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

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

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

    "The user Profile Service service failed the logon. User Profile canno
    be loaded

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

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

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

    Norma
    Bootable Hard Driv
    On-board CDROM Driv
    System Setu
    Hard Drive Diagnostic
    Boot To Utility Partitio

    I thought there might be a way for me to do what I need to do b
    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 int
    safe mode?
    Can somebody please help me

    Many thank

    Tch810

    F8 results in my case that I can choose from which disk to start and no
    the Vista save mode. (pressing F8 every second as soon as you start t
    boot). First it costs me a day to get an internet connection (NIC drive
    problem). After logging out I have now the problem too "user profil
    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 vi
    F8 and the alternative (clean install) is for me on this moment a ver
    bad solution (I upgraded from XP). What I still can do is this *'Startu
    Repair - Vista Forums' (http://tinyurl.com/2n6coo)* (boot from CD an
    repair your computer (startup repair)

    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/76905-system-restore-how.htm

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

    Hope this helps

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

    I hope that one of the repair methods will work for me, because with
    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.

    I'm happy to hear that you almost got it all sorted out. See if thi
    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 "Wak
    On..." options are disabled

    First I solved 'this'
    (http://www.vistax64.com/network-internet/171205-problem-connecting-internet.html#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>

    Wouter,

    I must admit that I am not sure why your sleep mode is not functioning
    correctly. When you upgraded from XP SP3 to Vista, did you do so by a
    clean install or upgrade to Vista from within XP. If the later, then you
    may need to do a clean install of Vista instead to clear out any bad
    remnants of XP that may be causing problems.
