Can't log in windows vista

Hello,
I have problem with login in my Dell laptop with windows Vista. The problem is when i log in , then walk way, it'll lock up by itself. That's normal. The problem is when i enter my user ID and password, then hit enter or click the arrow to log in, it won't do anything. I had to hold the power button to shut it down then log back in then it worked. Please help, thank you very much, any help would be very appreciated. Thanks.

    I can't get into windows vista. when i power on the laptop it goes to screen that says test, i click on test it says logging off but then goes right back to the same screen. The only thing it will let me do is to log off or shutdown. i tried going through dos mode but that didnt work either. i just recently had the motherboard replaced by hp under warranty but i had to pay 50 bucks to talk to a technician. now they want to charge me another 50 bucks to talk to a tech about this problem. i have only had my laptop back for 1 week.

    i agree, the windows repair definitely will fix the problem. but i fixed my problem by do the " sfc \scannow" in the Run command. you'll need the windows Vista CD in the cd-rom though. this command will restore all the system files back to it original state. All the files and application won't be affected by this . So it's safe to run this first before doing the windows repair.

Go into the power settings and disable the password prompt when resuming from standby. If you want it to prompt for the password then restart the machine and enable it. This should clear up the glitch. If it doesn't, then you can try either a system restore or a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the restore doesn't fix it, the repair definitely will.

SOURCE: there is no room to enter a domain.

Hi,
I'm assuming that the operating system is XP.

Log in to your account as you usually would. Right click on My Computer and select Properties from the list. Click on the Computer Name tab. Where it says "To rename this computer or join a domain" click on change. A new window will pop up so click on Workgroup. In the typing plane if it say's MSHOME, delete that and type WORKGROUP make sure you type it in uppercase (capital letters).
When you've done that click OK.
The computer will tell you that you have to restart the computer for the changes to take effect so please restart the computer.

Once the computer has restarted you can check if the domain has changed to WORKGROUP.

Please post back if you need anymore help.

Regards.

How to unlock my dell laptop

You have to reset the PC and while booting press F8 until the OS menu shows up, choose start safe mode. When you reach the Login part you will be able to login as an administrator, while you are logged in as Admin change your user password.
Word of advice, change to Windows XP or Windows 7 because Vista is the worst OS I saw. Cheers

If you are using Window's XP or later the problem is probably the account you are logged into doesn't have "administrative access". You will have to log into the administrative account to make network changes.

If you are running Vista the default administrative account is hidden. To access it do the following: First you’ll need to open a command prompt in administrator mode by right-clicking and choosing “Run as administrator” (or use the Ctrl+Shift+Enter shortcut from the search box)

Now type the following command :
net user administrator /active:yes

You should see a message that the command completed successfully. Log out, and you’ll now see the Administrator account as a choice. (Note that the screenshots are from Vista, but this works on Windows 7)

You’ll note that there’s no password for this account, so if you want to leave it enabled you should change the password.
Disable Built-in Administrator Account
Make sure you are logged on as your regular user account, and then open an administrator mode command prompt as above. Type the following command:
net user administrator /active:no

The administrator account will now be disabled, and shouldn’t show up on the login screen anymore.

Forgot asus laptop password Windows vista


Forgetting your Windows administrator login password. With no way to get into the system, you can’t even perform basic maintenance, let alone a thorough tune-up. Formatting is always an option, but we consider that a last resort. (Plus, guess who’s going to have to help reinstall all the programs lost after a wipe?) But all hope is not lost. There are a few ways to actually retrieve a lost Windows account password. Read on, and we’ll show you the light.

1st Method:
The first thing which you check if you forget login password. When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account "Administrator" and sets its password to blank. So if you have forget your user account password then try this:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.

2th Method:
There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but we’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
Windows Password Recovery Tool is one of the easiest password recovery tools to use. It allows you to reset a user account password, including the Administrator password. It is also a relatively small download.
