Reinstall XP.



DL the cd, burn to cd, and boot off boot menu. Takes 10mins or less. Never used it but I've heard MANY success stories.


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

If you boot into safe mode you can try to log into the built-in administrator account. I'm not sure if that's the one you have a password on, or if the admin account your trying to get into was made manually.
