HP Pavilion DV1000 admin login?

Q: HP Pavilion DV1000 admin login?

Hi all,

having successfully cleansed said laptop from various nasties, thanks in part to Kimsland and Bobbye, i have an issue with the admin login.

Ok, when booting up, xp is set to fast user switching and the welcome screen login screen with 4 user accounts, Administrator is not included in the list.
So i hit ctrl+alt+del (twice) which then brings up the secure login dialog box.
So i key in:
'Administrator' and the password that i set, and it comes up with:
"Unable to log you on because of an account restriction" WTF is that ?!?!?!
The only way i can log in as admin is to reboot into safe mode, when it presents itself as another user in the welcome screen list, giving 5 in total, which quite frankly is ridiculous.
The main reason the lappy was infected was due to uneducated users installing all kinds of crap as their accounts had admin rights.
I need to restrict them to 'limited accounts' whilst having full access to the admin account, without the need to reboot into safe mode.
I've google searched for answers but couldn't find any.
I'm looking for a way to solve this issue, so with respect please don't come back with workarounds like "press shift right-click 'run as..' kind of suggestions because i'm after full access to admin account without rebooting.

So, any help you can offer would be most appreciated, thanks

Preferred Solution: HP Pavilion DV1000 admin login?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I have tried to reset and press f-8 it sends me back to my profile icon, safe mode does the same and im locked out. i dont have internet acess excet my phone. i dont have a disc because it was purchased used. i need help to fina way in so i change my login and get my photos and music off..looking for backdoors... anything would be greatly appreciated.

A:hp dv1000 windows 7 professional os, locked out of admin account

How could you get locked out of your account? Don't you use the password regularly?

Use the DVD provided to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 with the licensed version. If under 4gb RAM use 32 bit, otherwise 64 bit.

There is a step there to rescue your files using the DVD or rescue disk.

Stick closely to the steps given and you'll end up with a perfect install, which you can then save as an image so you never have to reinstall again.

hey mates,
just got myself a free (loaded) hp pavilion dv1000.
reason it was free is because it won't start, won't accept power in any way, obviously i'll probably use it for parts, but i've seen a few posts about this being a common problem with dv1000s and that soldering the power linkup to the motherboard can correct this problem.
first question, has anyone done this successfully? or know someone that has.
and second question, if not, can anything think of something else that would cause this problem?

base history of the machine: (i don't have its exact specs beyond knowing that the original buyer loves desktop replacement quality laptops) original owner bought it, had problems with it occasionally shutting off without warning (hard shutdown) then eventually it just wouldnt start, no other known problems.

HP Pavilion dv1000 Special Edition Laptop

I'd like to get this system back to the excellent condition it was in when I purchased it almost 2 years ago. Having briefly returned it to its original owner, it came back loaded with bloatware and, I suspect, malware/viruses.

I can also practice on my own equipment worry-free and experience all of the tutorials and steps that were included to assist with my previous post, which I uncomfortably marked Solved just a moment ago.

I tried unsuccessfully to get a screenshot of the results of the Win 7 Upgrade Advisor for this laptop, but PrtScrn did not put anything onto the Clipboard for pasting into Paint, so I'll summarize the 4 results of the Advisor:

If it's feasible to perform a clean install, I'd like to try, though first I'd like to run Avira from my thumbdrive and include online ESET and Panda Cloud before anything else. Also SFC?

This is the first time I've tried this site so I hope I've got it right.
I purchased an Hp Pavilion dv1000 in January 2006. It's been a great little machine and I have had no complaints up until a few months ago. I use a mdi keyboard at a commercial level and travel around a lor so I use the portals pretty much daily. Seems that lately the portals have become loose. Firstly the rear right hand side and then next the front one. This pretty much corelates with the frequency of useage of these ports. I may be working away on a midi composition and then for what seems like no reason the keyboard will disconnect. The same thing happens with my 40 gig external hardrive. The problem there is that if I understand it rightly, this kind of abrupt disconnect with my hardrive can cause some damage and possible loss of data.

If only one of the portals was giving me problems then I would take it on the nose and try to work around it but now that the other one has gone I'm beginning to suspect it may be an inherent problem with Hp ports. My 12 month warrantee has lapsed now so I basically need to prove to Hp that this is a problem in their portal design and they may come to the party.

Has anyone else experinced this problem before with Hp Portals?

Hello all,

I tried upgrading Windows XP home edition to XP Professional on the pavilion dv1000 and run into some problems. Firstly, the upgrade did not succeed because the installation could not collect the required system information. I guessed that this was due to the drivers. When I tried rebooting into the home edition, I got a file missing error: \windows\system32\config\system.sav. Now I think I know what is happening: the sata controller is the problem.

A few questions:

1) was the sata controller drivers the reason why I could not upgrade to Windows Professional?

2) How can I recover my data ( is the only way by getting an external case and connecting the Sata HDD to it?)

3) How do I install XP without floppy to load the drivers. I am familiar with slipstreaming , however I cannot find the dv1000 sata drivers on the hp site!

Thank you all very much!

Hello, this will be long so I'll get straight to the point. I have an hp pavilion dv1000 laptop running windows 7 ultimate 32 bit. This has worked perfectly until yesterday. I was running disk defragmentor when power went out, restarted laptop, ran for a bit then keyboard and mouse stopped responding. Restarted laptop, keyboard and mouse work in bios and windows 7 safe mode, beyond that, nothing. Reinstalled windows 7, keyboard and mouse working, installed audio driver (conexant aclink 97 audio), immediatly keyboard and mouse freeze. When I restart laptop in safemode and disable audio driver (which worked perfectly before) keyboard and mouse work. Another thing, I have tried booting ubuntu live cd and slax live cd, keyboard and mouse work during setup, but stop working once operating system, i.e linux, starts running. I have tried everything, formatting hard drive and reinstalling windows 7, updating drivers, nothing works, and the system is acing strangley, wont even instal vga display drivers.

Thanks, sorry for many typhos

A:HP Pavilion DV1000 Laptop Multiple Errors

Hello wizzar, welcome to the forum

When you have a problem like this over multiple operating systems, it suggests a hardware failure, was your laptop connected to the mains supply when the power went out?
It may help if you were to post a snip Device manager and ensure that your chipset drivers are installed.
When I look for drivers for your laptop I do not find any Windows 7 drivers, what drivers are you using? and if they are the Vista drivers are you installing them in Compatibility Mode

Anyone know how to upgrade the hard drive on an HP Pavilion dv1000 laptop (out of warranty)? I've upgraded desktops but never a laptop before... I don't even know the name of the screws and where to purchase the special screwdriver for starters. I Googled the topic but couldn't find anything useful, and of course HP's not providing easy upgrade instructions...

A:HP Pavilion dv1000 hard drive upgrade - how to?

simple. clone the current contents of your drive to your new hd - use a usb to ide adapter. use a clone tool like acronos. Some new drives have kits.

then remove the caddy containing your old hd from your laptop. you may have to unscrew it from your system.

carefully slide the caddy out. if there is a pin adapter on the end of the HD remove it, you will need it on the new drive. If not, don't worry about it.

unscrew the hd from the caddy, remove and replace it with the new one.
put the pin adaper on the new hd if applicable.
slide the caddy back in, screw it in and reboot! simple too easy!

Hi, from my research I saw this is the best place to ask these types of question. Any help is appreciated.
Here is the gist of my issues:
Windows 10.
I had just finished downloading a file from our Google drive directory; it was for some anti virus.
Right after the anti virus installed Windows froze up, and an error popped up. It stated Windows had crashed or something along those lines.
I had to unplug the cord.
Once rebooting I noticed it was taking incredibly long. The screen went to yellow showing signs of loading, then to black. I could move my mouse here,
After this happened the login screen appeared. Everything was very slow. I tried to right click and noticed it freezing up.
After it finally loaded the login screen I entered in my pin, but it took over 10 minutes then went to black.
After other tries to boot I had very mixed signals. Sometimes it made it to the login, other times just a black screen.
On one occasion I got this error:
"The Group Policy Client Service Failed The Sign-in. The Universal Unique Identifier (UUID) Type Is Not Supported."
Sadly, this is for the admin account.
I have no idea where to go from here, and have a lot invested file, and program wise, and thus time wise into this set up, for work.
Any ideas where to go ? I cannot access system restore or anything as it won't let me log in.
Any help is appreciated.
Edit: title shouldn't say admin at the end. Meaning I cannot log in to the admin, or any other profile.

Hello Smash, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm a bit confused with your conflicting statements.

You say that "...now I do not need to do the login and able to use the computer right away.", but then ask "How can I skip the login screen and go straight into desktop..."?

Just to be certain, do you have to log on or not?Log On Automatically at Startup
Are you asking how to log on to the built-in Administrator account to have full access and control?

Hi everyone,

My computer was logging into the administrator account automatically when the computer started. To fix this problem, I typed "net user administrator activate:no" into the command prompt.

When I started the computer again, a little window popped up saying that it could not log in and to make sure the domain and password were correct. When I hit OK, it continued to the welcome screen and the administrator account was not there.

Perfect... until I went to find out where the admin account had disappeared to. I booted the computer into safe mode (the little message came up again and I clicked OK) and clicked on the admin account. Then it asked for the password...

I tried "admin" and the two other passwords that I had previously used. None worked. What could the password possibly be?

A:Admin login

You set the Admin password when you install windows, but you can leave it blank. So maybe the password is just blank

i'd just use http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/ to create a boot disk to make a new password

Hi everyone, I have a problem with my windows xp home system.
The thing is that I recently created a new admin account and deleted the old one from windows, while deleting the old account the pc froze up and i had to restart it.
VERY BIG BAD NEWS? Thing is everything was fine... Till i checked windows accesories(start/programs/accesories) almost every windows services/programs where gone,
i used norton sys works win doctor and many other tweak and checer programs and nothing comes up on them, and in fact none of the lost files is essential, I still have the important ones like sys restore and others. The bad things came up when i try to do things like removing programs from autostart (msconfig) since windows deny my request and says i should login as an admin, but i dont even have a guest account!
Please if anyone can help me with any ideas that do not include reinstalling windows or formatting(my pc its a sony VAIO and windows can only be ejecutable in the machine CD's and it automatically formatts the pc) I will be grateful

My computer is not even a year old. It is well protected by virus, spyware, ad - aware, spam, pop up, mal-ware scanners, even an optimizer.

Recently I just had added a standard account for my husband. It worked for about a week. He then reported to me that he would sign in, the windows screen will pop up, then the screen will show as Logging Off, then go back to the main screen that lists all the account.

I tried to fix it by doing a system restore but it only worked for that period. But once I restarted the computer it was back to the way it has been.

We also decided maybe just opening the guest account & he would use it but the guest does the same thing.
What I tried:

System Restore - as far as possible

Back Up & Restore - Don't have a disk with enough storage space

Delete & Re Create User Account

A:Cant Login To Anything But Admin

Perhaps there is spyware doing it. Try booting in to safe mode with networking and running a malwarebytes scan.

If i go to C/docs and settings I see folders for the new account "HP Admin" and also "Admin" I can get into the "Admin" and then "My Docs" folder but cant get into anything beyond that.

A:login to user not admin

Welcome to TSG....

Actually you are logging in as a user but with full admin rights. If you boot in safe mode you should see several accounts administrator, your account you open on boot up and guest which is the limited account.

If yo want to go into Windows as guest then you can setup the computer for that but it will limit you to that account and its limited capabilities just go to user accounts in control panel and turn it on so you can use it.

If you can't remember your password then don't set one up.

You can run HP System Recovery which on modern HP's has a minimal Recovery without all of the corrupting bloatware and duplicate utilities that have better versions built into Win7.

However to get the very best performance I would do what most tech enthusiasts do and Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. Everything you need is in the blue link.

I had some problems when I upgraded my workstations to sp5, in fact I had to reinstall NT on a few machines.
Before I had NTFSDOS.
Basically there is a machine that I managed to recover, but it no longer allows domain adimins to login.
Well it does but once logged in the screen just sits and never loads the desktop.
I have looked at profiles but the domain admin profiles are roaming anyway, but I still deleted them locally.
I want to upgrade to sp6 to see if it will fix it but can't due to certain programs being used.

A:{Resolved} - Admin login


It sounds like the account does not have write access to the Hard Drive, or to the Winnt directory.

Can you log onto the machine at all? Can you log in as the LOCAL administrator?

If so, then log in, and right click on the Hard disk drives and go to properties. In the properties tab, go to the Security tab, and click on the bottom button called "Take Ownership". Take ownership of all files and directories (there will be an error when it tries to take ownership of open files like pagefile.sys, just tell it to continue).

Then go to the permissions tab and make sure Everyone has Full Control to the drive.

Then open up User Manager and add the domain Admin group to the Local Admin group. Then log off and log back on again.

If you can not log in AT ALL, with ANY account, then you might need to use NTFSdos to get the data off the disk and re-install.

kborella Sorry, but forum policy prevents us from telling you how to bypass the Admin login to get into your PC. At this point, you need to take the PC back to your "friend" , have them disable the default Admin login, and if they can not restore your original login, create a new one for you, using a default password (like "password"), which you then change to a real password when you get it back home and login to it again. Good Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------Please click "Accept As Solution" on the post that solves your issue to help others find the solution.Please click the Thumbs-Up symbol on the left of the Reply button to say thanks fopr my help.========================================================================

One of the office computers never had a password for the administrator account, and it was the only account ever used by everyone. We set a password and created a limited user account. Now when the admin account is attempted to be logged into the message: "C:\windows\system32\command.com incorrect paramaters" appears. However the limited account will login fine. When the system is started in safe mode, the admin account can be logged into.
I expect that a malware/trojen/whatever may be the culprit. Prior to the issue, Spybot removed 526 problems, but 25 needed a reboot before Spybot could remove them. I ran hijack this and saved the log before any "cleaning" of the system began. Where do I begin to correct this?

A:Admin accounts won't login

Do you use the Welcome Screen or a Logon Box.

If it's the welcome screen, press Ctrl + Alt + Del twice at the Welcome Screen. You should be able to enter the username and password there.

I'd create a second admin account in safe mode if I were you, since you said it lets you logon there.

Have a domain system that is set via Group Policy to have the domain set for the default "log in to" option. Works well on all machines but one. When typing in "Administrator" in the "Log me in to:" field, I get as far as "Administrat" and when I type the "o" in Administrator it automatically switches the "Log me in to" from the set default doamin name to the Local PC name. Wierd.

Assume it has something to do with it recognizing the user Administrator and guessing wrongly that I must want Local access.

So my only option is to manually type the domain name in username field "domain\uAdminsitrator". Any thoguhts?

A:Stange login behavior for Admin

I'm hoping someone posts and responds to this with a solution, but I'm doubt there is one. In our experience, W7 always scans the local accounts before going to the domain to look for accounts, meaning it'll probably always do this.

Hey guys, here's the deal.
I upgraded my OS a few months ago to 64 bit with new components etc.
I kept all of the old system files and folders JUST for if it went wrong, now ive sorted them all out, the old system files, and adobe is locked for some reason? I keep trying to change all of the administration but it just jumps straight back to before, but hey, im in no hurry to change it, its only 15gb of useless copies! Its just niggling at me and i would like to get it sorted if theres any other way?
ie changing the admin account so i can change - everything-, as I'm not exactly new with computers, been studying them for years.

Thanks a lot for the assistance in advance guys Looking forward to some suggestions!

- Also, a little off topic if anyones got enough time to add some wisdom to the thread, ive just bought a super duper cooler for my CPU as when i run on normal settings on a game I play, LotrO, the manufacturers fan goes mad, and it really gets my goat making a loud whirring sound, would I be able to run on High-Ultra with a duel core amd athlon 2? with that fan I have "Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Socket 775 CPU Cooler" it wouldnt make any sound as its made for being quiet and cool very well. i suppose the only sign of the strain is artifacts in-game? Thanks again

A:Access Denied on Admin Login?

You should right-click the folder, go to properties, click the Security tab, click the Advanced button, click the Owner tab, and then click the edit button. Select your account from the list, click to check the box labeled "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects", and then click the OK button to apply permissions. Exit out of the properties dialog, and (unless you also need to add yourself full control to the permissions on the properties / security tab) you should now be able to delete the folder.

Okay, this is for a friend. I've tried everything I've been able to find, and since she got the computer second-hand..

Let me start at the beginning. This is her Christmas present, that her mom bought for her at some auction. It's a decent system, almost as powerful as my own. That being said, the person who sold it neglected to mention that the administrator account that allows you to do ANYTHING has a password on it. Not only that, but they also neglected to give a password recovery or reset disc with the computer.

As it stands, here's what we've tried thus far:
Tried using a program known as Ophcrack on a USB drive, but for whatever reason, it won't work without administrator approval. (Yeah, that had me scratching my head, too.)
Tried to clean out the machine and do a fresh install from the boot menu. (After almost a week, you get desperate.)

Those were the two most feasible ones I could find on the web, but after that, I have no clue how to do this. (I've loved XP for as long as I can remember, so.. I'm not particularly schooled in Vista.)

Just a quick note, in case you weren't able to infer it: the PC in question is running Vista.

If anyone at all knows how we can get around this password issue, please.. this is driving her crazy, and, being her boyfriend, it's driving me crazy as well. >_<

Thank all of you for your time, and Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

(I was taught to be polite. o.o)
