Re: Laptop won't load up my profile



Tap away at f8 as you start the PC to enter Windows Recovery Console.  Use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode and hit enter.  If windows will load in this mode, from the Start Menu, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools and launch System Restore.  Pick a restore point before the issue with your profile and then proceed with the restore process.  When complete, Windows will reboot as normal.


If the above doesn't help, boot into Safe Mode again and select 'Start using last known good configuration' - hit enter and see if this will load your profile.
