You may not have to do a repair install, and this will help k4k for sure. When you boot the computer, press F8 a bunch of times. Some computers will beep a bunch, if it does that, just stop pushing F8. When the menu comes up, choose 'safe mode with command prompt'. The computer will then list all files it's loading, and this is normal. After it boots, log in as administrator. You will only see the black cmd window, but that's all we need. Your ultimate goal is to remove the current user password, and we will achieve this by typing:

net user [username] [new password]

Hit enter. Don't type the '[' and ']'. you can leave the new password section blank to remove the password, but it's better to keep a new one for security reasons. User name is the current user.

This may fix the lsass error, or it may not. But it's much easier than a repair install, and will at least be worth a try.

I hope this helps, and good luck!

Put the MS Windows CD in the drive, restart the computer and make sure it's booting from the CD, then make a repair installation.

Error message "restore failed 0x00000070"


Step 1:
Which operating system ?

Use an external memory device such as a DVD, flash drive or external hard drive to back up the data you need to save from your eMachines computer. Any data that isn't saved to an external source will be erased when the computer is restored to factory settings. Remove any discs that are in the optical drive and unplug the computer's peripheral devices, such as an Ethernet cable or scanner. Do not disconnect the keyboard, mouse or monitor. Click the Windows "Start" menu and choose "All Programs." Navigate to "eMachines" and choose "eMachines Recovery Management." Click the "Restore" tab. Click "Password Settings" if you have not already set a recovery password. Type a new password in the text box and click "OK." Click "Restore System to Factory Default." Type the recovery password and click "OK." Click "Next" to wipe the eMachines computer's hard drive and begin the recovery process. Select "Finish" and wait for the eMachines computer to restart. Use the series of installation prompts that appear on the screen to create a new user account for your operating system, set the system date and time, and set up your Internet settings.

I need to know the reboot menu on the t1090 thamks


What OS is installed?
A lot of Windows machines will let you into the boot menu by tapping F12 continuously when you restart the unit.
Tapping F8 accomplishes the same thing on some machines.
Check this thread as well, it may assist:

Your description of the problem isn't very specific- ie: Do you get a specific error message when booting the machine?

Lsass.exe system error insufficient system resources exist to com


You probably have been hit by a virus that is attacking your Local Security Accounts Windows file and is using all your system resources. You may not be able to perform a system scan to fix this issue do to the lack of system resources. Now if you have another pc with a good and upto date antivirus application you can take the hard drive out of your computer and plug it into that other computer and scan it and remove the infection and while you have it in their go to the command prompt and repair the windows files by typing:
chkdsk E: /r
The E: is the drive letter of your infected drive you will know what this is when you go into my computer.
Also use a spyware program like Adaware that is up to date to scan the drive as well.
This all assumes you want to save the drive, Windows, and all your applications. Now if you don't care about those things then try a system restore to go back to a working point in your computers history.
Otherwise repair mode for windows will work also.

Pc does not go beyond Lsass.exe application error


Try getting into safe mode, by taping the f7 or f8 key before it boots. Once in safe mode we can do a restore to the last restore point, and go from there. If you can't get into safe mode, let me know and we will go into the bios, set the machine to boot from the dvd drive and use your xp disk to boot her up, this method id too much to post here, let me know and we will take it up only if needed. Also try this, turn off any user accounts that the computer has installed other than your administrator account, and let me know what happens
