What are my outstanding traffic fines

We can't help you with stuff like this at Fixya, especially with no details apart from a reference number. That type of information is also confidential to you only.

Contact your local court, or visit the court website and see if there a section where you can register to access your account details.

Something about cookies .i cant get into my hotmail

Why not just do a System Restore to a point (date and time) before you started turning stuff off? I'm not sure which operating system you have but in windows Xp and Vista you get to system restore by clicking Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore... Once it is up you can select a date and time for which to restore, they are called Restore Points.

Don't worry, System Restore does not cause you to lose any data, documents, music, pictures or videos. You could lose a Program that was installed after the restore point.

On the other hand, System Recovery LOSE EVERYTHING. It sets your system back to the point of when you first purchased it.

It worked before but then said it cant be detected at all

What cant be detected? That error usually means that either a peripheral device (such as a printer, camera or MP3 player) or an internal board (such as a modem, network card, or keyboard or touch pad) is not being recognized by the machine. Generally the error will say what it cant detect, something like "Network not detected" or "Unable to detect video board"

You have not supplied us with vital information to assist you. To give you the specific fix we would need Make & Model of your laptop, what operating system you have loaded (which version of Windows or is it one of the Linux systems) but I will try to help you narrow it down.

First disconnect all wires from the laptop except the power cord. Now turn on the power switch. If you get an error, come back and tell us exactly what it says.

Then start plugging in your peripheral devices (printer, USBs, network, camera, MP3) ONE device at a time. Each time you plug one device give it a minute or two to see it that new device is detected. Lets say that you plug a device and it does not get detected properly, you probably should start by reloading the software drivers for that device.

Start with this and write us back and well give you the next steps.

I cant access the rest of my laptops memory. The memory is separated into 2 files names acer and data and i cant access 'data' .help??

You are not talking about memory - you are talking about the hard drive. It is split into two partitions, one for the operating system and the other (named data) for storage of your files (pictures, music etc.). If you can see the data partition when you look in MY COMPUTER but you can't open it, it may need formatting. If you format it un-necessarily, you will lose EVERYTHING that is stored on that partition. Formatting can be done with your operating system (no other program is necessary) but you need to be sure there is nothing on the DATA partition that you don't want to lose.

Locked out on Log on window no password

If I am understand correctly you cannot access Windows Desktop due to not having the Windows Password? If so, I would turn off your computer then turn it back on and immediately start tapping F11 OR F10 which should start System Recovery which will start your computer's settings back to default and windows which means you will then be able to create your own User ID and Password. But I do warn you that you will lose all pictures, music, documents, games, luxury items etc on your computer but you will keep Windows. Please let me know how it goes! Thanks!!!!!

I have start problem in my hp laptop....i go to the service centre . But they say that it can not repair by them.If my laptop cant repair in service centre i will go to the consumer court...

On your way t consumer court, think about this:

1. Who sold you the computer?
2. Did they guarantee you it's functionality? (Warranty?)
3. Is the warranty written on receipt or implied?
4. Is it a used computer or a new one?
5. How long have you owned the computer?
6. Who are you going to sue at the court, the Service center, or the manufacturer or the person who sold it to you?
7. What did the service center tell you IS WRONG WITH THE COMPUTER?

May be none of those people owe you anything, so it might be best to ask for help here to find out what you need to replace in your laptop. If it's too expensive to repair, perhaps getting a working computer might cheaper.

Let us know what you think, okay.
Good luck.
