This is an easy task. Just hit F8 during booting. This will open up a window that will give you options such as Last Known Good Configuration, Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, etc. Just choose the one you want and the Laptop will get through it.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Try starting it up in "Safe Mode" as it is starting up Keep pressing F12 key, I believe it is. Start up in safe mode, if it starts and runs you probably have a virus.

No password to enter computer


When the login screen comes up and asks for the username and password.
Username - Administraion
there should be no password for that account.
Once into the system go to the control panel and then to user accounts and change what you desire.

XP home hold F8 untill you get to the boot mode and choose Safe Mode once in to the system go to control panel and user accounts and do the same as above.
If this doesnt work please respond with OS.

If you are able, when the pc is booting up keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode and not allow the graphics driver to run. When in the safe mode options, select either Last known good configuration or start windows in safe mode. Last known good configuration should find the last good system settings, when it reboots. Start windows in safe mode allows you to go into windows using the administartor account, and then you should select system restore and restore back to the day before or just before you updated the graphics driver.
