Keeps rebooting automatically ant LOG IN

October 20, 2009 at 11:35:43
Specs: Windows XP Pro service pack 2
my pc keeps rebooting when i input my admin password. I've tried to start in safe mode and it wont let me. Ive also tried to run the recovery console by booting from my xp cd disk, it asks me to select the windows which i select "1", i then input my admin password but it wont accept it saying its wrong.

I'm completley baffled on why it wont let me run the recovery process when inputting my password which i know is 100% right.

I've been given a few instructions by friends which could resolve some matters but the main problem is that i CAN'T log in to try them ., any help will be greatly appreciated , im close to crying and it's making me re-think my life and next steps forward and what i should do next , lol.

did you try removing your bios battery and then putting it back in? That should reset the bios

yes, open the case and you will see a battery almost the size of a nickel, that's the bios battery

ive just taken it out whilst the computer was off, left it for 5 mins. i put it back in and when i booted it up it gave me a choice F2 to run set up of bios or F1 to reset to default.

I reset it to default , the pc then rebooted and went to windows screen so i tried to input the password..no luck. I've then tried to boot from the xp disk and the recovery console and input my admin password...still no luck.

I might try it again and go down the F2 route, where it said set-up, im just afraid of deleting any data or completley wrecking the HD.

nightmare

when you remove the battery, it will reset the password to blank
You just have to click enter (DON'T PUT IN YOUR PASSWORD)

i did try that, not inputting a password. didnt work.

i found this link after your advice, it talks about retrieving passwords at the front screen using CMD, i cant even get into that.
