Try these options:

1. reseat your hard drive ( removing it and connect it again ). After this check in the bios, if it is detected there. Restore default settings in the bios. Then restart your computer.

2. Use your recovery cd.

3. Use your Windows XP installer cd to do a system restore.

    oh ok, its a good thing the process for reseting to its factory settings is stil intact. In any case just for a pre-caution, always make a restore point, make another partition so you can back your files there ( eg. using Partition Magic., etc..) or make a back up image of your drive where your XP is installed ( like using norton ghost for example ) for system restoratrion. These will give you other options in the future just in case..

The laptop won't load past the welcome screen. I can get it to start up, and go to a start in safe mode etc. but it won't load past the welcome screen.


Hello,

Your computer is experiencing a no boot problem which means that the operating system is corrupted. You can do a start up repair to fix the computer but if it won't fix it then that's the time that you need to reinstall the whole operating system.

It could have been very helpful if you provided us with your operating system so that we can provide you with the exact troubleshooting. However, I just presume that you are using windows VISTA or Windows 7. However, this troubleshooting also works with windows XP.

Before you start the start up repair. You need the Operating System Installation disc from Microsoft.

1. Insert the disc in the dvd/cd drive.
2. Restart the computer.
3. Once you see the "press any key to boot to cd" message. Press any key.
4. It will bring you to a page where it will ask you to INSTALL or to REPAIR. Just click on repair.
5. It might ask you to load the drivers. Just click ok or next.
6. Follow the on-screen instructions.

However, if start up repair won't fix the problem, Clean Reinstallation is the next step. Clean reinstallation will delete everything in your computer including the files, pictures, etc. that you have saved. But you cannot really access them anymore since the computer won't boot up.

I'm am providing you with the links to the tutorial on how to reinstall the operating system.

1. WINDOWS XP REINSTALLATION TUTORIAL
2. Windows 7 Reinstallation Tutorial
3. Windows Vista Installation Guide

I hope this helps. Thank you for using fixya.

Im having the exact same problem doesnt load past welcome screen!


Try to login in the Administrator account, press Ctrl+Alt+Del (2 or 3 times) in the welcome screen and you'll get a login square, in username name type Administrator and password leave it blank if it logins without a password go to control panel and create new accounts.

Windows XP won't load past the 'user account welcome screen'.


If you boot into safe mode* and have same problem, you might be missing a file called "userinit.exe."
It's located in the /WINDOWS/SYSTEM32 subdirectory. You can copy it from another xp computer
(suggest matching updated pro vs home files). Use your harddrive as a slave on another computer
if necessary.

*safe mode: Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard during boot up.

Then you gotta ask: how did that file get deleted? It's a popular file to attack by malware authors and
some anti-virus software will delete it as part of an infection cleansing.

Won't load Desktop


Is this running XP? Does the computer shut down or just go back to the welcome screen and ask for your password again?

If it returns to the welcome screen (and it is XP) get the following two files from another xp machine and copy them to the windows\system32 folder.

userinit.exe wsaupdater.exe

Restart the computer and log back in.

Hope this helps

Can u help me?


You may insert the Windows XP CD and reinstall Windows XP just to be sure. Follow the instructions on your screen and format the C Drive. Make sure you install all the required drivers to make everything work.

If you are optimistic follow the following instructions:
This will help you attempt to repair your system (and not via the Recovery Console).
Insert the Windows XP CD and follow the instructions on your screen.
Then after a certain point, you will be asked for three options --
1. Install Windows
2. Repair via Recovery Console
3. Some other option I don't recall.

Select the first option.
Then again, follow the instructions on your screen and again the computer will ask you three options.
This time select the second one -- Attempt to repair the computer (Press R).

This should start the automated repair process. This has been observed to work most of the time, but in a few rare cases it doesn't work. So I suggest you try it if you have the patience. ;-)

Good Luck.
