***This troubleshooting guide is meant to help u guys fix OS related problems. Working as a part of a Technical Support team helped me learn a couple of new things. So here I am again after a veeery veeeery long time of abandoning my website. I'm back to give you guys a different kind of update. It ain't a tweaking guide that I know, but should keep u tweaking even after experiencing crappy problems with your computer.
 
**Try to visit this page every once in a while. I will be adding up a couple of new things here every once in a while. I may even add up a couple of new things for portables, which I didn't even have a clue how to operate before because I haven't had the pleasure of having one.
 
*On the down side, this page may be the only page that I will be updating for another long span of time. Sorry guys, I'm pretty busy right now. I barely have enough time to sleep. And I believe I have already posted all my "tweaking" knowledge on the other sections of this website, which is still a good thing ... right?
















 
 
Forgot ur WinXP Password?!
 
Step 1: Grab and boot-up ur computer using the WinXP disc.
Step 2: Select "Enter" at the Welcome to Windows screen. Followed by "F8" on the next screen to accept the EULA.
Step 3: Select "R" to repair ur current installation of Windows (system will do its thing and restart the computer).
Step 4: After restart, keep an eye at the lower left portion of ur screen. When the Installing Devices appear, immediately tap on Shift+F10.
Step 5: At the prompt type in: control userpasswords2. When a window opens up, remove the check mark to log without asking for windows password.
Step 6: Write down ur next password on a sheet of paper and remember where u store it ... lol!

**Simply hit "Y" followed by "enter" everytime it asks you if you want to overwrite/replace the files.
 
Step 9: Type: "exit" to restart your computer.
