Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Will not log on to my account

My computer will boot up until the point where you have to log on to an account. Once I try to log on it automaticly logs back off. There are two accounts on my computer and I can't log on to either one of them. I've tried to log on by using the computer in safe mode. Even then it won't log on to the administrator.

I can't log in to my account on my Dell PC?


Now which operating system are you running ?

Forgetting your Windows XP login details might at first seem like a disaster. Don't panic though; your login password and username are easily recovered by changing the login details to that of the administrator.

Begin with your computer turned off, and then turn it on. You will need to log in to your computer manually and this can only be done in the load-up screens. Wait until your computer reaches the Windows login screen. The screen usually displays a "Welcome" message. Press and hold the "Ctrl", "Alt" and "Delete" keys two times at the Windows login screen. Your computer will automatically reveal a Classic Login box. Type "Administrator" (without quote marks) into the "Username" field and leave the "Password" field blank. Windows automatically creates an Administrator account when your computer is first booted up; in this account you can alter or change any user's login details. Navigate through the "Start" menu and click on the "Control Panel." In the Control Panel explorer, double-click on the "User Accounts" icon to open a new window. Select "Change an Account" in the User Accounts window and select the username you want to alter. From here you can edit the user's name and password, but you can also alter the user's picture, account type and .NET password. Restart your computer to login with your new username and password.

What to do if you forget your password on your computer.


Many people don't realize that if you forget your password to your account on your computer you can still get into your computer. Most of the time people panic about it and take it to a technician to get the problem fixed. Or they just don't care about loosing their information and just reformat. Well I know how to get access back to your computer really easily. All you have to do is just press f8 when you turn on you computer and wait for a screen to appear to how you want the computer to boot. Then go to safe mode and wait for the computer to get booted. Once it is and the log on screen appears click on administrator. Once you are logged into the account you can go to user accounts in the control panel then click on your account and then remove the password. If you have a password on the administrator account and forgot what it was there is one other easy way to fix this. All you have to do is just put in your os cd then just do a repair install this keeps all your data and it removes the password from the administrator account. Or if all else fails just use a password removing boot cd: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/gr/offlinentpwed.htm

How do i by password /


I'm guessing you're locked out of your computer and can't log in? When the computer is booting up tap F8 a few times until a screen comes up. You should see the option "Safe Mode" enter safe mode and you should have an administer account that you should be able to log into. From that point you can change your passwords for your other account.

As i switch on the computer it loads and takes me to the user selecting screen and once when i click on any one of the user it gets high lighted and gets logged out automatically and comes back to the user...


as the computer is loading press F* repeatedly until you reach a black sceen with options you need to highlight option safe mode, once on the safe mode logon screen choose administrator, this logs you to the main user, this is where you can change user acounts who log onto the mechine, goto control panel and left click on user acounts, in here remove all acount passwords and click on change the way user log on or off and uncheck each section and reboot the mechine, hopefully you will have a diferent log on screen just log in with your user name and password and you should avoid the rebooting. hope this helps and post back if it is still the same.

Acer Aspire M1100 Desktop - lost password, can't login in User Login. Is there a way to bypass the password?


If you're having trouble logging into Windows, you can attempt to use the Administrator account to edit/remove the password of the user login. The Administrator account is hidden by default while in normal mode. You'll need to boot the PC into Safe Mode and login as the Administrator account. Follow the below steps:

  1. Reboot the PC and before the Windows boot screen appears, tap the F8 key about once per second.
  2. Eventually you'll be faced with a screen asking you how you want to boot Windows. Select Safe Mode.
  3. You will see some dll, sys, and com files scrolling down your screen, this is normal. Eventually the PC will boot up and you'll have a login screen with your User Account(s) and a new account, Administrator. Select Administrator.
  4. As long as you haven't, in the past, altered the password for the Administrator account, you should be able to simply click this account and have it log you in. If it requests a password, you might try "password" (without quotes) for the password.
  5. Once in, Navigate to Start -> Control Panel -> User Accounts
  6. Select the User Login information that you're not able to log into and remove the password for the account or change it something you know.
You can now reboot the PC normally and be able to log into this account without a password or with the password you created.

Forgotten password


An easy way to log in after forgetting your password is to press f8 after the post screen when you turn on your computer. Boot into safe mode and log in under the administrator account. Once logged in, go to start>control panel>user accounts and chose your account. You can either choose to change the password or remove it entirely.

I put a password on my computer & then made a Guest Acct and i forgot my password. Is there anyway to get it reset or something?


log in as an administrator account then from there you can delete the guest account and create a new one.

if you do not know the administrator account then you need to go into safe mode for the computer. to get to safemode, just press F8 while the computer is booting up until you are given a menu. From the menu, simply select "Safe mode" and then login to the un-passsworded admin account. once you are inside just delete the guest account there and create a new one.
