Win XP SP2 Logs in then Logs out

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by awallwork at sign gmail dot com, Oct 14, 2004.

  1. Sorry if this shows up twice, google groups beta 2 seems to be in a bad
    mood

    I have a laptop with winXP Home SP2, that for some reason came to
    password screen and all accounts were locked out. Using EBCD password
    recovery to unlock the accounts, it logs in, then right away logs out.
    No flash of desktop icons, I see wallpaper for a second, that's it
    Any suggestions

    Thanks

    Have you by chance moved the install of XP to a new hard drive that may
    have a different drive letter assignment? For example, copying an
    installation off of a D: drive to a C: drive will cause what you are
    describing because, at the point of login, the OS will try to load things
    from D: ... and fail.

    It's somebody else's machine. I installed it myself off a winxp disk
    to c (freshly dban'd and formatted) I don't think they'd go into
    anything that would edit drive assignments.
