How do i reset the tablets password


Hold down the F12 button and keep it down then press the ON button while holding F12. You should get a screen that will allow you to go into your BIOS to change your password. If you can't get that screen with F12, restart and use F8, holding it down till you get a usable screen. Either way, you have to get to your BIOS to make ANY changes to your system for start up.

Was given a samsung ipad. old owner has password on it. how do I get into this tablet?


Samsung does not make iPads. Apple makes iPads. Is your device a Samsung tablet?

If it is, you can reset the device to factory settings - as if you had just purchased it new and pulled it out of the box. First: power off the tablet by holding the power button down until the screen turns off. This will take a few seconds.

Once it is powered off, press the Volume Up and Power buttons at the same time and hold them. Once you see the Samsung image come on the screen release the power button, but keep holding the Volume Up button. This will boot you into Recovery Mode.

Once the Recovery Mode menu shows on the screen you can release the Volume Up button. Now use the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons to highlight your choice from the menu. When you have highlighted the Factory Reset option, press the power button to choose that option and follow the on-screen instructions. The reset won't take long - a minute or two. Leave the tablet alone until it says that the reset is complete. Once it is complete use the Volume Up and Down buttons to choose the Reboot or Restart option. That will reboot your tablet. Don't hold any power or volume buttons while it boots. This will take a little longer than a normal boot up. Once it comes up, the tablet will no longer have any password on it and it will be as if it were brand new.

When turning it on it goes to toshiba page then goes to blank page


Toshiba page is the BIOS first boot page and should boot from either the DVD ROM or the CD ROM then the hard drive. I would go into the BIOS and set it to boot from the hard drive first it is seeking the ROM drive and stopping. If it does not boot to Windows from the hard drive then you have lost the initial boot file.
Or they are corrupted and you will need to restore the computer back to factory settings. You should have the software that came with your lap top it is not really a problem if you follow these instructions. If you have never done a reboot it is strongly advisable to get someone who has done this before to do it for you. I hope that you saved your important documents and files pictures etc to an external source first.
There is another option to watch the screen when it boots see if you can use F10 or F8 or F1 or F2 to get into safe mode during the boot process. It should tell you which key you can use to get to setup from there you can change the boot device process under boot options to hard drive first boot or it may tell you boot order key information. Whatever it is get there and change it to hard drive first boot. I would highly recommend a repair shop or a friend who knows what they are doing if you do not to handle this problem. John

Forgot password, does not have cd rom drive, need to restore to factory settings. How???


Hi there,

How to obtain Vista Recovery Media and/or use the Vista Recovery Partition on your computer to put it back to Factory Settings.


There is no legal free Vista download available.

Contact your Computer Manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of Vista Recovery disk/s.


They normally do that for a small $ cost.


Also, ask them if you have a Recovery Partition on your Computer/Laptop to restore it to Factory settings.

See if a Manual came with the computer, or go to the Manufacturer's website, email or phone them for info on how to do a Recovery.


Normally, you would press F10 or F11 at Startup to commence the Recovery Process..


Another way I have seen on some models is to tap F8, and go to a list of Startup options, and start a Factory Standards Recovery from in there, by selecting the Repair computer option.


Also ask them if it is possible to make Recovery Disk/s from the Recovery Partition in case of Hard Drive failure or System Crash.

They will tell you how to do that.


Each Computer Manufacturer has their own way of making Recovery Disk/s.

Or borrow a proper Microsoft Vista DVD(not Dell, HP, etc).
A proper Vista DVD contains all Vista versions.
The Product Key determines which Vista version gets installed.

There are 2 Vista disks: one for 32bit Operating System, and one for 64bit Operating System.


If a clean install is required with a proper Vista DVD (not HP, Dell Recovery Disks):


Go into your Bios/Setup, or Boot Menu, at startup, and change the Boot Order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the Boot Order, then reboot with the disk in the Drive.


At startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, to go into Bios/Setup, or F12 for the Boot Menu

Hi First you need to make the USB CD-rom Drive as the first boot device by going to BIOS setup by tapping F2 when the system turns ON , after changing the boot order insert the first disc and restart the computer it should run from the disc.

I am trying to Downgrade an ASUS R1F from Vista Pro to XP Pro. How do I get the tablet to boot from the CD


Hi, if you have computer knowledge, the easiest thing to do is to take the laptop sata hard drive out and connect it to your computer with your sata cables and power and boot your computer up and the laptop drive will be a slave drive then. Now you can back it up if you want and then format it.

Now turn your computer off and put the hard drive back in your laptop. Because there in no Operating system the laptop will ask for a boot device. Now you will be able to boot from your xp cd.

I don't know why but I have found most laptops and computers with vista don't like to boot from a cd and over ride the boot options and go directly into vista which makes it hard for people who want to down grade to XP.

Why someone would want Vista beats me.

You can also load up into bios and change your boot options in there. If not already set as first boot device to be you cdrom/dvd you can change it to be. But like I said most of the time with Vista it doesn't matter! Vista will still boot first. But it is worth trying.

Bios setup password


Hi!! Usually DELL Latitude or Inspiron passwords are storedi n eeprom memories that has to be read or writen to remove / bypass the BIOS password!!! Password generate a hash code that will appear after 3 wrong password attempts and it has a 5 digit decimal format "xxxxx" You can get the hash code by pressing F2 or F10 when you turn on the laptop to enter Bios and then when password prompt appears hit F12 to get the hash code.


You can generate a unlock code or master password with the service tag "xxxxxxx" 7 digit, this code appears at the password promtp screen or at the bottom of the laptop with a white sticker.


I got Latitude D620 Bios password Unlocked at http://www.laptoprebirth.com They can calculate a master password with the hash code. Hope it helps
