Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

1 Answer

When I turn on my Panasonic CF-74 laptop and windows xp professional begins to boot-up, I get a pop-up screen asking for user name and password. Keyboard locks. Number lock is not on. When I press ok, I get a pop-up screen telling me me passwords are case sensitive, etc. My options are to shutdown, restart, sleep, hibernate, all of which lead back eventually to the log on user name screen where I'm prevented from typing anything.

Most computers will allow you to go into the bios while it is booting often this is done by holing down f8. Ounces in you will want to deactivate the bios password. Just a thought

SOURCE: Windows Vista home + Windows XP Professional Networking issue

Make sure domain settings to your server are correct on the notebook computer. These settings are located in the control panel of the system setting.

Whats the operating system of your server?

Make sure the firewall in windows security is turned off too. Sometimes that thing sneaks up on you.

I haven't used the home edition of Vista but another reason why it might not be working is because it isn't the business version. Microsoft might have added extra security to prevent the home version from connecting to a server. I know we use the business version of Vista at work and it is working that way on the intranet server without a problem.

I would check with Microsofts website on that.

SOURCE: HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!! Before my Son Freaks

hi, i will try and help.
Turn on the computer, as soon as you have pressed the on button press and hold F8. A list will come up. Choose safe mode. Then when it boots, in the username type administrator and the password will usually be blank, if this does not work try "admin". If there is a log on field showing then choose log on to this computer and do not choose dial up. Then press ok. The computer should log on. When it asks you if you want to continue working in safemode click yes. Then click start. Click control panel. Click user accounts. Click the password protected user account. Choose remove password. Then restart the computer and it should work normally.

Tell me if you need more help or if somthing goes wrong then you can take a picture of it and send it to jhobden600@gmail.com .

Thanks

SOURCE: log on password problems

I just copy and paste from the web then:'

There are 2 ways you can reset your bios.

1. On the motherboard there is a small watch battery. Remove this battery along with the power cable from the power supply. Hold down the power button to fully discharge the system. Wait 2-3 minutes then reinstall the battery and plug in your system. Your reset is now complete

2. Some motherboards have a 3 pin jumper by the battery. Lets say that the jumper is on pins 2 and 3. Remove the jumper while the machine is OFF and place onto pins 1 and 2. Power on your machine for a minute. (Note: Your system will not POST). Shutdown your machine and put the jumper back to pins 2 and 3. Your reset is now complete


This is a great troubleshooting step for those of you having POST issues or no POSTing at all. Like other troubleshooting steps, this will not always work but usually will depending on the problem.

I want to restore my panasonic cf 74 to original factory


The best way to "Factory" Restore your Panasonic
Toughbook CF74 is to use the original recovery
disk(s) that came with the unit when new.

If you can't find them, you can order them from
Panasonic at the following website:

http://business.panasonic.com/support-computerstablets-dvdrequests

Here is what they say:
Recovery DVDs are available by mail for select Toughbook® products. Windows® XP back up service is only available to customers who purchased Panasonic computers with XP downgrade rights. Windows XP Backup Image and Windows 7 Recovery DVDs restore a PC to its original factory image. The standard Panasonic factory image includes the Windows operating system and all drivers/applications originally installed by Panasonic.

Good Luck!

Windows xp installion does not see my hard drive on Panasonic CF-74


Just a thought but are you using XP Pro SP2 or SP3?

In my experience, only XP Service Pack 3 will see your
Hard Disk Drive, not XP Service Pack 2.

My toshiba laptop wont boot need passwor


Hi,

This is only possible is you are using Windows XP. If your operating system is windows Xp, follow the steps below:

  1. Turn on your laptop and allow it get to the stage where is will ask for user/log password
  2. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del your keyboard.
  3. A user name and password prompt will pop up.
  4. On the user name type in "administrator
  5. On the password, type in "administrator"
  6. and you windows will open, go to control panel from there to change the password.
That is all. In other words, the user name and password is administrator.

But in the case of windows Vista, you will have to re-run windows operating system, because vista security is very tight and its difficult to break into its password.

Take care.
