Or, what you could TRY is hit ctrl-alt-del when it comes up in the logon screen. That might revert it back to the welcome screen.

Hi rjjk45,

I'm guessing that instead of icons you're getting two lines of text for a username and password. Some programs, such as Symantec's pcAnywhere change some security settings and make that change. Try removing any recent programs you've installed and see if it reverts.

You can also try manually changing this. Go to your Control Panel and then to User Accounts. Select the option that says 'Change the way users log on' and you'll get two options. If 'Use the Welcome Screen' is not checked, check that box. If you can't check it or it is grayed out, then some recent software installation made that change.

If this isn't what you're experiencing, please provide the screenshot that smokeymatzo has asked about.

My desktop frequantaly booting what can i do

When you say frequently rebooting; Is it randomly rebooting without warning? Do you get a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) error message? Or does the PC just reboot without any error's other than windows was not shutdown properly?

MOST random reboot issues are caused by Power issues;

-Failing Power Supply
-Blown Capacitors on the motherboard
-Insufficient power to run the system.

These would be a good place to start to troubleshoot if you do not get a Blue Screen Error Message.

-Failing Hard Drive can cause this issue as well but is usually acompanied by a Blue Screen Error of sorts.

-Failing RAM again usually accompanied by a Blue Screen Error.

You can test for failing hardware, by using Hiren's Boot Disk for diagnostic tests on your Hard Drive or Ram.

Hiren's Boot CD 15.2 -

You will want to run memtest X86 to test the Ram or Hitachi's Drive Fitness Test or SeaTools to test your hard drive.

This BootCD is not for the typical end user whom may not know there way around the features and options this Tech CD provides.

You will want to burn the Hirens Boot.ISO file to a CD (Burn Image Option) using any of your favorite flavors of burn software.

Hope this helps.

You can also download these diagnostic test individually such as memtest x86 and Hitachi's DFT or SeaTools independently from the Boot CD just by doing a google search. This might be the easier way to perform these tests for people who aren't very savvy with boot CD's.

Sylvania #7 inch notebook. When i turn in on the screen goes to Welcome to Windows CE and asks for a password. I just bought it new and have no directions that were in the box. Please help !

If it came with a password and no directions were included, you need to take it back to the place of purchase for a proper exchange, and get them to check the new replacement before you except it.

Turns on but won't respond


IF IT IS THE WINDOWS WELCOME SCREEN then format and reinstall windows followed by your drivers and software

IF IT IS A DESKTOP and its the boot welcome screen (MOTHER BOARD MANUFACTURE) the try flashing the bios, look for jp1 its cloe to the battery it should have 3 pins and a jumper. the jumper should be on 1 and 2 leaving 3 free, put the jumper on 2 and 3 for 5 seconds then putting it back on one and 2.

If that dont work remover the rams and flash again

If that dont work disconnect all hard drives and other drives from the board and see if it boots. IT WOULD SAY INSERT SYSTEM DISK

if that happens it means one of your drive is bad connect it one by one until u find which and replace it..



DISCONNECT THE BATTERY , remove the rams and there is anoter smaller batter on the main board, remove it as well
leave it off for a few minuters reassemble and it should work

if it does replace the drives one by one to see which is bad

IF THAT DONT HELP take it in to a technician for repairs to the main board
