Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
How do I unlock my computer? Apparently I hit the lock button by accident
\015 I own a Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop. For the 2nd time in the past 6 months, I receive a notice that my laptop is locked and I need to type in my password after the screensaver has finished running thru photos I uploaded.\015\012\015\012I don't know why this happens and I can't find information as to how I unlock my computer. I know I have the lock button, but I should think I can just as easily unlock my laptop.\015\012\015\012Sharon\015
