Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
I have a toshiba satellite pro 4300 series notebook and just after i boot up it asks me for a password.i think its the bios password because still after pressing F2 for boot menu,same thing happens. please advice on steps to bypass this or any other solutions.
Assuming your computer is asking for a BIOS password and not a hard drive password - What you need is a little parallel port password key device that you can buy (eBay, etc.) or make on your own (schematics and wiring diagrams are available for free on the Internet): plug in the device into your laptop's parallel port, power it on, and the BIOS password is automatically gone. That's it.
This is the procedure for a desktop and I'm sure it will work for a laptop. Your CMOS holds the password in memory and this memory is backed up by a battery. Remove this battery, wait a minute or so and re-fit the battery. The password is gone. To save a lot of typing, have a read of this post [http://murfsgarage.cybertechhelp.com/cmos.htm ]

First I had this problem on my old Dell Pentium II computer. It would keep saying ''network connection unplugged''.At first I could plug and unplug and get it back. Eventually nothing.

I got the router going with it and had no problems. Thinking it couldn't hurt, I plugged my Dell into the router, an
