    i dont think you get it i want this off my computer. i think your talking about that part when your computer starts up that you see a screen and it says toshiba, song, or dell. well its something more of a password that is on my computer that doesn't need to be on my computer i have to type in the password before i can start up my computer or even get into it. and so i was wanting to get rid of it. its annoying and its almost like a spam thing.

Dear Augustbmc
Mr. Knotbeerdan knows exactly what he is talking about. Whe you start your computer that password is called the BIOS or CMOS password. If you want to clear it our completely then look on your mothernard and find the battery. It looks like a watch battery. Take it out and wait five minutes, then put it back in. This will clear your CMOS and you will not have the password any longer.

You have to enter bios and change the password opion. This password you are talking about is a power on or a boot password. Its a good thing you know this password at least. If you didn't your computer would be next to worthless. to figure out how to enter bios check out my tips and tricks by clicking on the link below

    The password you see can be disabled if you go into bios you can turn the password off. At least i think that is the password you are talking about. The part that is throwing me is that you have to let it warm up then put in your real password.

When istart the computer cant log in ,eventhough my user name and password is correct


A log-on loop on your Windows XP computer is a difficult situation where the computer never completes its boot cycle, restarting intermittently ad nauseam.


This issue indicates a major problem with the boot functionality of your XP system.

Restore the computer to working order by utilizing the repair and restoration utility on your XP system disk.

Insert the XP disk into the computer.


Restart the computer.

Press any key when prompted to boot from the disk.

Press "Enter" at the first screen and "F8" at the license terms.


Highlight the drive containing XP and press "R," repairing the operating system boot files and removing the log-on loop.

or

Windows XP sometimes has a glitch when you are logging in to your user account in order to boot the operating system.

The glitch logs you in and then logs you off the account.


This problem is usually caused by one of the programs that load during the computer's start-up.

Fixing this issue is a matter of ensuring that whatever program is causing the problem doesn't start up as soon as you start your computer.

or


Power on the computer and allow it to get to the user logon page normally.

There is no need to start up the computer in "safe mode."


Click the user who is having the issue and type in the user's password if one is set up.

Press and hold the "shift" button on your computer keyboard as soon as you see the tool bar load up at the bottom of the screen but before any other program has a chance to do so.


This stops any "Startup" program from running and logging you off.


Right-click the "Start" button on the bottom left of your screen.


Select "Explore" from the menu that appears.


Double-click "Programs" from the list on the left side of the window that pops up.


Double-click "Startup."


Select all the files inside the "Startup" folder by dragging a box over them.


Right-click anywhere on the selected files.


Select "Delete" to delete those files.


Note that deleting the programs from the "Startup" folder does not delete them from your computer.


All this does is make it so that these programs no longer start as your computer is starting so that any error in the running of the programs doesn't interfere with logging in to your account.


Hope this helps

I am unable to recover my computer because it keeps asking for disc 1 which is corrupt, how can i get it to use the recovery from the hard drive when i use f10?


Hi ,

Let me tell you the steps to initiate the recovery from the hard drive.Turn the computer off and then disconnect any external devices connected to the computer like printer,usb storage devices and also the cable for the internet .Once that is done please do remember that as soon as you turn the computer off and then as soon as you release the power button after pressing it start tapping the f10 key without stopping until you get a blank screen that says system recovery.Follow the on screen instruction and then when you reach the page that says advance option click on it and then select destructive recovery and then click next.Recovery will start on its own and wait for it to reach 100% then it prompts you to restart the computer adn then when it comes back follow the onscreen instruction for the basic setup like selecting the the country time zome etc and then will take you to the desktop.
If the recovery does not work from the partiotion then you need to run it from the disc so please call up computer surgeons who deal with selling the recovery disks and the number is 1800-496-6127...

all the best ...

COMPUTER GOES TO COPYRIGHT PAGE NOT WINDOWS


Push F8 before the splash screen loads - start pushing it the moment you start your computer. You should get a screen that allows you to start in safe mode. Once you've started in safe mode, try rebooting and see if you computer comes up normally.
