I am in a huge pickle here (too bad I love pickles). The good news first. I am becoming a student at Mohawk College. I have officially been accepted into Broadcasting-Radio there, and if I succeed, my dream of one day playing video game music in my very own station may come to fruition. But here's the bad news. Before September, one of the things I have to do first is to receive a letter of verification of attendance to confirm to, I believe, my city's housing corporation, that I will be attending Mohawk College this September. Here's the big problem. I have no idea how to properly do it, and I need to get that letter printed now. I tried getting back into one the College's websites, Mocomotion, but I've lost my password and worse, I lost my username, and according to the site, I can't change the username, and they won't tell me how or if I can recover it. Worst of all, I can't leave my computer until I get that letter... for... personal reasons... I have reached out to as many people as I can to help me solve this very urgent issue. I'm hoping you guys can be one of them. If you think you can help me, DON'T HESITATE. I need an answer as soon as humanly (or anthropomorphically) possible. Thanks!
Alright, about 2 weeks ago my laptop broke, and my mom is sick of me using the family's computer, and she wants me to fix mine so I don't sit on it all day like a lazy bum. Anyways, so the problem is that I have an older computer (an HP pavilion ze4400) that won't quite boot past the HP logo on boot. It just brings up the logo and all that and says to press Esc. to change boot order, press F2 to enter setup, and tells me to press F12 to boot from LAN. When the screen shows up, I only have a few seconds to press these keys or else it will freeze. When I do press these keys, (even F10, which runs some kind of diagnostic) it will just sit there and say "booting from LAN" or "Entering Setup." But when I press Esc., a screen comes up that says the build time and date, and it has my RAM numbers shooting upwards. Then it just says like Mouse Intialized and whatnot. If you leave it on for a while, the fan will start to get really noisy in it for some reason. Anyways, I was thinking about putting Ubuntu on a flashdrive and seeing if the laptop would boot from that. I haven't tried it yet, but I still wanted to put this out there just in case that wouldn't work. Help is appreciated, I spent a lot of money for my age on this. (Don't ask how much. ) -Hoo
