Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
Ok we finally get the model
"Cq61 420us" made 2009, not too old.
I cant see your screen to be sure where it is locked. this PC has UEFI technology
and as such and turned on , only HP can unlock this device.
the exact message seen is not stated
"user lock codes" bios or windows locked?
do you see the windows login screen at all?
now we go to HP, they own COmpaq.100%
HP has a support page
ask HP.com how to reset it.
there is a way, but fixya is NOT HP.Com
sorry, we are not HP.
see others asking there?
did you do the HP long reset first?
battery large out
then line cord off
push power on for 30 seconds
not use just AC power , as the 9 year old battery will be bad, and worse shorted.
leave the huge battery out for now. run on AC>
then tell the helper all words on the screen
all logos. all graphics seen there,
even if the w7 log on screen shows.
then we can proceed.

Believe it or not, the rails will not lock unless the bottom is slightly raised up. Then you can flatten the bottom. Unlocking works the same way, be sure that the bottom is lifted up partially. Hope that helps, I had the same problem.

Never heard of this telescope. You will NOT find a manual. You might try contacting a local astronomy club and have one of the members look at your telescope and help you with it.
