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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Can any body help, I'm locked out of my surface tablet. I accidently turn of the power when resetting the surface and now asks me to sign in when there is no account to sign in with. I came across this error code 0xc0000001. I've tried opening the initial bios menu but it won't open (with backspace, delete button and settings key on the touch cover keyboard).

So I purchased a new CPU a couple months ago and didn t bother to mess with the Bios after installing it Anyway the CPU I purchased was an AMD Phenom II X BE which as I understand is supposed to have all four cores unlocked from start with no need to do anything yourself Anyway some time had passed and about a month ago I was in my Bios messing around with some settings and noticed that under CPU Settings it showed something like this Core - Unlocked Core - Unlocked Core - Unlocked Core - Locked I started up my computer without making changes to check what my computer said and sure enough in task manager it only showed three cores I m almost positive that I d remembered seeing four cores in the task manage on multiple occasions before but of course couldn t be sure So I m not sure if it was always like this from when I installed the CPU or if something changed it for the first month or two I had it installed Anyway went back into Bios and changed it to Unlocked and now all four cores show as unlocked and my computer seems to be running fine but now I am unable to see the temperature readouts for each of my cores--which I understand is a side effect from unlocking cores though I shouldn t be having that problem considering the BE is supposed to come with all four cores unlocked AFAIK I m not too concerned about the temperature thing really but I m just wondering if this would have any effect on my computer or if it could mean that the CPU is faulty or something along those lines I appreciate mean CPU 965 locked core, had BE AMD a faulty? this Phenom X4 is could my II any help thanks nbsp

A:AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE had a locked core, could this mean my CPU is faulty?

I think the the X4 BE is supposed to have 6 cores, with 2 of them locked out. It almost sounds like you have an X3, with 1 of 4 cores locked out. My 970 BE showed 6 cores, with 2 locked out, when I first got it. But I think I may have over-cooked it, or something, when I enabled all 6 cores, and overclocked it, because now it only shows 4 cores. None are locked, though. It runs fine at 4GHz, with 1.5V to it, and 17V to the cooling fan.

No fix is possible except by replacing the hardware of the drive... your data is gone unless you can afford a professional recovery. If you have access to a clean room, you can remove parts from a known good drive, and replace the ones on that drive... but they must be identical. This job is not for the weak of heart.
What would be the value of a password, if we could get a fix here at TechSpot?
There are hardware services that do an excellent job, but the good ones start at $400 and rapidly go up from there.
Luckily, hard drives are now cheap... and someday the lost data will be unimportant.

Hi everyone,

I was trying to delete my HP Omnibook XE3 BIOS password by changing it to blank (using<ENTER>), and I was locked. I tried the old password, <ENTER> and all the keys around <ENTER> key, but no success.

I am not expert with jumper and BIOS battery manipulation. The laptop is old and it does not worth spending money to fix it.

Would any one kindly help me with this problem? I found in this forum that some guys can help with a password that can unlock it. I got the hash code and it is 13053.

Once windows had fully finished booting, no second drive visible, did "find new hardware", and selected exclamation marked hdd, and installed drivers from win update. The hard drive still does not appear in the My Computer drive tree.

A:keyboard is locked out - unlock the key

Checksum error is generally an indication that the CMOS battery is flat. It's the thumbnail sized watch-type battery on the motherboard. As far as your keyboard is concerned, what your problem is likely to be is a key is stuck on your keyboard and it's simply the fact that startup has got further that it's telling you this. Please try another keyboard before worrying about more expensive devices. I know it seems simple and mundane, but it's always a good idea to start troubleshooting from the bottom up.

Good luck.

the only way i could think of would be to use the drive as a slave in another system with it's own operating system. this may allow you to simply view and access all of your data as a second drive.

if you can't simply access it through windows, then you may need to use a recovery program to access it.

Booting into safe mode may well solve your problem.

Then you can uninstall your video card drivers, reboot, and then reinstall your video card drivers. Then just reset your resolution to whatever your monitor can use.

If any one can help either with the password or to jump the motherboard and show me how to do so with a diagram of any sort. I would appreciate it. Thank you

Thanks Per, you finish your first answer with "that's it" I presume I then choose between two alternatives? I'm a bit nervous of cocking it up, & why do you think it lets me back on-line so easily? another Microsoft glitch?....plenty of those!
As to your second answer, re time on-line, that's fine, but what about staying on TOO long? my 20/hour help said it might tie-up the Internet too much, does this matter, or is it a matter of protocol/principle?

why is my fps locked at 60 in sof2? i was getting over 100?
I set my maxfps to 200

what did i do??

A:fps locked

It's most likely the limits on your video card. 60 fps on a new hardware intensice game like SoF2 is pretty good.

Unless you have a brand new video card. Then there may be a problem.

Hi,I tried opening Word after I reformatted my laptop and I got this message: This modification is now allowed because this document is locked.

All the menu icons are gray and won't let me do anything, this is for the entire Microsoft Office 2003. When I try to activate, nothing happens. I already uninstalled/installed many times. Does anyone know what to do?


A:This modification is now allowed because this document is locked.

If this happens with all documents, then either you have not activated the
software, or you have a trial version that is expired. What happens if you
click on Help | Activate Product?

If this happens with only one document, then click on Tools | Unprotect

This is the only place I could find that might actually have people that know whats going on. I'm not sure what the deal is, but it is a few problems. I have to re-install XP on my system quite a bit because my sister is an ***** that downloads anything you can click.

Now, after this last time, I finished re-downloading all our past utilities like media players and such, but now certain autorun features won't kick in, and memory scanners like Artmoney and Tsearch only return results from the 00000000 to 01000000 range. Now, THAT'S the part that bothers me. Even if I am using memory scanners for something else and deliberately isolate the 20000000 and up range, it returns no results.

Memory block from malware or something? Or am I just stupid, and doing something wrong?

A:Might get locked, but I need help.

scan (normal, safemode, online..), update (windows, drivers, programs).. the usual first, then see what happens.. tried reinstalling them right? also might want to give your active processes a quick look through (use process explorer or something) and registry cleaner of sorts...

why dont you set up user accounts with limited/restricted for your sis (like i do ) and lock the main admin/power user accounts with some passwords...

although be prepared to bear the nags of "this such and such is not working!!!!" in which you explain again for the x-amount of times not to download and run such etc...

I cannot get into my desktop. When I rebooted my computer last week it said that the domain (my name) was not available. I used the password reset disk and changed my password. I used this password and it still won't let me in. I pressed F8 and went under Adminstrator into safe mode with networking. Unfortunately, I cannot access the internet with this mode. Someone told me my desktop was most likely "compromised" (hijacked) How do I get into my desktop?

I have run Adaware, SPybot, Norton Spyware, firewall, PC Doctor and McAffee. I have run all of them and they all seem to be clean except Spybot caught the Huntbar. What can I do? I have many files that I can't access and I need them.

Thanks for your help.


A:Locked out of computer - possible hijack?

Strange, you should be able to access internet in safe mode with network support. As for your logon problem, in windows safe mode as administrator, try going to control panel, then go to users, click your regular user then click remove password.

Also check the system is set not to log onto some domain. In control panel, click the system icon, then click the computer name tab, click the change button, where it says member of... make sure the workgroup is selected and not domain.

Good luck.

Sometimes, things are so simple to solve, but it only takes one, misdirected and un-educated question to complicate the issue - it ultimately sends us back to re-invent the wheel... or an old computer.

My Issue was never a "network" one. It's just the way that Explorer and Hotmail and Outlook interact together... or don't.

I have enough sense not to lock my keys in my car for over thirty years, but when it comes to computers, I always think that I know what I'm doing. ha.

There was a reason for the error message that kept me from using the Hotmail GUI. I accessed Outlook, one time, and it allowed me to use the "bare-bones" access to my hotmail account. huh? Maybe these two don't "get along", I thought. I uninstalled Outlook to test my hunch. nada.

What do you do when you've spent days trying to figure out a problem and even asked a few "tech sites" what they thought? That's an easy answer... the manual and call the company. ugh.

The friendly, automated voice directed me to clear the cookie over-ride list that is stored in the "Privacy" tab under the "Edit" button in "Managed Sites". I thought this was a way to block or allow access to my e-mail by "spamers". Don't laugh! I bet you thought that at one time too!

I used Hotmail to organize a "safe-list" at one time, until it became too full. Now I just us a couple of freeware products to manage junk mail.

Hi all. I've got a computer in an enterprise environment running XP Pro, off network, offline.

The software manufacturer (Metso) has locked down the computer to log into a user account that has no admin. I can't access any properties, cmd, control panel, etc - nothing but the software designed to run on start up (Metso) and shut down/restart.

I cannot log out at the ctrl,alt,del - the option is there but it just takes me back to the user desktop.

Getting in on safe mode with command prompt is possible but commands there seem locked down as well (ie. I tried to run desktop.cpl - no luck). I thought maybe there is a command I can run that will switch users but then I realized even in safe mode I am still logged in as the non-admin user.

Is there a linux distro that gives me some control over XP user accounts maybe? Ugh.


A:XP Pro locked down to non-admin user

In Safe Mode, log in as Administrator and leave the password blank, unless you know the local administrator password set by the company.Make sure you change the Domain to (This Computer) If it asks for a password that you don't know, there is not much you can do.
If that works, you will be logged in as the Local Administrator and not the Domain Administrator. Here you can Right click My Computer/Properties/Computer Name/Change. Here, if you are part of a Domain, click the Radio button for Workgroup to leave the domain. You will have to log out and log in as the Local Administrator again. Once that is done, you can create a new user with admin rights for yourself and add your own password if you like.
If this all fails, your only recourse is to reinstall Windows from a Windows disc.

We have a 232 page word document that includes many form fields (created with Developer > Legacy Tools > Text & Check Box Form Fields. We also have several pages that include a mail merge for Name, Mailing Address, From & To dates, etc.

The Mail Merge Fields come from an Excel file. Both Word & Excel are Office Standard 2010.

My problem is that in order to modify the Form Fields the document must be restricted for editing, but allowing adjustment to "Form Fields", however, once the file is linked with the Excel file, I am no longer able to restrict editing on the document. I do not have Design Mode turned on, The file is not Read Only, nor is the file saved as "Final".

How am I supposed to lock the document to allow our users to edit the form fields, while still maintaining the documents ability to pick up the merge fields?

Thank you!

A:Form Fields / Mail Merging & Locked Document issues

By design, mailmerge has never worked with formfields. Even if you leave the document unprotected for the merge, you will find all except any checkbox formfields get deleted during the merge.

Since you're using Word 2010, though, you could replace all the formfields with content controls. Those don't require forms protection and they'll survive a mailmerge. If you want to restrict post-merge editing to the use of the content controls, you can apply the 'filling in forms' protection at that stage.

My Dell XPS 15z wouldn't boot this weekend. After a few failed attempts I got the screen to start in safe mode. A screen with options popped up with the first option being to do a System Repair so I decided to try that. It went through a few steps and seemed to be progressing. However, it now appears to be frozen on a screen that says it is attempting to perform system repairs and that the process could take over an hour. This was basically 48 hours ago. If I hit the cancel button a screen pops up telling me the process cannot be stopped. My husband even turned the computer off but when it starts up again it automatically returns to the frozen screen.

You can try this...Open up a blank document. Go to Insert -> the dropdown arrow next to Object(in 2013 its in the Text section) -> Text from File. Then simply select your password-protected document and hit Insert. The only downside to this is that its formatting will most likely be a little messed up

Moderator, I am so sorry I had not read the ruling on password retrieval, please forgive the mistake. I am not trying to be ill-legal we do have the receipt for it ;-) Dedee

My grandson got a Pandigital Super Nova tablet/notebook for Christmas. It was doing fine until he set a password on it and now he has forgotten what the password was! :-( Is there any way to by-pass the password or to unlock it without the password, please? ( the password was a series of dots and you had to remember the sequence in which you touched them) Thanks for any advice, Dedee

My Ipod Touch had a passcode lock on it and my younger brother managed to disabled to where the red disabled screen says "connect to Itunes." I tried doing that but Itunes didn't recongnize the ipod. I no longer have access to the orginal home computer it was synced to, which had all my data stored within it. I have read that I have to restore it. Is there any other soultion to unlocking my ipod other than erasing all my data? Or is there a way to back up the data on my ipod before restoring it?
Please help me if you can! Thank you!

A:Ipod Touch Locked

The whole point of a passcode is to protect the data. If there were a way to "backup" the data without knowing the passcode, that would defeat the purpose.

Hi, a few of my games and flight sims look bad on my monitor and it's a chore having to tweak the monitor and video card settings to improve the picture every time I load them, then adjust the settings again when I exit and go back to general PC use. 
I've got an Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 and I'm wondering if there's an option or something that would allow me to lock a certain set of brightness/contrast/gamma/colour settings to a particular game, so that the settings automatically kick in whenever I load that game without me having to tweak them in?

A:Can different graphic settings be locked to different games?

I don't know of any actual settings that would do what you want, but there is an app from Nvidia themselves that I think will get the job done. Here's a link to a quick story about it

Hi JimmySpace There's a couple of ways to go about this issue, which are listed in the article below: can start with a CHKDSK /R, and then we'll go from there, alright?Check Disk (chkdsk)Follow the instructions below to run a CHKDSK scan on your Windows partition;On Windows Vista & 7, click on the Windows Start Menu, then enter cmd in the search box, right-click on the cmd icon and select Run as AdministratorOn Windows 8, drag your cursor in the bottom-left corner, and right-click on the metro menu preview, then select Command Prompt (Admin);On Windows 8.1, right click on the Windows logo in the bottom-left corner and select Command Prompt (Admin);Enter the command chkdsk /r (there's a space between "chkdsk" and "/r") and press on Enter;A message will be returned, stating that the drive cannot be locked because it's already in use, and you'll be asked if you want to schedule the scan for the next restart. Enter y and press on Enter;Restart your computer, and the chkdsk scan will be launched automatically;WARNING: Depending on your hard drive (specs, free space, fragmentation, etc.) this scan can be relatively long to complete. Give it all the time it needs to finish. Do not interrupt it for any reason there is, or you might be damaging your drive in the process and make your Windows unbootable. It's suggested to let this scan run overnight or when you leave the house for a few hours (when you go to work for example). If you are running this scan on a laptop, don't forget to leave it plugged in;

Are you sure you aren't setup to download automatic updates? Adwcleaner restarts your PC after you go through the dialogue boxes after it finishes. Its possible you just downloaded/installed updates and it was just taking a long time to finish the updates. It's best to leave it be as long as possible. Always try to wait for updating to finish unless you've left it overnight already.
If that doesn't work, you can try to boot into your System Recovery Options and see if you can do a System Restore from before you ran Adw.

Dear all,
I recently installed the windows 8.1 update to windows 8 on my ASUS laptop (UX32-A). On installation it asked for lots of personal details (not usual with a windows update), which I saw no reason to give and of course really stupidly entered a lot of rubbish. Only to find of course that my usual login name had disappeared on restart to be replaced with the rubbish I had entered for a microsoft account that I did not want (why should I need a MS account to log into my laptop??). Anyway, suffice to say, due to my stupidity I cant log into my laptop (cant get passed the login screen) as I know not the password or any of the other details I entered. I really hope there is a solution without having to reset and lose my files....
Any help would be much appreciated!

A:locked out of computer - windows 8.1 update

Discussion here:
I get the impression that by setting up Windows 8.1 with a Microsoft account your user files become encrypted.
If they are, that's an insurmountable problem and without the password they are lost.
*It's possible to recover your Microsoft account if you set up a valid email for password recovery (when you set up your Microsoft account)
Nevertheless, I'd be inclined to boot to a Linux live CD such as Ubuntu to check if the files are readable.

I bought a new computer (Windows8) a while ago - basically I just set up my account using my email address and created a password.  I put off using it, as it seemed so foreign to my XP.
I tried to sign on today, but could not remember my password.  I deleted my email account a few months ago because someone compromised our credit information and email.  I was going to input the old email account just to see if it would bring up my account, but I was worried they would send a new password to that address - which I'm not sure if anyone is still trying to use, even though I deleted it.
Without an email address, I can't access any type of online help.  Or even find a way to contact someone either by phone or email?  Any suggestions would be so much appreciated.

A:Locked out of my computer

Reactivate your old account, get your pc online and it should sync to your account and let you in with your newly created password. 
If you need to reset it after you get your account back up and running go to:
Just be sure to use the exact same old email account name you had before. 
once your done, change your login to a local one only if your not going to use a Microsoft account, , ,

I'm not able to access my "System Volume Information" & "Documents and Settings" folders, and sub folders.
I get a message..."Access Denied".
Both show a small padlock next to the main folder in Windows Explorer.
I've tried to gain access with "Properties/ Sharing" & "Advanced Sharing" but it always says "can't be unlocked".
There was a process in Windows XP that included using a file.."cacls.exe" and editing the registry, but that doesn't work with Win-7.
I do have "Show hidden files" enabled.

A:Unlocking a locked folder

That is normal. Documents and Settings is now Users. The Documents and Settings folder is there for backward compatibility with XP. It is a Junction Point. You can still access though. See this page.  Is there some reason  you need to access System Volume Information?  That folder is different than XP as Windows 7 uses Shadow Copies.
If you want to access it then follow these steps.

Setup: [key]
Enter BIOS by pressing [key]
Press [key] to enter BIOS setup
Press [key] to access BIOS

Quickly press the key or keys instructed by the previous message to get into the Bios.(You press the key several times,repeatedly)
