Accer apire one d255e hardisk security lock


The BIOS (Basic Input Output System) is designed to check the integrity of the computer hardware and launch the operating system. The BIOS also has basic security features that prevent unauthorized access to the computer by locking the hard drive with a password. The password is required in order to 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.

Is there an easy way to secure


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you want to set a password of the network to make it secure you need to access the router page.

To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access your router you need to use a computer that is connected to it. Open a Browser then type 192.168.0.1 or http://routerlogin.net. The Default username is admin and the password is password. Password is case sensitive.

Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security select either Wep, Wpa or WPA2 under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key (Wep/Wpa Key) or Passphrase. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure. Network Key is case sensitive.



Thanks for using Fixya

I have a new laptop computer and am wondering how I log on to internet as it is asking for my access/security code?


I assume you are connecting thru wireless or wifi. If its asking for the security code then you have to know the security password for the SSID on that wifi router. Many Wifi routers have security passwords before you can access the internet. If you are connecting to your wireless router then just disbale the security password but will be disadvantageous because other people can connect to your router. Just ask the person for the password who initially setup your wireless router.

I need to hange the security password in order for me to use my laptop but my niece forgot the security key password and i need to change it


The password should be stored in your niece's laptop, or any other computer which has connected to that router.

If that computer has Windows 7, there is a built-in function to display the password. Go to:
Start > Control Panel > Network & sharing > Manage wireless
That will being up a list of routers. Find the correct one, right-click and select "Properties".

12_31_2011_9_45_20_pm.gif

That will bring up an info box for that router. Select the "Security" tab, The security key (password) will be hidden behind asterisks. Place a check in the box for "Show characters". That will display the password

If the computer which has connected to the router has an older operating system (Vista or Windows XP), then you may not have that built-in password display feature. But you may still be able retrieve the password by installing some specialized software.

Here are two suggested free software programs to display wireless passwords:

How do i password my wireless router


You need to log into the wireless router either by a computer that successfully connects wirelessly or by physically connecting with an ethernet cable. Once connected, log into the router by open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), and typing the router's address (usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) into the Address (or URL) line. The default usernameand password is usually "admin" & "admin" or "admin" & "password". Once successfully logged in, look for a tab or link that says "Wireless" or "Security". You'll be able to change whether security is enabled or disabled, and the password associated with it. Your security options are WEP or WPA (or WPA-PSK). WPA-PSK is the most secure, but WEP is also an acceptable choice. Select the security option of your choice and either enter text into the passphrase generator or choose your own password and type it into one of the security key text fields. If you use a password that is not a plain english combination of letters and numbers, be sure to write it down so that you can enter it as needed on other wireless devices that need to access your router (ie-pda phones, game consoles, laptops, desktops, etc). Be sure to save changes so that the security settings and password is saved.
Let me know how you make out.

When i try to connect to a secured wireless connection my laptop asks for a device ownership password, that is either printed or labeled on the device. i cannot find where this password is?


The password is not a preprinted password, it is a security password on your router. You need to log into the router and check your wireless security to see what you have used. If wireless security password is blank (use wap personal security), enter a password and then use the same for your computer when asked.

Please leave feedback if this solves your problem, otherwise send more information about your problem.
