I have been lumbering under the assumption this is a domain/workgroup problem but maybe it is not--maybe it is a corrupt profile after all


Whether you can log in or not, you can download an iso image from the site referenced above, and burn it to a CD, and boot to it....you do not need an external floppy.

Additionally, it may not be possible to run the external floppy off a usb port on this machine, depending on whether it supports legacy usb

Do you know how to burn an image?

I tried burning an ISO image but I probably did something wrong because in the past I have only burned cdr's, cdw's, and dvd's but not with an iso image. I would very much appreciate any help you could give me in this.

You need to burn this image to a CD and boot your computer with it--this is different than burning a file to a CD. If you do not know how to burn an ISO image, then download the following program to another Windows XP machine, install it.

make certain you download the proper installation for your version of windows

After installation, right click the iso file you downloaded above and choose COPY IMAGE TO CD.

Then reboot your broken PC with that CD in the CD-ROM drive and follow the prompts.

Hi Angie,
Sorry for being this late.. can you please try to go to BIOS & make your floppy first in booting Sequence.
Then try to put the floppy for resetting the password as Dr. Jae said.

Acually i had similar problem, but in XP. What i did is resetting the password by a secutiry floppy.

this is a site that may help creating a cd or floppy:
Change Password

I don't know who you are but you have me in tears, good tears. It worked, it actually worked. I am back in the computer. Between your program and the program I had downloaded before, I can again use the computer. Thank you so very, very much. I appreciate what you did for me. I also appreciate everyone else who tried to help me. Maybe this thread can help someone else, too. Angie :tazz:

Glad to hear it. Big credit to Wanabee and others, since I was leaning a different way and it was they who correctly diagnosed the issue
