The lid of the laptop is often opened and closed. If you accidentally operate, some components of the lid may loosen,and there may be problems such as cracks between the screen and the frame. In order to avoid the case of a laptop computer is loosened, so it should be slowly opened and closed after use. Do not make large movements, otherwise it may cause physical damage to the PC cover.

Laptop Cover materials:

Notebook Cover materials are aluminum-magnesium alloy, titanium alloy, ABS engineering plastic, carbon fiber, etc.

Many computers are use ABS plastics.According to current, more than 70% of the low-cost notebooks are mainly used it to make shells. The quality of this material is not easy to break. It has excellent heat resistance, easy processing characteristics of ABS plastics, and is cheap. But it is not very thermally conductive, so the heat dissipation will be worse.

The main component of aluminum-magnesium alloy is metal magnesium. Generally speaking, its hardness is several times that of ABS, but its weight is less than half that of ABS plastic, and its heat dissipation ability is very good. This kind of shell can make the computer look more fashionable and convenient for coloring. Generally,it is used to spray colors on the material to change the color. Therefore, it is the first material choice of portable notebooks.

The carbon fiber material has both good quality and good-looking characteristics, as well as very good plasticity. It looks like plastic on the surface, but it has better hardness and thermal conductivity than plastic. And it can play a metal-like shielding role, and it is necessary to apply an insulating layer on the shell and its cost is higher.


The titanium alloy material combines all the advantages. In addition to the metal, it also incorporates carbon fiber. It is better than aluminum-magnesium alloy in terms of heat dissipation,hardness, or appearance. And it is easier to process, and the appearance is more diverse. The most important advantage of titanium alloy is that the toughness becomes better and it can become thinner. But It is very troublesome to process, which means that the cost will be high.

After entering your password in the Windows 10 login window, you will see a small eye icon on the right side of the password box. Click the eye icon, which will display the password you just typed. If the password is correct and the windows 10 keeps saying incorrect password, it is likely that you forgot your password.


2. Check the keyboard layout is correct

Be sure to choose the correct keyboard layout to type your password. In the lower right corner of the Windows 10 login screen, there is a language button (such as ENG). Click here and you will be able to change your keyboard layout.


You may have enabled NumLock, try entering your password using the on-screen keyboard or tapping the NumLock button to toggle the status.

Press the "FN +NumLock" numeric keypad switch button (on a 14-inch laptop, NumLock is often on the same button as F6, F8, Insert, etc.). If the Number keypad is turned off, try to re-enter the password to login.

3. Using the on-screen keyboard

Microsoft won't recognize my password. I found that the lowercase letters that were typed automatically were converted to uppercase letters, and the numbers and special characters can't type. This may have started after Windows update. This may be due to a keyboard error.


Using the on-screen keyboard, you can activate it with the easy access icon on the login screen. Click Easy Access > On-Screen Keyboard and use the mouse to click on the character to enter the correct password.

4. Login with your Microsoft account password

If you have been using a Microsoft account to login, you will need to enter the password for Microsoft account instead of the local account password.There are three ways to login to windows 10, Microsoft account passwords, pin codes and biometrics. Please confirm that the login method you selected is correct.

5. Reset your Microsoft account password

If you have forgotten your Windows 10 password, the easiest way is to reset your Microsoft account password by logging back to your account. You need to find a device with Internet access, log in to your Microsoft account, modify and access services like Outlook and Skype. After changing your password, try entering a new password in the login window of your PC. You should be able to access the account without any trouble.

Therefore, you must carefully identify the size and performance of the display when purchasing.

1.3 Display performance

First of all, pay attention to whether the display surface has obvious scratches;

Then, observe whether the maximum brightness, contrast and color temperature of the notebook screen are normal;

Finally, carefully check the screen for dead pixels and highlights with pure white and

Most of the hard drives in refurbished notebooks have been used for a long time, so the actual performance of the hard drives is very important. There is a small tool that can be used to detect hard drive usage: HD Tune. Then, use HD Tune to check the power-on cycle of the hard disk. This also allows you to intuitively understand the actual usage time of the notebook and have some understanding of the life of the hard disk.

4. Check other hardware: laptop keyboard, usb port, optical drive, mouse, speaker, etc.

The keyboard, each key must be tapped to confirm can type characters, and feel comfortable. All USB should be plugged to test and device can be identified; if there is an optical drive to try to read the CD-ROM. To adjust the volume to the highest, to see if there is popping, noise and so on.


5. Get the warranty for refurbished notebooks

In general, second-hand laptops are not comparable to new products in terms of performance or warranty and after-sales services. Moreover, refurbished computers generally do not provide an after-sales warranty.
