If you cannot access the machine after if has been powered up, it is still possible to get past the BIOS password. The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard. If you remove this battery, all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.

On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove. If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password. If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is. If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper. This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.

If all else fails, you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard.

if you recently installed a program/driver you need to go in in safe mode and remove it.Failing that you will need to gradually remove drivers 'till you find the culprit. Hit F8 on boot and choose "safe mode".

If you are using windows XP, (vista should be similar) then click "start", "control panel", "display" then select the "settings" tab. select "advanced". Depending which graphics driver you are using you should see a link or a tab labelled "rotation" or "rotate display". You can set hotkeys to perform the rotation if you want to simplify the process for the future. Hope this helps - please ask again if you need more info :)

Just restore your system from a backup taken before the error code started. If you have no backup then you need to format your hard disk and do a complete reinstall of all your software.

If you know the DVD and the DVD drive is in proper working order, it could mean that the software you are running just may have some problems. Try downloading a copy of VLC (VideoLan Client) this application is free and open source (and no it's not something I created and am just trying to get people to use...it's just something that works great, and completely free) VLC can play almost any video file or DVD that it encounters. If VLC can't play it, I would think it's likely there may be something with your disk or your DVD drive.

If you want to play DVDs from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk. The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software (Passkey for DVD) that allows you to play DVDs from any region and Passkey for Blu-ray that allows you to play Blu-rays from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From: - www.dvdfab.com/products,free.htm

Hello,Do you have a wifi card in the computer? It is a hardware part that you need so that the computer can connect to the wifi. If you have that but can't find it in the operating system. I suggest that you either install or update the driver for it. You can use RadarSync to scan your computer for the available updates of your wifi driver. Make sure that you connect to the internet first using your ethernet so that it will detect the available driver updates somewhere in the databases of the manufacturer. Davidhttp://goo.gl/CxsY9u
