Reload the operating system, if you have any hangups during or after installation, it's a hard drive failure.

    Someone used my computer and did not log out.

    Hello Barbara,

    You can use following options.

    Option 1: Easy One
    Press and hold the power button between 5 to 7 seconds
    This will turn off the laptop
    wait for 20 sec after shutting down
    Start laptop again
    Laptop is ready to use.

    Option 2: Moderate one
    Remove the power cord from laptop
    take the battery out
    put the battery back
    start your computer

    Option 3: Difficult one
    At this point I am not sure which Windows are you using and how do you usually log-in to the system.
    I am guessing you got a new laptop, with Windows 7 installed.

    The computer might asking you to press Clt + Alt+ Del to unlock the computer.
    You can also see there is small button on screen which says "Switch User"
    click on "Switch User" button
    It will then ask your user name and password
    Use your username and password the one you usually use to log-in to the system.
    once you are logged in
    restart the computer
    it might ask you "other users are log-in do you wana continue"
    press enter
    the computer will restart and now you can use it as normal as before.

    Hope these options might help

    Thank you

    I forgot my password

    Forgetting your User password is both annoying and easily fixable.
    Turn laptop on and repeatedly hit F8 till a black screen with white writing appears with multiple options for you to select.
    Highlight "Safe mode with command prompt" after a few minutes another screen will appear with the following.

    C:/ Yourcomputersname/Your user name>
    type "net user" press enter
    type "net user Your user account name * "
    (( Your User Name should appear under neath the "net user" command.
    Type "net user Your user name *
    It will ask you to enter a password, enter any password you like. Note the cursor will not move to show it recognised a key press this is for security purposes so please dont make a mistake.
    It will ask you to re enter the same password
    Re enter password then press enter

    Reboot laptop and sign in with original User Name and new password you typed in above.

    Dell laptop computer how do i unlock ruby laptop not a desktop when sgin on it read ruby lock how do i unlock it.

    The computer goes in to lock mode when it goes into hybernation or to sleep after a period of inactivity. By "ruby laptop" I presume you mean there is a button with the name ruby on it? If so, just click on the button and if it is password protected, it will ask you for the password for that user account. If it is not password protected it will go on into the desktop.

    Unlock HP Laptop

    It depends on the login type.
    Most company laptop are connected to the company's network and the user login is into their network. If it is only a Windows user login then this can be reset with a password recovery program, its not available to the average user.

    The best bet is to reinstall Windows, this will wipe clean the hard disk and give you a laptop with a fresh clean Windows XP installation which will give you less problems.
    You can do it yourself, if not get a computer savy friend to help you.

    Password recovery

    If the password window has come for first time then don't enter any password. Leave the password window blank. In the user name enter Administrator and log on. If this does not help enter administrator or admin in password field. But this should be second option.

    My suggestion is that you downgrade from Window Vista to Window XP as till date Windows Vista has lot of bugs relating to security issues.I myself have done that.

    Heya Laptop

    It sounds like you closed the lid, which put the computer into "Standby mode" (which can be seen by the flashing green lightning bolt light on the front) . Whenever you turn your computer on from standby mode, it locks the computer so that an unauthorized person can't open your computer and run your programs without permission. To log in, you can just type the password you normally type when you log in to the computer. If you don't have a password, try just hitting enter instead of typing a password. (You may need to hit Ctrl + Alt + Delete before you can enter your password, just follow the instructions on your screen)
