I am using windows XP as my operating system. I also used a password. I logged off my computer and when I logged in, it requires me to enter my password. I entered my password but it does not open. But when I restarted my computer again,  it showed that my password is correct. How can I solve it?

Since you had clicked on the remember password and your computer remembers it when you start up your computer, there really is no need to even have a password.  Already, if there are multiple users on your computer then they can log in easily. If you would like the added protection, then you need to change your password and make sure the computer is not going to remember. You can do this one of two ways:

  • CTRL + ALT + DEL = Change a Password
  • Control Panel –> User Accounts –> Change Password

You have to put in your old password and then your new password.  If you cannot remember the correct spelling of your old password, restart your computer and copy the password from that log in by highlighting and then going to change password and pasting it into the password field. 

Make certain your spelling is accurate. To remove a password, go to control panel and user accounts and take off the password then just click on enter. If you cannot get your password to change this way you will have to go to a computer store and have them reset the password.

Hi, how much frequent time it happens, if it happened only one time, then forget it. If again and again it’s happening, then change your password, if it does not help, then create new user account form control panel. If it also not works then reinstall windows.

Passwords used to log into Microsoft Windows are case sensitive. That’s why every time you log in, you need to check if the Caps Lock is on or off because this will change the case of the letters you enter when you login. When your user account is password-protected and you log off, you need to enter your password again the next time you login.

But if after logging off the password you entered was not accepted when you log in back, check if Caps Lock is turned on. Check the Caps Lock LED indicator on the right side of the keyboard if it is activated. If the LED is activated, press the Caps Lock button to deactivate it or turn it off. Try entering the password again then log in.
