Preferred Solution: Enter Current Password

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.)

Password types :

Power On Password (pop). this password can be reset by unplugging the cmos battery for a while, and plugging it back in.

Supervisor/bios Password (svp). this requires reading the eeprom chip (8 leg or 14 leg) with an electronic device by using another pc's serial port or by paperclip method if model type available.

Hard Drive Password (hdp). this is usually tied to svp, but not all the time. it requires special software and a library of known manufacturer's password. but can be cracked either recovering the data or wiping the data.

My laptop keeps asking me for my facetime, icloud and messages password. I've entered the password but it keeps popping up. Even if I enter the wrong password it accepts it and asks me again in about 30 seconds. I have a Macbook Air but I don't know what system it is though. What can I do to stop this?

I have a toshiba satellite C870-11H. It used to ask for the password whenever it went to sleep. I checked and the system is still set to do so.

Some time ago I got fed up with the clowns at Microsoft thinking their latest update was more important than whatever I happened to be doing and destroying the work I was doing so they could load their rubbish. I set the system to ask me before doing an update. Well it doesn't bother to do that and now very rarely it does load an update without authority. Could it be that my system is now way out of date?

Is there a customer focused operating system that I could use instead?

Thanks.
 

A:Laptop stopped asking for password

Every OS is customer focused. Microsoft is for non-Mac machines and getting things done. Linux is more powerful but requires more techy-ness to use.

Maybe try Mac OSX.

But there's nothing wrong with Windows. Sounds like you have a decent amount of problems.
Run WIndows update, make sure it's completed every update.
Run CMD.exe in admin mode, run sfc /scannow

Hello all,

I use an ADSL modem for accessing Internet in my home. I think my wifi password is stolen. I wanna change it but I have a computer only in my office and use the Internet in my home by my iPhone. Is there a way to change that password with my iPhone or should I surely use a computer to do that work, please?
 

A:How to change the Wifi password of an ADSL modem without a computer

Hello abbasi ,
You can use your iPhone to log in the router and change the wireless settings, however this isn't usually recommended. If something goes wrong when configuring the wireless settings and you are not able to connect to the router you'll need a device that can be connected via Ethernet cable to restore the access.
If this router is supplied by your ISP you can ask them if they have remote access to it to change the password.
Hope that helps.

If I pull the battery will that reset it......help me please. Thanx
 

A:Forgot Password On Asrock Motherboard

Removing the motherboard battery and waiting a couple minutes before replacing it should reset it to where you can gain access again. It should help you. If not then reset your jumper to clear the CMOS. You can get the jumper resetting instruction in the motherboard manual.

I have a Windows 7 computer wired into my home network. It has a printer attached to it that I have set to share. I have a windows 7 laptop and an XP laptop. Both 7 machines can see open the shared drives on the XP machine but when I try to access the shared drives of either 7 machine from any of the other machines I am asked to give a User ID and a password. This is a private Home network. I have no passwords set up on any of the machines. I'm trying to set up the printer on the two laptops and I can't access it without the User ID Password window popping up. Does anyone know what the problem is?

This is all normal operation for print/file sharing. If you really want sharing without using passwords (imo a security risk), then you need to google for "anonymous sharing"

Hi Friends ... I have this laptop that has been given to me by my company and the USB ports have been blocked in manner such that I can copy stuff from my USB drive on to the machine but cannot copy in the reverse direction, ie. from the hard drive to the USB. Obviously it is to safeguard against theft of data. However, I do not deal with any confidential data and like to back up things every few days. Please tell me a shortcut to unlock my USB entirely even though I do not have administrator rights on the machine.

I have a generic Flash drive 512GB that is formatted exFat. When writing files to it, the computer crashed and since then, the drive has been in a read only state (there is no write protection switch on the outside of the drive casing).

When running diskpart it says current read only state: yes. But for read only, it says no. I can clear the read only state, and it will even say successful, but the current read only state still says yes.

Disk Management in windows control panel says the drive is healthy, active partition.

I have tried using various formatting tools such as AlcorMP, HP format Tool, and a variety of others and no luck.

Anyone else have any other ideas?

I don't know for sure that it does, but if it uses any remotely decent form of encryption then you're going to need to remember that password... it's kind of the point of encrypting it in the first place. If anyone knows differently please chime in.

I?ve never had to set the BIOS password, but the kids are growing up and I need to lock access to my PC.

My Bios has two Password Options: Supervisor and User.

The Supervisor password was accepted, and before I attempt to change the BIOS settings, the Supervisor password is asked for.

Then I set the user password.

However, when I boot up the PC, I am not asked for any password and windows loads as usual.

What am I missing?

Fairly obviously, it's the Password Check option we're interested in, so select it and change the setting to ALWAYS.

A:Help upgrading my current PC

Most important question: what's your budget?

If you're gaming the GPU will be the best upgrade, but recommendations all depend on your budget.

If you want you can get a Core 2 Duo/Quad to replace your Celeron, but they're legacy products now and you'll have to buy one off eBay. It's probably advisable not to upgrade your CPU/mobo/RAM and save up for a new combo.

Hi,
I've recently finished building a computer and i turn it on and there is no connection to the screen, at first i thought it was my screen but i tried 3 others and still not working. I then thought maybe my GPU was broken so i took it out and tried another still no display eventually i discovered that my RAM voltage was too high for my Motherboard. I have two sticks of PNY DDR3 DIMM 4GB RAM 2.5V and I figured it would be cheaper to buy a motherboard which would run the RAM as i spent 90 on the ram overall. Can anyone tell me a motherboard i can buy to support my 2.5V RAM for about 60 - 70,
My computer specs are as follows:
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 960T 3.0Ghz black edition
GPU: ATI Radeon 5770 HD GDDR5 1GB HIS
RAM: PNY PC3-10660 DDR3 PC Memory - 4GB DIMM RAM 2.5V
PSU: 850W Win Power Plus
MoBo: Gigabyte GA-770T-D3L (Doesn't support the RAM)
HDD: Hitachi Deskstar 7200rpm 32mb cache

Any suggestions to a MoBo that willl support my 2.5V RAM pleaseClick to expand...

RAM voltage don't matter, there's something other than the RAM that isn't working. There might be a problem with the PSU or you simply didn't connect the 6-pins to the video card. Btw, the mobo you have DOES support that kind of memory! Double check every connector, you should get that thing up and running.

Hi there. My first post on the forums.

I'll get right to it; I'm probably getting a new GPU as preperation for Battlefield 3, since my old one (8800GTS 320 mb) is starting to get REALLY old. I thought of getting the hd6780 as it was surprisingly cheap, the only issue was that it will be bottlenecked by my current CPU ([email protected] Ghz), or my current hardware in general for that matter(4GB of DDR2 ram @667 Mhz). So basically I just want to know; will the hd6780 work OK with my current setup? I know it will bottleneck to some degree for sure, I'm just wondering how much.

I'm planning to play Battlefield 3 on my 720p TV, which means a pretty low resolution of 1280x768 so hopefully it will run well even if my CPU could've been better.

Hopefully someone could take some time and answer me.
 

A:Is my current CPU too big of a bottleneck for an HD 6780?

I'm sure someone else that knows more about cards than me will reply, but in the meantime I replaced an 8800GTS 320 with a Radeon HD 5830 on a C2D [email protected] and I'm playing SC2 at 1920x1080 with pretty high settings (I thought they were maxed (without AA) but someone informed me that wouldn't be possible with my hardware). I think at that low of a resolution your processor will be bottlenecked quite a bit, but it may prevent you from getting 200fps when you'll get 130fps instead (I just made those numbers up, but my point is even if the CPU is holding you back it will still be playable).

I would suspect that unless you have a CPU upgrade planned real soon, you may be better off getting a less powerful card. The reason I say that is, by the time you do get around to upgrading your CPU and mobo, your 6870 might not be real great anymore. So you could probably save money and get a lesser card (hopefully someone will have suggestions) for less money and put that money towards beer, or maybe a future cpu/mobo upgrade.

Edit: I confirmed today I am playing with everything on Ultra or High if high is max setting. I've played the campaign and probably 150 bnet games and only once have I seen the message 'your computer is slowing down gameplay' and aside from that one time I've not noticed any video lag.

Hello,
I will be buying for myself a hx750 PSU modular. It is 18 cm long and my case will not support it to round the cables from the back. I do not think that is a problem as the PSU is modular. My question is, should I make the output for the cables round the back of the case bigger by cutting some off or not.

Here is a picture:
Where it says 14 should be 15 cm

Thanks in advance

EDIT: Wouldn't the AX750 be better as it can fit?

Hello,

I know the title is a bit vague, but I would like to know if my current BenQ DVD DD DW1640 ATA Device is a good enough optical drive, or if it needs some upgrading.

Thanks
 

A:Is my current optical drive good enough?

The way i see it bud is if it works...It's good enough. I bought a Lite-On SATA DVD-RW a few month back because my old ATA blew on me. It aint no different in my opinion.

As long as it plays all my discs (DVDs, CDs..ect) it's fine. Obviously if i want to play bluray and it can't, then it aint good enough, simple as that.

Some people probably think that you HAVE to have the latest, fastest drive around; but for me, It's the part of the PC that's just simply black or white (works or doesn't).

I doubt your RAM would work, the lowest speed listed on the Memory support list for that motherboard is DDR3 1066. To be honest its rather slow anyway, you want to be considering DDR3 1600 or higher.

This is apparently a common problem with no single answer. Regardless of whether any USB is plugged in or not, the system will give this error after POST. I can't get it to go to BIOS, pressing Delete at the mobo screen does nothing.
 

A:Asus motherboard "USB Device Over Current Status Detected"

I just did a search for this error and I see what you mean, there are dozens of different solutions. Had you made any changes just before this occured?

I think the best place to start is to begin by disconnecting everything from the mobo apart from one memory stick and the monitor. This includes disconnecting the hard drive/s, CD drive/s, keyboard, mouse speakers, printer, any USB device and unplugging the cable that goes to the front USB connections (if you have any) any cards including graphics (unless you have no onboard graphics to connect to the monitor) and any card readers or floppy drives. Then try to boot and see if you get the post screen or that error again.

Let me know what happens.

Hi,

thanks
 

A:How to set password for my IO Data Landisk?

you're into a bag of worms - - is this a personal LAN attached NAS or a commerical problem?

for background on the subject, see this PDF

The process to secure access to a NAS storage device is:

take ownership of the root folder and replace all children's permissions
create a group name which implies NAS-access
grant desired privileges to that group name
now go back and add your desired user-logins to the new group name
To revoke access, delete joe-user from that group list

In my experience with IBM machine upgrades, you could get a good and cheap case, pop your dell system in there, and that way you could be able to upgrade your GPU and PSU at the same time.

Just two of my cents.

A:Old PC crash, cannot enter BIOS

Maybe the RAM isn't really passing the test. If the BIOS is set for quick boot, doesn't it skip the memory test? If so, try using one RAM stick at a time as see if it changes anything. If you have access to any other compatible RAM to test with, that might help. I don't know if that would affect the inability to enter the BIOS but that's all I can think of to try at the moment.

1) access the router using your browsera) use only a wired connection'

the default user/pwd is: admin/ <leave it blank>
​2)once inside, set a new Admin Password and save it. This will restart the router and disconnect you from it - - just log back in

A:Does a charger with lower watts and current damage a laptop?

your risk is to the charger, not the laptop.old charger output 19V 4.74A 90W
New charger output 18.5V 3.5A 65W​the voltage difference is only 0.5v , the big difference is the
current output.

googling for Hp pavillion dv4 I found the hp dv4 spec to be
Power

* 65 W AC Adapter
* 6-cell Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion)​which is IDENTICAL

I guess you have a match with the new charger and the original was just a bonus

I had a laptop a while back but got rid of it. now I have another one but can't get on line because I can't remember my password for my router. I went to linksys but you had to have a password and user name, which I can't remember so that was No help. Got any idea's?
 

A:Can't remember password on router

If you read the manual, it will explain how to reset your router, and return it to default settings (including the default password). On Linksys it usually involves pressing the reset button, and rebooting the router while holding said button in. But check your manual first. If you don't have your manual, Linksys online will have it for you to read.

You'll unfortunately need to set it all up again, so make sure the first thing you do is change your SSID (wireless broadcast name), and setup security on your wireless.

You need to talk to HP, after changing the registered ownership, and may need a document about the fate of the previous owner. You may have to send it to a certified HP service center with a formal notice of change of ownership included.

There really isn't a valid solution. The D620 is unusually difficult to impossible for password repair, and the idea was chewed for a year. Solutions that supposedly work are perhaps illegal and certainly dangerous. They turned out to be a good source for malware and infestations without being helpful. All the solutions are as expensive as replacing the system board or the computer.

A:Inspiron 1300 Password Issues?

Hi humanpest, we get a regular one post every day or so on this subject
But as stated by Julio (our Administrator here) We cannot provide support any longer on this issue of mobile (laptop) passwords removal (As listed on one of the Mobile threads somewhere)

I feel your pain, but I have already supplied all information I know
And as the spammers (as I call them) that posted in the many threads never wanted to help me with an updated generator, then there is nothing more to say (Note: I asked and asked and asked)

So, NO we cannot help any further, and obviously this Topic will be closed just like the rest
Sorry.
Your only option is to try elsewhere. Please try not to repeat or double up on Topics (as per many members have done) As they all just get closed anyway.

Hy, I have now spend more then 20 hours searching for a solution to reset my bios password. I forgot the password as it my old laptop and I need to login to bios to adjust few things. First thing I did was pulling out the cmos battery, the date and time is reset but bios password survives. I tried unlock 6 based on my system hash code 03377 with no luck. Does anyone have any suggestion what else could I do ?

Thanks
 

A:HP ZE5400 Notebook Bios Password

There is a password that cannot be reset by normal means built into the CMOS as an anti-theft measure. There are options on how to reset this password but it is tricky. The best thing you can do is to contact HP support to get it reset.

I have a Dell Latitude D630. It has an admin password for the bios. Nothing is locked except for the settings. I can't change any of the settings in the bios. It lets me boot to windows just fine though. My question is, since I don't know that admin password for the bios, if I upgrade the bios firmware, will the admin password be deleted? Since I'm flashing the bios, I would think that all the settings will be lost. Is that the case?

Unfortunately, if you don't know the password, you will have to do a complete reset. The settings for the most part should be default so it shouldn't take long to put it back the way it was.

hi, i had bought 9600GT 1GB of MSI.

My general problem is that it said that minimum requirement of +12v of current rating 23A .

But i my power supply has only +12V of current rating 13A.

Now after using the graphic card, when under a small load, my cabinet shouts load and gets heated.
Even for a small application running.

So, can you please tell me if there is any problem here, that has to be changed.
And can you also tell about this current rating.

if i understand what you are asking, it sound like your power supply is insufficient for the 9600gt. it calls for a 400w psu and @ 13A im guessing your power supply is a 250 - 300W? can you post your specs so we can get a better picture of your situation?

Hi I had been searching round for hours looking for a startup password problem for a toshiba equium a200 1v0 and found a thread on this site for a toshiba a205. See link for (How do I reset eeprom on Toshiba A205?) Reading down I found the bit about removing the memory etc. I found on the equium a200 you don't have to remove anything other than the black tape (and put at least the lower piece of memory back in).
I used a old meccano screwdriver as instructed and it worked a treat so my thanks go to the people on the above forum. I hope i have helped anybody struggling with a equium a200.
Sorry I can't put the actual link in Forum rules I haven't posted enough.

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

I have a client's machine on which one of his darling little brats has created or reset the BIOS password and now denies all knowledge of the thing. I seem to recall there is either a means of generating the default password from the Service Tag or, failing that, shorting out one of the motherboard chips. That I have done before but would prefer to know which chip it is.
The system is a Dell Dimension 3100.
Anyone able to help before I condemn the thing to perdition and a drop kick into the neighbours wheelie bin?
 

A:Missing Dell BIOS (boot) password

Difficult task.
What you describe will not happen. But you can check with Dell support to see if the computer is registered to that owner. Then Dell will send someone out as an authorized service rep with a little disk that runs the fix... and has a cost.
I would first see if the hard drive can be accessed while installed in an external USB enclosure.
If it can, then even if passworded, you can put in a replacement drive. And Dell XP install disk will work.
Then you can buy a Dell motherboard on eBay. Many Optiplex boards are cheaper, and work better than the Dimension boards... for a cheaper price... around $70 to $85.... or refurbished Dell government computers are for sale at PCSurplusonline for $120 to $180 with shipping... just move the board into the 3100. And the dell OS will work.

I cannot find terms c88 on the board from what I can see without taking the body apart, My wireless is in a different location on the bottom thru a access panel. I have tried a boot disk that wood update bios and fix issue but no fix there either, What does c88 bypass when jumped? I also have a finger scan that gives me the scan your finger or enter password error, Any help or Ideas wood help greatly. Thanks

Dell Inspiron 1521 Tag 595b this laptop has a pice of plastic chipped off the right front cornner; impact is most likely the cause. I have a password via masterpw.exe V2.20 for tags ending with 595b. At the grey screen of password entry ..... I see no field with curser as I type in the password and the password used fails. So, what could it be bad Mobo, bad password or both?

Appreciate any kind of help.........please, thanx.

A:Bad Mobo or Password

Probably a bad password... That one is a tough one if you did not set the original password.
If you bought the laptop from Dell, you can ship it back to them for removal at a price. Otherwise, keep on trying.
When you first press the on button, can you then immediately press the <F1>. <F2>, <F10>, or <F12> key and get a setup screen. If so, the motherboard is OK.

I have a WinXP pro box set up for password protected sharing. I set permissions for "Everyone" to be allowed and I can access the share over the network just fine. But when I remove "Everyone" from the permissions list and allow a different user that I simply named "User", then I cannot access it.

I run Vista and just get an access denied message (no login box??). When I use a file manager (servant salamander), I at least get a login box. I type in "User" and the password for "User" but I just get an access denied message.

I also tried creating another account with the same name that I use to log into the Vista machine but still no luck. I really can't see anything I've done wrong :S Any ideas?
 

A:Password protected shares cannot be accessed over network

Don't forget there may be a space recorded at the end of a password... experiment with Capitalization, spaces, and spellings.

A:Admin Password

If you are the registered owner of the laptop you are probably better off contacting Dell support.

Would any one have the program to get your BIOS password or a Boot Password....

I have a Dell XPS M1710?

I know there is other trends in here but none about how to download the software..
 

A:Password Authentication System error

Not in the way you describe the problem.
There should not be a BIOS password or Boot password unless you installed it yourself... and Dell is not much help once it has been passworded... but they will repair the password problem for a fee if you ship the computer back to them after verifying that you are the legitimate owner.

I saw a similiar thread on here but it didn't help me. I networked a Vista and a XP computer together. And the Vista can access the XP with no problems. But when I try to access XP to Vista, it ask for a username and password. Both computer do not use any password whatsoever. The XP has two users on it but there is no login password. I open the the window to: User Account-Advanced-Manage Password and it was empty. And so what do I need to do, to get rid of this password box. Or what do I put in the blanks? I never enter any password for networking. I'm puzzle can someone help me?
 

A:XP wanting networking password

On Vista, using an ADMIN account, cp->User Accounts.

Change Guest
Enable the account
Set a password
click ok to close

Go back to Change Guest

now disable the account (which will only stop keyboard logins)

Assuming sharing and the firewall is setup correctly, enter the Guest Password

ok so i got this hp pavilion ze5800, pretty good machine and i dont know what the bios password is, bios manufactured by phoenix i do know that much, can anyone tell me a way to retrieve the password or bypass it?
 

A:phoenix bios password hack or bypass or software to find it HELP!!

There is probably no easy way.

The passwords on laptops are designed to not be easily bypassed or reset.

I would take it back to the place you bought it and get your money back.

Wearing some oven gloves probably wouldn't hurt either.

99.5% chance it that reset button works

1) make sure you in fact have the right button
2) It takes more then a quick press (so you don't accidentally hit it and reset). Hold it pressed until you see the LED lights start to blink in pattern (tho shouldn't be longer 10-15 second press tops)
3. if still not work and you're in the .05% probability, buy a new router!

A:Password problem fixed. Read problem with HDD

Read failure on internal hard drive
The problem seems to be caused by the following file: partmgr.sysClick to expand...

Looks like a fault with the Partition on the HardDrive (Fat32 or NTFS)

You could just use a Windows CD, remove the partition (prompted innitially when setting up) and then install Windows on a clean Partition

You may be able to repair the Partition too (as long as it's not a hardware fault with the actual HardDrive)
Have a look at Gparted bootCD for that

Edit:

Or run a Drive Diagnostics on your HardDrive
