Hi mestitup,  

 

1.    What happen when you try to login to Windows using the first administrator account?

2.    Do you receive any error message?

 

 

Method 1

 

Check if you are able to boot to the desktop using the safe mode.

 

Start your computer in safe mode

Restart the computer to get back to the normal mode

 

 

Method 2

 

If you are able to boot into safe mode then I would suggest that you enable the built in administrator account and check.

 

Here’s how you enable built-in administrator account.

 

a)   Go tostart and type cmd in the search field.

b)   Right-click oncmd listed and click on “Run as Administrator”.

c)    Once the command prompt opens, type the following command.

net user administrator /active:yes

You should see a message that the command completed successfully.

Now restart the computer and check
