ctrl+alt+del pressed, no password prompt: unable to log in
Hello my issue is as follows:
->Win 7 Pro
->Boots up shows "press ctrl+alt+del" screen
->Once this is pressed, the prompt for the password does not show (mouse moves not frozen)
->Unable to recover from rescue cd
After toiling with this issue for some time I found that when the computer is shut down properly, the next login does not show the password prompt. If the computer is shut down via a 5 second power-button press, the password prompt appears the next time the computer is turned on after the "start widows normally" dos screen.
I had an older image of the os on a harddrive (replaced HD with solid state) that I used to "restore" from. The issue happened again some 6 days later. I can not keep restoring/backing up all the time as it is very time consuming (there is a lot of changing data on this computer and having to back up like this all the time is not a realistic solution).
What can be causing this issue? I would like to solve this issue without having to re-image and restore updated data. Any help or guidance is greatly appreciated.

Welcome Answersid to the windows 7 forums.
First could you fill out your system specifications so that we can see what kind of machine and such you
are working with.??
Also, when you restored the image of the hard disk to a SSD, can we assume that your re-installed the correct drivers?
