Support PCs Q&A Index
Welcome to the Support PCs Q&A Database. This fully searchable archive contains questions I've answered over the past six years for a number of magazines, including PC Answers, Microsoft Windows Vista Magazine and Microsoft Windows XP Magazine (both UK and Australian editions).

I've built up a collection of around 1,000 questions and it's still growing. Over time I aim to add all of these to the database, so keep checking back. You can browse the list below - click a category header to filter the results, and click a question title to read the answer. If you're looking for more specific advice, use the Google custom search box above, which enables you to search the full site quickly and easily.

Nick Peers.

Password request on bootup - Hardware

When setting up my new Toshiba Equium A200-196 laptop for the first time I appear to have inadvertently created a password, which has to be entered every time I switch it on. I donít need or want this, but cannot get rid of it. Itís the same password I use for my internet, so this might explain how it got on to my PC. There is no sensitive data on the laptop, but in the event I was ill Iím worried no one could legitimately get on to my laptop rendering it useless. Have you any advice?
