Hi all. Sorry if this q has been asked many times before, but I don't know what my admin pwd is when the Recovery Console is activated via the XP CD-ROM. I've tried the admin pwd for my main XP account, leaving it blank, 'adminadmin' as someone suggested. Nothing works.

Can anyone suggest a way to get past of this please? My PC is toasted at the mo, and I need to get some music written fast!!!

Thanks to any suggestions I receive.

What ever your password was when you first installed the OS, is the password it is looking for.

Perhaps, it might be easier if you just explained the problem and we may be able to provide you a simpler solution !!!

Actually, I think I've fixed it. I was able to log in using an old 98 partition I have on the machine. It appears that the boot sector was corrupted, along with the PC hanging when loading the agp440.sys driver. In 98--> My Computer, my XP partition just had loads of garbled information, so Doctor Format came out to play and I just re-installed XP. Thanks for replying though!
