  1. Locked Out!


    Hello,Last week, when we were moving my laptop bag, was misplaced. I locked my laptop remotely from my phone, and then we found the bag shoved in a random box hours later!!My laptop is still locked as I've been unable to use the fingerprint scan feature, and it will only accept my PIN. I don't remember setting up a PIN just the fingerprint sign-in option.PLEASE HELP!I'd love to be able to use my device again.Not sure why it's been such a difficult process, if I can lock it from my phone, why isn't it as easy to unlock it?~Virginia

    :)

  2. PC Build Steps

    Ok just because I like steps i am going to create some steps. Please give me the stamp of approval/disapproval
    • Install system in case
      • Remember to connect SSD and optical to same SATA ports on motherboard
    • Turn on PC
    • setup HDD
    • run blend test in prime95 for 30-60 min
      • run realtemp at the same time
    • While in Prime95 test
      • if CPU goes above 70c in RealTemp, I have a leaky CPU
      • if my system locks up or blue screens, there is an instability in the system somewhere
      • if my system does not lock up or blue screen, my CPU is not damaged and I am in the clear!
    What do you guys think??
