Preferred Solution: How to unlock my labtop

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.)

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.

my labtop won't come on somehow. I definitely turn it on, and it has plenty of batteries, because the two light on the side of the bottom of the labtop is on, the power light and the battery light, it's both on. but the screen is still plain black. i don't know what's wrong with it, it's pretty new, i got it just last year. it won't work even with a battery cord connect to it. i tried closing the labtop by pushing down the power button for several seconds so the powerlight would turn off, than i turn it back on again. the powerlight turned on, but the screen is still black.

I am having problems with my Dell Inspiron 2650 with Windows XP Home.
It just turns off randomly without warning, usually while I am playing Age of Mythology by Microsoft. It also kills itself while running McAfee VirusScan and Nero CD burning software. At one point it was doing it every 30 minutes or so. I finally ran enough of VirusScan to detect some viruses, which I promtly deleted, ran ad-aware, etc. It subsided temporarily, but now does it almost exclusively while playing AOM. It the game creating the problem? Or the cd-rom? I am lost on this one.

When you try to load safe mode do any error messages come up before it shuts down?

My labtop is constantly shutting down on its own. Sometimes it shut down when I turn on the labtop after 5 seconds, sometimes it shut down in 20 minutes, and sometimes it just won't even turn on. I think its because it is overheating but I don't know what to do. Can anyone give me simple steps that can possibly solve this problem? I have a window XP labtop, bought about less than a year. If you need to know anything I can tell you... if my labtop doesn't shut down automaticly again. Thanks!

A:Toshiba Labtop

It's hard to imagine it overheating in 5 seconds. If it's still under warranty, I suggest contacting Toshiba, don't let the warranty run out before you let them take a crack at it.

One quick check, try a memory test, here's two to choose from.

Hello coolchiliboy

Try logging in in Safe Mode.
When boot up begins, start pressing F8 repeatedly until you see the Advanced Options page.
Select Safe Mode and try to boot all the way into XP there.
Post back what happens then.

Is your copy of XP genuine?
Have you actually activated it before?

I have a ASUS U36SG CI5 2.5 6GB/500 GT610M 13.3" W7HP labtop,

i have spilled a liquid substance on it 2 times, first its was icetea, cleaned it in disstiled water, worked fine after, second time around i spilled coffee, and thats when it went wrong.

afte i spilled the coffee, the labtop turned itself off. so i took out the AC, and battery. and left it to dry for a day or 2, then turned it back on, but it keept tuening on and shutting off. so i took the labtop apart, and cleaned the mobo, and other componants in distilled water, looks all new a shiny now . but when i tryed to tuen it on again, it loaded to the part where it asked, start windows nomaly, or repair. then i pressed one of them and it shut down and started to turn on and shut down after a few sec, and kept on doing this. reapeated this a few times, but the result dident change, so i tryed without battery, would not power up, just with the battery, would not power up. so i left the ac and battery in, and came to the start windows normaly or repair, took out the AC, and it could boot all the way. but as soon as i plug the AC back in it turns off.

So my big question is, what could or is this problem, and can it be solved without replaceing any major components.

The first cd it takes less then 20 mins to completely back up as much as it will. So I switch out cds and the second one starts loading, that doesn't take very long for it to fill up either. But when I went to switch cds again I got a pop up message indicading that something had gone wrong and that the ending of the backing up on that cd and that I had to redue it again. So I started again and it didn't take long for the cd to get filled up again, at this point about 25% of my computer had been backed up. I then switched out cd's again, expecting that it wouldn't take long for this third cd to get filled up, maybe 20 min. at the most like the other cds. About 15 min later I checked on my computer and it showed that about 31% of my computer has now been backed up. That was 4 hours ago and it is still saying that only 31% is done. Should I be consurned? How can I speed this process up?

Hi, i got a HP Pavillion dv7-2126eo. I encounter BSOD often when I'm on a foreign wireless internett. When im over at friends house i get BSOD all the time. I've had this pc for 2-3months now. I've encounter BSOD 2-3times at home. Yet every time im over at my friends house i get it several times.

The error says: "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
check for updates etc."

I've run MemTest and i got 0 errors detected. My pc does not overheat when I get BSOD.
i've added html report and TSF_vista_support folder.
any help would be appreciated.

A:Hp labtop - BSOD

Your wire connection to the internet is disabled. Is this intentional? What else did you disable when disabling the connection?

4 of the last 5 memory dumps blame NETw5v64.sys (your wireless networking device driver). The other blames a Windows network driver that was likely crashed by your NETw5v64.sys driver.

This should be the link for your 64 bit wireless networking driver. Please download this one, uninstall the old one, and then install the new one.

Here's a summary of the last 5 memory dumps:

Why does my laptop heat up so fast??? the fan stays on continuously.

Do I have too many running processes?
I usually have around 45 running processes. Can someone help me to reduce the running processes? I dont know which ones i need!

Thanks..
 

A:Why Is My Labtop Fan Always Running?

You might open Task Manager to see if a single process is using 90-100% of your CPU. Right click an empty space on the task bar and select Task Manager. Select the Processes tab and scroll through the listed processes. If one is using all of the CPU power, the fan will run constantly, fast, and usually loudly.

I've had problems with AdobeUpdater and SymantecUpdater in the past...to the extent that I uninstalled Adobe Reader and Norton AntiVirus (Norton couldn't come up with a solution).

Let me know if this solves your problem or if you find the process that may be causing the problem.

im ok with upgrading regular pc's, i've built a few, but i have a friend who asked me to take a look at his labtop, its a p3 forgot how fast, but he wants to upgrade the ram, he has 160mb, i guess i gotta find out how much it can hold.. he has about a gig left on the hard drive, not sure im gonna upgrade that, but if i do, i just wanna make sure its not rocket science... sorry i dont have the model number, and its a compaq...

should i be able to do it? yes or no?
 

A:labtop upgrades...

You can definetly add more RAM if it isn't maxed out (probably not, 160 is a weird number) and replacing the HD can be done too.

You can check all the hardware limitations from the Compaq website (if you know the model number of course).

Here's the problem: Whenever I turn on my labtop and after couple seconds of using it, the screen suddenly turns blue and on the top says "beginning dump of physical memory" and then below it says "physical dump complete" then my labtop restarts. I think the cause of the problem was because I turned the labtop off by unplugging it [rather than doing the proper shut down] because it kept freezing. Any solutions to this problem? I know I didn't download any virus-infected programs because I have A LOt of anti-virus firewalls and the only things I put on the computer are: starcraft, msn messenger, and limewire. Any help will be appreciated.

Here are my specs: Windows 2000 professional, Pentium4, 400 Mhz

A:Labtop problem

It seems that you have either run out of memory.

How much memory is currently installed on the system (RAM)

And are you positive those are the only things on the computer?

to check:

control panel>>system>>look at the bottom of the window that pops up and tell us what it says.

I need to clean the keys of my labtop. I think wine got spilled on it, and all my keys get stuck. How do I open the labtop to get in there to clean the keys? I have a hp pavilion zv6000. Any ideas? or a diagram?

Thanks
 

A:Opening a Labtop

-=Go here to download the HP service manual:
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00364919.pdf

-=Pages 107-117 detail the instructions for removal of the keyboard.

-=Page 75 has part numbers for replacement keyboards, if you want to just replace it.

-=Here is a link to an online store where you can buy the keyboard. It's not the lowest price, but it's a reliable vendor.
http://www.brilliantstore.com/hp_laptop_keyboards_dekcell_cpa_1069.html

-=If you want to look for more price and store options, hit http://froogle.com and search for the product number for the appropriate keyboard. For the US version it is 383664-001.

PS: *whistles* that's a long process just to remove a keyboard... Have fun and be careful. Oh, and remember that you may be voiding your warranty.

This post is cross-listed in other areas.

I am having problems with my Dell Inspiron 2650 with Windows XP Home.
It just turns off randomly without warning, usually while I am playing Age of Mythology by Microsoft. It also kills itself while running McAfee VirusScan and Nero CD burning software. At one point it was doing it every 30 minutes or so. I finally ran enough of VirusScan to detect some viruses, which I promtly deleted, ran ad-aware, etc. It subsided temporarily, but now does it almost exclusively while playing AOM. It the game creating the problem? Or the cd-rom? I am lost on this one.
 

A:Labtop just turns off?

What is a Labtop?

Is it something like a Laptop?
Sounds like an overheating issue. Are the airvents free of dust etc? Has it always done it?
