    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Try this.

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial61.html

    Try the last known good config option as well.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    as howard posted the link above... do that but in stead of going into safe mode try last known good configuration. if that doesnt work try debugging mode. see if you can evan get a logon screen

    Doing a Windows repair should leave your data intact. However, as with all major undertakings, there is always a risk something could go wrong.

    Having said all that, your computer isn`t much use to you at the moment is it? A windows repair is a lot better than a format.

    Ps. If you have any further questions, post them in this thread and not via pm`s. Thanks.

    Regards Howard :)

    Edit: In answer to yet another pm. Yes, you would need your Windows cd in order to run a repair.
