    How can I do a system restore when I can't boot windows?

  • dianediane32 Jan 18, 2009

    I tried the safe mode and was still prompted for the user and when I click the user it logs me off before I go to the desktop.
    I can get to dos. Is there a way I can delete or edit the user file so
    it goes right to windows without a user prompt?

You won't lose your data with System Restore. Just applications and and Windows Updates since the date you went back too. But you can save the current state with System Restore first. That way you don't have to worry about losing anything. Then go back with System Restore.

    Can you get into Safe Mode by pressing the F8 key repeatedly (or hold down the CTRL key) just when Windows starts to load? If so, that will work.

    Start

    Remember that menu where you can select safe mode? Well lower in that menu you can select last known good configeration. Try that one. Hopefully it will reset you back before this problem.

My asus x42j will not let me log in. It comes up saying " The user Profile service failed the login . User profile cannot be loaded. What should i do? Is it the software or hardware?


Hi ben1995reid,
Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?
It is a software problem.
When did the problem start? Did it happen just recently?

Please try to do the following to resolve the problem:

1. Please try to boot your computer to safe mode. You can boot to safe mode by doing the following:

  • Turn off the computer. Turn on the computer then immediately start tapping the F8 key repeatedly.
Note:
You must press F8 before the Windows logo appears on the screen. If you press F8 after the Windows logo appears, the Advanced Boot Options menu does not appear on the screen. If you do not see the Advanced Boot Options menu, restart the computer, and then repeat this step until you see the menu on the screen.
  • Use the (Down Arrow) arrow key on the keyboard, scroll down to Safe Mode then pressEnter.
  • Login to your User Name.

2. Use System Restore to restore the computer's settings to an earlier date:
  • Navigate to the Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools.
  • Click on the System Restore program icon.
  • Click Next > on the Restore system files and settings window.
  • Choose the restore point that you want to use.
Note: Check the Show more restore points checkbox to see more than the most recent restore points.
  • Click Next >.
  • Click Finish on the Confirm your restore point window to begin the System Restore.
Note: Windows will shut down to complete the System Restore.


Hope that helps

Cant log in on vista password forgotten


Discussion: When we are running imagex we are not deleting user data from the HDD, in this process we are overwriting data. But, its better to set expectation to Customer that thre might be possibility of data loss. After completing the process we can logon to the system with new user account that we create and we can retrieve data from old user profile.
Here is the process to run Imagex:
1. Boot to the computer using VISTA DVD.
2. Select the option repair my computer.
3. Go to command prompt
4. Go to D: prompt
5. Type Path d:\windows;d:\windows\system32 and press Enter
6. Go to Tools folder using command "cd tools".
7. Use this command Imagex /apply d:\dell\image\factory.wim 1 c:\
This process will take 15 Minutes after that reboot the system. After rebboting we will get OOBE Screen.
We can logon to the system using new username. We can retrieve the data by navigating to old user profile.
How to retrieve the data from the old user profile after using the Imagex procedure :
1. Click Computer
2. Click Local Disk C:
3. Locate Windows.old and double click on the same
4. Click Users
5. Click <username>
Note : <username> would be the login name for which he has forgotten the password
6. Accordingly you can access the files available in the folders Desktop, Favourites, Music, Downloads etc

My daughter has windows vista installed on her computer, somehow she cannot login using her password she probably forgot..the error message states The User Profile Service service failed the logon..user...


1. Login to the Safe Mode and then perform the steps as mentioned in this page to resolve it.

NOTE: To login to the Safe Mode, press the F8 key at startup or whn the Computer starts.

2. Try performing the System Restore.

System Restore removes system changes that were made since the last time you remember your computer working correctly. This feature allows the user to revert crucial operating system files back to a previous recorded state. System Restore does not affect your personal data files, so you won't lose changes made to these files.

Open System Restore by clicking the Start button, clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, clicking System Tools, and then clicking System Restore.‌ Administrator permission required. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

Or check this link to perform the System Restore.

Check this link also for more information and resolve the error message.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!

Cannot login


Actually windows save default configuration in WINDOWS\repair directory and current configuration in WINDOWS\system32\config directory, so by replacing file in  WINDOWS\system32\config with file in WINDOWS\repair directory you restore windows configuration to first finish installation state with no user, driver installed and software installed, but your file, user folder, and installed program still exist but will not work and you will not lose your data.

If your laptop support booting from USB try portable Windows XP Live USB

if not, use NTFS DOS

I turn on my puter it goes to the user login and then logs off


Hi,

I've run into this problem too often lately. So far I haven't managed to find a decent fix for it :( I've ended up having to backup the computer's data, reinstall windows, and restore all the data.

From the times I've seen it you get to the login screen, click on your user, get the "Loading personal Settings", a quick flash of the desktop, then back to the login screen saying "saving personal settings". It would do this in both safe mode and normal mode, so I was never able to try turning off startup software or services.

Booting to the windows XP disc and running a check disc might help, but from my experience with the problem you will probably need to reinstall windows. Hopefully someone else has a better idea.

Best of luck :)
