Locked

Start up problems

By wrecker69 ·
I am running Widows XP Home edition and some times when I start up the computer I get a dialogue box telling me that the computer is locked and asking me for a username and a password. I do not remember setting it up this way. When I try to enter a username and password anyway all it does is beep. If I shut down and restart it does not happen. Why does it happen periodicly and how can I fix this problem from happening again?

Suspended to disk

It sounds like your computer is sometimes just suspended to disk when you think it is powered off. You could always disable the suspend to disk function.

Thanks for the reply. You will have to bare with me. Ya you guessed it, I am a n-n-n-newbie. Could you clarify the suspend to disk function for me? Thanks
