Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

It doesn't boot up right.

I have a Windows XP and when I boot it up it does just fine until I get past the boot screen right before the logon screen. The monitor turns to a greenish-grey color; I have already tried to start with the last known good configuration too. I don't know what to do. Please help!

Dear Friend,Make sure the VGA cable is properly connected(also ensure Driver Properly Re-installed).Overly green color means the Red gun is turning off. This could be a cable issue or a component failing within the monitor. You can try and move the cable around and see if it improves.OR It might be with bad picture tube, but it's most likely a bad solder connection. It may probably turns out that the board connector pins are poorly soldered to the printed circuit board. As the unit warms up, stuff expands and the connection "heals" temporarily.
Hope this make you a Conclusion.... Thanks for Contacting FixYa

How to disable the Windows XP Splash Screen / logo at startup ?
To disable the Windows XP splash screen (logo) at startup, and to see the list of drivers loading at startup, follow these steps:
Click Start, Run and type MSCONFIG
Click the Boot.ini tab
Under Operating Systems section, select the appropriate entry and then enable the /SOS switch in the Boot Options section below
Click OK and close MSCONFIG utility.
The corresponding entry in the Boot.ini file is automatically added. Example given below:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(5)\WINDOWS="XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
becomes
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(5)\WINDOWS="XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /sos
The /sos parameter displays the names of the drivers as they load during the boot process. Use when startup fails (while loading drivers) to determine which driver is failing to load. See Boot Parameter Reference for more information.
Also see /noguiboot parameter, which can also disable the splash screen.

I set my admin account to limited user and i cant open it anymore..please help to retrieve this user account.thank you..


i assume you are using Windows XP.
try log off and login as "Administrator", if you remember the password. Try blank password first. if it doesn't show in the list, press Ctrl-Alt-Del twice and type it in.
if no joy, you can download this iso, burn it onto CDR as disk image, not data.
restart and boot from this CD, then you have the chance to change/reset/blank any user's password. but take care not to do other thing. follow the author's instructions.
good luck!
