no password login will work

Posted: 10-02-2008, 01:41 AM

Here is one I have not seen explained. I can create a new user accoun
and assign a password then when I log out and attempt to log into th
new account with the password, it says the password is wrong. I ca
however use that account name if it is an admin to edit things tha
require admin privelages from another user account using the password
originally assigned. I know the password of the original admin and i
also works when doing things requiring admin privelages but I can'
login to that one either. The only login that works is one not requirin
a password. My machine is setup to automatically login to a user accoun
w/o password right now
Help

See if you can activate the account to see if you trouble shoot.

You can also burn a copy of Ultimate boot CD, boot off of it, use the
utility to reset psw for existing accounts. You should get the Vista
version.

Is this account on a workgroup or Domain? Are your TCP/IP values correct for
the network? If it is a Domain, then check your logs for logon errors, check
FSMO roles. Check DNS, make sure the device is properly registered and ADUC
to make sure the node is recognized on the domain.

The PC is a member of a workgroup but why would that mess up user login?
I am working directly on the machine here.
