Go to Safe Mode. Type REGEDIT. Select HKEY LOCALMACHINE. SOFTWARE, MICROSOFT. WINDOWS NT. PROFILE LIST. In PROFILE LIST are two folders with the same name but one has .bak suffix. RENAME the plain one with .ba suffix. Rename the .bak to plain with no suffix. Rename the .ba to suffix .bak. In the now plain one with no suffix, open it and find REF COUNT set it to 0. Open State and set that to 0. Save the files and reboot.
Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 1420 - says user profile cannot be loaded

Try this, it should work and it really is quite easy to follow -

1. Boot up in Safe Mode. To do this, hit the F8 key while the computer is
booting, and then scroll down to the "Safe Mode" option and press enter. On
my computer the user account icon appeared, but bigger than normal, and I
clicked it and it loaded my desktop in safe mode. It came up with an error
bubble saying that my user account hadn't loaded properly, but I just ignored
this.

2. Click the Start Button and in the white "Start Search" space at the
bottom type "regedit" (without the quotation marks). This will open the
registry editor.

3. In the left-hand pane, navigate by clicking the little triangles next to
the following folders:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
SOFTWARE
Microsoft
Windows NT
CurrentVersion
ProfileList

You should now have a list of folders all starting with S-1-5- and then a
number.
(You might need to drag the divider between the 2 panes of the window across
so you can read the whole folder name)
Look at the end of each name and you should see one with .bak at the end of
it, and there will be another one above it with exactly the same name but
without .bak at the end.
The one that's got .bak at the end is your old User Profile that Vista has
now made into a backup, and the one without .bak after it is the new empty
User Profile that Vista has created.
Just to check that this is the case, have a look in the right-hand pane for
each of the 2 folders and look at what's written after "ProfileImagePath".
For the folder with .bak at the end it should say C:\Users\ and then your
usual User Account name, and for the one that doesn't have .bak at the end it
should say C:\Users\TEMP.

What you need to do now is to rename the folders in the left-hand pane so
that the one with .bak at the end changes back to being the one containing
your proper User Profile and the new one without .bak at the end becomes the
backup. Do do this follow the next step:

4. Right click on the folder with .bak at the end and then click "rename",
and just change the ".bak" part to ".bk" - i.e. just remove the "a" from the
middle - (this is just to allow you to change the other one to have .bak at
the end). Press enter or click on some blank part of the screen for the
change to take effect.
Then, right click the one that doesn't have .bak at the end and click
"rename". Remove the .bak from the end and press enter or click anywhere on
some blank part of the screen to accept the change.
Then, right click on the one that now has .bk at the end, choose "rename"
and add the "a" back into the middle, so it now has .bak at the end. Press
enter or click on blank park of screen to accept the change.
Close the regedit window.

5. Click the Start Button and then "Restart".
It should work now, otherwise see link below -

SOURCE: Service user profile error

Boot into safe mode by spamming the "F8" button "after" you see your VAIO splash screen. You will be presented with a few options, select "safe mode".

When windows loads, you should now have access to your hidden Admin account. I have seen this account password protected and not protected, hit and miss. I would first try leaving the password field blank, then move onto passwords you know.

You can also remove the hard drive and install it into a desktop computer as a slave (extra storage). This will gain you access to all your files. If at anytime during this process you get error messages of "access denied", take "ownership" of the folder you are trying to open.

For the above step:
If your laptop's hard drive is not SATA, you will need a cheap converter to convert the hookup to one that will fit in a desktop. Below is a link to one so you know exactly what you are looking for.

Hi,
· Was there any change prior to this issue?
Personal files are located under c:\users\<username>\. You may try to access from that location and check.
Step 1: As a work around, perform system restore.
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/What-is-System-Restore
Step 2: If that does not resolve, then check in new user account.
Check the link "Create a user account" http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Create-a-user-account
If the issue does not persist in new user account do the steps in the following link "Fix a corrupted user profile" http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/Fix-a-corrupted-user-profile

Vista log in


The user profile seems to have corrupted. The account that you log into is corrupt now may be due to incompatencies or incompatibility or may be a virus or a spyware. Alternatively, you can try logging to safe mode window. As you start the computer keep tapping the F8 key on your keyboard at the sametime. You would reach a screen to choose from different boot options. Select safe mode(you would have to use the arrow keys in your keyboard). Log in with the usual username and password. If it logs in, you might see a black window with large icons. Don't worry. Go go start, control panel, user accounts, and create a new account. So you can use the new account. Restart the computer and login to the new user account. You should be good. Make sure the account you create should be an administrator. Later if you want you can delete the user account that you have been using before. You can delete it from safe mode again by going to control panel, user accounts.
