Laptop stopped asking for password

Q: Laptop stopped asking for password

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 Could it be that my system is now way out of date?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.

Preferred Solution: Laptop stopped asking for 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.)

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

I apologize in advance if this question was already answered somewhere else. I did search the forum for an answer to this issue before starting this thread.

I am running Windows 7 Starter on a Dell Inspirion Mini. I have set the Power Options to require my password when the computer wakes up, but for some reason Windows is not asking for my password when waking up or coming out of hibernation.

I changed my password just to see if maybe that would help, it didn't. Any suggestions on other settings I might want to check? The PC just started doing this, I've had it for 2-3 years.


Thank you.

A:Windows Stopped Asking For My Password

Interesting. I would try jogging the settings by turning off the password requirement, rebooting, then turning it back on. You could create a new power profile also, in case the existing one is corrupt. More radical would be to create a new user account, and then there's a partial or full system reset.

I updated my os from 8 to 8.1 a few months back. I put a password and pin as sign in options, and have been using the pin ever since.
I started my pc today and noticed it was asking for the password not the pin. Since, I had not been using it, I forgot the password. There is no 'sign in options' for me to switch to the pin. I have tried almost every password that I might have put, but no luck. I'm sure I must have put some hint for the password, but it didn't show up even once.
There is an option to access my Microsoft account, but since I don't have any saved WiFi networks, that's not an option.
I have no idea what to do. I think it's a bug of some kind, and I don't think anyone has encountered this before. Please help me.

A:8.1 stopped asking for Pin. forgot password

If you try and fail the PIN a few times it will revert to password only as a security measure. Perhaps someone was trying to get into your PC. If you google for "Windows password recovery tool" there are many programs available that claim this ability. I can't recommend one however, no experience.

I read the rather snippy answer given to someone wanting help recovering an adm password. I would like information as to what caused my password to stop working. When I turned on my computer after an Microsoft upgrade, it would not longer recognize my password. The only other new thing that I have done is to download DropBox two or three days ago and also set it up on my laptop and phone more recently. I am assuming that if I knew the cause of this disfunction, I might be able to figure out how to recover from it.

I'll start from the beginning, I was on the computer and the keyboard started acting funky. It wouldn't type letters in all the time and some keys wouldn't work. This has never happened before and it was working just minutes ago. I restarted the computer thinking it would fix it. I reach the login screen and to my horror my password doesn't work. I type it in 2 more times carefuly checking the number of letters(only shows dots on the screen) I figured my keyboard borked out and I click the sybmol in the bottem right to access the onscreen keyboard but when I click it, it won't open. I really panic now and shut down the computer and get into safe mode. Except I need my password to get in to it! Do I need to take it into a repair shop or what?

A:I can't login, my password has suddenly stopped working

You can try accessing the Advanced Boot Options menu. Turn off computer and restart and as Windows splash screen begins to load continuously tap F8. This will bring up the Advanced Boot Options menu. From here you have several options. You might try System Restore Option. This will restore important Windows files settings back to previous settings. This utility is easy to use and gives step-by-step instructions to revert to a point in the past called a 'restore point' to return your important files and settings.
 
Good Luck and post back and let us know.

A:Laptop fan stopped working

Hi,

Usually you will need to replace the faulty fan (sounds like your CPU fan).

The only other thing is to check the BIOS and see if fans are enabled.
(If this feature is available).

It would help if we had some info as to make and model, motherboard etc:

Please upload your msinfo32.nfo file:

1. Start Menu>Type msinfo32 into the Search programs and files box
2. When it opens, go to File, Save >Save as msinfo32.nfo and save in a place you will remember
3. Let it finish the process of gathering and saving the system info
4. Right click the .nfo file, click send to compressed (zipped) folder>Upload the .zip file here.

Then we should be able to help you with installation etc.

Cheers

The mouse pointer moves but neither right or left clicks have any visible effect.

I can navigate with tabs and arrows but that works intermittently and not at all in some windows.

Nothing has been added to the computer since it last worked perfectly and it failed before loading the latest updates.

Hello All,

I have a HP Pavilion zv5000 running XP and i can't get it to boot anymore.

It did boot and work for a few times after i got it but now it doesn't. It would do the initial surge where the fans come on but then it would silence and turn off after a few seconds and the screen stayed black.

I removed one of the memory sticks and booted, after the initial surge it stayed on unlike before, but it didn't kick on further and still nothing came on screen.

I did try a different screen from one of my other pavilions as i know they are prone to inverter problems but still it just stayed black.

Does anyone have ideas please, i really don't want to have to take it to a shop.
 

A:Laptop has stopped booting up.

If it was a faulty hard drive you would still get something up on the screen, with an error message relating to the hard drive, so that's not the problem.

Similarly, with faulty RAM. you would get a series of fault beeps from the BIOS which I assume you are not getting?

I assume you've tried turning it on while it's connected to the A/C adapter (in case the battery is flat)?
If yes, then it's my guess the motherboard is faulty. Only an inspection by someone who knows about the insides of a laptop can confirm that I'm afraid.

Hi there I am looking for some help with my old laptop. It is a Dell Inspiron 6000 and the PSU has stopped working altogether.

I have some other dell laptops and since it is not worth buying a new PSU for this old laptop I was wondering if it would work with one of the PSU from the others I have.

One is also fairly old: Inspiron 1525 with a supply from the PA-12 family putting out 19.5V and 3.34 Amps. The other is a new Latitude E6410 putting out 19.5 V and 4.62 Amps.

The label on the back of the Inspiron 6000 says it takes an input of 19.5V and 4.62A. SO my question is will either of these work? I only need to power the laptop I don't need to charge the battery.

Thank you in advance

the psu from latitude E6410 is identical to the one in inspiron 6000. 19V and 4.62A. they should work.

are you saying that IE does not open or it does not connect to a web page ?

how do you normally connect by wireless or cable to the router ?

can we see the following
------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
Next
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste

Not sure what kind of computer you have or any specs. Can you start the computer from the cd and get to where you press r to get into reovery console. If so at the recovery console promt type chkdsk /r space after chkdsk before /r
You may have to type chkdsk c: /r space after chkdsk before c: and space after c: before /r Good Luck!!!

Not sure which forum to put this in, cannot figure out the cause. I had taken several photo's of a few items I wanted to sell via Craigslist. Took pictures using wife's Galaxy S3, took the microSD card out and use am adapter to upload into pictures folder. I was able to place an ad, Unforitunily the items didn't sell, wanted to list somewhere else, but now I cannot view any of these jpg files! Every photo program that came with windows 8.1 and pre-loaded toshiba stuff, along with Adobe photo lite all say they're unable to view these files. Not sure what I can do. Suggestions?

I own a Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop. Not too long ago the screen was broken, and since then I've been using A Samsung Syncmaster 931 Bf hooked up to the vga out port. A few days ago I updated the video driver raedon x1400 mobile, and now the monitor does not respond, and the Fn+F8 appears to do nothing at all (doesnt even try to switch). Right now it is running to the tv through S-Video (Nasty). I am using windows xp sp3. Is there any way to get the vga out to work again ? I cannot access the bios screen as it only appears on the main screen which is screwed.

Just one more little thing, my laptop web cam stopped working around the time my library collapsed, I downloaded all the latest drivers, so those shouldn't be a problem. Again it worked fine a few days ago and it still works when I use it with skype, but when I try to open it with "amcap" I get the screen below. The real reason I need this camera is because I'm using a video editing software, and the program can't find the cam, therefore I get no picture.

Thank you so much, if there is anything I can help with, just ask

Try uninstalling and then reinstalling Amcap. I presume you have the full version and not the trial version?

winxp home. 2.4 ghz/192 mb ram. hewlett packard ze4500 laptop.

Well please any help would be great lol.
My fan was coming on more frequently than it used to when i first got it a year ago.
So while it was going i blew into the fan outake piece and all this dust came back in face.

I blew into it another time and then it completely stopped. Uh oh. It wont come back on now and so my laptop overheats and shuts down.

Now when i put my ear to the fan it is making a very quiet humming noise.

Im writing this now by resting my laptop on a frozen chicken..hah.

So should I take the back off and have a look at the fan? what should i be looking for?

any advice is much appreciated, thanks.

One day, my laptop was blocked from my school network cause of suspicious activitt related to possible malware. I tried fully scanning it using Kaspersky, but found nothing. My school then adviced me to reinstall Windows 8.1. I did, but it still didn't work. Later that day, i decided to do something which i regret very much now. I went on to reinstall windows by fully wiping the drive and went asleep while the process went on. Now my laptop doesn't start anymore. I have a Lenovo Z50 with no disc drive, installing through disc is no option for me. Plz help, i need that laptop very badly for school
 

A:My laptop stopped working

UPDATE: i got my laptop to work, but i have a different issue now. Apparently, there are some problems within the software which is stopping windows 8.1 from working. However, everytime it's trying to solve these problems, it fails to do so, leaving a report for me in system32, which i can't reach.

Translation of the picture:
The pc can't be recovered with startrecovery. Click on 'advanced options' if you wish to try other options to recover your pc of click on 'shut down' if you wish to shut down your pc

I don't know what to do now. I don't have a copy of windows 8.1, as it came with the laptop and every attempt to start it results in the same screen as shown in the picture. Please, help.

Try re-installing the sound driver. You can download it from your laptop manufacturer's website.
You will need to know the model name & number of your laptop to get the correct driver for it.

I recently setup a wireless internet connection for a friend, they have a HP Laptop 510 and a Lynksys WAG54GS wireless router. When I first set the network up about a month ago both the laptop and the router communicated happily.

When they returned from a weekend away they found that all the lights had gone out on the router. They switched the router back on and have been unable to access the internet wirelessly ever since.

Iíve checked the settings of both the laptop and the router and everything seems in order. The laptop will see the wireless network, and reports that it is connected to the wireless network. The router sees the laptops MAC address as been connected to it. But neither device can ping each other.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Yours - Antony

This is my first time posting so I hope I'm doing this right. Anyway, the last time my speakers were functioning properly I was watching a movie when my battery ran out. I quickly plugged in the AC adapter and booted my computer up again and that's when the speakers stopped working.

Strangely enough the sound works if I plug in my headphones. I've made sure the speakers aren't muted and all that other stuff so what could the problem be? I believe I have a Realtek sound card and the drivers are up to date last I checked. I'd greatly appreciate any help.

A:Laptop Keyboard just stopped working

LamerJoe,

I am led to believe that BIOS is not the culprit here, I think you are receiving an internal power malfunction and it is disrupting the internal keyboard function. So, to see if this works, I would like you to unplug the power cable, remove the battery for around five-ten minutes, replace the battery, then plug the power cord in, and reboot the laptop and test the keyboard.

Please, re-post if you still have issues.

I was using the internet on my laptop and the conection went off for a few seconds. After that, I couldn't access the router anymore, not even by cable. So I tried, te basic turn it on and off and I could access it by cable, but the wireless is still not working on my laptop. I checked if the wireless board was properly configured and everything seems alright.
I think the problem is on the laptop because the wireless works on my phone and tablet!

My Sony laptop has stopped working

Wireless switch is on, but network diagnostics keep telling me to switch it on

During reboot the light goes on and then when fully booted it turns off

I have disabled and enabled the network adapter

I have checked the adapter and the driver is upto date and the system tells me it is working properly

Is there anything else I can check?

Many Thanks
 

A:Wireless has stopped working on laptop

Go to the Device Manager and uninstall the driver for the network adapter. Restart the laptop and Windows should reinstall the driver automatically. See if this clears up the problem. If not, it might have failed. You could try going to Add and Remove Programs (if XP) or Programs and Features (if Vista or W7) and uninstall the LAN driver if one is there and install a fresh driver from Sony.

If none of that works, consider getting a USB wireless adapter.

Verify the screen resolution and refresh rate.

Aside from that, try manually updating or reinstalling the laptop video drivers. The drivers should be available from the laptop manufacturers website (and are the only recommended drivers which should be used).

Recently, after a few hours my laptop suddently loses connection to the router and from then it keeps connecting and loosing the connection for a few hours. Sometimes it connects successfuly .
This happens while my other pc, connected by cable to the router, works perfectly.The next day i open the laptop the internet works fine.
I noticed ,when i had another router, that the laptop often had problems connecting to it while my pc was working. It would connect a lot slower after i would reset the router.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate installed on both.
Could it be the laptop?

*Also
Windows troubleshooter says it is the router's problem while the yahoo messenger troubleshooter says it is Http Connection problem.
 

A:My laptop stopped connecting to the router

Does the laptop experience the same problems when connected by ethernet?

Make sure you have the latest wireless driver. If an integrated adapter get the driver from the laptop manufacturer's web site. If an external adapter get the driver from the adapter manufacturer's web site. In either case if you already have the latest correct driver reinstall it anyhow in case the installed instance is corrupted.

When you are experiencing the trouble ...

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

Also show ...

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

My laptop just stopped detecting them. It won't detect it at school or home and if I can't fix it by 3rd block tomorrow the techs will take it and that means it gets reformatted and I don't want that to happen. The wireless radio (what detects networks) says that it's on in some menus and off in others. When I go to the wireless radio's own menu it say's off but when I click turn on nothing happens. The icon on the monitor for the wireless radio is lit up but it still isn't detecting anything. Can anyone help me?

What happened was she was using it and she opened I.E. then the screen froze, I.E. closed and the screen started to slowly get darker. Then The windows boot up screen popped up and then it shut off. Is this a hardware problem or is there a way you can do a system restore from safemode, would you need to reload the OS? I dunno.

I would appreciate any help

So my laptop's going on three years old here. And just the other day, it was working perfectly fine until I noticed it was getting insanely hot. Not terribly long after that, it suddenly and without warning shut down. It was when I had turned it back on that I noticed that my fan wasn't working. It's now been roughly a week, and the fan hasn't come back online, and since it's the beginning of June, my laptop is having some major heat management issues.

So, I don't want to have to crack my laptop open to take a look inside, but I fear it's my only option. I've tried using compressed air, or searching for any way possible to start the fan up from Windows, but all hope seems lost. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

thanks,
emiliano

Not even 2 weeks old? I would strongly advise you work with whomever you bought it from and use the warranty process.

Hi. I was recently using my laptop, when I wiggled the power cable a bit and suddenly the laptop stopped charging. I have a bad feeling the battery has died or something. I tried using another power cable and that didnt fix it (so I dont think the cable is a problem).

Is there anything else I can try before resorting to buying a new battery?

Its a HP Probook 650 G1

Hi everyone! I recently got a new laptop, a Sony Vaio PCG-K15. I bought it used from a colleague, and the hard drive in it was bad. I sent away for a new hard drive, and it came in, and now everything's up and running just fine. I'm running Windows XP Pro with SP2 and it runs great, but yesterday, the suspend/hibernate features of the laptop just disappeared. They're no longer present in Power Options, and they're no longer present in Start > Turn Off Computer. All I have is Log off, Shut down, or Restart. Can anyone shed any light on to why these options suddenly disappeared and how I can get them back?

Thanks very much!

A good few months ago my laptops wireless stopped working, nothing to do with me. Since that I've been using a wireless adapter which worked fine until I managed to brake it.
Can anyone help me get my laptops wireless working again?
It light is indicating that it is switched off, amber. It should be blue.
I have tryed switching it off and on many times. I've tryed system restore, everything.
I'm affraid to take the back off and I have no money to get it fixed.
If anyone has any ideas I will be very grateful.
Thanks, Laura-Jayne.
