Its a bit long process(WINDOWS XP)
wot you have to do is turn off the computer completely
after you power it back on start hitting F8 KEY
You will get system advanced boot meny
using up or down arrow key highlight safe mode and press enter
it will ask your operating system just press enter again
it will load some files and then you will get user name options
other than your name there would be an administrator
choose administrator
don't put in any password if it asks
just hit enter
if u are able to log on as an administrator you can go to user accounts option in control panel and cad do anything

How can i log in my Delloptiplex 760 computer,when its auto logging off


If running XP

A log-on loop on your Windows XP computer is a difficult situation where the computer never completes its boot cycle, restarting intermittently ad nauseam.


This issue indicates a major problem with the boot functionality of your XP system.

Restore the computer to working order by utilizing the repair and restoration utility on your XP system disk.

Insert the XP disk into the computer.


Restart the computer.

Press any key when prompted to boot from the disk.

Press "Enter" at the first screen and "F8" at the license terms.


Highlight the drive containing XP and press "R," repairing the operating system boot files and removing the log-on loop.

or

Windows XP sometimes has a glitch when you are logging in to your user account in order to boot the operating system.

The glitch logs you in and then logs you off the account.


This problem is usually caused by one of the programs that load during the computer's start-up.

Fixing this issue is a matter of ensuring that whatever program is causing the problem doesn't start up as soon as you start your computer.

or


Power on the computer and allow it to get to the user logon page normally.

There is no need to start up the computer in "safe mode."


Click the user who is having the issue and type in the user's password if one is set up.

Press and hold the "shift" button on your computer keyboard as soon as you see the tool bar load up at the bottom of the screen but before any other program has a chance to do so.


This stops any "Startup" program from running and logging you off.


Right-click the "Start" button on the bottom left of your screen.


Select "Explore" from the menu that appears.


Double-click "Programs" from the list on the left side of the window that pops up.


Double-click "Startup."


Select all the files inside the "Startup" folder by dragging a box over them.


Right-click anywhere on the selected files.


Select "Delete" to delete those files.


Note that deleting the programs from the "Startup" folder does not delete them from your computer.


All this does is make it so that these programs no longer start as your computer is starting so that any error in the running of the programs doesn't interfere with logging in to your account.


Hope this helps

My PC does only has 1 user account and ther is no


You can always remove the hard drive from the system and put it in another computer to retrieve the files. Something must have corrupted your user account settings. I've noticed some systems when they were installed that people never paid any attention to the login screen during installation but you might try logging in as Admin or admin with no password. This works once in a while. If when you put the hard drive in another system it won't let you open the "Documents and Settings" directory (if it's XP) because you're not logged in as that user, you'll have to put it in a system with Windows Vista. Vista will allow you to take control of the directory and let you access this part of the drive.

I need to wipe my computer and dont know how


I am assuning you are using Vista as your OS, since you're talking about administrator privileges.
You will need a Vista disk.  If you purchased the PC and it did not come with a disk, there is typically an option in START -> ACCESSORIES -> SYSTEM TOOLS to burn a copy of Vista.  Please note: you can ONLY DO THIS ONCE. Once you have your Vista installation DVD burned, or if you already have it, simply put the DVD into your DVD drive and boot from it.  Follow the instructions to reinstall Vista.  I would recommend reformatting the hard drive during the course of installation.  You will see the option to do so when reinstalling. If you put the disk in the drive and it fails to boot, then you will have to configure your BIOS to boot from DVD drive first.  This can be done several ways depending on your BIOS, but usually is a matter of pressing the <ESC>, <DEL>, or <F1> key right after rebooting the computer.  Sometimes you will also have a boot menu accessed by pressing <F12> while booting. Hope this helps :)

Computer pc pass word forgotten


You should actually have 2 accounts. One is called Administrator and appears when you start your operating system in safe mode. It has no password by default so you should still be able to access it.

Restart your computer and keep hitting 'F8' until you're prompted with a menu. Select something along the lines of 'Start Windows In Safe Mode' and Windows will load. Just login to the administrator account and remove the password.
It might also be a good idea to put a password on the admin account and keep it somewhere safe.

If that doesn't work then reset the password via the jumpers on the MOBO. See below:

Assuming that you have a Pentium Processor:

Shut down your PC. Detach Power plug. Open your CPU case. Touch casing or metal to ensure grounding. You will see 3 pins on the mother board. In that 3 pins first 2 pins are closed with a jumper. Take the jumper off & replace it on the other two pins. Now try to turn on your PC. It should open Windows without asking you for password.

Locked files


You need to log-on as administrator to unlock it. If you're a user yourself, you will not be allowed to unlock it.

My little sister put a pass code on the log in screen. She does not have this computer anymore and i can"t change eneything on the computer. the reinstall disc i have will not work becacuse her pro...


One thing you should try first is to get ahold of your sister and get the pass word from her. Then you can go in to her account and go to controll pannel then to user profiles, then change a profile, select your profile and set it to administrator. This will give you the permissions to change things on the computer. If you are unable to get ahold of her, you can also go the route of pressing F8 at start up, and select safe mode as your start up choice. Once you get to the log in screen select Administrator, hopefully she has not changed the settings for this account. If you are able to log into the puter this way then simply go into controll pannel and do the same with your account. Change it to administrator. Then restart the computer and log into your account as normal.
