  2. Hello,
    You can boot to Safe Mode and log on with the Local Administrator account
    to retrieve any data.
    Even with the evaluation period expiration, that option should always be
    available.
    Thanks,

    See the thread under Help XP64 Evaluation Edition Ended Early dated 7/9/2005
    Seems to be covered well there.

  5. Any adjustments to clock/calendar forward or back are cumulative and
    irreversible.
    Once the time bomb has gone off your only option is a Clean Installation if
    you still want to use the product.

  7. Hello,
    It has to be Safe Mode and Safe Mode only.
    It cannot be Safe Mode with Networking.
    I know that Safe Mode works to allow access.

    This is not an answer to your problem but losing power to a computer should
    not reset the CMOS. For example you can simulate a power outage by
    unplugging a system while it is running. When you restart the computer the
    date and other BIOS setting should not have been changed. However a power
    surge which often accompanies a power outage could affect the motherboard.
    Check to ensure your system isn't damaged.

  9. I have had about 40 odd power cuts over the past 2 days, so I should have
    damaged system too.

    I have had about 40 odd power cuts over the past 2 days, so I should have
    damaged system too.


    I live in the state that gets the most lightning strikes..Maybe even the
    world. (Lovely Florida, USA)
    Had one strike so close to the house, that it snapped the coaxial input
    cable for my Amateur radio antenna, blew out a microwave oven, VCR, and
    several of the high hats in my ceiling light fixture just fell out of the
    ceiling.

    My PC never flinched though :~] (Love my UPS)

    The same strike took out my neighbors modem, sound card and alarm system.
    It sounded like a bomb going off and the flash of the lightning and the boom
    of the thunder occurred simultaneously.

    Also, CMOS, (BIOS), will not reset upon power failure unless the battery is
    dead or missing.
    Normal use will give you roughly 5-7 years for cmos back-up.

    at such times. You are taking some risk there.

    You need a UPS too Andre. Mine has saved me at least 50 restarts this year
    alone. I love my UPS, too. I have to use cheap surge protectors on my
    modem since I go thru 4-5 a year. Expensive ones go just as fast on the
    modem, but protect better on the power.

    If I had 40 power cuts in the past 2 days I'd seriously look at getting a
    UPS and I wouldn't be surprised if I began noticing stability problems.
