Windows 7: endless loop at login screen

endless loop at login screen

my work machine started acting up yesterday. even though i have it set to log in automatically, the log in screen started appearing suddenly when i boot. the only option is my regular account.

when i click it, the monitor (old crt) clicks off and on, like it's changing resolution. it goes blank for a second, then the login screen comes back up.

it takes some messing about, restarting, and lots of clicking, but eventually it logs in and i can work.

any thoughts? i'm baffled. and i'd rather not spend half the day reinstalling everything...

Bad drive? May sound strange but I wouldn't be surprised.

Maybe a video driver problem?

WLM endless download loop
