1 Answer

Laptop screen why can't I use my laptop outside?? The screen is very dim, hard to see what I'm typing (am NOT using it to access Internet, only create text). Both battery and plug-in are similar, screen is like a mirror, reflecting everything even in shade!!!! Only INSIDE, within 4 walls, is the screen bright enough. I'm NOT making any keyboard adjustments.

Laptops are made to be portable, but they don't seem to be made to use outdoors. I have two laptops and can't use either outside unless it's dark. The problem is that the back light for the screen isn't strong enough, and the screens, mat or glossy, are made to be used inside. Outside the glossy reflects everything, and the mat actually attracts more light to it, making it impossible to see anything on the screen. There are a few companies that make laptops with outdoor screens, but they're very expensive machines, ie... Panasonic Toughbook.

Laptop will not accept old gmil password or new one even after several attempts


            HI BERNARD!
            I MIGHT HAVE A FEW IDEAS THAT HAVE HELPED ME WITH PASSWORDS AND GMAIL ON MY LAPTOP THAT YOUR WELCOME TO TRY IF YOU'D LIKE.
            • I HAVE RECENTLY INSTALLED THE FREE FIREFOX INTERNET BROWSER ON THREE MY FAMILY LAPTOPS AND MY BUSINESS LAPTOP. FIREFOX IS USER FRIENDLY. ONCE I ADJUSTED THE BROWSER SETTINGS TO MY LIKING I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO KEEP TRACK OF OUR PASSWORDS. IF I NEED IT THE INFO I HAVE IT AVAILABLE IN MY FIREFOX BROWSER FOR EACH LAPTOP. STORED SAFELY AND PRIVATELY IS: SAVED LOGINS INCLUDING PASSWORDS AND THE SITE USED ON, USERNAME ,THE DATE AND TIME FIRST USED ALSO THE DATE & TIME LAST USED, DATE CHANGE/UPDATE PASSWORDS. IF I HAVE ANY TROUBLE ON ANY WEBSITE LIKE GOOGLE MAIL I CAN REFER TO MY SAVED LOG INS TO REGAIN ACCESS, RESTORE, AND EVEN VERIFY MY GMAIL ACCOUNTS FOR EACH DEVICE WITH FIRE FOX BROWSER . IF YOU'RE INTEREST ...THIS IS WHAT I DID :
            1. IN THE SEARCH BAR I TYPED - (FREE DOWNLOAD FIREFOX INTERNET BROWSER NEWEST VERSION 2016)-
            2. I PICKED a W.O.T APPROVED WEBSITE LINK " (Mozilla Firefox - Free download and software reviews - CNET ... ) OR (download.cnet.com/mozilla-firefox/ ) they both take ya to the same place safely.
            3. ON THE download.com WEBSITE I CLICKED ON THE GREEN BUTTON "SECURE DOWNLOAD DOWNLOAD NOW" -THERE ARE PROMPTS GIVEN FOR THE REST OF THE STEPS TO INSTALLATION OF FIREFOX BROWSER.
            4. ONCE FIREFOX IS INSTALLED I ADJUSTED MY BROWSER SETTINGS BY CLICKING ON THE lll (horizontal) 3 LINES IN THE TOP CORNER OF THE SCREEN. (menu)
            5. I FOUND THE "OPTIONS" W/ THE COG WHEEL OR WATCH GEAR LOOKING ICON . THEN CLICKED ON IT.
            6. IN OPTIONS THERE IS A LIST OF CATEGORIES TO CHOOSE FROM. I CHOSE THE 'SECURITY' SETTINGS.
            7. IN SECURITY SETTINGS UNDER 'LOG INS' I CHECK MARKED THE BOX NEXT TO 'REMEMBER LOG INS FOR SITES'.
            • NOW I AM ABLE TO REFER TO THIS SAME AREA TO ACCESS MY LOG IN INFO FOR EACH SITE INCLUDING MY GMAIL ACCOUNTS. TO ACCESS MY LOG IN INFO. I DID THIS:
              1. OPEN INTERNET /GO ONLINE VIA FIREFOX BROWSER- CLICK the III icon (menu)-CLICK ON 'OPTIONS'-CHOOSE 'SECURITY' SETTINGS-UNDER 'LOG INS'-(AFTER I ALREADY SET IT TO SAVE LOG INS)-I PROCEED TO LOG-IN TO WEBSITES NORMALLY.
              2. THEN I'D REPEAT WHEN NECESSARY THE PROCESS IN 1. TO GET TO THE 'SECURITY' SETTINGS-UNDER 'LOG INS' - I FIND THE 'SAVED LOG INS' AND CLICK ON IT.
              3. IN 'SAVED LOG INS'- I AM ABLE TO VIEW ALL THE 'LOG INS' ON THAT LAPTOP. BY SCROLLING THROUGH THE SITES, OR USERNAMES, OR DATES,
                • WHEN I WANT TO VIEW A FULL LOG IN FOR A SITE ;FOR INSTANCE : (https://accountsgoogle.com) I JUST FIND THE 'SHOW PASSWORDS' BUTTON AND CLICK ON IT.
                • THIS ENABLES ME TO SEE ALL MY LOG IN ACTIVITY FOR MY GMAIL ACCOUNTS INCLUDING PASSWORD ACTIVITY FOR MY GMAIL ACCOUNTS.
                • *** PLEASE REMEMBER*** WHEN YOU'RE DONE- BEFORE CLOSING PAGE ***TO CLICK ON*** 'HIDE PASSWORDS'!!
            • IF YOU ALREADY USE FIREFOX AS YOUR INTERNET BROWSER AND YOU'VE ALREADY DONE THESE THINGS BEFORE ON ANOTHER DEVICE AND YOU WOULD LIKE TO TRY ACCESSING YOUR FIREFOX LOG INS ON YOUR LAPTOP THEN YOU MIGHT CONSIDER
            • GOING BACK TO THE OTHER DEVICE THAT YOU ARE ABLE TO ACCESS YOUR GMAIL ACCOUNT WITH.
            1. GO ONLINE/OPEN YOUR FIREFOX INTERNET BROWSER
            2. ON YOUR HOME PAGE OR ANY TAB/PAGE -MAYBE TRY- CLICKING ON THE III (menu) BUTTON.
            3. THEN FIND THE 'SIGN IN TO SYNC' BUTTON AND CLICK ON IT. -THIS WILL TAKE YOU TO FIREFOX ACCOUNT SYNC SETTINGS.
            4. THEN YOU WILL HAVE A CHOICE BETWEEN 'CREATING A FIREFOX ACCOUNT' OR 'SIGN IN TO YOUR FIREFOX ACCOUNT'..THIS IS WHERE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO CREATE A FIREFOX ACCOUNT. WITH A FIREFOX ACCOUNT YOU CAN ACCESS FIREFOX AND ALL OF YOUR SETTINGS,TABS,HISTORY,BOOKMARKS,FAVORITES, LOG INS, EVERYTHING YOU HAVE IN FIREFOX ON ONE DEVICE YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SIGN IN TO YOUR FIREFOX ACCOUNT ON ANY OTHER SUPPORTED DEVICE AND SYNC FIREFOX TO YOUR LAPTOP I BELIEVE AS WELL.
            5. USING EITHER THE DEVICE THAT YOU USED TO CREATE YOUR GMAIL ACCOUNT(S) OR THE DEVICE THAT YOU'VE SUCCESSFULLY ACCESSED YOUR GMAIL WITH AT SOME POINT ... YOU CAN TRY CHOOSING/CLICKING ON -'CREATE A FIREFOX ACCOUNT'.
            6. AFTER CREATING YOUR FIREFOX ACCOUNT ON THE OTHER WORKING DEVICE... YOU CAN FINALLY GO TO YOUR LAPTOP AND TRY CHOOSING/CLICKING ON- 'SIGN IN TO SYNC' FOR FIREFOX.
            7. IF YOU'VE DONE THIS MUCH THEN YOU SHOULD HAVE EVERY BIT OF ACCESS TO YOUR GMAIL ON YOUR LAPTOP THAT YOU HAD ON THE OTHER DEVICE. AS WELL AS MOST ANY OTHER DEVICE YOU MIGHT CHOOSE TO TRY SYNCING YOUR FIREFOX TO. ONCE SYNCED WITH YOUR LAPTOP I SUGGEST THAT YOU TRY GOING TO THE 'OPTIONS' PAGE IN YOUR FIREFOX BROWSER AGAIN, BUT THIS TIME USING YOUR LAPTOP DEVICE.
            8. THEN CLICK ON 'SECURITY' SETTINGS AGAIN; IF YOU WOULD PLEASE?
            9. THEN UNDER 'LOG INS' FIND AND CLICK ON 'SAVED LOG INS' PLEASE.
            10. HOPEFULLY THE LOG IN INFORMATION YOU FIND THERE WIL HELP YOU GAIN ACCESS TO YOUR GMAIL USING YOUR LAPTOP. IF NOT... ALSO TRY LOGGING IN TO YOUR GMAIL ACCOUNTS LIKE YOU NORMALLY WOULD , ONLY NOW TRY IT USING YOUR LAPTOP. BECAUSE IF YOUR DEVICES HAVE FIREFOX SYNCED THE THE INFO SHOULD BE THERE ON YOUR LAPTOP ALSO. IF YOU KEEP HAVING TROUBLE SIGNING IN ON ANY DEVICE THAT IT IT IS A DIFFERENT ISSUE PROBABLY. FOR INSTANCE IT MAY BE YOUR GOOGLE ACCOUNT RECOVERY INFO COULD BE OF USE TO YOU.
            11. WHEN YOU CREATED YOUR GOOGLE ACCOUNT YOU WERE PROMPTED TO SET UP YOUR RECOVERY GMAIL ADDRESS AND RECOVERY PHONE # JUST IN CASE SOMETHING HAPPENS THAT PREVENTS YOU FROM LOGGING IN TO YOUR GOOGLE ACCOUNT(GMAIL).
            12. WITH OR WITH OUT FIREFOX YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO USE YOUR RECOVERY PHONE# AND RECOVERY EMAIL ADDRESS TO REGAIN ACCESS TO THE PROBLEM GMAIL ACCOUNT.
            13. ALSO YOU MIGHT TRY 'FORGOT PASSWORD" IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY DONE SO..
            • (Please remember that in order to access gmail accounts, or recover lost info for logins,or passwords used to successfully login to gmail accounts it is important that the Firefox account be created on the device that has previously accessed the gmail accounts successfully.) (i.e... If I am able to use my mobile phone to successfully access my gmail accounts, or if I created my gmail accounts on my mobile phone "device" then my mobile phone "device" would be a good device to create my Firefox internet browser account. Then later on if i want to access my gmail accounts using my laptop "device" I should be able to do so when I 'sign in to sync' for Firefox using my laptop device.)

Your computer's BIOS screen can be incredibly useful when you need to make certain hardware or system configurations.
How to access the BIOS on your laptop varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and model to model.
Even though Acer laptops are created by the same manufacturer, not all models access BIOS in the same manner.
While accessing the BIOS setup screen in and of itself is not difficult all you need to do is press a key the difficulty is in figuring out which key to hit.
Restart or power on the laptop.
Hit the "Pause/Break" key the moment the Acer boot screen (not the OS start-up screen) appears.
If the OS start-up screen appears before you can hit Pause/Break, you will need to restart the laptop.
Press "F2" or "Del" to access the BIOS set-up screen.
Depending on the age of your Acer laptop, you may need to instead press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Esc" simultaneously to access BIOS.
Using the arrow keys navigate failsafe or optimized defaults press F10 to safe to cmos and exit to restart.

Remove and repair partitions on dell laptop


Boot up with the Windows installation CD start and follow the instructions to install Windows.
Next Delete the existing Windows partitions.
Next Create a new single partition.
Next format this new partition - Format the partition in NTFS not a quick format. This will prepare the Windows for a clean install.
Next create a Username and company name (normally Home is all you need).
Further into the installation, you will be required to put in the Installation code. During the final stages of installation you need to create an User or Users that will use this computer. When you finished installing Windows you need to install the laptop's device drivers. You need to use a computer with Internet access to download these drivers from the laptop manufacturer's WEB site and install these drivers on your laptop.

How can I unlock my toshiba laptop


At some point, you'll encounter a password issue on your Toshiba laptop computer for several possible reasons. For instance, you may have decided to go back to the old laptop, and it's been a while since you last logged into it. Forgetting a password is also common if you tend to create different codes for various uses: email, network administrator user information and bank account details, for instance. Should you need to unlock a Toshiba laptop computer that runs on Windows XP, here is what you can do.

1.Use a Windows installation CD to reset your password for your Toshiba laptop computer. This is the same one that you got when you purchased the computer. Boot the laptop using the CD in the same way that you would go through a re-installation for your operating system. Simply insert the CD into the CD-ROM drive and wait for the computer to read it. From there, you will get a prompt that says "press any key to boot from CD," so you just need to follow as instructed.

2.Repair Windows. Once the CD starts up, you will get to a screen that will ask you whether you want to "Install Windows" or "Repair Windows." Press "R" to repair. The computer will then reboot itself after copying files from the CD into the Toshiba laptop's hard drive.

3.Get into the control panel. After the computer boots up, you will encounter a screen that will say "Installing devices." To open the command prompt, press the keys "Shift + F10." On the command prompt, type in "nusrmgr.cpl."

4.Change your password. Getting into the control panel will allow you to change your password using the administrator's control panel utilities. Just go through the process of designating a new password to unlock your Toshiba laptop and then exit the command prompt.

5.Restart the laptop and try logging back in using the new password.

6.Log on without the Windows XP installer. If you don't have a Windows bootable CD, use another computer with internet access so you can create an emergency recovery disk (ERD) that will allow you to unlock a Toshiba laptop. Browse through the internet and search for ERD software.

7.Burn the ERD program into the blank CD and use it to reboot the Toshiba laptop that you want to unlock. The computer will automatically detect the program, so it will take you to a series of prompts where you can change your password.

I can't set the bsnl access point in lg gs 190?


Have you send sms to BSNL for setting up your phone?

First sms: you have to type "GPRSPRE" in the sms and send it to 53733.

Second SMS: Again you have to type mobile company name and model no. and send it to 58355
for example "SAMSUNG B3133" as text in the sms and send it to 58355.

Then you will receive the APN settings. Then you ma or may not be able to use internet in you mobile and in laptop through it.

If you can use internet in the mobile (stand alone) then attach it to laptop/desktop. Samsung device driver will be installed automatically. and you will see your mobile is detected as a modem in the phone & modem section in the control panel.

Then create a normal dialup connection in your network section. Then dial it. you will be able to connec to internet.

Forgot my password in cmos harddisk


The hard disk password is setup using the BIOS configuration, this password is stored on the hard disk and there are no backdoor passwords you can use except the password you created and if you know this password then you can remove it permanently using the BIOS configuration. Moving this hard drive into another laptop will not work either, it won't allow access to this hard disk.
Your only option is to purchase a new hard drive to replace the one with the password.
If you also created a BIOS password, you need this password to get into the BIOS configuration.

All these passwords are created by users to prevent unauthorized access into the laptop and hard disk.

User password lockout


Hard disk password is set from the BIOS. It is usually set in conjunction with the Power On Password. This password is stored on the EEPROM chip and is very difficult to crack - no backdoor passwords. It is used to prevent unauthorized access to the laptop and the data on the hard disk. Removing the hard disk and inserting it into another computer will not allow access to data without the HDD password.

Acer aspire 3000 dropped on floor. Random startup events


theres a good chance that the hard drive platletes and parking head have been damaged, although this is not a huge problem to replace, as long as your screen is working ok, then it is worth replacing. you can access it on the underside of the casing, in the largest compartment, remove all screws and the hard drive will be held in with more screws.
