windows login failure

  [DELETED] 12:11 31 Jul 2003

Have got pc running win 2000. Was all ok. Put in second hard drive to us as backup. When booted up pc it saw the drive but due to a error I had to reboot to correct error. When I rebooted the computer will not let me get past the 2000 login screen. When I put in my usual administrator password the screen goes blue for afew seconds and then asks me again. I cannot get any further than this. The details are correct because if i have a typing error then is says that my password is not correct. If I remove the second drive then the same thing happens. some settings have been corupted. I cannot boot in safe mode or last good config. I did get into dos at one point and partitions d and e of the first hard drives are not recognised

Help Me

Can you boot from the Win2k CD and try a repair / reinstall?

Do you have data on the drive that you need? If not, I would suggest that you reformat and re-partition the HDD again.

If you do have data you need, then wait for some more info to come through from other users.
