Remove bios battery and wait for an hour or so. reinstall bios battery and start the computer. Your cmos settings will have been reset to default so you will want to correct the date time inside the bios set up but other than that you should be good to go. For that model of laptop the bios battery is a small round battery covered in a yellow rubber sleeve just bellow the space bar. You can disconnect it by following the two wires to a plug on the mother board. Gently pull on the plug until it is disconnected.

It might seem that your computer is been locked or logoff from the current user. You just try to hit enter (i.e. return key.) This might solve your problem.

Wait at least a half hour before trying again. That is a common lock out period, though not used in home situations. Ask if someone changed it. The options are not good.


Lost Windows password:

  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html

Please my email husin_abdelmenem @yahoo.com as open email appears your account hase been locked i tried to solve the problem to push the password do not work but i do so appears this messageSorry, this...


Actually the problem is with Yahoo, but let me explain why this happened and how to get it back. There's no possible alternatives for you to access your account currently. You have to wait at least 24 hours, this happens when someone or the user attempts to login with wrong password or wrong username several times. Will be able to access after 24 hours, even writing to yahoo support will not helpful since their response takes at least 48 hours which is longer than the time you are gonna wait.

If you want this to be faster, your only option is to wait for 24 hours without any attempt otherwise, it'll reset to 24 hours even if you attempt to login after 20 hours and you'll need to wait another 24 hours and so on, this is not controlled by man, but it's controlled by software.

If in case someone is playing with your account, there'd be problem, suppose if someone tries to login while you are waiting for the 24 hours to get passed, same thing will happen again. Yahoo will not be able to recognize since these things are monitored on the server.

You can try writing to the Yahoo about your problem using this contact form.. Sign-in and Registration help form and all fields without "(optional)" are compulsory.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My monitor shuts down after one second.


Dell monitors automatically go into power-save mode after a preset amount of time when the computer is inactive. The Dell monitor will go completely black, instead of showing a screensaver. This doesn't mean that your Dell computermag-glass_10x10.gif has shut down. Instead, this allows your monitor to essentially turn off until it's needed again. You can change how long it is before the Dell monitor goes into power-save mode by changing your display settings.
  1. Step 1 Press any key on your keyboard or move your mouse. Either will turn off power-save mode. Alternately, you can press the power button on your Dell computer tower or laptop.
  2. Step 2 Press any key a second time if the monitor goes from power-save to stand-by mode. Stand-by mode allows the screensaver to appear.
  3. Step 3 Enter your user name and password into the login prompt if your computer requires a login. Press "Enter" to begin using your Dell computer.
  4. Step 4 Change the display settings on your Dell monitor to prevent your monitor from going into power-save mode prematurely. Right-click anywhere on your desktop and choose "Properties." Click the "Screensaver" tab and press "Power." Beside "Turn off Monitor," choose a time amount from the drop-down list and press "Apply."

You don't have to get it to factory setting as this will wipe all partition data. The fact is you are able to rely on this password recovery tool to reset your forgotten Windows Administrator login password easily. After that re-start your computer and you'll access your PC as normal.
