    :mad: Hi I hope someone can help me. I upgraded a driver for the video card in Windows XP and then the display on the screen wasn't even readable. I knew this was a driver problem. However there was nothing I could do unless the hard drive was formatted. So there wasn't anyway I could format hard driver from unreadable computer screen. I put my old Windows 98SE installation floppy and Windows 98SE CD. The hard drive was formatted. Windows 98SE was installed. Then I put a Windows XP Pro CD and installed Windows XP Pro.
    However, somehow the first login interface screen is different than before. It looks like Windows 2000 where you type your user ID in login box and passwords in the password box. How can I set up the login interface where you can just click on your own picture and type password or no password for guest.

    Start => Control Panel => User Accounts => User Accounts =>Change the way users log on or off => Make sure 'Use the Welcome Screen' is checked.
