Im hoping you guys can help me out here. A friend just dropped of his PC with an interesting problem. He has an Athlon XP 2100+ with an Abit board, 768mb of Ram, Maxtor 60GB hdd and hes running XP Pro with SP1. When the machine loads up to the welcome screen i hit OK (there is no password for the machine) and it loads the wallpaper as if its going to load properly, but then just instantly logs out again and brings up the PW box again. Ive tried hitting ctrl+alt+del but nothing seems to go through. The Hdd is partitioned into 2 partitions but when we try to repair it it sees the hard drive as one large partition and its the wrong letter so i do not want to try to format and reinstall yet. We also tried using Norton GoBack but it seems all the logged savepoints have been wiped out ie there are no dates to choose from. Please tell me one of you have seen this and knows a fix. Thanks. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
