I accidentally pressed the wrong off button to turn off my tablet it asked for my password non of my passwords worked there is a plus box and my tablet is locked. I don't know anything about computers


Hi Janie Dont panic... I'm sure there is a simple fix. But you really must remember your passwords better. There are many Apps and software programs to help you with this. Find a good method & stick with it. The future of passwords & security can only get harder. You haven't mentioned what brand / model you are dealing with. This does make it hard for anyone to troubleshoot. Find your manual. get an online PDF manual to learn the key sequences to press to wake it up or reset the device. Where did you purchase? Perhaps they can help! Cheers

I lost my admin password for bios setup


You can clear the bios password by removing the CMOS battery from the motherboard, make sure the PC is disconnected from any other power source, wait a good 3 - 5 minutes, hit the power button a few times to make sure all power is drained from the capacitors, and then replace the CMOS battery. You can then power on the PC and the bios password will be removed.

Heya Laptop Everytime i switch on my laptop a thing comes up sayin unlock this computer asking for a user name and password!!!! Which i dont have a clue about..?? And also it say this computer is in use ans has been lockedonly ACO26199T/user(user) or an administrator can unlock this.


It sounds like you closed the lid, which put the computer into "Standby mode" (which can be seen by the flashing green lightning bolt light on the front) . Whenever you turn your computer on from standby mode, it locks the computer so that an unauthorized person can't open your computer and run your programs without permission. To log in, you can just type the password you normally type when you log in to the computer. If you don't have a password, try just hitting enter instead of typing a password. (You may need to hit Ctrl + Alt + Delete before you can enter your password, just follow the instructions on your screen)

I have a HP/Compaq TC4400 tablet pc. I recently had to replace the motherboard and now have a problem with booting. I get the following message: The following configuration change was requested to this computers Trusted platform module(TPM): Allow a user to take ownership of the TPM Then it gives me only one option f1 to boot. When I choose F1 it asks me for a setup password. The individual I purchased it from told me that I am getting this error because i have the wrong CPU installed. This appears to me to be a password set on my used mother board. Does anyone have any suggestions how I can get this unit up and running. Thanks Damon


The problem is with the CPU compatibility with the bios. It is fixable, but can take a bit of patience. If you upgraded your cpu along with your mainboard, take your old cpu and put it in your new motherboard. That should allow you to boot past the F1 prompt. You don't have to completely reassemble the system to do the following, just screw down the heatsink so that the cpu doesn't overheat. Leave the fan unscrewed, but placed normally so that it carries the heat away from the cpu. (You can get instructions to take apart the laptop via a pdf file from the hp support website. Use the file for the Memory Modules, it's a bit more detailed, but download the maintenance and Service guide as it covers everything.) Download the latest bios for your system from the HP support website. sp40187.exe is the latest bios update file that I found. I created a bootable usb with the bios update following the directions on the hp support site. If you don't have a small usb drive just create a bootable cd following the instructions from the .exe file that you downloaded. Place the USB or cd in your laptop and power on.Hit F9 to show the boot menu. Choose the USB or cd to boot from.It will run the bios update utility. Follow the directions to update the bios.After you have updated the bios, check the version number by hitting F10 and viewing the system information from bios. I would let it boot up once just to make sure and then replace your cpu, with the newer one. Reassemble your system. The bios should recognize the newer cpu and you can install your operating system, if it's not already installed.Be careful of the plastic around the screw holes inside the system. It can be a bit brittle and tends to break easily.
