Log in ... log out Laptop woe :-(

  Dragon_Heart 19:35 16 Feb 2011

We have a Medion laptop running Vista Home Premium with 2 Gb ram.

It failed to start, even in safe mode, so tried the recovery disk. Ran recovery OK.

Can now use safe mode but when your try to reboot normally you get to the log on screen, click any one of the accounts and the machine gives the welcome screen then logs off again and back to log in screen or it will give welcome, message then screen goes blank with spasmodic disk activity.

No access to restore points ?

All tests check out.

Never experienced this problem previously.

Which did you run from Medion Recovery CD, Did you just run the Boot Files or what. If it does what you say then you have not run full System Restore from the CD as that is the bottom one on the list on the CD as you would get it to start but will lose all your photos and Docs on drive C:\

I did not run the full System Restore as I would treat that as the last option.

I have no photo's or doc's to lose as the laptop is used as a teaching aid.
