On the Latitude D800 when I boot up and enter my Log in Password, it says that it cannot find my personal profile and logs me into the computer using temporary settings. All my personal saved profile


Your Windows profile is likely corrupted. That doesn't mean your files are gone. Your profile is stored on the C: drive in part in two locations (I am assuming Windows 7) It is stored in C:\USERS\<LOGIN ID> is where you will find your files (Like your My Documents, Favorites, and Desktop icons) Many of your settings will be stored in the registry in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive.

Basically, I would rebuild your profile, but BACK UP YOUR FILES FIRST!!!!! the way you rebuild your profile, is to delete the files and login again. Windows will act like you have never logged in before and create a new profile folder.

So ....the way you do it, is .... Login to the Administrator account in Windows 7.

Browse to C:\USERS folder. Make a back up copy of the folder that has the name of your Login ID.

Rename the <Login ID> folder to something Like <LoginID>OLD or whatever.

reboot your machine

login again using your credentials.

if that doesnt work, as long as you have backed up files, try going into control panel and creating a NEW user and login using that.

Then copy your important files back. (My documents, my music, etc) Don't copy the whole profile folder because you may copy whatever was corrupted right back. Just copy back the files you need.

Tip

Files in Desktop and User Account


The size of you user account has some effect on the speed of your computer during startup. You can view your user account size from the User Profiles frame mentioned above. Click on the Settings button in the User Profiles frame and you will see a list of users and the size of each of the users.

My own practice is to avoid storing files such as documents and pictures in my user account folders. Even though the user account has come pre-created with different folders for different types of documents such as the musics, pictures, bookmark favorites, documents and saved games, but I have dealt with problems that resulted from corrupted user profiles and the only way to recover the files is to connect the hard drive to another working machine. Well, that is way too troublesome for some people. In addition, some viruses attack through user profiles. Desktop files are stored in User Profiles. The more icons and files stored in the desktop, the slower startup you get. Thus, it will be wise to store the files to another drive or partition which will secure your files and also speed up your system slightly.

When I open my local disk seems to me is not accessible the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable


You can use Windows explorer to make sure you can access the local partition. If this will also not give you access, try to browse any shared folder using \\ip.address
you can right-click your hard-drive, go into security and make sure you have your user or group where you belong in there with min read rights. If its not there, and you are administrator then you will be able to change the owner permissions.

Windows cannot load the locally stored profile. Possible causes of this error include insufficient security rights or a corrupt local profile. If this problem persists contact your network administrator.


It looks your profile is corrupted. You can login with administrator's login id other than the local profile user id and rename the old profile located in c:\documents and settings\ your user login name folder
and rename the folder. After that logout and login again with your user id, one having problem with profile and again go to the c:\documents and settings\ your user id name folder which you renamed and move your critical data on desktop or my documents to the new profile.

MY pc does not start anymore. I have a Seagate hard drive ST380011A. I got the message: The following fail is missingC:/windows rootsystem32hal.dll


<windows root>system32hal.dll. is missing or corrupt. â How to fix it?â The Hal.dll file is the first file that boot.ini tells the system to look for at boot. â Looking at it this way, this error message can be rather misleading. In fact the reason could be a number of things, such as: â The boot.ini file is actually corrupt or damaged, â or it is pointing the Startup to look in the wrong place. The Hal.dll file is located in the System32 directory of your %SystemRoot% which in a default XP setup is:â C:WindowsSystem32.â You can use the Dos boot disk (or NTFS Reader above) to quickly determine if the file is missing.â If it is, then you should extract it from your XP CDrom and place it in its proper location.Boot to your XP CDrom, and then choose 'r' to go to the Recovery Console.â With your XP Cdrom in the drive, issue this command:Expand D:i386hal.dl_ C:Windowssystem32â â (This assumes the CDrom is D and your System Partition is C) â If this does not cure your issue this may be due to issues in your boot.ini file.â â The boot.ini file is actually corrupt or damaged, or it is pointing the Startup to look in the wrong place. Resolution:â The easiest way to fix this is to boot to the Recovery Console and replace the old boot.ini with a new one.â Once you have booted to the Recovery Console run these commands at the prompt:Attrib -H -R -S C:boot.iniâ â â (This removes the attributes and allows deletion). DEL C:boot.iniâ â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â (Deletes the corrupted boot.ini file)â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â BootCfg /Rebuildâ â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â (Recreates the new boot.ini file)If you would like to view the boot.ini file, you will need a boot disk to get to the DOS prompt.â If you have formatted with FAT32, then you may use a Windows boot disk (such as a W98 disk), but if you are running NTFS, you will need a NTFS reader boot disk, such as NTFS Reader For DOS which is available for download here.â To diagnose the problem, copy the boot.ini file from the hard drive (C:boot.ini) and open it with Notepad.â You will want to verify that the "Default=" line as well as the ARC path line are pointing to the right location.â Here is two examples of boot.ini files (ARC paths start with multi): [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect This is a sample of the above Boot.ini file after adding another partition running Windows 2000 Professional.

Corrupted hard disk drive or severely corrupted Windows
Attempt to check the hard disk drive for any errors by running the chkdsk error. To do this follow the below steps.

Finally, if during the Windows installation you encounter errors it's likely that your hard disk drive is bad.

Before booting shows 2 profile


You need to edit your boot.ini file Click on START, right click on MyComputer, click on properties. In the System Properties Window click on the Advanced tab at the top, then click on Settings under Startup and Recovery. Click on Edit to edit the startup options manually. it should open a notepad that looks similar to this: [boot loader] timeout=5 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOW S [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windo ws XP Media Center Edition" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptOut Under the [Operating Systems] sections is where you will have multiple entries for profiles. Delete the entire entry for the profile you don't use. Save the file afterwards and that should do it. Good Computing!
