Win XP Home SP2 stuck on blue logon screen... help?
new problem... my old Sony Vaio laptop is having some weird problems with its windows... when you power it up, it shows the Vaio screen, then the black Windows XP loading screen, then when it gets to the blue logon screen, it just shows the XP logo, but no accounts to choose from...
and it just is stuck there...
i dont know what to do, or what caused this... it worked fine, then i shut it down, and when i turned it on it did this...
maybe it had something to do with me using this laptop to format another hard drive that i hooked up to it... i used Western Digital's Data Lifeguard Tools program to format a hard drive that i hooked up to it using a USB external enclosure... but im positive that i didnt accidentally format my laptop HD or anything like that... tho it might have messed with my boot settings possibly?
i dont even know how to get into the laptop's BIOS to see where its booting from... and actually, if it wasnt booting from its own HD, then windows wouldnt even load, would it?
so what happened to my accounts?
why is it stuck at this screen?
any help would be appreciated... thanks - RK
