Having problems with your Gateway PC Desktops ?

Computer locked and I have never locked it.

\015 My emachines T6528 tells me that my computer is locked and can only be opened by an administrator and needs a password. I don't know how this came about. It just started and I have had this computer for at least 2 years. If I select OK without putting in a password then I can go online but it keeps coming back.\015

Answers :

Go to Control Panel -> Power Options. On one of the tabs presented in this dialog there is a setting to require a password on wakeup. Just clear that checkmark and apply the settings and you should be set. I run XP in a virtual machine, so this option does not appear for me otherwise I would tell you exactly what tab it is located on.

I tried switching batteries too and same problem.
