How do i reset password for h264 dvr

Hello, There are two things you can try, the default password for the system should be 000000. If that is not the password if you go into the System Menu under the "General" tab there will be an option that says Factory Defaults, this will reset the settings to the default and should remove any password that is in place, but be warned that this will possibly wipe the dvr.

I forgat pasword 1000GB my passport USB

My Passport is one of the external storage product lines produced by Western Digital, or WD. My Passport drives are designed for on-the-go use, unlike the enlarged devices found in the My Book series. Passports have slim cases constructed of heat-sinking materials such as aluminum -- which compensates for the lack of built-in fans. They range in storage capacity from 250 GB up to 1 TB, although out of the box this amount is diminished because of the installation of SmartWare, WD's user-friendly software. You can reset the password on My Passport from within the application if need be.

Click "Start" and select "Computer." Double-click the CD-ROM drive, then double-click the "SmartWare" application; on a PC, the application is listed as "WD SmartWare.exe," and on a Mac it is listed as "WD" Click the "Settings" tab. Click "Set Up Drive." Select "Install" and accept the "End User License Agreement" when prompted. Click "Continue Setup." Open the "Security" tab. Type your current password into the box labeled "Password." Enter a new password and a new password hint. Confirm by checking the "I Understand" box and clicking "Update Security Settings." if this fails

How to reset to factory default with out discs

Asus has become one of the "Top 5" computer manufacturers worldwide.

CNET attributes this growth to the Netbook craze.

The company's name comes from the last four letters of "Pegasus," the winged horse from Greek Mythology.

You can restore your Asus laptop to the original factory settings in about five minutes.

Restart your ASUS laptop and press the "F9" key while the computer is booting up.

This will open the boot screen. Select "Recover Windows to Entire HD" and press "Enter."

Press "Y" three times when asked if you are sure that you want to restore.

The laptop will restore the factory settings.

The computer will then shut down and start up again.

Approve the license agreement, then select your "Language preference."

Enter your name into the box and click "Next."

Enter your password twice on the next screen and select "Next."

Enter the time zone and date information, then select "Next." Select "Finish" on the next screen and the computer will reboot.

hope this helps

My laptop screen doesnt work, I'm using a remote screen which only works when Win XP fires up. I want to know how to negate the password on my HDD so it won't keep asking for it when i boot up on a blank...

Windows is treating the "internal" screen as separate from your "external" screen,
i.e., you've seen computer-geeks with two side-by-side screens, with the Windows Desktop
spanning both screens. With a bit of "tuning", you can nominate the "external" screen as the "primary" screen, and thus see the Windows Desktop (which currently is showing on the "internal" screen). Or, for about $100 plus $60 labour, replace the LCD screen on your laptop with a "pre-owned" LCD screen.

I am currently on a school computer. My SanDisk Cruzer 8gb would not run. I recently added a password on it and it has worked before. The U3 system would not auto-run and I have tried running it manually...

> currently on a school policy.

The school's Computer Systems Administrator may have installed a "Group Policy" setting that tells Windows to *NOT* allow USB-devices (iPod, iPad, flash-drives, external disk-drives) to be allowed to be used. It's a good way of preventing computer-viruses from getting onto the school's computers.

If your SanDisk works correctly on your own computer, then use your own computer.

I need a driver download for a hitachi hard drive model HDP725050GLA360 where can i find one?

Current operating systems, including Windows 7, Vista, XP and 2000, and Mac OS X, already include pre-installed drivers for the hard disk drive itself. No additional drivers are required.

If your system is requesting drivers, you may need current versions of your controller or motherboard drivers. To obtain the most current controller or motherboard driver, go to the respective manufacturer website.
