problems login screen - "Other User"

Hi,
I have one big problem. yesterday i was having problems with my laptop, Dell XPS 14z. It was going way slow. Dont know why. I did a complete restore to the date that i but it. Everything went fine. But instead of setup screen where i can create username, it shows login screen. where only "Other User" with a blank icon is. I cant login to it. I did the restore 3 times, but the problem is still there. Im stuck. I have read serveral threads on different forums, but they arent for any help because peoples screens it shows Other user and last user loged in. But in my case it only show Other user. please help...

Boot to the Advanced Options Boot menu by pressing F8 during startup.
Select Safe Mode, see if you can login there.

When you say I did a complete restore to the date that i but it do you mean you used the built in System Recovery to put it back to factory new state?

I would get the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 - everything you need is in the blue link.

Since you know Dell Recovery is not working correctly you can delete it's partition along with all others during install to get the cleanest slate. I would first run Dell Diagnostics from it's F12 link, but afterwards if needed you can download and run it from
Dell DIagnostics downoad

You can use English if you want.

If you want Norweigan then download the ISO provided in that language, run the eicfg removal tool on it to unlock all versions, then burn to DVD or write to flash stick using the tool provided in Step 2, during install choose only your licensed version on COA sticker.
