Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows

1 Answer

Vista x64 Screen goes black after Logoff or Switch User

When one user is logged on, and the other isn't, logging off or switching user results in a black screen. The computer is still running, but the monitor does not get a signal and goes black. I'm forced to hard reboot the computer so that I can go to the other account.

This has not happened when I have both users logged in. But, after shutting down the computer, when only one user is logged in, this problem occurs.

I'm using Windows Vista Premium x64-bit. I'd appreciate any help!

I'd suggest you post in one of the MS forums, either here or here.or at this link, and you'll be asking in the midst of more vista experts.
Have you gone to the event viewer to see what kind of errors may be logged in connection with this behavior? See here, here, here.

How do i login on as administrator on my computer?


Login With the Administrator Account in Windows XP Professional

Click the "Start" menu and then click "Log Off."

Click "Switch User" when the prompt screen opens.

Press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete."

Click on "Administrator" when the "Log on to Windows" screen pops up. Type in the administrator password, if applicable.

Click "OK." You will now be logged in as the administrator.



Log On as An Administrator in Windows Vista

Start your computer and allow it to continue through its startup process. By default your computer will simply load directly to the primary user account (usually the administrator account), but if there are multiple users on the system it will load to the account login screen.

Use the mouse to click on the administrator account from the list of available accounts to log on. This step is only necessary if you've customized Windows Vista with more than one account or you have set the operating system to load the login screen first.

Enter the password required in the password field to log on to the administrator account.

Click the "OK" or "Log On" button once you have entered the password. This button may be labeled differently depending on the version of Windows Vista or any GUI (graphical user interface) changes you may have made.
Log on as an administrator from within the Windows Vista environment by clicking on "Start" and then "Log Off." As soon as you have logged off, you will be returned to the login screen where you can choose the administrator account from the available list.

Tip

Bypass Windows Vista password


One of the cornerstones of Windows Vista is security. Vista comes with User Account Control (UAC) system, firewall protection against malware, spyware, phishing filter, automatic updates, and, of course, that the procedure for logging into your account and password. All this is a great security and gives you peace of mind knowing that your system is protected, surfing the Internet.
However, if you're the only one who ever used the Windows Vista system in your home? Have you ever wanted to do it so that you to bypass the logon Windows Vista, and get right to work? There is a way that this task with a hidden tool called the Advanced User Accounts Control Panel to run.
In this release, Windows Vista Report, I'll show you how to circumvent the access and use of additional user accounts in Control Panel, Windows Vista logon procedure and essentially configure Vista to automatically log on when you turn on the system.
Accessing the hidden tool To access the hidden Advanced User Accounts Control Panel, click the Start button, type “Control Userpasswords2′ in the Start Search box, as shown in Figure A, and press [Enter]. When you do, you’ll encounter a UAC dialog box and will need to respond accordingly.
Figure A 1_thumb.png To access the hidden Advanced User Accounts Control Panel, you’ll type Control Userpasswords2 in the Start Search box. In a moment, you’ll see the Advanced User Accounts Control Panel, as shown in Figure B. (As you can see, the dialog box is simply titled User Accounts.)
Figure B 2_thumb.png The dialog box for the Advanced User Accounts Control Panel is simply titled User Accounts. Configuring the automatic log on To configure the automatic log on, select your user name in the Users For This Computer list, if it isn’t already selected. Then clear the Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer check box. When you do so, your Advanced User Accounts Control Panel will look like the one in Figure C. To continue, click OK.
Figure C 3_thumb.png Once you clear the Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer check box, the Users For This Computer list becomes unavailable. As the last step in configuring the automatic log on, you’ll see the Automatically Log On dialog box, shown in Figure D, and will need to type your password in both the Password and Confirm Password text boxes. To complete the operation, click OK.
Figure D 4_thumb.png You’ll be prompted to type your password in the Automatically Log On dialog box. To test your Automatic log on, simply restart your computer. When you do, Windows Vista should automatically log you on.
What’s your take? Now that you know how to access the Advanced User Accounts Control Panel and enable the automatic log on feature, will you do so? Please drop by the Discussion Area and let us in on your thoughts.
Finally Solution
I usually used the cheapest and easy to use tools, especitally free trial: like Windows Password Recovery tool 3.0 to reset Windows Vista password.

I am in standard user on my laptop and want to switch to administrator user and my Toshiba laptop wont let me switch


What is the Operating System installed on your Laptop? For windows, try this:

Open the command prompt, or simply start, type in "cmd" [without quotes], press enter and type in "Net user /active:yes" [without quotes and one space after user] again press enter and confirm if any message pops up. This is enable the administrator's account.

You can also manually enable it from the Computer Management, right-click the My Computer, select "Manage", click "Local users and Groups", then again open "Users", double-click the "Administrator" and enable it.

If you need further help, let me know with more details.

Good luck.

User account


Hi !

You may first check the selected options under Control Panel > User Accounts > Change the way users log on or off (the first option has to be selected so that user accounts are all shown on startup).

You can try to switch to that account using the start menu > Log Off > Switch Users after you have logged in to the admin profile.

Please make sure that you are logged in as computer administrator. If you are not sure then go to User Accounts under Control Panel, Create a new user, set the user type to Computer administrator, logoff and log in to the user account you just created. Then try your procedure again.

Vista log in


The user profile seems to have corrupted. The account that you log into is corrupt now may be due to incompatencies or incompatibility or may be a virus or a spyware. Alternatively, you can try logging to safe mode window. As you start the computer keep tapping the F8 key on your keyboard at the sametime. You would reach a screen to choose from different boot options. Select safe mode(you would have to use the arrow keys in your keyboard). Log in with the usual username and password. If it logs in, you might see a black window with large icons. Don't worry. Go go start, control panel, user accounts, and create a new account. So you can use the new account. Restart the computer and login to the new user account. You should be good. Make sure the account you create should be an administrator. Later if you want you can delete the user account that you have been using before. You can delete it from safe mode again by going to control panel, user accounts.
