway to clear whatever my error was and start over? Thanks for any light you may shed on this( so my daughters call me) severly challenged computer Dad.

Need pasword for harddrive lock on a450sx4

The one solution is to do a disc format, this will erase the password and all personal data, second option go to type hard drive password, there is software that will help crack the password without personal loss of data.

It lock an i forgot my pasword

This can be a bit difficult, if you do not have any other accounts installed on your pc, then you may need to use software such as ophcrack which is fairly simple.

Please follow this video guide. Good luck on getting back onto your account.

boot up in safemode and change your password. or next time write down your passwords, or download last pass. last pass will remember passwords for you and you can make your own and if you ever forget one u can check your log file

Have you added any hardware since it last worked OK such as RAM or changed the HD? If so take it out and try again. Have you changed any BIOS settings? If so set them back to how they were and try again?

Did the system crash and you are trying to reformat it? If so you may have an HD or HD Controller problem.

Does your system boot from the Op Sys CD / DVD? If so leave it doing nothing for up to 60 mins to make sure the system is not overheating. If it crashes while you are doing nothing then it could be any number of problems but most likely are RAM problems, CPU problems and HD problems. You could try downloading a copy of PCHealth or SiSoft Sandra to try out and diagnose the system to see if it reports any issues.

Failing all that then take it to a repoair shop for an estimate!

I was working on my laptop at uni, had to switch it of because of battery, when i got home i cant open my computer as it says this computer is in use and is lockeed, i have a password but that is blank, so...

the computer is locked because you are on the univeristys' network. you logon.
Ctrl+Alt+del, select more option. select your local computer name, type n your name and press enter (Since your pasword is blank).

Laptop won't BOOT


This is VIkram Kumar Thumu from India- Hyderabad. I have seen your message at this web site... and I would like to provide my solution on the issue.

Well, the message " 1-07 test failed " by HDD test in BIOS confirms that Hard Disk Drive of your Laptop is gone bad .
Hence to resolve the issue, need to replace a new Hard Disk Drive for your notebook.

I am sure that this will resolve the issue.

If you have any queries or issues you can mail at I'll be glad to answer ...

Thank you.
