Port Locker problem B570 Laptop- Type 1068

Q: Port Locker problem B570 Laptop- Type 1068

Is there a way to disable the port locker without the password? My fingerprint scanner has stopped working and apparently I don't know the password anymore. I have used the fingerprint scanner for years. I have tried going through the menu and opening the app but all is says it "Enabled" and doesn't offer a way to disable. I tried un installing and that did not seem to do a thing. I can use any of the ports without it. Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Port Locker problem B570 Laptop- Type 1068

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.)


Hey guys, windows 7 unit which the owner says he suspects has virus but he also told me that his company checked for viruses but did not locate any, I ran a few virus scans but those did not produce anything. Symptoms are when I boot, it sometimes goes to windows but takes a long time and just doesn't get to the desktop, it is hanging after the logon screen. In safe mode it goes to desktop in normal time and laptop functions as normal, any ideas why it works as normal only in safe mode but can't reach the desktop in normal mode please?.

A:Lenovo B570 laptop booting problem

Some program or startup is causing the slowdown. You can do a clean boot and from there add services until you find the one causing the problem. It would be a good idea to disable your startup items also.

Hi, I have run into a problem have (Lenovo B570) DOS-BASED. When i tried to install Windows 7 it did not let me do this and crashes within installation.

I am describing in following steps how and what problem i faced during installation
1- I put Windows 7 CD and laptop successfully booted with Windows Setup.

2- While copying windows files to hard disk.
3- After step-2, rather moving on next setup screen, blue window appears have a long error description. The key point in Error message was something like this:
"An unexpected error occurred and setup needs to shutdown" then nothing happens...

2- I have tried with with the replace of ram , I cleaned the motherboard fan too but same result!!!
I am think it need BIOS setting required?

3- I have gone through on some article and someone mentioned there that, on lenovo machine SATA configuration must be set to IDE rather than ACHI(in BIOS)!!!
Can you suggest me how to do the right thing, what should i do?

Thank You.

A:Windows 7 installation Problem in Lenovo B570 Laptop

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals,

Check for newer BIOS update.

Boot into BIOS setup, reset to defaults, save changes. If an EFI BIOS, enable Legacy BIOS or Compatibility Support Module, set DVD drive first to boot, HD second. Then set SATA controller to AHCI to try that first. Save changes and Exit.

Then boot into installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed OS version here.

At first installer screen Press Shift + F10 to open a Command Box, type:

SELECT DISK 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=102400 (for 100gb partition, adjust as desired)

Next click Install Now, then Custom install to Clean Install Windows 7 to the partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.

In addition read over these steps to understand the tools and methods which work best to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail.

After install you can adjust partition size or Create new partitions for data, etc. in Disk Mgmt.You are creating the partition here for the purpose of marking it Active which overcomes certain install failures.

A:Windows XP installation Problem in Lenovo B570 Laptop

First check for all the Win XP drivers for your hardware on the manufacturer's web site.
Lenovo Support - Drivers & Downloads
If your Win XP CD, does not support your Sata Controller, you will need to load drivers to uses at F6.
Load Sata Controller drivers with a floppy disk is the best way.
SATA Drivers - Load in Windows XP Setup on Dual Boot
SATA Drivers - Slipstream into Windows XP CD

My Network got hit today with a new cryptolocker copy cat virus. 
MalwareBytes was the only one to detect the virus, I have sent the files to clam AV, VirusTotal, TrendMirco and Symantec. I figure I share with everyone here as well. 
This virus appears to run as ahrkzlanfawanf.exe and/or ahrkzla.exe and it takes any Filename.txt and filesname.doc and encrypts the content and changes the file extension to *.rtrsxox  
Nasty bugger that encrypted a ton of my network files before someone noticed on my network. 
The Virus additionally request that you download Tor, and pay money for the decryption keys.
Well I am pulling from backups and the infected user noticed it and alerted me to prevent any more infections however the damage is done.
Beware none of the major Anti Virus have put out definitions for this virus and its a pain to restore from backup.  
Good Luck everybody else.

Have anyone plugged in power adapter to the USB type c port to power the laptop?

A:Question about USB type-C port on the Dell Inspiron 15 7659 laptop.

USB C charging is not implemented on the Inspiron 7000 series - you must use the standard round power port.
The whole USB C/3.1/Thunderbolt story takes a while to sort out, but just because there's a USB C port, doesn't mean there's support for charging - or even USB 3.1 aboard.

Thank you very much for your time, help, and attention.  I greatly appreciate it.
I downloaded DDS and ran it several times, but it only generated the "Attach.txt" file, it never generated the "DDS.txt" file, even when I ran it with only the "DDS.txt" option checked.  Earlier today I did run GMER, and I have that log and can post it if that would be appropriate.
Please excuse the length of this post and any lack of clarity.  I have never posted here before today.
The only good thing is that my infected computer is a backup computer that I don't use much and I don't connect it to other computers.  It is not on a network.  However, it has several documents and photos I would like to preserve.  It is also useful as a stand alone computer for basic web browsing (but I still intend to get rid of it once Windows 10 comes out).
The infected computer is a desktop with Windows XP Pro SP3.  It has Microsoft Security Essentials on it but it apparently has been disabled.  While the computer is an XP computer, it is as up to date as an XP computer still can be (i.e., the few updates Microsoft still does I make sure to install).  Unfortunately, the main login has Admin privileges.
I was not aware of any problem with the computer until yesterday.  Yesterday afternoon, I was using the computer and I noticed it was very sluggish.  I checked the Task Manager and saw that 2 different "explorer.exe" process... Read more

problem with fans.when the computer sleeps, they spin at full speed. it doesn?t matter if the power supply is connected or not. they never stop. when the computer is turned off and you connect the power supply, the fans start spinning.when you send to hibernate, the fans turn off, but if the power supply is connected they periodically fans turn on and turn off immediately. no matter how and how charged both batteries are or temperature. Is it anyone so smart who came up with such nonsense?On related topics in the BIOS there should be a normal S3, not that **bleep** now. this will solve the problem even with sleep. And now I have to use only hibernate when closing the laptop.

I have a problem with my laptop. I spent majority of the day today on it because I had a lot of homework to do but it was working perfectly fine then. And once I finished I put it to sleep and left it alone for a couple of hours. Then I come back to do something on it and the power light never really turned off. Usually when I put it to sleep it flashes and then eventually just stops and turns off. But this time it never shut off. I held the power button and not even that worked..so I took out the battery and charger and it finally turned off. Then I tried to turn it on and it wouldn't. So I took out the battery and held the power button for 30 seconds but that didn't work either. This has never happened to me before, and I've had this laptop since 2012..and I don't feel like taking it to like the place I got it from because I'm pretty sure the warranty is expired and I just don't have the money to get it fixed, or even to get a new laptop..but the weird thing is that there are some lights on my laptop that still show, and the light in my charger is on..its just my laptop that won't turn on!

This has probably been done before but I thought I'd ask.And i've been all over google for answers and tried all sorts.  The problem still remains. The laptop is running 64 bit windows 7.  I've had it a year, and all of a sudden, this happens.  Same charger, runs off the mains, reinstalled Lenovo's energy management software and am now running a battery gauge reset - but the battery is still not charging and is showing 7%. Any clues?TIA

A:B570 laptop. "Plugged in, not charging"

Update. I'm running the Energy Management utility and it is telling me that I have an illegal battery.And this can't be right because it came with the laptop and it says "Lenovo" on it.And it worked up until yesterday.

Good Afternoon,

I have been working on and searching for solutions to my issue for the better part of a week. I have found nothing that is exactly the same, and any solution that I have come upon has not fixed the issue.

A little history:

A friend of mine asked me to look at their computer as she had an issue with printing, and then did some sort of restore installation, lost wireless, and then her computer BSOD, shut down and would hang at starting windows with a reboot loop.

I used chkdsk and SFC to check things, and ultimately used 'load last working configuration' to get the computer to boot.

So far, so good. At least I got back in.

I have been trying to get the wireless to reconnect since then. A wired connection does work.

From the event logs, I can see that there are two errors that crop up on each boot. The first is that Extensible Authentication Protocol service terminated with the following error: The system cannot find the file specified.
The second is that The WLAN AutoConfig service depends on the Extensible Authentication Protoco which failed to start.

The error for WLAN if I try to start it from the services.msc program is 1068, and the error if I try to start EAP is error 2.

I am at wits end. I have found that eapsvc.dll is present (and I actually replaced it from the install disc) in windows/system32, so that SHOULD be OK, I believe svchost.exe is OK, because it is present in windows/system32 and I get no specific errors related to it.

A:No Wireless on laptop computer err 1068, EAP refuses to start err 2

Last evening, I tossed in a Live CD of Ubuntu to see if the wireless worked if I took Windows out of the picture, basically testing the hardware, and the wireless connected without a hitch, so I have to assume that the hardware is fine.

I believe I have this listed in my profile, but the computer is a 4 month old Dell M2800 with an intel 7260 wireless card. I have the latest proset drivers installed from Dell, the wireless card shows up in the Device manager without issues (except the red X that shows it as disconnected) and it also showed up when I ran ipconfig /all, so there is something connecting to it.

Additionally, the intel proset driver troubleshooting shows a hardware fault and states something to the effect that the Wireless Adapter is not bound to the Transport Protocol.

Hello. We have some of the 840 G3 laptops that will not start Bit locker nor will they encrypt the hard drives after we install our Encryption software which is Sophos. Previous G3 laptops have not had this issue. We install Windows 10 from the OEM discs that come with the laptops then we image them with our image. We have tried uninstalling and re-installing the OS. If we install the OEM Windows 7, we have no issues with the drives encrypting or bit locker starting. Is there something different with the BIOS that has changed in the last 3-4 weeks? Thank you.

I have started the BiTlocker on my Windows 10 Pro DELL LT computer (without a TPM support) and it worked very good about 10 days,
It asked my BiTlocker password at startup, then getup my OS Win10 PRO and etc...

After about 10 days I have startup my LT and amazed to fined out that the BITLocker screen is appears but with no place to put any password, it was like a blanked screen, and I could only to get it shut...

At the beginning I was sure that my LT is gone, but then I have stocked my USB drive that contains the TXT file with the encryption code that I have made during my first Bitlocker installation. only then I reboot my LT computer and
my windows came back.

Since than I can get to my windows up only with my USB drive stacked into LT USB port.

I panicked and immediately turned off my Bitlocker option completely.

I want to install it back to get my drive encrypted but I'm afraid it will need the USB when it will not be with me...

I thought that the USB option is for using only when somebody was forgot the password... 

I really need an argent answer,

This is what I have tried so far using information of the follwing post. https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/b763ba63-0cf4-48e2-b69d-5235271902ca/security-center-service-is-turned-off-error-1068?forum=itprovistasecurityCommand Promptsc start DCOMLaunch

sc start wscsvcThis is what I get spit back to me:sc start DCOMLaunchAn instance of the service is already running.sc start RPcSsAn instance of the service is already running.sc config Winmgmt start= autoChangeServiceConfig SUCCESSsc start WinmgmtStartService FAILED 1053:The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.sc config Wscsvc start= autoChangeServiceConfig SUCCESS

What do I do from here? Is this the root of the problems I'm having? Any information is helpful.

I'm getting ready to buy an external USB hardrive to add cap. But in reading various literature, there is a BIG speed diff between Type 1.1 and 20., I am trying to determine the IBM 1400 Thinkpads USB 'type' but havent been able to find out. I've been the the IBM support page and done internal diags on my laptop but no result.

Any suggestions ??? (i'm probably overlooking something simple, but it hasnt slapped me in the face yet...)

Thanks !!!

I recently bought an IP 520 i7 7 gen 15.6" machine. It comes with a type c port. I want to know if I can plug in a type c to vga adapter and use another monitor on my laptop. I bought an adapter from Amazon and I tried plugging it into the c socket but that does not work. However, when I tried the same adapter on my sister's Mac , it works just fine. Now my question is, Is the c port just for charging and does not have I/o pins , or my USB c is damaged ?

Does my USB type C port support HDMI? My monitor works when I plug direct into the HDMI plug on my laptop. But when I plug my multi-adapter JCA374 hub into the USB type 3 port, it seems to only support ethernet and USB. No HDMI signal comes out of the adaptor.Thanks,Ken

Hi, i need help with my internet.My ISP provided me with an internet cable,no modem,just a cable and ipv4 settings would give me internet access on my PC.So, i bought a TP-Link WR-740N wireless router and got it setup.Now i access Internet on my laptop using WiFi.I do a lot of gaming on my laptop.I recently bought Call of Duty Black Ops 3.The game runs fine but it takes some time to connect to a multiplayer session.I read that the NAT type should be open to get a good gaming experience and join games quickly.My NAT is Moderate now and i really wanted to change it to open.In game settings it shows that I need to use UPnP or forward port 3074 UDP.I have tried several ways to port forward the particular port but it is of no use.Can someone here please tell me how can i get an Open NAT type.
These are all the things that i tried.
1.Login to my router and forward ports and enable UPnP.
2.Go to Network Infrastructure and Select my device and add a Port.
Also if My ISP blocks that particular ports,is there any way that i can open them?
Thanks in Advance.

Great Forums and folks. Thanks for all the previous help.
Sr. citizen now, very, and this is the last thing I need.
Sure doesn't inspire any confidence in our Gov't if they can't prevent this kind of thing.
But, i guess, I have lots of company with this.

Anyway, my PC became infected with this CTB-Locker trojan or virus.
I do use avast and Malware Bytes, but neither apparently stopped it.

So, please, what do I do now ?

Is there some program that I can buy (other than paying these horrible people) that would remove, and even more important, allow me to get at all of my WORD and Excel files, pix, eMails, etc ?

I guess there are three parts to the software i want:

Prevent any new occurrences of
Remove it from my PC, now
And, be able to get at all of my old files.

Read about Spyhunter. will it do ALL of these things ?

Is there a better program to get ?

Any and all thoughts on this would be most appreciated.

BTW: a. I just ordered a new "Smart" TV. Any chance of the software here becoming infected also ?
The TV will only be talking to my Router.

b. And, I have started using an Apple iPad for my eMails and Google searches, etc.
Any chance of this getting corrupted too, or are Apple products, somehow immune ?


A:CTB-Locker Problem. Help please From Sr. Citizen


My PC just became infected with this CTB-Locker virus.
Old PC, and might just dump it.

If I get an Apple PC, would it be able to read my (backed up to another external HD, thank goodness) my backed up
WORD and Excel files ?

I read about "Emulators". What do they do ? Do they work, etc. ?

How come Apple products are, apparently not infected with this ? Are they immune somehow ?

BTW: Using an iPad now for eMails and Google searches, etc.
Any chance of using it for this might corrupt the iPad too ?

Thanks, appreciate the help.

I'm thinking about buying the E5-575G-53VG. I have a monitior that only accepts DisplayPort as an input. The monitor in question is a G-Sync monitor (AOC G2460PG). I'm not expecting to use G-Sync with this laptop, but I want to be able to use the external monitor anyway. My question is, can I use the USB Type C port for this purpose? Some USB Type C ports are Thunderbolt 3 which is DisplayPort compatible. Is this one of those ports? Thanks.

I just posted this on another site but I think this site has more activity, so:
Hey everyone. The internet I use at work requires a proxy to use (I connect to the network, which is unpassworded, and then go to my proxy settings and configure the IP and Port for the proxy server, and I use that same one for all protocols). After setting it up with the proxy I've been told, the internet works. However, I obtained a free-to-use proxy (IPORT style, from the internet), and after verifying that it works at home (set it up, internet works), if I try to use that same free-to-use proxy at work, the internet's a no-go.
Any ideas?
thanks in advance

Does the USB Type-C ports on the Thinkpad P70 support powering the computer? I have this Kensington SD4600P USB-C? Universal Dock with Power support but it doesn't power the computer or charge the battery.

The port supplies power to devices.  Not the other way.  USB has 5V.  You need 20V.
