    Is it booting into windows at all? Can you specify exactly what its doing and what you mean by your password icon, are you referring to your user picture?

Try to enter the system using safe mode by entering f8 when you turn on the laptop, log on as administrator and try to restore your laptop to an earlier time, go to all program accessories, system tools, system restore..

Screen password forgot


OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightenedsecurity on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of thepeople who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

Tried to boot up my Toshiba Satellite but couldn't get beyond the icon login screen. Clicking the left "mouse" button on the laptop does nothing. I can't get to my desktop or Start button...


Try to open windows in safe mode. An easy way to do this is to press the F8 key after you see the Toshiba logo fade and before the Windows logo. After it opens in Safe mode, close Windows and attempt to load it again... this simple trick may solve your problem.

Hi! Last night, my Samsung N150 was still working properly. But when I connect a music player, it stopped working. When I restarted it, the taskbar was already stretched upward and the start button failed...


Try running you're antivirus. Scan you're drive and you're music player because i'm assuming that you're music had a virus that attached itself to you're netbook. If that didn't worked or you're antivirus didn't run at all ( because some viruses and specially malwares can actually do that ) try running it in safe mode (pressing f8 during initial boot) or run you're system recovery in safe mode (this will revert you're system to the date you're netbook didn't have any problems).
To prevent this kind of problem in the future i would suggest turning off you're autorun. Try running this procedure http://antivirus.about.com/od/securitytips/ht/autorun.htm
If you're having a hard time understanding it the easiest way to do it closing the autorun pop out once you insert you're music player. Then just double click you're computer then right click on the drive then select explore. And make sure that anything you insert in you're netbook in the future to scan it first with you're antivirus before doing anything.
Hope this helps. Good Day. ( :

How to lock my pictures


Once you have jailbroken your iPhone. You'll got a Cydia icon on your SpringBoard.
  1. Launch the Cydia.
  2. Go to Search Tab and search for Lock Down and tap it.
  3. Tap Install button at Top-Right and then Confirm button at Top-Right to begin installation.
  4. After completion, go back to Springboard where you'll find a brand new icon i.e. LockDown.

lock-iphone-applications-lockdown-04-165x240.jpglock-iphone-applications-lockdown-05-165x240.jpg
How to use LockDown
  • When you will run the Lockdown application for the first time, you will be asked to setup a Safety Code and a Password. This password will be used to unlock any locked application and to open Lockdown itself. Safety code is useful in case you forget your LockDown password.
  • Once you have setup the Password and safety code, you will see all your iPhone applications listed on next screen.
  • Select any application you want to lock, a Lock button will appear. By tapping that button your selected application will be locked and a little lock icon will appear next to that locked application.
  • Now if you close LockDown App and try to open you locked application (Mail app in this example), you will be prompted to enter the password to open it. Use your Lockdown password to open that App.
(Once you open the app, use it and when you close the app it will be automatically locked again. So no need to re-lock it in LockDown.)

Lets check other options in Lock Down.
  • Tap LockDown to launch it. This time you'll be asked to input the password to open LockDown. Do it.
  • Tapping any locked application in LockDown will prompt you if you want to Unlock it. Pressing the Unlock button will perform the unlock that App.
  • Locked Applications button at the top right quickly shows all the locked application only rather scrolling through all applications to locate locked ones.
  • Under Settings tab at Bottom, following options are available:Locking Options
    • Lock All Applications
    • Unlock All Applications
    • Lock This Application (ON/OFF)
    Password Management
    • Change Saftey Word
    • Change Password
    • Forgot Password
    Other Settings
    • Lockdown Dylib (If you turn it OFF, even if you open a locked application it will not prompt for password. So, it's helpful when you are using your iPhone by yourself. See the details in screenshot. )
    • Lock Icon Moving (When turned ON it do NOT let anyone to move any icon to preserve your arrangement of icons.)
    • Lock App Deletion (When turned ON it do NOT let anyone to delete any application without your permission.)
    • Enable Launch Button (When turned ON, Lockdown will show a launch button when you open a locked application and input password.)

I am using this great application since the day it's supported with iPhone OS 3.0. It's working like a charm and will keep it installed because of its usefulness and surely recommend it.

Doesn´t work anymore


Hi. Forgive me for asking, but did you try unplugging everything, including the firewire, and plugging it in again?

If you try this and it doesn't work, try shutting your laptop down gracefully, then unplug all the Firebox connectors including the electricity. Wait about 10 seconds, then reboot your laptop. Don't open your recording software yet.

Connect the electricity and the firewire as described in the Firebox manual, and then open your recording software. If this doesn't work, something might be wrong with the Firebox.

The problem you have happens once in a while with mine--it seems to be connected with overheating or something. Anyone else have this problem?

Good luck!
