Hi,

My brother switched his PC on yesterday and it came to his logon screen. He put in his passwork and it says he is unable to log on to the system.
It sasy to check password is correct, which he says it is, but he is still not able to get any further.
He has tried everything (i.e caps lock, num lock) but to no avail.

Can anyone advise on what can be done.?
Thanks!

It is best to start everything over again, e.g. re-type username & password not just the password.

If that doesn't work try rebooting the system.

Thanks for the response, but is there no other way?
This looks slightly complicated and i dont want to mess anything up.

Any help?

Try logging into windows in safe mode (keep pressing F8 after you swith on) then see if you can get to control panel and then user accounts and reset the password.

It still brings up logon screen in safe mode?!
