WHEN YOU TURN ON YOUR COMPUTER PRESS ESC TO GO TO SYSTEM SETUP BIOS. IN BIOS LOOK FOR SECURITY IN SECURITY THERE SHOULD BE THE FINGERPRINT ENABLE DISABLE USING THE ARROWS MOVE TO IT PRESS ENTER SWITCH TO ENABLE USING ARROW KEYS PRESS ENTER. GO TO SAVE AND EXIT. THIS SHOULD BE A GOOD LESSON. IF YOU USE A GOOD SECURITY ON YOUR COMPUTER TO KEEP OTHER PEOPLE OUT, THEN USE IT ALWAYS.

Free software download lost


If you haven't done anything with the card since then, you may be able to recover at least some of the pictures. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and select a program for your computer and operating system. Put the card back into the card reader, cross your fingers, and run the program.

Next time, don't scan and fix. Personally, I always slide the lock on the card to the write-protect position before putting it into my card reader. Not only does it prevent the "scan" dialog from popping up, it keeps the computer from putting the recycle bin and other garbage onto the card.

The BIOS (Basic Input Output System) is designed to check the integrity of the computer hardware and launch the operating system.

That option can be disable without an changes to the operating system.

Turn your computer on. Press "Esc," "Del," "F2" or "F8" to access the BIOS. Use the arrow keys to go to the "Security" tab. Press "Enter." Highlight "HDD Lock," Boot Password" or "Hard Drive password" using the arrow keys. Press "+" until "Disable" appears. Go to the "Exit" tab, highlight "Save and Exit" and press "Enter." Press "Y" when prompted to reboot your computer without the hard drive password.

How do i turn on the scrolling on my acer laptop


To fix an unresponsive touchpad on your laptop, reactivate it by using the Function key on the keyboard and the Fn key.

This process is different for each computer manufacturer.
If unsure which Function key enables and disables the touchpad, try each one at a time and then
attempt to use the touchpad after each one.

A...Locate the "Fn" key of the laptop keyboard.
The "Fn" key has different colored text or the key is a different color.
B...Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.
The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.
C...Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key at the same time to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.
Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works. Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again

When I turn on my acer aspire 6530G laptop after it displays all the icons on the screen the message "Locking your computer" immediately follows then it would go back to the screen that asks you to log-in...


One tip: Hit Ctrl+Alt+Del (if one hit not work try two hits). Enter your user name and password. (no need to enter the password if you don't have one. Just hit enter). If you wasn't using the built in Administrator account (and if its not password protected type in Administrator and hit enter). Scan the PC for Viruses. And check whether there is a problem with the security log if logging enabled. (Start -> Run -> Type in Eventvwr.msc and hit Enter key and go to "Applications" and "System" and check for errors)
