"This computer is configured to require a password in order to start up. Please enter the startup password below." Hi im in the dumps. Iong story short, I gullably fell into the microsoft tech trap. my ISP told me not to reset/turn off the comp but the house electricity caved in and its 2.30 in the morning and I got an assessment which I typed up but havnt sent. now im scared as all hell. is there any immediate response I can get from you guys to cure it. I was brought here by google by a guy with same problem. As far as I know the computer is a Desktop running Windows7 Motherboard I believe is p5n32-e SLI but that is pretty much as knowledgable as I get about harddware.
