Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S169 Notebook

1 Answer

User is asked to log in for the first time in 4 years

When my son turns on his laptop, he is asked to log in. My name (Angela, his mother) is the only name there. I click on my name. It says it is loading my settings, gives a blank screen, and then comes right back to the same login screen. This is my son's laptop and he was never asked to log in as me before.

Also, when I start the computer, there are three horizontal lines on the screen.

My son changed his password on his netbook. now he doesn't remember it. he cannot log in at all. he can do absolutely nothing with it. how can we fix this?


at Windows XP's Welcome Screen, simply press Ctrl-Alt-Del keys sequence together twice, and you will be shown a Log On to Windows menu where you can specify the User Name and Password. In the User Name text box, key in "Administrator" (without quotes) and leave the Password field blank. Then press Enter or click on OK. If there it is not a password protected Administrator account, or blank password is set, then you will be able to access the Windows with full administrative privileges as Administrator.

Then simply click start > control panel > User accounts then select your sons account and click edit then click remove password. once done simply log off and then log in to your sons account and no password will be asked for. If your son is the root administrator then you will need to get software to reset the password for you

Yahoo wants me to sign in every time i try to access my mail; how do i get this crazyness to stop?


You can have your computer remember your user name and password whenever you try to log in. You just need to do the following;
1. go to Browsing History under Internet Options
2. delete Cookies, Cache, Temporary Internet files and Password.
3. open IE or any browser log in using your user name and password
4. then there would either be a pop-up or a notification found on top or at the bottom of the screen asking if you'll remember the user name / password.
5. try to log out and close the browser and then open a fresh browser and try to log in and type the user name and password
6. select or put a check mark under the pop-up remember password
