Ok.. this is going to take some time so make sure you have plenty, and also make sure you follow instructions. lastly I hope you have good back ups as messing something may likely required reinstallation of your os.
(note: if I were you I would try to install the os in another system with a hd enclosure and I will try to get all the files you need out of the hd before you attempt anything, that way if you mess something up you can just reinstall the os if needed)

(note. I would unplug everything you have hooked up to your computerbefore you start (leave it only with monitor, keyboard, mouse) and thenattempt to fix the problem as suggested)

now, take a deep breath.. and start:

my suggestion is to revert your windows back to the time before you installed windows xp3. the process is as follows:

1st.. install the recovery console
the instructions are here (you need a windows cd to do this and you need to install the recovery console from the cd)

2. attempt to do a system restore from the recovery console
the instructions are here (this a very critical step as you would be playing with the registry.. messing something up here will require to reinstall windows

3. make sure you are in fact ready to get install sp3:
read this

4. now try to download sp3 onto a cd and install from safe mode
the instructions and the download link are here

Good luck!

Try this solution to your problem


Start your computer
1. Keep pressing "F8" as the laptop computer starts.
This will start the computer in Safe Mode.
2. When the window "Advanced Boot Options" opens, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and confim by pressing the Enter key, then PC enters the Safe Mode.
3. Once you are in the Safe mode Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.
Take note that you have set the Administrator password before, you need to input the changed password instead of leaving "Password" field blank.
4. Then click Start > Control Panel > User Accounts > Select the account that is locked and change the password.
5. Restart laptop and login into the account you just created using your new password.

Installed a rangeplus adapter on dell 1000 inspiron xp sp3 home


See if you can go into safe mode by hitting the F8 key right after the dell splash screen and right before the XP splash screen comes up. If you can get into safe mode try to uninstall the rangeplus adapter and try reinstalling again after rebooting the system normally.

I cannot logon to my PC


Start your PC in safe mode, to do this repeatedly tap the F8 key as soon as you turn the power on. This will then bring up an "options" screen listing boot in safe mode, safe mode with network support etc. Just use safe mode. If it goes directly to windows instead - shut it off and try again til u get the safe mode screen. The arrow keys control the selection to choose.When it starts in safe mode a black screen will usually appear with a bunch of writing, this is normal, after that it may "hang" for as long as 5 minutes, before coming up with a login screen. Sometimes hitting enter or escape will bring up the login screen faster. When you have a login screen, login and disable the updates using the software control options for the software that is trying to update. You might also go to control panel, administrator options, then services and disable automatic updates temporarily. When your pc starts in safe mode - it starts with minimal drivers and does not run updates- this allows you to change settings. You can then reboot normally and it should start properly without updating before starting.

I forgot my Login password!


Is this your Windows password? If it is, try this:
1) Restart in Safe Mode.(reboot and start hitting F8 key when something appears on screen.)
When list appears choose safe mode and hit enter.
2) Remember that 9/10 PCs running XP do not have any password on the Administrator account that shows up when you boot in Safe Mode.
3) Login to said Admin account.
4)go to START -> RUN ->enter "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes) in the runbox
5) reset your password.
If this fixed your problem please rate this as fixed. If not or you meant a different password, don't rate yet,add a comment and let me know what's happening and I'll be glad to help you further. Thanks.
