Repairs are impossible without your own license and copy of Windows 2000. Microsoft is more than happy to replace your lost media for 20 to 30 bucks. Cheap compared to a full retail box copy.
In closing, if you don't own or have rights to this OS, please do not ask for help in Cnet forums since its a rules violation.
Hi all, new here, stumbled across this forum by accident. Glad I did. I have a problem and am hoping here, that someone can resolve it for me.
My friend has a "shop built" system running Win2000NT.
The problem is, the shop has:
1) Not supplied a recovery CD/Floppy
2) Not supplied a password.
I have investigated a source of "password changer" at password.com nad have followed the instructions.
Talking her through it on the fone, we seemed to be getting somewhere when after booting with the made floppy from download.com it gave options for drive searches.
After selecting "logical drives" It brough up "username=administrator" and password="blank"
It then asked do you want to change the admin password. I entered yes, and it then said, your password has been changed.
On reboot (without the disc in) windows loaded and the log in box appeared as normal with a small error box underneath saying about a kernell32.dl file could not be found. Click ok to ressume log in.
Logging in as administrator and a blank password still cannot access the desktop?
Has anyone any ideas how to overcome this problem?
