need help love you tube music please help me forgot password

Open a command prompt after your PC reboots and resumes setup.
- In Windows 2000, wait until the PC begins registering components and then press the "Shift + F10" keys simultaneously.
- In Windows XP, watch the bottom left-hand side of your screen until you see a progress bar that reads "Installing devices" and then press the "Shift" and "F10" keys together. This will open a terminal window.

or you can use the window CD,this modify the BIOS in the BOOT

God bless you

my laptop starts and lets me log in to my account then all i get is a blank white screen

Just after you type in your password and before you hut the return key, hold down the shift key, and keep it held until you come up to the desktop. Then examine your startup items (System Preferences / Accounts) and remove whichever one is likely to be hanging your login. If it's not obvious, remove any non-Apple entry and then put them back one by one until you hang again on login; then don't use that one anymore.
