Reboot in safe mode (at very first manufacturers start-up screen, press and hold F8, choose "Boot in Safe Mode". When prompted, you can either a) System Restore to an earlier date, or B) load and then run anti-virus software. I would suggest updating your virus definitions first, then running a comprehensive virus scan BEFORE trying the System Restore (many re-boot issues are code-executed, and are usually because of a virus). If you need to do a restore, pick a date well before the problem occured, as is may be an older issue than just the re-boot problem!

Hope this helps!

My daughter received a computer after her aunt passed. It's loaded with Windows Vista Home Premium. No discs were with the tower, and her aunt's windows log-on comes up... No clue what the password is....


try to boot up in safe mode, keep pressing f8 till a menu appears and use the arrow keys to select safe mode. Then press enter. Once the windows login screen appears choose Administrator to log in. Then click the start menu button (the microsoft flag button) in the bottom left of the screen and click control panel, choose user accounts, then choose add or remove user accounts. Click yes to allow , then click on your daughters aunts account and click remove password. Now restart the pc and you will not have to enter a password.

If you dont have the administrator account to log into you will have to reply with the exact make and model of computer as you may have a recovery partition to restore the pc back to how it was when it was first purchased

When I put in my password it tells me "The User Profile Service service failed the log on User profile cannot be loaded


switch the laptop on and then after the post messages appear and before windows starts press f8 repeatedly until the startup menu appears choose safe mode then log in as administrator. click start control panel > users > click manage user accounts then click create new user and create the account with administartor rights. Restart the laptop and log in to the new account you created then open computer up and right click on local disk c and click properties then click on tools click the button next to error checking saying check now. It will say windows cannot check a disk while it is in use and would you like to schedule a check on nxt restart or it will have a button saying schedule disk check, if its the latter click it. restart the pc and let it check the disk

after it has started windows try to log back in to your old account


if you cant log in to your old account you may be infected with a virus, scan your laptop.

I forgot my sign on and i dont have those disks to reset it cause i never made them so now im trying to get back in and i cant remember the password ,i even went as far as re-installing the os and it still...


Turn on the computer, as soon as you press the power button, keep tapping F8 until a black screen with options comes up.

Choose the Safe Mode option. Once in Safe Mode, logon with the Administrator account. Once logged on, go to Control Panel to change the password for YOUR user account. Restart back into normal mode after that.
