Question about HP Pavilion dv2000t Notebook

1 Answer

I have a desk top Dell Pentium that was loaded with XP professional. When we turn it on it will go to the welcome screen and sometimes to the desktop and then it just quits. The monitor will say that it is in power saving mode. It acts like it has a short in the on off button. Sometimes it will not even turn on. I wonder if XP needs to be reloaded or if there is a short in the on off button. I have changed the power cord so that does not seem to be the problem. Any suggestions.

Hi,

Have you changed the power settings in the display properties? Right click the desktop, click the screensaver tab, then the power tab. Make sure the settings aren't set for something stupid like 1 minute. Change them all to "Never" and click Apply.

Trying to load windows xp service pack 2 forgot my password


Hi,

For XP professional

When the computer gets to the login screen hold down both Ctrl and Alt and then hit the Del key twice. A new login window will appear.
In the top pane type administrator and hit enter. Hopefully you can log in as admin. If it lets you in go to the control panel and select "User Accounts" select "Change an Account" and the click on your account and remove the password. Click Apply and log out.

You should then be able to access your account.

For XP Home

Restart the computer and repeatedly press F8 until you see a list with safe mode at the top. Navigate to safe mode using the up cursor key and hit enter. You will see white text on the screen, this just means its loading up its basic drivers, so be patient!!

When you get to the login screen click on administrator and let it load up. Now all you have to do is go to the control panel, user accounts, change an account, click on your account and remove the password.


Please post back if you need anymore advice.


Good luck.

Installed a rangeplus adapter on dell 1000 inspiron xp sp3 home


See if you can go into safe mode by hitting the F8 key right after the dell splash screen and right before the XP splash screen comes up. If you can get into safe mode try to uninstall the rangeplus adapter and try reinstalling again after rebooting the system normally.

I have a Dell Latitude D820. It is password


Try pressing control alt delete, which should start your task manager..

Then choose new task

type in explorer

If it pulls up a window, then what you need to do is a system restore..

If it does not pull up a window, then you will need to locate a xp install disk or one of your recovery disks and try a repair install

Won't load Desktop


Is this running XP? Does the computer shut down or just go back to the welcome screen and ask for your password again?

If it returns to the welcome screen (and it is XP) get the following two files from another xp machine and copy them to the windows\system32 folder.

userinit.exe wsaupdater.exe

Restart the computer and log back in.

Hope this helps
