I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Try to turn it on three time in a row. The BIOS should display a set of numbers while it informs you that the system is locked. Post the numbers and letters if there are any and I will see if I can help you out.

I have used password safe for many years. However, I made a stupid mistake yesterday when I tried to reset the administrator's password. I made a typo twice and put the wrong password. Today, when I input the password I want to use, I couldn't get validated.

Does anybody here know how to reset the password from the master.psafe3 file?

I know it's an open source software, there should have a way to recover the password for this software.

thanks.

Hi guys,

Before I post in the Dell password removal thread, would somebody please be able to answer this question.

I can access my bios but cant change any settings like the boot order settings, the hdd password is not set. The admin bios password has been set. I need to turn this off in order to set the boot order.

I've read about a grey screen but dont seem to have it.

Would the master password be entered in the admin password setting screen?

Or should I have some grey screen?

From memory the service tag does end in 595B.

Thanks in advance guys.

I am the only person that uses my pc. If I remove my master password from firefox should there be any worry about someone getting my passwords. Or is a master password only needed when multiple people use the same physical pc?

A:[SOLVED] Do you need a master password for single pc user?

Even if you are the only user on your PC, it might be advised to use the Master Password feature for the best security. You can find info about using Master Password at the Mozilla Help Site

Generally, you want your passwords to be as secure as possible, so it might not be a good idea to store them in Firefox at all, since it may be possible for others hacking into your computer to easily find them. As an alternative, I recommend KeePass, which has much more advanced security for storing your passwords, and is easy to make entries that will auto-enter your login info to sites. Check it out at their site

I've had great success in unlocking locked HDDs (10+ different types and brands 10-80gb) using Hiren's Boot Disk 7.3 (& later versions) using "HDD Erase 4.0" under "Hard Disk Tools". Just persist in trying to erase it per Master-Password (which I did NOT have!) and press ENTER without typing anything. It asks you "do you want to proceed with erasing..." and all you need to type is "y" + Enter. NO MORE DOORSTOPS! Who says one can not unlock password protected HDDs? Mind you, there is no data left on the HDD once this program has run - sometimes it fails to finish, BUT the HDD IS unlocked! So, everybody worried about data-theft can calm down again! ~>) Carsten

Hi

I have a TE2100 and I have set a password in the BIOS. I now want to turn it off but not sure how.

I have tried entering a blank password, pressing delete & backspace while editing the password, nothing seems to work. My searches find heaps of threads about resetting an unknown password, but I know what it is - I just want to turn it off!

I suspect it is painfully simple, can anyone shed some light on this?

A:TE2100 - How to turn off a known BIOS password?

Hi!

Normally a BIOS password can be deleted if you set a new password for BIOS or let?s say you want to change it.

Therefore go into BIOS and enter the current password on password set option. Then you must enter a new password twice. There press only twice ?Enter? and then you have deleted the password.
Check this!!!

Under Network and Sharing Center / Advanced Sharing Settings / All Networks / Password Protected Sharing, I'm unable to turn off the option for "Turn off password protected sharing".

I'm doing this in my Windows 8.1 administrator account. I can select the option and save the changes, but when I go back to the screen it shows that password protected sharing is still turned on.

Is there a fix for this please?

Been trying to do this for a couple of hours now,but it just
wont turn off.As soon as i turn it off and then check back again
it's turned back on.
I now this is quite a common problem and i've tried quite a few fixes
but nothing will turn it off.
My last attempt was using Winshare manager i got all the folders
showing yes yes and i clicked the registry fix but still no joy.
I'm using a wireless connection and trying to get my media server
the Mede8erx3d1000 to show folders on the pc,but it just goes straight
into asking for user name and password instead of showing the folders on
the pc.
Thanks for any help with this problem.

A:Can't turn off password protected sharing

There might be some program running in the background preventing it from turning off. Please try a Clean Boot to see if that will eliminate that problem. Its also possible the media server is forcing it back on. Check both of their settings.

Clean boot:

We just got a new computer that included Windows 7 software. My simple question is this.
When we walk away from the computer for awhile and return to do something, the screen
locks up and asks for a password which I recorded when we first set up the computer.
I don't want to have to type in a password each time someone wants to use the computer

In fact you can't even belong to a domain on Vista Home Premium.I am a computer technician, and am fairly familiar with Windows Vista, but during my studies this year I was never taught how to change this option in Windows Vista Home Premium because I don't think you are expected to encounter this problem.Anyway, does anyone know how to fix it?

I would suspect that the Power Supply Unit (PSU) is going south. If you have a spare one laying around, install it and see if the problem goes away.
You can buy a new,better PSU from Newegg for about $40.00. I have used a Thermaltake 430 watt in one of my machines for some time now and it works well.
You will have to check the size of your PSU to be sure a new one will fit into the eMachine.
Here's the page with that PSU on it. It's the last one on the list.

Ad-Hoc requires that you restart the session each time.

Connectify pro has an auto start option that does this but it's a paid version, connectify lite is free but I'm not sure if has auto start.

I can t turn my computer on The fans and lights turn on for a second and then turn off a few seconds later they ll turn back on and then on, Fans off/on turn turn lights and blink repeatedly. then turn back off I ve had this computer for months now i built it myself it recently started doing this but i d just turn off the PSU Power Supply Unit and turn it back on and it woould fix it now it doesnt fix it anymore i ve re-slotted the RAM Random Access Memory and pushed it in firmly but that hasn t done anything i ve tried different power outlets and pushed everything into the MOBO Motherboard i havent Fans turn on, lights blink and then turn off/on repeatedly. messed around with CPU Processor because that s just a pain in the a i was wondering if there was anything else i could do before having to take it into a local repair shop lol as for my computer specs CPU Processor Fx- AMD GPU R - x AMD RAM Random Access Memory GB Ballistix sport MOBO Motherboard ASRock Extreme R PSU Power Supply Unit Corsair X w Case Rosewill GALAXY thanks nbsp

A:Fans turn on, lights blink and then turn off/on repeatedly.

First, I would unplug everything that isn't necessary. Everything external except for the keyboard and monitor. Internally, just leave the CPU, RAM and video card installed. See if it turns on. If not, you might try and test the power button. Disconnect the power button from the mobo. If the pin headers allow for it, use the reset button as the power button. If not, you can use a flat head screwdriver to power on the computer (cross the two pins for the power button with the blade of the screwdriver). If you do this, just be very careful. Touch only the power button pins and nothing else! You could easily damage components by touching the screwdriver to the wrong thing.

Some motherboards have a power button right on the board that you can press to power on the computer. I looked at a pic of your board and didn't notice one.

If that doesn't do it, plug the power button back in. You might try and play around with the RAM. I don't know if you have 2 or 4 sticks of RAM, but try and boot the computer with only one stick of RAM at a time. If there's a bad stick, you'll find it through this process of elimination.

If none of the above works, then it might be a bad PSU.

Hello Folks I'm not sure if my issue is with hardware possibly MB or graphics card so please forgive me if I've posted in the wrong section The first problem I was having was random blue screens of death that displayed graphic card driver issues I was able to remedy that by updating my graphic drivers On Monitor, Off PC Later Turn Turn and Running Screen, Black Still and have not had an issue since However ever since then I have been running into another hardware or graphics-related issue that is random and completely stumping me What is happening is I will be on my computer leave and turn my monitor off and randomly when I come back to use my computer again when I turn on the monitor there is no signal and a black screen e g when I turn my monitor on my desktop will pop up and the light on my Turn Off Monitor, Turn On Later and Black Screen, PC Still Running monitor will turn blue when it doesn't turn on there will be a black screen Turn Off Monitor, Turn On Later and Black Screen, PC Still Running and the light on the monitor stays yellow as if it is idle I have tried swapping out the monitor to see if that was the issue and the same problem persists so it does not appear to be my monitor or VGA cables The only way I can temporarily fix this issue is to reboot restart my computer and viola The monitor works again and I can see everything This issue is very random Sometimes I can go weeks without an incident other times this is happening a couple times a week I honestly don't know if it's my motherboard or video card or what My PC isn't overheating I'm not overclocking and all of my drivers are updated I'm not sure what else I can do besides lose more hair at this point Any advice would be greatly appreciated Many thanks

A:Turn Off Monitor, Turn On Later and Black Screen, PC Still Running

try checking your power options settings and set it to high performance then check in advanced power settings and do not allow hard disks to sleep

Running Windows Vista Ultimate.

Display turns off after about fifteen minutes regardless of whether I am actively using the computer or not. The only way to turn the display back on is to close and then open the lid. This disconnets me from AOL, so I have to sign back on again, and if I was emailing, I might lose my current email.

Under Power Options, I have 'Turn off the display' set to Never for both On Battery and Plugged in. Under 'Put the computer to sleep' I have both On battery and Plugged in set to never. Nonetheless, the display still shuts off while I am working.

What do I need to do to prevent the display from turning off at odd intervals?

A:Vista Ultimate x64: turn off display, will not turn back on

sounds like your display drivers are crashing.

Do not rely on windows update drivers - go to graphics chipset manufacturer website and get latest drivers

Wife updated Norton twice and had two Norton Firewalls and Windows Firewalls running together. Paid twice for the 2 updates. Removed Norton Completely and then re-installed Norton 360 Security Version 5, but am still unable to turn off Windows Firewall under Windows XP Pro and also cannot turn on Automatic updates, getting message "we're Sorry, the Security Center could NOT change your Automatic Windows Update setting. To try changing these settings, go to SYSTEM in Control Panel. On the Automatic Updates Tab, select AUTOMATIC (recommended) and then click OK. None of this works, then tried using an app to reset Security Settings and that didn't work either. Any suggestions on what I try next. I would like to reinstall Norton 360 Internet Security Version 5, I know there are those out there that hate Norton and the overhead that comes with it, but over the years I've gotten used to it and I like it very much. Thank you, PhotoRay

A:In XP Pro can't turn off Windows Firewall or Turn on Automatic Updates

How did you remove Norton in the first place?

I want to discontinue use of McAfee (which came with the initial install) of my Windows 10 computer, and turn on Windows Defender.   I don't know where to start.

A:turn off mcafee and turn on defender in windows 10

Open the start menu. Select  "Control Panel". Select "Programs and Features". Find and select the McAfee program in the list then click "uninstall" at the top of the list. When it has finished uninstalling Windows Defender will activate itself.Go back to Control Panel again and select  "Security and Maintenance" . In the security drop down list it should say Windows Defender is turned on.

Welcome to TechSpot

I'd unplug all drives and add-on cards (such as soundcard if there is one), and try booting then.

Hey all I'm new to this forum but I've built a few computers in the past but have never experienced any problems like this.

Case: Powerspec Cooler master case
Processor: Intel i5 750(quad core)
Motherboard: Gigabyte H55M-UD2H
Powersupply:OCZ 500 watt Mod X Stream-Pro

Here are some pictures of my build and a video of what is going on.

Video: youtube.com/watch?v=UbuFZJQnlds

As you can see the PSU, CPU, and Case fans are turning on and the Motherboard LED lights are blinking and then they quickly turn off. I dont think its a problem with the Power Supply because I have already returned one with the same issue thinking it was defective.

Pictures:

wont let me post pictures =/

Any help is appreciated, thanks for your time!
 

A:CPU and PSU fans turn on but then quickly turn off as does everything else

Does your current BIOS version support your CPU?

Your 4 pin power connector looks to be missing.... Top right of the video 8secs in.
