I recently changed my .net framework to my computer administrator and my user
account to limited account and when i turn on my computer it only shows my
User account which only has limited access and I can't do anything about it.
How can i change back my .net framework to limited and user back to computer
administrator again?

You do need to wait more than 10 minutes for a reply...reposting just pisses
people off and noone will answer.
Reboot into safe mode.....F8 at startup
enter as the administrator
change your limited back to an admin account

Pretty funny "peterk"! I knew Windows 98 inside and out, so I can understand
how frustrating WindowsXP can be! I have no clue as to how to fix my new
computer system, and it has been back to the service department twice in one
month..... supposedly they did a complete re-install both times, but I still
can't work the stupid thing! Anyone know where to get a new motherboard for
my old Windows98 PB??

Maybe you should explain the problems you are having on a help site like
this and someone will reply with the solution.
I cant tell if your the person who send "AAAAAAAAA" but to me that is not a
question.
There are also numerous Books out on how to use XP and lots and lots of
websites that have detailed information on XP.
A Google search of XP turn up a huge amount of sites.....by adding a word
after XP..eg XP Help you will get a more detailed
list of helpful sites.

almost forgot
Motherboards go by form factors and socket type.MoBo do not hold an
operating system....the HD does.
Almost any MOBO will work with the old 98 operating system.You just have to
determine what type you have and find the appropriate replacement that would
hold your present processor and fit into your present case.
XP is a different animal....it does not work on the same underlying
structure as 98 but again most older(depends how old) mobo would work with
XP.A Bios upgrade might be required and some of the original drivers would
most certainly need to be upgraded to XP drivers.
The XP website has the minimum requirements needed for a semi smooth
operation of XP...double the min amount of ram required and XP will hum
along quite nicely.
Again I urge you to post your specific problems for specific help

Hey Peterk! No, I wasn't the one with the alphabet problems, but that
doesn't matter! Thanks for the info regarding the MoBo for my old computer,
maybe I can get the two computers running and be set for life!

My problems with the new computer lies with the CD/DVD drives/writer. The
computer suddenly lost the ability to 'burn' DVDs that were readable by ANY
device, even the computer itself. It does not recognize an empty disc
either, and keeps asking for one. My computer is an HP Pavilion a720n, using
the recording program Sonic RecordNow and WinDVD. The DVD writer is a
Philips DVD8421, by looking at the system info, and the salesman told me to
use DVD+R discs. The other funny thing about this, is that for some reason
this all started when I used a Sony DVD to record, then everything went to
the dogs!! (gift certificate, sorry). The drive is dual layer capable, and I
am using single layer DVDs to record, so I can't see where the problem is.
I've looked at the system Bios, and have about 50 bios files that mostly say
they are 'not recognized extensions', so I don't have a clue what to do
there. I would be exstatic if someone could figure this out, I feel kind of
'dumb' on this system, whereas before I could fix anything for everyone else!

The first website lista all of the updates available for your computer.
The 2nd website is the troubleshooter for XP with DVD problems
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?dlc=en&...


http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q308012

To Flash a BIOS is possible...lots of people do it but it can be
dangerous.If not done right you can do irreversible damage to your
computer.The following site has detailed instructions for your system.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericDocument?dlc=...
If you are going to do this print them out so you can follow them carefully


Sometimes the simple act of removing the DVD under Device Manager and
rebooting,letting XP redect the drive solves problems.
hope this helps
peter

Thanks peterk! I'll check out the sites, and do some on-line reading 'in my
spare time' LOL! Oh well, I'll get the hang of this system too, I guess.
Just takes some time and getting used to. Appreciate your help though.
