well i was reformatting my computer i THINK everything went ok but it had one error while reformatting but i press ok and it went on.

anyways my computer has a built in windows xp so i went to system recovery to reformat. once the reformat was done i was sent to a screen where it tells me to input a name for my computer, timezone, language, etc etc. and on the screen that says your finished! and press next to end to finish the process, the problem is that when i press the end button my computer seems to be loading something..but quite a long time approx 1hr but yet it doesnt load windows.

so i rebooted my computer and ran it in safe mode, then it says on the top left lsass.exe and the message was "when trying to update a password the return status indicates that the value provided as the current password is not correct."
now it keeps saying that whenever i reboot.

and i dont have a system restore cd -.-..
so anyone help? greatly appreciated

What kind of computer is it? Often the F11 at bootup will offer a recovery screen.
