Can i still retrieve the puk code for a phone i only use to download games for my son because i bought a new phone and disconected it?


No, PUK codes are issued by the carrier to unlock the SIM card to enable the phone to be used. If you buy the phone outright or it gets to the end of the contract, the phone becomes a free agent. Up to that time the phone is repaying its cost to the cellphone supplier.

I think you can only change it once in any one month.
you should be able to change it a month from the date he set it originally.

I want to return to my original user name and cannot...have a new computer and it has been set up with a new user name...I want my original one.


YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE AN ACCOUNT WITH YOUR INTERNET PROVIDER AND PASSWORD,

YOU WILL NEED TO SET UP A SUB ACCOUNT, WHICH IS A SECONDARY ACCOUNT ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR MAIN INTERNET PROVIDER. EACH SUB-ACCOUNT HAS ITS OWN UNIQUE USER NAME AND PASSWORD.

GO TO TOOLS, UNDER ACCOUNTS, SET UP YOUR NEW EMAIL ACCOUNT, USER NAME AND PASSWORD

ARE YOU WANTING TO USE LIKE A YAHOO ACCOUNT? IF SO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE TRANSFERED YOUR OLD ACCOUNT INFORMATION & CONTACTS FROM YOUR LAST EMAIL PROVIDER INTO YOUR NEW ACCOUNT...AFTER YOU SET UP YOUR NEW ACCOUNT INFORMATION...GO TO TRUESWITCH.COM TO TRANSFER ACCOUNT INFO, ETC,.

HOPE THIS HELPS!

I would like to restrict my sons internet access on his laptop


You can set these setting on the laptop it self
look at help files per brand of laptop for operating system /Network /policy setting You need to be an admin on the laptop or desktop OR make yourself the admin under control panel user properties
its possible to resrict the use of network to specific times or lengths

control panel/administrative tool/ local security policies IP security

get in there and look around you can set parameters of use and such.

I have bought a second hand aspire 9300 and want to remove the previous owners name and put my sons on.it keeps asking for a password . p.s. i bought it genuinely from a house clearance where the owner had...


Hello pikeydad. I you don't have the owner's password I suggest you download something called Hiren's Boot here:http://www.hirensbootcd.net/download/Hirens.BootCD.10.4.zip
burn it on a CD and then boot from it and under Recovery Menu use the "Active Password Changer".
Once you remove the administrator's password (the owner's) logg in to the computer go to start-control panel- user accounts. You have to add you son's account and then log in under your's account. Then go back to start - control panel - user accounts and then click on the owner's account and click delete. You can delete the account only and keep the owner's files or delete the account and files completely.
I hope this helps. Please do not forget to rate and provide positive feedback for our fast free support today. Thank you :D

Hello, I need a Master Password for a Dell 1525


If you have forgotten your BIOS or Hard Drive Password for this model, there is a master code that you can obtain from Dell Support. Simply call, Email, or use Online Chat from http://support.dell.com and give them your Service Tag, and they can help you out from there. If it is a Windows profile password you have forgotten, try accessing the Administrator account from Safe Mode (Press F8 at Startup), and remove the password for the user account from Control Panel, User Accounts.

Removing the CMOS battery will not reset the bios password. The bios password on this system (like most modern laptops) is stored on a security chip. You can search for a generic password but Dell only used generic passwords on its older laptops, newer laptops get a unique password in which a program uses the Service Tag and a serial # to generate. Also this laptop has no password jumper.

The best way to remove it would be to contact Dell Tech Support, verify ownership, and they will provide you with a password. If you just purchased the system used, you will need to fill out a transfer of ownership (http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/change_order/tag_transfer?~ck=ln&c=us&l=en&lnki=1&s=gen), Even if the hardware contract has expired they will still provide the password. The only reason they will not provide the password is if the system has been reported as stolen.

Laptop says 73 blocked


On the 73 blocked icon - click on it and it will allow popups from that site.

Check Internet Explorer - Tools - Internet Options - Security settings to see if set too high.

Check Control Panel - User accounts and family safety - Setup parental controls - select the user you are logged in as and see if you can change the settings (only if you have a limited account).
