Power off the system, then power it back on and see if you can get to the desktop. If you can, then go to the screen saver settings and uncheck the "On resume, password protect" check box.

If you cannot boot into windows, then power off again, the power on and tap F8 to get the Windows Startup menu, select SAFE MODE and see if you get a login prompt, if you do select the username ADMIN with a blank password and see if you can get to Windows. If you do, go to control panel, user Accounts and remove the password from the user account.

If none of that works, then here is a last ditch alternative.

Howto ask computer question


Before you post "me computer not work!", do bit of the homework, establish that your power cable, monitor cable, keyboard, mouse are connected, in case of laptop, check if battery is charged.

If asking the question, be succint and you need to give following information depending on the problem:

1. if computer is brandname - give name, model and year if possible
2. in unbranded computer, if you know - motherboard manufacturer and model including version, processor, ram, hard drive model
3. operating system including updates
4. problem description

for example:

1. laptop toshiba, a3, 2005 model, operating win xp sp3
2. stop loading window as windows beginnig screen

That is correct description of the problem and machine and I or somebody else with knowledge of this particluar problem can provide you with solution or advice. In that particular case I can now direct you to try to load safe mode and if your computer still stop, I can help you how to restore it to previous working state.

If you give me description - "me computer do not work" - or even better: "do not work!", and what do not work?!? telepathy is overrated! psychics are good only on TV! you did not provided any information but want solid answer...

My disk drive is not loading on my Toshiba laptop


i am guessing you have windows xp installed
in your control panel go to admin tools computer management.Open disk management right click rescan all drives it should but your drive back. the computer think you hard disk is a removable drive.
if this did not fix then you have a regestery problem which is very hard to repair because messing around it there can cause windows to stop totally if the wrong files are changed.

I need to know what the F keys do and to identify the ports on the Toshiba satellite P305 laptop. Bought this in Sept and there was no users manual or anything with it. Can you advise?


would you be interested in downlading a manual. this would probably be the easiest way to solve this but im not really sure what you are asking about the F keys but you use certain Fkeys in conjunction with the Fn (function) key on the bottom of the keyboard. Not sure but if you are asking about the ports on the outside of the computer this link should help.
