or try pressing f8 a few times when you first start the computer......boot into safe mode. Pick the administrator account...if this is password protected and you don't it......have to try something else. If you can logon as administrator, then go to the control panel, user accounts, and reset or remove the password on the account you are locked out of.

Ugender is probably right, if susanhymus is using the correct password.

That sounds like the error that is the last one in the list in response 1 of this:

- if you're sure you were using the correct password with Caps lock correctly disabled or enabled at the time....
- see response 1 in this - you can fix your problem two ways without you losing your personal data that is on the partition Windows is on:

Quite possibly, it really depends on how well they phrase the problem, and how it is interpreted. Perhaps someone changed her normal login? Bratty kids....one never knows. Doesn't say if this is a home or work environment save for domain reference on login. AN XP question in Vista? The F8 admin idea is a quick easy try. If I told most of my clients to ghost their system and a have at it....most of my clients wouldn't have a clue. I just read the brief clip here at the top perhaps there was another post with more info, not that I would disagree with anyone's solutions, but imaging, etc is best left for folks who have experience doing it..........anyways I try.

This Topic is in the XP forum and her first post says the subject computer has XP Pro.
It would be preferable if she had specified the OS was XP too under her user name in the first post, but that'll do.

She can always look at those error messages at the link I pointed to and decide if the info applies to her case.
The Repair installation method can be used to attempt to fix many problems even if she has some other problem.

We welcome all help suggestions for the person who started the Topic.

Is this perhaps a virtual installation of XP Pro on a Vista machine (as obliquely referenced by Tubesandwires)? If so, that tiny bit of info would be most welcome!

I have the same problem but cannot get past the username and password. I have tried login with administrator but the password is not correct and the same message comes up System could not log you in - username /passwords etc etc.

I can get not safe mode and any other mode but i cannot get into the user login now. System seems to have been shut down and it keeps coming back to a screen indicating windows did not start successfully A recent hardware or software xhange might have caused this> then asks that I start in safe mode, or networking or previous config prompt or normally but it just goes around in circles.

Any opinion? Looks like a hard disk replacement??? Appreciate any advice on this

Cheers Mundizzi.

You should have started your own Topic (clicked on Start a New Discussion).
When you make a post in a relatively old Topic - the last post before yours was made Feb 15 2011 - you're not likely to get as many answers.

You have not provided clear enough information, or enough information
- e.g. you have not stated
- the exact message you're getting
- whether your computer has XP, or Vista, or Windows 7 on it.
- what make and model of brand name system, or what make and model of mboard if you have a generic desktop system, that you have.

If your only problem is that you are getting a message regarding the user profile cannot load because there's something wrong with it....

How to copy data from a corrupted user profile to a new profile in Windows XP
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/811151

Fix a corrupted user profile (Vista)
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-CA/...

"I can get not safe mode and any other mode..."

Do you mean you tried pressing F8 repeatedly while booting and choosing one of the Windows boot choices selections - e.g. Safe mode, Safe mode with networking, Enable VGA mode,etc., and none of them would load successfully,
OR - you WERE able to choose and load a choice, but when you tried to logon to a user you got a message regarding the user profile cannot be loaded ?
OR - you tried pressing F8 repeatedly while booting and the Windows boot choices menu never appeared ? Instead, you got the same messages you got when you tried booting normally

NOTE that some mboard bioses (stupidly) have another use for the F8 key.
In that case, when you press F8 repeatedly while booting you may see something else pop up. E.g. a menu of boot devices - you're supposed to pick one to boot from.
If you see that, read the screen text to find the stated key to exit the screen or to continue without selecting a device, such as Esc, then immediately press F8 repeatedly to get the Windows boot choices screen with Safe mode etc.on it.
.....

"I have tried login with administrator but the password is not correct "

If you're using XP, the built in Administrator user (spelled exactly that way) is hidden when you boot normally (unless there is no other user that has administrator rights).
When you press F8 repeatedly while booting and choose Safe mode or Safe mode with networking from the Windows boot choices menu, the built in Administrator user appears as a choice, along with at least one other user.

Usually the built in Administrator user has no password.
In that case, you just press Enter to load the Administrator user's profile.

If there is something wrong with other user profiles, they won't load, but if there is nothing wrong with the Administrator user's profile it will load fine.

If you boot the computer from an XP CD, or if you have a brand name system software installation that has the ability to select loading the Recovery Console while booting, that's a different matter.

In that case,
- if you boot the computer from an XP CD, if your hard drive is IDE, or if your hard drive is SATA and the bios Setup has the SATA controllers in an IDE compatible mode, then after the initial files have loaded from the CD, when you press R to load the Recovery Console, it will find at least one Windows installation and list it

- OR - if you have a brand name system software installation that has the ability to select loading the Recovery Console while booting, if you press the stated key to load that, if your hard drive is IDE, or if your hard drive is SATA and the bios Setup has the SATA controllers in an IDE compatible mode, it will find at least one Windows installation and list it

In either case, you type the number of the Windows installation, then press Enter.

E.g. type 1, press Enter

You will be prompted to provide an Administrator Password.

Usually there is no Administrator password.
Just press Enter .
.......

If you NEVER get the Windows boot choices menu when you press F8 repeatedly while booting, try booting the computer from an XP CD, or choosing the Recovery Console choice if you see that while booting, and running CHKDSK /R

Boot from the XP CD, load the Recovery Console, run CHKDSK /R C:

For more info,
see response 11 in this:
http://www.computing.net/answers/wi...


starting at, scroll down to "If that won't work....."


Includes info about the possibilty the computer has a SATA hard drive and XP doesn't detect it, how to change bios SATA mode settings
.......

"Looks like a hard disk replacement???"

Your problem doesn't necessarily indicate there is anything wrong with the hard drive itself, but if it IS failing, you can have all sorts of problems.

Check your hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostics.
See the latter part of response 1 in this:
http://www.computing.net/windows95/...

If you don't have a floppy drive, you can get a CD image diagnostic utility from most hard drive manufacturer's web sites, but obviously you would need to make a burned CD, preferably a CD-R for best compatibility, on another computer if you need to.

E.g.

Seagate's Seatools will test any brand of hard drive.
Do the long test.
http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.j...

The bootable Dos versions of SeaTools can be used even if Windows is not working properly.

If the hard drive itself tests okay, any data problems found can be fixed, one way or another.
