Having problem with log on when I put my password in and press log screen goes blank and nothing happens

Start up pressing F8 and select safe mode with command prompt. In the dos window type chkdsk C: /p /r If you have more than one drive or your drive is not C: then enter the drive letter required. It may ask to restart. Let it run until it finishes. This could take several hours depending on drive size or file system errors.

Been away cannot remember password for my laptop compaq evo n400c

If you haven't written it down and your using Windows XP or later you'll have to take it to someone who can get in and delete the password file. This can only be done in DOS or by someone who knows system administration procedures. The other option is if you have the original Operating Systems disk you can boot off the disk and reinstall the system. If your using an earlier system you can boot in DOS and delete the file "Password.log"

I have a Dell Latitude D820. It is password

Try pressing control alt delete, which should start your task manager..

Then choose new task

type in explorer

If it pulls up a window, then what you need to do is a system restore..

If it does not pull up a window, then you will need to locate a xp install disk or one of your recovery disks and try a repair install

Wife forgot her adminastrator name and password

Hmm there are two ways. 1- At startup press F2 (maybe f12?) takes you to setup. From there you should be able to set your own passwords. 2 - At the login user name screen log into admin and change her password from users, under control panel. If you cant log unto admin, if her's is the only account, try pressing crtl+alt+dlt mutiple times together. Hope this helps, keep me updated.

When logging into windows vista, screen says locked. Once I type password in the desk top appears briefly and then goes back to login screen

Boot up your PC then when the bios screen disappears press F8 (to give you menu options like safe mode) one of these options is a vista repair option.....choose that and your pc should boot into windows properly....I believe this is a corrupt winlogon.exe....
