During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer Advanced Boot Options screen appears.

Select the Safe Mode option using the up and down arrow keys, then press the ENTER key. Choose "Windows XP Home/Professional", depending on the version of the operating system.

Press ENTER. Shortly, the welcome screen should show.
Log in as "Administrator". Click Yes to not use System Restore Mode.


Click the Start button. Choose Run and type in "control user passwords" (without the quotes). Click OK.


Select the "Administrator" user. Click Change my password. Enter a new password in the corresponding text boxes. Click OK. Write this password down and store it in a secure place Close the User Accounts window and restart Windows.
hope this helps you

I want to install windows XP in an older laptop that currently has Mellenium, what steps do I take? Originally had Win 98


If you are trying to upgrade just insert the XP cd while you are at the ME deskyop and follow the instructions. You will get two options Upgrade or install a fresh copy you will be prompted to restart and the XP ce will boot (if it a bootable CD) from startup this process is designed to re-format your hard drive in install a new copy of the OS. I hope this works for you.

I have just got a new computer. A Gateway PC running Windows 7/ 64 bit. After installation of ONE I get a dialog box stating " cannot execute machnm1.exe - What can I do to complete the installation?...


Hi,
I'm not familiar with ONE, and am assuming it's a software program.
Try running 7 in XP Mode for proper emulation of the program in question in a 64 bit environment when BIOS requests Machnm32.sys which is probably the culprit (Machnm64.sys in 64 bit environments). Both should be present. This should allow you to continue as many older softwares will not function properly in the 7 environment but, 7 has many built in features to allow for this. Your program may not have the proper drivers to operate in a 64 bit system/chipset.

Have problem with windows Xp pro.


You can get the correct drivers from the Gateway website. Use another computer and download all the Windows XP files for that model number from the website. You need your model number of your pc. Get the files for your motherboard, video, sound card, network card, etc. save them to a usb key or a burn them to a cd. Take the usb key/cd to the other system and load the drivers.

This will get your system back up and running in now time.

I hope this helps you.

Computer password


When your computer starts up, push the right "F" button (for me it is F12) and navigate until you find the start up mode called "Safe Mode". You can't do much here but it can delete administrator passwords. Go to control panel and user options, click the user and click remove password. It should work, I just forget how to enter Safe Mode. It took me about 5 reboots to find it.

  1. Reboot Windows in Safe Mode. To access Safe Mode, Click Start -> Shutdown (or Turn Off), and choose 'Restart'. Once the computer restarts, press F8 repeatedly on the keyboard until a Boot Menu appear (this *must* be done before the Windows boot screen appears). Finally, choose to boot Windows in Safe Mode and press Enter on the keyboard.
  2. Click Start, and then click Run.
  3. In the Open box, type the following command, and then click OK: control userpasswords2
  4. Click the user account that you forgot the password for, and then click Reset Password.
  5. Type a new password in both the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and then click OK.
