Windows 7: Can't login to my own username

18 Aug 2010   #1

Windows 7
Can't login to my own username

Hello all, today I tried to run my laptop on my External HDD from BIOS, and I pulled the info I needed off of the external. When I tried to go into BIOS to switch it back to make my laptop hard drive the main/only one, it gave me an error when I tried to login on the Windows password screen. This is the error it gave me - "The User Porfile Service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded".

I tried reseting the BIOS to default, and nothing happend. I tried to run in safe mode by tapping/holding F8 and it doesn't load the screen to chose

Is there something I can do to fix this error so I can log in? Any help would be great. Thank you all!

Dell - Inspiron Laptop / Intel® Core™ i5 Processor / 14" Display / 4GB Memory / 500GB Hard Drive - Mars Black - I14R-2265MRB (the laptop)
