Hi,

From my point of view I think the Operating system needs to be Repaired and below is a guide on how to repair

  1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
  2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
    Windows XP to run on your computer:

    To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

    To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

    To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.
  3. Press ENTER to start the Windows Setup. DO NOT choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you DO NOT want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, DO NOT choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
  4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
  5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup. After the reboot read WARNINNG #2
  6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact. After the installation is over the system will reboot.

Enjoy

How to Reset Windows Password with Default Admin Password?


The Windows operating system allows you to assign a password to each user account. This provides privacy to different users on one computer. Each user is allowed to set up his own environment and settings to maintain personal files. The difficultly comes when a computer is not functioning correctly and needs to be put into safe mode, but a password is not available. Creating a disc on Windows permits you to <a href="http://www.passwordunlocker.com/knowledge/6-windows-password-recovery-solutions.html">reset Windows password</a>, get access to your locked computer and replace the forgotten or lost password. <br /> Let us discuss the method of <a href="http://www.passwordunlocker.com/knowledge/windows-password-recovery-tool.html">Windows password recovery</a>, if you have access to any of the account with administrator rights or you have not assigned a password to the account with username administrator. Administrator is the default account created in the Windows when it is installed. This has a blank password by default.<br /> start your system to reset the Windows login password. If classic login dialog box appears, write the user with administrator privilege if you know any of them, type its password and press enter to login. Otherwise, type administrator in place for the username and press Enter. If you are successful to login, open the Start menu and click Control Panel to open it. Open the user account and change the password of the desired account. Restart you system to login your account with the changed password. <br /> If your logon screen is Windows XP style, administrator user will not be shown on the logon screen. You have to boot in Safe Mode. Restart your system and press F8 key to display the boot options. Choose the Safe Mode option and press enter to boot. Windows skips loading many drivers. Administrator account is shown in the logon screen. Click it to login. After the Windows desktop is shown, open the Control Panel from the Start menu. Change the password of your account.<br /> Well, still can not successfully solve your Windows password recovery trouble? You'd better take use of a third party software. As is known that <b><a href="http://www.passwordunlocker.com/windows-password-recovery.html"> Windows Password Unlocker</a></b> is considered to be a professional and appreciated Windows password recovery tool with 100% recovery guarantee and friendly interface. Furthermore, this program can keep all your data and files in security.<br />

Wespro n720 hanging at loading os image how to solve this problem


You don't state the OS but usually it is a damaged system file.
On XP you can try this: Boot computer and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you See Windows welcome screen / login screen. It`ll show classic login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press Enter and you should be able to login Windows. Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts". On Win 7 or Vista: Ctrl+Alt+Delete won`t work, you have to use some windows password recovery software. I recommend Windows Password Reset Deluxe

When it 1st comes on it says enter current password


You can do this without the Mac OS X install DVD, but be advised that doing this will trash any saved passwords in your Mac OS keychain.
  1. Power one your Mac and while the computer is starting, hold down "Command-S" until you see text scrolling through the window. This boots the computer into single user mode.
  2. At the Localhost% prompt type:/sbin/mount -uw /
    /sbin/SystemStarterYou will then see various services starting up.

  3. When the Localhost% prompt reappears, type:passwd USERNAME (where USERNAME is the username you login with)It will then ask you to type the new password twice, so do so.

  4. After entering the new password, type:reboot

My dell inspiron 1525 has a black screen with a white cursor showing


First, I want to know if you sees the Dell logo after turning on the laptop? If yes then this is no boot issue.
1. Immediately run the PSA. Make sure laptop is off. Press and hold down the Fn key, while holding down Fn key press the power button at the same time just once. Once the Dell screen loaded you can now let go of the Fn key. Check if the PSA will run short test for the LCD, RAM and HDD. When full color displays on the screen just press Y. PSA will continue. Just take note of any error code will appear on the screen such as 0141, 0142 and 0146 these are HDD failure errors which means HDD needs replacement. If the test says no errors found then proceed to step 2;
2. Try restarting the laptop once you see dell logo then keep tapping F8. Select last known good configuration. Press enter key. Just wait and check if laptop will load Windows. If not then, restart laptop keep tapping F8 try to select safe mode check if it will load Windows. If not then prepare the Windows OS disc the one came with your laptop.
3. While laptop is on insert the Windows OS disc. Restart the computer. On the Dell screen keep tapping on F12 to show boot menu. In the boot menu select CD/DVD ROM Drive. Press enter then keep tapping on space bar until it will say Windows loading files, please wait.
4. In the User Interface it will show you some options to select. Once the Install screen comes up look on the lower part select Repair Your Computer. If will ask you to do Startup Repair, please do start up repair. If fails try the System Restore. If fails then step 5;
5. If you have important files in your HDD then back up your files first. After backing up of files you can now install the Windows OS. Here is the process in installing the Windows OS. Insert the Windows OS disc, restart the laptop, keep tapping F12 on Dell screen, on boot menu select CD/DVD ROM Drive.Install the Windows OS. Just complete the installation.After the installation install the laptop drivers.

Windows password correct but windows says its wrong


When you clicked switch user Vista should display a list of all the accounts that are on the PC if possible click the switch user button again and see if you have the ability to enter the username for your account, unfortunately unless you're missing something with the process and somehow forgot the password, there is no way to recover the admin password, one other thing to try would be booting into safemode and seeing if you can login with your account.

Password problem


Click Restart at the login window
While the computer is restarting, hold down "Command-S" until you see text scrolling through the window.
This boots the computer into single user mode.

At the Localhost% prompt type:
/sbin/mount -uw //sbin/SystemStarter

You will then see various services starting up.

When the Localhost% prompt reappears, type:
passwd root

It will then ask you to type the new root password twice, so do so.

After entering the new password, type:
reboot

At the login window, enter username root wih the new password.

Once you are connected, you can use the Multiple Users application (/Applications/Utilities) to change your normal user's password, or create a new user account. 


Good Luck!!
