There may be a Restore section on the hard drive. As I recall, you hit one of the function keys, like f12 or f11, while it's posting.

If you have an hp, compaq, or emachines, you can contact the company about a free replacement restore disk. Other OEM makers may help you out, too, if you can find a contact number.

If it's Dell, and you are the original buyer, same deal, if it's still under warranty. If not under warranty, they will charge you. If you are not the registered owner - good luck with that.

You can call MS with your hard luck story (or one more creative), and maybe, if you get a live person on the line, they will feel sorry for you and send you a complimentary disk (no kidding).

All these "free disks" cost about $25 for "shipping."

Remove password from hardrive in bios


Before your computer loads your operating system, it starts by running the BIOS program, which is extremely important because of its various options.

You can even set a password on your hard drive so that nobody can use your laptop computer without your password.

Once you put in the password into your hard drive, you can only remove it by accessing the BIOS system and deleting the password completely from the memory of your computer.

Save all of your important files on an external hard drive or similar storage device.
This is a precaution to avoid losing all of your files when making changes to the BIOS.

Then, restart your computer.
Wait for your computer's operating system to ask you to access the BIOS menu.

This may be at different times, depending on the manufacturer of your computer.
It can ask you when the manufacturer's logo comes up, or on a separate screen indicating for you to click the "F2" button on your keyboard to start.

Access the BIOS menu by clicking the key or combination of keys that you are informed to click. This information can be found in your computer's manual, but it changes between different companies.

Commonly used keys for this process are "F10", "F2" and "Delete."
Go to the BIOS option that contains your hard disk drive password.

The option that will lead you to this password varies immensely due to different laptop models, but it may appear as something such as "Advanced" or "Security."


Look for the option for changing the password, which should say "User Password," and then click "Enter." Put in the existing password and then click "Enter."

Do not enter any password into the blank fields asking you to enter a new password, and this will remove the password.

Exit the menu by clicking "Save and Exit." Click "Enter."

How can i get the free password for me to view the movie Girlfriend Experience


That is a scam, there is no movie in there, just some viruses. Delete that file immediately, cut the internet connection and run a thorough scan with all your security programs.

Something is wrong with the file system on the partition in which you try to install XP. Start the install again and this time when asked where do you want XP to be installed delete the old partition and create a new one.

How can i delete unwanted files in my pc? how to clean my hard disk


I suggest you try Duplicate Filter from http://www.duplicatefilter.com, which is a powerful tool to assist anyone in cleaning up the contents of their personal hard drive or corporate network. You'd be surprised just how many unwanted or duplicate files you could find forgotten in an obscure documents folder.
Here are the ways to find and delete duplicate files:
1. Click "Add Folder" button in "Find Duplicate" section to select the folders you wish.
2. Select Compare Mode: Check by Name+Size, by CRC+Name, by CRC only, by Name only, by Size only.
3. Click "Scan" button and start to find duplicate files.

4. After searching the duplicates, you can choose to delete them, move or copy them to a different folder, or rename them in their current location. 83007d66-f221-4e67-84c1-ce94b6648e4e.jpg Duplicate Filter Free Software to Find and Remove Duplicate Files

Boot system error, insert boot disk..


If you are using windows,System files(boot.ini, config.sys, autoexec.bat, msdos.sys, io.sys) might have lost or corrupted accidentally. You can fix it easily by connecting your hard disk to any other system having windows. boot from the host computer's operating system. open my computer, select folder options from tools menu. select second tab (view) scroll down to uncheck "hide protected operating system files (recommended)" and click ok. now go to C drive. Now you can see the system files mentioned above. copy all the required files to your hard disks partition's root and shutdown. now take out your hard disk and connect to your computer and re-start.
another method is to make a bootable pendrive (visit: http://www.esnips.com/doc/0882f54e-3445-41b6-830d-e43fd7d02dc2/Active+Password+Changer+-+Boot+Disk+Creator
to download application to make bootable pendrive.) copy all the system files from another computer. boot your system using this pendrive and select option 3 to exit from the menu to prompt. copy all the files to your OS partition and now reboot. this will solve your problem (you may need to change bios setting to boot from usb). for further details you can contact av_balajee@yahoo.com

What can i do to unlock my hp laptop,is asking me for a password and i have no idea..


Is the password being asked in the bios level or the operating system user level??? is its the bios, then u will need to take off the bios battery for ten seconds and put it back in, if its the operating system, one and best way, is to have the operating system freshly installed, or go to safemode, and enter as an administrator, and change password of users or better, elminate the passwords.

Wat to do if i cant remember my password to my computer


Remove the backup battery on the mother board and the plug it back in. Thats if its the bios password your're talking about. you may have to jump an eeprom if that does not work. If its the op sys password you can just remove the hard drive and put it in an external case and copy all you files you need and then just reinstall your op sys.
