Forgot windows password? Don't worry about it, when I forgot the password, i remove the password by the following steps,
Step1: Download and install Windows Password Recovery Tool Professional.Step2: Burn CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive. (Namely it is to burn aWindows password reset disk.)
Step3: Set the target computer boot from CD/DVD or USB.

It is likely that a replacement battery is required

Your battery may have Battery charge status indicator, when you press the button next to the 4 led indicators the LEDs indicate the charge status.
Also the System Battery/Charge LED indicates the battery's current operational condition.
Flashing orange indicates Battery failure.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

You can change your desktop wallpaper with any photo you have access to on your pc or external device (you just have to copy the photo to your pc) You have 2 options: Going straight to Control pannel then Appearance/Personalization and changing it there or, right click directly on the photo itself and the option should be right in that list of options, though I recommend Control Pannel because there is some display options that are usually required for the photos that may not be big enough or clear enough to be enlarged to your backround

Where it shows about the signal, the Icons bottom right? Right click on it and click troubleshoot. It should check everything out. Where is the wi/fi at? Your house or in public. You may have to type in the numbers on the router. Or turn it off and back on.

There will be panels at the bottom or the side of the laptop. The HD is located there and should just slot out.
