Question about Toshiba Satellite M100 Notebook
I get a message that reads, your password has been locked out, please contact your administrator.... i tried everything... logging on safe mode trying to reboot, logging on in dos mode, but i cant get past the windows password screen. tried typing in administrator as a user and no password but that screen comes up no matter what... i dont know what else to do. Please help.....I have Windows XP Pro on a Dell, and I am the sole user now, but I can not bypass the Administrator function, and it will not allow me to save to any external drives.
Stinks that it'll take a day or two for them to help you. Sounds like your account is, indeed, locked or expired. The only way to fix this is to log in as "administrator" and check the permissions on your user account. Kind of tough to do this without the administrator's password though....

If this wont allow you to bypass that password screen, if this computer is still under dell warranty you can contact them and they will be able to provide you the password that you need...
