Go into your firewall and allow TCPI connections.
And most anything related to your internet connection allow.
If you are running Vista the fire wall has most everything shut down as default settings so you need to change it to allow your IP address access.
Also in Vista you have to allow or not allow sharing in the control panel under networking.

My toshiba after you turn it on it goes black and in corner it asks for password i dont have password what can i do

We lost the password to a computer that we purchased at Best Buy. We took it to the Geek Squad at the store and they were able to unlock the computer and reset the password. I think it costs $30. Good luck.

Started my laptop this morning and it is asking for Bios password, this was suppose to be blank nothing was ever put in.

You need password reset software to correct the problem , you will never get past that point if you don't have a password. I know from experience that Geek Squad has this software and can fix your problem

My PC will not recognise my password log on after vista update ?

This is going around and I'm trying get the word out to remove your user password before any update because of this fiasco. If the Geek squad is near you they have a password removal tool called Samurai that will remove all passwords on your laptop. I'm not sure I would trust a third party program off the web with information like that, but the squad may have minmal charge for a procedure like that, it only takes a few minutes to run the disc and click a few prompts and it's done.

Microsoft Word software

it is probably a trial software and yes, you would need the code from the software to keep the software licensed, they probably didnt give you the product code because of it being a trial

Not happy with our new Toshiba

If the Geek Squad came out to transfer your data for you they should guarantee their work. Call them back and have them show you how to access it.
