Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I loaded xp service pack two when my computer was xp service pack one, now i'm locked out. I dont have the original service pack 1 cd!


Answers :

When you start your Computer press down on the F8 key repeatedly. Your options will come up, select option last time computer worked properly. If this does not work, try option safe mode. Once it loads up go to system restore and select the time before you loaded the update. Go to start at the bottom left of task bar, control panel, user accounts, select all of the user accounts and remove the password option. Now try the system update only from the microsoft site.

Just copy and paste. Let me know if this works, if not will try something else.
