    Hello everyone.

    I am running windows xp pro on a dell latitude d410, and have a problem. It is similar to a previous post, which was not answered.

    Okay, so I went into msconfig and selected safe mode under boot.ini. Now my computer starts in safe mode, but windows doesn't recognize my regular username and pw! (admin doesn't work either) I believe the problem comes from the fact that I cannot select a domain to log into. So when I restart windows, I hold F5 to select start up modes. I've tried normal mode, and every other mode, but it still starts in safemode. Needless to say, I can't get into windows to uncheck the safemode option under boot.ini.

    Does anyone have any advice? Besides reformatting? Maybe a way to access boot.ini without logging into windows?

    Thanks,

    Albert
