    I have had a system password for a long time on my Dell Dimension 2400 deskto with Windows XP. For some reason this morning I entered the password but I get the message: the system could not log you on. Make sure your user name and domain are correct then type your password again. etc

    I am sure I am using the correct password. I have gone into the system set up. I have disabled the system password but when I try to log on I am still asked for the password and get the same error message as stated above. I have tried removing and replacing the bios battery but this did not help.

    I would greatly appreciate any help.

    Please see the TSG Rules, we no longer provide any help with lost passwords or getting around password protection. Obviously, we can't determine the real intent here, so our policy is to abstain from any assistance in these matters.
