How do i reset my windows xp password if i have forgotten it


Forgot Windows XP password? The first thing which you check is whether you forgot windows xp login password or not. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forgot your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you See Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys Twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.
Windows XP and further versions also provide another method to recover forgotten Password by using "Reset Disk". If you created a Password Reset Disk in past, you can use that disk to reset the password. Or try free program called Ophcrack or Windows Password Recovery Tool 3.0.

Msconfig won't work


If youre running windows 2000, it doesnt come with msconfig. For a missing msconfig in XP, download it from the internet, copy it to the C:/WINNT/SYSTEM32 folder. The version that works for windows 2000 will work for XP. DONT USE the 95, 98, ME version on 2000 or XP.

Install Xp From Dos


If XP will not install from the CD or if you have a new drive with no operating system onit yet try these:

Install Windows XP from the hard drive with Windows 98 already installed:

Boot Windows 98
Insert the XP CD into your CD reader
Explore Windows XP through My Computer
Copy i386 folder to C:\
Go into C:\i386 folder and double click on winnt32.exe to launch the setup from the hard drive

Install Windows XP from DOS (ie. no OS on a new hard drive):

Boot with a Windows 98 Start Up disk
Insert the Windows 98 CD into the CD reader
Run smartdrv.exe from the Win98 directory on the windows 98 CD (file caching)
Type cd.. to back up to the root directory
Insert Windows XP CD into the CD reader
Copy the i386 folder to C:\
Go into C:\i386 folder on C: and type winnt.exe to launch the setup from the hard drive.

I have vista and the lego creator won't load. Is there something I can do to get it loaded.


I had a customer with a similar error in vista a few weeks ago

Here's how I solved the problem.

Firstly make sure you have the lates drivers installed for you graphica card

Secondly make sure you have the latest version of direct x installed, available for free here

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3&displaylang=en

Uninstall the game, install the updates above, Re-install the game.

Make sure you have a shortcut on your desktop or you know where the game installs to.

Find the shortcut for the game or the main exe file.

Right click it, then left click properties

You should have a lottle window in front of you.
Look at the tabs that run accross the top. Find the one that says compatibility.

Then go down and check the box beside Run this program in compatibility mode for:
Highlight Windows XP (Service Pack 2) click apply and then ok

Run the game and it should be ok.
If not follow the above steps but nstead of windows XP select windows 98

Hope that helps

Windows 98 is not opening


You need to re-install Windows 98, and this time, you should do it on a separate hard disk partition.
