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.)

well, i'm stumped ** for now **

any help would be great
AMD XP 2600+
ASUS A7N8X-Deluxe motherboard
256 DDR400

this was basically my old system before I got new motherboard / processor
Trying to put it into a new case and it gives out error

Boots up
Shows the 2600+ as being only 1250 Mhz
proper amount of ram

Then gives out error(s)
Keyboard error or no keyboard present
Keyboard is locked out - Unlock the key
CMOS checksum error - Defaults loaded
WARNING !!CPU have been changed
I did NOT change anything other than the case the board is going into
I have a "keyboard lock" amongst my other pins for HDD LED / PWR Switch / PWR LED / RESET etc..... but, I don't actually have any wires from the case ( this one or old one ) that ever went into that

Anyone have any thoughts ??
Swiper !!!


=======================================================
turned out to be dust on wake on keyboard jumper on the board
crazy mixed up dust anyways LOL
 

A:keyboard locked out - unlock keyboard error

I'd first try clearing the CMOS using the clear jumper. If that doesn't work, remove the MB from the case and try firing it up on the bench, you may be shorting something with the installation into the new case.

Here I have my problem.
This threads title message appears during boot up. There is also "cmos checksum error - defaults loaded", because I cleared bios. If I don't plug in the keyboard, "keyboard error or no keyboard present" message appers too. I predict this is not keyboard issued problem neither cmos. Once has computer booted properly, so I was able to configure bios settings, but I did not connect hd preventing multiple starting and stopping. I did reset to computer twice or three time checking if everything is ok (there obviously "disk boot failure ..." message showed up at the end of bios bootup proces). Then I turned off computer, connected hd ide cable and power and started it again. Titled message was written out again. I am confused, because I'm sure I don't have keylock switch. There is a keylock conector, but it is disconnected.
Problem had already appeared few years ago.
Please help solving this problem. Any suggestion would be good. Thank You.
 

A:keyboard is locked out - unlock the key

Checksum error is generally an indication that the CMOS battery is flat. It's the thumbnail sized watch-type battery on the motherboard. As far as your keyboard is concerned, what your problem is likely to be is a key is stuck on your keyboard and it's simply the fact that startup has got further that it's telling you this. Please try another keyboard before worrying about more expensive devices. I know it seems simple and mundane, but it's always a good idea to start troubleshooting from the bottom up.

Good luck.

I receive this key upon bootup and have tried 3 different keyboards with same results.
I've tried clearing cmos/replacing battery but to no avail.
Obviously can't enter cmos or reinstall windows.
I've tried ctrl/alt/esc,f-2,del, .
I still get this cmos checksum error, keyboard locked, unlock key.
I've checked all the keys on all 3 keyboards.

Any and all suggestions welcomed - PLEASE !
SOLVED !!
The problem was the keylock was locked not the keyboard!
in other words if you have an older computer that has a keylock
on the front and you receive an error like (keyboard locked out ,
try unlocking key) it may mean the lock on the front itself and not the keyboard !
Thanks for any help though !

Hi

I think you enabled accidentally the Num Lock
Num Lock key is used to convert part of the main keyboard to act as a numeric keypad rather than letters.

Usually you can find the info in your user manual how to enable/disable Num Lock
In my case I have to press Fn + F11 (in some cases FN + F12) to get it enabled.

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.

Dear Lenovo-Community,my Thinkpad S1 Yoga change into tablet modus not only when I fold back the monitor but also when I have closed the lid normaly and than reopened it or sometimes by slightly moving the monitor or a minor percussion of the table. That is very annoying, because than I have no access to keyboard or touchpad while beeing in the laptop-shape. I can revive keyboard/touchpad by folding back the monitor and than back to the normal laptop shape, but this works only one time! After that I have to send the thinkpad in the energy saving mode and wake it up, to get keyboard/touchpad back.I think it is a problem with the sensor, but does there a software setting exist so keyboard/touchpad keep unlocked in tablet-modus? Or a way to switch off the tablet-modus completely? I can live without the tablet-modus and the thinkpad is probably too old to be worth a great repair.My system is fully updated. Any idea out there?

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.

A:Help me plz..... unlock bitlocker

From a Microsoft article about BitLocker:






Quote:
When a local administrator initializes BitLocker, the administrator should also create a recovery password or a recovery key. Without a recovery key or recovery password, all data on the encrypted drive may be inaccessible and unrecoverable if there is a problem with the BitLocker-protected drive.


Source: BitLocker Drive Encryption Overview

But I also found another Microsoft article that may permit using a Data Recovery Agent.

Scenario 14: Using a Data Recovery Agent to Recover BitLocker-Protected Drives (Windows 7)

The problem is, drive encryption is supposed to be secure. It's supposed to make it difficult, if not impossible, to recover data. Otherwise, what's the point in using encryption if everybody can just hack their way in.
