You have Number Lock set on your PC - Have a look for a key top right hand side, it will have something like NumLck written on the KEY - you may need to use that Key in combination with the FN key - bottom left of keyboard - there should be a light somewhere on the keyboard which goes on/off as you toggle the NumLck key. You should see different coloured numbers on the key s*()UIOPJKLM These are the numbers and symbols that will be displayed when the NumLock is used

If the loud clicking noise is coming from the Laptop itself and not from the speaker, then it surely is a faulty hard drive. Try replacing it. Your alptop model will accept the IDE hard drives, just FYI.

If the optical drive On/Off utility icon says OFF you cannot open the drive. You will have to turn it ON.
Point to the icon with the mouse cursor and right click. You will have the option to turn power to drive ON. Verify it by pressing Fn-TAB.

After the update the laptop will boot from a USB Cd/DVD drive.
be patient the first part of the up date goes extreamly slowly but it seems to keep working and the install will work.

If you want the fast way, then probably you have to rely on a third-party software. Take a try this password recovery software, it should help clear and reset the lost password and bypass the locked computer.

Note: you can do this on your own, no need to send the PC to anybody for any repair because it's dangerous for your private information stored on the computer, best regards.

If you have the original OS disks, you can boot to the CD drive and install a fresh copy of Windows XP. One of the steps will ask you if you want to keep the existing Operating system. If you decline and install the OS the next step will ask if you want to format using NTFS. This step will format the drive and then reinstall the OS.

I hope this is what you were looking for. Thanks for using FixYa.

There is no factory settings for windows. You can restore the system to it`s old position from "system recovery"

First, give the screen a good cleaning using a microfiber cloth. This may inadvertently remove the lines even though they are in the display.

If this doesn't work, you'll have to send the laptop back for repairs. Screens are not a component that can be replaced easily (such as RAM or a hard drive).

If your laptop is not under warranty, scope out some local computer shops that can replace the display for you. Make sure to ask them for a quote BEFORE they do work on your computer, otherwise they have the right to deny you your laptop, once they fix it, until you pay up (a possibly very nasty price).
