Forgot the password


Hold F8 on boot up, and boot into Safe Mode. There will be an Administrator account, which you can use to reset your account password.
If somehow the Administrator account is disabled, you can use alternative methods like: this, this and this.

My computer can't boot. I'm receiving an error message user profile cannot be loaded. I tried restarting the computer but the problem is still the same. Any idea how to fix it?


Hi brollydragon,

Welcome to FixYa! How is it going?

When did the problem start? Did it happen just recently?

Please try to do the following to resolve the problem:

1. Please try to boot your computer to safe mode. You can boot to safe mode by doing the following:

  • Turn off the computer. Turn on the computer then immediately start tapping the F8 key repeatedly.
Note:
You must press F8 before the Windows logo appears on the screen. If you press F8 after the Windows logo appears, the Advanced Boot Options menu does not appear on the screen. If you do not see the Advanced Boot Options menu, restart the computer, and then repeat this step until you see the menu on the screen.
  • Use the (Down Arrow) arrow key on the keyboard, scroll down to Safe Mode then press Enter.
  • Login to your User Name.

2. Use System Restore to restore the computer's settings to an earlier date:
  • Navigate to the Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools.
  • Click on the System Restore program icon.
  • Click Next > on the Restore system files and settings window.
  • Choose the restore point that you want to use.
Note: Check the Show more restore points checkbox to see more than the most recent restore points.
  • Click Next >.
  • Click Finish on the Confirm your restore point window to begin the System Restore.
Note: Windows will shut down to complete the System Restore.

Hope that helps
. Thank you for using FixYa!

Iam using windows xp sp-2 ,


Faster way: Re install your Microsoft Windows.

Slower way: Try to work around by pressing F8 during booting process and choose "Boot in Safe Mode". Locate the problem that could be caused by hardware driver such as VGA etc.

Another possibilities:

It might be not your windows, but your hardware. Could be the hard Disk or the computer it self.

To define it you should provide us some more information, such as:

  1. Did the power supply turn up?
  2. Did the PRE BOOT (BIOS initialization) appeared in the first place before "the blank screen" appeared
  3. etc
Looking forward to hearing again from you...

Go to dos command when there is a problem in booting


Hopefully you are using Windows XP. For fixing it up you need Windows CD and a CDROM Drive of your computer. Set First Boot Device to CDROM and Boot your computer using windows xp cd. Let the cd load all the drivers and when welcome screen comes. press "R" to enter recovery console.
Here it will search the operating systems located on your disk and a list will appear. Choose the Correct Location and enter administrator password. Copy NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM from I386 Folder on the CD to C:\(assuming C:\ is your BOOT Drive). It will ask you to overwrite, say "y". Run "chkdsk /p" to verify drive integrity. To verify boot.ini config type "Bootcfg /list" on the prompt. After Completing this type exit. Your System will reboot.
