The user profile service failed the logon. user profile cannot be loaded


Anyway.. If you can, follow these steps. They might help! If not, give me a bell! It looks complicated, but it's very easy.

Also, before this happened, did you trying doing a Windows Update? If so, that was the cause, especially if it failed. I don't know why it locks the account, however.
1. Open the Start menu.
2. In the white line (Start Search) area, type regedit and press Enter.
3. If prompted, either click on Continue or enter the password for the Administrator account.
4. In regedit, go to: (See screenshot below step 5)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

5. In the left pane, look for the S-1-5..... folder (SID key) with the long number that has .bak at the end of the numbers.
(See screenshots below steps 6A and 7B)
NOTE:
A) In the right pane, look at the ProfileImagePath to verify that this is the user account profile that has the error.
B) You may have another S-1-5..... folder (SID key) above it with the exact same number without the .bak at the end of it.

6. For Two S-1-5..... folders (SID key) with the same Number -
NOTE: This is if you have two S-1-5..... folders (SID key) with the exact same numbers, but the second (below) one has the .bak at the end of the numbers.
A) In the left pane, right click on the first (top) S-1-5..... folder (SID key) that does not have .bak at the end of the numbers and click Rename. (See screenshot below)

F) Go to step 8.
7. For Only One S-1-5..... Folder (SID key) with .bak -

My computer keyboard is typing numbers instead of letters.. any suggestions on how to fix it


This is because most notebook keyboards have a number pad incorporated into the right-hand side of the keyboard. Numbers are being typed because the NumLock is active.
To disable this function press the NumLock key (might be marked NumLock or have a symbol that looks like a calculator on it) on the keyboard (you might need to press the Fn function key and the NumLock simultaneously).

Logon user profile cannot be loaded


It sounds like your user profile was deleted. Can you log on with any other account? Here is a link to this issue on Microsoft's sit. It's a little technical but it's the info you need:

Best would be remove the CMOS battery.

If you are comfortable with DIY then you can take the steps from this web site

http://vsslfpro.zcce.compaq.com/plmcontent/NACSC/SML/results.htm?SID=96403&MEID=E613C967-5DBF-40D6-AAAD-8E716BDE262C

The cmos battery is located on the top right hand corner next to the cooling fan and can be accessed after you have removed the led plate, keyboard, cooling pate.

If you are not comfortable doing it your self then better take it to a computer shop and ask them to fix it for yor.

As always I am not responsible if something happens to you lap top if you follow the instructions given above.
