Dear Thumper:

If you set the password for windows please try the steps
below if it is bios password you need to contact your
computer manufacturer
Reboot your machine.
Press F8 before the Windows boot screen appears.
You will be be prompted with a boot options menu.
Select the Start Windows in Safe Mode option.
Click through several self-explanatory screens until your
reach the familiar 'Welcome' screen.
Note that this welcome screen is limited to 256 colors and
640x480 resolution because the primary graphics will have
been set to the Windows Safe Mode software VGA adapter. You
will not be able to change this mode even in Display options,
while Windows is running in Safe Mode.
Find the icon for the Administrator user. If the default
settings of your system haven't been changed, there should be
no password for this account.
The Safe Mode Welcome screen might display some of the other
users on your system.
Login as the admin.
Press Yes at the prompt asking if you would like to continue
using Safe Mode.
Continue on to the User Settings control panel. Here you can
change any of the other passwords for user on the machine.
Make any changes you want.
Reboot your computer. As long as you don't press any keys
(i.e. F8) during the boot-up the computer will startup
normally.
Login as the user for which you set the password.

Please feel free to get back to me If you need any further
assistance.
Regards,
Mohammed.

My F22 monitor had been appear OSD locked and i don't know how to solve it. Some buddy please help me!!!


important notes
1. what is displayed on the monitor comes from the system unit
2. possible features that could be displayed on the monitor are screen savers or splash screens
3. attempting to log on a computer with a screen saver passcode could lock the system by displaying the word locked requiring unlocking

procedure of unlocking a passcode
1.Once the system locks, would require to reset the password.
2. another function could be displayed on next to the lock icon prompting unlock or reset
3. in the absence of a display of unlocking the password, continue to enter the wrong password and hiting the logon button in a space provided next to the unlock icon prompt
4. severall attempts would prompt for a reset functionality.
5. at which instance would display a password hint of what has been locked.
6. the password hint provided must be guessed correctly to allow a reset functionality.
7. once hint provided allows for reset would prompt the user to create a new password
8. create a password with a hint as a key to reseting any future locked screens.
9. the screen could be operated without a password for an alternative, only made possible during after unlocking the locked screen. instead of creating a new password and hint, choose to disable screen savers altogether.

Please i need to unlock my T-Mobile G1 mobile phone. How can you help me with remote unlock if i provide IMEI number.


Exactly how are you locked out? If you're stuck on the lock-out screen with a lockout pattern that you've forgotten? If that's the case, the G1 manual indicates the following:
"When you fail to draw the correct unlock pattern on the screen after five attempts, you will be prompted to wait for 30 seconds before you can try again. If you forgot your screen unlock pattern, touch Forgot pattern. You will be prompted to sign in using your Google Account name and password, and create a new screen unlock pattern before the Home screen displays."
