How to unlock HP Pavilion

Q: How to unlock HP Pavilion

I pawned my laptop for awhile. They changed the password, I got it home, changed it back, and now can't open it by entering the same password that (I thought) I had changed it back to. I am only able to get to the lock screen, where you have to enter the password to do anything else. Is there any way that I can ever get back in to my laptop?

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

My HP Pavilion 27xi monitor displays the message "OSD LOCKOUT" whenenever I try to use the menu. I've tried every remedy I could find on this forum, including holding down the power button for 10 or 20 sec. Nothing works. At this point, I'd be happy just to do a factory reset. The problem occurs also when the monitor is disconnected from the host computer. Note that the connected computer is a MACINTOSH (OSX 10.10.5) and there has never been any problem connecting this monitor/computer in the 2+ years I've had the 27xi.  There is not ONE WORD to be found re. use with a Mac in any HP document I can find - everything re. troubleshooting refers to Windows, and general information on Factory Reset and/or OSX Lockout is extremely scarce. How can it be that there is no way to hard-reboot this thing back to factory settings? Help appreciated!

A:How do I unlock my num lock on my hp pavilion g61009sa

Hi, Normally laptops which are under 17" do not have numlock key because its physically space. Vendors can not put a numeric keypad on the keyboard and no point to put numlock on a keyboard which has no numeric keypad. What are you trying to do ? You can buy an external keyboard if you wish numlock key. Regards.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Western Digital WD My Passport 2 TB external hard drive
Western Digital's security software allows a password to be set on the external drive, encrypting it. When the drive is connected to a PC, a virtual CD (VCD) partition runs (via autorun) an unlocker utility WD Drive Unlock.exe, that allows password entry.
When I connect the locked drive to a Windows 7 PC (that does not have any WD software installed), the autoun popup appears and I select "Run WD Drive Unlock.exe". At that point, User Account Control (UAC) elevation prompt appears, requiring Administrator
password in order to continue.
WD Drive Unlock then lets me enter password.
Because of UAC elevation, the unlocker can be used only by an Administrator user or by a standard user account who knows the Administrator password.

QUESTION
Is UAC elevation prompt truly necessary?
Is it appearing because Western Digital hasn't coded the unlocker exe correctly, or would any such utility require UAC elevation?

I'd like to find a way that a standard user account can run the unlocker to enter passsword and access the external drive, without having to know the Windows Admin password.

In Windows XP if a user locked their pc I could simply unlock it using my user name and password because I am the network administrator. This does not seem to work in Windows 7. Is there some setting to return to the way it used to be in XP?

A:Unlock pc

unfortunately; i do not believe there is a way to do such a thing because windows 7 is pretty much a updated version of windows vista whereas xp was completely different in terms of the architecture of the operating system as vista and 7 I would say are more secure than xp by a long shot.

I do have PC based on Gigabyte 970A-DS3P motherboard, I bought it already assembled, and out of the box it had this 3TB Hdd Unlock program installed. I would have to reinstall my system soon and I was wandering what exactly this software is for? What is it do? Will I need it when I'll reinstall my system or not really?

A:3TB Hdd Unlock

It's most likely intended to allow you to see and be able to use all of a large drive.

Windows can only see and utilize about 2.2 TB on a drive that is initialized as MBR. If you had a 3 or 4 TB drive, the portion above 2.2 would be useless and not even visible.

The standard way around that is to initialize as GPT, rather than MBR. GPT doesn't have that 2.2 TB limitation.

BUT--some motherboard manufacturers have provided downloadable software that can overcome the MBR limitation. It tricks Windows, so that you can see and use the portion above 2.2 TB. I'm not sure if it's usable on drives larger than 3 TB. I'm pretty sure that's what Gigabyte has provided to you in this case. I'd guess you have a 3 TB drive and the builder knew of the limitation, so used this special Gigabyte download.

It doesn't have anything to do with installing Windows per se. If your drives are under 2.2 TB you don't need it or if you can initialize the drive as GPT rather than MBR, you don't need it. Otherwise, you do need it, unless you don't care about not being able to use all of a large drive.

Hey guys, i'm currently running a system with a p4p800 se m/b and a p4 2.4Ghz proc. with 1.5gb of ddr 400 ram 2 X 512mb and 2 X 256mb. The problem i'm having is that, my bios sets my fsb at 133 and my ram speed to 266mhz, what i'd like to know is if there is a custom bios or something that can help me unlock the multiplier. I have overclocked my processor to 3.2Ghz and it's running cooler with my cpu cooler but that only pushes my ram to 333mhz. Can you help me?
 

A:P4 Cpu unlock?

P4s are multi locked. There are hardware hacks to unlock however I never recommend doing so.

If it is just that your ram speed increases and you do not want it to, just use a lower divider or ram speed. When you raise the fsb, it is back to where it should be.

Couple things to check:

1. Have you ACTIVATED your license yet with Microsoft? If not, try this... on the Help menu, click Activate Product. Should take you through the process. Of course you'll need the activation key which they usually send to your email.

2. Is it possible you're sharing a document with someone else that may also be editing it at the same time? Probably not because you mentioned it's EVERY document, right?

Hi all,

I'm using a laptop (pentium III, 128mb, 20gb) with a qwerty keyboard. The problem is that some keys are locked in Fn mode. Such as p (is -) o (is 6) etc..
I tries rebooting, hitting f11, f10, system restore but it didnt work. The strnage thing is that other keys such as all the F (1to 12) keys which also have a second function with Fn seem to work like normal.
When I use the Fn key with for instance p I get p but when I hit p without Fn I get -.
Any ideas?
Tnx
