    Vista Home Premium - Single User Profile - "user profile cannot be loaded"


    Hi all. I am running Vista Home Premium in a Dell Dimension Desktop
    which is about 6 months old.

    Right from the beginning, we have only ever had one user name to log
    into the pc.

    Out of the blue after not having anyother problems before , today , I
    tried to log in and got the message

    "The user Profile Service service failed the logon. User Profile cannot
    be loaded"

    I have tried to look up on this to sort it out , but all of the
    solutions involve logging in under a different admin name - but we do
    not have one.

    The other solution method I have found is to press F8 when he computer
    boots up - but this doesn't take me to any menus on my computer. My
    options are to press F2 For Setup Menu and F12 for Boot Menu

    F2 takes me to a bios screen , and F12 gives me the following options :

    Normal
    Bootable Hard Drive
    On-board CDROM Drive
    System Setup
    Hard Drive Diagnostics
    Boot To Utility Partition


    I thought there might be a way for me to do what I need to do by
    booting in cmd prompt or msdos? But I cannot find a way to boot into it.
    I can't even find a way to go into safe mode ( assuming I could get into
    safe mode? )
    Can somebody please help me.

    Many thanks

    Re: Vista Home Premium - Single User Profile - "user profile cannot be loaded"


    F8 results in my case that I can choose from which disk to start and not
    the Vista save mode. (pressing F8 every second as soon as you start to
    boot). First it costs me a day to get an internet connection (NIC driver
    problem). After logging out I have now the problem too "user profile
    cannot be loaded"

    So, how can I solve easily this trivial login problem?

    Yes I have read this before I mailed this forum, but I can't login via
    F8 and the alternative (clean install) is for me on this moment a very
    bad solution (I upgraded from XP). What I still can do is this *'Startup
    Repair - Vista Forums' (http://tinyurl.com/2n6coo)* (boot from CD and
    repair your computer (startup repair).

    Wouter,

    Are you able to use System Restore, from Option Two in this tutorial,
    to select a restore point dated before this problem?

    http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/76...store-how.html


    If all else fails, then this tutorial will show you how to do a clean
    install with a Upgrade version of Vista.

    http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/68...ade-vista.html

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    System restore is possible but I fixed a NIC driver problem and I don't
    know if the latest restore point includes my fix.. I think that upgrade
    from XP to Vista isn't a good idea. Clean install avoids IMHO trivial
    problems...

    I hope that one of the repair methods will work for me, because with a
    clean install I loose my personal data...

    Well Wouter,

    You could also try a repair (upgrade) install to see if it can salvage
    it for you. If nothing else, you should be able to retrieve and backup
    any data you want afterwards before doing a clean install.

    Wouter,

    I'm happy to hear that you almost got it all sorted out. See if this
    tutorial can help you with the computer waking up from hibernation mode.
    I would look at the BIOS and Network device to make sure that the "Wake
    On..." options are disabled.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    First I solved 'this'
    (http://www.vistax64.com/network-inte...tml#post794898)
    problem, last week ;-)

    *Before* I upgrade from XP-SP3 to Vista Ultimate I could enter the BIOS
    with F2. Now F2 enter the Windows Bootmanager :confused:

    I don't think that I succeed to implement the power saving options
    (which I couldn't either with XP). F.i. in the advanced options of my
    NIC (3COM Gigabit LOM (3c940) there isn't an entry
    "Shutdown-Wake-on-LAN". I see only "Wake up Capabilities" (is now both)
    no option disable..

    The only relevant option in the P4P800 Bios (Power menu) is the Power
    Management/APM (enable/disable) which is enabled default, but I couldn't
    now in the BIOS setup of my system to disable this feature. I don't see
    (in the user manual) the *ACPI mode* (*S3* or *S1* is enabled). However,
    the command "powercfg -a" results in:
    C:\Users\wouter>powercfg -a
    The following sleep states are available on this system: Standby ( S1
    S3 ) Hiber
    nate Hybrid Sleep
    The following sleep states are not available on this system:
    Standby (S2)
    The system firmware does not support this standby state.

    C:\Users\wouter>
