i have ad my laptop for just over a year now, and i have had no problems with it. I was using it fine yesterday, and then i went to go onto it last night and after i put my password into it it come up with the message 'The user profile service service failed to logon'. i have looked on man websites to find an answer to what i should do, and most of the websites tell me to do a system restore, but then when i go to do that it comes up with the message ' Your computer is running in a limited diagnostic state. If you use System restore in this limited state, you cannot undo the restore operation'. anyone got any ideas, as i realy need to use my computer.
You could also check to see if the User Profile Service is running in "Services" - can be accessed via Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Services - Scroll down to "User Profile Service" and select it - if it NOT running select "Restart the Service" from left hand pane.
This service is responsible for loading and unloading USER PROFILES. If this service is stopped or disabled, users will no longer be able to logon or logoff, applications may have problems getting to user's data, and components registered to receive profile event notifications will not receive them.
"Your computer is running in a limited diagnostic state"
GO to START - RUN - type "msconfig" (without the commas) - on the SYSTEM CONFIGURATION screen - GENERAL TAB Make sure NORMAL STARTUP (Load all device drivers and services) is selected - if not do that then click APPLY - OK
