    Does Windows lock you out after 2 tries or does lock up each time you try to login?

You can always try using a side trick. Press ctrl + alt + and delete twice, that might get you to a point that you can type the name you are wanting too.

Forgot my log on password how can i reset password


I have included instructions for windows XP, however, no matter what operating system you have installed on your notebook, this solution may work. When windows is installed, there is an adminstrator account installed on the computer by default. Most often, the password is left blank.

So, if you restart your computer, hit control-Alt-Deletecan when the user account page appears and type in Administrator as the user and leave the password blank, you may be able to sign onto your computer to reset your user password. Step by step instructions are listed below. If you cannot access your computer using the administrator account, you many have to use the restore partition on your computer to do a restore of windows. This will bring windows back to the original configuration as it was when the computer was delivered to you. You should be able to chose a "Non destructive" restore so that your hard drive is not formatted and your documents will not be erased.

If you need further instruction on using the restore utility on your Pavilion notebook, let me know.

Here are the step by step instructions:

Log on as an administrator to reset the password

loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); If you did not create a password reset disk, you may be able to log on as an administrator to reset a forgotten or expired password. The steps to do this differ if the computer is a stand-alone computer or a member of a workgroup of two or more, or a member of a domain. Select the appropriate set of steps from the following to try to log on as the administrator to reset the password.

Windows XP Home Edition or Windows XP Professional

loadTOCNode(4, 'moreinformation'); To log on to a computer as the administrator to reset a password, try the following steps.

1. Log on as an administrator.

a. Restart the computer.

b. Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE two times, and then type the name of the administrator user account.

c. In the Password box, type the administrator password, and then click OK.

Note If the administrator password is set to a blank password, do not type a password before you click OK.

2. Reset the password.

. Click Start, and then click Run.

a. Type control userpasswords2, and then click OK.

b. On the Users tab, click the name of the user account that you want to reset the password for, and then click Reset Password.

c. Type a new password in the New password box, and then type the password again in the Confirm new password box, and then click OK.

d. Restart the computer, and then try to log on to Windows XP again.
If you can log on as an administrator to reset your password and you can now log on successfully, you have resolved the issue, and you are finished.

I have forgotten my password for logging on to windows xp. is there any way I can reset the whole computer and start over.


No problem! We can recover Windows XP admin password.
Just download our windows password Recovery Tool 3.0 to recover your lost Windows passwords.
How does it work?

Just use the box below to download the utility. This is a ".exe" file which will burn itself onto a blank CD. Then pop the CD into your locked PC, and
boot from the CD.

If you have an Internet connection on your locked PC then it will automatically upload the encrypted password to our server for decryption. Once
decrypted, we will send you an email advising you where to log in to view your Windows password.

If you don't have an Internet connection to your locked PC, you can extract the encrypted password to a USB stick and upload manually to our website for
decryption.

It supports usb flash drive too.

Windows xp pro logon error message "unable to log you on because your account has been locked out"


Hey!
If your computer is a part of a business network, you should contact the network administrator so he/she would setup or reconfigure your user account correctly.

If it's a home computer, you'll have to log on as Administrator to unlock your account. To do so:
  1. Click Start -> Log off (user name).
  2. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice.
  3. Type Administrator in the user name and fill in the Administrator account's password. Leave blank if there isn't any.
  4. Once logged in, Click Start -> Run...
  5. Type in: LUSRMGR.MSC and click OK.
  6. Double-click on Users folder.
  7. Double-click on your locked user account.
  8. Uncheck "Account is disabled" and click OK.
  9. Close "Local Users and Groups" window.
  10. Click Start -> Log off Administrator.
  11. Login to your user account!
Note: If you don't have access to the Administrator account (because you don't have the password), please do tell and I'll give you the instructions on how to reset it.

GOOD LUCK!
Pelu.

When I attempt to log onto my network I receive this message. ''Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you onto the network (network name)'' This is followed by ''Validating Identity'' which when...


This is caused by setting the encryption to WPA-RADIUS instead of WPA-PSK on the client radio. Both the router and the client are
trying to find a RADIUS server with which to authenticate your system.Switch the encryption to WPA-PSK (pre-shared key) on both ends and it will work.
