I'd suggest booting into Safe Mode (press F8 after the POST information is finished on bootup) and then you should see an option for Administrator. If you can sign in successfully there, go to Control Panel and create a new account under User Accounts. Boot normally after that and see if you can sign in the new account.

Two questions: 1) is this XP or Vista? and 2) did you recently make any significant changes to the software (namely try to change the Certificate of Authenticity)? If what I suggested works, I'd say boot into Safe Mode again and then run System Restore for Windows. Set the system back to about a week ago and try logging in normally.

I lock my computer a for got the pass code.


Hello,

If You are using a windows XP, the solution is for You to turn on the laptop allow it booth, once it gets to the log in page, press the ctrl+alt+delete button, then a page will come up, You will have the page where You will have to enter the user name and the password, just type Administrator in the user name and leave the password blank and press enter or log in, it will log in for You, there You can access the user profile and change the password through the control panel.

If You are using the windows vista, then when You get to the log in page, then You press the control+alt+delete button, then You select start new task, then the computer will log in with a neutral profile, after it has one that, then You can go to the control panel and change the password for the user profile You used to lock the password.

Hope this helped.

Thank You for using FixYa

I bought an Acer netbook and my daughter wants a larger laptop. I can't remove her name. She signed on and dowloaded windows XP. Is there a way to remove her as administrator. I bought it from a small...


Go to control panel > user accounts > create new user > name the new user something like "PC User" make the account type administrator and hit apply, log out....then log back in under the PC User name. When you are ready, delete the account that has your daughters name. It is in the same drop down menu as you were in to create a new account.

Turn on computer comes up to windows page with no pass words


It sounds like it might be getting to the user accounts and not being able to log in. I would start by going into safe mode--> Right before the windows splash screen comes up, start pressing the f8 key. Then when it gives options, choose safe mode. If it gets to the user screen this means its either something in your startup, or the user account files.

Once in safe mode, you can select the administrator account, and create a new user account, to see if you reboot to normal mode and it lets you log in as the other user.

Reboot is in a loop and c drive is corrupt


I had this same problem on a machine that was brought in for me to repair. After removing a lot of spyware, the machine started logging out immediately after logging on. Here's how I fixed it: First: I used the XP CD to boot to the recovery console("R" at the first prompt). From there, I ran chkdsk /r c: to fix problems on the hard drive. There were plenty. Second: I rebooted to the XP CD to repair the installation of Windows XP. Do not use the "R" Recovery Console this time. Instead go through as if you are going to reinstall afresh and when it detects the current installation, choose the option to repair it. That corrected the problem. It seemed to be an issue with errors on the hard drive related to corrupted user profiles because I could not log in with any account. Hope this helps.

Acer Aspire 5100 will not log on


If you have a Finger Print scanner (on select models), it may have failed, if you do not have this device , you may have installed malware - try rebooting and after you see the Acer screen start tapping F8 to get to speacial boot menu - choose Safe Mode and see if you can log in. If still unable, you will have to perform a system recovery - Acer provides an alternate way to recover - when you start the computer you see the Acer logo screen - after this displays hold down the Alt Key by the spacebar and tap the F10 key at the top of the keyboard once or twice - this will start the Acer E-Recovery program - follow the on screen instructions.
