Hi

I am using windows XP Pro CD to bring a Laptop back to life. I booted it with the CD.  I  went head upto load windows screen.  There I chose Repair option.  It started to load files.  Now this message "When trying to update a password the return status indicates that the value provided as the current password is not correct" comes. I spent a lot of time on this I really appreciate if some one can help me.  Thanks.
