How To Reset Or Change The Password On Windows Nt ?

I tried to reset the login password on my windows nt, and something went wrong. Now i cant log on at all. ? How can i reset or change the password? It won't accept the original password. I've read about using a password reset disc. Is this something that has to be bought or is it just a blank cd or dvd? Also, when i follow my computer's prompts to use the recovery disc, it only gives me the choice of using drive g h or i my computer doesn't have those drives. I only have cd / dvd drives. Thanks for any help.

Monitor Contrast Ratio

I'm looking into buying a new wide screen lcd. I want a 19'-22' screen, and i've noticed that the contrast ratio varies on different models and is somewhat higher on the cheaper smaller screens. Would a 700:1 contrast ratio be good on a 22' screen? I'm looking at a samsung 226bw to be exact.

Windows 7 Laptop Cant Connect To Network

Why cant a windows 7 laptop connect to my network? My girlfriend has an acer laptop with the following:

Atheros ar5b93
Driver version 8. 0. 0. 225
Driver date 9/21/2009
Windows 7 home premium 64bit

She is able to connect to her home network, which runs without any security. My home network has the following security protocols in place:

Don't broadcast ssid
Mac filtering
Wpa personal tkip

I've been able to connect to my wifi from my own laptops, and they run one version of linux or another. Is there a problem with the atheros drivers? Is it possible that her laptop has issues with those security measures?

Windows 7 - Flickering Screen Problem On Laptop

I have new asus laptop with intel 4500mhd graphics card and recently have some problems with screen under windows 7 64bit. I was messing with color calibration and i get back to standard calibration, but now, when i switch windows/panels/anything (for example from bright to dark color) screen is messing colors - it's hard to describe, i see the pixels are moving for 1 sec. Sometimes it looks similar to changing brightness of screen. When i open picture with gradient i see pixels (colors) are "moving" and after 1 second it stops. I don't think it's graphic card related because under linux everything looks fine.

Laptop Won't Load Windows Xp

Yesterday i dropped my laptop (ah!) On a hardwood floor. I have a toshiba satellite m100/m105. As soon as it dropped the screen went black and basically the power to it went out. This worried me, but then i just pressed the power button on the computer and it restarted and seemed to work fine! Until i restarted my computer again today because the internet was locked up. Anyway, so i restarted and a black screen came up that said windows was unable to load correctly and to run windows as normal, run in safe mode, run how it was run last time it run correctly, etc. And i chose each of these options at least once and each time it brought me back to the same black screen. I'm not sure if it is a software or hardware issue or if it even has anything to do with me dropping my laptop yesterday. Does any one know what i should do? Should i check to see if it's hardware related before i run a system repair? Should i bring it in to a professional and have them look to see if it's a hardware problem or is there a way i could check for "lose connections"?

Problem Connecting Network Printer To Windows 7 Laptop?

I have recently purchased an hp g61 notebook, and i have been getting it set up. I want to set up my laptop to be able to print off the main printer in my office which is a lexmark z600 series. I have went to the computer (the main computer/host) and set up a network. I made sure that the printers were one of the items shared on this network. I went to my laptop, joined the network i had created, and proceeded to adding the printer. My computer showed the printer and when i clicked the next button it said that it was unable to find a driver for it. Which confuses me in that i had installed one on my lap top before i tried adding it. I manually searched and found nothing. The cd i had for the printer is from my xp, which is the host computer. I am thinking that it runs on a 32 bit os and my computer is a 64 bit os. Any ideas on how i can get this dam thing to work?

Compaq Laptop Giving Error 43 With Usb Devices In Windows 7

Usb nightmares - error 43 proving unsolvable.got my compaq laptop around 6 months ago and i haven't had a problem with it. Recently however the usbs began to malfunction, it would take me multiple tries to get them to work sometimes, and other times they would work instantly. They have gotten worse and worse until now one of them doesn't recognize anything has been plugged in at all, whilst the other gives an error message in the bottom right corner which states "usb device not recognized". After further exploring this message i find that this is because of "error message 43" which tells me that the device plugged in has malfunctioned. I do not believe this is true. I tried multiple different usb devices (ipods, flash drives, usb mouses and keyboards to name a few) all of which definitely work, as i have tried them on my desktop. My pc has no virus. The device manager assures me that all of the devices are working, and all drivers are up to date. The lap top has taken no damage. The pc can not be restored to a previous time to make it work (indeed it has already been reset to factory setting with no joy) i have followed multiple online tutorials, found on the ms website, one of which involved editing the registry, which caused my laptop to not boot until i had run the system repair tool. I am getting seriously weary of all of this, i just want my usbs to work as they should, especially on such a relatively new pc. If anyone knows how to solve this, or believes they may be able to if i provide additional information, please leave a response. Additional information, i am on 64bit windows 7.

Recover Files From Laptop Hard Drive With Windows 2000

Boss at work has managed to crash his laptop and of course has not done a backup in 3 years, now he wants me to try and recover some of his files. This is a windows 2000 system and what it is doing is coming up with the following message on boot up. A disk read error occurred
Press ctrl+alt+del to restart

Now i thought maybe the system files where corrupted, we got one of these fix your disk programs and tried running it, it says that both the partition table and boot sector are ok so no joy there, had a look on this forum and found a thread with link to ntfs4dos and ran that, it says the nt ntfs partition is not initialized. Finally tried coping on the system files again using the windows 2000 repair option still no joy. Does anyone have any other ideas i can try, can i some how link the hard drive via a converter cable to my desk top (maybe a stupid question, but hay i'm clutching at straws), or do i just send it back and tell him that it will cost 350 to get the files and here is an essay on the virtues of keeping backups. (Probably won't do last bit as end up getting fired).

"That i was trying to send an email to my instructor and a pop up said that the computer was under attack and i clicked the link and paid 50 bucks for it" and i said "are you sure it isn't a scam, that has happened to me before but i knew it was just a trick why didn't you call if it when this occurred" and she said that she got scared. So this morning i looked up to find that it actually was a scam and now we are stuck with this crap on our computer, she knows not to do anything security wise on the computer, i have never heard of this program and i want it off now! Can someone please help me find a way to get it off of my computer, and where are places where i can take my laptop to get cleaned of the viruses.
