What I usually do is re-enstall the operating system. Set your BIOS to boot from the CD drive with the first re-boot set your BIOS to boot from the hard drive. If your BIOS allows it you can also boot from a flash drive. What I've been doing for the last decade or so is partition my main hard drive in several partitions, having the windows install (along with all my other software and drivers) on a different partition than the operating system. This way after you reformat your c: drive all your important files are protected and available on another partition and if there no operating system disk or flash drive, you can always install from DOS.

what that error means is that a system 32 file has either become corrupt or removed, many factors can perform this issue, only option you have is to format the hard drive and reinstall windows.

SOURCE: cant remember my pc owner password

ok so what you do is,turn of the pc and turn on, while your pc is starting up when the screen is black and has the flashing bar keep pressing F8 until it askes you if you want it to start up in safe mode, say yes. then when it gets to the log in screen it should say "administrator as one of your users click on it it should not have a password. then you need to go to the start menu>run...>type in "cmd">you should come up with a black box. now type in these exact words "net users", press enter. now type in "net user "put the name of the user you want here WITH the apostrophes" * (make sure to put the star there!) it should ask you to type a ew password for this user, now type what ever you want as the password, press enter. DONT FORGET IT!!! now close the box and restart you computer and use that password you put to log on to the user!!! hope this helps!!! =P

SOURCE: unable to login to laptop due to forgotten login password

First thing you can try is:

1: When booting up the laptop Press F8 until you see a screen show that has an option to boot in "Safe Mode"
2: Once it has finished booting up you can Select Administrator and hopefully there is no password set.
3: If there is no password set then login as Administrator and goto "Control Panel", Select User Accounts and change your daughter's password to something she wont forget ;p

if that fails then you can try this

Offers a program that resets your passwords.

Hope this helped.

Have a dell Vastro1000 laptop, windows xp pro, lost password and cant get to the laptop


You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program.

Starting problem


Immediately after seeing the Dell logo, keep tapping the 'F8' key,
until you see a "menu" (white text over a black background)
giving "startup" options for Windows XP.

Select "Safe Mode" and see if you can start in that mode.
Then, use "System Restore" to go "back" in time, to the most-recent checkpoint (date/time) where your computer _DID_ work.

Restore to that point, and restart.

The computer wont let me open anything i have tried to do a system restore and it says it cant find the software what can i do next?


If you can get in to do a system restore then there is still hope. However this could take a very long time for even an experianced computer technician to fix. Cause is most likely spyware or a virus, OR some anti-spyware programs.
The fastest solution is to reinstall windows with the repair option. If that doesnt work just reinstall windows.

Factory Restore


Hi,

Have you tried using another keyboard? if that doesnt work, try hitting the pause/break button on your keyboard and you should notice that your screen will be stuck on the dell logo with the bar going across, once you notice that hold down ctrl and hit f11. that should work..

Let me know what happens, alright?

COMPUTER CRASHED?


See if you can get to safe mode. Write back to see if you can, and we will give you instructions on how to proceed from there.

Otherwise you will need a restore or winxp OS installation disk.
