You have to know about your primary admin password, that was given in the time of xp installation progress. This only password prompted in the repair option.

If you didnt enter the password at the time of installation. you can go easily without the password in Repair option.

Boots up but goes to the xp screen and then shuts down and restarts. what do i do?


You will need your XP CD to run a Repair install.

1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will need to press enter to setup Windows XP.
3. To setup Windows XP now and Repair Install, press ENTER. DO NOT choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup. After the reboot read the fix at the end of this post.
6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.


If you don't have an option to repair, try this:

1. Boot with XP CD.
2. Press R to load the Recovery Console.
3. Login to the Recovery Console using your Admin password if needed.
4. Type bootcfg
5. This should fix any boot.ini errors causing setup not to see the XP installation.
6. Try the repair install again.

If the Repair is still not an option, try the following:

1. Boot with XP CD.
2. Press R to load the Recovery Console.
3. Login to the Recovery Console using your Admin password if needed.
4. If the CD letter is K: give these commands

* copy K:\i386\ntldr C:\
* copy K:\i386\ntdetect.com C:\

While still in the Recovery Console, try this as well:

1. Type: attrib -h -r -s C:\boot.ini del C:\boot.ini
2. Type: BootCfg /Rebuild
3. Now Restart and try the Repair Install again.

Dont have adm pasword for IBM R40 cant log in


If you're talking about a boot up password for the laptop, you have to open the laptop up and take out then put back in the circular battery. This should reset such settings. You'll want to also make sure the actual battery is taken out and laptop is unplugged when doing this.

If you're talking about the Admin account on your windows installation, you can reinstall Windows making sure not to pick options that do not destroy any data. Alternatively you can use a 3rd party app that you boot to.

Ophcrack:

If you download the Live CD for your platform it will use a legal method for 'guessing' the admin password.

A friend held down the pwr button after a windows update to restart the PC instead of doing a shutdown (he thought that's the way to do a restart) and now it BSODs on normal XP start and locks up mid...


The recovery console can only be used if you have a recovery disk that was supplied or if you made one.

This is not a repair option that will just repair the PC.

The admin password is the password you set, windows does not set any passwords, so if you did not set a password then just hit enter, but as I said you need the recovery disk.

If you can not get into safe mode or the PC does not have a option to enter system restore, which could be F8, then there are a few things you can try.

You can try the last known good configuration,
you can try the repair boot.

.Boot with XP CD or 6 floppy boot disk set. 2. Press R to load the Recovery Console.
3. Type bootcfg.
4. This should fix any boot.ini errors causing setup not to see the XP OS
install.

Your best bet is if you have the windows disk,is to reinstall windows, but you need to go to the maker of the computer or you need to go to the motherboard and get all the drivers for your system.

What happened was, when windows installs updates it is writing to the system, and it warns you not to shut down, and this can take up two a few hours, it could have been updating a service pack. The system is stuck in writing and you will have better luck just reinstalling when using windows xp.
Vista is eaiser to repair then xp.

Can't repair bootsector in XP PRO


You can try this, with the pc running, open case,touch the metal case with one hand and the other hand unplug the drive. Now shut down
the system,unplug the system and hit the power button until the lights die. Plug in the drive and reboot the pc, go into bios and go to
boot. Check to see the drive is listed boot order. reboot and see if it boots.

If you can get into user account you can set admin password, then try restore cd then run fixmbr in dos.

If you can, get HDD Regenerator, and you can check the drive for errors, them run it again and repair them if possible.

But no, most of the time something causes the file to corrupt and lose boot not a bad sector on the hard drive.

Windows>\system32\hal.dll. corrupt


HAL.DLL Missing or Corrupt

If you get an error regarding a missing or corrupt hal.dll file, it might simply be the BOOT.INI file on the root of the C: drive that is misconfigured

Insert and boot from your WindowsXP CD.
At the first R=Repair option, press the R key
Press the number that corresponds to the correct location for the installation of Windows you want to repair.
Typically this will be #1
Type bootcfg /list to show the current entries in the BOOT.INI file
Type bootcfg /rebuild to repair it
Take out the CD ROM and type exit
