Question about PC Desktops

I accidentally pulled out a Verbatim 4 gb stick from my computer, without realizing that it should only be removed in the "safe" mode. Now it won't work. Is it permanently damaged or can it be repaired or reprogrammed? If so, how?

Before proceeding the following steps, please make sure that you never set a password for the built-in administrator account on your Windows XP machine or you can remember password of a Windows account with administrative privileges.<br /><br />Step 1. Turn on your computer.<br /><br />Step 2. Repeatedly tap F8 key as the computer is booting. It will bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below.<br /><br /><img src="yaoch.png" /><br /><br />Step 3. Use your arrow keys to select "Safe Mode with Command Prompt" and press Enter.<br /><br />Step 4. Windows will load files until you see a logon screen similar screen with all your account user names displayed. Enter password for your administrator account to get in safe mode.<br /><br />Step 5. You'll see Windows command prompt after entering safe mode.<br /><br />Step 6. Enter "net user" on the command prompt, and press Enter. It will list all the user names of your Windows accounts. Here we assume that there is a user name of "Jack" in the list and you want to bypass the "Jack" account password.<br /><br />Step 7. Enter "net user Jack 123456" on command prompt and press Enter.

Now all the operations compete and you can exit safe mode by restarting computer.<br /><br />Please note this method will not work for you if you cannot enter safe mode with an administrator account. Under this circumstance, what should you do next? Well, don't feel impressed. Windows password recovery solutions aren't limited to this. <a href="http://www.anypasswordrecovery.com/" style="font-weight: bold;">Rekeysoft Windows Password Recovery</a> is another good choice. It only takes you 4 steps to bypass Windows XP password in less than 5 minutes.<br /><br />Step 1. Download and install Windows Password Recovery.<br /><br />Step 2. Burn a bootable Windows password reset CD/DVD/USB flash drive.<br /><br />Step 3. Insert the CD/DVD/USB flash drive in the locked computer and set BIOS of the computer to boot from CD/DVD/USB flash drive.<br /><br />Step 4: <a href="http://www.anypasswordrecovery.com/reset-windows-xp-password.html" style="font-weight: bold;">Reset Windows XP password</a> under Win PE with a few clicks.<br /><br />Of course, if you had created a password reset disk after creating a Windows password, you can easily use this disk to change the lost login password to a new one with ease. It will save you from a lot of troubles when forgot login password to your Windows XP computer.

Boot up the machine in "Safe Mode", uninstall the antivirus software using the add remove programs in the control panel. Reboot the machine, reinstall the correct version and scan your system. If you have a problem, reboot to safe mode and do the scan in safe mode.

Black screen comes up "windows did not start successfully...." choose from safe mode, safe mode with networking etc Last known Configuration or Start Windows Normally. Computer then tries to...


You should opt Safe Mode:
  • On the black screen just navigate throug up and down arrow keys.
  • Goto Safe Mode and press enter.
  • It will boot your system in safe mode.
If the boot is success full:
  • try to remember any software or hardware you recently installed/change. Then remove/uninstall that software/hardware. Also remove some device driver like Video/Audio driver and make re-start. and try to normal boot. If success then install your audio/video.
If no success then I think its time to re-install your windows.
Please post your feed-back.

Need help logging into computer without passcode


If this is WindowsXP, reboot the computer in safe mode by re-starting the computer and pressing F8 repeated as the computer starts up. You will be presented with different "modes" to start windows in. Choose 'Safe Mode". Then (in safe mode) click Start and then click Run. In the open box type "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes). You will now have access to all the user accounts, including the administrator's account and will be able to reset the lost password. Just click the administrator user account or any account, and then click Reset Password.

PC turns on then quickly turns off


Does it boot fine if you remove the memory you just added? If it does then try switching the memory that was in it before with the memory you just added. You want to first determine if the ram you bought is bad or incompatible.
