Tips and Tricks for Tamil Nadu Government Laptops [HCL, Lenovo and Hasee]

Are you an engineering student of Tamil Nadu Government and Govt. aided Colleges? If Yes! you are lucky to get a free Laptop at your Pre-final year or Final Year. Luckily I have also got one free TN government Laptop (Lenovo brand). It might come in HCL, Lenovo and recently they started providing Hasee (china made laptops). 🙁  Anyhow, get free laptop is awesome right! As it is a part of current Government party’s new marketing strategy, they made chief minister’s image on all over the laptop screen, over the lid, on laptop bag and so on. Also, I forgot to say that you won’t be having Wifi or Bluetooth on your Tamil Nadu Government laptops. So, here I offer free tips to disable boot image while booting your Laptop. And, finding best Marketplace for Wifi Dongle and Bluetooth device.

Disabling Boot image on Government Laptops [HCL, Lenovo and Hasee]

While switching on your Government Laptop, probably the most annoying thing we could find is our Chief minister’s image with Tamil Nadu Government emblem. It creates a cheap imitation on our laptop, that too while using them on public places.

The most frequent query related to Government laptops is just, “how to remove government logo from hcl laptop? or Lenovo/Hasee. So,here I found a solution to remove this Boot Image (BIOS Splash screen) loading in BIOS. So, its time to peek into your system BIOS settings. So, once you switch on Power Button, and click F2 to get into BIOS setup. This F2 key for BIOS setup may alter for chinese laptops. If it is so, mention me via our commenting system below. Okay! now you will be in your system BIOS. There you click on Boot tab on the Top Menu section to open Boot configuration. You will look like this:

Tips and Tricks for Tamilnadu Government Laptop: Avoiding Boot image (BIOS Splash Screen)

Here you can see Fast Boot [Disabled]. Click on it and choose Enable. Then its over, just tap esc key on your keyboard to save and exit your BIOS screen. Now, Restart your Laptop you can’t see the old BIOS Boot image and booted directly to your OS. It will also speed-up your system Booting speed. Enjoy! This technique is same for all Government Laptops. If you are looking this laptop for Photoshop, sorry!

Wi-Fi Dongle for TN Govt. Laptops:

Tamil Nadu Government Laptops comes with no Wifi and Bluetooth, but you can buy separate WiFi dongles and attach to your PC via USB pin. Leoxsys LEO-NANO150N USB Adapter, is the best choice of mine and its available in Flipkart. Have a look at here:


    • it works fine from my side, but I forgot to mention that after enabling fast boot click “f10” key to save and reset. And then, your Boot BIOS Splash screen will be disabled. Please let me know after trying this 🙂

          Dear friend,

          I think u uninstall the VGA drivers or it may be corrupted. Don’t worry buddy. U just uninstall VGA drivers properly from control panel first. And then re install it. Finally set the pixel size 1366×768 then restart the system.

          Just try it….

    I enabled fast boot successfully !! I want to boot new OS in my laptop. But the problem is I cant access BIOS setup 🙁 please give me solution for this problem.

    • Once you insert the OS disk, restart your PC and try all function keys. It will reach you to enter into BIOS setup. There choose primary boot option as DVD or disk. And continue to install new OS. All the best 😀

  12. sethu says:

    Am student, I got free laptop from tamilnadu government, but unfortunately it lost. is there any way find it. Thx

    • Oh! I feel sorry for you Sethu. Unfortunately, there are some good prevention techniques but once lost, being practical there’s no chance to track your laptop. Least, you can file a police complaint, that too 99% won’t workout.

      Any geeks out there! if you have any idea, Please share here regarding this issue.

    I am having a HCL laptop same as shown in your artical.
    I am not able to boot up as the keyboard of the laptop is not working.
    Sometimes it works with a USB laptop but most of the time it does not start (boot) because of keyboard not present. Is there a way to bypass this keyboard check and start the laptop.
    Thanks in advance.
