    Hi. I have been using my acer laptop running windows xp professional for about 4 years. Suddenly when I turn it on I am asked for a password. I have never had a password for this computer. I can't get past this page my only options are to restart, shutdown, hibernation etc. Where has this come from, amd most importantly how do I fix it? Any help would be great.:eek:

    Hi,
    Press F8 when u start the laptop, go to Safe mode with N/w, Login into administrator account, Click on the Control panel, Go to User Accounts, check whether there is any Password is enabled, if so, ClicK on the Remove the Password, Restart the system check whether it is working.
