Please help if possible. I can't get XP to run. Here's what happened: This is
a networked computer. I ran msconfig and set my computer to open in Safe
Mode. Now, when it asks for my Windows password, it says either the user name
or password is incorrect, which they aren't. (Can't see the network.)

Hi Connie,

Try hitting F8 at boot to get the menu, then try Safe mode with networking.
This system is on a domain, yes? If so, then without domain access, the user
may not be recognized. You might try logging into the local machine (not the
domain) as administrator.

You select Safe Mode with Networking:
It includes the services and drivers needed for network connectivity.
Safe mode with networking enables logging on to the network, logon
scripts, security, and Group Policy settings. Nonessential services and
startup programs not related to networking do not run.

Thank you. I have tried Safe Mode with Networking, but that still isn't
working. Also, signing in as Administrator, isn't working because I don't
know the password. If you have any other suggestions, I'd be grateful.
