Windows XP...can't log into admin account ~ wrong language
by geebiesmommy - 11/30/12 10:02 AM
I have a computer that runs XP. It was purchased in Quebec so all the keys have english and arabic lettering accordingly. Sometimes it writes in arabic and shows others writing in the same in chat rooms. This is an off and on thing. Now it won't let me log into my admin account. I am guessing that it is stuck on arabic because when I type a "b" it gives 2 "*" astrics not just one. So now I can't get into my system. How do I get? I would really like to keep what is on the computer, but will deal if I can just whip it and be done. I tried safe mode, but it takes me straight to the log in screen again and still won't work. I have rebooted many times while troubleshooting...no help. The last time I fixed this I had a 2nd account that did not have a password and was able to change to english once in windows. But my son put a password with talking to me and the 2nd one is now password protected and won't accept the english password .
Thank you in advance for any help.
PS...This is a tiny laptop. Does not have a CD rom nor do I have the XP CD. The package it came in doesnt seem to have one in it .
