Hi

Try this:

From Start>Run type in

control userpasswords2

then uncheck 'Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer' and click 'Apply'. On the next screen - 'Automatically Log On' - delete the name 'Administrator' from the User name box and enter your account name and then the password in the next two boxes. OK your way out and then reboot your system.

Or you can use Tweak UI:

You can download TweakUI from http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/downloads/powert... and when installed go to Programs>Powertoys for Windows XP>Tweak UI - then go to Logon>Autologon.

Hi

You will be better off contacting your Laptop supplier.
