Do you mean that you are trying to install 10.2.8 ONTO the external drive? If so, you don't have to restart anything., as the operating system is not being accessed, so it doesn't have to optomize. Try starting up from the new install by holding down the OPTION key when restarting your computer, then choose the drive you wish to start up from. Click the drive you want, then hit the forward arrow.

Someone used my computer and did not log out.


Hello Barbara,

You can use following options.

Option 1: Easy One
Press and hold the power button between 5 to 7 seconds
This will turn off the laptop
wait for 20 sec after shutting down
Start laptop again
Laptop is ready to use.

Option 2: Moderate one
Remove the power cord from laptop
take the battery out
put the battery back
start your computer

Option 3: Difficult one
At this point I am not sure which Windows are you using and how do you usually log-in to the system.
I am guessing you got a new laptop, with Windows 7 installed.

The computer might asking you to press Clt + Alt+ Del to unlock the computer.
You can also see there is small button on screen which says "Switch User"
click on "Switch User" button
It will then ask your user name and password
Use your username and password the one you usually use to log-in to the system.
once you are logged in
restart the computer
it might ask you "other users are log-in do you wana continue"
press enter
the computer will restart and now you can use it as normal as before.

Hope these options might help

Thank you

1) Restart the PC with the Vista Boot Disc.

7) we have renamed it successfully.
8) Restart the PC without the disc, reach the screen where you are asked for you password.
9) You will see a white blue icon on bottom left.
10) Click on the icon and CMD will open up, type the following command in CMD.
- net user administrator /active
exit
11) Restart the PC, and you will find you have one more administrator account
12) logon with the new account, goto user accounts and remove the password for your old account.
13) restart the PC with the Disc again, and goto the command prompt as we did in the step 1-3.
14) type the following command,
- cd c:\windows\system32

8

Press "Enter." If you have set up a password protected screensaver on your computer, a dialog box will pop up asking you to enter your password. Enter your password and press "Enter" again to access the laptop. Your screen will be blank prior to press "Enter" because you did not choose a screensaver.

Press the "Fn" and "F5" keys at the same time.You may have hit these buttons previously, causing the built-in laptop screen to go blank because the computer thinks the video is being sent to an external monitor. If you press the "Fn" and "F5" buttons and the display does not appear on the screen, press the buttons again to make sure your laptop screen is set as the default monitor.

Upon boot up the computer is asking for a password (I don't know the password). I can get no further than this point.


If you are using windows xp , you can restart the laptop and press the f8 function key repeatedly until you come to a screen for boot mode selections. use the arrow keys to boot in safe mode. once in safe mode you can go to the controlpanel(user accounts) and delete the user password. then simply restart the laptop to gain acess normally. at this point you will no longer be asked for a password.

Compaq Presario SR5410F says unsuported mode after factory restor


Hi,

You need to restart the computer and start tapping F11 key when you restart the computer, we will be directed to recovery manager. We need to reset it back to factory settings as the factory restore was not completed properly. You will reach a screen which will say " Welcome to recovery manager".

Click on Advance Options and select System Recovery (This will erase all the data and will reinstall the Operating System and the Softwares/Drivers which came with the PC when you bought it).

Click on next after selecting system recovery, select NO when it asks you to backup the data. and click on next. You will reach a screen which will say "Re formating your Hard drive partition". It will take 30-40 mins (minimum) and will prompt a message. Recovery has been successfully completed. Click on Finish and follow the on screen instruction and you will reach the desktop screen in 15mins and PC will work absolutelly fine.

Regards,
Shrey
