Log in to XP

By kjleitch ·
I have a Dell latitude laptop without an internal floppy drive. I have set the security on my laptop to be too secure. Now I can't log on to my laptop. I need to bypass the logon screen to get to DOS. HOW CAN i DO THIS WITHOUT GETTING THAT STUPID WELCOME SCREEN? which prevents me from going any further unless I supply the correct password for both the accounts I have setup. The password that I use is the correct one however XP does not recognize them and displays that error message "Did you forget your password" No I didn't because I used the same one for both accounts.

check out Microsoft's Knowledge base for answers...;en-us;321305&Product=winxp

Perhaps you should create a bootable cd(since you do not have a floppy drive) follow this link for the download...

First, there is NO DOS in Windows XP, unless you are on about the Recovery Console (press F8 to get the Safe Mode menu will help).
Also, passwords are case sensitive, so PASSWORD is different from password and different to Password. Turn off/on Caps Lock and try again.
