Re: need help with my pc
Do you mean a password, or the program key? A freeware program called Belarc Advisor will give you whatever program keys are left on your computer, as well as identifying all hardware and software. Try that.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

You need a model number, not a serial number. Value depend on condition, age and general desirability of the features a given machine has. You can check Ebay to see what people are asking for them, but bear in mind, the asking price is not always what they get.
Occasionally some Windows Vista user may need to activate his or her
copy of Windows Vista operating system through phone activation, such as
in situation where the computer is offline without Internet access.
Other possible reason to use phone to activate instead of automatic
online activation is failure or facing problem to activate Vista online,
and user have to fallback to alternative.
For most users, activation process normally starts with attempt to
activate Vista online. Online activation is simple and effective way to
activate the copy of installed Vista, and when it fails or cannot
activate successfully, then user can opt to activate by phone. If you
want to skip and bypass online activation and go straight to activate Vista or Windows 7 by phone (i.e. in the case of offline PC with no Internet connection, do these steps:
Click on Start Menu.
Type slui.exe 4 into Start Search, and then press Enter.
Go to step 10.
Normal activation procedures for Windows Vista, including fallback on phone activation:
Click on Start Menu.
Right click on Computer and then click Properties, or open the Control Panel -> System and Maintenance -> System icon.
Scroll down to the Windows activation section and click on the Activate Windows now link.
Click on Activate Windows online now.
Note: If you have not entered a product key during installation, the
wizard will ask for a genuine serial key. If you uncertain of the serial
number key used, or want to change the key used, click on Change product key link.
And, this step must fails in order to go to phone activation.
If the online activation process, user can continue to attempt to activate using automated phone system by clicking on Use the automated phone system to activate option.
Select your location and click on Next button when prompt to find available phone numbers for activation.
Click Continue if prompted with UAC dialog box, except for those who had disabled UAC.
A local phone number or nearest telephone number will be displayed
on screen, together with a set of Installation ID (54 numbers in total -
6 numbers in 9 groups) generated by Windows.
Call the activation phone number.
The call will be answered by automated voice response (AVR) system,
that asked caller to speak, or if voice recognition failed, press the
phone button to enter the Installation ID listed behind
"Step 2?. The numbers needed to enter is a lot (54). If you want
simpler way to do it, just speak and enter anything to let automated
service fails, and then wait for the call to transfer to activation
operator (a real human). Sometimes, if for some reason the Installation
ID entered is not accepted by the AVR, your call may be transferred to
human operator too.
Note: The human operator may ask for the reason that causes
requirement of reactivation or activation of Vista. Just tell the truth,
e.g. hardware upgrade, transferring to new PC (for non-OEM edition
only) and etc.
No matter who you talk to (machine or human CSO), a set of
Confirmation ID numbers which consists of 48 digits (6 numbers in 8
groups) will be given if Microsoft believes that your copy of Windows
Vista is genuine and legitimate. Write down the Confirmation ID.
Back to Windows Vista, type in the Confirmation ID given by the phone system into the wizard boxes after the "Step 3?, and then click on Next button.
The activation should be successfully done with Activation was successful window appears. Click on Close button to quit.
Codes have to be used when new. After a while, the hackers upload codes all over the internet and thousands of people use the same code until the manufacturer voids it. Same with illegal copies of windows. The only thing you can do is call the number on the microsoft website where they may help you but probably not. For a fee, they will give you a new code over the phone and you can activate it.
Restore disks are created to only work with the default hard drive that came with the laptop. Even if you bought an exact replacement it still wouldnt work as the restore discs looks for the unique serial number of the hard drive and therefore prevents people from using the recovery discs on other toshiba systems or non toshiba systems.
Id suggest borrowing another windows installation disc and using the key on the certificate of authencity on the bottom f the laptop to activate.You might have to ring microsoft to activate it but just explain whats happened and it should all go ok.

When transfering dta from another phone by bluetooth it asks for the password usually 1-4 numbers to confirm authencity just enter 0 in your phone and 0 in the other phone when password is aksed for an easy solution . When you receive Mp3 or Video via bluetooth it's received a message and stored in your phone's main memory . Go to Messaging and setting and change default storage location to Memeory Card , don;t forget to copy all your messages when asked . Now you can utlizie the memory card for media received by bluetooth
Sounds as if the board is starting to fail. Try what I've listed bellow. If that doesn't work then try a bios flash. If it's still giving you the same problem after trying all of these, then I'm afraid you'll have to replace the motherboard.
Try removing the jumper from the harddrive, then restart or Take the jumper off restart, shut down, then put it back on again or Remove the CMOS battery from system board and boot once . After booting shutdown your system and insert the battery back, start your system and press F1 next time it won't ask you to press F1. Reset your BIOS after that (time,date,etc.)
I know this is simple and probly not the right thing, but try to enter the numbers again and recheck them one by one to make sure a zero is not an o. I have had that problem before. Just look for the numbers that could be letters...etc.
I had an office xp that I was wondering the same thing...then all of a sudden I tried and O instead of a 0. See what I mean?
