My samsung R530sks for windows password and I dont know it as I have bought the laptop of third party and restored it and its now locked, can any one help

Its depends on the version of window you have. If you have window xp you can simply login with administrator account by pressing (ctrl+alt+del) at the time of login screen. If your window is above window xp, you have to ask the password or else have to do a recovery by using recovery disc... However if you have any alternate computer in your home so you can simply download a free password reset tool from use it into this computer by using flash drive.

Method 2: Log on as administrator to reset Windows XP password

All Windows XP computers have a special user account named "Administrator" and by default this account is not password protected. If you don't set password for the account or you remember its password, you can log on computer with the administrator account to perform Windows XP password reset.

Wespro n720 hanging at loading os image how to solve this problem

You don't state the OS but usually it is a damaged system file.
On XP you can try this: Boot computer and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you See Windows welcome screen / login screen. It`ll show classic login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press Enter and you should be able to login Windows. Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts". On Win 7 or Vista: Ctrl+Alt+Delete won`t work, you have to use some windows password recovery software. I recommend Windows Password Reset Deluxe

My acer aspire 4315 hangs during shutdown. windows XP OS


This happens when there is a process still trying to work in the back end.

Try to disable most of the applications which get opened by default when windows starts.

Click on start/run/ and type msconfig. Once the window comes up click on start up tab and disable all.

Now try to reboot the system.

Also hope there is no usb device connected at the time of shut down. This would also make xp hang.

BSOD when trying to install Win XP, or boot Win XP from hard drive BSOD screen is as follows: A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time you&#39;ve seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps: The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. Please contact your system vendor or visit for an updated BIOS. If you are unable to obtain an updated BIOS or the latest BIOS supplied by your vendor is not ACPI compliant, you can turn off ACPI mode during text mode setup. To do this, simply press the F7 key when you are prompted to install storage drivers. The system will not notify you that the F7 key was pressed - it will silently disable the ACPI and allow you to continue your installation. Technical information: *** STOP: 0x000000A5 (0x00000011, 0x00000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) Every BSOD I received was this exact code. I ran a RAM test with memtest86+, it showed 0 errors. I tried reinstalling BIOS v 1.1 (supplied by Toshiba) and the first time it did let me boot into the XP Home installed on the system, after which it worked fine. While in xp, I checked device manager to see if the system was ACPI, and it was. I&#39;ve also tried BIOS v 1.2, the last one supplied by Toshiba, to no avail. I did try pressing F7 during one of the installation attempts, and it hung at "setup is starting windows", I tried pressing F5 during an attempt, and there was only one option besides "other", the typical i486, which I selected, after which it hung at "setup is starting windows". I&#39;ve flashed BIOS with v 1.2 a few times now, with same BSOD during both xp install attempts and boot attempts. What baffles me is the errors did not show up until I tried to install xp for the first time. Before that the computer booted every time. I&#39;ve never heard of xp effecting BIOS during install. I have been to the microsoft support page for this BSOD. There are two articles on this specific code that I found, one for a "wake from hibernation" error, and the other for an xp installation error, seems as though the latter applies here. URL below. I&#39;m fixing this for a friend. I fix computers all the time. This one is getting up there with DELL&#39;s laptops. The screen is broken, so I&#39;m using an external monitor. He doesn&#39;t want the monitor fixed, so I&#39;m only doing a fresh install + Backup for him. Thank god I already backed up the data. Thank you in advance for your time. (I just got the error again. Gonna try windows 7.)
