    Thanks for that helpful tips. I did what you said. I log as administrator then enter but the Logon Message appeared, it says, "Unable to log you because of an account restriction".



    Whenever I go to SAFE MODE there's a message box in the screen that says, "Not Optimum Mode" Recommended Mode: 1280 x 1024 60Hz"

This only works if your account isn't already the "Administrator" account. It will work if your account is just an account with administrator rights.
Boot into Safe Mode, log in as Administrator, change your password:
1) Turn off your computer.
2) Turn it back on while repeatedly tapping the "F8" key.
3) Use your arrow keys to select the option to boot to Safe Mode and press Enter.
4) In Safe Mode, log in as the Administrator
5) Open the Control Panel
6) Go to User Accounts
7) Click on your account
8) Click on "Change the password"

    You should be able to continue all the same. safe mode is xp without drivers so everything is big and you wont have sound. however you should still be able to follow the instructions i gave.

Notebook only goes to f2 or f12 wont boot


If you can't get passed the F2, F12 then maybe the keys are disabled.. Windows does this sometimes. To release just hit "F".. if that doesn't do the trick then probably drive is corrupt..
You will need to restore using restore disc if you have one.
