I can turn on my laptop and it will begin booting up. I can see it. When I enter my log in and password and press enter the screen will flash and go black. I can hear it processing but no display is there. I plugged in to another monitor and when it gets to the login I can see the display on that screen just not mine. HELP!
Try pressing and holding the fn key while pressing F4 to switch between display modes (it might F5 instead) Wait a few seconds after pressing F4 before pressing it againt to give it a chance to switch. It sounds like you have it set to use and external monitor and you need to toggle back to the built in LCD.

When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as the user to log in once you have your computer running again you have to take control (administrator)control panel useraccounts on the users tab,click the name of the computer administrator you can change the password there or if your computer has a system restore you can restore it to an earlier date which will have your personal settings or during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain keyto enter set up

Probably the easiest way to resolve this issue is by following the steps outlined below.
1. Shut down the computer. 2. Turn the computer on and immediately press F8 repeatedly until you get the "Advanced Boot Options" menu. 3. use the down arrow to select "Safe Mode" and press enter. 4.

Click ok and the operating system should restore your computer successfully and reboot into normal mode.

Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
Copy the below two files to the root usually C:\ directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "D." This letter may be different on your computer.
If you are using Windows XP, insert your Windows CD in the CD/DVD drive and restart your computer, make sure it boots from the CD. After loading a bunch of things, you should see a screen that tells you to press "R" to go to the recovery screen. Press the R key and when that screen loads, press 1 to log onto Windows. If you are asked for a password, just press the enter key. When you get a C:\Windows prompt, type chkdsk /r and press enter. It will take up to 90 minutes for this to run. When it finishes, type exit, press enter and remove the CD from the drive. Hopefully this will fix your problem.
Oh, you must be an Administrator, right? If there is another Administrator account on the PC, it can restore your password through User Account Settings -> Manage Another Account.
If not, I have a complex way. First, restart the PC. When it shows the HP logo when booting up, press the button for Setup (it is shown at the bottom of the screen, and it is F8 on my HP tx2001au).
Now, don't get scared by what appears. It looks a bit complex, but it is very simple and easy.
Navigate using the keyboard. Press the right button to move to the Security section. Here, press Enter on the Administrator Password option. Now enter and confirm a new password and you're done.
See the bottom of the screen for the button for 'Quit Saving Changes' and the computer will reboot. Now, I guess you can enter the new password.
If this doesn't work, see online for ways to reset a password in Vista. There are some softwares to burn to a CD and use.
If it is an XP, I guess there is nothing to do. Just press Ctrl+Alt+Del on the logon screen to see the classic logon screen. Type in the username 'Administrator' without quotation marks and the password blank. Press Enter and enjoy.
Start up in safe mode pressing F8 on boot up and select safe mode.
When in the system under administrator there will be option for you to delete the password on your account.
Re boot then enter again with no password.
