  • Ask an Owner

    Here's a list of the questions other shoppers have asked owners of the G50

    1. Freddie asked on
      Does this have a UK keyboard? My son says the picture attached is the US one.
      1. Anna replied on
        It has the UK keyboard, with the £, $, €, etc.
      2. G. replied on
        THIS IS THE PICTURE

      3. JO replied on
        Yes, there is a question in the initial set up to choose UK or US and i clicked the wrong one.However there is an option to choose UK on the bar at the bottom of the screen, on the right hand side
    2. Vicki asked on
      I haven't used my laptop in a few months and now I can't remember my password even with the hint. How can I over ride it?
      1. Christopher replied on
        I googled and this came up
        What to do if you forget your Windows password
        Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1 More
        If you've forgotten your Windows password, there are several ways to retrieve or reset it:

        If your PC is on a domain, your system administrator must reset your password.

        If you're using a Microsoft account, you can reset your password online. For more info, go to the Reset your password webpage.

        If you're using a local account, use your password hint as a reminder.

        If you've tried these suggestions and still can't sign in:

        If you have Windows 8.1, you'll need to reinstall Windows.

        If you have Windows RT 8.1, you'll need to contact your PC manufacturer.

      2. Harry replied on
        If you can't remember then you need to reset your password.
      3. Keith replied on
        Couple of ideas for you. Obviously you can't reset your password as you have to do that on-line and you can't get on-line. You may have to reinstall windows if running windows 8 BUT, if you had your laptop from Currys/PC world, take it back and speak to the Tech Guys there, they'll be able to help, under warranty or not
