Once you have enabled the password option in your CMOS setup program, your system will prompt you for the password at boot-up, before it gets to the operating system. But what can you do if you forget the password?
At boot-up, Windows 98 checks to see if a floppy drive is present, which adds a few seconds to the process. You can start your system a bit faster by bypassing this drive check.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
