Windows 7/Log on problem

Advertisement


Question
I have a ASUS laptop with window 7 starter. Recently when i switched on my laptop to log on i was not able to log on when asked to key in the password after the ASUS screen came out.When I keyed in the password the message appeared as below:
"The user profile service failed the log on.
User profile cannot be loaded."
So my question is how do i log on again?
Is there a way to bypass this password?
Please help.
Thank you.

Hi,

Boot into Safe Mode (http://www.computerhope.com/issues/chsafe.htm#03) so you get the administrator account and follow the instructions at:

There are 3 suggested methods to fix this. I suggest method #2 where you copy your data to another account. You can look at all 3 options and see which one suites you best.
