Hello my asus netbook PC turns on it comes up with the asus home screen but then it goes black when it's supposed to let me log in


The first thing to do is to try to boot up in safe mode. You have to search google for how to enter safe mode for your particular laptop (it usually is pressing a particular key while it is starting up).

You will probably find that it starts OK in safe mode, then you will have to start disabling drivers etc until you find what was the problem so it will work in normal mode.

This is the most common way of fixing this problem.

Black screen.


To get into the Windows XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to " Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)" and press your Enter key. This should load windows and operate normally. If it doesn't then reboot & press F8 again then select "safe mode". In safe mode, Windows XP starts a minimal set of drivers that the operating system needs to function. Support for devices such as audio devices and most USB devices are disabled to reduce the variables that you need to account for when diagnosing the cause of startup problems, Stop messages, or system instability. If recently installed hardware or software prevents you from starting Windows XP in normal mode, you can use safe mode to uninstall software, or to remove or roll back device drivers. Let us know how you get on - Good Luck!

Need XP Professional password for Dell Latitude D600


Assuming Windows XP.

Boot into safe mode. Do so by pressing 'F8' a few times just as the computer begins to boot up (right before the Windows screen)

Once in safe mode, click on administrator (or type it in as the username if it doesn't come up with the welcome screen). It shouldn't, by default, have a password if it is XP Home.

Once logged in as administrator, go to control panel and users and change the password on the account you want or create a new one.
