Biostar motherboard resumes power after shutdown


There is an option called Wake On Lan. Check your BIOS and disable that option. The name may differ, instead of WAN it may say PCI. Take a look.

The second part is the NIC. Look for wake up options. I'm logged in Windows right now and it has that options setting. So does iOS. I imagine so does Ubuntu. I'll check next time I reboot into Ubuntu.

1.Right click on desktop
2.Select properties.
3.Select "ScreenSaver".
4.Select "Power" under Monitor power option.
5.There select "never" from Turn off monitor (drop down menu).

Now your monitor will not turn off automatically.

At start up of computer i have lost my password How do I unlock it


You didn't mention what operating system you are running. I am going to guess you are running a current version of windows.

What you can try is press Control+ALT+Delete two times, and you should get a logon box. WIth any luck you can clear the user name and type in administrator and leave the password blank and try logging in. If you remember setting a administrator password enter it.

If you are able to login you can go to the control panel - users (User accounts in Vista).

If you locate the users section of control panel you can select your account and change password. Or you can create a new account to login with for now.

Hope this helps.

Hi, I have lost the recovery cd for my dell inspiron 710 m


You can attempt to recover the system using the built-in recovery partition (if your system has one). Shut down the computer completely, and restart it with the power button. When the Dell logo appears, try pressing Ctrl-F11 or Alt-F11 at this screen, and if your system has the recovery partition, it should boot to it, and give you instructions on how to restore your system using this method. If this does not work, however, you can request Dell to send you replacement recovery disks for your model of computer by going *here* Just keep in mind Dell may charge for the disks, so if you do need to order them, be prepared to pay a minor fee, by using a credit card on their secured website. (Usually $20-40 USD)

Whatever the circumstances, be forewarned that restoring your system with either of these methods will erase the contents of your hard drive, so be sure to back up your important files that you cannot afford to lose *BEFORE* doing the restore, as you will not be able to get them back without advanced data recovery services, which can get extremely expensive.

Presario desktop windows vista, shuts down unexpectedly


Windows Vista will not install on old computers. If this is your case try installing Windows XP, If this does not work you might want to try Linux (Ubuntu). which will run on almost any old computer with full capabilities.
It is free and you can download it from

Ubuntu Doesn't Shut Down


do sudo gedit /ect/modules

make a new line, and add this code:

then the next time you shut down after this time the computer should be fine.
