Re: cannot log into my computer
Push F8 before you see the Windows loading screen. This will give you an option for safe mode. You will see a new account labled Administrator. Select that one and you can remove your password from your user account. Go to control panel, then user accounts. Select yours and remove password.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

I found an article in the Microsoft Community that may help your situation. There are also other methods available but wanted to see if this might help do the trick to get you into your system. If you need more advice please do not hesitate to reply and let me know. Other experts may also have alternative methods for you to be able to reset your password and gain access to your computer. Here is the quote from the Microsoft Community Site.
"If you have forgotten your password, if you have another user account with administrative privileges you can log into that account and change your original user account's password from the User Accounts applet in Control Panel. If you don't have another account like this set up or don't have the password to it, you'll need to log into the built-in Administrator account. In XP Home, boot the computer into Safe Mode. Do this by repeatedly tapping the F8 key as the computer is starting up. This will get you to the right menu. Navigate using your Up arrow key; the mouse will not work here. Once in Safe Mode, you will see the normally hidden Administrator account. The default password is a blank.
In XP Pro, you do not need to go into Safe Mode. At the Welcome Screen, do Ctrl-Alt-Del twice to get the classic Windows logon box. Type in "Administrator" and whatever password you assigned when you set up Windows.
If you have XP Pro or Media Center and were using the built-in Administrator account for your regular work and it is therefore the only user account on the system, there are ways to change the password for that account to a blank. Microsoft doesn't permit us to tell you how in these forums. Their house, their rules. Use Google or ask a local computer tech (not a BigComputerStore/GeekSquad type of place)."
If you need additional help and / or resources feel free to reply and I will do some more research on your issue. If this does not work if you can post your computer specifications that will help me to get you a more detailed response on how to get back into your computer.
You will need the password to log in.If you dont know the password you can always boot your PC from a CD. To boot your PC from a CD,insert the windows CD into the drive and then reboot the system.but before it logs in to windows that is before it says windows XP and loads click F8 and then choose boot from CD/DVD drive.Here you will be able to either reinstall the OS or repair the OS.If you reinstall the OS you will loose all the data but you will get the complete control of the system.Hope this solution was useful for you.
hi, if your computer is running with windows xp operationg system... you can change password by press F8 then go to safemode log on to administrator
their you can change the password... if still not working used your recovery disk and recover all os..
Here is a little trick to use that may or may not work: Start the computer in safe mode and log on as administrator. It's surprising how many people set up their XP computers and password protect their profile, but forget to password protect the administrator account. Once in, you can change your password in your own account.
You can reset any user password by logging in using the Administrator account through Safe Mode. In Windows XP Home you cannot log into the Administrator account in normal mode.
When your computer is starting up, hold down the F8 key. This will bring you to a black screen with white text. Use the arrow keys to highlight "Safe Mode" and then hit enter. This will boot the computer into Safe Mode, which will look normal except the resolution will be very low. Log in as the Administrator (should have a blank password). Once logged in, open the Control Panel, then User accounts, then reset the password or whatever user you want. Reboot the machine to get back into normal mode.
