Question about Compaq Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Compaq Presarion 1425. I am trying to remove the administrator block so that my sister who is in college can download things from her school. A message about administration comes up when she is trying to read something, install something or open something up. I don't recall placing an administrator block. I just unpack the computer hook the necessary gadgets up (monitor, keyboard,etc) and go. But I really need this block off. Please Help Me.

If running Vista: Try the following
Open up Control Panel, and type in user account into the search box. You'll see the link for "Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off". Click it. Uncheck the box, and reboot your computer. You should be done with administrator prompts! Now, Microsoft highly recommends that you do not do this. A little red X shield icon plants itself in your taskbar, telling you about the security risk. In Control Panel, go to the Security Center. On the left hand side, click the "Change the way Security Center alerts me" and choose "Don't notify me and don't display the icon (not recommended)"

Just by a wild chance the "block" isn't coming from your sisters colleges web site?

I can log on but cant download any thing without password


Most likely it's asking for an administrator password. Visit this tip for a step-by-step instructional and video for how to reset it.

Once you have it reset, login with the administrator account (if you're on XP; you may have to display it, the option is under "Users" in the control panel) and change your user account to an administrator to prevent this from happening in the future. This can be done under Users in the control panel, change type of account from "limited" to "Administrator".

Modem connection/comcast cable


Hi,

Depending on what modem was issued to you by Comcast, it could be connected to your computer by either a USN cable or a LAN cable. If you availed of the "free self-install kit", then you would need to buy a LAN/Ethernet cable, as to my understanding Comcast does not issue this with the modem/router. Additional information may be sourced from here.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

My little sister put a pass code on the log in screen. She does not have this computer anymore and i can"t change eneything on the computer. the reinstall disc i have will not work becacuse her pro...


One thing you should try first is to get ahold of your sister and get the pass word from her. Then you can go in to her account and go to controll pannel then to user profiles, then change a profile, select your profile and set it to administrator. This will give you the permissions to change things on the computer. If you are unable to get ahold of her, you can also go the route of pressing F8 at start up, and select safe mode as your start up choice. Once you get to the log in screen select Administrator, hopefully she has not changed the settings for this account. If you are able to log into the puter this way then simply go into controll pannel and do the same with your account. Change it to administrator. Then restart the computer and log into your account as normal.
