Windows 7: Not able to login on startup

Windows 7
 
 

Please can anyone help? I know I'm being impatient, I'm just really upset I can't get this thing to work at all. It won't bother me at all if I lose all my data and have to re-install Windows. I just want to be able to use the thing again.

Am I correct in saying you dont have a win 7 dvd? just a re-install dvd?
Yes.

Does the re-install DVD have a menu with several different options?

Could you list them for us ?

Sorry for such a late response, I've been busy these past few days.

I get to the menu that gives me the option to with 'Repair your computer' or 'Install Windows'. I've tried both and neither will work. As soon as I try to repair it hangs, and the same for re-installation.

I'm having this issue

I have a Dell Inspiron 1440, OS Windows 7
I tried to turn it on today and I got the "Launch Startup Repair" or "Start Windows Normally" --- neither option got me anywhere.
Starting normally brings me back to that screen over and over and over again.
Doing the "Launch Startup Repair" brings me to a blue screen with a light wispy design in the background and nothing happens. No repair, no popup windows, just a blue birdy wispy screen of nothingness.
I have NO idea what to do.

Dmberry and Hbach -

I recently came across this same exact issue: Windows 7 login screen while booting up but NO login box. Just the "blue background with the wispy stuff" and a pointer. No way around it, not even through Safe Mode. I absolutely could not get access to my desktop, start menu, etc.

I have a Sony VAIO, and I don't know if your computers will be able to do this or if you've already tried it but I thought I would suggest it since it seemed like a miracle to me. I did not have my Recovery Discs and I thought there was going to be no way I could get it to return to factory settings and I'd have to resort to buying the Windows 7 operating system and installing it, even though I should have been able to restore.

I did a live chat with the Sony tech support and they had me hit F10 on bootup which brought me to a screen that would allow me to do a full system recovery. I realize you don't have VAIOs, but I just wonder if you've tried hitting a different key aside from F8 to see if there's any options for your specific computers that have a sort of hidden, built-in recovery system.

Again I realize our computers are different brands but we experienced the same Windows 7 issue, so I thought I would let you know what I was able to do to fix it without the use of a Recovery Disc. It is unfortunately a format and reset to factory settings so you will lose your personal data, but it's better than an inoperable computer.

I hope this helped in some way!

For future reference there is a fix. It involves activating the built in Admin account and booting from it.

BTW this is a fairly old thread you will get more response if you start your own but thanks for posting the fix.

No one I spoke to during my 24 hour panic-mode ordeal mentioned anything about activating a built in Admin account, but I sure wish I would have heard about it! I'll have to research this for the future.

I saw that this was an older thread but the users with the problem seemed as desperate as I was today so I didn't want to start a new one, just wanted to let them know I found a solution in my specific case just to see if it could help them in theirs. I couldn't tell from this thread if they had found a solution yet or not. I hope they did!
