Laptop shutdown Hello all, first of all I had to change my email address for I couldn't log on with my past email..I tried the forgot password three times and still couldn't log on..So heres the problem I had before and tried all your suggestions with no results..I turn on my laptop and about thirty seconds later it shuts off..Ok I tried these suggestions you all gave me. first I cleaned the fan and reapplied new heat sink ..no change. Then I looked at the motherboard, looking for any abnormal leaks or overheated capacitors,No results. Then yesterday I replaced the motherboard and believe it or not the same problem...the only thing I could think of is maybe a bad cpu or any other component other than the motherboard..I hope someone could help me..Thanks...michael

Perhaps its your power supply, memory, cpu. My bet would be the power supply.

Forgot apple id and password


Your Apple ID and password is the key to gaining access to the App Store, and Apple has a username and password locator tool to recover forgotten information.
Your Apple ID is usually the same as the primary email address attached to the account, and cannot be deleted once created.
As a security precaution, Apple resets your account password and allows you to create a new one rather than display the previous password.

Visit the Apple Forgot ID page, and click "Forgot Your Apple ID?" underneath the text field.
Enter your first and last name, current email address and up to three previous email addresses. Click "Next" to use the Apple ID locator to pull up all Apple accounts linked to the entered email addressees.

Click "Email authentication" and click "Next" to have the Apple ID sent to your email address. Open your email account, and open the message from Apple.
The message contains a link that redirects you to the password reset screen.

Enter the new password, and reenter it in the confirmation box.
Click "Reset Password" to submit the changes.
A confirmation email is sent to your email account with the name of your Apple ID and a confirmation of the new password.
Click "App Store" on your Macintosh's desktop dock and click "Store" on the application's menu. Click "Sign In" and enter your Apple ID and password.
Click "Sign In" to log into your account.

How do i change e mail address on facebook when old one is shut down and cant log on to change


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You will have to make another Facebook. You won't be able to use your old email account. You need to make a new one. This is the only way to get around this. Facebook will no longer be able to read your old email and there is no other way to get your information on the old account. Sorry. Everything will have to be new.

you can try to log on as the administrator and see if you can change your password back. Unless you have changed the admin password you should still be able to log in as either 'admin' with no password, 'administrator' with no password or either one with the password 'admin'. Some computers use admin others use administrator. I hope it works out for you! Good luck.
