| Just bought a pre-owned Dell Inspiron 6000D, running XP. On first power-up,
| after what appears to be a normal boot-up, it displays a message window
| headed "lsass.exe System error". The error description says, "When trying to
| update a password this return status indicates that the value provided as the
| current password is incorrect." It never asks for a password to be entered,
| so this is puzzling.
|
| Aftger displaying this message it reboots again, displays the same error
| message again, reboots again, displays the same error message again, reboots
| again, etc., in an infinite loop.
|
| I checked the password settings in Set-Up and note that no passwords are
| set. Thanks for any help
