Preferred Solution: How do I unlock my Microsoft Lumia 640 screen lock?

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.)

A: How do I unlock my Microsoft Lumia 640 screen lock?

You will have to reset your phone and loose whatever data is not backed up.
Power off. Hold Volume Down and tap Power. When the exclamation screen (!) appears release Volume Down.
Now tap Volume Up / Volume Down / Power / Volume Up...
The spinning gears will show and your phone will reset.
Unless you remember the password it is all you can do.

I have two Lumia's: 925 and 625.
Since we try to have as less radiation as possible (if possible at all, but I don't want to go into that discussion) around the house we switch our phones to airplane mode as much as possible. Off course also at nights.
Now, I discovered with a special measuring device, which is able to measure all kinds off radiation) that these lumia's frequently send a signal even when it is on airplane mode (with Wifi, NFC, BT off). The strangest thing is even that this is NOT occurring when the phone is normally on, but only when the lock-screen is active. (with or without Glance where applicable)
I notice a peek in send-signal every 5 seconds. I tried playing around with several settings but the devices keep doing this..
Is anybody familiar with this?

Hello. I am having a issue with a laptop that will not unlock. If you lock it and go to unlock it, all you get is the blue screen that you get when you lock your computer. If you do a hard reboot and then login it works. What is the issue? Please help

lock- screen is with clock and doesn't react on anything, button for unlocking, double-click on screen, when i connect it with charging cable to computer, computer doesn't see it, when i call from other number nothing happend on phone, and other phone shows ringing??? I don't know to open it and check the battery, also looks like normal turned on with locked screen. didn't fall, and didn't happen anything to phone, it was in the pocket.

A:My Nokia lumia 925 is just dead, buged lock screen. Could you help me?

Try a Soft Reset. Hold the Volume Down + Power buttons until the phone vibrates and reboots (about 10 seconds). Soft Reset is a great go-to to solve many types of glitch.
If that does not work then you need to try a Hard Reset:
Hold Volume Down > press Power > keep holding Volume Down until you see the exclamation (!) screen, then immediately release the Volume Down
Now tap Volume Up / Volume Down / Power / Volume Down
You should see the spinning gears and your phone will reflash the last OS version held in recovery. You do loose data, but get your phone back. Sign into your Microsoft Account and restore your backup during the set up.

Some apps will not show notices, calls show notices, but Skype, Line, Hotmail or FB do not. I have tried a hard reset, and verified that I have enabled them for the lock screen. All I get is the icon at the top of the phone for the notification center.
I have filed a feedback item for this.

A:I have a Lumia 640 and it won't show lock screen notices, is this a known issue?

Not all apps have this ability currently. The developers have to enable this (afaik)
The FB and Messenger app are an example. Still no lockscreen support from them

Hey guys,

So my wife's Dell laptop running Windows 10 (not sure of if 36 or 64 bit) got this lock screen last night. Don't know what she was doing or if one of the kids clicked on some kind of popup, but the pic attached is the screen she gets when she tries to boot.



She didn't run a scan, because neither of us were previously aware of scan logs, and I can't reinstall her Windows as I don't have (and am not to keen on upgrading to) Windows 10.

I looked the malware/virus up and tried to use something called Hitman Pro to get rid of it, but it didn't work.

(I followed all these steps - Remove Genuine Microsoft Software virus (Uninstall Guide))

Anybody have any advice on how to get rid of this?

Thanks in advance...

Hi Friends,
 
I have a DELL Inspiron 14R (N4110) laptop. Few days back I set BIOS password. Unexpectedly I forgot the password. While going to BIOS, my laptop is asking for password. I tried many times but unable to enter correct password. Can any one please tell me how to proceed further for resetting the password? Now there's unlock key hint number appearing.. please help so i can go to my bios settings..
Thanks in advance...

Hope someone reads our troubles and has a good solution.

My laptop won't automatically rotate when I rotate it. The rotation lock button in the action centre is greyed out so I cannot select it. This is the same in the display settings, I am unable to unlock the rotation lock. I have searched for answers on this and people have advised to select the 'allow auto-rotation' however I cannot find this setting in my control panel. Switching to tablet mode does nothing either. The laptop also does not sense the screen has been rotated around and so the keyboard/mousepad are still active even when the laptop has been moved to a tablet. I am within warranty so will just replace laptop if I can, but want a quick solution for now!

I've just installed a "GateKeeper" (www.gkchain.com) which locks/unlocks the desktop based on my proximity to my desktop PC.

It works beautifully, but is a little odd when my display has gone into power saving mode whilst the desktop is locked... I approach the PC, and the desktop unlocks, and is ready for use, but the display stays blank as it is in power saving mode. I have to move the mouse (or press a key, perhaps) before I can see what I'm doing.

Is there some way to automatically bring the display out of power saving mode whenever there's a transition from locked to unlocked? I suspect this won't be possible, as there's probably no API for the power-saving mechanism. I certainly can't find any settings in power management that would control this behaviour.

A:Tying the display power settings with the lock/unlock functions.

No settings in GateKeeper? You can ask them if no one here knows.

Please help!
Best regards

A:Windows 10 - FN key and touchpad lock/unlock button problem Satellite L675-11J

Fn keys require special Toshiba software which controls this notebook feature.

But the Windows 10 drivers are not published for this Satellite L675 series because its not Win 10 supported.

From my point of few this means that you could use the notebook in connection with Win 10 but without the functioning FN buttons.

I have desktop pc with two keyboards usb and bluetooth. Also TOSHIBA Bluetooth Stack software, but in device manager: keyboard > hid keyboard device both using microsoft drivers. And I dont have any software installed for keyboards. Also bluetooth has separate system tray indications (it is also disabled) so its not that.

Acualy I dont have anywhere in registry KeyIndication. So any ideas how to disable it? Thanks

A:Caps lock, num lock, scroll lock screen messages

Hi,

You'll find that the messages are controlled by a piece of software that came pre-installed on your machine when you bought it. Try looking for a Hotkey managing app to see if the notifications can be disabled.

Good afternoon,

I just did a clean install of 7 to fix errors with my laptop, and it fixed one, but not the other main issues,
My caps lock, and number lock button on the keyboard don't have a light on it and the pop up that is supposed to pop up doesn't show up on screen.
I figured by doing a clean install it would all magically appear again... I was wrong, I have tweaked everything I could think of looking/trying to change setting from the keyboard in control panel, (including messing around with ease of use) and Gateways so called "support" area was of no help, as well as googling the issue has led me down a path of useless tips, I have also looked on this forum for help.

Any help in this area would be GREATLY appreciated!!

Is it possible to make payments using NFC on Lumia phones that support NFC? I just purchased a Lumia 640 and I see that it has NFC but I don't know how to add my debit card details to it. I remember 2-3 years ago hearing that it would be possible but I can't seem to figure out how to do it. I'm in the UK if that makes a difference.

Do you have the wallet app installed? I think you need that for it to work

My microsoft charger is suddenly not charging my phone and my phone is taking too long to charge if its dies at all, with other chargers. It has also started going off spontaneously....anyone knows what the problem could be? Is it my charger/charging system or software problem? And how do I deal with it?

I don't think this is limited by hardware since the lumia camera seems better.It could be a nice option if you want to take pictures of night sky or a lighting storm.

Hello. I have a Microsoft Lumia 640 XL since March and after a very short time the secondary camera seems to bug me. Every time I am trying to switch between the main one and the secondary it keeps showing me "SOMETHING WENT WRONG". I have even factory reset the phone and nothing good happened. Is there anyone that could help me? Please!

My Microsoft lumia 535 phone now charges very slowly. Also, the Microsoft phone charger that came with it has stopped charging it (the charger is still working fine because i have tested it on other phones). Recently i have been left with no choice but charge it with a samsung ipad charger or i use a USB cord to connect to my desktop or laptop, though not all USB cord is working with it. Also now selective with USB cords.
The problem started after my phone battery completely drained out flat. Since then, charging my phone has been an uphill task.
Pls help. It is affecting my communication as my phone is down most of the time now
