Start the computer in safe mode and run System Restore

  1. Click the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, click the arrow next to Shut Down, and then click Restart.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You must press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
    • If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to start in safe mode, and then press F8.
  3. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Safe Mode, and then press Enter.
  4. Log on to your computer with a user account that has administrator rights. When your computer is in safe mode, you'll see the words Safe Mode in the corners of your monitor.
  5. Click the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, type "system restore" in the search box, click System Restore, and then click Next. 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b_48.jpg If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  6. Choose a restore point when your PC worked as expected, click Next, and then click Finish.
  7. Restart your computer normally.
If these steps solve the problem, you're done. If not, try repeating the steps and selecting an older restore point (if one is available). If that still doesn't solve the problem, contact your computer manufacturer or technical support for further assistance.

    My 9 year old computer is lock how do i unlock it if i forget his pass word


    If you have another account on your laptop that has administrator rights, log in into that account and change the password for your account (click on switch account to log in). If you have an administrator account (even if you don't try putting in Administrator and leave password field blank) try using that account to reset the password, otherwise try one of the following:
    - see this for XP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321305
    - or this for Vista/Win7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/What-to-do-if-you-forget-your-Windows-password
    - or if anything else didn't work you can use thrid party software from Hiren's Boot CD http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/Hirens.BootCD.12.0.zip

    I have a Gateway computer running Win98 that prompts me for a password at startup. It didn't use to do this, so I don't know what password it is asking for. Never used one! It is doing this after a power...


    Somehow, the motherboard thinks that a "start-up" password is required.

    If you have a desktop computer, turn the computer off, open the case, and look on the motherboard. Look for three pins (labelled 1, 2, and 3), and look for a small "jumper" that is connecting pin 1 to pin 2. Move the jumper to connect pin 2 to pin 3. Wait 5 seconds.
    Move the jumper back to connect pin 1 to pin 2.
    Turn the computer on -- the "BIOS-password" will have been removed.
