If video for everything else looks ok, it might just be a driver issue... hopefully, you have Nvidia graphics as they are the easiest to find drivers for, you can go to their web site and basically have them scan your machine for the correct one.

for non Nvidia, i would just make sure you're current with your windows updates, usually they will patch your system with relevant drivers.

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)

The original image is sized 828x303.2803d1221837039-user-profile-service-failed-logon-user-profile-cannot-loaded-repair.jpg
B) Add .bk to the end of the numbers. (See screenshot below)
wol_error.gifThis image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 828x303.wol_error.gifThis image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image.

The original image is sized 828x303.2804d1221837039-user-profile-service-failed-logon-user-profile-cannot-loaded-repair_bk.jpg
C) In the left pane, right click on the second S-1-5..... folder (SID key) with .bak at the end of the numbers and click Rename. (See screenshot above)
D) Remove only .bak from the end of the numbers and press Enter. (See screenshot below)
E) Now go back and Rename the first one with .bk to .bak now at the end of the numbers and press Enter.
wol_error.gifThis image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 828x303.wol_error.gifThis image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image.

The original image is sized 828x303.2805d1221837039-user-profile-service-failed-logon-user-profile-cannot-loaded-repar_bak.jpg
F) Go to step 8.
7. For Only One S-1-5..... Folder (SID key) with .bak -
NOTE: This is if you only have one S-1-5..... folder (SID key) for your user account with .bak at the end of the numbers.
A) In the left pane, right click on the S-1-5..... folder (SID key) with .bak at the end of the numbers and click Rename. (See screenshot below)
B) Remove only .bak at the end of the numbers and press Enter. (See screenshot below and below step 10)
wol_error.gifThis image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 836x303.wol_error.gifThis image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 836x303.wol_error.gifThis image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 836x303.2737d1221837039-user-profile-service-failed-logon-user-profile-cannot-loaded-repair_reg2.jpg

8. In the right pane of the one without .bak now, right click on RefCount and click Modify. (See screenshot below step 10)
NOTE: If you do not have RefCount, then right click on a empty space in the right pane and click New and DWORD (32 bit) Value, then type RefCount and press Enter.
A) Type 0 (number) and click on OK. (See screenshot below)
2738d1202983360-user-profile-service-failed-logon-user-profile-cannot-loaded-modify_refcount.jpg

9. In the right pane of the one without .bak now, right click on State and click Modify. (See screenshot below step 10)
A) Type 0 (number) and click on OK. (See screenshot below)
2739d1202983366-user-profile-service-failed-logon-user-profile-cannot-loaded-modify_state.jpg

10. The registry will now look like this for the one without .bak now. (See screenshot below)

wol_error.gifThis image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 836x303.wol_error.gifThis image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 836x303.wol_error.gifThis image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 836x303.2737d1221837039-user-profile-service-failed-logon-user-profile-cannot-loaded-repair_reg2.jpg

11. Close regedit.
12. Restart the computer.
13. See if you can logon now.

Why my Compaq Presario CQ20 have black part at both sides(left and right) when the time i open all games ?


The game is telling the PC to configure to a size that "LOOKS" the best for the game. Like 16:9 for dvd's on a HDTV. As games catch up they will fill up the whole screen. You can change it but it will look distorted,

Game display only occupies the center portion of monitor not full screen. Thinkpad A22m w/ windows xp home SP3. Can't get the game screen to display on the full monitor screen.


It is most likely that the game is unable to operate at the resolution that your screen is set at and is compensating by sizing the game window to the required size. You might change you display resolution to a lower setting.
Hope this helps! Rate my solution!

I am having a problem with my nvidia graphics card i believe


Go to NVIDIA control panel (Right Click on Windows Desktop)
Set and check ALL your Paramaters to match with your Hardware
reduce resolution (if required) to get the quality you ask for.
If you use CRT screen be aware of magnetic fields (Speakers, UPS, motors) interferences: try moving screen or disturbances.
Pls let me know if working.
