Windows 7: No logon screen after ctrl alt delete windows 7

No logon screen after ctrl alt delete windows 7

Hi guys,

kinda new here and wan't to get rid of my annoying problem.
after a bad shutdown (hard) my laptop acted strange the very next morning.
windows loads up perfect and comes into the CTRL - ALT - DELETE screen.
after pressing these buttons, normally i must type my password but since my problem is ongoing, no screen shows after.

I have tried all kind of troubleshooting, like start in debug mode, restore to certain
points, nothing helped.

after CTRL - ALT - Delete, nothing happens, mouse can move though but
no window were i can put my password. If i wait for a long period, the ctrl alt del screen reappears.

I do not have this problem in safe mode. I logged on and try to enable auto logon
but this option is disabled for me. only thing i can do is disabling the need for ctr alt del. but that won't help either. I still have to press ok for:
Prive system Authorization required.

can anyone help me with this problem?

more info while at the logon screen:

mouse works normal
5x shift works
Accessesibility options can be used
shutdown button works (shuts down)

Seems like some of your drivers might be messed up.
Try booting in Safe Mode and removing drivers starting with the display driver and reboot after each. (make sure you have the driver installation disks/packages). Once you find out which is corrupted, you can install the drivers.

If this is failing in safe mode, it's time for a Windows repair.

Get the Windows CD, boot to CD and repair your Windows Installation.
