How do i fix a Windows Vista Ultimate logon problem?

By jenkins1616 ·
I have a dell studio 1535 laptop with windows vista ultimate on it and when i start it it seems to load fine but when i type in my password it says either the user name or password is wrong, i know its not the user name because i am the only user. I have tried literally everything that i know how to do. Can someone help me?

Can we help you reset the password? No.

All I can suggest is to make sure you are entering both username and password exactly as you had created them. If you never set them, leave them blank. Do not forget that the password is <b>case sensitive</b>!

1. Format the harddisk.
2. Install DD-WRT (I know, it's typically used for wireless routers, but may be worth trying.

If install is successful, then user is "root" and password "admin".

The Scummy One would give advice which, if followed diligently, you could <i>feel</i> it working.
