    what kind of information do you expect it to have that it doesn't have? In any case, you can disable the welcome screen altogether by "changing the way users log on and off" in the control panel's Users and passwords applet.

Well that was useless. The only thing you see on the welcome screen besides your picture and user name in ANY situation is the number of emails you have pending. If this is not what you want (administrator not showing up, etc) you can change all this behaviour in the user accounts applet.

Maybe your computer thinks it's better to start off separately and come into closer interaction only when your friends start talking to one another about you?
In any case, where did this new stuff come from if it's acting so mum? Is it truly generic to PC Desktops? Can you perhaps link to a picture of the screen it does give?
Just go get started though, I'm guessing Lady Cobblerton with the candlestick in the Sitting Room.

Hello sir, if your hard drive and video card is new for now, then maybe your memory card is not enough for your PC. And please try to check the processor because I encountered some problems like that.

Hellou i don' know is it a motherboard or drivers but it crushes down every now and then and blue screen appears. i have to start it up manually, it doesn't restart automatically. it's 3 years in use....


Windows Blue screens are almost always Due to bad drivers If you provide the File name that is usually stated in the blue screen i can provide more information.

If you have just installed new hardware be sure to install the Drivers that came with the hard ware on the manufacturers CD.

Reinstalling drivers might clear up the Blue screens

How can I repin a hard drive so I can download information?


I've actually had a Hard Drive running with a missing pin. However, somewhere along the line it will give blue screen errors, but atleast may give you enought time to get what you can off it.

Windows xp desktop boot problem


Hi utility,

Try this, it may work for you. What I’m going to suggest is entering the DOS environment and making necessary changes to get your pc up and running.

- Reboot> At reboot watch for DOS screen option “enter setup” via a F button option. You have to watch closely because on some pc’s this option goes by quick, so be ready to act. Once in the DOS environment navigate to “boot options” choose safe mode . Save changes and exit. When your os is up go immediately to system restore: Click Start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Choose a date before your issue arose.>click next/continue and wait for system to restore. Reboot, and enter DOS environment once more and go to boot options and choose “Normal boot”>save changes and exit and you should be done. I hope this helped or at least gave you some ideas for further investigation.

No rights to run control panel requires new instal need media


1. to gain rights do the following.

The built-in Administrator account is hidden from Welcome Screen when a user account with Administrator privileges exists and enabled. In Windows XP Home Edition, you can login as built-in Administrator in Safe Mode only. For XP Professional, press CTRL + ALT + DEL twice at the Welcome Screen and input your Administrator password in the classic logon window that appears.
To have the Administrator account displayed in the Welcome Screen, try one of these methods:
Method 1: Using TweakUI Power Toy for Windows XP Download TweakUI from here: v2.00 for Windows XP | v2.10 for XP SP1 and above
Open TweakUI and click "Logon" option in the left pane. Put a checkmark against the option "Show Administrator on Welcome Screen". Click OK to close TweakUI. Logoff and see if Welcome Screen lists Administrator login. Changes are immediate and you can use the Winkey + L to switch back to Welcome Screen to see Administrator account is listed.
Use this procedure to hide/unhide any user account from the Welcome Screen. Please remember, you can still login to a hidden account using CTRL+ALT+DEL classic logon method, but cannot Fast User Switch to a hidden user account.
Method 2 - Manual registry edit
  • Click Start, Run and type Regedit.exe
  • Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon \ SpecialAccounts \ UserList
  • Use the File, Export option to backup the key
  • Create a new DWORD Value named Administrator
  • Double-click Administrator, and set 1 as its data
  • Exit the Registry Editor.
For Windows XP Home Edition While you can configure Windows XP Home Edition to show Administrator account in the Welcome Screen, you cannot login as Administrator in Normal mode. Visit the following link for more information:

I can't access to the welcome screen. It talks about some kind of hard drive. What I don't know is how to get past the blackscreen with codes at the start. One of the problem causers is the frequent use of...


If you are unable to access your welcome screen, and it is giving you a hard drive related error, it may be possible either your operating system is corrupt or your hard drive has failed. If you have already tried your recovery disc, your hard drive itself may be at fault.

First, verify that there are no discs in any drives, such as floppy or CD and then try to turn your computer on. If you cannot get to your welcome screen and you get an error about your hard drive, try using your recovery discs. If that doesn't work, you most likely have a faulty piece of hardware in your system, most likely your hard drive.
